    Second Amendment Activist Centers
    These Centers will provide NRA members and gun owners with NRA buttons, Fact Sheets on legislation and issues, volunteer sign-up forms, voter registration materials, and, in election years, information on grassroots activities and events. Also, we are encouraging all Second Amendment Activist Centers that are able to do so, to make a computer terminal with Internet access available to their patrons so they may access our website -- NRA-PVF | PVF Home -- and e-mail their lawmakers, on-the-spot, utilizing our site's "Write Your Representatives" and other features (specifically, the "Help Save America's Firearms Industry" section).

    For more information about Second Amendment Activist Centers click here.

    Taku, brother, I do Not know, if it is my iPad Mini, or what....

    But the links above, Yesterday, for Oregon .GOV, tested twice, lead me to an Error in website. FYI, I use Opera for main operating browser, I ~must use~ Safari by default, and will test them again before I send this... ;)

    OK, that worked... I am still posting this, as there might be others who have issues like I did.

    Again, links, not working in Opera, do work in Safari, I can report that, even without the diagnostic understanding of WHY.

    philip,
    In the Boon Docks, still learning the operating system of Apple iOS.

    Not sure about opera or safari, but IE and foxfire work well. I thought about using apple, but dont want to learn a new OS.
    Most on the state sites lead to PDF files. That is also the format the send out the agendas in.

    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.

    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.

    Well, here we go again. Another group of wealthy, elitist supporters of gun control have come together, spending their own money to form a new organization to pursue their personal, pet agenda. This would be unremarkable, except that this time they are using the rare gambit of pretending to be a group that actually supports the Second Amendment.
