GOA sues Biden DOJ over ‘unconstitutional’ waiting period for adults under 21

A “no compromise” gun rights group is suing the Biden adistration over part of the bipartisan gun safety law enacted last summer, arguing that the law imposes unconstitutional waiting periods to purchase firearms on young adults under 21. Senior Vice President, Erich Pratt, shoots a rifle at a range. GOA argues that “de facto” waiting periods created by the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act are unconstitutional. (Gun Owners of America) Gun Owners of America (GOA) on Friday filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of Texas challenging enhanced background check requirements established by the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act last year. The lawsuit names Attorney General Merrick Garland and the FBI as defendants and argues that new requirements for the National Instant Crial Background Check system to review juvenile records for adults aged 18-20 create a “de facto” waiting period that violates their Second Amendment rights. That bipartisan gun control law, spearheaded by Sens. […]

GOA Running Ads Targeting Weak Links in the House

You’re our only hope of stopping Joe Biden from turning millions of law-abiding felons into gun owners overnight. As you may recall, the House Judiciary Committee approved a Joint Resolution of Disapproval last month H. J. Res. 44 that REPEALS Biden’s tyrannical pistol ban. It’s currently poised to come to the floor for a vote in the House over the next week or so. But there’s a big problem… We’ve identified several allegedly “pro-gun” Representatives who are currently on the fence about whether or not they’ll support H.J. Res. 44 when it comes before the chamber. With a razor-thin conservative majority in the House, losing even a few of these squishy Republicans would be enough to completely torpedo this critical bill. That’s why GOA is spending tens of thousands of dollars running ads that generate phone calls to the offices of these cowardly fence-sitters so we can secure […]

GOA and GOF Sue DOJ Over Cornyn-Murphy Waiting Period for Adults Under 21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 12, 2023 Washington, D.C. — Today, Gun Owners of America (GOA) and the Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) filed a federal lawsuit in the Northern District of Texas, challenging the Department of Justice’s de facto waiting periods for NICS background checks on adults who are not yet 21. This new policy is a result of the Cornyn-Murphy gun control package passed last summer, which now imposes unconstitutional waiting periods on young adults. A NICS background check for these individuals now requires a review of juvenile justice records, state mental health records, and those from local law enforcement where the buyer resides. This review is in addition to those records aly held by the FBI NICS System, and because those state and local agencies are not equipped or prepared to provide this information in a timely manner, young gun buyers are simply forced to wait with no recourse, […]

Lot 245 is a classic American longrifle by Samuel St. Clair of Snyder County and Juniata County, Pennsylvania.

Fallschirmjäger: The German WW2 Paratrooper Elite

For the majority of human history, wars were fought only on the ground. The outbreak of WW1 led to martial innovation on a scale never before seen.

These aerial WW1 artifacts are cut-away segments of aircraft canvas. At the center is a cross insignia used by the German Luftstreitkraefte in WW1 and appears to be from a downed Albatross D. III biplane. At war’s end, it was apparent that aerial combat would not be a fleeting trend but would be a major part of warfare. The interwar years saw great progress in technologies both military and civilian, and aeronautic advancement was […]
