Dana Loesch: “Obama: Commander in Deceit” – Video Clip

On January 5, 2016, the president unveiled his executive order plans to force gun control measures down America’s throat. Dana Loesch strikes back at the president’s extreme overreach by shedding light on his dishonest history of enforcing existing gun control legislation.

The Terrorism Watch List and Guns

President Obama and other opponents of gun rights have seized upon the San Bernardino terrorist attack as a basis to justify more misguided gun control laws.  In particular, it is being argued that those on the Terrorism Watch List should be denied the ability to purchase a gun.  Such a proposal is ineffective as a means of trying to prevent terrorism, and is grossly unconstitutional and un-American.

The Charleston Church Mass Shooting

Your Action Urgently Needed to Prevent BATFE from Banning Common Rifle Ammunition!

From the NRA: President Obama insisted that if Congress would not enact his gun control agenda, he would do so on his own, through executive action. Whatever else can be said of the president’s track record, he is doing his utmost to keep that promise. Having failed to enact a federal ban on the AR-15, America’s most popular rifle, he’s now using the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to do the next best thing. BATFE is now … Continued

What Makes a Gun an “Assault Rifle” Video Clip

My Daughter Deserves Safety Just as Much as President Obama’s Daughters

President Obama is a long-standing opponent of gun rights.  He has opposed concealed carry, going so far as to voice support for a Federal law banning concealed carry in every state.  One would be hard-pressed to find an anti-gun law that Obama hasn’t supported. At the same time, President Obama enjoys the armed security provided by the secret service.   His neighbors in Chicago are unable to park their cars near their own homes, and have to pass through security checkpoints, … Continued

Gun Rights for Convicted Felons? – Part 2

ACLU of South Dakota Stands Up for Gun Rights

I’ve previously mentioned how the National ACLU is, much to my dismay, anti-gun.  However, some state chapters of the ACLU have been known to stand up for gun rights.  Recently, the ACLU of South Dakota has filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn a South Dakota law that unfairly (and unconstitutionally) restricts concealed carry permits:
