This should surprise precisely no one . . . Audit shows NRA spending surged $100 million amidst pro-Trump push in 2016
The National Rifle Association’s overall spending surged by more than $100 million in 2016, surpassing any previous annual NRA spending totals on record, according to an audit obtained by the Center for Responsive Politics.
The explosion in spending came as the NRA poured unprecedented amounts of money into efforts to deliver Donald Trump the White House and help Republicans hold both houses of Congress.
The audit filed with the state of North Carolina shows that the NRA’s total expenditures exploded to more than $419 million, up from $312 million the prior year.
NEW FLASH: Chicago homicides and shootings down in one neighborhood . . . Chicago’s top cop touts reduced violence in Englewood neighborhood
Johnson credited the department’s use of “nerve centers” in Englewood and five other police districts for helping reduce violence.
The nerve centers combine crime analysts with predictive crime software and use gun detection technology known as “ShotSpotter,” as well as high-definition surveillance cameras.
“These state-of-the-art tools allow officers and civilian analysts to work smarter and faster, monitor gang conflicts in real time and make changes to our strategy as the situation dictates,” he said.
Grayguns, Inc. today announced the release of their redesigned P-Series Perfection Action Kit for most SIG SAUER traditional double action/single action pistols. The Generation 2 kit (P-PAK Gen2) is available in both Self Defense and Competition versions.
Combined with a Grayguns custom curved or straight trigger – in alloy steel or aluminum – the kit is carefully engineered to provide a dead smooth double action pull, clean single action break, positive tactile reset and minimum overtravel. The kit includes the exact components Grayguns installs when completing in-house action work. Installation yields a reduction in both actual and perceived double action pull weight, while maintaining an appropriate single action weight for competition or self defense, based on the kit selected.
Just think how dangerous they’d be if they actually knew something about guns . . . ‘Literally Know Nothing’: Tucker Takes On Dem Over Banning MUZZLE LOADERS
Carlson asked New York City Council member Jumaane Williams, “So how many crimes do you think in the last, I don’t know, 100 years have been committed with muzzle loaders?”
Williams answered, “Well, once this new muzzle is created, we just don’t know. But, what you do a great job in, and it works for you, so I’m not saying you should stop. You do a great job of focusing on these single things…”
Tucker responded, “Oh you mean the facts? Yeah that is kind of my trade.”
The same old story in the Gunshine State legislature . . . Campus, open-carry gun bills could be in trouble for 2018 session
Proposals to allow the open carrying of guns and weapons on university and college campuses could be firing blanks again in the Republican-dominated Florida Legislature.
The 60-day regular session still won’t start until Jan. 9, but Senate Judiciary Chairman Greg Steube said late Tuesday that “at this time” he doesn’t plan to file two gun bills that have been among the more controversial issues in recent sessions.
One would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns on campuses. The other would allow license-holders to openly carry handguns.
Steube, a prominent gun-rights supporter, made the comments after his committee delayed action on two firearm-related measures.
Rule of thumb: any legislation that both parties agree on is a bad idea . . . Bipartisan deal on gun control unveiled
A bipartisan group of senators Thursday unveiled legislation to improve background-checks for gun sales, a narrow measure that attempts to address the recent spate of mass shootings.
The bill represents an incremental update to existing law but has the best chance of any effort to pass through Congress in recent years, with the weight of support from senior Senate Republicans behind it and no public opposition from the gun lobby.
The bill, crafted by Sens. John Cornyn, R.-Texas, and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would attempt to better enforce current law and strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check system to ensure all background check information is uploaded.
