NRA Applauds Trump Administration for Restoring Access to Utah Public Lands

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today applauded President Trump and Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke’s decision to restore access to public lands in Utah.

The two national monuments were among 27 that President Trump ordered Interior Secretary Zinke to review earlier this year. 

House lines up vote on Right-to-Carry bill

Republicans lined up a vote next week in the House on making it easier for gun owners to legally carry concealed weapons across state lines.

NRA may see major legislative win with concealed carry bill

This week the House is expected to pass a bill, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, that would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed carry permit to carry a handgun in any state that allows concealed weapons.

Right-to-Carry reciprocity a no-brainer

Law-abiding gun owners know about fellow gun owners who crossed state lines and unwittingly became criminals for breaking a law they didn’t know existed. A North Carolina resident was arrested for having his firearm while driving to New Jersey to help with Hurricane Sandy. A single mom from Pennsylvania spent years fighting to stay out of prison after driving with her firearm into another state. A man from Tennessee was arrested in Delaware after he was stopped for speeding. The stories are countless.

Washington Post Writer Likens Bloomberg Gun Control Org to Productive Charities

It is a small mercy that the Washington Post relegates Petula Dvorak’s column to the paper’s Metro section below the fold, preventing at least some readers from happening upon her insipid thoughts. According to a short biography offered by the Post, Dvorak’s areas of journalistic expertise include “homeless shelters, gun control, high heels, high school choirs, the politics of parenting, jails, abortion clinics, mayors, modern families, strip clubs and gas prices, among other things.” Perhaps Dvorak has some minor knack for hard-hitting reporting on women’s footwear and gentlemen’s clubs, but as her latest commentary shows, her forays into gun control politics lack the most basic competence.  

Another Year, Another Record

The resilience of America's interest in our Second Amendment freedoms is always reassuring in light of a media and political machine that would have us all believe that gun owners are inherently evil. 

State Attorneys General Back National Reciprocity

H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, gained support from a coalition of America’s highest-ranking law enforcement officers.
