Mike shares a tasty morsel of 2nd Amendment goodness
“The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner.” – Report of the Subcommittee On The Constitution of the Committee On The Judiciary, United States Senate, 97th Congress, second session(February, 1982), SuDoc# Y4.J 89/2: Ar 5/5

We discuss the NRA election, what qualifies you to vote and who we support. We also discuss bullet voting, the practice of voting for only those you truly support and not using all 25 voting opportunities. We endorse the idea of bullet voting.
An SAF funded court case reached a decision last week. The result is that a portion of the Gun Control Act has been declared unconstitutional in Federal District Court. The specific section dealt with residency requirements of those purchasing handguns. This could be the beginning of a beautiful series of lawsuits.
Second Amendment Free Agency
Here the guys discuss John’s concept for advocacy when one doesn’t feel they can be aligned with any local groups. The model of individuals belonging and dedicating themselves to a particular organization seems to be an aging one. Maybe we have gotten to a point where at the grassroots level, we work to develop the community, not a particular organizational structure. The formula of formal organizations seems to lead to more rigidity and overhead and less effective activity. A new model is based on the premise that each individual can simply pick projects they want to support by volunteering or donating, even if they don’t belong to a specific organization.
There are a couple of requirements for this to work. First, organizations need to target specific activities that they need performed and develop easy ways to volunteers to help with that activity. Second, individuals need to maintain their awareness of what activities are being conducted to which they can contribute.
We are very interested in thoughts or ideas based on that concept. Reach out to us on our website. Use the contact tab, or leave a message.

The ATF is working to ban a specific type of ammunition, the M855, using law that bans “armor piercing ammunition. However, the law doesn’t appear to provide for banning ammunition with a lead core, as the M855 does. The ATF is doing this by changing the categories of ammunition to which it will allow an exemption by way of a “sporting purpose” test. Follow the link above to find out how to comment on this change.
