The NRA’s Chuck Norris Ad

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


The National Rifle Association is firing up its voter army for November’s midterm elections. Nevermind that the past two years have brought the greatest advances in gun rights in a half-century: that won’t stop the NRA from scaring people with the prospect of “them” coming to try to take away your gun. Here’s Walker, Texas Ranger star Chuck Norris, helping out:

Anyway, Chuck, who makes Apple Pie look un-American, is right: you should register to vote. And you should also read Mother Jones’ full Chuck Norris coverage. Remember the time he took on the climate change “con game“? Or debunked the theory of evolution? Or joined the birthers? Those were all awesome. But while I realize Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves, I’m personally more of a fan of General Petraeus—a man who has his own adjective.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
