As the leader of the free world calls for more gun control, states across the country are passing pro-gun legislation and candidates look to replace anti-gun legislators in the 2014 November election.
“I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress,” said President Barack H. Obama in regards to gun control in his January State of the Union address.
In the midst of President Obama’s call for gun control, not a single gun control measure has passed on the federal level, and states across the country are seeing more pro-gun legislation passed.
“The Missouri Legislature passed a bill to nullify itself from federal laws that infringe on the Second Amendment, Colorado ousted three state senators after passing radical gun legislation last year, Illinois now allows concealed carry and many more states have passed pro-gun legislation,” said Dudley W. Brown, Executive Vice President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Americans are rallying around their rights and becoming more involved in the legislative process as elected officials vilify gun owners and attempt to chip away at their Second Amendment rights.
The National Association for Gun Rights, billed as the fastest-growing gun rights group in the country, continues to be the key player in defeating anti-gun legislation on the federal and state level.
NAGR spent $6.7 million on lobbying efforts in 2013, almost double the amount the establishment gun lobby spent.
