Florida homeowner shoots, kills pair of armed intruders holding his mom hostage

A dramatic 911 call tells the tale of a Brevard County, Florida man who faced down a pair of intruders. The two goblins pointed a gun at the resident’s mother in her own bedroom.

Smith & Wesson Report Sure To Upset Anti-Second Amendment Shareholders

Urge Your Senators to Oppose William Barr for Attorney General

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote next week on the Attorney General nominee William Barr.

Unfortunately, Barr’s answers to Senators’ questions during a hearing earlier this month showed that he holds a very anti-gun bias.

And after the hearing, several Senators submitted written questions to him — looking for clarification on many issues (including guns).

Sadly, Barr either doubled down in his support for gun control or refused to answer important questions — such as whether he supports concealed carry reciprocity.

So it’s now doubly clear that Barr will be no friend to gun owners should he assume the office of Attorney General.

Here are just some of Barr’s answers in writing:

  • Barr supports Gun Confiscation Orders: “… it is critical that we get an effective system in place that keeps firearms out of the hands of mentally ill people…  A key part of any such system are laws that allow ‘Extreme Risk Protection Orders’ [aka Gun Confiscation Orders].” (Barr answer to Sen. Cornyn Question #1.)
  • Barr explains why he could still support the semi-auto and magazine bans that he supported in 1991: “I would look for … whether [the] burden [of a gun-control measure] has a sufficiently meaningful impact on crime to justify burdening a fundamental right…” (Barr answer to Sen. Kennedy Question #3.)
  • Barr could possibly support the elimination of the 3-day period for completing a NICS check — thereby allowing the FBI to block a purchase forever, without knowing if the individual was a prohibited person: “I also have not studied whether changes to the three-day waiting period are advisable.  If confirmed, I will review this issue along with other issues affecting public safety.” (Barr answer to Sen. Feinstein Question #43.)
  • Barr refuses to answer whether he believes concealed carry reciprocity legislation is constitutional: “I … am not currently in a position to opine…. The question of whether the Second Amendment, or any other provision of the Constitution, would require one state to recognize another’s concealed carry permit is one I have not considered.” (Barr answer to Sen. Feinstein Question #44.)
  • Barr punts on whether a federal ban on bump stocks (which would also affect semi-autos) would be legal: “I would be pleased to review any legislation on this issue.” (Barr answer to Sen. Feinstein Question #45.)
  • Barr supports the Lautenberg misdemeanor gun ban, which takes guns away from people who engaged in shouting matches in the home: “I look forward to working with you and the Committee on this important issue.” (Barr answer to Sen. Feinstein Question #46.)

So there you have it.  Barr is not backing down. He would be a disaster for the Second Amendment.

Again, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be voting next week on his nomination.

It is likely that most Democrats will oppose him. But many Republican Senators are wary of going against Trump on this nomination.

So the only hope of swaying them is to convince them that YOU — their constituent — pick up the phone and let them know that you are 100% opposed to this nomination.

 

DAILY ACTION: Tell Speaker Hortman and Majority Leader Winkler to apologize to Minnesota’s 2.5 million law-abiding gun owners

Last Thursday was Gun Owners Lobby Day at the Minnesota State Capitol.

Hundreds of you turned out to address your concerns with your lawmakers about the anti-gun DFL agenda in Saint Paul.

Speaker Melissa Hortman and Majority Leader Ryan Winkler weren’t interested in what any of you had to say about their gun control agenda.

Instead of welcoming hundreds of law-abiding gun owners from across the state, Speaker Hortman, Leader Winkler, and the rest of the House DFL caucus sent out a press release decrying our stance against their “common sense” and “reasonable” gun control measure.

Remember, it’s the Minnesota DFL that has proposed HF 8, a “criminal background check” bill, that contains many onerous gun control measures, such as one gun per month, universal gun registration, and other measures; and HF 9, a “red flag gun confiscation” bill, that would allow police to work with a judge in an ex-parte hearing at which the gun owner is not present in order to obtain a court order to seize firearms from an otherwise law-abiding gun owner.

Rather than take the opportunity to learn why so many Minnesotans oppose this radical gun control legislation, Speaker Hortman and Majority Leader Winkler chose instead to go on the attack against Minnesota’s more than 2.5 million law-abiding gun owners.

They both should apologize for their ridiculous attack!

TODAY’S DAILY ACTION

Today’s daily action is to tell Speaker Hortman and Rep. Winkler to apologize for attacking Minnesota Gun Owners.

Stop the Assault!

Stop the Assault!

A coalition of freedom-loving patriots have organized a campaign that gun owners across the country should take part in. 

The “Stop the Assault” campaign is a national effort to urge Second Amendment supporters to mail very personalized, hand-written notes to their local, state and federal officials on February 1st, urging them to stand firm on the right to bear arms.

You can take part in five easy steps:

1. Find your elected officials — click here and then enter your zip code in the right column)!

2. Download the “Stop the Assault” campaign letter and print copies for each official.

3. Fill out the spaces for your elected official’s name, your name, e-mail address, and any personal message that you might want to convey. Please keep your message concise and professional. Also fill out the “To” and “From” fields on the reserve side of the document.

Here is some suggested text for you to use as a springboard for your message:

Dear [elected official],

I urge you to reject all gun control — whether it’s Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders or Universal Background Checks or semi-auto bans. Honest citizens should not have their rights stripped because of what a crazed killer might do. Please stop the assault on our liberties!

4. Fold the letter on the dotted lines, seal it with a piece of tape (do not staple), then affix a USPS “forever” rate first class stamp in the space provided.

5. Drop the letters in the mail on February 1st, 2019 on National Freedom Day!

Again, please take part in this national campaign — our freedoms are worth standing up for!
