NRA: Federal Appeals Court’s Shocking Pronouncement on Your Rights

A decision this week by the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit is a stark and sobering reminder of the utter disdain and denial with which many judges continue to treat the right to keep and bear arms. Taken to its logical extreme, the opinion declares open season on law-abiding Americans who choose to carry firearms for self-defense. It may well be the most anti-gun ruling from any court of the modern era.

California Proposition 63 — Magazine Bans, Ammo Licensing, and More!

Regulations of ammunition sales, requirements forcing patrons to have a license to buy ammunition, background checks to buy ammunition, large capacity magazine bans, reversing grandfathered protections… California’s Proposition 63 even requires ammunition legally purchased out of state and then brought into California a crime unless shipped through a licensed firearm dealer. These are only some of the new regulation from Proposition 63. Read the full story.

NRA: California — Prisoners Of The State

Californians face a bleaker, and more dangerous, future with the passage of ill-advised state ballot initiatives—two of which will likely work in tandem to increase crime rates and endanger law-abiding citizens, according to law enforcement officials—Proposition 57 releases violent criminals for budgetary reasons, while Proposition 63 drastically restricts residents’ ability to defend themselves.

NRA: Corporate Lawyers Muddying the Waters Around Gun Laws

Whether or not you supported him as a candidate, we would all like to think the next President will defend our rights under the Second Amendment. Early indicators are positive, but that does not mean the threat is diminished. It simply means we have one less entity against us. The threat from the antis is alive and they are up to their old tricks. In an attempt to counter the efforts of the NRA-ILA, and groups such as the Second Amendment Foundation, the anti gunners have formed anti-Firearms Accountability Counsel Task Force.

NRA: Flawed Study Takes Aim at “Stand Your Ground”

Donald Trump won the election, which has allowed many to conclude that the Second Amendment dodged an anti-gun bullet. You may agree or disagree, but one thing is for sure, the anti gunners have not given up their agenda—in the United States and across the pond. In a recent article published by the NRA, the Journal of the American Medical Association’s (JAMA) takes aim at Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.

It’s gratifying to see how conscientious the huge majority of carry permit holders are, and how seriously they take their responsibilities. Despite what the mainstream media would have you believe, these folks are not just numerous—now somewhere north of 14 million nationwide—but also astonishingly law-abiding—6 to 10 times more so than law enforcement, who are in turn 30 times more law-abiding than the general public. However, they are plagued by a few common problems.

NRA: Gun Control Mind Games

Gun control advocates would have you believe, if only there were background check requirements for all gun sales and transfers and if only the so-called “private sale loophole” was repealed, criminals would no longer be able to obtain guns online or at gun shows without a background check. Then, they’d have you believe, we’d see an end to the proliferation of guns and “gun violence.” Who needs empirical evidence when you can have “magical thinking?”
