Bernie Sanders Wins Big in New Hampshire
When the 2016 presidential campaign got underway, it seemed the only question on the Democrat side was if Hillary Clinton would sweep every state and be crowned the winner in early or late March. Well, the results of the first two states have thrown a giant monkey wrench in Clinton’s plans.

ISIS Supporter Specifically Targeted Gun-Free Zone for Attack
NRA has been criticized by our opponents for contending that those seeking to wreak mass violence on innocents choose their targets based on the likelihood that they will meet armed resistance, and that armed citizens could assist in halting this type of violent attack. As part of their efforts, gun control activists and their allies in the media have frequently lampooned NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s astute remarks that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” The bankruptcy of this anti-gun position was exposed late last week when details from an FBI terrorism investigation revealed that an alleged ISIS supporter chose the target for a planned terrorist attack because it was a gun-free zone.

Good Samaritan Faces Anti-Gun Senselessness After Life-Saving Action
We know from Shannon Watts of the Bloomberg-backed gun control group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America that when it comes to a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy, “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.” Well, it didn’t happen again in Warren, Michigan, on Wednesday. Really, it didn’t. Because this time, it was a good guy stopping a bad gal.

Bloomberg’s Everytown Launches Patronizing Effort to Attract Young Women, Stigmatize Gun-Owning Men
Few things are as painfully uncool as a 73-year-old billionaire’s desperate attempts to be relevant. This fact is brought into stark realization by Michael Bloomberg front-group Everytown for Gun Safety’s ham-handed new campaign aimed at stigmatizing guns and gun-owning men among young women. Dubbed “Singled Out,” the campaign website curiously seeks to drive young women to the gun control cause by way of disparaging men who own firearms.

Has the VA Deprived You of Your Second Amendment Rights? NRA Wants to Hear From You!
As we have reported several times in the past (including here and here), the Veterans Administration (VA) has been reporting to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) the identities of its beneficiaries who have been assigned a “fiduciary” to manage their benefits. The VA claims that such determinations constitute an “adjudication of mental defectiveness” under federal law, thereby prohibiting the beneficiary (presumptively for life) from acquiring or possessing firearms. The NRA has for several years been supporting legislation to correct this unjustified infringement on Second Amendment rights, including the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act (H.R. 2001, Rep. Jeff Miller, R-FL) and the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act of 2015 (S. 2002, Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX).
Michael Bloomberg is ALL IN to strip away your Second Amendment Rights!  Are you ALL IN to make sure he doesn't succeed?!

Michael Bloomberg is ALL IN to strip away your Second Amendment Rights! Are you ALL IN to make sure he doesn't succeed?!
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is in a spending freefall attacking our gun rights all across the U.S., on multiple fronts…in Congress, in state legislatures, and on the airwaves. Further, he’s gathering signatures and pouring money into anti-freedom ballot initiatives in states like WA, NV ME, and AZ.   In the ’15 VA elections, he spent more than $2 million on a couple of state senate races!  If he’s willing to invest that much in VA alone, imagine how much of his BILLIONS he will spend in ’16 all across the nation!

Another Victory in the Courts
Another Victory in the Courts

In this News Minute from the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, Jennifer Zahrn reports that a federal circuit court of appeals has ruled that Maryland’s ban on so-called assault weapons “implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment.” The ruling sends the case of Kolbe v. Maryland back to a lower court for review. This time, the court must use a higher standard of scrutiny than was applied previously in the case.
