"Toilet Paper Effect": Americans Scramble For Ammo Amid Shortage

It is certainly a sign of the times. In 2020, the FBI processed a record 39.7 million firearm background checks, the most recorded since the agency began keeping tabs in 1998. On top of that, checks exclusively related to the sale of firearms also reached a record high last year, totaling 21 million, according to firearm trade organization National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

The gun and ammo craze, which is being pinned on the COVID-19 crisis, the violent rioting that gripped major cities in recent months, and the new Biden administration, has anyone looking to get their hands on ammunition going to extraordinary lengths as a nation wide shortage strikes the market.

NY judge rules that state's lawsuit to dissolve the NRA can go ahead six days after it filed for bankruptcy and announced a move to Texas

A New York judge on Thursday ruled that the state's lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association can go ahead.

Judge Joel Cohen's decision will allow New York Attorney General Letitia James' lawsuit to move ahead in state court in Manhattan, rather than dismissing it on technical grounds or moving it to federal court, as the NRA's lawyers desired.

James' lawsuit, filed last August, seeks the NRA's dissolution under state nonprofit law over claims that top executives illegally diverted tens of millions of dollars for trips, no-show contracts and other expenditures.

The Gun Rights Movement is Not Violent

Political Violence goes against the heart of the gun rights movement. The Second Amendment protects gun rights in order to provide for defense. The gun community has denounced violence tied to protests throughout 2020, as we also condemn the violence and destruction of property at the US Capitol in January 6th without equivocation.

House Dems Couldn’t Wait To Take Shots At The Second Amendment

The 117th Congress wasn’t in session a whole day before the Democrats fired their first volley against the Second Amendment. The House has seven new gun control bills to consider from three representatives, all filed on the first full day of business. While there have not yet been any introduced to the Senate, with a Democrat trifecta in the Swamp, it seems a safe bet the issue will make it to the upper chamber sooner rather than later.

Gunning for Patriots

“Out of my cold, dead hands!” you’re shouting.

But consider: thanks to registration, bureaucrats know who holds which guns and how many. So they needn’t “send cops or troops door-to-door to take them. No, first they’ll send out letters saying they know what you have, and that you have to turn it over by a given deadline or face a penalty,” such as “asset freezes. Imagine not being able to get any money out of your bank account or from your credit cards, because your assets are frozen. … The other thing they’ll do is take your children. Do you think Child Protective Services is going to let your children live in a house with potentially dangerous firearms?”

Where Things Stand At The Federal Level

There is no sugar-coating it: Second Amendment supporters are in a tough spot at the federal level. The fact of the matter is that anti-Second Amendment extremists have taken the Presidency and have very narrow margins in the House and Senate. This is not an impossible situation, but Second Amendment supporters should be under no illusions about the difficult fights in the next four years.

Biden Vows to Defeat America’s Oldest and Largest Civil Rights Group

If Joe Biden were reading the newspapers – or better yet, NRA-ILA’s own Grassroots Alert – he would know that a viewpoint uniting an especially large and diverse group of Americans in 2020 was the necessity of owning a firearm for personal protection. Last year was the busiest ever for the national background check system used to process retail firearms transactions. Americans, by all accounts, voted in record numbers with their feet and their pocketbooks in favor of their Second Amendment rights as the country struggled through one calamity after another.

Arizona GOP files ‘2nd Amendment Sanctuary’ bill to ban state aid in federal anti-gun activity

A handful of Arizona Republicans are behind a push to make their state the fifth to keep state resources from assisting in any federal activity they consider contrary to the Second Amendment.

State Rep. Leo Biasiucci, R-Lake Havasu City, filed the Second Amendment Firearm Freedoms Act on Jan. 14. Like other measures, it would ban the use of local resources from enforcing any federal law or executive rule that could be seen as running afoul the constitutional right to bear arms.

“This state and all political subdivisions of this state are prohibited from using any personnel or financial resourced to enforce, administer, or cooperate with any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the United States government that violates Amendment II of the Constitution of the United States,” the bill reads.

Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, and Wyoming have passed similar measures.

