President's Message: Don't Get Too Lost in The Fishing

Posted by Kenyon Gleason on 6/12/18 1:00 PM

If you're like me, you probably don't spend all your time with a gun in your hands. On occasion, I've been known to pick up a fishing rod. As a kid, it was not uncommon for me to bring a fishing rod with me to the field and take a "long lunch" to fish in the river.

Hogue Severing Ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods

Posted by NASGW on 6/12/18 12:13 PM

Hogue Inc. stands with its industry partners and has removed Dick’s Sporting Goods and their subsidiary Field & Stream as an authorized dealer of Hogue Inc. products. Dick’s Sporting Goods recently made the decision to halt sales of and destroy their inventory of modern sporting rifles. They no longer offer standard capacity magazines, and now restrict the minimum age of rifle buyers to 21, contradicting the Federal law age of 18. Additionally, they’ve hired lobbyists to argue further gun law restrictions which will directly impact law abiding citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights.

President's Message: Fact vs. Fiction

Posted by Kenyon Gleason on 5/11/18 4:48 PM

If you only ever listened to the nightly news on the major networks in this country, you might think the good ol’ USA was quickly on its way to the netherworld. Seriously, I simply can’t stand to watch the news anymore because it’s downright depressing, maddening and frustrating. Thank goodness for alternative media sources.

Please share this response with your readers.  Please help us counter the mainstream media’s spin that this is somehow a win for foes of the Second Amendment. Nothing could be further from the truth.

President's Message: Honestly, We’d Appreciate the Honesty

Posted by Kenyon Gleason on 4/16/18 8:24 AM

I suppose it might be too much to hope for, but I hope I never have to hear another anti-gun champion suggest “we really don’t want to take your guns.” The problem with not telling the truth is that you can’t be trusted. Ever. About anything.

 I wouldn’t like it, but at least I could respect a person’s opinion if they were just honest about what they really wanted. When you understand what someone really wants, it can help to facilitate an actual conversation. But when they start out by lying, it pretty much ruins that possibility right out of the gate.
