    Gallup poll: A minority of Americans want more gun laws

    Nearly a year after the Newtown, Conn., school shootings spawned considerable U.S. debate about passing stricter gun control laws, almost half of Americans believe the laws covering the sale of firearms should be strengthened and half say they should stay the same or be less strict.

    The job of police: No duty to protect

    As NRA members, one of our key roles in defending liberty is to educate people who have little understanding of the real meaning of the Second Amendment. And often our responsibility is to dissect the biggest lies of the gun ban crowd -- among them, the notion that individuals don't need guns to protect themselves because that's the job of the police.

    Appeal for decision on D.C.'s gun carry-rights ban

    The nation's capital is the only place in America where no one is allowed to exercise his right to bear arms.This is clearly unconstitutional, but the courts have thrown up repeated roadblocks to delay the law getting overturned for more than four years. The federal appeals court now will decide if this delay can continue.

    Women fast-growing segment of outdoor enthusiasts

    Move over, boys. The girls are coming to deer camp and the ol' fishing hole, too, and they are doing it in record numbers. While that might not be news to folks who have been around the outdoor world for more than a few years and have read the sign, it probably is to those who haven't. Not to mention those who don't necessarily appreciate the hunting and fishing sports for what they are.

    Secretary General of Interpol Suggests an Armed Citizenry to Combat Terrorist Violence

    In his speech to the American public on December 21, 2012, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre made clear, "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." The sentence is a concise summary of NRA's long-held position on the Right-to-Carry, and illustrates one of the reasons NRA-ILA works to abolish restrictions on this right throughout the country. Predictably, anti-gun groups and some in the media failed to grasp the straightforward logic of the remark, or perhaps they grasped it all too well and feared what it would mean for their cause. As a result, they have criticized and attacked it.

    Anti-Gun Group "Gets Religion" for Latest Gimmick

    On Sunday, the anti-gun Children's Defense Fund (CDF) set up a sideshow in front of the Washington National Cathedral during which blacksmiths melted, hammered and ground "weapons" into hand-held garden tools, for what it called "a modern-day interpretation of the biblical passage about beating swords into plowshares."

    Good and Bad News in Latest Gallup Poll

    Gallup's most recent poll on public attitudes toward gun laws shows that anti-gun activists and their friends in elected office and in the media have lost considerable ground over the years, and in the months since the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut in December last year. However, it also shows that both sides in the gun control debate have their work cut out for them in the days ahead.

    Colorado's Clear Message: Take Our Freedom, Lose Your Job

    NRA members and gun owners in Colorado shocked the nation last month when two anti-gun state senators were successfully recalled for the first time in state history. We sent a clear message to politicians at every level of government that if they take our freedom, we'll take their jobs.

    University of Kansas Professor Suspended over NRA Tweet won't Return for Remainder Of 2013

    Last month, we reported on the case of University of Kansas journalism professor David Guth who, in the wake of the atrocity at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., singled out the NRA as the cause of the violence and offered what he considered just recompense. "The blood is on the hands of the NRA," he wrote in a tweet on his personal account. "Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you."

    Judicial Activism on Display in Pennsylvania

    Pennsylvania's state motto is "Virtue, liberty, and independence," but liberty took a hit this week with a disturbing ruling by the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Given the decision in Commonwealth v. McKown, Keystone State residents cannot lawfully carry concealed in-state on a valid concealed carry license (CCL) issued by another jurisdiction. Instead, they may use only a Pennsylvania CCL. This rule applies, moreover, even where Pennsylvania has a reciprocity agreement with the other state.

    Bloomberg Sticks His Nose into Virginia Politics and Earns Three Pinocchios

    Apparently, having billions of dollars in disposal income and being the mayor of America's most populous city (and let's face it, a place with problems of its own) isn't enough to keep billionaire Michael Bloomberg busy. We've often reported on his antics here in the Commonwealth of Virginia (see here, here, and here, for example), and we can thank him for at least one pro-gun law being on Virginia's books.

    So far this thread is somewhat depressing. I kinda took it for granted that nearly everyone, on this forum at least, got these updates from the NRA. I get them. Usually by the time I read this stuff from a member who took the time to post it's old news.

    -Good job Taku! Thank you!

    WOAH HERE . . . Journalism professor, right!!
    Today's journalists, so called, are encouraged to push their personal agendas, especially liberal agendas.
    Therefore he was perfectly within the bounds of propriety set by his profession . . .

    He is teaching, professing, brainwashing at a public university. It is widely recognized that public universities are cesspools of liberal and anti-Constitutional thought.

    You are surprised that he is still getting his paycheck?? . . . AAAAArrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!?!?!

    It used to Berkley an Reed in Portland were communist dominated, but today 90% of them are. Communists, Marxists and Socialists have moved in and dominated education in America since the late 60's and no one tried to stop it. Everyone was diverted into toys, false crisis and self indulgence. Communists said they would defeat us without firing a shot and no one listened. Now we have the fight of our lives to restore the country. Fight we will, til the end. Two ways we can do that.
    Use their tactics against them in earnest, or the back end of a barrel.
    What will it be?

    I've signed up for the NRA daily but for some reason I don't get them and I'm a Life Benefactor member too. but I've also sent them requests for info and never received an answer so maybe I'm on their "black list"?

    Go to your mail server and make sure you list them as NOT SPAM. Accept all in that domain
    The Damn libs that run the servers try to blacklist mail from the NRA, GOA and like organizations and make you accept them, knowing many don't think about it. Look in your spam folder.
