Democrats Demand That YouTube Remove Building Guides for Untraceable Guns

A group of five Democrats in the Senate have penned a letter to YouTube demanding that it remove instructional videos showing users how to build untraceable, unregistered firearms, which have been pejoratively labeled “ghost guns” by critics. The letter is signed by Sens. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) (pdf). Currently, YouTube’s terms of service prohibit users from uploading videos that show how to build firearms, ammunition, or accessories, but the five signatories say that those rules are not being enforced on the platform. “We write to express our serious concern that YouTube continues to host videos that instruct viewers on how to make and manufacture ghost guns. This content is a clear and direct violation of YouTube’s existing Community Guidelines on firearms,” the senators wrote to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. “We are alarmed that an extensive amount of this dangerous content still […]

KS: FIND ACT has its First Committee Hearing Soon!

); The Firearms Industry Nondiscriation (FIND) ACT, or SB 482, is an attempt to discourage corporate discriation against the firearm industry. It would require companies to certify that they do not discriate against firearms in any of their policies before they enter into contracts with government entities. Contact your State Senator to tell them that you don’t want them handing your taxpayer dollars to anti-gun Wall Street corporations seeking to destroy your rights. And tell them to support the FIND ACT, SB 482, to secure the inherent freedoms of the citizens of Kansas from banking discriation!

Muzzleloader: How to Find the Best Load

For reasons that have never really been all that clear to me, you can take two .50 caliber muzzleloading rifles with barrels the same length, the same rate of twist, same sights, etc. from the same factory and find that they will shoot slightly better with different loads. Though many of us all too often load up whatever ammo we are lucky enough to find these days for our breech loading firearms, all firearms will perform better if you take the time to figure out what ammunition actually works best in your particular firearms. That is true whether you are shooting rifles, handguns, or shotguns, and it is definitely true when it comes to muzzleloading firearms. Our friend Ethan from ILoveMuzzloading.com has been working on finding the ideal load for his .40 caliber Kibler southern mountain rifle. Getting Started So what do you do?

WY: The Wyoming Legislature Will Consider a Second Amendment Protection Act!

We have been telling you for months that the Wyog Legislature should stand between the Biden Adistration and Wyog citizens and protect our Second Amendment rights. Second Amendment Protection Acts (SAPA) are legal tools that states can use to protect state citizens from an over-reaching Federal Government. GOA-backed SF0102 was just sponsored by Senator Larry Hicks [R] and fourteen other members of the Wyog Legislature. Representative Mark Jennings [R] will be the Floor Manager in the House of Representatives. This Bill, called the Wyog Second Amendment Protection Act, if enacted into law, would make it illegal for state and local officials to enforce or cooperate with unconstitutional Federal gun control. Now the battle begins! There is one other SAPA Bill that has been filed, and while it is a good Bill, it does not have the legal protections we need. The reality is that SF0102 is the Bill with the strongest protections and the greatest […]

WY: The Wyoming Senate Introduced and Referred A Second Amendment Protection Act to Committee!

GOA-backed SF0102 was successfully introduced into the Senate by a 21 to 9 vote! This is great news because the Bill received the two-thirds vote needed to be considered during a Budget Session. This Bill, called the Wyog Second Amendment Protection Act, if enacted into law, would make it illegal for state and local officials to enforce or cooperate with unconstitutional Federal gun control. There has been a lot of confusion about SF0102 and a similar Bill that has not received the necessary votes to be introduced. Some opponents of SF0102 have claimed that it does not prohibit Wyog officials from enforcing unconstitutional gun control or that it only applies to firearms manufactured in Wyog. In fact, as you can for yourself by clicking this link, SF0102 clearly prohibits both the use of funds and personnel to enforce draconian federal gun control. Further, some groups may be confused because SF0102 references penalties found in the Wyog Firearms Freedom […]

More GOP Cosponsor Gun Control Bill

); Help Us DEFEAT Remaining Gun Control Provisions Good news and bad news regarding the Senate “compromise” on the leftist reauthorization of S. 3623, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (also known as VAWA). The good news is that GOA was able to pressure Senators to take out a lot of terrible anti-gun provisions which were passed by the House. The bad news is not all of the anti-gun provisions were removed. We need you to contact both of your Senators today and tell them to remove all anti-gun language. Violence Against Women Act Weaponized for Gun Control Domestic violence is not a partisan issue.  But congressional Democrats […]

Q Versus the ATF

You can tell a company has plenty of attitude when their website is liveqordie.com. New Hampshire-based Q, LLC and its founder, Kevin Brittingham, are loaded with unabashed attitude. “I’m pretty bold. I think I’m pretty confident. I’m not afraid of confrontation. I’m not afraid of losing. Well, I’m definitely afraid of losing. But, I’m not afraid of failing,” he told recoilweb.com in 2016 Brittingham is also innovative. He started his first company making silencers. Q still does and they carry names like Trash Panda, Thunder Chicken, and Jumbo Shrimp. Q also makes guns with the equally don’t-give-a-flip names Honey Badger, Sugar Weasel, and The Fix.

FL State Rep. Michelle Salzman Threatens Pro-Gun Hispanic Organization For Promoting Constitutional Car

GOA is a no-compromise organization that stands for liberty and protecting our Second Amendment rights.

AL: Constitutional Carry Faces Historic Challenge

); Speak Up to Reject a Weakening Amendment in HB 272! Due to the activism of gun owners like you, the Alabama House’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee passed the Constitutional Carry bill, HB 272. This is a historic first step in Alabama, as Constitutional Carry has never passed out of any House committee in the Yellowhammer State. However, weak-kneed lawmakers recommended an amendment to HB 272 which would create a “duty to inform” a police officer that one is carrying a firearm. Law enforcement officers are trained to assume that everyone is armed during a traffic stop, so this amendment is, at best, unnecessary. In reality, […]

WI: Senate Bill Could Hurt People who use a Firearm in Self Defense

); Unfortunately, some people just can’t help but look for any way to infringe upon your rights. At first glance, SB 852 might seem like a regular bill that is just tough on crime. But upon closer exaation, a lot of problems become clearly evident. Under this bill, a prosecutor will not be allowed to dismiss a charge of “illegal possession of a firearm,” if said individual is involved in a “violent felony.” One huge problem is that a “violent felony” is so broadly defined in Wisconsin law that it even includes owning a “Short Barrel Rifle (SBR).” And as you may know, the ATF wants to unconstitutionally ban […]

Facebook Censors ATF’s Gun Registry With Error-Laden USA Today “Fact Check”

In a recent report, ATF admitted to Congress that it maintains nearly a billion gun and gun owner records. But the agency’s own admission didn’t stop Facebook and USA Today from teag up to “Fact Check” and censor this news which has shocked the Second Amendment community in recent weeks. Now found pinned below Gun Owners of America’s Facebook post is a text box which states: Missing context. Independent fact-checkers say this information could mislead people. The average Facebook user might now be inclined to click the link “see why,” which redirects to a so-called “Fact Check” article from USA Today—rather than the full story from its original source. Interestingly enough, when scrutinized, USA Today’s so-called “Fact Check,” which labels our claim of a partial national gun registry as “missing context,” makes eleven FALSE statements and eight statements that are MISSING CONTEXT. Indeed, by trusting in Facebook and USA Today, […]
