    NRA Elections 2015 Held Amidst Scandalous Accusations

    The National Rifle Association held their annual conference last week in Nashville, Tennessee, attracting tens of thousands of members and media. The show featured country music acts, vendors from all sectors of the firearms industry, and most of the Republican politicians that will be running for president in 2016. Attendees heard from each of the presumptive candidates as well as Wayne LaPierrre, Executive Vice President of the NRA. This was a chance for conservatives to see what they will have to choose from in November of 2016. The Board of Directors was also presented. At the NRA Elections 2015, Allan…

    Why We Will Never Stop Violent Crime

    There is a never ending debate in this country about firearms and their place in our society. Some believe that firearms have no place in the “civilized” world. It doesn’t matter to them that the founding fathers felt that firearms were so important to our freedoms that they wrote the Second Amendment. The majority of Americans believe that to one degree or another citizens should be able to own firearms under certain conditions. The reason most commonly cited during this hotly contested debate is violent crime — more specifically, crimes where firearms were used. Those wishing to blame guns and…

    Pediatrician Wants to Know if You Own Guns

    An opinion piece in the New York Times written by Dr. Catherine Musemeche espouses the virtues of pediatricians asking you and your children if there are guns in the home and if you have them properly stored. The doctor also wants her and her colleagues to explain the dangers to you and your children of having guns in the home. This lady also wrote a piece in 2012 about how a ban on advertising is helping kids not be so fat. I just thought that today’s kids are fat because they don’t play outside or ride their bikes everywhere, like…

Obama Pushing Gun Control, America Pushing Back

Apr 14, 2015

The numbers are in, and it’s official; President Obama is great for the firearms industry. Thanks to Obama and his desire to dismantle the Second Amendment and disarm America, the firearms industry has had record-setting sales. Post Sandy Hook gun sales surged in traditionally liberal states like California and Connecticut. Obama and his followers pushed for stricter gun laws and gun bans. He was stymied by a democrat-led Senate at every turn. This failure to get federal gun-control enacted shows that those career politicians from democrat party want to be reelected and they realize that supporting gun control is a…

2nd Amendment Legislation Nationwide Update

Apr 13, 2015

Many state legislative sessions have ended or are coming to end soon, so it’s time to start examining the results. As expected, many southern and western states have passed laws that could be called pro-gun, while traditionally liberal states are continuing their attempts to dismantle not only the Second Amendment, but the Bill of Rights itself. No matter where one falls on the political spectrum, the loss of rights is bad for all of us—conservative, liberal, libertarian, or those somewhere in the middle. If we as citizens don’t start paying close attention, we will awake one day to a country…

Kansas Governor Signs Permitless Concealed Carry

Apr 10, 2015

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed Senate Bill 45 into law, making permitless concealed carry legal in the state. The NRA had been backing this bill from the beginning and is claiming a huge victory. The bill was also fought against just as hard by groups like Bloomberg’s Mayors and Moms Demand Action. The law will allow an eligible person to carry concealed without having to obtain a permit from the government. Before this new law, Kansans were allowed to openly carry firearms, but if a woman wanted to put the gun in her purse or if a person’s coat accidentally…

Do You Have Tactical Walls and Lighting?

Apr 10, 2015

Many of us in the firearms community have multiple guns. Some of us have a few rifles, a pistol, and perhaps shotguns.  In fact, the most common type of firearm for home protection is the venerable 12 gauge shotgun. If you’re anything like me, the first thing you wanted to do to your “house gun” is soup it up with something tactical.  When I purchased my first gun, the first thing I did was buy a small tactical light for my Springfield XD-9.  My tactical light wasn’t anything special as I recall, as it only produced about 60 lumens (or…

VIDEO: Mayors Against Cars

Apr 9, 2015

Youtuber Billy Johnson is well-known for his rants on ethics. With more than 31k subscribers, he makes bold, fact-driven videos that have gone viral. His latest video, “Mayors Against Cars” (a spin off of Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns“), challenges anti-gun views while comparing gun owners to vehicle drivers. Billy stated on his Facebook page, “I fear a world where people don’t listen.” Billy’s biggest project is a documentary called Protecting Liberty. If you like what you see in this video, Billy’s documentary is likely to be similar, yet more extensive and in-depth with more marketing. If you would like…

Boston Bomber Eligible for Death Penalty

Apr 8, 2015

A verdict has finally been reached today in the Boston Marathon bombing trial after an 11 1/2 hour deliberation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Aloke Chakravarty said, “The defendant brought terrorism into the backyards and main streets.” He added, “The defendant thought that his values were more important than the people around him. He wanted to awake the mujahedeen, the holy warriors, so he chose Patriots’ Day, Marathon Monday.” Accused Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense attorney said that 19 year-old Tsaranev only went along with his 26 year-old brother Tamerlan’s plan, who was shot and killed after the bombing in a confrontation with…

Arkansas Becomes Latest Shall Certify State

Apr 7, 2015

TUCSON, ARIZ. – Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson has signed HB1488 sponsored by Representative Tim Lemons (R-43). HB1488 was drafted by the NFA Freedom Alliance (NFAFA) at the request of Representative Lemons. With the Governor’s signature, HB1488 will be effective 90 days after the legislature adjourns. So the effective date should be sometime in August. Arkansas becomes the eighth state to enact “Shall Certify” legislation which compels Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEO’s) to certify ATF National Firearms Act paperwork for any applicant who is not a prohibited possessor by state or federal law. “When a constituent of Representative Lemons was looking for…

Armed Veteran Stops Bank Robbery

Apr 7, 2015

COBB COUNTY, GA — Last Tuesday, a 25 year-old man by the name of Mark Katchem attempted to rob a Wells Fargo bank, and he almost got away with it. Katchem walked into the bank that day and slipped the teller a threatening note demanding money. The teller, who was probably trying to avoid a violent situation, handed Katchem the money. The thief walked out of the bank, satisfied that the scheme had gone smoothly and that he now had some free cash in his pocket. Little did Katchem know that a veteran, who has not been identified, was watching…

Tennessee Passes Reform of Defense to Prosecution for NFA Owners

Apr 6, 2015

TUCSON, ARIZ. – In a major advance for NFA gun owners, the Tennessee Legislature resoundingly passed Senate Bill 181 and House Bill 136 (companion bills), which reform Tennessee’s so-called “Defense to Prosecution Law” (DTP). DTP laws say that NFA items are technically illegal, but that the owner has a defense to prosecution if the item is registered with the BATFE pursuant to the National Firearms Act. The practical effect is that a person arrested for possession of an NFA item in a DTP state can offer the registration as a valid defense in court. “There are a number of states that have these defense-to-prosecution…
