2nd Amendment is pro woman

NRA Feed - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 19:00
My family was never big into weapons, even though we grew up on the farm. Tragically, I think much of it stemmed from a close relative who died in a hunting accident. Also, several favorite political figures of my family were cut down by assassin’s bullets in the 1960’s. With a background like that, who would want weapons?However, the military gave me a healthy exposure to weapons, along with being stationed in the Great State of Texas. A few years later, I moved to another Virginia and got married.

NRA Feed - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 07:40
With less than 48 hours left in the 2014 legislative session, rumors are circulating that several conference committee members are considering a possible compromise provision which still creates a discretionary FID licensing system for long guns in the Commonwealth.  The NRA opposes any form of discretion in issuing FID cards for long guns, and it is critical that you call and e-mail your state legislators and members of the conference committee in the final hours.

NRA Feed - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 19:00
America’s last holistic concealed-carry ban has been pushed into the dustbin of history. On Saturday afternoon, while nobody was looking, a senior judge finally made up his mind, yielding ten beautiful words that I never imagined I would see together: “Federal District Court Strikes Down Washington, D.C. Handgun Carry Ban.” And that, happily, was that.

Everytown Shoots Itself in the Foot

NRA Feed - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 12:00
Charles C. Cooke: I am reliably informed that the folks over at Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control outfit, Everytown, believe earnestly that the above commercial makes the case for stricter gun control. The intended message, presumably, is: “We need to keep guns out of the hands of violent men with restraining orders.” A laudable aim, in and of itself. Does this come across? Not really, no

NRA Feed - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 19:00
A psychiatric patient armed with a revolver and several rounds of ammunition entered Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby, Pa. for a scheduled appointment. The patient then proceeded to fire upon hospital staff, killing one woman and wounding Dr. Lee Silverman. Silverman responded to the rampage by retrieving a pistol and firing at the patient. Three of Silverman’s shot struck the patient which allowed for other hospital employees to detain the killer. Following the incident, Silverman has been hailed as a hero. Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan stated, “If Dr. Silverman did not have the firearm and did not utilize the firearm, he’s be dead today… and other people would be dead.”

Guns in America: Why I think it's time for California to stop fighting Peruta vs. San Diego

NRA Feed - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 19:00
On Thursday, July 24, 2014, Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. issued a Summary Judgment Order affirming that the 2nd Amendment confers a right to "bear arms" outside the home. The order was nothing short of devastating to the District of Columbia which has been resisting and delaying compliance with legal decisions on this issue for many years. The order was plain. The government and police of the District of Columbia were told to cease and desist from enforcing all laws regarding carrying weapons until such time that an acceptable and constitutionally compliant set of laws providing for the carrying of weapons outside the home for D.C. residents and non-residents are put into place. That's a hammer blow in magnitude rarely seen and it's a wake-up call to other jurisdictions resisting similar decisions on other parts of the country.

Court Declares District of Columbia’s Ban on Bearing Arms Unconstitutional

NRA Feed - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 10:00
The nation's capitol, long infamous for its strict gun control, is now one step closer to being forced to comply with the Second Amendment. On Saturday, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia issued a decision in Palmer v. District of Columbia, which challenged D.C.'s ban on carrying firearms in public for self-defense. The court's opinion prohibits D.C. officials from enforcing certain provisions of local law that effectively prevent the carrying of firearms in public for self-defense. Whether the District will seek further review of the court's decision remains to be seen. In the meantime, however, D.C. must now join all 50 states in the union in recognizing, at least to some degree, the fundamental right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. We will provide further updates as more information becomes available.
