Old Man Defends Property and Lives?! How Awful, sneers the Associated Press
I read about the following over at the always astute VodkaPundit. Not only does it serve to illustrate media stealth bias, but it also shines light on attitudes too prevalent in our society today… personal responsibility? That’s hogwash! Shopkeeper ‘didn’t want to shoot’ robbers** 2 suspects dead, 2 injured after 72-year-old opens fire in New York City NEW YORK – The sidewalk outside the Harlem | Read More »
National Rifle Association Totally Capitulates on Sotomayor
It took me blogging at RedState pointing out that the NRA was missing in action on Sotomayor for the NRA to do anything about her nomination. And when the NRA engaged, it did so by sending out a letter publicly telling Sotomayor what she needed to say so the NRA would not score her vote. Apparently, it worked. The NRA knows it cannot support Sotomayor’s | Read More »
NRA Expresses “Dismay” over Sotomayor Nomination
While a little late and lacking an official position against her, the National Rifle Association has expressed its “very strong concerns” with the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court. In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy and Republican Ranking Member Jeff Sessions, the NRA used particularly harsh language for an organization often hesitant – to say the least | Read More »

The NRA is MIA on Sonia Sotomayor
The National Rifle Association, whose oft stated aim is to protect our Second Amendment rights, is missing in action in the confirmation battle over Sonia Sotomayor, the most anti-gun nominee that President Obama could have nominated to the Supreme Court. In the two cases to come before her on the Second Circuit (an unpublished opinion and the more recent Maloney v. Cuomo case), she made | Read More »
Two Shootin’ Tools for Sister Sarah
NRA members, keep an eye out for your copy of May’s American Rifleman, if it hasn’t already arrived. According to the latest edition of the magazine, Bob Reynolds, gunsmith and owner of Templar Consulting LLC, will make a special presentation at the NRA Foundation Banquet on May 14. It’s a modified AR-15 (civilian version of the milspec M16 rifle), specially customized in honor of Gov. | Read More »
The Obama administration’s mistakes on the assault weapon ban.
Note plural. Mistake #1: picking an Attorney General and administration spokesman who doesn’t even know current firearms law. Eric Holder was on today announcing that the Obama administration was going to bring back the “assault weapons” ban. As Purple Avenger of Ace of Spades notes, this is the same guy who called for making armor piercing bullets (“cop-killers”) illegal…
Best President’s Day Sale Ad EVER
Normally I don’t use my diary entries to plug products, but this morning I got the Best President’s Day Sale ad EVER from the National Rifle Association. With a new President and a gun-grabbing Attorney General in office, not to mention the all-Democrat Congress, I hope everyone at Redstate will consider buying some of these President’s Day Sale items to support the National Rifle Association. | Read More »

Time for the NRA and Gun Owners to Fight
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has stated that the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution does not apply the Second Amendment to the states. We need to fight this ruling. The NRA needs to file a cert petition with the SCOTUS to get this under control. We need to get this before Obama and the socialist justice department get their way and appoint new justices to the Court. We did not win | Read More »
Will Gillibrand Flip on NRA?
She had a safe seat in Congress. Now, she’s looking at a primary. Kirsten Gillibrand, New York Governor David Patterson’s choice to succeed Hillary Clinton in the Senate, is going to face intense pressure to renounce her support for the NRA. Having a 100 percent NRA record is safer for an upstate New York congresswoman than for a senator representing the entire state. So will | Read More »
National Buy A Long Gun Day
I was trying to think of a way to express the proper sentiment on this day on which GWB stops being the President, replaced by one who will be considerably less concerned with our freedom and much more concerned with how much money he can get out of us in taxes. The answer came quickly: a new stainless steel finish clip-loaded Semi-Auto by US maker Remington in the | Read More »
The Other Side of the NRA Coin
Jim Geraghty presents the other side of the NRA coin on the Holder matter here. I wanted to be sure to highlight it: The risk of defeat is high, and the rewards for victory are pretty small. And when you pick your hill to die on, you have to recognize that the consequence of failure is that you die. Beyond differences on strategy and priorities, | Read More »
BREAKING: National Rifle Association Wusses Out On Holder
The NRA Grassroots Hotline is 1-800-392-8683. Remember, if they tell you they are opposed to Holder, ask if they are going to score a vote and testify. The answer is “no.” They’re just going to send a letter. Sources inside the National Rifle Association tell me the NRA has succumbed to pressure from Democrats to not actively oppose Eric Holder. Holder has strident, well known | Read More »
National Parks Allow Right To Carry
There’s some very good news this morning from the NRA-ILA and the Department of the Interior. Many members of this blog will recall my posts from a few months back urging everyone to take part in the comment period on the proposed rule change that would extend right-to-carry laws in our National Parks. The rule change is good law, it’s consistent with Federalist principles, and | Read More »
Please welcome to the world, The Israeli National Rifle Association.
Is a Second Amendment in Israel’s near future ? The Israeli National Rifle Association “Founded in October of 2008, the Israeli NRA was created with the idea of uniting all Israeli citizens that believe in the right to self defense. Our purpose is to lobby members of Knesset to pass laws allowing all law abiding Israeli citizens who have completed military service, to own and | Read More »
