Democrats want gun manufacturing to be risky business 

Congressional Democrats are attempting to chill 2nd Amendment rights with the introduction of legislation that would hold firearm makers responsible if their products are used to commit crimes.

The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act would allow victims of gun crimes to sue gun manufacturers and dealers for damages, rolling back long-standing federal protections against such lawsuits via the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.  Read more


The Second Amendment Foundation announced that Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) has become part of the SAF family, bringing together two stalwart gun rights organizations under one banner.  

“We’re both delighted and proud to announce this merger,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “JPFO was founded 25 years ago by the late Aaron Zelman, and it has become a strong voice in defense of the Second Amendment. I'm personally confident that bringing JPFO into the SAF extended family will benefit firearms owners at many levels.”     Read more

Obama`s war on guns could increase firearm bloodshed

President Barack Obama on Tuesday visited his hometown of Chicago to talk gun control. And in lamenting that gun crime is out of control in a city with some of the nation's toughest gun controls, the president hinted at coming measures to punish lawful gun owners for the actions of criminals.

Obama called on law enforcement agencies throughout the nation to join him in campaigning for “common-sense” gun reform in a speech to the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Read more

Attorneys File Notice Of Appeal In Challenge To Seattle Gun Tax

Attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation, National Rifle Association and National Shooting Sports Foundation filed notice of appeal in their challenge to the City of Seattle's so-called “gun violence tax.”

A King County Superior Court ruling in late December allowed the gun tax to stand, although Judge Palmer Robinson noted in her ruling that the city's argument that their ordinance does not impose a criminal penalty did not pass muster.

SAF, NRA and NSSF filed this lawsuit last summer, along with two Seattle gun stores and two private citizens. The case is known as Watson et.al. v. City of Seattle (Case No. 15-2-20613-3 SEA). Read more

Italian Mayor Has Right Response To Prison Releases, Sanctuary Laws  

Noting public frustration over the Senate Democrats` blocking of legislation to crack down on sanctuary cities and their renewed push for new gun control laws, plus the announced plan to release thousands of prison inmates early, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today that an Italian mayor faced with rising crime in his region may have the right plan to alleviate public concerns.

“Mayor Gianluca Buonanno of Borgosesia in Piedmont in northern Italy has offered 250 Euros apiece to citizens to help them pay for a gun,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This is no tongue-in-cheek joke, either. The mayor has made that offer after accusing the Italian government of failing to protect honest citizens with laws that seem soft on bad guys.” Read more
