Tuesday, November 4 is Election Day and the NRA is encouraging all Alabamians to vote YES on Amendment 5, the state constitutional amendment declaring and protecting an individual right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife.  By enshrining this state constitutional right, Alabama would keep the existing fishing and hunting structure in place while protecting future generations of sportsmen from attacks initiated by well-funded anti-hunting extremists.

Message from NRA Chief Lobbyist Chris W. Cox

Our fundamental right to keep and bear arms has never been in greater jeopardy.

Halloween Horror: Desperate, Angry Activists Hope to Shame Pro-Gun Voters into Inaction

With Halloween upon us, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) decided to ratchet up the gore (and poor taste) in their latest series of anti-gun ads.  Mischaracterized by CSGV as public service announcements, the only service these grisly ads provide to the public is alerting the electorate to the gun control community’s increasingly angry, inflammatory, and judgmental tactics.

‘Lone Wolf’ terror attacks: We're sitting ducks and Americans with guns are last line of defense

The recent spate of “lone wolf” terrorist attacks both here and in Canada seem to have come out of nowhere. And it’s clear that they have left Americans and Canadians as sitting ducks.Simply by using the Internet, ISIS has encouraged “lone wolf” individuals. These “wolves” have initiated attacks on their own with no planning or coordination with others and without leaving a trail of clues about their intentions. Law enforcement authorities and our government are not well suited to defend against such individual terror strikes. As Israel has learned about such attacks, there are just too many targets to defend.So what can be done to protect public safety? When police and the military can’t be everywhere, the last line of defense is having more citizens carry guns.

Joni Ernst is right on guns