Spiritual advisor to Barack Obama and George W. Bush sentenced to 6 years for multi-million dollar China bonds fraud

The spiritual advisor for both Barack Obama and George W. Bush during their time as President has been sentenced to six years for his role in a multi-million dollar investment fraud scheme.

Kirbyjon H. Caldwell, 67, was sentenced by US District Judge S. Maurice Hicks on Wednesday in Shreveport, Louisiana where he and his co-defendant, Gregory Alan Smith, were indicted in 2018.

Caldwell was formerly the Senior Pastor of Windsor Village United Methodist Church, a mega-church in his native Houston, Texas, which has around 14,000 members, the Associated Press reported.
According to the New York Times, he spoke at the 2000 Republican National Convention, delivered the benediction at Bush's 2005 inauguration, and officiated his daughter Jenna's wedding in 2008.

NRA declares bankruptcy, plans to incorporate in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas — The National Rifle Association announced Friday it has filed for bankruptcy protection and will seek to incorporate the nation’s most politically influential gun-rights group in Texas instead of New York.

The announcement came months after New York’s attorney general sued the organization over claims that top executives illegally diverted tens of millions of dollars for lavish personal trips, no-show contracts for associates and other questionable expenditures.

The coronavirus pandemic has also upended the NRA, which last year laid off dozens of employees. The group canceled its national convention and scuttled fundraising. The NRA's bankruptcy filing listed between $100 million and $500 million in assets and between $100 million and $500 million in liabilities. Still, the NRA claimed in announcing the move that the organization was “in its strongest financial condition in years.”

FBI planning fake false flag “armed protests” that will be blamed on conservatives and used to go after gun rights?

The mainstream media is reporting the latest FBI bulletin as if it was “intelligence.” However, it is obvious, based on the FBI’s history of staging false flag events, that this is not so much intelligence as it is a warning and a threat about what is coming. -- If the FBI is successful in pulling off the second round of false flags this upcoming week, you can be sure it will be the final death blow to American’s constitutional rights. There is simply no more room for freedom when these “domestic terrorists” are roaming around threatening everyone, is how the narrative will surely go.

He's Coming For Our Guns: Biden's Promise To 'Defeat The NRA' Is Part Of His Transformation Of America

President-elect Joe Biden on Friday pledged to “defeat the NRA,” or the National Rifle Association, after being sworn into office.

Biden’s official Twitter account responded to former Rep. Gabby Gifford (D-Ariz.), who was one of 14 people shot by Jared Lee Loughner in Tucson in 2011. Giffords had described how her life and community “changed forever.”

“But the attack did not break me—or the people I represented in Congress. We came together, turned pain into purpose, and found hope in each other,” she said, adding that she proceeds to work to “achieve a safer America.”

One Circus Is Over as the Next Begins: Hence, Unabated Tyranny Will Continue

It is always a worthless endeavor to speak of politics as anything other than a corrupt system meant to fool the people into believing that they have some sort of control over governmental policies, when just the opposite is the case. Government by design is structured as a top down system of class, with the common people always being at the bottom of the hierarchy. There are many ways for the powerful to advance the notion of popular inclusion simply by using deceitful tactics in order present a façade of ‘equality,’ while controlling the masses through fear, dependence, propaganda, and division. All of these are in play simultaneously in this current politically motivated virus fraud that is being used to advance the technocratic takeover of humanity. While this is apparent and undeniable, very few are able to grasp the reality of this situation, as their minds remain clouded in a haze of ignorance, obedience, and irrational madness.

Firearms Policy Coalition Statement on Incoming Biden Administration

In the coming months and years, the attacks on our fundamental rights and liberty will likely be unprecedented, relentless, and lawless. From expanding categories of prohibited persons and “red flag” laws to “universal background checks,” bans on free speech and ‘3D’ printing technology, encryption bans, deplatforming, “Operation Choke Point” and banking restrictions, new prohibitions and restrictions on firearms, magazines, ammunition, and other constitutionally protected arms, expansion of the irrational National Firearms Act, laws to incarcerate thousands more people every year, and, sadly, much, much more.

Your Weapon Is Only Tool to Survive: The Tactics of a Gunfight After SHTF

Looking around I couldn’t find an important piece of information – how one should fight in a SHTF situation. I think this is an important topic to cover because it has several special circumstances that need to be considered.

