Speaker of the House John Boehner was one of many Republicans campaigning to stop Obama’s agenda, including the anti-gun ObamaCare and the President’s illegal executive amnesty decree.
But that was before the election. Now fast forward to the battle over the anti-gun funding bill last week, which saw Speaker Boehner and the President working arm-in-arm to pass it.

“[B]etween 40 and 50 Republican representatives have already jumped ship and are opposing the Republican leadership,” Gun Owners of America told members in a Tuesday alert describing rank and file push-back against what is being widely perceived as a GOP betrayal and sell-out. “This means that at least a fifth -- and maybe more -- of [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi’s minions will have to be ordered to support [House Speaker John] Boehner for it to pass. And Pelosi has made it clear to the press that the bill will have to be altered to be satisfactory to her in order for her to provide those votes.Read More
Some gun rights advocates are urging lawmakers to defund the federal government over what they see as a major threat to the Second Amendment.
Gun Owners of America (GOA) says Republicans should vote against a trillion-dollar government funding package Thursday afternoon that would avert another shutdown in Washington, because it would also provide more than $1billion in support for “Barack Obama’s anti-gun executive actions.”
“It ‘fights gun violence’ with $1.1 billion — an increase of $53 million,” said GOA’s chairman and executive director Tim Macy.Read More
According to recent reports, a duo of hooded men targeted a Springdale, Ark., gun and pawn shop last weekend in an attempt to rob its owners at gunpoint.
“They split up,” Springdale Police Lt. Derek Hudson said. “They both pulled out handguns that looked like black semiautomatic pistols and began to rob the store.”
While one of the suspects was reportedly able to overpower a male owner, his partner fared much worse at the hands of a female behind the counter.

It’s a terrifying scenario to think about. Three armed men force their way into your home, injure you and your spouse and then tie you both up before ransacking your home.
