Kamala Harris & the News Media Don’t Know What They Don’t Know

Opinion Kamala Harris Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- By now gun owners have become accustomed to a certain measure of ignorance from anti-gun politicians and their lapdogs in the mainstream press on matters of firearms policy. It’s the flamboyant stridency of that ignorance that remains shocking. Last week, the presidential campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) announced that if elected president the candidate would ban the importation of AR-15-style “assault weapons.” Characterizing the...

Arizona Repeals Decades old Ban on Nunchakus (Nunchucks) Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- Arizona has finally passed a repeal of its decade long ban on the possession of nunchakus.

Ben Heller, Powerhouse Collector Of Abstract Art, Has Died At 93

Heller blurred the line between collector and dealer – and caused an international incident because of it. “Heller’s sale of Jackson Pollock’s Blue Poles to the National Gallery of Australia, then under construction in Canberra, the nation’s capital, was announced in September 1973. The news caused an uproar in the New York art world; in Australia it nearly brought down the Labor government of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, who had to sign off on the $2 million sale.” – The New York Times

Explained. If the New York attorney general Letitia James found sufficient cause and evidence that the NRA was violating the rules and regulations governing nonprofits, she could attempt to force the dissolution of the organization.

Defeating the Other Side’s Long Game

Chris W. Cox, Donald J Trump, Wayne LaPierre United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Let’s face it, far too often, anti-Second Amendment extremists beat Second Amendment supporters in long-term planning. All too often, Second Amendment supporters are caught up in the short-term – battling each other over the minutiae of this bill or that primary election. Or when a case like Heller or McDonald is won, too many let up a little. On the other hand, anti-Second Amendment extremists have embedded themsel...

Can The National Rifle Association Be Saved?

I doubt it, but let’s rehearse some recent events before diving too far into my assessment. Even most NRA members, it would appear, still do not get that the issue of bump stocks (and the ban dictated by the stroke of a pen by one man) isn’t about bump stocks. “You know what? I didn’t even know what a bump stock was,” said Patrick Callahan, 61, from Wyoming. “I have no problem with a bump stock being banned, to be honest with you. I think there’s always balances.” Sebastian is still arguing, se...

Netanyahu Appears To Win 5th Term, Raising Palestinian Fears Of Annexation

JERUSALEM (AP) — Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to be headed toward a historic fifth term as Israel’s prime minister on Wednesday, with close-to-complete unofficial election results giving his right-wing Likud and other nationalist and religious parties a solid majority in parliament. The outcome affirmed Israel’s continued tilt to the right and further dimmed hopes of a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Re-election will also give Netanyahu an important boost as he braces for...

Standing up to the incremental erosion of our rights

Stand up against incrementalism. That’s the message from United States District Judge Roger Benitez, who issued an 86-page opinion on March 29 striking down California’s ban on high-capacity magazines. “Constitutional rights would become meaningless if states could obliterate them by enacting incrementally more burdensome restrictions while arguing that a reviewing court must evaluate each restriction by itself when determining its constitutionality,” Benitez wrote in a footnote, quoting from th...
