  3. Urge Your Representative and Senators to Support Concealed Carry Reciprocity Please contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative and urge them to cosponsor and support passage of S.446 -- the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017-- in the Senate, and H.R.38 -- the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017-- in the House. You can contact your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative by phone at (202) 224-3121 https://www.nraila.org/articles/20170721/the-need-for-national-reciprocity Petition: TAKE ACTION TODAY
  4. Hunting Under Attack in the U.S. Senate Time to Counter by Moving the “Hearing Protection Act” We want to solicit your assistance on two fronts. First, Gun Owners of America needs your help to stop anti-gun Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D) from scoring an anti-gun coup. Second, we want to remind you that one of the best ways you can support Gun Owners of America is by becoming a GOA Patriot member. GOA Patriots are monthly contributors who are serious about defending the Second Amendment. Not only will you help GOA stay on the front lines, you will get a great-looking GOA cap as a thank you! GOA Successfully Working to Block Possible Attacks on Hunters A week ago, the Senate HELP Committee -- seriously, that’s its real acronym: HELP! -- voted out legislation which would revamp regulation of over-the-counter hearing aids. The legislation is crafted by Senator Elizabeth Warren. In the pro-gun House, representatives recognized that similar legislation might have ramifications for hunting-related listening devices. Several news outlets covered GOA’s progress on this legislation, and noted how GOA is leading the fight against gun control. Says BearingArms.com: “Things are getting heated in the gun world, especially with gun control advocates doing everything in their power to defeat the Second Amendment. But there’s one group who has ramped up [the pressure]: Gun Owners of America (GOA).” And Guns.com reported that, “Gun Owners of America told House lawmakers last week to delete ‘anti-gun’ language added to a prescription drug bill winding its way through Congress.” The results have been encouraging. Under the auspices of pro-gun champion Richard Hudson (R-NC) and the Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), GOA worked with Representatives who agreed to language alleviating any potential impact on guns. But so far, this pro-gun language has not been agreed to in the Senate. Hence, the bigger question is this: If Congress is going to protect people’s hearing, how about deregulating suppressors? GOA Working to Deregulate Suppressors On January 9, Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) introduced legislation to allow gun owners to protect their hearing by removing suppressors from the requirements of the National Firearms Act. If Warren is allowed to move her legislation forward -- on behalf of her wealthy constituent, Bose electronics -- legislation to protect the hearing of hunters ought to be allowed to proceed in tandem. As it now stands, firearms suppressors, which are little more than elaborate metal tubes, are treated like machine guns under federal law. To obtain one, you have to pay a hefty tax, submit fingerprints, undergo an elaborate FBI background check, and (under illegal Obama directives) obtain the permission of sometimes-hostile local law enforcement. There are at least two ironies to this: The first is that it’s pretty easy to make a makeshift suppressor. The second is that, even in gun-hating countries like Norway, suppressors are actively encouraged as hearing-protection measures. Tragically, the anti-health aspects of the 1934 National Firearms Act were written on the basis of mythology that Al Capone could use “silencers” to mow down “G-Men.” This storybook fiction is foolish from a variety of standpoints -- not the least of which is the fact that “suppressors” are not “silent.” So gun owners -- and public health experts -- are now asking why public health should be sacrificed on the altar of some comic book scenario that defines a “machine gun” to include a metal tube. But, one way or another, it’s time for the Senate and the House to take a stand on this health issue. And the Senate, in particular, should not allow the anti-gun Warren to put “points on the board” without considering how the hearing of gun owners can be protected at the same time. So please contact Sen1 and Sen2. Urge them to cosponsor S. 59, and to support the “Hearing Protection Act” when it is considered by the Senate. https://cqrcengage.com/gunowners/app/write-a-letter?2&engagementId=356513&ep=AAAAC2Flc0NpcGhlcjAxQHpyHQJGSvtZdOIxjJsiq1qe0F0u3uPcefVs5Kq4ykzXiFqwuOq0BalXC23_Dn2WwbHpwpeuikXJdMMPPrNk0WeuYG-hGVlINqyYNxvPCbc&lp=0

