NSSF Statement Regarding the Bipartisan Sportmen’s Act

NSSF-SocialMediaSquare

NSSF today issued this statement regarding the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act, S. 2363, that earlier today, failed to garner the  60 votes needed to move towards final passage: NSSF understands why pro-sportsmen members from both sides of the aisle wanted an opportunity to vote on amendments unique to their respective states. That said, it is disheartening to see […]



Senate Votes to Move Ahead with Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act

On Monday evening, the United States Senate voted by an overwhelming 82-12 margin to move ahead with consideration of S. 2363, the Bipartisan Sportsmen Act of 2014. We can expect Senators this week to begin debating the most important package of pro-sportsmen’s legislation in a generation. Monday’s vote was just the first. We can expect […]



Call and Urge Your Senators to Co-sponsor the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act

The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act, S. 2363, is the most important package of measures for the benefit of sportsmen in a generation and 45 Senators are already co-sponsors. If yours are, thank them for their leadership. If they are not, as a firearm owner, hunter, target shooter or outdoor trade business owner, call or send emails and urge them to […]



Hillary Clinton Sees “Terrorizing” Ideas in Gun Owners’ Convictions

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know that Hillary Clinton has been relentlessly promoting her new book that chronicles her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. Despite her claims to the contrary, she is using her book as a platform and its tour as a shadow campaign for her 2016 presidential run.  A New York […]



Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Admits to Regrets over Anti-gun Legislation

A little over a year ago, Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado signed into law a host of gun control legislation. The most controversial of the laws outlawed the sale of magazines of more than ten rounds capacity.  However, just last week, the Democratic Governor said that he regretted signing that legislation, among other admissions. Speaking to a gathering of sheriffs from […]



Conn. Governor Malloy and his Gun Politics

I guess that Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy must have missed us. And by “missed us”, I mean he missed making up stuff about us or either pretending he doesn’t know much about the firearms industry that has such a significant presence in his state or is so uneducated about federal and state law that it […]



How the Firearms Industry Leads the Way on Gun Safety And What the Anti-Gun Activists Won’t Acknowledge

Recently, an acquaintance encountered a church member in the Washington, D.C. area handing out material advocating the need to end “straw purchases” of firearms – the term that describes when someone who is not prohibited buys a firearm on behalf of someone who is.  He struck up a conversation with the person, who went on […]



We Wish We Never Knew Yee

The news stunned those who follow politics and government in California. The FBI is charging State Sen. Leland Yee with conspiracy to traffic in firearms and public corruption as part of a major investigation centered in San Francisco, the city he represents. Term limited from running again for what had been his safe state Senate […]



Sen. Murphy Likes the Firearms Industry Boogeyman

Thought Michael Bloomberg would be chastened after the disastrous 2013 Mayors Against Illegal Guns group had and the recent news nearly 50 mayors ditched MAIG because of its extreme positions? You don’t know Mike. Instead, MAIG was back at it recently, releasing a report on the number of school shootings since the Sandy Hook tragedy […]



Biden Gets It Right (Finally)

Joe Biden doesn’t have the best track record as a go-to source for common sense when it comes to firearms. After all, the vice president advocated protecting one’s home by randomly firing a shotgun into the air, an act that is both dangerous and illegal. He was also tapped as the Obama administration point person to push a […]
