AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Fresh off a huge victory over President Barack Obama on gun control, the message from the National Rifle Association is clear: The fight has just begun.
The powerful gun rights lobby gathers in Houston this weekend for its annual convention and organizers anticipate a rollicking, Texas-sized party — both to celebrate the victory in Washington and recharge for more political struggles as gun control advocates tally their own successes [...]

The US Senate faces a showdown this week over gun rights, but even supporters of a contentious compromise on background checks conceded Tuesday that they are still short of the necessary votes.
President Barack Obama expressed optimism about the proposed bill and said it would be “unimaginable” if Congress defied strong public support for the measure, especially after the Newtown school massacre in December.
The chamber’s top Democrat Harry Reid [...]
….public protests, art, blogs and the right to a fair trial
April 8, 2013
All those who value free speech, art, public protests, internet blogs and due process should be waging an all-out information war right now to defend the Second Amendment. Why? Because if the Second Amendment is lost due to unconstitutional legislative and executive actions pursued by the government, then there are no limits to what civil liberties and [...]
Federal Framework Being Set Up To Arrest Sheriffs
Colorado, and apparently Texas (next) are being targeted with an attempt to set up a federal authority framework that will enable Secret Service agents (not just those guarding the president), and others of the U.S. Secret Service including uniformed division officers, physical security technicians and specialists, and other ‘special officers’, to arrest and remove an elected sheriff for refusing to enforce the law [...]
Every now and then there’s something good on faux news:
“While Cypriots can own guns, it’s a bear to get them,” Gutfeld said. “There is no gun culture there, which then allows the government to wonder of its docile populace, ‘What are they going to do, shoot us?’ Well, in America — yes, we will shoot you.”
from Fox News:
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday approved a renewed assault-weapons ban, advancing the measure to the Senate floor where it will face intense resistance from Republicans and other gun-rights supporters.
The bill was approved by the committee on a party-line, 10-8 vote. Chief sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said she knows “the road is uphill” for the legislation, but sought to press her colleagues to consider the bill.
“Are we going [...]
From Liberty Blitzkrieg:
“I rise today to begin to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination for the CIA I will speak until I can no longer speak. I will speak as long as it takes, until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being [...]

More than 5,000 NY SAFE Act opponents are lobbying lawmakers and rallying at the Capitol in Albany against measures they say infringe on their constitutional right to bear arms.
The New York Rifle and Pistol Association (NYRPA), the rally organizer, says busloads of demonstrators from more than a dozen counties around the state are scheduled to arrive Thursday morning.
The NYRPA describes the “5th Annual NYSRPA Lobby Day [...]
From Eric Peters:
Something very good – though very dangerous to the congealing police state (but not to liberty-minded people) – has occurred:
Millions of Americans have decided they will not abide by any demand they register their firearms, much less surrender them. And are saying so – openly.
More than a few local sheriffs have also publicly stated they will not enforce any such demands.
For the first time in living memory, the [...]
The safest pizza you’ll ever eat
February 19, 2013
A Virginia pizza shop is doing its part to uphold the Second Amendment and private gun rights by offering discounts to patrons who present concealed carry permits or visit the eatery possessing visible firearms.
According to their website, the All Around Pizza and Deli shop in Virginia Beach is offering a 15 percent discount for customers who “show us you carry openly or [...]
HELENA – Montana moved a step closer Friday to declaring that local sheriffs are the supreme law of the land and trying to nullify any federal crackdown on assault rifles.
The measures were among a slate of gun rights bills that cleared the Legislature’s House Judiciary Committee and now head to the House floor.
Other measures that advanced would let college students bring guns on campus, allow high school students to leave [...]

An overflow crowd of gun-rights advocates clashed with Democratic lawmakers today during a raucous seven-hour hearing as an Assembly committee approved 20 bills that further restrict access to firearms and ammunition.
The Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee approved the laundry list of measures despite some outbursts from a throng dotted with NRA baseball caps, camouflage clothing and jackets featuring a coiled rattlesnake from the Revolutionary-era flag. At least [...]
A Summary of the U.S. Senate’s Draconian Gun Control Proposals
Georgia police acquired $200 million worth of military-grade vehicles and weapons through DoD
WHY IS GOVERNMENT STOCKPILING GUNS, AMMO?
Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we don’t know about?
And, if that’s why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department?
Here’s what presidential candidate Barack [...]
Sheriffs have risen up all over our great nation to stand up against the unconstitutional gun control measures being taken.
The following is a list of sheriffs and state sheriff’s associations from who have vowed to uphold and defend the Constitution against Obama’s unlawful gun control measures. I applaud these public servants for their courage and conviction.
I call on sheriffs all over this nation to add their voices to the [...]
More evidence surfaced today indicating that the Obama administration is breaking the law and defying official government policy by ordering the destruction of expended brass at military installations. The brass is often used by civilian gun owners to make their own ammunition.
Gun rights enthusiasts often make their own ammunition in a process known as “reloading,” the practice of taking the brass from once-fired used bullets to make homemade ammo.
National Gun [...]

