FIRE: Blinn College student Nicole Sanders filed a First Amendment lawsuit against the public institution near Houston after being told by an administrator last February that she would need “special permission” to display a gun rights sign and collect signatures for her student group on campus.

Washington Times: Former NRA President David Keene writes, "Gun control advocates have convinced themselves that few Americans really care deeply about the Second Amendment or have been conned by the NRA, which has, in turn, convinced politicians that it speaks for millions of Americans who not only care, but will vote for or against candidates based on their Second Amendment record."
As president of the National Rifle Association during the days following the tragic school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, I was on the front lines defending Second Amendment rights against President Barack Obama, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a network of gun control advocates who used that tragedy to promote a gun control agenda that, had it been in place on Dec. 14, 2012, would not have prevented the tragedy.

NRA-ILA: The House of Representatives has approved Congressman Mike D. Rogers’ amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, which — if accepted in the Senate — could make it possible for Americans who meet stringent requirements to purchase a military surplus handgun from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Of course, there’s a hitch, because if there’s one thing that gun control supporters dislike more than semi-automatic rifles like the M-1s the CMP sells, its handguns!

Washington Times: Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) says, “The NRA is one of the rare national advocacy organizations that says what it means, and then backs it up with results.” That’s just one of the many respects Tillis paid the NRA in an op-ed published Wednesday. Here’s his piece on what the NRA – and you, its members – do for Second Amendment rights in America.
As a freedom-lover and avid outdoorsman, I understand the importance of protecting the Second Amendment, which has been under attack by liberal special interest groups funded by elitist billionaires. The number-one defender of the Second Amendment rights is the National Rifle Association. The NRA works tirelessly to elect pro-Second Amendment candidates, and it fights fearlessly to win tough public policy battles and preserve those rights.

The Hill: A House Democrat has introduced legislation that would require sellers to obtain a background check for all guns sold at gun shows. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday reintroduced the Gun Show Loophole Closing Act, a bill long championed by former Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.).
The House bill would require gun show operators to register with the attorney general.

Canada National Post: Gun owners across Canada are starting to hoard bullets over fears of a diminishing supply of .22-caliber ammunition from the United States. Most of Canada’s ammunition comes from the U.S., a market that has nearly 100 million gun owners clamoring for bullets.

NRA-ILA: The ceaseless torrent of anti-gun commentary from the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC and other “mainstream” media outlets apparently isn’t enough for billionaire firearm prohibitionist Michael Bloomberg. Now the ex-mayor of New York is developing a “news operation” to work alongside his Everytown for Gun Safety organization in furtherance of his megalomaniacal gun control agenda.

The Washington Times: The NRA is planning a major voter-outreach program for the 2016 presidential election, buoyed by its success in targeted elections last year and hoping to capitalize on Americans’ growing belief that gun ownership will make them safer as fear of crime rises, its chief lobbyist says. “As people learn more, and take a more serious approach toward their own security and the failure of the criminal justice system, they see these rare but horrific crimes. Whether you support or hate the Second Amendment, everyone wants something done,” said the NRA's Chris W. Cox.
