Let it be known, no member in good standing of the National Rifle Association has ever been known to commit a terrorist act, a mass killing, or a drive-by shooting. If Barack Obama was serious about gun violence, he’d make all the Jihadis and gangbangers join the NRA and pay dues.
What is murder rate by members of the NRA? What is the number of NRA members who have committed murder compared to criminals to get their guns illegally off the street or through government gun-running?
Yeah, I didn’t think the Obama administration knew that answer.
From the NRA:
Once again, President Obama has chosen to engage in political rhetoric, instead of offering meaningful solutions to our nation’s pressing problems. Today’s event also represents an ongoing attempt to distract attention away from his lack of a coherent strategy to keep the American people safe from terrorist attack.
The American people do not need more emotional, condescending lectures that are completely devoid of facts. The men and women of the National Rifle Association take a back seat to no one when it comes to keeping our communities safe. But the fact is that President Obama’s proposals would not have prevented any of the horrific events he mentioned. The timing of this announcement, in the eighth and final year of his presidency, demonstrates not only political exploitation but a fundamental lack of seriousness.
The proposed executive actions are ripe for abuse by the Obama Administration, which has made no secret of its contempt for the Second Amendment. The NRA will continue to fight to protect the fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms as guaranteed under our Constitution. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be harassed or intimidated for engaging in lawful, constitutionally-protected activity – nor will we allow them to become scapegoats for President Obama’s failed policies.
What do you think of the NRA response? Was it powerful enough? What should they do to offset Obama’s no meat executive order on gun control?