While a 15-year-old New Mexico boy faces charges of murdering five family members with his father’s gun, state lawmakers are weighing two measures that show just how divided the state is on firearms.
One measure would require background checks for all gun sales, while another would allow concealed weapons to be carried into bars and restaurants. And lawmakers on both sides of the issue say they will not be [...]
Rocker-turned-gun rights provocateur Ted Nugent is willing to say just about anything to attack President Barack Obama and his administration for what he believes is an imminent effort by the government to snatch up guns. During a recent interview, Nugent again raised the bar, invoking a Revolutionary war milestone to suggest that he and his “buddies” were prepared to fight such an effort at all costs.
“I’m part of a very [...]
ALERT! THE FBI’S “SECRET LIST” WHICH IS BEING USED TO BAR AMERICANS FROM OWNING GUNS IS INSIDIOUS
The FBI’s database currently contains the names of more than 150,000 veterans. They served their country honorably. They did nothing wrong. But, because they sought counseling for a traumatic experience while risking their lives for America, they have had their constitutional rights summarily revoked, with no due process whatsoever.
You want to know something else? [...]
President Barack Obama’s deputies have quadrupled the number of signatures that petitioners on the administration’s “We the People” website must collect to get an official response from the White House, following a series of popular, provocative and disrespectful signature drives by his critics.
Some of the petitions sought approval for states to secede after Obama’s re-election, while others called on the White House to disavow executive orders that restrict gun rights, [...]
Gun Shooting Big News
Why is it big news when someone is killed by a gun now? Why don’t we flash headlines about the people killed by knives, baseball bats, hammers, otc meds, prescription drugs? How many people were killed by stress when NAFTA and ISO 9001,2,xxxxx shipped their jobs to foreign countries and left them penny-less? How many people have been killed by the GMO’s in their diets that other [...]
Kroeker said his bill, which would hit federal agents with up to five years in prison and a $50,000 fine for attempting to enforce such bans, is designed to be proactive in preserving gun rights in Wyoming.
“We want to get things ahead of the game,” Kroeker said, pointing to opponents of the Bill of Rights two centuries ago who argued that the amendments were not necessary because there was no [...]
The National Rifle Association emerged from a meeting Thursday with Vice President Biden and accused his gun violence task force of leading an “attack” on the Second Amendment — just hours after Biden gave a glimpse into the gun-control recommendations expected to hit the president’s desk in a matter of days.
The vice president said earlier that “an emerging set of recommendations” focuses on launching “universal” background checks, restricting high-capacity magazines [...]
Good news — it has become known that hidden deep within the massive 2800-page bill called Obamacare there is a Senate Amendment protecting the right to keep and bear arms.
It seems that in their haste to cram socialized medicine down the throats of the American people, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.
“By golly, Nancy Pelosi was right — they didn’t know what [...]
WASHINGTON - Vice President Biden pledged Wednesday that President Obama will bypass reluctant Republicans in Congress and take executive action to curb gun violence, prompting a full-blown fit from conservative gun rights backers.
Biden heads a White House task force set this month to release proposals in response to the Newtown shooting. He told reporters before a Wednesday meeting with gun violence victims and gun control groups that Obama will not let Republican resistance prevent [...]
By Dana Brown
I just read an article where some state representative wants to publish all names of lawfully registered gun owners in a state. First this made me mad, then I started thinking, which is a very dangerous thing indeed. I found that I had seen this before permeating across everything I am involved with. This epiphany, emanating from the backlash of “gun rights” to all the freedoms and liberties [...]
Governor John Hickenlooper, a former member of a national anti-gun group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) founded and funded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, was just recently joined by thirteen mayors in Colorado to coordinate with President Obama to help pass gun control measures here in Colorado and nationally.
Governor Hickenlooper has also gone on the offensive when it comes to gun control by making statements just this [...]

The Obama administration and its gun-grabbing allies in Congress are planning to exploit the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., in a renewed bid to take away guns and gun rights. But in the days following the massacre of 20 first graders and six adults, the Gallup polling firm found that, by overwhelming majorities, most citizens favor decidedly different solutions to prevent further senseless attacks on [...]
A majority of Americans support stricter gun-control measures, including a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips, according to a poll released today following the murder of 26 people, including 20 children, in Newtown, Connecticut.
The ABC News/Washington Post survey showed 54 percent of respondents backing new limits on gun rights, with 43 percent opposed. When asked about banning ammunition clips that contain more than 10 bullets, 59 percent supported the idea, while 38 percent opposed [...]
A major defense-spending bill hit an unexpected bump on its journey through the U.S. Senate over an amendment on veterans’ gun rights, which devolved into a heated floor debate and foreshadows a potential battle over Democrats’ vows to tweak the filibuster rules in the clubby, traditionally collegial body.
Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, wants veterans who have been deemed “mentally incompetent” to have their cases adjudicated by a judge — rather than the Department [...]
December 3, 2012
Should veterans deemed too mentally incompetent to handle their own financial affairs be prevented from buying a gun?
The issue, for a time last week, threatened to become the biggest sticking point in a $631 billion defense bill for reshaping a military that is disengaging from a decade of warfare.
[...] “I love our veterans, I vote for them all the time. They defend us,” [Sen. Charles] Schumer said. “If [...]
WASHINGTON For the second consecutive year, prospective gun buyers joined Black Friday shoppers in record numbers as firearms dealers swamped the FBI with required buyer background check requests.
The FBI fielded 154,873 calls, a roughly 20 percent increase from last year’s previous one-day record of 129,166, according to bureau records.
The requests came in such volume throughout the day that FBI call centers experienced two brief outages — one of 18 minutes [...]
