  1. Boycott Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms as they betray us all on the 2A.

    Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms decided to not oppose a new Illinois bill (Illinois Gun Dealer Licensing Act, IL SB-1657) limiting firearm purchases to 9 a year and requiring Federal FFL's to get a state license.

    Proof That Springfield Armory and Rock River Knew of Licensing Carve-Out Last Year?

  2. Ironic how firearms writers and the general public are trying to understand how politics works between lobbyists and politicians in America. Many lobbyists lobby and donate funds to their opposition in attempt to win or at minimum lower the amount of collateral damage to the people and industries they represent. NRA has been criticized for years publicly supporting and donating champaign funds to low rating politicians across the Nation, but unfortunately those low graded NRA politicians have the highest rating among their peers which is most likely 80% or more anti-gun political position candidates. This is the world in which we live, created by our politicians and by our own hands as voters.

    Our lobbyist groups we count on to represent our best interests (NRA, GOA, IFMA, and etc) play the same ridiculous game and now the inexperienced Pro-2nd Amendment public is causing substantial damage to our 2nd Amendment Rights compared to the new anti-gun Illinois state law regulations. It's as if traitors prefer to burn the house down before our enemies are able to light a match.

    Pro-Gun writers and the general media never adequately explain lobbying industry interactions within the government system, especially after a major bill has past Federal or State. They have the tendency crap out vague articles cashing in on commercial advertising profits with shock and all presentations, but unfortunately this is leading to the destruction of S.A. and R.R.A. because of consumer speculation of corporate CEOs cutting deals behind closed doors without presenting actual evidence.

    IFMA has several other firearm manufacturer donors the media did not listed, but then again those names would not increase viewer subscriptions or advertisement profit. Another common political issue is socialist liberal progressive politicians often exempt manufacturers from Federal and State Bills limiting the risk of lost jobs and tax revenue. State and Federal Politicians have exempt manufacturers without CEOs knowledge for many years regardless of types of industry involved.

    Every politician's jobs are at greatest risk if unemployment rates skyrocket within one political term of public service.

    John Boch of Truth About Guns.com clearly stated CEO of Springfield Armory knew from last years bill they were excluded from SB-1657 which did not past by 1 vote. S.A. not only continue to fight against anti-gun political pressures, but increased donations to every Pro-gun lobby groups. Boch vague message not disclosing all the information S.A. and R.R.A. donations allows the general public to assume and encourage angry Mob behavior.

    State of Illinois is an extremely socialist liberal progressive state, generating 100s of powerful lobbyist groups and politicians, for example Barack Obama…! After Trump beat Clinton Mafia and Obama Administration left the White House, DC anti-gun groups concentrated their efforts in Illinois State Government recognizing the small margin IFMA lobbying victories.

    The scariest Illinois bill coming up for vote is SB 1291 “Lethal Order of Protection” whereby the firearms of Illinois residents could be confiscated if a family member or “law officer” files a petition stating the gun owner “poses an immediate and present danger of causing personal injury to himself, herself, or another by having … [a firearm] in his or her custody or control.” The NRA-ILA states, “An ex parte order would be issued by a judge based solely on a brief, unsubstantiated affidavit made by a petitioner and absent any input made by the individual on which the order is targeted.”

    Pushing for S.A. and R.R.A. complete failure are actions of traitors of our 2nd Amendment Rights. If this Pro-Gun mental defect continues we'll see many State governments fall to socialist liberal progressives within the next decade. Next State targeted by socialist liberal progressive anti-gun groups is Virginia.

    For several years now Ex-NYC Mayor Bloomberg has spent over 7 million in campaign donations and funding anti-gun lobbyist groups in Va. Bloomberg hired private investigator firms to go undercover and scam gun-dealers with hidden camera's and actors.

    Virginia's current Anti-Gun Governor replaced a Pro-gun Governor during reelection run recently. The majority of foreign firearm importers and firearm corporation headquarters in the United States are located in Virginia.

    If the anti-gun political powers are as successful in Virginia as Illinois, will ignorant Pro-Gun Traitors prefer We the People to die by our own hands completely destroying every major firearm company in the US…?
