Beginning last year, NRA-ILA has been keeping readers up to date with an ongoing effort by the Mexican government and domestic gun control supporters to attack the American firearms industry.

(No, Not THAT Border) There seems to be some controversy brewing near our border, but not the one you might be thinking about.

There’s a big gap between what the progressive elite preaches as their “transformative vision of public safety” for you and me, and what many of them see as appropriate for their special selves.

The guide, reproduced in

Today it’s often difficult to determine when the mainstream media is being deliberately deceptive or is just incompetent. Whatever the case may be, they are routinely wrong. Take for instance a recent ABC News headline reporting that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ (ATF) bump-stock ban: Supreme Court

A recent study by the Crime Prevention Research Center underscored how easily public opinion polling can be used to distort, rather than illuminate, peoples’ true feelings on gun control. Policy-makers should take note. Sound policy requires a thoughtful and sophisticated understanding of facts and evidence, not just the shifting whims of public perception.  Emotionalism, on

From Canada last week came a heartwarming story of how certain Canadian jurisdictions are responding to the central government’s plea to help it implement its draconian and legally-dubious firearms confiscation scheme.

For years now, leftist politicians across America have promoted a pro-criminal agenda that included gun control initiatives marketed as “public safety” measures, no-bail and other criminal law reforms, and “depolicing” communities.
