Brady United Launches Digital Campaign To End The Filibuster - Ammoland.com

WASHINGTON, D.C.-(Ammoland.com)-The Brady United organization has started an online ad campaign called “The Filibuster is Killing Us” to end the filibuster in the United States Senate on Monday.

The anti-gun organization has dropped $40,000 to buy digital ads that encourage its supporters to pressure their Senators to kill the filibuster. The Brady United believes that the filibuster is stopping anti-gun legislation from passing in Congress. The group doesn’t think gun control will successfully pass the Senate as long as the rule exists.

“In the past four Congresses, the filibuster has stopped life-saving and common-sense legislation such as expanded and strengthened background checks from passing the Senate, creating a chilling effect on such legislation even as these policies attract overwhelming support from the American public, including majorities of both parties,” The Brady United organization said in their press release.

The filibuster means that for a bill to pass the Senate, a supermajority (60 votes) must vote to end debate before the Senate can vote to pass it. The rule prevents the minority party from being marginalized. It protects the minority from the tyranny of the majority. There is a 50/50 split in the Senate, with Vice President Kamala Harris holding the tie-breaking vote. There are no such protections in the House of Representatives where more radical bills are passed.

Fwd: Bump Stocks Are Back in Congress AGAIN!

Friend --

Believe it or not, the bump stock debate is back...AGAIN! While the infamous bump stock ban is being challenged in the courts, anti-liberty legislators are already preparing for the ban to be overturned outright. In fact, Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) just introduced U.S. House Bill 5427, which would regulate bump stocks just like machine guns.  So basically, tyrants, who were hoping bump stocks would be a relic of the past, are now trying another line of attack to deal with them.  I have a feeling poor Dina is going to be pretty disappointed when we beat this effort back.

In order to fight back against this ridiculous legislation that would make bump stocks an NFA item, please utilize our convenient constituent outreach tool to contact your federal legislators TODAY! Simply click one of the red "Back Off Bump Stock Regs" buttons in this email and you will be provided a prewritten email that, once submitted, will go directly to your specific legislators in Washington, D.C. FPC encourages you to review, edit and personalize this email prior to sending it off.

If we put forward a strong collective effort against this bill, I heavily doubt the divided Congress will be interested in passing such controversial legislation ahead of the midterms. However, nothing in D.C. is a sure thing, so we must keep them accountable for their votes and maintain our pressure campaign. To all those taking action on this bill, I thank you.  FPC remains dedicated to providing you with the latest updates that impact your liberties and freedoms. Now let's crush Rep. Titus' dreams, by unloading on her legislation. 

Yours in Liberty,

FBI Crime Stats for 2020 Prove De-Policing is as Disastrous as it Sounds - Ammoland.com

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The FBI released crime data for 2020 last week, using an amalgamation of data collected under two different systems. Nothing about 2020 was predictable and the nation experienced a 5.6% percent increase in violent crime, including a 29.4% increase in murders. Let’s explore this data and the theories behind the increase.

The overall murder rate in 2020 was 6.5 per 100,000 population. This is the highest since the late 1990s when crime in general and murder specifically began a downward trend. It is not, however, near the peaks that the nation suffered not that long ago. The 2020 murder rate of 6.5 per 100k is lower than it was at any point during the period 1968 through 1997. From 1971 through 1995, the murder rate twice dipped below 8.0 per 100k population – in 1984 through 1985, when it was more than 7.9 per 100k.

Several factors can and should be, considered relevant to the violent increase in 2020. Certainly, we as a society lived through unprecedented – and ever-changing – conditions, including economic stressors known to be related to violent crime. Changing law enforcement strategies throughout the country, whether referred to as “de-policing” or something else, should be considered relevant.

Unsurprisingly, anti-gun radicals have been blaming the increase in gun sales since well before there was blame to assign. This will undoubtedly persist, even though avowed anti-gun policy researcher Doctor Garen Wintemute of UC Davis found no association between so-called “excess purchases” of firearms and non-domestic violence. The association between the alleged “excess purchases” and domestic violence were quite subject to model specification. We covered this research in a July 2021 alert.  We noted, at that time, that Daniel Webster, the Bloomberg Chair at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and Director of the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy, tried to put some positive gun control spin on the findings.

Anti-Gun ATF Nominee Chipman Will Not Go Quietly - Ammoland.com

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Disgraced Biden nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), David Chipman, seems determined to prove his detractors correct. After he was withdrawn for consideration for the post, he began a campaign of trying to shift the blame of his failure to be confirmed from his abysmal record to others; including his sponsor.

First came an email fundraiser from Giffords, the anti-gun organization to which he returned after his nomination imploded. In a plea for funds that carries Chipman’s name, he blames NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) for his failure.

Of course, it is true that both organizations campaigned against this particularly poor nomination, and NRA made no secret of our being pleased when Biden abandoned his ATF nominee. Chipman ultimately failed, however, because enough senators were convinced that it would be outrageous to put a man so devoted to demonizing law-abiding gun owners, gun manufacturers, and federally licensed firearms dealers in a position of authority over them.

Chipman’s message begging for money claims he was the victim of “an unfounded and false disinformation campaign,” but NRA’s efforts were focused on simply reporting what the gun control lobbyist had actually said and done. We reported about his stated support for banning firearms. We reported on his work as a salesman for a product that others (not us) have referred to as “useless, expensive, racist technology.” We reported he had failed to disclose some pretty significant information to the Senate about an interview he did with a Chinese state-run network, CCTV, and broadcast by CGTN (China Global Television Network) America – a network described as “an arm of China’s propaganda machine… controlled by the Communist Party.”
