Washington, DC – -( NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are called upon now more than ever to get involved in the upcoming elections to ensure that pro-gun and pro-hunting candidates are elected.

In a press conference this week, Anti-gun groups from Washington and Oregon called for a ban on popular and commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms. 

This ban is right out of the Bloomberg/Clinton playbook and would do nothing to prevent crime.

Criminals, by definition, do not follow the laws and will continue to obtain their firearms illegally, like they always have.  This ban would only affect law-abiding gun owners who use these firearms for recreational target shooting, hunting, and self-defense.

Stand up and fight in 2016 to make sure that you are well-represented in 2017.

If you are in Washington state, please visit for ratings and endorsements of candidates in the August 2nd Primary Election.

There has never been a time more important than this election cycle to make sure we elect pro-gun candidates. This is why we urge you to not only check NRA-PVF to find out where your candidates stand, but also to join us on the FrontLines™ and pledge to support and vote for NRA backed candidates.  Be sure to have your family, friends and fellow Second Amendment supporters do the same.  With everything that is at stake this year, your support this election cycle has never been more critical.

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    1. I am all For the Ban, It should be carefully carried out,. well regulated and required of all criminals and law breakers. Round up the criminals and law breakers make them register their guns, or ban them from the USA. Since Obama will shortly be out of work, put him in charge of rounding up criminals and making them register there guns. While you at, l it, make sure all people without licenses and all drunks don’t drive a car,

    2. We as Americans want to live a peaceful life. We want a fair wages for what we do. But, really, most Americans don’t care one inch about the freedom we have. When was the last time that you went and volunteered any of your time at a VA hospital, or volunteer at all for something connected to a veterans cause? Selfishness is the heart of the people in the USA. Vietnam Veteran (1970/11-1971/11).

    3. ‘TEXAS,LIKE A WHOLE OTHER COUNTRY’ ! I read about all the tyranny going on around the country and it makes me sick ! An all out armed revolution is the only thing that will ever turn it back around in certain states !

    4. This is a commonly used thought but, “When guns are outlawed, I’ll become an outlaw.” You want them, Molon Labe.

    5. It’s not that they don’t get it”shall not be infringed”it’s that they DONT care! That doesn’t apply to them the laws are only for the subjects( peasants) to follow not the the ruling class! We are in big big trouble with any devilcrat in public office the “party’s”platform and ideology is based on destroying our freedoms ,our bill of ropights ,and our constitution as well as America!! Traitors all!!

      1. oh but they DO care….. about enslaving and subjugating us.

        Bottom line…. just as at the founding of our country…. in answer to “why were you out there that morning?” (at Lexington and Concord) came, from one who had been there, “they had a mind that they would tell us how we should live, and we had a mind that they wouldn’t “Nothing has changed since then, has it?

      1. If we want to stop electing the mentally deranged, then we better vote as a solid block. The blacks vote as a block. The hispanics vote as a block. The perverts vote as a block. We had better vote as a block. If you wife is a soccer mom, you better make sure she votes with our block. If you have college kids that can vote, you better make sure that they vote as part of our block. Apply leadership.

    6. The war isn’t against the bad here it’s against the good ….all the rest is a smoke screen..our Nation is now the United Stakes…full of brain dead politician’s Hellarygoddamnshition being #1 piece of Shi t………..

    7. Using crime to ban guns is just a ruse. Their intent is to ban guns so we can’t defend ourselves against the coming ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.

      1. David, although I didn’t read the full article about a well regulated militia. There are many well regulated militia,’s in the USA. You can join a militia if you meet criteria. A militia is here to fight and stand, protect the American people along with the military here on American soil. Someone correct me if I am wrong, I am not an expert. A regulated militia is just as it says, regulated. Now, I am not a US Constitution scholar but I believe at first the 2nd amendment read “a well regulated militia” and then later it I think may have been James Madison who added “and the people” so. my interpretation is a well regulated militia and the people shall not be infringed. Which is us. Again, someone correct me on my history, doesn’t hurt my feelings.

        1. the universally held definition of “militia” at that time was, and should remain, simply “the whole of the people”. In other words, one does not need to be recognised by any agency or arm of government to BE in the militia. Simply “the people” armed and trained. “Well regulated” means simply able to do the task required. In Colonial days, the folks of any town or crossroads would gather on a regular basis, drill, train, perfect their marksmanship skills, make bullets, haversacks, gather needful equipment, etc. When considering the term “well regulated” think of a clock that keeps proper time. It does not do so in response to some sheet of paper with rules, “regulations”, requirements, conditioins, etc, written out. Nor did any militia in that day. Consider 19 April 1775 and the impact the 14,000 Colonial Militiamen made on General Gage’s 800 handpicked soldiers…. part of the finet, best “regulated”, trained, equipped fighting force on the planet at that time. No government authority ever had anything to do with their being so “well regulated”….. merely the local folks preparing for what they had known was coming for ten years or more.

        2. Toooo late for ALL of U.S……start learning Chinese folks their laughing their assets off at how easy the take over will b!!!! Smile as u choke on that!do u think they still use that old piece of paper….it’s toilet paper anymore….(The constitution according to them)

    8. I’m extremely glad I do not live in such a State. I feel that if anyone attempts to take away my 2nd Amendment Rights, then it would be the shoot-out at the OK Corral all over again. “What Part Of “Shall Not Be Infringed” do these brain dead politicians not understand?

        1. If it ever does, then the fight is on. I do not bow, back-down or relinquish any of my Constitutional Rights for anyone and that includes Local, County, State and Federal politicians or Law Enforcement. It may cost me my life, but, I’ll da*n sure take a few with me when I go.

        2. Toooo late for ALL of U.S……start learning Chinese folks their laughing their assets off at how easy the take over will b!!!! Smile as u choke on that!

      1. They do know that! But they don’t care! The problem is, when are you going to realize that?! They have a great plans for all of us! Control and KILL some of us, period!

    9. These da#n fools just don’t get it. The criminals do NOT follow the laws!! Law abiding people do, but they are not the problem. . . . .
