The Real Reason Democrats Want To Repeal The Second Amendment And Confiscate Firearms

As Democrats move further to the Left their demands for radical social change will continue to grow, and their readiness to achieve it through violent means will grow commensurately. Individual firearms ownership remains the one sure impediment to their ambitions.

The Fake News About Machine Guns In Las Vegas Attack

A “bumpfire stock,” as was apparently used in the Las Vegas attack, is not a "machine gun" and does not change how the gun loads or fires – but that won't stop cynical Democrats from trying to ban them.

Weak-Kneed Ryan Stalls National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan isn't "weak-kneed" on national reciprocity or rolling back Obama-era gun control and other anti-constitutional legislation, he's on the other side.

Is the Second Amendment Only for the Elite?

The Framers of the Constitution did not reserve the right of self-defense to those elite members of society whose position or wealth provides them with armed guards. When the courts fail to enforce the promises of the Constitution, then it is up to the legislature to act. We urge Congress to take up and pass a national concealed carry bill.

Trump vs the Cult of Political Correctness

When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.

Tim Macy: Hillary Clinton’s Five Point Plan to Destroy the Second Amendment

With an estimated 80 to 100 million gun owners in America (about a third of the electorate) pro-gun voters could put an end to the political aspirations of the current generation of Clintons.  And gun owners have every reason to shudder at the thought of another Clinton in the White House.

Yes, Hillary Clinton Will Take Your Guns

Here's why Mrs. Clinton is so dangerous. It’s not that she has the policy on firearms ownership wrong or that her assessment of human nature is softheaded. She has the policy exactly right – if you want to impose despotism on America – and she and her supporters on the Far-Left understand that for them to take power permanently you must be disarmed.

Kasich Spits on the Second Amendment

The Heller and McDonald cases which finally codified the Second Amendment as in individual right were passed on a knife edge, and that knife is about to turn around and slash in the other direction if either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton – or John Kasich – are allowed to fill not only this seat on the court but the likely three or four to follow.

Senator Jeff Sessions: Obama Seeks To Disarm Americans While Freeing Most Dangerous Criminals

The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is not disarming them.  The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is to arrest, prosecute, convict and jail criminal offenders, especially armed career criminals illegally using guns. This is the way to reduce gun violence.

GOA: Yes, Obama IS Coming After Your Guns

Obama believes that because terrorists and some who are mentally deranged want to kill us, we should take a closer look at our gun laws. On that point, we agree:  We do need to reexamine our gun laws.  But what will make us safer is to repeal unconstitutional gun laws.   Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Thank Paul Ryan For Obama’s Gun Grab

When the details and the text of Obama’s gun grab become public don’t blame Obama – blame Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the spineless Capitol Hill Republicans who elected them, passed the Omnibus, and empowered Obama to spend his last year in office attacking constitutional liberty, stripping you of your rights and fundamentally changing America.

ATF again under conservative fire

Tim Devaney, The Hill

It’s a blatant “power grab” that runs counter to the spirit of the Second Amendment, said Michael Hammond, legislative counsel at Gun Owners of America. “They’re going to take out the gun by taking out the ammunition,” Hammond told The Hill. “If you have a gun that has no bullets in it, you can use it as a door stop or hit people over the head with it, but it’s basically no longer a gun."

Gun Owners Of America Comes Out Against Boehner

In a move that is the political equivalent of treason, Speaker Boehner colluded with Barack Obama and Harry Reid in order to approve the anti-gun Cromnibus bill. Now GOA has sent this simple message to Republican Members of the House of Representative: Don't vote for John Boehner. Vote for a Pro-Gun Speaker! 

It's the Primaries, Stupid! West Virginia Congressional District 2 Alex Mooney

The U.N. Threat to the Second Amendment Becomes Real

Given Obama’s record of ignoring the Constitution, let alone the laws Congress passes, we urge you to call or e-mail your Senators (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand that they vote "NO" on ratification and be vigilant against any Obama action to implement the UN Arms Trade Treaty through executive orders or other extra-constitutional means.
