  1. With violent crime increasing over the last year, Americans want a solution. Over and over, President Joe Biden frames violent crime as a gun problem. His presentation this month was no different. But the problem is much more far-reaching. Violent crime is rising across the board, and in 2019, 92% of it didn’t involve guns. Even just 2% of gun crimes end in murder. That has been virtually the same percentage for decades, and even if gun crime surged relative to all other violent crime it would still be a relatively small percentage. It’s not hard to find explanations for the increased vio
  2. Have you noticed how our language is changing? At a congressional hearing on “Birthing While Black,” nearly every politician used the words “birthing people” instead of “women” or “mothers.” Asked why, Shalanda Young, President Joe Biden’s budget director, said, “Our language needs to be more inclusive.” Activists have also changed “equality” to “equity” and “affirmative action” to “diversity.” The Associated Press no longer uses “mistress.” It tells reporters to use “companion, friend, or lover.” Worse, certain speech is now labeled “violence.” Calling a transgender w
  3. “They’re killing people.” That was the simple declarative sentence President Joe Biden uttered in response to a question a reporter asked him as he left the White House on Friday. “On COVID misinformation, what’s your message to platforms like Facebook?” the reporter had shouted as the president was walking toward Marine One. Biden turned and walked directly toward the reporter. “They’re killing people,” he said. “I mean, it really—look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated,” he said. “And they’re killing people.” At her regular briefing the day bef
  4. WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 20, 2021) — The Center for Human Liberty and Dr. William English have submitted an amicus curiae brief to the United States Supreme Court in NYSRPA v. Bruen, the most important Second Amendment case in over a decade. The Supreme Court granted certiorari earlier this year in a challenge to New York’s “may-issue” carry license scheme and will address whether Second Amendment rights extend outside of the home. The brief can be found at FPCLegal.org. The brief, submitted by Edward Paltzik of Joshpe Mooney Paltzik LLP and Philip Williamson of Taft Stettinius & Hollis
  5. WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 21, 2021) — Today, a coalition of Second Amendment organizations from California to New Jersey announced the filing of an important merits-stage United States Supreme Court brief in the case of NYSRPA v. Bruen supporting the right to bear arms in public. The brief’s parties include FPC American Victory Fund, Coalition of New Jersey Firearms Owners, San Diego County Gun Owners, Orange County Gun Owners, Riverside County Gun Owners, California County Gun Owners, and Knife Rights Foundation. The brief can be found at FPCLegal.org. The brief, submitted by historian and
  6. WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 21, 2021) — Today, the Madison Society Foundation (MSF) announced that it has filed an important merits-stage United States Supreme Court brief in the Second Amendment case of NYSRPA v. Bruen, the latest Second Amendment case granted by the Court. The brief can be found at FPCLegal.org. The brief, authored by attorney and Firearms Policy Coalition’s Senior Director of Legal Operations, Adam Kraut, provides the Court with key historical resources, arguing that: our nation’s history and traditions should inform the Court’s interpretation of the enumerated right to bea
  7. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court decided to hear the NRA-ILA backed case challenging New York’s restrictive concealed-carry-licensing regime. NRA-ILA’s opening brief is located here. Today, NRA-ILA applauds Rep. Claudia Tenney (NY-22) and the 175 other Members of the U.S. House of Representatives who filed an amicus brief supporting this case. Rep. Tenney and her colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives declared their support because they have “sworn an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and have an obligation to defend and uphold the rights recognized in the document, i
  8. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the NRA-ILA backed case challenging New York’s restrictive concealed-carry-licensing regime. NRA-ILA’s opening brief is located here. Today, NRA-ILA applauds the 26 Attorneys General who filed an amicus brief supporting this important case. Led by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Missouri Attorney General Eric S. Schmitt, the brief was joined by Attorneys General Steve Marshall of Alabama, Treg Taylor of Alaska, Leslie Rutledge of Arkansas, Ashley Moody of Florida, Christopher M. Carr of Georgia, Lawrence G. Wasden of Idaho, Th
  9. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court decided to hear the NRA-ILA backed case challenging New York’s restrictive concealed-carry-licensing regime. NRA-ILA’s opening brief is located here. NRA-ILA applauds Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and the 24 other Senators who filed an amicus brief supporting the individual, fundamental right of self-defense outside the home. As detailed in the brief, the Senators explain their support to the Justices in direct terms: because they have “sworn to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’” and support the “Second Amendment against depredations by any or all of t
  10. Yesterday, SB 118, Constitutional Carry, was defeated due to several Senators reversing their initial vote of support on the bill. Two of the Senators who flip-flopped were Senators Patrick Connick (SD-8) and Louie Bernard (SD-31). These two actually had the nerve to speak on the Senate floor to try to explain their reason for betraying the Second Amendment. They admitted they did not do their “research” when they voted the first time in support of your right to carry. Apparently, this “research” entailed meeting with rogue, anti-gun sheriffs in their districts and succumbing to their pres
  11. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court decided to hear the NRA-ILA backed case challenging New York’s restrictive concealed-carry-licensing regime. And just last week, NRA-ILA filed the opening brief in this crucial case, which is located here. Today, NRA-ILA applauds the 43 amicus briefs filed supporting this case. Among these groups, NRA-ILA is heartened to see support from numerous elected officials including 176 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives led by Rep. Claudia Tenney (NY-22), 25 U.S. Senators led by Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), 26 Attorneys General led by Mark Brnovich (AZ) and E
  12. President Joe Biden (D) might have just let the proverbial cat out of the bag. Speaking at a recent town hall event, Biden listed everything he wishes to ban and the list goes further than what he has previously stated. “The idea you need a weapon that can heave the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a 9 mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous. I’m continuing to push the elimination of a sale of those things,” said Biden. That’s right, now it sounds like Biden wants to also ban handguns, as 9 mm is a very common pistol caliber. Prev
