|The fight to curb overreaching regulation by the Obama administration is not over and it certainly has not disappeared from our radar. In fact, we have been in regular contact with our Federal legislators, the NSSF and the NRA.
We are happy to report that our collective efforts are drawing the attention of prominent U.S. Senators. Just yesterday (9/6/2016), our very own Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) joined Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR), Steve Daines (R-MT), and James Inhofe (R-OK) in penning a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry denouncing the DDTC’s directive and demanding that they reconsider this issue. A news article about the letter can be found here.
We vow to keep the pressure on until changes are made. That said, the industry still needs your help! Below is the latest call to action issued by the NSSF. It includes verbiage to help you articulate your point. Feel free to copy and paste if you’re using email to communicate with your legislators.
NSSF Call to Action
Call your U.S. Representative at 202-225-3121 and U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell Congress to denounce the DDTC’s action and demand reconsideration.
Tell Congress to transfer the export licensing of commercial and sporting firearms and ammunition products from the State Department to the Department of Commerce. The Commerce Department which already licenses the export of shotguns and shot shells does not require manufacturers and gunsmiths to register and pay an outrageous $2,250 annual fee.
The Obama administration was supposed to transfer export licensing of guns and ammunition to Commerce as part of its overall “Export Control Reform” initiative but because of its anti-gun agenda, they have refused to move our products. The administration’s own ECR Tracker shows how our products (Categories I – III) have been singled out. Not only has the Obama administration refused to transfer export licensing to the Commerce Department, they now want gunsmiths to pay an annual $2,250 registration fee for simply mounting new sights to improve accuracy on a hunting rifle!

We appreciate your help and, as always, we stand united with you.
What follows is one of the best explanations about the current political status here in these not so United States. Please read the whole article.
The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights does not “grant” Americans the right to armed self-defense, it simply recognizes and affirms this God-given human right. The Constitution, including the Bill or Rights, is a very succinct document that was written in plain English intended to be fully understandable by ordinary citizens, requiring no interpretation by judges. Article III of the Constitution discusses the responsibilities, powers and limitations of the Judiciary, including the Supreme Court.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the Supreme Court is a super-legislature authorized to amend the Bill of Rights by a simple majority vote among its nine lifetime-appointed justices. In fact, Article III Section 2 explicitly grants to Congress the power to regulate which cases the Supreme Court may adjudicate at all. However, in the current political climate, with a toothless Congress abdicating its power to the Executive and Judicial branches, it is unlikely that the Supreme Court will be reined in and confined within its Constitutional limits.
My scenario for a second American civil war involves a Hillary Clinton victory in November 2016, followed in 2017 by the appointment of a Supreme Court justice politically to the left of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The Second Amendment will then be gutted using a specious argument such as that the militia has “evolved” into the modern National Guard, meaning that there is no longer a right for private citizens to individually keep or bear arms. Liberal politicians and the collaborating liberal mainstream media will be in full-throated agreement with this false interpretation of the Second Amendment.
Leave it to a NAVY SEAL to explain it so well!

If you believe you’re oppressed, but you vote for bigger government, then you don’t deserve any sympathy whatsoever. You’re putting your own chains on you.
If you’re dissatisfied with how social security has been managed by the politicians you elected to office, but you expect your kids to fix it for you, then you’re handing the problem you perpetuated to your children.
If, on one hand, you think electing a single person can fix all of this but on the other you say you believe in the country as founded, then it seems you might not understand that the country as founded cast off the notion of a king.
Government is never the solution. It won’t fix “oppression.” It creates oppression.
It won’t fix social security. The only way to “fix” social security is to take more money from your children.
Allowing the consolidation of power to a single person won’t fix anything. It will invite tyranny because no one should be trusted with that much power.
Government is never the solution.
While I really am not any sort of big fan of Donald Trump, there is no way in hell that I could ever support “The Potty Mouth” What follows is a short film that exposes her, yet again, for what she is, as well as is not.
Her ongoing disrespect for the military and the deadly consequences from that, her blatant misandry, her utter disrespect for The Bill of Rights (It’s not just the Second Amendment), her support of terrorists, and obvious racism are disgusting…
Should HRC become POTUS this nation will be ripped asunder in a very bloody revolt.

