Media ‘gun control’ proponents argue there’s no longer any need to fear NRA

The Washington Post editorial board yesterday used the sentencing of a shooting rampage maniac in Tucson to amplify a growing post-election theme that the National Rifle Association has lost political clout and is no longer an impediment to passing “gun control” legislation.

Using Brady Campaign election result and expenditure numbers, the Post concluded “This evidence that the association’s ability to influence elections may be exaggerated should stiffen the spines of Mr. Obama and congressional leaders to take on this important issue.”

The long-sought after jewel in the crown of such legislation referenced in the advocacy piece would be semi-automatic firearms, something Dianne Feinstein reportedly met recently with ATF officials about. It’s telling that U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns, a George W. Bush appointee who presided over the Tucson case, “expressed wonder at allowing the unrestricted sale of high-capacity magazines.”

      Whether or not the NRA is effective stands aside to how many militias may be formed.

    I’m an NRA Lifetime member and have purchased Lifetime memberships for my nephews. Hmm, looks like it might be time to send some more $$$ to the NRA Political Action Committee.

  • PWR

    It is time to have a membership drive for the NRA! You will have the best advertisement for free coming from the Govmt. attempt at taking over firearms! I am a long time member, but I know some that are not members yet, you can bet I will be pushing hard to get them on-board. If we can boost membership by tens of thousands over the next few weeks, it will send a message to many. We must not allow our political clout to be dampened by this election, there will be many more elections in the future and we must stand strong now! We knew this was coming yet we had many that could not bring themselfs to vote for Romney… Now we must fight for our rights, or loose them forever!!

      This DICTATOR that we have cares nothing for ORGs like the NRA. the only thing he can see is a country totally disarmed. Remember he thinks of the people of this country as subjects and not citizens This is the way he thinks, this is also the way a person with narcissistic personality disorder thinks. And yes bamba boy has NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER.

    Want MY guns? MY rights “shall NOT be abridged” cause I won’t let them, as my handle might indicate?

    • David J. Stuehr

      Happy belated Birthday. We should all consider taking friends shooting. Trigger time will cure most ills. We need to reach out to shooters and potential shooters who are not NRA members. Swell our ranks and expand out clout.

    Once again: the media does not understand who the NRA is and what we stand for! Our NRA is one of the strongest (if not the strongest) organizations ON EARTH!!! We fight for what we believe in, and we will never give up! Period!

  • Mike_Sr

    Maybe they forget that NRA members own guns and practice regularly?
    A *very* large number of Conservatives and Christians failed to vote at all. Enough that could have turned the election around.
    IN addition a large number of beguiled and decieved ‘christians’ voted contrary to their faith.
    To too easily dismiss these people and risk upsetting them with arrogance could be a straw that breaks the camels back….
    Not wise at all… And, decidedly *NOT* a madate at all.

      All those that did not vote all they did was to turn this country over to the UN.

      I’ll agree with that.

    It should not be forgotten that the American Revolution started when Redcoats tried to confiscate arms from American colonists. Should we be less willing to defend freedom than our ancestors?

      Look what happened in Chicago the people there were more than happy to turn over their guns for some candy.

  • Marlin208

    Maybe they think that the NRA doesn’t have any clout but I can tell you 90 million gun owners do. Try taking the guns away from us and see what happens.

    • detroitheat

      Marlin208: I will say one thing from what i read here if they try and take our Guns that will be the Biggest mu-stack the Democrats ever made even as big as Electing that ASS HOLE Obama. But honestly a Revolution is what this Country really needs rate now just to put this Government in it place….

    Stupid A$$HOLES.. The NRA is but the tip of the ICEBERG… Out of sight and below the surface is an army of Armed civilians that out number every Countries Military including that of RED CHINA… See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_number_of_military_and_paramilitary_personnel..

    There are about 80 million gun owners in America with a combining total of 258 million guns owned.. If each gave an unarmed American one gun that number would almost double.. This does not account for those who have Federal Licenses for FULLY automatic weapons, tanks, artillery, war planes, and a whole range of lethal military equipment.. Most gun owners have had some type of training, military, para military, police, hunting, conceal carry… And what is even more telling, these numbers are based on 2009 data.. We know Obama is the worlds greatest Gun Salesman EVER.. His policies have rocketed gun sales threw the roof, we may be looking at gun ownership well over 100 million… Americas’s TOTAL Military, Active, Reserve and Para Military is about 3 Million…….. The NRA is but a token head to peacefully argue gun rights with a government bent on confiscation… The danger Liberals ignore because Peaceful gun owners are quite is the wrath gun grabbers will face when gun confiscation begins, no matter who is doing the collecting, UN Troops under the guise of UN Small Arms Treaty, Obama Executive Orders to his goons and military, it doesn’t matter, Civil War will come with the attempt to disarm America… Many Oath Keeping Military Personnel, Police etc will join the Civilian Resistance to a DOMESTIC ENEMY and they will bring their weapons with them…

      You are right, i am 1 of that 100 million and i also have a gun or 2 for a fellow American Patriot. But i only have one life to give,and will give it proudly if that’s what it takes to protect the Constitution and the American way of life. PS: I will take a few of them with me for sheer!!!!

