  • Former NRA President: Marco Rubio Wasn’t ‘a Friend to Gun Owners’ in FL

    Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% is taking a hard position against President Obama’s current gun control push, but various reports on Rubio’s time in the Florida house of representatives and U.S. Senate show a past marked by a fluctuating relationship between Rubio and gun rights. In one such report, published in 2010, former NRA president Marion Hammer said Rubio “has not been a friend to gun owners.” Hammer was reflecting on the difficultly that attended the passage of a bill guaranteeing employees the ability to keep guns in their cars at work for self-defense. According to Politico,...

    Do you see the puppet strings? The plot to disarm Americans and suspend the 2nd Amendment is working with furious pace. But it is anything but head on. The 2nd Amendment makes gun ownership an inalienable right and guarantees armed and formidable populace. The NRA and other lobbies have gun rights firmly entrenched in the Republican party. So the other side works the back door. Infiltration, sabotage and other dirty tricks. Is that what is happening? By all appearances, Soros, the elite wolf in sheep's clothing has been investing in firearms companies not to profit from them, but to destroy...

    American Thinker ^ | January 15, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Liberals like to talk about women’s rights but among those rights is, or should be, the second right enshrined in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights -- the right to keep and bear arms to protect one’s self. A woman’s body is her own, liberals tell us, and she has the right to choose to have an abortion. But the same liberals would deny women like Kimberly Corban the right to defend her body, and her children, with a firearm against the predators who lurk among us.
  • Pennsylvania Mayor Pulls Police From NRA Gun Show (demanded a 60% fee increase)

    The mayor of Harrisburg, Penn., ordered his police department on Friday not to provide security for an upcoming NRA-sponsored gun show after the association refused to meet a demand to pay a 60-percent increase in fees for the service. Harrisburg police have provided security for the annual Great American Outdoors Show, scheduled this year for February 6-14, in the past. Mayor Eric Papenfuse said that the decision not to offer the department’s services this year was motivated in part by the NRA’s opposition to the city’s gun control policies. “We have an epidemic of gun violence,” Papenfuse told WHTM. “It’s...

To hear Obama speak, you'd think the NRA is simply using boatloads of money and propaganda to thwart the impassioned gun control desires of the American public. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

"And by the way, there's a reason why the NRA is not here," Obama told host Anderson Cooper. "They're just down the street. And since this is the main reason they exist, you'd think they'd be prepared to have a debate with...a president." Chris Cox, the director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, went on Fox News Thursday...

    FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - President Barack Obama tore into the National Rifle Association on Thursday as he sought support for his actions on gun control, accusing the powerful lobby group of peddling an "imaginary fiction" that he said has distorted the national debate about gun violence. In a prime-time, televised town hall meeting, Obama dismissed what he called a "conspiracy" alleging that the federal government - and Obama in particular - wants to seize all firearms as a precursor to imposing martial law. He blamed that notion on the NRA and like-minded groups that convince its members that "somebody's going...

The president also called the notion that he is trying to take people's guns away a "conspiracy." The president quickly emphasized that he has "respect" for people who want a gun for hunting and sportsmanship, but it "makes sense to keep...

    Washington (CNN) - The nation's largest gun rights organization declined Wednesday to send official representatives to a nationally televised town hall with President Barack Obama on gun violence -- just days after the president reignited a discussion over this controversial topic. "The National Rifle Association sees no reason to participate in a public relations spectacle orchestrated by the White House," NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told CNN, which is moderating the live town hall Thursday evening in Virginia. The NRA strengthened its comment after initially saying the White House had "organized" the event. The NRA, the most influential gun rights group...

Seven years in, it is depressingly expected of the Community-Organizer-in-Chief.In his weekly address, released Friday, Obama vowed to spend his final year in office seeking ways to impose gun control policies via executive fiat, and urged American citizens to stand up against groups like the NRA -- which, of course, is made up of...

President Obama said this weekend that he'll meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss his "options” toward curbing gun violence, after ordering his White House team several months ago to identify "new actions" that he can take. The president also said that he's taking action because Congress has failed to act. He is expected to use so-called executive orders to tighten federal...

Under the policy, Virginians with a history of stalking, drug dealing or inpatient mental-health treatment cannot obtain a permit in a state with comparatively lax laws and carry a handgun legally at home. Herring said severing the out-of-state agreements can prevent people who may be dangerous or irresponsible from carrying a concealed handgun. “While you are here, you are subject to the commonwealth’s gun laws,” Herring said in a news...

After all, he never admits his policies aren't working, and he is perpetually partisan. More careful observers, however, see something far more troubling: He simply refuses to inhabit the reality that Islamists...

Outrageously, his first objective is certain to run into a cement wall in a Congress controlled by a Republican majority that runs errands for the National Rifle Association. And the second strains credibility given his own halting campaign to destroy the terrorist proto-state and those motivated by its radical Islamist ideology. In the days since the attack in San Bernardino, many have...

    Nevada Democratic congressional candidate John Oceguera says he's renouncing his membership in the National Rifle Association in the wake of a mass shooting in Southern California. Oceguera said he sent a letter to NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre on Thursday, saying he no longer wants to be associated with the group because it opposes legislation that would make it harder for terrorists, criminals and people with mental illness to get guns.

    Our beloved elite media loves to fabricate a major freak-out over “rhetoric” whenever a Republican says something they don't approve of (like the truth). But when it comes to actual hate rhetoric and the kind of fear-mongering that could get someone hurt, no one is worse than the elite media. Case in point: Friday, on the front page of the New York Daily News, the NRA's Wayne LaPierre is attacked in big red letters as a "TERRORIST."

    WASHINGTON — One day after 14 people were slain in a mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid on Thursday blamed lawmakers for not acting on an "epidemic of gun violence" and described the National Rife Association as the Republican Party's "quasi-militant wing." "Republicans must decide if they are more scared of gun violence or the NRA," the Nevadan said. Delivering his comments on the Senate floor, Reid ticked off a list of some of the nation's deadliest mass shootings in recent years that included the young students killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown,...

    On the front page of the New York tabloid is a large photo of Syed Farook, one of the two dead suspects believed to have carried out the shooting rampage at a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center that killed 14 people and injured at least 21 others. The headline reads, "HE'S A TERRORIST." But the News, which frequently crusades on the gun-control issue, also had a fierce jab at the National Rifle Association. And then there's this sub-headline:

    In other words, yeah, ok, Syed Rizwan Farook was a terrorist. But hey, so also are a bunch of non-Muslim white guys, including the head of the NRA. Disgusting.
