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.

A friend of mine sent me a picture of a 79-year-old Ukrainian woman getting her first lesson on how to shoot an AK47 obviously in preparation of the Russian invasion of her country.  The photo stirred memories of years ago when the anti-gun crowd claimed the Second Amendment was useless when it comes to defending your homeland with armed citizens.  I do not agree with that premise nor do most Ukrainians.  My guess is that there are Russian soldiers who also might disagree with that premise.

It seems that no matter which way we look, some government somewhere is tightening the noose of government control to lessen the freedom of law-abiding citizens to make their voices heard.  Of course, I am speaking of the people’s freedoms, not the government approved freedoms we are supposed to support.  The freedom to not follow the mask mandates is the one I am speaking about, the fight against government ordered masks.  The mask mandates have become a symbol of government overreach and therefore have become the line in the sand.  Protests are popping up all over the world.  For us here in the United States, it is a battleground.  There are those who love government control right here in the United States.  They espouse the government propaganda line on masks, gun control, social justice and everything else.  These are the left-wing billionaires who support no-bail, reduced sentences, easy on criminal policies, open borders and all the rest of it that is tearing our country apart.  Much of this is supported by people like George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg and Ed Bastian of Delta Airlines.  There are others also.  The big battle is coming.

The Illinois State Police (ISP) has released a statement regarding their efforts in getting FOID cards processed.  Actually, the ISP does a good job as long as the person fills out the application correctly.  If you, or whoever helped you, made some mistake on the application you are still in the soup.  If you are an ISRA member, there are two staff members in the office who will help you.  Please do not call on Mondays or before 10am.

The online publication “The Reload” reported what we already suspected about the NRA and their financial condition. The phalanx of lawsuits launched against the NRA and Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, has hurt them badly.  Of course, the lawsuits were designed to do just that.  Legal fees now make up 20 percent of the NRA’s expenses.  The Reload sort of backhands the NRA for paying Wayne LaPierre’s legal expenses but in the real world, that is what has to be done.  LaPierre was acting on behalf of the NRA and I am glad they are backing him up.

Since the Biden Regime has taken control of the government, we have been inundated with experts who are telling us, or at least trying to tell us, what to think.  It is important to remember that these so-called experts are either employed by the government or work for a quasi-government organization that is beholden to the government for their existence.  If you remember the first few hours of the COVID-19 news, some experts disagreed with Dr. Fauci but they were rounded up and soon fell into line.  This is how all this works, in my view.  The government strategists tell the experts what their opinion will be. Then the government asks them what their opinion is and they regurgitate the government propaganda line they were told to give.  Then the President, or whoever the spokesman is, tells us to follow the science.  Winston Churchill had a great quote regarding experts and the United States: “Nothing could be more fatal for the United States than to get into the hands of experts.  Expert knowledge is limited knowledge, and unlimited ignorance of the plain man who knows where it hurts is a safe guide than any rigorous direction of a specialized character”.  You said it, Sir Winston.

I have not flown for a couple of years.  The last time I flew before this SHOT Show was in 2019.  Going out and coming back this time was even less pleasant than in 2019.  Coming back was particularly aggravating.  Sure, I had to show a photo ID every time I walked a few feet while hanging on to my phone and iPad.  When I got to the metal detector, I explained that I had four plates in my neck.  Still, the metal detector found something and I had to be wanded down.  I set that wand off so I had to be patted down.  Still nothing, so I went to pick up my shoes, watch, backpack, coat and other items in the two trays I had crammed everything onto.  One tray went one way and the other tray had gone down another way.  The tray with my backpack had to be searched.  My backpack was full of such terrorist items as pens, paper and my meds.  I learned the hard way a few years ago, if you take meds, keep them with you.  Once, my luggage went to San Francisco but I went to Washington D. C.  Not good.  After my backpack was searched and I redressed myself, I was ready to go to the gate.  I admit I muttered to myself about why I had to put up with all this crap.  I had never done anything bad.  I have a FOID card and CCL and go through background checks every night and the TSA people don’t go through any.  All that gave away to dealing with driving on the Tristate Expressway, Interstates 88, 355 and 55.  When I got to the last 30 miles, the road is a nice blacktop two lane road occupied with about 10 vehicles and a couple of rabbits.  Wonderful.  When I got home, my blood pressure had dropped to normal levels.  Then I turned on the TV to see the latest news.  It was then I learned the TSA had ruled that illegal aliens can use their arrest warrants to board airplanes.  I wondered what illegal aliens use for a photo ID, their wanted poster?  I did not check my blood pressure before going to bed.

As promised, I am at the SHOT Show.  Attendance is down about 33% and the number of exhibitors is down 25%.  Many of those who are here have cut down on the number of personnel and their displays.  This does not mean that sales are necessarily down.  It was much easier to talk to factory people and they were able to take more time with each person.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has issued a Scam Alert to those trying to purchase high demand shooting products online. There are bogus websites and offers out there for ammunition, propellants and other items.  I have received two calls from people who have been scammed so I know that this is happening.  If this happens to you, call the FBI or the ATF and report it.

The first week of the 2022 General Assembly has been canceled.  We will be starting on Tuesday, January 11th in the House of Representatives.  The Senate is canceled next week.  Not surprising.  The January session will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until the end of the month.  Those same days will carry over into the first week of February.  We will keep you informed.
