Beto Going All-In on Confiscation
Democrat Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke continues to struggle to gain any sort of traction for his campaign. With some polls putting him in 10th place, and his average sitting around 7th, some might say that it is desperation time for the candidate who was once a darling with the far left and the legacy media while he was running his losing campaign to unseat U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). A recent tweet from O’Rourke is just one clue that the candidate is, indeed, becoming desperate.

House Democrats Continue Unprecedented Push for More Gun Control
As was continually threatened while Congress was on its six-week Summer break, House Democrats hastily convened a hearing on Tuesday to promote their latest batch of anti-gun bills.  The House Judiciary Committee’s markup of three bills, with Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) controlling the process, went as one might expect.  The anti-gun Democrat majority railed against guns, while Republicans demonstrated the innumerable flaws with each proposal.

Tell Your Lawmakers: No Semi-Auto and Magazine Ban!
The Democrat Party is now so aligned with gun control that every major candidate running for its 2020 presidential nomination recently appeared in a propaganda video produced by one of the nation’s most active firearm prohibition groups. It should come as no surprise, then, that a bill introduced in the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to ban most modern semi-automatic long guns, and the original-equipment magazines used with such firearms, is rapidly gaining steam. Your help is urgently needed to ensure this wide-ranging gun ban never becomes law.

On September 3, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors smeared millions of law-abiding Americans by unanimously adopting a resolution that designated NRA a “domestic terrorist organization.” Less than one week later, on September 9, NRA filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against the City and County of San Francisco and the Board of Supervisors to vindicate the political and First Amendment rights of NRA members and all Americans.

Stanford Law Professor John Donohue and Theodora Boulouta, a Stanford undergrad, wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times that claims their new research shows the 1994 “assault weapons” ban really did work.  Their finding is that, “Compared with the decade before its adoption, the federal assault weapon ban in effect from September 1994 through 2004 was associated with a 25 percent drop in gun massacres (from eight to six) and a 40 percent drop in fatalities (from 81 to 49).”

NRA-ILA’s Grassroots Programs and Campaign Field Operations Division hosted multiple seminars during the 2019 NRA Personal Protection Expo in Fort Worth,Texas to educate gun owners on the importance of getting involved in the 2020 Elections.

Dear San Francisco: I am not a terrorist.
Dear San Francisco: I am not a terrorist.

NRA members attending the NRA Personal Protection Expo in Texas wanted to give a message to the anti-gun San Francisco politicians who declared the NRA a "domestic terrorist organization." We are proud that the NRA is the most diverse and inclusive group in America. NRA members are police officers, veterans, teachers, nurses, mothers, fathers, construction workers, firefighters, and law-abiding Americans... WE ARE NOT TERRORISTS. #IAmTheNRA