Ammo will need to be conserved – I don’t care how many rounds you have saved up, it won’t be enough and the long-term of a complete collapse of society (potentially 40+ years) means that from the get go every single shot will be precious.

Due to the fact that it is almost a certainty that combatants will be intensely familiar with the area and possibly have been residing for a long period of time it rather changes the mechanics of combat.

Due to limited manpower and the fact that any attrition will be felt heavily, patrols, night combat, and outposts will be nigh impossible to field with regularity.

Chicago armed robbery thwarted as gun owner with concealed-carry permit kills suspect: report

A gun owner with a concealed-carry permit shot and killed an armed robbery suspect at a Chicago cell phone store on Saturday night, according to police.

It was not immediately clear whether the 29-year-old gun owner was the business owner, an employee or a customer, FOX 32 of Chicago reported.

The gun owner shot the armed suspect at least two times in the 7 p.m. incident, police told the station. The suspect was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and was later pronounced dead, FOX 32 reported.

Long considered anti-gun, the agency has provoked alarm with Second Amendment advocates due to the agency’s recent targeting of gunmakers, including a raid this month on a producer of so-called "ghost guns" and this week’s targeting of AR-15-style pistols.

With President-elect Joe Biden poised to unleash new gun control measures, fears are heightened that ATF will be the tip of the spear.

Kamala Harris is calling for 'commonsense' gun control. She means confiscation

Kamala Harris marked the eighth anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting earlier this week by calling for “commonsense” gun control. But she already told us what commonsense measures she supports, chief among them is confiscation.

Before being selected as Joe Biden's running mate, Harris tried to stake out the furthest left-wing positions in the Democratic primary on a number of issues. This was most evident on gun control, where she praised Eric Swalwell’s “mandatory buybacks” during a Democratic debate. She liked the idea so much that she eventually adopted it as her own.

Joe Biden has taken on the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the national stage and won – twice. In 1993, he shepherded through Congress the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established the background check system that has since kept more than 3 million firearms out of dangerous hands. In 1994, Biden – along with Senator Dianne Feinstein – secured the passage of 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again.

Pro-Trump Lawyer Lin Wood Urges Supporters to Stock Up on '2nd Amendment Supplies'

Lin Wood, a supporter of President Donald Trump who has also been filing lawsuits on Trump's behalf to overturn the election's results, tweeted on Monday that Trump supporters should stock up on "2nd Amendment supplies," a reference to firearms and ammunition. Wood's tweet seemed to predict coming social unrest over the Electoral College casting its ballots to seat President-elect Joe Biden in the White House.

"Better to be safe than sorry," Woods wrote in his tweet. "Make sure you have PLENTY of water, food, flashlights & batteries, candles, radio, 2nd Amendment supplies, & a plan to meet with leaders of your communities. Remember we only have 1 President at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden."

The supplies Woods listed are commonly associated with preparing for civil unrest or disasters in which people's utilities, electricity and access to survival essentials are disrupted.

According to the December 10 report from the New York Times, Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun organization Everytown for Gun Safety is pushing Joe Biden to enact a raft of gun control by executive fiat. As much as Everytown and their would-be autocrat benefactor might wish, the U.S. Presidency is not a dictatorship.

The couple faces felony charges for unlawful use of weapons and tampering with physical evidence. They have pled not guilty.

Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to “make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.”

She added that “there's really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action.”

He added, "You have the lower courts that feature a large number of Trump-appointed judges. Many of those judges seem likely to support strong gun rights and weaken gun control. And the Supreme Court's conservative majority has been strengthened. And Amy Coney Barrett, in particular, has taken a strong stand on Second Amendment issues as a lower court judge."

Democrats in Control Of Government & Unchecked?

For gun owners, a Biden Harris administration, with a 50/50 Senate split, would mean Democrats would have free rein on judicial appointments, and would very probably be able to pass some significant gun control legislation – especially if they follow through on their threat to do away with the filibuster, the same way they did away with holds on judicial nominees. Without the filibuster there to force Democrats to get a 60-vote majority for passage of controversial bills, their legislative agenda would almost certainly include bans on so-called “assault weapons,” and “high-capacity” magazines, and possibly include Australian-style “mandatory buy-backs” of those items.

