Friends, the future of our Second Amendment rights comes down to one day— Election Day—Tuesday, November 4. Tuesday’s elections are the most important of our lifetime. Our fundamental right to keep and bear arms has never been in greater jeopardy. This election cycle, we face the best organized and most well-funded attack on our freedom since our forefathers put pen to paper to ensure our Second Amendment rights.
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.

In addition to casting your ballot on Tuesday, here are some additional steps you can take to help ensure the future preservation of our liberty:

There is a new argument against Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst. To wit, that she should be excluded from the United States Senate because she just might shoot the parliamentarian the first time a procedural ruling goes against her.In a recently unearthed video from a 2012 National Rifle Association meeting in Iowa, Ernst explained her devotion to her Smith & Wesson 9 millimeter in particular, and to her gun rights in general. “I believe,” she said, “in the right to defend myself and my family — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

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.

Brian Hiner was at home in Butler County, Ohio when his dog alerted him to an intruder. Hiner retrieved a gun, went to investigate, and apprehended the home invader. When police arrived, they detained the intruder in a cruiser. However, the criminal managed to escape the vehicle, ran into a cornfield, and eventually invaded another house. 15-year-old Justin Kugler was at home at the time, and responded to the intrusion by retrieving a gun. When Kugler encountered the home invader he told him, “get out of the house or I'm going to shoot you.” Police recaptured the intruder outside the Kugler residence.
