ISRA Thursday Bulletin - April 7, 2022

IGOLD 2022 is in the history books.  As we expected, it was smaller this year but it was still a success.  I would like to thank all the members, volunteers, staff, lobbyists, and board members who helped.  Once again IGOLD came off without a hitch.  Next year, we will once again be allowed into the Capitol barring unforeseen events.  I hope you will come if you didn’t make it this year.  One of the things that happened that made IGOLD successful was the 25 or 30 Senators and Representatives that joined us at the Lincoln Steps on the east side of the Capitol.  That is more than we have ever had by two.  It is great to see that support among the legislators.  Next year’s tentative date is April 5, 2023.  All that depends on the Legislative Calendar which will be out in mid-December.  We hope to see you there.

NEW McLAUGHLIN POLL SHOWS STRONG SUPPORT FOR 2A AFTER UKRAINE INVASION

NEW McLAUGHLIN POLL SHOWS STRONG SUPPORT FOR 2A AFTER UKRAINE INVASION

Second Amendment Foundation - For Immediate Release - March 23, 2022

BELLEVUE, WA – A new survey by the nationally-recognized polling firm of McLaughlin & Associates shows strong public support for the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Second Amendment Foundation commissioned survey said 66.1 percent of the respondents agreed with the statement posed by the McLaughlin poll stating, “When you see what is going on with Vladimir Putin and Russia’s military invasion of the Ukraine, it is more important than ever for Americans to defend their 2nd Amendment Constitutional freedoms for law-abiding citizens to continue to have the right to own guns for their personal protection.” Only 25.7 percent disagree, and only 8.2 percent had no opinion. The survey may be read here.

Last week, I wrote about a Quinnipiac Poll regarding people who would defend the United States and who would not defend this country should we be attacked as they have been in the Ukraine.  I was shocked at the number of “white flaggers” we have amongst us.  Many of these people are the same ones who would like to do away with the Second Amendment.  Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama signed the Alabama Constitutional Carry bill into law one hour after it passed the final vote last week. The sponsor of the bill was Representative Shane Stringer.  Representative Stringer was fired from his job as a Captain on the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department for sponsoring the bill.  The Alabama Sheriff’s Association opposed the bill so his boss fired him. Representative Stringer is a solid Second Amendment supporter who stood up for what he thought was right and took the hit for doing the right thing.  I predict a bright future for Representative Stringer.  Maybe he ought to run for sheriff.  Alabama is the 22nd state to pass constitutional carry.  Governor DeWine of Ohio signed SB215 making constitutional carry legal in Ohio, making Ohio the 23rd state with Constitutional Carry.  That leaves Indiana being the next state to most likely become part of the Constitutional Carry family.  Georgia is the next most likely after Indiana.  That would bring the total Constitutional Carry states to 25, half of the states.

The long-time leftist dream of destroying the National Rifle Association (NRA) got a setback on Thursday, March 3, 2022.  New York Attorney General Letitia James had part of her lawsuit against the NRA dismissed by New York Supreme Court Justice Joel Cohen.  James had sought to have the New York Supreme Court simply dissolve the NRA.  This part of the lawsuit was simply a political attack on the NRA and its members.  The left is always looking for ways to silence free speech if they don’t like the message.  NRA Counsel William A. Brewer III declared the ruling a victory for all those who believe in free speech and association.  The NRA still has a lot of financial hurdles ahead of it and is by no means out of the woods yet.  Bankruptcy is still a possibility but a victory is still a victory.
