LETTERMAN ATTACKS PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT SENATORS

Cruz, McConnell, Labeled Stooges
By Harold Hutchison

Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have come under a scurrilous attack recently for standing up for the Second Amendment during the recent debate in the U.S. Senate. The attacks came from late-night comic David Letterman.

SOROS OPENS THE CHECKBOOK

Spent $7 Million to Grab Your Guns
By Harold Hutchison

While New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the most notorious big money man for the gun-grabbing extremists, another billionaire is opening his checkbook. George Soros, who has funded anti-gun efforts to the tune of $7 million.

Among the recipients of Soros’s largesse: The Brady Campaign, perhaps the most visible anti-gun group that has counted Sarah Brady as a long-running activist against your Second Amendment rights, and the Children’s Defense Fund, which recently launched a “Protect Children, Not Guns” campaign.

FEINSTEIN: “DO AWAY” WITH “ASSAULT WEAPONS”

Senator Admits Gun-Grab Agenda
By Harold Hutchison

Even as her semi-auto ban failed, garnering only 40 votes in the Democrat-controlled Senate, notorious gun-grabber Dianne Feinstein was out calling for America to “do away” with semi-automatic firearms that she labels “assault weapons.”

Statement from Chris W. Cox on U.S. Senate Defeat of Manchin-Toomey-Schumer Amendment

Today, the misguided Manchin-Toomey-Schumer proposal failed in the U.S. Senate. This amendment would have criminalized certain private transfers of firearms between honest citizens, requiring lifelong friends, neighbors and some family members to get federal government permission to exercise a fundamental right or face prosecution. As we have noted previously, expanding background checks, at gun shows or elsewhere, will not reduce violent crime or keep our kids safe in their schools.

ON THE VERGE OF VICTORY?

NRA Likely to Defeat Gun Grab
By Harold Hutchison

The National Rifle Association may be on the verge of defeating S. 649 – a victory after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut that left 20 children and six adults dead at the hands of a shooter who committed suicide.

FEINSTEIN CALLS FOR BAN ON PRIVATE GUN SALES

Gun-Grabbing Senator Cites Terrorists
By Harold Hutchison

Want to sell a gun to a friend or a co-worker you have known for years? If Dianne Feinstein gets her way, you may become a federal felon for doing that.

According to a report by Breitbart.com’s Big Government, Feinstein made comments claiming that terrorists would try to buy guns at gun shows during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program.

“Can a terrorist currently buy a gun in this country? Yes. Can a felon? Yes. You go to a gun show and virtually no questions are asked,” Feinstein said, adding later on, “I have a

FILIBUSTER FAILS

Sixteen Republicans Go Soft
By Harold Hutchison

The United States Senate moved on to debate a gun bill that would impose wide-ranging background checks on all gun purchases. This comes as the NRA announced that it would “score” the votes on some of the amendments that will come up.

The Senate vote to end a filibuster lead by Rand Paul on the motion to proceed was 68-31, with sixteen Republicans voting to move the bill to the floor of the United States Senate, while Democrats Mark Pryor and Mark Begich, both facing tough re-election races, voted to sustain the filibuster.

Statement from the National Rifle Association Regarding Toomey-Manchin Background Check Proposal

Expanding background checks at gun shows will not prevent the next shooting, will not solve violent crime and will not keep our kids safe in schools. While the overwhelming rejection of President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg's "universal" background check agenda is a positive development, we have a broken mental health system that is not going to be fixed with more background checks at gun shows. The sad truth is that no background check would have prevented the tragedies in Newtown, Aurora or Tucson.
