While several states pick apart the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act, police and Congress are fighting back to make sure good guys are armed and ready.
Whenever there’s a mass shooting of any kind, anti-gunners are going to start using it to push for their pet gun control projects. Right now, a lot of people are using the shooting in Aurora, Illinois on Friday to justify things like universal background checks.
The appropriate amount of violence we should see in this nation directed toward children is zero.
Recently, there has been misinformation spread that gives the impression that NRA-ILA does not oppose so-called “universal” background checks and “red flag” legislation in Minnesota. In a time where the Second Amendment community needs to band together to fight against the influx of gun control measures being introduced, it is strange to see so-called “pro-gun” organizations that purport to support the Second Amendment attempting to create division by spreading these rumors. However, these rumors couldn’t be further from the truth. Your NRA-ILA stands adamantly opposed to any legislation that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms, or measures that would allow a court to require an individual to surrender firearms to law enforcement, based on statements made by a petitioner in an ex parte proceeding.
