Wed, 10/10/2018 - 14:33
The National Rifle Association released a new ad opposing Tennessee Democrat Phil Bredesen and supporting Republican Marsha Blackburn this week in the gun-rights group's latest foray into the hotly contested Senate race. "The Supreme Court is divided," the ad begins. "Our right to self-defense hangs in the balance. If Phil Bredesen wins, Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein will destroy our right to self-defense." The ad then goes on to advocate that Tennesseans vote for Bredesen's opponent. "But there's something you can do about it," the ad says. "Marsha Blackburn will defend our rights. Always. On November 6, vote Marsha Blackburn for U.S. Senate."

There’s Nothing Grassroots About Bloomberg-backed Gun Control

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 12:39
By now you know the media narrative: young Americans are uniformly working together on “grassroots” anti-gun activism in an attempt to unseat pro-gun elected officials across the country at all levels of government.  The danger facing gun owners is very real. Without an historic effort from pro-gun voters, gun control will be on the agenda throughout the country come January. But the threat doesn’t come from a grassroots movement, it comes from a cadre of wealthy elites intent on eliminating your fundamental rights.

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 12:35
While Congressional elections will likely get the lion’s share of media coverage leading up to November 6, gun owners know that threats to our Right to Keep and Bear Arms do not only emanate from Washington, DC.

Does Hunting Need Constitutional Protections?

Wed, 10/10/2018 - 09:31
This November, North Carolina voters will decide whether to codify the right to hunt and fish in the state’s constitution. This type of amendment is not new, though it has rapidly gained steam in the last two decades. More than 20 states have cemented a constitutional right to hunt and fish -- most through the ballot box. The effort is backed by outdoor sporting groups and the National Rifle Association (NRA) and faces concerns from animal rights groups. If approved by voters, this change would limit the state's ability to regulate hunting and establish hunting as the "preferred" means of managing wildlife.
