Fanning the Flames, or Hitch up that Asbestos Pantsuit
|The Trump for President website offers a “Pantsuit on Fire” t-shirt. We don’t know how brisk the sales are, but it’s a safe bet that sales are outperforming Ms. Clinton’s ratings as an honest candidate (in one August poll, only eleven percent of registered voters described Hillary Clinton as “honest and trustworthy”).|
ATF Delays Any Changes to Nitrocellulose Regulation
|Earlier this summer, ATF released an Explosives Industry Newsletter that changed the agency’s treatment of nitrocellulose, the primary component in smokeless powders used in modern ammunition.

WHAT IS THE FREEDOM CHALLENGE?
The Freedom Challenge grassroots campaign was created by Rock Island Auction Company® to raise awareness and financial support for NRA-ILA, an organization that has stalwartly defended the Second Amendment for decades. 2016 is the most important year we’ve seen in a generation or more. The attack on the Second Amendment is clear; many politicians, government officials and members of the media look to destroy our Constitutional rights. The Supreme Court's greatest Second Amendment advocate — Justice Antonin Scalia — has passed away, leaving a vacancy on the Court that the next president will fill. Simply put, our firearm and other freedoms hang in the balance and it will take an army of us to take a stand.
On November 14, 2016, at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, Ariz., history will be made with 1,000 freedom-loving Americans simultaneously firing 1,000 Henry Repeating Arms Golden Boy Silver rifles! Don't miss this opportunity to help make a new World Record!
