Good and evil. Right and wrong.Those are two fundamental opposing concepts that define the nature of humankind.

“Leadership, in short, is power governed by principle, directed toward raising people to their highest levels of personal motive and social morality.”
—James MacGregor Burns, Pulitzer Prize historian
I was recently in deep discussion about the serial scandals of the Obama administration: refusal to stem the flood of illegal aliens pouring across our porous borders; get-out-of-jail-free pass release of more than 36,000 illegal aliens with criminal convictions; legal challenges to state laws designed to prevent voter fraud and the flagrant cover-up of the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) war on the political free speech of American citizens.
Do you want to know where President Barack Obama is ultimately headed with his gun control edicts? Look no further than his second embrace of the tyranny of Australia’s massive gun “buyback” program. Australia’s edicts resulted in the confiscation and destruction of more than 1 million registered rifles, shotguns and handguns forcibly taken from licensed gun owners.
For any American who is worried about this country, who feels our core values slipping away, who believes something has to be done to change the direction of our nation before all is lost—the NRA is your refuge. It is your place to stand and fight with Americans just like you, for all that is good and right.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, among the world’s richest men, believes his personal fortune can erase the liberty of every American who would exercise the right to keep and bear arms. He plans liquidation of our rights a step-at-a-time—spending millions of dollars of his bottomless personal fortune at a time.
I recently visited a colleague who is a remarkable detective when it comes to conducting Internet research. He likens his work to peeling an onion. In the Internet universe, he says, the layers and interconnection of information and data are seamless, appearing to be without end.
With a compliant Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate that consistently defends the president’s executive theft of power, Barack Obama and his allies are well on their way to carrying out his 2008 threat to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
In the face of repeated federal court decisions decisively blocking the City of Chicago’s ongoing denial of full Second Amendment protections to its beleaguered residents, Mayor Rahm Emanuel nonetheless remains determined to undermine individual liberty through subterfuge.
It’s great to be here today, thanks for having me. I really appreciate your warm welcome.
Brace yourself for a tough year, because 2014 could be remembered as the turning point in the loss of your Second Amendment rights.
With the appointment of John Podesta as President Barack Obama’s enforcer, the nation’s gun owners can expect poisonous efforts—outside the rule of law—to create harsh back-door gun controls through widespread abuse of executive power.
When President Barack Obama and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid forced a party-line vote in November to strip the minority’s right to speak from U.S. Senate rules, the founder’s 224-year-old vision of separation of powers took a grievous hit. That highly partisan action makes effective opposition to unwise and ideologically extreme judicial nominations especially difficult, and imperils the future of the Second Amendment. It’s just a matter of time before this “tyranny of the majority” makes the rule change applicable to Supreme Court nominations and legislation itself.

With the stroke of his royal pen, President Barack Obama declared that federal law in the form of a 17-year congressional funding ban on gun-control “research” at the Center for Disease Control (CDC) was trumped by his personal decree through an executive order restoring the CDC’s junk-science agenda.
The tyrants and dictators at the United Nations will stop at nothing to register, ban and, eventually, confiscate firearms owned by law-abiding Americans like you and me. The U.N. has been working for nearly 15 years to force its gun banning Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on the United States.
As stunning revelations from the deepening scandals at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) continue to draw headlines, it is clear that the targeting of groups for their belief in the sanctity of the U.S. Constitution could easily spread to Americans who cherish the Second Amendment.
President Barack Obama’s condescending commencement address urging Ohio University graduates to reject voices warning Americans of “tyranny” is an Obama-in-your-face reference to NRA and a host of groups his bureaucrats are trying to crush with their abuse of executive power.
To understand the current state of the gun-ban crowd’s “conversation” about destroying the Second Amendment, it boils down to this: insanity versus sanity.