  7. Will “Son of ObamaCare” Become a Trojan Horse for Gun Control? “Son of ObamaCare” Bill Must be Amended to Eliminate Anti-Gun Aspects For six years now, congressional Republicans have campaigned on the promise that they would repeal ObamaCare on the first day that the GOP controlled Congress and the White House. But “ObamaCare repeal” seems to have devolved into a civil war in which GOP conservatives Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have now accused the Republican leadership of proposing “ObamaCare Lite” or “ObamaCare 2.0.” We won’t get in the middle of whether House Speaker Paul Ryan’s “repeal and replace” bill is genuine conservative reform or RINO-backed socialism. But it is important to us that whatever bill passes be amended so that it does not become a dagger in the heart of the Second Amendment. And Ryan’s current draft, which is still unnumbered, threatens to be such an anti-gun measure. These are our concerns: FIRST: The Ryan bill must be amended to prohibit the ATF or any government agency from sending millions of names to NICS -- because they have PTSD, ADHD, Alzheimer's, “anxiety,” or because a guardian processes their payments. This is exactly what happened with Social Security Disability Insurance recipients under the Obama administration. And, because of the Veterans Disarmament Act of 2007, there is no reason why, under “Son of ObamaCare,” the ATF could not troll the federal health database, or the expanded Medicaid rolls, or the lists of recipients of new entitlement funds -- and send millions of names to the NICS gun ban list. Given that “Son of ObamaCare” mandates that Americans maintain “continuous” insurance -- or suffer a 30% government-mandated penalty -- it is doubly important that these lists not be used to take our guns away. SECOND: Under a 2009 ObamaCare manager’s amendment [42 U.S.C. 300gg-17©(4)] -- inserted as a result of GOA’s urging -- an insurance company under ObamaCare is prohibited from denying insurance to gun owners and is prohibited from charging higher rates for gun owners. Had they been allowed to do this, “gun insurance” could have quickly become so prohibitively expensive that the Second Amendment would have been “insured” out of existence. But ©(4) is only applicable to plans “issued pursuant to or in accordance with (ObamaCare).” Most of the insurance plans purchased under the “Son of ObamaCare” bill will not fall within that category. So now that “Son of ObamaCare” repeals many of the restrictions on insurance companies, it is critical that those companies continue to be prohibited from discriminating against gun owners -- and that prohibition needs to be unequivocal. Just as an insurance company cannot discriminate on the basis of race, it needs to be made clear that it cannot discriminate against Americans exercising their constitutionally-protected rights to keep and bear arms. THIRD: Under a 2009 ObamaCare manager’s amendment -- [42 U.S.C. 300gg-17©(1), (2), (3), and (5)] -- inserted as a result of GOA’s urging -- doctors cannot be required to ask their patients about gun ownership and enter that information into a federal health database. Obviously, such a requirement would amount to a de facto national gun registry. But the language prohibits the creation of federal gun registries. Under “Son of ObamaCare,” it is certainly theoretically possible for an administration to require queries concerning gun ownership as a condition, for example, of being eligible for tax credits. Anyone who thinks this is far-fetched should consider that one of Barack Obama’s 23 anti-gun executive actions was specifically aimed at trying to pressure doctors to ask about gun ownership and to enter this information into an ATF-accessible federal health database. It needs to be made clear that doctors cannot be forced -- or perhaps even allowed -- to demand gun information and create such a registry. The bottom line is that many conservatives have serious problems with “Son of ObamaCare” because it keeps virtually all of the essential elements of the original: the mandate (now a 30% lapsed-insurance penalty), the subsidies (now a “refundable” tax credit that sends out checks to people with no tax liability), and the entitlements (now a “grandfathered” Medicaid expansion). For our part, we will definitely oppose the bill unless it is amended to remove the anti-gun aspects. So please urge your U.S. Representative to support moves to remove the anti-gun aspects from the “Son of ObamaCare” bill, which is still unnumbered (as of this publication).

  9. Sign the petition: "Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on January 9, 2017, introduced the Hearing Protection Act, restoring your right to buy suppressors for your firearms": http://cqrcengage.com/gunowners/app/write-a-letter?2&engagementId=273153&ep=AAAAC2Flc0NpcGhlcjAx5spGWrn8kYzB4UtkW-xbDH9vcRSTAmeN-O9b4etLxyY4QGDUV8JUjmik_jGCEV2L7clePq6TEl-hq6jVoi6SzvwYejQAclSg6ik-s2t-H_g&lp=0 Dear Representative: I am writing to ask you to cosponsor Rep. Jeff Duncan's Hearing Protection Act, H.R. 367. A "silencer" or, more correctly, a "suppressor" is, at its core, nothing more than a variation of a metal tube. It reduces the sound level of a discharge by about 30 decibels, but does not eliminate the sound of the firearm. Perhaps for this reason, studies have found that "suppressors" are used in less than one-tenth of one percent of all criminal acts. It is, at best, an historical anachronism that "suppressors" are treated the same way as full-blown "machine guns" for purposes of federal law. Rep. Duncan's bill would treat suppressors like ordinary firearms for purposes of federal gun laws. Even countries with strict gun control, like Norway, France, and Britain, deregulate and encourage the use of suppressors as a public health measure. We urge you to place the public health above the strictures of some antiquated law -- and we urge you to bring U.S. gun law into the 21st Century. Please cosponsor H.R. 367, Rep. Duncan's Hearing Protection Act.
  10. 60 shot, 11 fatally, over Christmas weekend http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-chicago-christmas-shootings-violence-47-shot-holiday-weekend-20161226-story.html Some Christmas at the neo-commie's paradise for gun control...

  13. Three cities — Baltimore, Chicago and Washington — accounted for more than half of the total increase in homicides in the country’s 25 biggest cities last year, according to the analysis, released Wednesday by the Brennan Center for Justice. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/04/21/homicides-were-up-last-year-in-some-major-u-s-cities-just-three-cities-saw-most-of-the-increase/?utm_term=.1d5ceb29aa9d Know what they have in common? I know you do. Liberals in charge of the mayhem, but reaching for our guns to confiscate. Homicides were up last year in some major U.S. cities.

  14. Does K-Y count? OK, just kidding. 200 rounds of Federal American Eagle .223 Tipped Varmint and night at the County Range. Case of beer on the way home.
  15. Homicides are spiking again in some big US cities. Chicago has seen nearly half the increase. As a number of major American cities are reporting more homicides this year than last year, the overall number of killings in the country's biggest cities has increased in 2016 - with just one city accounting for nearly half of the total spike ... https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/09/19/homicides-are-spiking-again-in-some-big-u-s-cities-chicago-has-seen-nearly-half-this-increase/?utm_term=.2f26fd213c62 And Left wants to disarm you, responsible gun owners...
