Wisconsin: Assembly Committee to Hear NRA-Backed Hunting Reform Tomorrow
Tomorrow at 9:00 a.m., the Assembly Natural Resources and Sporting Heritage Committee is scheduled to hear a bill of importance to sportsmen and hunters in the Badger State.

New Hampshire: State Senate Scheduled to Consider Shurtleff Criminal Protection Bill this Thursday
In March, the New Hampshire House of Representatives undermined your inherent right to self-defense by passing the Shurtleff Criminal Protection Bill, House Bill 135, by a 189-184 vote. The state Senate is scheduled to consider HB 135 and decide the fate of this misguided proposal this Thursday. If passed and enacted into law, HB 135 would repeal important self-defense provisions enacted in 2011 and make the following changes to New Hampshire’s current self-defense laws:

IG report says U.S. Attorney sought to undermine credibility of Fast and Furious whistleblower
Senator Chuck Grassley, Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the following statement after an Office of Inspector General Report showed that U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke leaked a sensitive document to the press regarding a whistleblower who had come forward with allegations of gunwalking, that he leaked an internal memo regarding Fast and Furious suspect Jaime Avila to the New York Times, and that he lied to Deputy Attorney General James Cole. The document leaked to Fox News was deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that it was not provided to Congress, except in a secured room at department headquarters."The Inspector General outlined the Justice Department's efforts to undermine Special Agent Dodson's credibility, the whistleblower who had the guts to come forward and tell Congress the truth about Operation Fast and Furious. The Inspector General confirmed that Mr. Burke went to great lengths to discredit Special Agent Dodson and Congress investigation into the gunwalking that led to the death of Customs and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Mr. Burke's refusal to cooperate with the Inspector General's investigation shows me that he didn t operate in good faith. His actions are indicative of this administration's willingness to attack whistleblowers who cooperate with Congress and show the administration's commitment to undermine legitimate congressional oversight.

LaPierre: Making our nation's school children safer
To understand the current state of the gun ban crowd's "conversation" about destroying the Second Amendment, it boils down to this: insanity versus sanity.With the horrific series of mass murders culminating in the cold blooded killing of children and teachers at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last December, this latest iteration of "gun control" is entirely directed at making the sane pay the price for unthinkable acts committed by the insane. It is the root of the civil disarmament movement in America today.

A federal appeals court has upheld a Texas law that says 18 20 year olds cannot receive a concealed handgun license.The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that the Texas law limiting handgun licenses is constitutional. Lawmakers had decided that those under 21 were not mature enough to carry concealed handguns in public. The law makes an exception for members of the military.
