“At a time when the Second Amendment is under assault by anti-gun politicians in both parties, it’s encouraging to see a candidate make protecting the right to bear arms a centerpiece of his campaign,” declared NAGR-PAC Director Dudley Brown.

“I thank the association and its members for this endorsement,” remarked Messner, who is one of two Republican candidates vying to confront Democrat incumbent Senator Jeanne Shaheen in the November general election.

“I have always believed in the right to bear arms, envisioned by our founders and protected by our Constitution, and the National Association for Gun Rights has been a steadfast ally in the fight against relentless attacks on our Second Amendment freedoms,” Messner stated.

“Messner has vowed to fight legislation that would infringe upon the Constitutional right of Granite Staters to defend themselves, their families or their home, or to engage in hunting or other shooting sports,” his campaign announced.

NAGR is one of the premiere pro-gun organizations in the country and their endorsements aren’t just handed out to anyone.

Messner should be on every gun owners’ radar in the 2020 election.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
