“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.

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:

John Lott
Author of The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies

Nelson Lund
Professor, Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University

David Clarke, Jr.
Sheriff, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin

The Washington Post has the story here.

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.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has had enough of the so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement.  Clarke has called the movement “a political construct that has nothing to do with black lives.” Following a weekend in Milwaukee that saw Black Lives Matter extremists, along with anarchists, burn down businesses and attack innocent bystanders, Sheriff Clarke was interviewed on NRA News’ Frontlines, hosted by Lt. Col Oliver North. Speaking about Black Lives Matter, Clarke asserts, “It’s a dangerous, hateful, destructive ideology,” and that they are “purveyors of hate toward American police officers.” He also takes on the political correct portrayal of the extremist ideology as some type of new civil rights movement: “How did we fall this fast? From Rosa Parks to Mike Brown.” The Milwaukee County Sheriff also points out that Brown, along with Eric Garner and Freddie Gray, “are criminals who engaged in behavior that contributed to what happened to them.”
