NRA Files For Bankruptcy, Announces Plans To Move To Texas

by Michael Ginsburg, The Daily Caller:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) filed for bankruptcy and will be reincorporating in Texas, the group announced Friday.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre wrote in a letter posted on the non-profit’s website that the group would be “free from the toxic political environment of New York.” New York State Attorney General Letitia James is currently suing the NRA with the goal of dissolving the organization. New York’s lawsuit alleges that top executives, including LaPierre, stole millions of dollars from the gun rights group.

GoDaddy kicks biggest gun forum off internet without explanation

from WND:

Joe Biden once promised that fellow Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, who famously threatened to send cops out to confiscate certain weapons, would be his point person on gun control if elected.

It seems that agenda has been launched, even before Biden’s inauguration.

The Federalist reports, the largest gun forum, has been shut down by the web hosting company GoDaddy.

What Will Happen to Gun Rights Under the Biden Presidency?

by Larry Alton, American Thinker:

Any time a liberal candidate is elected to become President of the United States, gun rights and regulations take center stage. Historically, gun sales have surged in the two months between a Democratic presidential nomination and inauguration. And that’s precisely what we’re seeing right now.

A Quick Primer on the Second Amendment

Whenever gun laws and regulations become a key topic of conversation, it’s important to push past the filler and focus on the meat. In other words, start with the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights and what it says:

Joe Biden Gun Control Proposal Could Bankrupt Firearms Industry

by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s plan to do away with the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) could bankrupt the entire firearms industry.

President George W. Bush signed the PLCAA into law in 2005 as a way of protecting firearms manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits. But Biden campaigned on opening up firearm manufacturers to suits tied to the criminal misuse of the products they make.

Joe Biden’s Gun Agenda Could Cost AR-15 Owners $3.6 Billion in Taxes for Guns They Already Own

by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart:

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own. The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to a pay a collective $3.6 billion in taxes, if this policy were enacted into legislation.

More Californians Own Guns than Ever Before

by Stephen Gutowski, Free Beacon:

Study: First-time owners make up 40 percent of pandemic gun buyers

According to a new study, Californians have bought guns at a record pace, many for the first time, despite recent gun-store shutdowns.

The study, which a group of researchers at the University of California released in October, found that pandemic-caused uncertainty has led to increased demand for firearms in the deep blue state.

First-time owners accounted for 47,000 of the 110,000 people who bought a gun during the onset of the pandemic, the study concluded.

Ammo Shortage Expected to Last into 2021


by James Murphy, The New American:

Ammunition manufacturers in the United States are struggling mightily to keep up with increased demand. The National Rifle Association’s news outlet, Shooting Illustrated, reports that the “current ammunition shortage may continue at least until 2021 — perhaps longer.”

Uncertain times in 2020 have driven an increased desire to own guns and, hence, the ammunition needed for those weapons. Increased gun and ammunition sales were initially fueled by uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the government imposed lockdowns that began in March. The ongoing civil unrest precipitated by the death of Minneapolis criminal George Floyd in police custody in May only exacerbated the situation.

Report: Gun Sales Surge 80 Percent in Seven Swing States

by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart:

Gun sales have been rising nationwide for months but are specifically up in seven swing states as the November 3, 2020, election approaches.

Fox News reports the Cook Political Report lists “Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as toss-ups” in the coming election. They also indicate New Hampshire and North Carolina can be considered toss-ups too.


by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Look at any dictator of the 20th century, they were all obsessed with population control and reproductive issues. Adolf Hitler wanted to create a master race of pure blooded Aryans, even though he himself was not even German with Jewish blood on his mother’s side. Oops. Remember Communist China’s murderous ‘One Child Policy’ that only allowed you to have one child if it was a male? Female babies were left on the windowsill to die, they were not part of the agenda. Funny how Liberal feminists never talk about that, eh?
