Texas: Setting the Record Straight On “Red Flag” Legislation

By NRA-ILA Over the holiday weekend, a conservative “taxpayer watchdog” group sent out an email to its contact list which gave the impression that NRA-ILA does not oppose “red flag” legislation in Texas.

Los Angeles Ordinance Mandates Disclosure of NRA Ties by All City Contractors

“Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the National Rifle Association?” No, that’s not a reincarnation of the House Un-American Affairs Committee’s standard inquiry of those appearing before it.

NRA Releases Statement on the Trump Bump Stock Ban

The National Rifle Association has issued an official statement on the Trump bump stock ban. Now that the ATF has complied with President Trump’s virtual order to reclassify bump fire stocks as machine guns, the NRA claims that it was either “let ATF review its prior determinations” or risk even more restrictive action…from a GOP-controlled congress…that […]

NRA-ILA Praises White House School Safety Commission Recommendation for Red Flag Laws

Chris Cox, the executive director and chief lobbyist of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, has publicly praised the White House School Safety Commission and their recommendation for gun confiscation.
