***UPDATE: NRA responds to Obama gun proposal***

A fantastic new ad by the NRA showing how opposed the media was to his idea of putting an armed guard in each school while some of these very people have armed guards in their own schools. The great point is that the media doesn’t speak for America, only the elites:

UPDATE: Below is the NRA’s response to Obama’s gun proposal:

Throughout its history, the National Rifle Association has led efforts to promote safety and responsible gun ownership. Keeping our children and society safe remains our top priority.

The NRA will continue to focus on keeping our children safe and securing our schools, fixing our broken mental health system, and prosecuting violent criminals to the fullest extent of the law. We look forward to working with Congress on a bi-partisan basis to find real solutions to protecting America’s most valuable asset – our children.

Attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation. Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy.

    The argument in England was that Now that we have The Police, nobody needs to be armed for self defense. Hey folks. A self appointed aristocracy set itself up and proceeded to disarm the public, by stealth tactics – nobody reading bills, objections summarily dismissed with platitudes, the usual lying with statistics. They get away with it here for the same reasons.
    It is now clear that what Feinstein wants is the same as what the Brits have been doing since about 1902, and she believes the same “philosophy”. Nadler’s statement that he believes “the state should have the monopoly on use of force” is that philosophy. It overthrows popular sovereignty and replaces it with aristocratic sovereignty. Obviously Bloomberg buys it, and so does Schumer. Cuomo just implements it. Frankly I am less concerned with their ideas than their tactics and strategies. We need to know where politicians stand on Nadler’s statement, and why and where do they get this unconstitutional garbage from. Force the issue. Don’t be a day late and a dollar short.

      And here’s the reality in Britain: Gun crime goes up by 89% in a decade (a 2009 article at the Daily Mail)

      Things haven’t gotten any better there, either. Violent crime is increasing all over Europe, even while it’s gone down here. Britain is the leader in violent crime stats, there, too.

    • colliemum

      One other aspect, which was shown clearly in that video from Australia scoop had up a few days ago: they take away the guns, but also cut back on the number of police officers.
      Illegal gun crime is not properly prosecuted, illegal gun owners and violent criminals get their hand slapped and are out of the clink in a year or two, if they actually ever are caught.

      This all amounts to an undeclared war against the law abiding citizens, while criminals are being left undisturbed.

      • physicsnut

        undeclared war = stealth takeover.

    • sDee

      We must always question the premise – the totalitarians and propagandists are quite skilled in framing false ones that go unchallenged.

      We have an inalienable right to bear arms. That inalienable right is the essential one to keep and free us from slavery by other men.

      The Second Amendment to the Constitution was written to prohibit a federal government from growing large enough infringe on that inalienable right. The need for this restriction on power was based on millenniums of historical evidence that such a Federal Government would eventually make such a move.

      Once we accept the premise that right to bear arms is for hunting or personal protection, we have lost.

        I just found out today that my sheriff, and the one north of us wrote letters to Biden telling him that they will not enforce further gun restrictions. It is in the news around here. I looked up my sheriff’s website and found out that they have a posse program because a lot of people requested it. After studying the works and words of Sheriff Mack, I am convinced that the real battle will be waged at the sheriffs offices across the country. Therefor, I am going to sign up for the program. I see that many sheriffs are getting on the band wagon, so I want to make sure that they have the support that they need.

    What a line! Perfect, Pithy and TRUE!

  • kong1967

    Libs want to limit the size of the clip. What was it, ten bullets?

    How will this stop a mass murderer? As in the Colorado theater shooter, he will take several guns and as many clips as needed. He plans ahead and knows what he’s going to do.

    Someone in their home does not know if or when someone will try to break into their home or what their motives are. If someone starts to break in and you grab your gun, you only have what ammo is in the gun already or what you can quickly load into it. People don’t carry extra ammo or extra guns in their pockets. Mass killers do.

    More “feel good” laws that won’t accomplish anything accept to endanger innocent civilians in their own homes.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

      Very well said buddy!!! THEY have the advantage of preparation…there is NOTHING we can do to prepare to the level of the murderer when the time comes to pass, and restricting the amount of ammunition we can put in our magazines simply tilts the scales in the murderer’s favor…

      Then again, I live in California and don’t even ASK me how many magazines I have, fully loaded at all times when I’m home!!!

    The House of Lords figured it out in 1902 – long before Frankfurt, and long before Alinsky. In fact, it is more adapted to take advantage of weaknesses in this form of government. Joyce Lee Malcolm quotes them by name. Unfortunately there is no further info on their associations or ‘philosophy’ – like whether they were fabians, or in that clique – i forget what brits call them – ‘the xxxx set’ . This is what makes them Effective Subversives – they know the system and how to play it.

  • colliemum

    That was a very good ad – taking on the supercilious, hypocritical eejits in the meejah, and showing what actual Americans do when it comes to their kids and the schools they go to.

    I wish someone would ask especially those of a more dusky pigmentation why they are so for gun control when the kids and young men of theirs are being killed and are killing with illegal guns.
    What are they doing about this?
    How is denying guns to law abiding citizens going to stop the illegal guns from reaching the hands of their own tribe?
    Ah – I forgot: they don’t dare show themselves in those inner city ghettos without their own armed gunmen, who of course have guns with more than seven or ten cartridges …

    Of course, this ad is commonsense, and we know that makes it repulsive to Democrats. They do not want to stop violence they want to control every aspect of our lives.

      Imam Obama has thrown a wrench into the very definitions of good guy, and bad guy. In his universe, Al Queda are the good guys, and Conservatives (or anyone who fights the Statist agenda) are the bad guys.

    A good article about the NRA’s “Fight of the Century” can be found at the link below.

    ===partial quote
    “The NRA sat in on a White House meeting that was sold to the public as an ‘open discussion’ about how to improve school safety.” LaPierre wrote. “But that was a dirty lie. They didn’t listen to gun owners’ concerns…they didn’t consider any real solutions on how we can keep our kids safe. Instead Barack Obama, Joe Biden and their gun ban allies in Congress only want to BLAME you, VILIFY you, BULLY you, and STRIP you of your Second Amendment freedoms.”

    LaPierre warned his members about Obama’s plan, saying: “Right now, they’re steamrolling ahead with legislation that would ban your guns, register your ammunition purchases and even force you to register the firearms you already own with Obama’s anti-gun bureaucrats.”

    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
    “Eliminate armed guards for the President, Vice-President, and their families, and establish Gun Free Zones around them
    Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.”
