Gun Rights

THE DARK CLOUD FROM THE MIDTERMS

Is I-594 The First Warning?
By Harold Hutchison

Supporters of the Second Amendment can justifiably celebrate many achievements from 4 November: Gun-grabbers were turned out of the Senate, and the new Senate that takes office in January will block Barack Obama’s anti-gun judicial nominees. They even have reason to celebrate the defeat of some gun-grabbing gubernatorial candidates. But after a well-deserved pat on the back for the successes, it is time to take a sober look at a threat.

Will a law banning semi-autos, like this M1A be next in Washington state?

MIXED RESULTS FOR GUN RIGHTS

Billionaire Gun-Grabbers Win in Washington, But Anti-Gunners Defeated in Senate Races
By Harold Hutchison

The mid-term elections held on 4 November were a mixed bag for supporters of the Second Amendment. While major victories included the demotion of anti-gun Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) to Senate Minority Leader, there were also some significant setbacks.

Anti-gun Senators like Mark Udall (D-CO), Kay Hagan (D-NC), and Mark Pryor (D-AR) were turned out by pro-Second Amendment voters in favor of Cory Gardner (pictured), Thom Tillis, and Tom Cotton, respectively. Anti-gun Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) was hed to 42% and faces a runoff in December that she is expected to lose (support NRA-PVF to make sure!). Anti-gun candidates running for Senate seats in Iowa (Bruce Braley), Kentucky (Alison Lundergan Grimes), and Montana (Amanda Curtis) were also defeated by pro-Second Amendment candidates. The news was not all good in the Senate, as gun-grabber Mark Warner (D-VA) lead Ed Gillespie by about 12,000 votes as of Wednesday morning, and anti-gun Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) also held on.

Naw...My Vote Doesn’t Count...or Why I Am A Stupid, Lazy Loser

RKB Memoir Cover

By Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, USAR (Ret.)
From the December, 2014 issue of SOF

On how many occasions, come election time, do you hear gunnies come up with some inane excuse as to why they are not going to vote? “Oh, my vote doesn't count,” they snivel. “The politicians will do whatever they damn please. A pox on both houses.” Well, SOFers, if that was the case, why do all the left-wing, bottom feeders swarm to the ballot box? Because they know that voting Democratic will ensure they get their share of slop at the public trough. Or I should say, filtching dollars out of your and my wallet?
