With Congress reconvening it is very important to keep in contact with your legislators with regard to your Second Amendment rights. We kept our rights from deteriorating in 1999; we must keep up the pressure. The Juvenile Justice Bill is not dead. It is in a conference committee comprised of members of both the Senate […]

Many state legislatures reconvene in January. Our focus over the past several months has been riveted in Washington, D. C. While Congress fortunately remained in gridlock, we have achieved several important victories – and suffered some losses – in state legislatures. As former Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill was fond of saying, “All politics […]

The 106th Congress has adjourned for the winter break, and most of our legislators have returned to their home districts. This is the best time to show them that there is a pro-gun element of their constituency that is politically active and vocal. There are many ways to do this. Two of the easiest are […]

 With the school year beginning nationwide some serious attention must be paid to exactly how the school systems are dealing with the recent spate of school shootings. The gun grabbers and their media toadies would like to believe that the answer is strict gun control, beginning in the school. Programs are being proposed and in […]

The biggest battle of the year to keep our gun rights has begun in Washington, D. C. With generous and broad-based media support, the Clinton Administration has pushed the notion that some sort of gun control legislation must be passed. With just a little over a year left in office, President Clinton will do whatever […]

The broadcast media, especially television, has been saturated with biased reporting for the past few months. Often these are the products of national networks. A & E’s weeklong “Under the Gun” series, and more recently a piece from CBS’s Dan Rather regarding the 2nd Amendment not being an individual right are the most blatant examples […]

As the Nation’s Capitol buzzes with rumors of House and Senate conferees being appointed to consider finalization of a Juvenile Justice Bill, we must keep our views on the opinion radar screens of our Representatives and Senators. Legislative proposals to close the so-called “loopholes” at gun shows are nothing more than thinly veiled gun control […]

Due to the Columbine High School incident and the influx of anti-gun legislation introduced around the country, the gun issue has become a hot topic in the mass media. Talk radio, especially, has focused on the issue, and often in an arguably biased manner. There are steps that we, as gun owners, can take to […]

The horrible tragedy in Littleton, Colorado has forced gun control into the headlines. Anti-gun legislation is being considered on every level of government, from local to state to federal. We must let our elected officials know that we will not tolerate support of restrictive legislation that will only harm the law-abiding gun owner and not […]

This month we need to help Rep. Cliff Stearns of Florida get cosponsors for his bill, H.R. 492. If enacted into law, this would set up a federal reciprocity system for concealed carry permits, as well as allow qualified current and former law enforcement officials to carry concealed, regardless of state law. The bill currently […]
