    Bloomberg to Launch Proprietary Anti-Gun Media Arm
    The ceaseless torrent of anti-gun commentary from the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, and other “mainstream” media outlets, apparently isn’t enough for billionaire firearm prohibitionist Michael Bloomberg. On May 8, Capital reported that the ex-mayor of New York is developing a “news operation” to work alongside his Everytown for Gun Safety organization in furtherance of his megalomaniacal gun control agenda.

    LEGAL & LEGISLATION
    House Passes NRA-Backed Legislation to Reign in Mass Surveillance
    On the heels of a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit holding that the government had overstepped its bounds with bulk collection of telephone metadata under Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, the House on Wednesday voted to pass the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015. This NRA-backed legislation would reauthorize Section 215, which expires on May 22, but with significant curbs to prevent its misuse against Americans who are under no individualized suspicion of wrongdoing.

    LEGAL & LEGISLATION NEWS
    Obama Administration Opposes CMP Handgun Sales
    The House of Representatives has approved Congressman Mike D. Rogers’ amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, which—if accepted in the Senate—could make it possible for Americans who meet stringent requirements to purchase a military surplus handgun from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. As NRA High Power and CMP Service Rifle competitors know, the CMP is authorized under federal law to sell surplus rifles and ammunition to U.S. citizens of age, who belong to shooting clubs affiliated with the program, after passing a background check, and satisfying all federal and state laws. Representative Rogers’ amendment would simply extend the authorization to include other firearms. For example, allowing the Army to provide the program with 100,000 M1911 .45 caliber pistols. This would benefit the Army, the CMP and taxpayers alike.

    LEGAL & LEGISLATION
    Anti-Gun Lawmakers Seek to Stop Online Ammunition Sales
    On May 12, 2015, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) introduced H.R. 2283 or the Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2015. According to a report from The Hill (full text of the legislation has not been received by the Government Publishing Office at press time) the bill would require that ammunition sellers be federally licensed, that online ammunition purchasers show a photo identification in-person at an “authorized dealer” in order to take receipt of their orders, and that any purchases of more than 1000 rounds made within five consecutive days be reported to the Attorney General.

    Fail: Professor Claims Gun Rights Lead to Grade Inflation
    Most critics of campus carry couch their cultural bigotry against firearms and their owners in the dubious rhetoric of “public safety.” Yet an instructor at Texas Women’s University has come up with a new argument to suppress Second Amendment rights on campus. Writing in Newsweek, TWU Assistant Professor of Sociology Jessica Gullion stokes fears that campus carry would lead to rampant grade inflation. “Will we soon see a new sort of grade inflation,” Gullion asks, “with students earning a 4.0 GPA with their firepower rather than brainpower?”

    They have already done that for 50+ years. Yet no one fights the education system to fix it and make sure truth about American heritage and the U.S. Constitution is being taught. The schools are just viewed as babysitters for parents that do not give a crap anymore for anything other than their own selfish needs.
    The Communists and Marxists have had free reign for a long long time to manipulate the minds of the kids, and many of you were probably victims of that since the 60's and don't even realize what it has done to you.

    Many of You may not like that but it is a sad fact. The ones that actually saw it coming are few in truth.
    If they tried what they did in a month or a year back then they would have all been taken from the country in caskets, but they "boiled the frog" and no one felt it happen. At least most of the country did not. The ones that did are now on forums like this trying to figure out how to salvage what we have left.

    Progressivism goes back to Bismarck and Wilson. Hard to stop other than by self-collapse.

    Those with kids get on the school boards and get other parents that understand to do the same and you can also do the old fashioned things like protest like the left does and sue the districts when they teach leftist BS and refuse to teach the foundation courses that actually instill some patriotism and pride of country. When they mis teach and lie about the Constitution, and especially the 2nd they need to be held accountable and the kids need to be retaught the truth, not just overlooked with a slap on the wrist to the teachers that do it.

    Well maybe collapse as you call it may need to be done and then rebirth of the Nation?
    Doing nothing and placebo stuff sure won't fix it.

    It's a natural cycle. Even after a "rebirth" it will start over and follow the same direction again... It's like water it always flows downhill and follows the path of least resistance. Without pain and suffering we as human beings don't understand the value of what we have or what was given to us. Just like with children. If you spoil them they won't appreciate.

    The only chance is to elect a Constitutional President who in turn appoints Constitutional Supreme Court Justices.

    Following the Constitution is considered "esoteric" today.
