The Coming NFA Threat To The Second Amendment

Second Amendment Activist Protest Activism Take Action United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- A series of recent court rulings have held promise or overturing onerous infringements on our Second Amendment rights. If the rulings of Judge Roger Benitez are upheld, standard capacity magazine bans and semiauto bans could be a thing of the past. That’s a good thing. If you think, though, that anti-Second Amendment extremists will just throw up their hands and give up their assaults on our rights, you’d ...

EPIC Failure ~ Short Barreled Rifles Were NOT Intended to be Regulated by NFA

EPIC Failure ~ Short Barreled Rifles Were NOT Intended to be Regulated by NFA U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In 1934, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) administration had been in office for one year.

The LA Times is Still Denying the Second Amendment

Careful, LA Times, your bias is showing. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The Los Angeles Times editorial page is less a journalistic enterprise than it is a partisan grievance noticeboard.

In both, the editorial board denied the core rulings in the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinions in District of Columbia v. Heller a...

ATF Proposed Rule to Make Pistols Registered Short Barreled Rifles

"Structural and cultural shifts have convinced many on the left that their causes are broadly and increasingly popular, and that strong rights protections have become a political obstacle. "

"But it is rash, especially in a big and insubordinate country like this one, to imagine that appeals to reasonableness and popularity will always serve as a more reliable guide to justice than the language of the Constitution. Yes, the N.R.A. used the language of rights to defeat laws that many people say they support.... But this is how rights often work: they protect things that most people think don’t deserve protection at all."From "From Guns to Gay Marriage, How Did Rights Take Over Politi...

License Required: The Alarming New Mantra from Gun Prohibitionists

Should citizens be required to get a license before they are allowed to buy a gun? ANALYSIS: Gun control proponents have latched onto a new mantra in their effort to reduce the number of guns—and gun owners—on the U.S. landscape, reluctantly recognizing that so-called “universal background checks” are not the solution to violent crime involving firearms, nor have they prevented criminals from getting guns. The latter fact is underscored in a recent online GUNS magazine report covering inciden...

The Senate’s unchanging rules

At his recent press conference, President Biden said that he came to the Senate 120 years ago. I knew exactly what he meant because I got there three years after him when I joined the Senate Historical Office in 1976, and it was a different world.