  • jeepdude911

    They can have my guns, ammo first!

  • David J. Stuehr

    I have a much better idea than the whole “cold dead hands” thing that you guys are falling back on.. Invite someone to go shooting with you. A Liberal friend, the lady from the office, your girlfriend’s sister, any guy from work who shows an interest.
    I have found that a little trigger time can cure a lot of this stuff. Reach out to friends, neighbors, etc. and also give an NRA membership or two for Christmas or Chanukka. (or Qwanzaa, what the hell.)

  • Mark

    I think that, instead of informing the libs otherwise, we should try to convince them they’re right. Won’t they be in for a big surprise?

  • ProudTexasGrandmother

    Don’t EVEn think about trying to take my guns!

    f Liberals think for ONE minute, Americans will stand by while they disarm us just prior to tyrannizing us, they are bigger fools than most thought, ….it will NOT happen, and there are Senate elections in 2 years…….i would keep that in mind Lib’s

    And it begins the war against out rights, we Now have a DICTATOR in the house and when he is finished we will all be slaves, we will no longer be CITIZENS but mere subjects.

  • ken

    What the A__hole media doesn’t understand, is that it’s not the NRA or GOA or NAGR that they need to “fear”, it’s all the Patriotic American gun owners! One election didn’t provide you with a “savior” just with a socialist muslim leader! We don’t like socialists or muslims!

  • ken

    There are some alternatives to the NRA. The GOA(gun owners of America) and NAGR(Nat’l Assoc of Gun Rights). When they came out endorsing Harry Reid for the senate, I wrote and told them they were making a mistake, they sent me a reply saying they didn’t care what I thought, that they would endorse anyone they wanted. I cut my card up, sent it back and told them where to stick it! Many of their members did likewise and they lost a lot of members. They recanted their endorsement, but never sent an apology for their crappy letter. I then joined both of the other organizations. I think any of these groups will go a long way in preserving our rights.

  • fishgod3

    You can have my gun only when it is empty and I am Dead.Sign posted on my property in Oregon,Due to the high cost of ammo replacment,NO warning shots will be fired.

  • richard

    Well we need to pay attention to the liberal government people that want to disarm us, seems like there was an englishman named george the something in the late 1700’s that had the same idea. The current government has reason to fear the armed citizen, the second (or is that the third) revolt might be just around the corner.

  • wdcraftr

    Gun control will not keep guns out of criminals hands, only out of the hands of those that need to defend themselves against those criminals with guns… Never give up, never surrender…

    • Clinger Trur

      They know that gun control will not keep guns out of criminal’s hands. They know this will increase crime, making those same clueless gun control advocates feel even more threatened and they will demand even more government to protect them. It is like putting a frog in cold water and bringing the water to a boil. The frog will die before it recognizes the danger to its freedom and life. 911 dial a prayer will never have the ability to address the 21 ft rule of police self protection. The well-known principle used in police
      training called “The 21-foot Rule”. It’s based on well-researched data
      on the reaction times of police officers. The rule states that a
      criminal with an ALREADY drawn weapon who is LESS THAN 21 FEET away from
      a police officer can attack and close the gap before the officer can
      get his gun out of the holster and shoot.

  • Mike11C

    The NRA isn’t protecting the gun owners from gun grabbers. The NRA is protecting the gun grabbers from those of us with guns who will never give them up without a fight. If guns are outlawed, this otherwise law-abiding citizen, who spent 22 years sworn to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND domestic”, will be a very angry, very well armed, and well trained outlaw. “ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ”

    Subject: Re: Obama corporate and Union support

    Every time you see your
    taxes go up or you pay 3-5 bucks for gas or your guns get confiscated, remember the people who did it to you.

    Do not forgive the
    conduct of the American Auto Industry and their union goons. Especially in
    Ohio. (you can do a google search, I was in Ohio and watched!)

    We paid billions in
    bailout money to GM and Chrysler. They then let loose Union Thugs to rip down
    Romney signs, intimidate voters, canvass Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin,
    Pennsylvania, etc for Obama.
    They did the leg work
    for Obama and they did it with our money.
    It’s like your
    neighbor’s home (Meth Lab) bursts into flames, you run and put it out, they
    then shove your fire extinguisher up your ass and laugh about it.
    GM /Chrysler and their
    UAW/Machinist Union Goons declared war on one half of America.

    All patriotic voters
    should think long and hard about who to buy their next car from. Obama Motors
    is at the bottom of my list.

    Dave Stuehr

    s or Obama Motors when they come for your guns.

  • Poodleguy

    BS!!! Our NRA will continue to stand strong & defend our 2nd Amendment plus the fact that there are millions more gun owners in America that don’t belong to the NRA (that should!!!) that will stand in the breach to stop the Hitler-like anti-Constitution illegal obamaliar administration if they ever try to disarm us!! Come n’ get ’em, if you dare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Compte de Grasse

    Hey Libtards and ØBAMA Goons, I keep all my semi-automatic rifles and pistols locked, loaded, and readily accessible. When You come to try to take them, You will receive a proper “welcome”.
