Freedom Wins! Pro-Second Amendment Judge Will Join U.S. Supreme Court
On Friday, the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Neil M. Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Gorsuch’s nomination was heavily backed by the NRA, both because of the pro-Second Amendment views expressed in his judicial writings and his originalist approach to jurisprudence. Justice Antonin Scalia exemplified originalism in his landmark Heller opinion in 2008 that recognized the Second Amendment protects an individual right grounded in the principle of self-defense.

West Virginia Congressman Introduces Important Pro-Gun Legislation
On Thursday, Rep. Evan Jenkins (R-WV) introduced the “Protecting the Second Amendment Act,” H.R. 1976. This legislation would amend the Gun Control Act (GCA) to permanently prohibit executive actions like the Southwestern Border states’ rifle sales reporting initiative launched under the Obama administration. The bill states that no federal firearm licensee (FFL) could be subject to any generalized or ongoing reporting requirement based on the FFL’s geographic location or on sales of multiple long guns.

Canadian Gun Controllers Adopt Misleading Tactic on Children and Firearms
The U.S. and Canada share much, not the least of which are a common colonial heritage and a robust appreciation for the outdoors. Unfortunately, it appears Canadian public health researchers and gun control advocates share a regrettable distinction with their U.S. counterparts; a willingness to use misleading statistics on childhood firearms-related injuries to advance an anti-gun agenda.

Why The Media Is Failing
Why The Media Is Failing
Wayne LaPierre explains why the news media has never been less trusted, less credible or less respected. If the fate of freedom had rested in their hands, our nation would have fallen long ago. Instead, Americans placed their faith with the most trusted defender of individual freedom in American history. The National Rifle Association of America is Freedom's Safest Place.
