Getting “Slices” Today for a Stronger Second Amendment Tomorrow

Opinion Right to Carry by State Map Updated for 2018 United States of America – -(AmmoLand.com)- We’ve discussed both the need for an honest evaluation of the present political situation of the Second Amendment as well as the need to use the right tactics and strategies for a given job. Now, we will delve a little into the tactical/strategic area some more, this time by looking at a tactic that was advocated a long time ago by an anti-Second Amendment zealot – and how it can be used to regai...

Criticizing NRA Executives is NOT “Attacking the NRA”

Opinion The NRA was over $30 million in the red in 2017, and had an almost $50 million deficit in its pension fund. These deficits aren't due to lack of revenue, but rather irresponsible spending. USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Bless her heart, Marion Hammer just can't help herself. She just had to take a shot at me for exposing some of the financial corruption and poor decisions in the NRA and take some jabs at my dead father in the process. Don McDougal also wants to incorrectly frame my criticism...

NRA Needs A Proven Leader, Now More Than Ever

Opinion by Marion Hammer Wayne LaPierre is one of the most humble guys I know. He routinely turns down profile pieces, and he always tells people that it’s the members who are the bedrock of the NRA.

Time for Changes at National Rifle Association

Opinion Time for Changes at National Rifle Association USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Bloomberg's propaganda mill The Trace, and Mother Jones magazine, have been working overtime together to investigate NRA's activities, digging up as much dirt as they can find, and doing their best to keep the media rumor mill abuzz with negative National Rifle Association news. Obviously both of these “news” outlets are extremely anti-rights and anti-NRA, and they are painting everything they can find in the wors...

Preparing the next generation of Second Amendment Defenders

The future of the Second Amendment may well rest on how well we prepare the next generation to defend it. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- President Ronald Reagan famously said that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” That is particularly true of our Second Amendment rights. The fact is, those who wish to enact an extreme anti-Second Amendment agenda have been working to reach the next generation of voters.So, how do we prepare the next generation of Second Amendment defe...

Character Matters: George H. W. Bush

George Herbert Walker Bush was the first President I remember.  I was eight years old when he was elected and I remember he beat that guy whose tank helmet was too big for his head. George Bush was beacon of civility in a cruel profession.  What I have learned about him since his exit from office is the exact opposite of what we see in politics today.  His character was above reproach and his character mattered to him.  Here are some of the highlights: He was the son of a wealthy Senator, yet ch...

In Plain Sight

Last night I finally had a chance to read the criminal complaint against Mariia Butina (the double i is actually the correct spelling). It’s quite a document. Alexander Torshin, who has become a player of some note in U.S. politics, is her co-conspirator and clearly runs her as an agent. There are also two Americans who knowingly worked with her – U.S. Person 1 (who appears to be GOP operative Paul Erickson) and U.S. Person 2. From the facts alleged in the complaint, including a substantial nu...

So Just Where Is President Trump In Our Efforts To Preserve The Second Amendment?

Trump spoke at the NRA convention in Dallas to a hero’s welcome.  David Codrea has other thoughts. No one is expecting the president to exceed his authority or the proper bounds of federalism, but the office does come with a bully pulpit and, depending on your point of view, the man is either famous or notorious for issuing public statements through Twitter. If we’re to believe the “assault on [our] Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end,” what kind of statements would it be reason...
