We like that he references “so-called assault weapons” since most of the media has no idea what classifies anything as an “assault weapon” to begin with. It’s just a made up term by the anti-gun crowd dating back to the early 1990s. He’s also signaling the GOP that they better not turn weak in the knees during the relentless assault on the Second Amendment.
On the Today show this morning, NRA President David Keene predicted to show host Matt Lauer that Congress would not successfully pass an assault weapons ban in 2013.
“I do not think that there is going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the Congress,” Keene declared, after Lauer asked him if the NRA was powerful enough to block the legislation.
Lauer questioned Keene about whether the power of the NRA was “eroded” after the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Lauer and these other media schmucks are standing on the graves of the dead in order to promote their agenda and it’s only going to get worse. Obama and his minions will be exploiting Sandy Hook victims as long as they can (can’t wait for the SOTU, huh?) in order to shred your Second Amendment rights.
There must be resistance, no matter how much gun owners are demonized. If the GOP knuckles under do they actually believe they’ll be treated fairly thereafter?
Any doubts about the left’s agenda? Well, look how the NRA was treated when meeting with Biden and the gun grabbers.
We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners – honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen. Instead, we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works – and what does not.
