By Jake McGuigan There must be something in the water in the Hudson River. First it was the Bronx and Queens when U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) asserted — with zero scientific evidence — that traditional lead hunting ammunition “poisons everything in sight.” Now, anti-hunting Democratic lawmakers in the state’s capital are pushing an egregiously […]

Beware the Latest Dorr Brothers ‘No Compromise’ Scam Gun Rights Org in Indiana

By Chris Lee The Indiana legislature has made great strides in protecting the Second Amendment Rights of law-abiding Hoosiers in recent years.

john cornyn

So-called “universal” background checks were back in the news last week. The Biden administration and the regime press were promoting the impression that ATF’s new “engaged in the business” rule closed the non-existent “gun show loophole” and prohibited all private firearm transfers – it did nothing of the sort.

Whether he’s losing battles with his teleprompter, his train of thought spectacularly derailing, forgetting which politicians have passed away, or simply mumbling incoherently, President Biden has proven himself to be arguably the most inarticulate man to ever occupy the White House. But then there […]
