Whatever they try to tell you, the numbers don’t lie. The strength of our pro-gun advocacy efforts and the peoples’ support for the right to keep and bear arms is unmistakably reflected in a wave of permitless carry legislation making its way across the country.

Judicial Watch: Will They Wiretap You? Adam Schiff’s Secret Subpoenas

They do whatever they want, take whatever documents they want from you … maybe they can start wiretapping you, who knows?” As Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton discussed Friday, Judicial Watch is fighting to overturn a recent court ruling which alleges the House of Representatives enjoys “absolute immunity from inquiries about the subpoenas” they ordered on Rudy Giuliani, Rep. Devin Nunes, and a number of other prominent conservatives. As Fitton explained, Rep.
