Rep. Steve Scalise Survives Assassination Attempt To Destroy Chuck Todd

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

The “Meet the Press” host decided to spend the entire aired portion of his interview with the House majority whip pushing gun control. For eight minutes, Todd focused on what he sees as Scalise’s political shortcomings, and badgered him to adopt the views of his political opponents. Scalise, for his part, spent the entirety of the interview making Todd look like the uninformed and naive partisan activist he is.

Another Tradition Never Trump Conservatives Won’t Conserve

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Take the guns away — that’s as fitting a rallying cry as any for the Never Trump conservatives, whose pompous mutterings about the “conservative movement” concealed a statist elitism that only pretends to oppose the left’s Leviathans but in the end always serves them. Does anyone still wonder why they preferred Hillary to Trump?

The media doesn't understand guns -- and doesn't want to

Steven L. Miller, Fox News

Law-abiding, gun-owning Americans will not be lectured to about a national tragedy they had nothing to do with, and they certainly won’t be lectured by elitists in media who refuse to understand even a basic grasp or terminology about a sacred constitutional right. And until they do, we will refuse to have that “conversation” the left and the media keep telling themselves needs to happen.

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.

Dems Sifting The Air To Tie Vegas Shooting To Trump

When Democrats and the establishment media blame “gun nuts” and “white men w/ guns” for the acts of psychopaths, we conservatives should not take the bait and be bullied into buying the Left’s “blame the gun” narrative.

First They Will Take Your Dogs, Then They Will Take Your Guns

Messing with an American's dogs and guns is a fast way to start a revolution, but that's just what may be in the offing if a ruling by a U.S. District Judge in Michigan becomes precedent.

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.

Losing Their Gun Rights With Barely a Whimper

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

Little by little, legislators are forcing owners to register any firearms-related purchases with the state (California). The goal is to have all purchases of guns and ammo conveniently available in a state-accessible database. Then, when legislators or voters ban possession of new classes of guns or magazines retroactively, there will be an easy way to collect them from unsuspecting owners.

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.

EU Gun Grabbers Stymie Czech Plan To Defeat Muslim Terrorists

As of now the Czech Republic has some of the most lenient gun policies in Europe. Unfortunately for the people of the Czech Republic, the European Union has passed a new law that requires all potential gun buyers to go through a psychological check before they can buy a weapon and bans many common guns.

Indiana Supreme Court: 2nd Amendment Rights Protected by 4th Amendment

AWR Hawkins, Breitbart

In a May 9 ruling regarding a case where an individual was “detained and questioned,” then arrested for possessing a gun, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled that Fourth Amendment protections cover individuals who are exercising Second Amendment rights as well.

Another Reason To Impeach Some Federal Judges

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinions in Heller and McDonald, many of the most liberal lower federal courts have flaunted Heller and the clear language of the Constitution and have been making up their own anti-constitutional rules restricting the Second Amendment.

At the world's largest gun show, thankfulness for Trump

Salena Zito, Washington Examiner

No question, then, that the Supreme Court played a significant role in this election. Equally clear is that a sizable majority of court-voters were Second Amendment supporters. For many Republicans, holding the majority on the Court outweighs the value of holding the majority in both chambers of Congress, or perhaps even the presidency.

Urban Leftists Can’t Stop Violating the Constitution

David French, National Review

It’s time to impose real costs for violations of our most fundamental constitutional rights. The most important task of government at any level in the United States is to protect the liberty of its citizens. A government or public entity that repeatedly violates the rights secured in the Bill of Rights simply doesn’t deserve taxpayer support, and it’s past time to link federal funding to the protection of individual liberty.

We Need More Legislators Like Florida State Representative Bob Rommel

I was blown away when, in less than 24 hours, I received a reply to my email to Rep. Bob Rommel about using constitutional state sovereignty to protect the Second Amendment saying "I, too, am totally alarmed by the federal government’s troublesome overreach into our lives, and most especially by attempts to curtail our God-given right to protect ourselves and our families."

Obama’s Midnight Sneak Attack on the Second Amendment

Although Obama likes to empty out Guantanamo Bay of dangerous terrorists and commute the sentences of criminals guilty of breaking federal firearms laws, he doesn't like law-abiding American citizens to possess firearms.

If Hillary Clinton Wins Your Second Amendment Rights Are Gone

Please join us and Gun Owners of America in advocating for pro-gun candidates and doing everything else you can do to get your pro-gun friends to the polls to vote next Tuesday, November 8. There’s much to do, with only a little time remaining to protect your God-given right to self-defense. 

FedUp PAC Launches Unprecedented Catholic Voter Outreach

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
This election is winnable.  It is close enough to be turned around overnight.  The key to shifting the Catholic vote in Trump’s favor is to reach individual Catholics, and Catholic women with specific information and facts the media has not reported.  And through FedUp PAC there is a way to do that.

Trump Voters: Send Them A Message Nationalize The Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Despite the abysmal failure of the GOP’s national leadership to fight the campaign on national issues, the election has been at least partly nationalized on a broader theme – a simple rejection of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s failed policies and their stated goal of fundamentally changing America.
