“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Does the Second Amendment mean something different today than it did when our great nation was born? In the premiere episode of The DL, “The Truth About the Second Amendment,” Dana Loesch introduces her new NRATV series and is joined by NRA personalities and gun rights advocates to examine the enduring and fundamental meaning of the Second Amendment, despite what you might hear from the mainstream media.
President Trump has kept his promise to appoint a judge to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court that occurred due to the sudden death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016. He chose Judge Neil Gorsuch, who current sits on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and according to Independence Institute Research Director Dave Kopel, he has a good record on Second Amendment related cases. From NRA America’s First Freedom:
“The Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to own firearms and may not be infringed lightly.” So wrote U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch in United States v. Miguel Games-Perez. That case demonstrates why Judge Gorsuch is a worthy successor to Justice Antonin Scalia.
Yesterday, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox appeared on NRATV to talk about the nomination.
And something that I don’t remember ever seeing, is the NRA sitting beside the President of the United States in a White House meeting. Yesterday, Wayne LaPierre joined representatives from Concerned Women for America, American Values, Susan B Anthony List , National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Tax Reform, Federalist Society, Leadership Institute, National Right to Life, and the Evangelical Advisory Council, to talk about advancing the nomination as fast as possible.
Gun owners should contact their U.S. Senator and urge them to confirm Judge Gorsuch.
Wayne LaPierre has just released a new video message on NRATV titled, “NRA: Donald Trump’s Strongest Ally.” In it, the NRA Executive Vice President and CEO discusses how gun owners and patriots defied the media and their elitists friends to send Donald J. Trump to the White House. “This election was a grassroots rejection of the elite class that wants to rule America. And the only organization that has fought that fight without apology is the National Rifle Association of America,” LaPierre says. He also notes that “But the time for celebration is over. Our moment to make history begins now … Already, the forces that conspired to keep Donald Trump out of the White House are coming together to sabotage his administration.”
LaPierre then calls upon “the tens of millions of patriots all over this country who stood by our side in defense of Donald Trump—to stand by our side once more.” LaPierre states that “Our time is now,” and asks freedom loving Americans to stand with the NRA to help Donald J. Trump “put a pro-2nd Amendment majority on the Supreme Court,” among other things. “Together, we will truly make America great again,” LaPierre says. Supporters are asked to share the video using #OurTimeisNow.
Yesterday, Tom Gresham spoke with NRANews Cam and Company host Cam Edwards about what drove gun owners to the polls this year to cast a vote for Donald Trump. Gresham is the host of “Gun Talk,” the only nationally syndicated radio talk show about firearms, the shooting sports and gun rights. He talked about the reasons why Americans voted to make Donald Trump the next president, saying they were sick of being ignored, mocked and called names – all because they don’t not agree with the left. The “deplorables,” as Hillary Clinton called them, live in small towns, are gun owners, go to church and work hard to pay their bills. Gresham described several people he knows who had not voted in the past three elections, but they voted this time. With the collapse of gun control as an electable issue, Tom explained that there is no gun control movement. There is just Michael Bloomberg and his money. The below clip originally aired on Cam and Company on 12/12/16.
That is the title of a forum that was held at the Heritage Foundation yesterday. With the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia, author of the majority opinion in the landmark Second Amendment case, District of Columbia v. Heller, appears to be more in danger than ever. Hillary Clinton has said more than once that the Court got it wrong and she will appoint a justice that will assist in overturning it. Three distinguished individuals discussed whether gun control measures are effective at preventing violence or do they end up doing more harm than good as well as whether gun control restrictions constitutional. The three panelists were:
Author of The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies
Professor, Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University
David Clarke, Jr.
Sheriff, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin

Tom Gresham predicted near the end of his Sunday “After Show” podcast that if Hillary wins, you won’t be able to find an AR-15 on the shelf. Look’s like this gun shop is trying to get a jump on the sales.
You can make sure that doesn’t happen though – vote on November 8th, and #GunVote.
