The NRA is Doomed. Unless . . .

“Demographer William Frey, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program [not shown], recently analyzed the changes in the youth population across the 50 states from 2000 to 2014,” reports [charts at the link]. “Frey’s analysis produced the striking finding that the total number of whites younger than 20 declined in 46 of the 50 states over those years. While many Americans may be aware that whites are shrinking as a share of the youth population, the declining absolute number of whites in so many states points toward more profound changes in the nation’s make-up than most may be anticipating.” I think we can put the NRA into the category named . . .

NRA: Why Three-Day NICS Deadline Protects Gun Rights

Two months after the Charleston church shooting, the National Rifle Association has finally got ’round to telling the general public why a three-day deadline for a NICS background check protects Americans’ gun rights. But not before anti-firearms freedom politicians scrambled to introduce legislation to fix the “loophole” that allowed the spree killer to buy a GLOCK 41 from a local gun store. Here’s the NRA’s take . . .

Question of the Day: Can the NRA Do Anything to Appeal to Democrats?


A new Pew poll finds that support for the NRA has rapidly consolidated along party lines in recent years,”’s latest email blast claims, “tilting each side of the gun safety debate to a more extreme point of view. Just 13 percent of Republicans now think the NRA has too much influence, down significantly from 2000, when one in three Republicans thought the NRA held too much sway. By contrast, 68 percent of Democrats believe the NRA has too much influence, up from 57 percent 15 years ago.” I certainly don’t recall seeing any Democratic speakers at the last NRA convention. On one hand . . .

Random Thoughts On Campus Carry for Women and Alcoholism

My second wife was a beautiful woman. When we walked through a restaurant, you could hear men groan as their wives or girlfriends kicked them under the table. Over the years, alcoholism claimed her looks. If you hadn’t seen my second ex in five years, you wouldn’t recognize her. Her descent into the physical, emotional and financial abyss taught me an important lesson: you can’t stop someone from making bad choices. They either learn from the consequences of those choices or they don’t. This thought occurred to me after dropping ex 2 at rehab 7 and reading an anti-Florida campus carry post . . .

Cornyn’s NRA-Backed Mental Health Bill Needs to Address Key Questions

Sen. Cornyn - Official Portrait

“A+”-rated* Sen. John Cornyn has the National Rifle Association’s backing for a “modest” bill “that would reward states for sending more information about residents with serious mental problems to the federal background check system for firearms purchasers,” Fox News is reporting. The legislation is generating no small amount of debate among gun rights advocates, with some supporting it as a pragmatic move designed to thwart more draconian proposals, and others characterizing it as a preemptive surrender (and worse).

NRA Debunks Bogus Universal Background Check Justification


Right up there with the laughable and oft-refuted claim that “90% of Americans support universal background checks” is the equally laughable “statistic” that 40% of gun sales happen without a NICS check. It’s trotted out by the media and members of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex (redundant, I know) in an attempt to justify UBCs in order to close the dreaded “gun show loophole.” The NRAILA’s out with a useful takedown of that bogus 40% figure that our intellectually dishonest lazy friends love to regurgitate. Make the jump for still more truth about guns . . .

NRA Statement on Military Carry

Chris Cox, Executive Director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, released the following statement regarding the ban on troops carrying firearms on military installations:

“It’s outrageous that members of our Armed Services have lost their lives because the government has forced them to be disarmed in the workplace.”

“President Obama should fully repeal Defense Department Directive 5210.56 immediately, and Congress should pursue a legislative fix to ensure that our service men and women are allowed to defend themselves on U.S. soil.”


Question of the Day: Is The NRA Crying Wolf?


Last week the NRA aimed its sights (metaphorically speaking, of course) at Australia’s gun laws. More specifically, the post-Port Arthur massacre legislation that included a national gun buyback confiscation which effectively disarmed most of Oz’s law-abiding firearm owners. The focus was put on Australia’s gun laws by our esteemed President who held them up as an example to be emulated here during an interview after the Charleston church shooting . . .

Everytown for Gun Safety: Dylann Roof FBI NICS Failure is NRA’s Fault


It’s the same thing every time. A five-time deported illegal alien felon murders a woman in San Francisco – using a federal agent’s gun, no less – and Nancy Pelosi figures that’s as good an excuse as any to push for more gun control laws. In fact, the way she sees it, Congress has a “moral responsibility” to act. And she isn’t talking about “doing something” about accommodating sanctuary cities or irresponsible feds who can’t manage to hold onto their pistols. Then the FBI admits that Dylann Roof got his gun because of a bureaucratic screw-up by the basement-dwelling NICS trolls and Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety blames…you got it…the NRA. It’s all their fault. Here’s their latest email blast . . .

Gun Control Advocates Pissing in the Wind?

Tipping point? (courtesy

Never take your gun rights for granted. Always repel politicians’ aspirations to degrade and destroy your right to keep and bear arms. Remember that millions of Americans live in states that restrict the type of guns they can buy, force them to register their guns and ban them from carrying guns. At the same time, take satisfaction in the fact that the enemies of firearms freedom are claiming victory in the face of tremendous losses, putting their delusionary aspirations in high relief. Enabled, of course, by the anti-gun mainstream media. Here’s a perfect example from under the unintentionally ironic headline A Tipping Point on Guns . . .