This is all too chilling to Canadian gun owners. It’s also a cautionary tale for American gun owners to not take their Second Amendment for granted. The magnitude of firearm ownership in America dwarfs that of Canada. The costs and bureaucracy would dwarf the billions Canada is expected to pay. -- The actions President-elect Biden proposed aren’t really any different than what Canada is witnessing now. Here, though, it is unconstitutional.

Biden wants a huge new tax on gun owners

Joe Biden’s gun policy platform offers support for almost all conceivable forms of government restrictions on the Second Amendment. This includes bans and restrictions on sales, expansion of registration and background checks, expansion of buyback programs and gun-grabbing statutes, and the closing of all sorts of “loopholes.”

‘Safety’ Tips from Gun Prohibitionists Have Hidden Agenda

The bottom line, the gun-grabbers demand government edicts to lock up your safety, taking the decision away from you. And to lock your ammunition up separately. That way, should you ever need to access your gun to defend against an intruder, no doubt he will be impressed with how thorough you are about mandatory “safety.” The problem, of course, is that it adds a couple of time-consuming steps that would make Joe Biden’s recommendations to either fire your shotgun blindly off the balcony or through your front door problematic.

Biden's Gun Control Plan Would Cost Gun Owners $34 Billion In Taxes

Under Joe Biden’s proposed gun control plan, American gun owners would cough up tens of billions dollars in taxes as millions of rifles and magazines now in their possession would be subject to a tax under the National Firearms Act.

The center piece of Biden’s gun plan is to place a ban on the manufacture and sale of “assault weapons,” while bringing the regulation of possession of such firearms under the 1934 National Firearms Act.

Currently, the NFA of 1934 applies to fully automatics firearms, silencers and short-barreled rifles. But Biden would drag “assault weapons”, meaning semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns (think the AR-15) along with “high capacity magazines”, which have generally been understood to be magazines that carry more than 10 rounds, under the act.

Police Department Stops Accepting Firearm Permit Applications Due To COVID-19

The Nantucket Police Department in Massachusetts announced Wednesday that its officers would indefinitely halt new weapons permit applications due to heightened risk of coronavirus spread.

The department initially announced the decision on Twitter, writing that all fingerprint services were to be suspended, but the post was removed shortly after. The law enforcement body said the reason for its decision was that the employees who fielded the applications expressed “concern that they could not safely do their jobs,” according to a press release.

Google Searches For 'Reloading Ammo' Explode Amid Nationwide Shortage 

Americans are panic searching again. This time it's not where to buy toilet paper online, but instead learning more about reloading ammunition as the virus pandemic and social unrest has sparked shortages of ammo and guns.

Ever since the first round of virus lockdowns that began in March, ammunition prices have surged because of unprecedented demand. Some of the hardest bullets to find this past summer, that is, if one wanted to purchase bulk, as we noted in April and August (see: here & here), was 9mm.

And, of course, a shortage and skyrocketing costs for factory-loaded ammunition forced many Americans to investigate alternative options in panic hoarding bullets.

As shown below, an eruption in US internet searches for "9mm Reloading" can be seen.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), founded in 1961, reported Monday there are an estimated 434 million firearms in private possession in the United States of America.

Firearms purchases have strongly surged in the past year, mostly because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also because of political uncertainties, like the possibility of a very liberal incoming administration.

Another Poll Shows Gun Control Misread American Resolve

If polls are to be trusted any longer, there’s one out from Gallup that shows gun control zealots aren’t paying attention to America’s growing distaste for gun control. -- Americans want less gun control laws now than they did in 2016 when Hillary Clinton campaigned and lost on a platform of enacting bans on modern sporting rifles and clamping down on Second Amendment rights. American support for stricter gun control laws slipped seven percent in just one year while firearm sales are breaking records and rioting and looting is wreaking havoc in American cities as gun control politicians called for, and actually did, defund the police. Forty-three percent of Americans want fewer gun control laws or for them to remain the same, according to the poll.

Social Elites Call for Dangerous Gun Data Changes

These changes will not reduce crime nor increase public safety, and they certainly do not affect public health. They will, however, have devastating impacts on individual freedoms and the Second Amendment.
