Congressional Legislation 101 – The Magic Numbers And The Floors

Congressional Legislation 101 – The Magic Numbers And The Floors, iStock-1154438278 United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Getting legislation through Congress is a lot harder than it sounds. In the 116th Congress, a total of 14,000 bills were introduced. About one percent became laws. But even after they get past the committee, these bills still have to survive the floor votes. For the sake of discussion, let’s discuss a bill that originates in the House of Representatives. In the House of Represe...

Congressional Legislation 101 – Committees, Subcommittees, and Chairmen

Congress Freshman – NSSF United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- As the 117th Congress kicks off, there will be a lot of legislation introduced. In fact, we noted over 14,000 bills were introduced in the 116th Congress. This leads to one big question: How does Congress deal with so much legislation? Hard for every member of Congress to read every bill, then cast a vote… in fact, impossible. So, while that might seem like good news, it really is more of a mixed blessing. Why? Because loyal Ammoland r...

Peach State Poses A Binary Choice

Georgia State Flag Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Let’s face it, we’d love to have 100 Senators like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or Josh Hawley. Sadly, we don't. But there is no time to complain because there are two very high-priority tasks for Second Amendment supporters, which involve binary choices. There is no third outcome: Rejecting one means accepting the other. Come January 6, the winner of the runoff for the regularly-scheduled Senate election will be either David Perdue or Jon Ossoff. One tal...

The Future Of The Second Amendment All Comes Down To Georgia

The Future Of The Second Amendment All Comes Down To Georgia Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Second Amendment will be around in some form or another in the future. But what form will it exist in? Will it be a right that we are able to exercise in a manner close to what the Founders intended? Will it be something that is there, but regulated to be, for all intents and purposes, non-existent? What happens in the Georgia runoffs could decide that future. You’re probably sick of hearing calls to r...

Second Amendment supporters should be no different – and their first resolution is really a no-brainer: Re-elect David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler to the United States Senate.

Sitting Out Helps Those Who Would Steal Your Rights

Right now, though, the only people who will gain from such an action are those who would punish you for crimes and acts of madness you didn’t commit by stealing your rights. Right now, our best shot to keep our rights safe is to vote to re-elect Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loef...

Capture – Charles Schumer, YT, C-SPAN 3-20 The Senate/Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- There are many reasons to vote to re-elect Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Their solid pro-Second Amendment records are one good reason. Another is to protect the Supreme Court from being packed with anti-Second Amendment extremists.

Do You Want Nine Justices or Fifteen Hearing Second Amendment Cases?

U.S. Supreme Court Image NRA-ILA Georgia/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Georgia Senate runoff elections that involve Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue come down to one very simple question: Do you want nine justices to hear Second Amendment cases? This is perhaps the fundamental question to ask any Second Amendment supporter who is sitting on the sidelines.

In addition to what might or might not be passed into law, there are a number of other things on the ballot in these races.

Once Again, SCOTUS Kicks 2A Can Down the Road…But Why?
