Constitutional Carry Bills Advancing from Coast-to-Coast

The concept of “constitutional carry” is simple:  An individual's ability to exercise his or her Second Amendment rights shouldn't depend on a “permit” from the government.

Currently, there are six states that allow permitless carry throughout all or most of their jurisdictions.

This week in New Hampshire, the full Senate will be taking up SB 116, a constitutional carry bill which previously passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 3-1 vote.

An Unprecedented Constitutional Crisis
by Tim Macy

What if a man ascended to the presidency who was so ruthless in his desire to transform the United States to his bidding that the restraints of the Constitution became irrelevant to him?  

What if his sycophantic Attorney General excused his law-breaking, while his regulators sought to destroy his political opposition?  

What if his vicar in the Senate obliterated the Senate rules in order to pack the courts with toadies and go-fers who existed to do the President's bidding?

Take Action Today!

Contact your Senators and Representative.  Ask them to oppose giving Barack Obama the unbridled authority to impose back-door, UN-styled gun control!

UNITED NATIONS – Giving President Obama fast-track authority to conclude an international trade agreement is like playing Russian roulette with six bullets in the chamber, says one of America’s leading gun rights organizations.

Gun Owners of America is blasting a congressional proposal that empowers Obama to unilaterally negotiate international agreements as “a ‘bait and switch’ scheme that could seriously impact the Second Amendment.”

The Right to Defend Your Family is a “Pro-Life” Value
by Erich Pratt

USA Today isn't exactly a close ally of either the pro-life or Second Amendment movements. So it’s not surprising that on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the newspaper published an opinion piece by Pastor Rob Schenck trying to pick a fight between the two communities. 

That's not going to happen.

College Student Says She’s Glad Her Dad Gave Her The Gun She Used To Fight Off Armed Home Invaders 

A University of Central Florida student says she’s glad her dad gave her a gun to take to school after she needed one to confront two violent home invaders who held her boyfriend at gun point and threatened her life.

Sable Nehme and her boyfriend, Nour Skargee, answered a knock at their off-campus apartment Tuesday. When they opened the door, two men burst in, WFTV reported.

One of the men pointed a gun at Skargee and ordered him to the ground.

“They said ‘we’re going to kill your girl,’” said Skargee, who also attends UCF. “That’s when I really lost hope, you know.”

Nehme told WFTV that she ran to the couple’s bedroom and tried to lock the door.

Hostettler's "Gun Owner Protection Act" Becomes Law!

ELECTION ALERT: Go to http://www.gunowners.org/votetb.htm on the GOA website to check out your Representative and Senators' grades. Check http://www.gunowners.org/cgv.htm to see how they voted.

(Thursday, November 2, 2000) -- Great news! Representative John Hostettler (R) this week secured a tremendous victory for gun owners when his "gun owner protection act" was signed into law.

The need for this legislation began earlier this year, when President Clinton imposed a vast array of new gun restrictions upon gun owners -- restrictions that came about as part of the horrendous deal he cut with gun maker, Smith & Wesson.

Thankfully, Hostettler responded to this sell-out by crafting legislation to protect your rights. He worked hard to get it passed into law. On Monday, Hostettler's "gun owner protection act" became law.

Clinton wanted the sell-out deal with Smith & Wesson to become a model for other gun makers. He was hoping that other manufacturers would "voluntarily" agree to impose further restrictions upon decent people like yourself. Clinton wanted to bypass the Congress and use private industry to tighten the noose around the necks of gun owners.

But something happened on the way to the gallows. John Hostettler forced his legislation through the Congress and by the President. His legislation (attached to the Defense Authorization bill, H.R. 4205) will prevent the DoD from rewarding S&W with fat government contracts when they buy their service weapons. Thus, the major incentive for other gun makers to join S&W is now gone. And the chances that President Clinton can get other gun dealers to impose restrictions upon folks like yourself are virtually gone.

All of this thanks to Rep. John Hostettler. He has, almost single-handedly, quashed the President's plans to bypass Congress and impose draconian curbs upon our gun rights. Gun owners should thank Rep. Hostettler for his tireless defense of the 2nd Amendment.

Now you can get behind the rhetoric your Representative and Senators are dishing out and hold their feet to the fire.

When you go to http://www.gunowners.org/votetb.htm on the GOA website, you will find a Congressional rating that doesn't look at what they say. It analyzes what they've done.

This rating is a valuable tool. Please use it. If your representative or senator has anything less than an "A," look for his or her bad votes. (You can find their votes at http://www.gunowners.org/cgv.htm on the GOA site.)

We need to hold incumbents accountable for their voting record.

That is why in this rating GOA has included not only each Congressman's grade, but also his or her record on just some of the key votes relating to your Second Amendment rights.

And then there are the challengers.

GOA has asked the tough questions of challengers to formulate this rating. We have also looked at their records while holding lower office (if applicable).

So please, study this rating. Make copies of it and hand it out.
