NASCAR finds a new friend and sponsor
Guns.com
The National Rifle Association is taking their sponsorship of NASCAR and the racing sports to a new level this year, grasping at a chance to re-brand the Sprint Cup Series 500 race on April 13, following Samsung's departure as the leading sponsor. It will be the first NRA 500. "We've had other offers but a lot of people wait and expect you to drop your price. That's not something we do. We're not going to be a discount speedway," said Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage, not revealing specific details.

How gun companies are standing up for the Second Amendment
Guns & Ammo
There are many similarities between the current wave of gun control insanity and the proposals by President Bill Clinton in the early 1990s.
