Polls Show Americans Distrust Clinton, and Give Her Supporters Reasons to Panic
While the FBI might have let presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton off the hook for her alleged mishandling of classified information, recent Washington Post/ABC News and CBS/New York Times polls suggest that the American public is far less forgiving. Coupled with recent polls showing presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leading, or within striking distance, in several swing states, some in the Clinton camp are beginning to panic.

Washington Post: Obama Lies Again
It’s as if Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are in a contest to see who can tell the most lies.  On Tuesday, during the memorial service for the five law enforcement officers who were killed in Dallas on July 7, Obama said, “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”

Justice Ginsburg Once Again Shares Her Intent to Overturn Heller
This past week, Associate U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave a series of controversial interviews for which she has received nearly universal condemnation, even from the usually-fawning establishment press. Most of the headlines focused on Ginsburg’s derogatory statements regarding presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. However, just as important were comments signaling her intent to overturn the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which held that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. Ginsburg signed onto Justice John Paul Stevens and Justice Stephen Breyer’s dissents in Heller and Breyer’s dissent in McDonald v. Chicago, which applied Heller’s protections to the actions of state and local governments.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox to Speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention
"On behalf of the five million men and women of the National Rifle Association, it's an honor to be asked to speak at the Republican Convention.  Donald Trump strongly believes in our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms.  Hillary Clinton does not—she said the Supreme Court was wrong when it said law-abiding Americans have the right to keep a firearm in our homes for self-protection.  For voters who believe in their constitutional freedoms, the choice in this presidential election is clear—that choice is Donald Trump." — Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA Executive Director
