Gun Control Supporters Are Once Again Rebranding Their Efforts
Decades of failure to strip Americans of their gun rights has forced gun control groups to continually retool their anti-freedom message in the hopes of making it more palatable to the American public. As reported by Politico this week, the latest rebranding effort comes courtesy of gun control organization Americans for Responsible Solution, founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and husband Mark Kelly. The group is sharing its focus-group-tested findings with Democratic strategists and other components of the institutional Left in order to soften some of their anti-gun messaging in the hopes that this will help them to better influence an unsuspecting public.

Massachusetts Attorney General Unilaterally Bans Thousands of Previously Legal Guns
On July 19, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey issued an “enforcement notice” that greatly expands the Commonwealth’s definition of “assault weapon.”  AG Healey alleges that the ban’s definition of “copy” or “duplicate” “assault weapons” has been misinterpreted for the last 18 years and she is simply the first law enforcement official to discover this incorrect interpretation. Unfortunately for AG Healey, the history of Massachusetts’ ban on “assault weapons” makes perfectly clear exactly which types of firearms the legislature intended to ban.

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox delivered an impassioned address to the nation at the 2016 Republican National Convention. He identified the Second Amendment as protecting the crucial right to self-defense needed by vulnerable members of society. It is this individual right to bear arms, he said, that Hillary Clinton would deny to her fellow women and to all Americans. In order to prevent her from filling the Supreme Court with anti-gun appointees and destroying the integrity of the Second Amendment for future generations, he called on Americans to vote for Donald Trump in this year's presidential election. Originally aired 7/19/16.

A Message to Elites: We Don't Need You
A Message to Elites: We Don't Need You

This nation is run by elites—media figures, Hollywood celebrities and politicians—who decide on where the country is headed by making deals in back rooms without consulting the voting public. It's time for ordinary Americans to reclaim our future, to stand up and take our country back. We are the NRA, and we are Freedom's Safest Place.

Freedom's Safest Place | Compassion

The elites who run our nation allow dangerous felons back on the streets over and over to potentially prey on the innocent. They call it compassion when they give criminals multiple chances, but how compassionate is it to the victims they prey on? We are the NRA, and we are Freedom's Safest Place.
