The N.R.A. Wins Again

Mar 20, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.newyorker.com

After Sandy Hook, after twenty children were shot and killed at a place where they should have been safe from all harm, there was some optimism among supporters of gun control: perhaps now, finally, both Democrats and Republicans could see the light - and the suffering - and revive the assault-weapons ban.

See the light? Are you kidding? The 'assault' weapons ban had no detectable impact on reduced gun crimes during the previous law's period. That's according to the Justice Department and CDC.

There are Americans composed of democrats, republicans and independents.... As well as other patriots.

The good thing is, we see the foe for what he is,
A cowardly exploitive demonizing manipulative, lying, machiavelli .....

Any port in a storm can be twisted for the self made crisis....

It's the demons way.

Yes, good for the NRA and I am going to double up on my contributions this year and next to help remind our elected officials that while they may have forgot about our rights under the second amendment but we have not.

Assault weapons also have no detectable rationale for being in civilian hands.

In the Sandy Hook tragedy, each child killed was shot 11 times. The shooter may have been psychotic, but his weapons helped him be a more efficient psychotic.

Your so-called "rights" be damned! The deaths of little kids and the need for public safety trump your gun crazy desires. To hell with the NRA and its deranged leaders!

Now the facts are out. The Sandy Hook tragedy had nothing to do with ‘assault style weapons’. Bans on a specific type of weapon would have had no effect on the outcome of this incident. Sadly, knowledge of these facts, awareness that a certain or specific type of weapon had nothing to do with this tragedy is not slowing down the anti-gun hysteria and hyperbole. Worse, while all the attention is focused on this red herring, the real cause of this and so many other tragedies continues to go unaddressed.

The simple truth is the slaughter of innocents in Sandy Hook had nothing to do with assault weapons and everything to do with mentally unbalanced people. I say ‘people’ and not ‘a person’ because there are serious questions about the mother of the shooter. Not because she owned so many guns but because she kept them in a home with a son whom she knew to be troubled.

Guns should not be in the huands of nutballs raised on drugs and always claim the victim routine.

The American people will always stand strong against tyranny. Obama, and his Homeland Security Army, have frightened Americans to the gun shops, for new, and bigger, and better guns, and ammo. Democrats always pretend they would never take your gun, but as soon as they are sworn in they begin looking for ways to grab the guns. They would have more credibility if they would disarm their ghetto mongrels first. But they would never honor a gun control law. So neither will the law abiding.

If each member of the NRA recruits one new member the NRA will recoup all the money they have spent fighting the Democrats on this gun grab they just lost. There were a couple of people that works for my husband who didn't have guns. They begin discussing the 2nd amendment at lunch time, and one has already bought a handgun, and the other one is deciding what he needs. They never thought of owning a gun before the President, was reelected, and the Democrats picked up seats in the House, and held the Senate last November. They have to Grandfather in the guns we have at the time of any new legislation.
