So called environmental groups are trying to prohibit the use of traditional ammunition used for hunting and recreational shooting. They’re using the argument, that animals such as the California condor ingest lead from hunting ammunition, and that it’s causing their demise. What they don’t mention is that lead used in bullets is insoluble in the digestive tract of such birds. Read more from the NRA-ILA.
HiViz moving out of Colorado, because of unconstitutional gun laws passed by leftist legislators, and signed by the Governor is a done deal. Not only are gun prohibitionists clear, in their intent of removing the right to keep and bear arms from citizens, but they don’t care about the economic disaster they leave in their wake either.
Defense Distributed, has created and fired the first 3-D printed gun, in Texas. It took Cody Wilson of DD eight months to create the handgun called the Liberator. Of course the gun prohibitionists, like New York Congressman Steve Israel, are already working on legislation to ban such creations.
Today we’re faced with some dire realities. We have a presidential administration that would rather attack our right to keep and bear arms. According to John Bolton, the former U.N. Ambassador, Obama’s placing more emphasis on restricting the Second Amendment than keeping the nation safe. The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty is dangerous and it’s important that gun owners not be deceived.
As pointed out by AWR Hawkins, the usual suspects trot out the specter of the National Rifle Association, spending funds to defeat anti-gun measures such as background checks that are supported by the mysterious “90 percent.” Yet, we don’t hear any blame directed at groups, that lobby to remove our Second Amendment and attack our Bill if Rights, as if such efforts are the moral equivalent. Though it seems The liberal Center for Public Integrity admits, that the NRA is compromised of the American people, who believe in their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Something the other side can’t seem to match. Even with all that wealthy top down effort.
As the Huffington Post put it, the NRA’s success “is rooted in multiple factors, among them the pure passion and single-mindedness of many gun owners” and the organization’s keen ability to tap into this passion.
Who are some of the groups lobbying to remove our rights? Not only did the Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, lobby to support Dianne Feinstein’s so called “assault weapon” ban, but other well known groups pitched in too. Groups like the American Medical Association, the American College of Emergency Physicians, American Federation of Teachers, and the Entertainment Software Association. Don’t doubt that such groups would spend more if they could.
Michael Bloomberg’s Independence USA PAC(a super PAC can spend unlimited funds), spent more than $11 million on six races in its attempt to win elections, for anti-gun candidates. As recent as February, the Independence PAC spent $2.8 million in Illinois, to get Robin Kelly elected. We’re not even talking the multi-millions spent on anti-gun advertising campaigns. Because abrogating our Constitution is just fine according to the gun ban left.
From the looks of it, Magpul is basically out of Colorado, but they’re staying quite on account of bad timing with recent events in Boston. From this article at Guns.com, Magpul will be having their new firearm accessories manufactured out of state, too. They haven’t disclosed where.
From now on, not a single magazine will be manufactured or assembled in Colorado. ”We have started making PMAGs outside CO for the first time ever. The sights are made outside CO. We are actively moving forward with moving other items out.”
If you want to see, what normal Second Amendment advocating citizens are up against, watch this video. On a proposed ordinance, to nullify the Constitution and confiscate legal magazines that hold more than ten rounds, in the city of Los Angeles.
Brandon Combs of the Calguns Foundation gets to respond in the piece. There’s even a police councilman, saying outright “that there’s no reason” for anyone to own normal capacity magazines. Of course everyone except government. He may as well come out and say, if you’re not police or a government employee, you’re just a peon not entitled to your rights.
The Democratic Party is recruiting pro gun candidates in pro gun states for the Senate, all while pushing failed gun control laws, that the nation doesn’t want. The very candidates who supposedly don’t listen to “90 percent” of the people. This tactic is not a surprise since it’s the only way to win.
