NRA-ILA: For weeks, we have been reporting on how a long-dormant State Department rule change is suddenly being enforced to the detriment of Americans trying to travel lawfully overseas with firearms.
For weeks, we have been reporting on how a long-dormant State Department rule change is suddenly being enforced to the detriment of Americans trying to travel lawfully overseas with firearms. In brief, exports of rifles and handguns generally require a license from the State Department. Nevertheless, an exemption has long applied for U.S. persons who temporarily export up to three firearms and 1,000 rounds of ammunition. This allows hunters, spor...

Concealed Nation: Three suspects broke into a women’s Alabama home in the early morning hours, where one of them, a 17-year-old, held the woman at gunpoint and raped her while the other two raided the house. The 17-year-old then proceeded to a neighbor's house to demand money ... there, an armed citizen shot and killed him.

Breitbart: On April 13, The Daily Beast (TDB) reacted to the NRA’s Nashville convention by accusing Wayne LaPierre of “lying” in telling NRA members that Obama and the Democrats want to take guns away. According to TDB, “No one in the Obama administration or any Democrat administration has ever tried to take law-abiding citizens’ guns away.” Moreover, TDB said, Obama “can’t” take guns, even if he wanted to, because the Supreme Court decided there is an individual right to keep and bear arms in 2008.

America's 1st Freedom Daily: The old saying, “Too slow to run; too old to take a beating,” likely wasn’t coined by a 20-something martial arts expert. Older Americans are aware that they are more prone to being targeted by those who wish to make them a victim. Fortunately, many are also quite capable of taking care of themselves when the chips are down, as these five stories from last year show.

USA Today: The national news media had a sloppy week leading up to the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville, TN. The New York Times had editorialized that the NRA was a bunch of hypocrites because although attendees with gun permits were allowed to carry guns on the convention floor, those guns were actually neutered by having the firing pins removed. A damning assertion of hypocrisy — except that it wasn't even close to true.
When newsrooms run with stories too good to be true, they should diversify their ranks.
