Second Amendment News - July 27, 2019

The big news this week is the NRA trouble that has been in the news lately.  I still support the NRA - I sort of have to as I am an instructor and rely on them for my credentials.  But the NRA is going through a lot of financial, ethical, and moral trouble.  Add to that the fact that many left-wing agencies are targeting them.  If they are successful in bringing down the NRA, they will be emboldened to start attacking other groups like NAGR, GOA, FPC, and others

The trouble continues to emerge from liberal, activist judges who are making ridiculous rulings regarding the applicability of the Second Amendment to particular types of firearms.  Our founders did not make for these types of restrictions to be put in place, and in fact, wrote the Second Amendment with the intent that citizens would have weapons in common use.  This activist judge further makes statements to illustrate once again that these people have no clue about firearms or their usage, but presume to lecture the rest of us about them.  But this is dangerous and can set horrible precedence.  If not overturned by higher courts, or if the Supreme Court refuses to hear this case and it is upheld by the next lower court, this will pave the way for extremely bad anti-gun laws to be put in place.

The good news is that there are many other gun rights groups that are doing an excellent job moving forward with lawsuits and efforts to protect our rights.  stay tuned and stay aware.
