    Meet Rachel Carrie. She’s a 30-year-old competitive shooter from Britain, and she’s the target of a relentless barrage of cyber bullying, hate mail, and death threats. All because of her pro-gun, pro-hunting lifestyle.

    Carrie’s the daughter of a champion shooter, and has been competing since 2009. She began international clay shooting competitions in 2010, and has seen plenty of success. In 2013 she won the title of Britain’s top female side by side shooter, and even placed among the top ten in men’s competition.

    All of Carrie’s success has brought a lot of attention. The competitor with her long blond hair, and love for fashion is hard to mistake. Which seems to make anti-gun, and anti-hunting groups even more livid.

    The British Newspaper The Daily Mail highlighted Carrie’s story just a few days ago. According to the paper Carrie routinely receives threats on her life, and the lives of her family members.

    “Imagine how you might feel if I shot your mother in the head and then celebrated, rejoiced, gave thanks and respected her high quality flesh as I ate it,” wrote one troll on Facebook.

    “Crossing my fingers for a ‘hunting’ accident in 2014, hoping we’ll find your tiny brain blown off by a shotgun, dripping down rocks covered by your slutty hair, ahh makes me smile just thinking about it!”

    Despite the constant threats, and bullying Carrie has become an outspoken advocate for shooters and hunters. She recently told the Daily Mail, “I truly believe hunting is in our blood, our DNA. Humans have hunted for millions of years, but our society is now so disconnected from nature that we forget that. Life is convenient, industrialised, urbanised, digitized and people seem to think meat comes from a supermarket aisle, where it could have been stuffed with growth hormones.”

    Carrie says she has no plans to back off sharing her sport and love of shooting. If anything she’s doubling down in spite of those who feel the need to lash out at her.

    “If I have one message for my trolls it’s this: if you don’t like it, don’t look because I am not going to stop.”

  • Des Moines Register Thinks Firearms Owners and the NRA are Too Powerful

    December 30, 2014

    Des Moines Register thinks firearms owners and the NRA are too powerful.

    Alright, so maybe this isn’t really breaking news for most of you. By now it’s pretty well-known the Register’s editorial board opposes pretty much every effort to protect or enhance the second amendment rights of Iowans and Americans in general.

    However, earlier this week the Register doubled down on their anti-gun, anti-NRA stance by shaming the U.S. Senate over their vote to confirm Vivek Murthy as the nation’s newest surgeon general. It seems confirming a pro-gun control nominee is simply not good enough for the Register’s editorial board. The fact that millions of NRA members and like-minded individuals opposed Murthy’s appointment is apparently just too much for the Register’s editorial board to handle. Never mind the fact if Harry Reid hadn’t used the nuclear option and changed the fundamental operation of the Senate Murthy would not have been confirmed. Or the fact that gun control, err, gun sense, err, common sense, err, Universal Background Check pusher (D) Joe Manchin of West Virginia also voted against Murthy’s appointment.

    Speaking as Iowa’s most effective 2nd Amendment advocates, and also an NRA affiliate, we thank the Des Moines Register for acknowledging the power of millions of voices united against gun control measures and other repeated attempts further restrict our constitutionally protected freedoms. And while we may never be able to persuade the Register’s editorialists to support our cause we can point them to the truth. A majority of Americans back gun owner rights rather than gun control efforts. Gun ownership is on the rise and yet violent crime continues to fall. And more Americans than ever are realizing that their own personal safety is their responsibility. More than anything else these examples and the millions of NRA members and like-minded individuals are what makes this group so powerful.

    That’s not a political statement. That’s something anyone with a little “common sense” would recognize. It’s a fact.

  • Over the line -OR- Awesome? Ares Armor’s new “Obama’s Blaster”

    September 22, 2014

    Ares Armor, the controversial California firearms maker, has really stepped things up. The company recently rolled out their “The Obama’s Blaster” AR15 upper receiver. The company is playing off the moniker that President Barack Obama’s gun control efforts have made him the world’s greatest gun salesman. Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor, says it’s just a little humor, but some folks don’t agree.

    “I mean, we had one guy who literally said he wished he had a rocket launcher to shoot rockets at us because we named a product after the president,” said Karras. “He’s so anti-gun that he’s become pro-rocket.”

    What are your thoughts? Is using the President’s name for an upper receiver over the line, or is it just funny?
