For all the careful staging and coaching politicians use to maintain their public images, sometimes they still slip up and say what they really think.  Who can forget President Obama’s infamous remark to wealthy donors in San Francisco that rural Americans who feel abandoned by the economy “get bitter and they cling to guns or religion”?

Chris Cox: We Love Our Moms and Trust Our Doctors, But We Still Don’t Want Gun Control

10:20 PM 05/22/2014

For the past five decades the organized gun control community has been trying to sell the American people an idea they've made clear they don’t want: civilian disarmament.  Much like a company trying to unload a terrible product, repeated rejection has forced gun control advocates to perpetually reinvent their groups and messaging in an attempt to make their agenda more acceptable.

Michael Bloomberg Will Haunt You In The Afterlife

9:34 AM 05/09/2014

Michael Bloomberg, the 15th-richest man in the world, has announced that he is going to spend $50 million on a “grassroots” campaign against the National Rifle Association. In politics, that is a huge amount of money—far more than the amount of money the NRA has been able to spend on politics in the last several years. Other billionaires, including Warren Buffett, have announced that they, too, will support Bloomberg’s campaign.

Anti-Gun Gov. Cuomo calls for banishment of pro-gun opposition

4:13 PM 03/26/2014

Politicians seeking to diminish Second Amendment rights often couch their views in language that hides their true agenda. But, on January 17, pro-gun advocates were squarely confronted with the contempt in which they are held by some political elites. Speaking on “The Capitol Pressroom” public radio program, Governor Andrew Cuomo labeled gun rights supporters who are “pro-assault weapon” and critical of his so-called SAFE Act as “extreme conservatives” who “have no place in the state of New York.” Ironically, this statement says more about Cuomo himself than those he attacks.

Gun control lobby continues to ignore the facts about background checks

9:25 AM 03/07/2014

The Brady Campaign’s recent report that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) has “stopped more than 2.1 million would-be gun purchases” sure sounds impressive – only it isn’t true.

The battle against mass government surveillance

7:17 AM 01/31/2014

It’s no secret that national gun registration is a long-standing aspiration for the gun control crowd. For decades, anti-gun politicians have clamored to know who owns guns, how many, what kind and where they’re kept. But there’s never a good answer about why they want to know these sensitive details. They just want to know.

Colorado’s clear message: Take our freedom, lose your job

5:46 PM 10/22/2013

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.

NRA’s Chris Cox: False flags flying high

4:03 PM 10/09/2013

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.

Bob Costas interrupts football game to bash American gun owners

2:11 PM 12/03/2012

When celebrities and media personalities attempt to plumb the depths of our social consciousness, the result is rarely pretty. Such was the case Sunday night when NBC sportscaster Bob Costas shamelessly tried to capitalize on the recent and tragic murder-suicide involving the NFL’s Jovan Belcher to score personal political points against law-abiding gun owners.

Gun owners enter the fight of our lives

12:09 AM 11/15/2012

The NRA has been saying all along that Barack Obama would unleash an assault on our Second Amendment freedoms if he won a second term. It sure didn’t take long for him to prove us right.

Just 14 days to freedom

Few elections in American history have mattered more to the future of our gun rights than the one that will take place just two weeks from today.
