On Friday, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition, joined several other gun rights groups in announcing that it opposes the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 introduced in the U.S. Senate last week. The legislation introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and signed by a host of other Democrats, like earlier versions, relies on wrongfully defining commonly-owned semi-automatic rifles based on certain cosmetic features.
The New York Times’ Andrew Ross Sorkin figured it out. Criminal misuse of firearms is the fault of none other than credit card companies. This idea would be laughable if it weren’t for the absurd assumptions Sorkin makes to achieve this radical agenda. We weren’t the only ones who thought so. Several news organizations and think tanks quickly jumped and called it an effort “to kill the Bill of Rights.”
Democrats voted overwhelmingly for U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to become Speaker of the House in the new Congress. She promises to make gun control a priority. NSSF’s Larry Keane told the Washington Times what we can expect.
Everyone has that kitchen drawer. That’s the one where a book of matches, take-out menus, extra cell-phone power cords, pet treats, a pack of gum, and a hammer are kept. That is, of course, if you could only find them under the rest of the junk in there. That’s sort of what our state-by-state landscape looks like when it comes to firearms legislation after this week’s midterm elections. It’s ugly, but if you dig, there’s something worth finding.
Our industry has served this nation since its inception. George Washington scouted and approved the site upon which Springfield Armory was built. The factory churned our rifles, even machine guns and grenade launchers for almost two centuries that our military carried into war. John Moses Browning’s designs have seen service in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Somalia, and the wars in which I served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
