|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!
CALL TODAY TO HELP THIS IMPORTANT CAUSE!
We appreciate your help and, as always, we stand united with you.
Stolen from a Facebook Friend, Bret Rogers;
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.

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 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.
Here is a guest post from my wonderful friend Tex Reynolds, as fine a writer as you’re likely to find, a true Patriot and a staunch Conservative.
Huffington Post writer defends riots at Trump rallies as ‘violent resistence’ (sic)
Is this “free speech”? There is a difference between being able to speak out on one’s beliefs and using violence to quash the rights of others.
According to Wikipedia:
The right to freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Article 19 of the ICCPR states that “everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”. Article 19 additionally states that the exercise of these rights carries “special duties and responsibilities” and may “therefore be subject to certain restrictions” when necessary “[f]or respect of the rights or reputation of others” or “[f]or the protection of national security or of public order (order public), or of public health or morals”.
In the past seven years we have seen progressives use (abuse) semantics and twist the actual definitions of words, often using a word while meaning that word’s antonym. They use honesty meaning prevarication; transparency meaning secrecy; openness meaning obfuscation; work meaning golfing, compromise meaning capitulation; freedom meaning subservience; respect meaning disdain; and unity means division; etc. They accuse others of doing of acts that they, themselves are actually guilty.
Supposed journalists, those who should have a basic working knowledge and vocabulary ignore what it is occurring, instead using their bully pulpits slathering praise on those who would destroy America.
For decades we have witnessed the planned moral decline of this Nation.
We have allowed liberals to dominate our education system and dumb down the populace. We have allowed the eco-freaks to preserve our natural resources so that they now can be stolen by foreign entities. We have watched as multinational agro companies decimated our family farms so they could control food supplies and use those food supplies as weapons of power. We have watched politicians compromise principles and allow the watering down of our Constitution. We have watched a legal system that favors the rich, gives more rights to the criminals and ignores the victims.
We have watched faux preachers establish their private earthly kingdoms while ignoring the Heavenly Kingdom. We have watched our Country become a world joke and now we watch as the anarchists, the communists, the socials and provocateurs use violence to silence us.
Now there are people who are willing to stand up and resist the further destruction of our Nation, are you one of them? This country was founded on religious principles but designed NOT to be a theocracy. Stand up for America
There is a lot of concern about this bathroom controversy, and rightly so. The POTUS really stepped on his clit with this one, and that is putting it mildly.
Actual transgenders have been using the bathrooms of there sex reassignment for years, and nobody cared. Why? Because they were already “switched” for lack of a better term.
What concerns most of us are the perverts that will be pretending to be a transgender in order to further their twisted wants and desires…
The Department of Justice can do what they want, so can our idiot in chief. So can the parents etcetera of those affected.
This is how. Say, some lunatic molests your son in the bathroom. You, being a decent parent, shoot the jerk. You go to jail for whatever charges the obamanites can dream up. Jury Trial, no deals… We the people, in front of God and everybody find you not guilty, and the Jury Foreman rips the prosecutor a new anus…
This seems to becoming thematic. No real candidate that is taking the nation as the top priority. Another ego contest compounded by lie after lie. As usual both sides are waving the flag, and as usual? Not a damned thing is being said about protecting the rights of individuals. Every damned solution put forward is nothing more than more laws expanding the government.
