Colorado: USFS Requesting Comments on Direction for Recreational Sport Shooting in Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests

The NRA issued an alert in May to advise our Colorado members that the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) had announced its intent to amend the management plan for the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests (ARNF) to address recreational shooting.  The USFS received over 300 comments regarding its announcement, including the letter sent by the NRA and 29 other national sportsmen’s organizations.

Second Amendment saves family from intruders

For those who continue to question why the Second Amendment holds such a high level of importance, a June 30 incident should have provided a more than adequate answer. The episode once again proved that criminals have no problem obtaining guns, and that the only sure defense is for law-abiding citizens to be armed, as well.

Hitler and Gun Control

One of the issues that liberals and gun control advocates are most loath to discuss is how heavily and effectively totalitarians and mass murderers have relied upon gun registration and other firearms controls to round up “enemies of the state.” Hitler, Stalin, Castro, and Mussolini all seized upon gun laws to punish, incarcerate, and even exterminate their opponents, while permitting their own evil cliques to expand and strengthen the state and party monopolies on gun ownership

Cuomo-GOP Senate deal on gun law faulted as doing little

The head of New York’s National Rifle Association affiliate said Monday that a gun control deal between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Republicans in the state Senate does little, and possibly nothing, to lift restrictions on ammunition sales.

The good news about extremist violence in the United States: It’s vanishingly rare

The only remedy here is for pundits and political groups on all sides of the political spectrum to speak out against government excesses and civil liberties abuses even of people and groups we find abhorrent. It also means speaking up when the threat posed by these groups is exaggerated or presented without context. Extremist violence is incredibly rare in the United States. That doesn’t mean it never happens, or that it isn’t tragic and awful when it does. But it’s okay to recognize the tragedy of a particular event and conclude that there was nothing to be done about it. Doing so doesn’t mean the lives that were lost any less important or meaningful, nor does it make the sheer horror of it all any more palatable. But when a monster commits an inexplicable crime, we do no one any good by insisting that this particular monster could only have been one of an army of them– despite all evidence to the contrary — then insisting that no one feel safe until we’ve destroyed them all.

Pennsylvania: Lawmakers take another crack at Sunday hunting

State legislators are taking aim at a new Sunday hunting bill intended to satisfy opposition from the state Farm Bureau, Christian Sabbath supporters, safety advocates, property line enforcers, skeptical hunters and others who have successfully denied Pennsylvania hunters the seven-day hunting privileges provided in every surrounding state.

Gun Control Australia targets lever-action shotgun

A Turkish-made shotgun soon to be imported by one of Australia's leading gun lobby figures has become the latest front in a 20-year battle between the lobby and gun control activists.

New York City: De Blasio criticizes meager SAFE Act delays

De Blasio noted, however, that rollback of SAFE Act provisions would be a setback for gun control.“That law was passed by the Legislature, signed by the governor. It was the right thing to do, and we just can’t go backwards, especially after Newtown, which was the inspiration for that law being passed, which I thought was going to lead to a lot more in terms of sensible gun regulations than it did around the country,” de Blasio said, referring to the December 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. “We just cannot go backwards on gun safety. That’s the bottom line.”
