Indiana Primary Election Ratings & Endorsements Are Now Posted on NRAPVF.ORG

Fellow ISRPA Members,

The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has updated the grades on (most of) the candidates in the upcoming (7 May) Primary Elections. These include Governor, US Senate, US House, State Senate, and State House candidates.

This year will not only be highly-contentious in the Presidential election, but in Indiana as well. The Governor, one US Senator, and several US House seats (Districts 3, 6, and 8) do not have an incumbent.

One race that has caught my attention (you can’t avoid all the TV and radio commercials) is the 6th District US House. This District runs from just south of Indianapolis to south of Columbus in the west, and from (all the way east to the Ohio State line) south of Winchester to well south of Richmond.

One of the Republican candidates in this race is Jefferson Shreve. It is rare to see a Republican candidate with a an NRA-PVF “F” grade. Those of us who live in the Indianapolis area and remember his run for Indianapolis Mayor in 2023 (when he adopted the same anti-2nd Amendment platform as the Indianapolis City/County Council which included an “Assault weapons ban”, eliminating Constitutional Carry of handguns, raising the age limit to purchase ANY firearm to 21) know he earned the F-grade.

Those of you who live in the eastern part of the State who get your local news out of Dayton or Cincinnati: Jefferson Shreve is buying a lot of commercial time on radio and TV. Keep in mind that he earned the F from NRA-PVF while running for Indianapolis Mayor.

National Review Wrong on ATF Frame or Receiver Rule

National Review Wrong on ATF Frame or Receiver Rule

Source NRS | Repost ISRPA 8/22/2023 – 

Political observers expect the Washington Post and the New York Times to carry water for Joe Biden’s Department of Justice gun control agenda. It’s surprising when the conservative National Review seemingly bends over backwards to defend the weaponized agency in a poorly researched and written piece.

On August 9, National Review published an item with the confident title “Yes, the ATF Can Legally Regulate Ghost Guns.” The ill-informed piece was written by a summer intern. If it was an unpaid internship, the publication got every penny’s worth.

At issue is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives rule 2021R-05, concerning the “Definition of “Frame or Receiver” and Identification of Firearms.” Published April 26, 2022, the rule, in part, contends that ATF has the statutory authority to regulate so-called unfinished or 80-percent frames or receivers. As firearms built from unregulated parts for personal use do not require markings and are not subject to federal recordkeeping, gun control advocates refer to firearms constructed using unfinished frames or receivers as “ghost guns” to spook the ignorant.

Federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(3), defines “firearm” for the purposes of the Gun Control Act (GCA) as follows:

(3) The term “firearm” means (A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive; (B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon; (C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or (D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.

August Is National Shooting Sports Month

August Is National Shooting Sports Month

For the seventh year in a row, August is National Shooting Sports Month, and events are being held at a variety of locations across the nation. Some of the biggest in the industry are supporting the celebration, including the NRA, MidwayUSA, SIG Sauer, Mossberg, Trijicon, Browning, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Winchester and dozens more.

In many cases enthusiasts are granted free use of ranges on special days during the month. It’s a great, no-cost opportunity to get behind a trigger at a facility they’ve never visited before.

On Saturday, Aug. 19, for example, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife is hosting a Free Range Day at five of Ohio’s premier public shooting ranges—Deer Creek Wildlife Area, Delaware Wildlife Area, Grand River Wildlife Area and Spring Valley Wildlife Area.
