Trump Administration’s Proposed Rulemakings a Win-Win for America's Firearms Industry, National Security
On Thursday, the Trump Administration published two rulemakings designed to enhance the competitiveness of American companies in the firearms and ammunition sectors, remove burdens for small businesses, and modernize export controls for the post-Cold War era.  The moves will benefit both the domestic firearms industry and improve national security. The publication of the proposals also triggered a 45-day comment period during which members of the public can provide feedback on the plans and share their own experiences with the underlying regulations.

West Coast Plutocrats Target Washington State Gun Owners… Again (Initiative 1639)
Washington State’s would-be oligarchs are attempting to buy Evergreen Staters’ rights again. Four years after West Coast elites dumped $10 million into the campaign for Initiative 594, which criminalized the private transfer of firearms, some of the same plutocrats are spending big bucks to back I-1639, an even more restrictive anti-gun ballot measure.

Bloomberg Schools Us on Honesty and Truth

Michael Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor turned gun-control bankroller billionaire, recently delivered the commencement address at Rice University in Texas.

Gun Rights Were Expanded: Once Again, No Problems
As readers of our legislative alerts are only too aware, whenever NRA efforts to create more freedoms for law-abiding gun owners, anti-gun lawmakers and activists immediately begin repeating their doom-and-gloom mantra that the streets will run red with the blood of innocents, or some other outrageous claim.  As readers are also aware, however, the predicted carnage or other negative impacts simply fail to materialize. Most frequently, the sky-is-falling nonsense erupts around the right to carry firearms for personal protection.

Anti-gun Political Correctness Imperils Monument to Medal of Honor Recipient
As difficult as it may seem, anti-gun tactics have reached a pathetic new low. We regret to report that some on the anti-gun left, in their fanatical intolerance of all things firearms, now find it acceptable to attack monuments honoring World War II Medal of Honor recipients.

Poll from Bloomberg-Bankrolled School Misleads on Support for Gun Control
Billionaire gun control benefactor Michael Bloomberg has paid a great deal of money to have is name grace Johns Hopkins University’s School of Public Health. Back in 2001, when the university announced that they were changing the name of the institution to the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Bloomberg had already given his alma mater more than $100 million. By 2013, Bloomberg had given more than $1 billion to Johns Hopkins. It’s curious then that both the Washington Post and Bloomberg.com have failed to give the aspiring oligarch his due credit for a new poll purporting to show a public consensus in favor of gun control.

April 2018 NICS Report
We haven’t reported on the FBI NICS background check numbers for some time, but recent numbers show a sharp increase in checks. April 2018 was the busiest April ever (since NICS began in November 1998). March was the busiest March ever. February was the second-busiest February. More than 2.2 million background checks were conducted through NICS last month, and nearly 2.8 million were run the previous month.

There have been 9,354,635 total NICS checks run through April; only 2016 had more checks run in the first four months of the year. The third busiest January-April was in 2017.
