Red Flag Orders Enable Political Abuse

So-called “Red Flag” orders, or Emergency Risk Protection Orders, are designed to empower the government to confiscate Americans’ firearms without due process of law . Aside from allowing run-of-the-mill malicious actors to indulge personal grudges against law-abiding gun owners, in the current politically-charged environment these laws enable the government to target those with First Amendment-...

NEWTOWN, Conn. — NSSF®, the firearm industry trade association, updated the industry estimate of Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs) in circulation in the United States to 24,446,000 since 1990.

“Assault Weapon”— The All Purpose Pejorative

“Assault weapon” is a meaningless and politically elastic term. Demonstrating that the agenda drives the definition, President Biden’s nominees to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) both refused to commit to any intelligible definition. David Chipman, Biden’s initial and unsuccessful choice for ATF director, famously flubbed a straightforward request to define an “...

Farcical “Assault Weapons” Ban Mark-up Showed Contempt for Facts, Law, and Dignity

A recent Gallup poll asked Americans about their level of trust in various institutions. Of the 16 options, the one respondents identified as LEAST trustworthy – with only 7% expressing a “Great deal” or “Quite a lot” of confidence in it – was Congress. This was just below television news (at 11%) but also below such things as big business, large technology companies, banks, and small business...

95% of BFA PAC Endorsed Candidates Win Primary Election on Aug. 2

It's been an exhausting and confusing election year so far. We've had two Primary Elections, and still have the November General Election to go. In yesterday's #2 Primary, 10 out of 10 BFA PAC Senate endorsees won, and 48 out of 51 House endorsees won. To be fair, not every candidate had challengers.
