Hillary Clinton Slams AK Open Carry (a.k.a., “Chipotle Ninjas”)

In the video above, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton tells a bunch of financially forthcoming anti-firearms freedom folks that the Supreme Court is “wrong on the Second Amendment.” Mrs. Clinton is saying — force record — that the McDonald decision should be overturned. That landmark ruling “incorporated” Second Amendment protection for the right to keep arms for lawful purposes. And that means that . . .

NRA Dumps Dems

(courtesy thetrace.org)

“For most of the last three decades, the NRA supported both Republicans and Democrats making bids for seats in federal elections, provided that the candidate paid proper fealty to its positions on gun rights,” our good friends at Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitprop arm report. “That era is over. An analysis of the independent election expenditures by the New York Daily News and The Trace reveals that over the three most recent federal election cycles, the NRA’s spending on behalf of Democrats has dwindled to virtually nothing — even as overall election-related spending by the gun group soared to more than $32 million in 2014.” The move reflects . . .

H&K to Finally Import a Civilian Version of the MP5K (SP5K)

unnamed

Heckler & Koch haven’t always been the most responsive when it comes to servicing the demands of the American civilian firearms market. Just like Colt and FN, the folks at H&K had been relying primarily on military contracts for their cash flow and largely ignoring the civilian market. Also just like Colt this strategy has nearly run them into the ground financially. New at NRA this year H&K is releasing a civilian version of their MP5K submachine gun, finally starting to fill a demand that has existed since time immemorial . . .

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) issued the following statement on President Obama’s latest gun control push:

President Obama’s obsession with gun control knows no boundaries,” said Jennifer Baker, director of NRA-ILA Public Affairs. “At a time when we are actively fighting terrorists at home and abroad, this administration would rather focus the military’s efforts on the president’s gun control agenda . . .

NRA-ILA Press release [via Ammoland.com]

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court caught both friends and foes of the Second Amendment off guard with a summary opinion in the case of Caetano v. Massachusetts, ordering the state’s highest court to reconsider its decision that stun guns are not protected under the Second Amendment. While a clear rebuke to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court for its superficial treatment of the case, it is not, as at least one gun control advocate opined, a “signal” by the Supreme Court’s liberal justices “that they are not eager to overturn Heller” . . .

The NRA-ILA writes:

Does it ever seem like the entertainment industry needlessly interjects biased and politically-charged content into otherwise entertaining television programs or films? If so, rest assured you’re not unreasonably suspicious. Aside from the biases already attendant to the industry, the truth is that Hollywood is engaged in a concerted effort to propagandize unsuspecting Americans on certain political issues; and one of their chief causes is gun control . . .

Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords Building Anti-Gun Empire, ARS Takes Over Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

Michael Bloomberg and his billions get most of the attention in the anti-gun universe, but don’t go to sleep on Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly. The peripatetic duo just announced that they’re merging their civilian disarmament advocacy shop, Americans for Responsible Solutions, with the San Francisco-based Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. Sometimes mergers like this are done in desperation, the last ditch efforts of two failing organizations to keep their heads above water. But as usatoday.com’s report lays out, this one looks like the firm of Kelly & Giffords saw an opportunity to add some legal muscle to their anti-2A portfolio by taking over a smaller competitor . . .

(This post originally appeared at NRA-ILA and is reprinted here with permission)

The anti-gun press couldn’t contain their excitement. A new study published in the UK’s prestigious The Lancet medical journal purported to show that certain gun control measures could lead to incredible reductions in the firearm mortality rate. CNN blared, “Study: 3 federal laws could reduce gun deaths by more than 90%,” the L.A. Times touted, “Aiming to drive down gun deaths? Put these three laws on the books, researchers say,” and the Christian Science Monitor proclaimed, “Federal gun control laws could reduce deaths up to 90 percent, study says.” What these outlets weren’t anticipating . . .

The NRA Plays the Hurricane Katrina Confiscation Card

CBS’ Sunday Morning wanted Wayne LaPierre’s scalp interview for their program dedicated to “America and guns.” Instead, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization sent in Sandy Froman. The NRA board member and past president did a reasonable job defending Americans’ gun rights, but it was an uphill battle. Clearly, CBS sees the NRA as obstructionists. From’s best moment came when she . . .
