NRA-ILA Recommends

  • Pro Gun Protections Enacted Into Law

    Last week, Congress approved the Fiscal Year 2015 Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act. Included in the Act were a number of pro-gun provisions that prevent the Obama administration from implementing its anti-gun agenda. This Act includes new provisions to stop the Obama administration’s efforts regarding Operation Choke Point, a program in which the Department of Justice intimidates financial institutions into refusing or severing financial services to legally-operating ammunition and firearms dealers. In addition, the Act prohibits funds for the Internal Revenue Service to target groups for scrutiny based on their political beliefs, such as the NRA.  

  • New Research Finds Broad Increase in Support for Gun Rights

    Support for the right to keep and bear arms has sharply increased, and support for restricting gun ownership has sharply decreased, over the last two years, according to the results of a new poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. 

  • House Committee Faults FDIC for Participation in Operation Choke Point

    In May, we reported on a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee exposé that substantiated improper activities by the Department of Justice (DOJ) under the guise of Operation Choke Point. While DOJ insisted that the operation was meant to protect the soundness of America’s financial system by targeting fraudulent businesses, the committee report concluded that the true goal of the operation was to “choke out” legitimate industries that regulators considered objectionable. Among others, these included firearm and ammunition sales. 

  • The Doctor is In Lame Duck Senators Confirm Obamas Anti gun Surgeon General

    Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Since February, the NRA has been cautioning gun owners of the threats to their rights posed by Dr. Vivek Murthy, Barack Obama’s anti-gun nominee for U.S. Surgeon General. As news spread last week that a vote on Dr. Murthy’s nomination was imminent, NRA renewed its opposition in a letter to Congress detailing the young physician’s record of gun control activism and his insistence on the “public health” dimensions of the issue.