Hillary Clinton is supposedly:
1) Exceptionally bright. Yet she failed the DC Bar exam. She only became an attorney by passing the much easier Arkansas bar exam.
2) Exceptionally hard-working. She was kicked off the Nixon impeachment committee team for unethical behavior.
3) Exceptionally diligent. She was an average attorney who had her Governor husband beg people to give her monthly retainers so she would not get fired.
4) Exceptionally accomplished. none of her supporters can seem to name one single policy accomplishment.
Hillary Clinton is not a moron like Debbie Wasserman Schultz or Nancy Pelosi. She is not lazy like O44. She is not oblivious like O44. She does not have a policy legacy like FDR or even her husband.
She is an average woman with an undistinguished record. Wherever she has gone, she has avoided being the worst but has never been anywhere near the best. As Secretary of State, she was far below average. Everywhere else, she was inconsequential.
So enough with the myth that Hillary Clinton is some kind of trailblazer. She married a talented guy and rode his coattails. He was exceptional whether one agreed with him or not. She was just along for the ride. That is not feminism. That is the opposite of feminism.
It kills liberals to admit it, but many conservative women they deride as dumb or evil are far more accomplished.
Sarah Palin ran a city. Liberals will sneer that Wasilla is small, but it is still more than what Hillary did.
Michele Bachmann is an accomplished tax attorney. Tax law is a very complex subject and Bachmann knows it inside and out.
Dr. Condoleeza Rice is off the charts regarding her many accomplishments in terms of depth, width and breadth. She is also a classically trained pianist.
Hillary Clinton is just a woman who was lucky enough to marry a guy who accomplished stuff. Take away him, and she is nothing.
That is who Democrats are propping up in their latest attempt to continue treating the presidency as an affirmative action project. Hillary Clinton is inferior, and deep down she knows it.

The Senate hammered proposed gun control laws, and Democrats simply cannot figure out that disarming Americans in the face of extreme danger isn’t the correct thing to do.
Listening to the news, and reading social media brings something to mind. Specifically, a bumper sticker that we got into trouble for placing on the ceiling of the ambulance. “Are you stoned, or just stupid?” Let’s go through the proposals.
On Terrorists: Who gets to choose who is a “terrorist?” Would that be the very same people that called many non leftest WordPress Bloggers “terrorists?” Along with others that simply disagree with these elitists..?
Background test expansion: Anyone with a brain knows that background tests simply do not work. They never have, and never will. A black market is already thriving in this nation for weapons that the average person does not, or can’t get access too. This simple fact of life also blows away the RINO proposal of a waiting period that allows a challenge for denial of a purchase.
Implementing even more restrictions on the rights and liberties of Americans will be met with the same success that our fabulous victory that The War on Drugs has racked up.
On that note? Have those that desire Americans to be helpless in the face of grave danger simply stoned from inhaling Unicorn Farts, or are they in fact guilty of treason? Or both..?
I need you to call your Senators right away and urge them to OPPOSE all the gun control legislation that may be voted on as early as today. You can reach your two Senators at 202-224-3121. Please …

I need you to call your Senators right away and urge them to OPPOSE all the gun control legislation that may be voted on as early as today.
You can reach your two Senators at 202-224-3121.
Please call the Capitol Switchboard at that above number and then ask to speak to your two Senators.
Making Americans helpless is not the proper answer for responding to terrorism. Any other response is treason, no excuses…
The current occupier of the White House actually admitted that there was, in fact, a terrorist attack on American soil. Honestly, I did not believe that he had the intestinal fortitude to admit it. Better late than never some might say. I am not one of those people…
The obama, simply got caught between two of his biggest supporting groups. Not wanting to end up like Mussolini he chose to support the gay movement over his spiritual brethren.
