    Ruger's "2 Million Gun Challenge" to Benefit NRA-ILA
    Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has pledged to donate $2 to the NRA for each new Ruger firearm sold between the 2015 and 2016 NRA Annual Meetings, with the goal of giving $4 million. Ruger's donation will benefit the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA). "We're bringing back the One Million Gun Challenge with a twist," said Ruger CEO Mike Fifer. "Our goal is to sell 2 million firearms in a 12-month period. With that, we pledge to donate not one, but two dollars to the NRA for every new firearm sold. We accomplished our goals to support the NRA in 2012, and with the help of our loyal customers, we believe we can do it again."

It is critical that state Representatives hear from gun owners and sportsmen who support this legislation!

    Vince Vaughn defends gun rights

    "I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don't have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It's not about duck hunting; it's about the ability of the individual. It's the same reason we have freedom of speech."

    I've been thinking of picking up another .308 Ruger American Rifle (RAR) because having two is one. ;)

    I want a new Ruger Charger 10/22 and a 3" LCR if they come out with a .357 version, so that's two purchases.

    It could be argued that it's a tax on a right, as opposed to mandating insurance on a privilege like operating an automobile.

    The insurance proposal if fluff and puff by a dimwit politician. She knows it has no chance of passing in the House or the Senate. It will never make it to Obama's desk. Sad to see an elected official wasting the taxpayers funds on this instead of working on improving things like jobs and education.
    I wonder if she is related to Ginny Burdick?

    And good or Ruger.

    Our goal is to sell 2 million firearms in a 12-month period. There is the whole story. The $2 bit is just a diversion. Make it $50 with no increase in retail price, then I might be interested.

    Yes, and I believe it has a very good chance to pass. The insurance industry is a very large and effective lobby. Taxes, aka fees, are imposed routinely on firearms and firearms possessors. The insurance industry sees $$$$$$$, with fees that will be just a little short of onerous so that those who wish to be law-abiding will have to make some difficult decisions. The rest of the populace are the same ilk as those who don't have auto insurance, and will just ignore the law, as they do now.

    If it goes nowhere in Congress, the Bloomboogers will buy their way through the State legislatures, starting with previous success stories such as WA and OR.

    Watch the insurance mandate closely. It would be complete BS if it passes. In the meantime, good job Ruger!

    Maybe the thugs would require you to present proof of insurance prior to purchasing a new firearm.

    Maybe they would. I could pay for it long enough to buy the gun and then just cancel it.

    Or I could just go to the gray market and get it privately, where I am pretty certain no one will ask. :cool:

    Good idea. Mandated insurance for a constitutional right would be BS. I don't see this ever passing but who knows. Keep your eyes glued to any news related to it!
