The Fight for the U.S. Senate: A Call to Arms

The Fight for the U.S. Senate: A Call to Arms Georgia, USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- I apologize for the blatantly political post, but we as gun owners need to step once more into the breach and defend our rights and the firearms industry. The election is not over. In all likelihood, Trump has lost the White House and we have Joe Biden for President. As unpalatable as this may be for gun owners, we still have some control over our fate if the Republicans keep control of the Senate. Republicans curre...

Removing the Gun Control Agenda from EVERY Major American Political Party

Opinion Removing the Gun Control Agenda from EVERY Major American Political Party USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- For every pro-gun activist, the goal must be to remove Gun Control from the Agenda of all major American Political Parties. There are massive cries within the gun community to ostracize gun owners who have voted for Biden… or, more accurately, gun owners who haven’t overtly supported President Trump in the last election. The most offensive posts suggest that those gun owners are traitors...

NY State Bar Association: ‘More Gun Laws!’ Despite Contrary Evidence

By Larry Keane New York is an anti-gun dystopia. IMG iStock-884181314 U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- As the joke goes, the only profession with a lower approval rating than Congress is being a lawyer.

On Gardening: Frost Your Poinsettia for a Christmas Remembered

(TNS)—There is an excitement in the air about Christmas this year. Right now, it doesn’t seem to be about presents or shopping, though that will probably come. It seems to have a focus on tradition, on family, a return to what is important. The beauty of the season seems to have achieved a status that has been unprecedented for a while.
