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 »
How Palin is Dragging Down the Ticket, Part MCMXII.
The nerve! NRA hoping ads bag win for McCain Group pays to have message wrapped around newspapers. WASHINGTON | The National Rifle Association is planning an Election Day ad blitz in Pennsylvania and other battlegrounds, delivering an anti-Barack Obama message to the doorsteps of thousands of newspaper readers, including subscribers to The Morning Call. The gun lobby, which has endorsed GOP candidate John McCain, has | Read More »
The new NRA ad: Or, Red Meat is for wimps.
They do “rip it off the darn cow yourself if you’re so hungry.” Looks like the NRA’s endorsement of McCain – which, might I add, is pretty much all due to Sarah Palin – is going to pay some dividends: Let me put it this way: do you know how I’ll replace really egregiously bad attempts at agitprop with various and sundry YouTube videos? Just | Read More »
You are home and a Felon breaks in what rights will you have under The One
The NRA has a GREAT ad about Barack Obama today and we all know WE here love our Second Amendment….Obama has voted 4 times in the IL Senate so that you cannot have a weapon in your house to protect your family…..funny how that is the same number of times he voted to save the life of a baby who survived an abortion (MURDER) attempt….he | Read More »
An endorsement bonanza for McCain-Palin
Promoted from diaries. I’d also like to note something that Geraghty did: no Republican candidate since 1980 has won the Presidency without the endorsement of the NRA. True, there were only two (Bush in ’92; Dole in ’96), but it was still a necessary hurdle for McCain to cross. – Moe Lane Today the McCain-Palin team raked in a bonanza of endorsements. According to conventional | Read More »
NRA Full Page Ad in USA TODAY
NRA offically endorsed McCain today. There previous efforts were drowned out by the financial collapse. Perhaps, now that there is a lull in the media they will get more traction. They bought a full page ad in the USA TODAY. I’m not sure if it was in today’s paper, but you can see it here: http://www.gunbanobama.com/Templates/c63367a2-996a-422c-9afd-0d6f49a0ca86/Documents/NRA_obamausatoday1009.pdf
Mark Warner: Christian Coalition, Right-to-Lifers, NRA, home-schoolers “threatening what it means to be an American.”
It’s still a filthy thing to say. Filthy, partisan, and untrue. That’s all. Just wanted to make sure that nobody reading this who planned to vote for Warner can ever claim that they didn’t know. Moe Lane PS: Jim Gilmore’s donation page.
Factcheck.org Not So Factual On Obama’s Gun Views
First off, apologies for this cross-post from We Rush Daily But I felt it was important to get this out. It came to my attention today in an email I received from the NRA-ILA regarding the latest goings on at the NRA. Scanning through the email, I noted a point where the NRA took issue with past statements on the part of Mr. Obama on | Read More »

Fellow gun owners, in just over 40 days we are going to elect a new President of the USA. He will serve 4 years. I understand that the economy is not at its best right now. I understand unemployment rates are up, and the value of the dollar is down. We are in a war that has drug on longer then some think it should | Read More »
