Former general David Petraeus is founding a new group to take away your gun rights!!
Retired U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, who has long resisted calls to run for political office, is teaming up with retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly to create a new group urging greater gun control.
The two announced on Friday that they were launching Veterans Coalition for Common Sense to encourage elected leaders to “do more to prevent gun tragedies.” The group will feature veterans from every branch of the military who are urging lawmakers to toughen gun laws, the organization said in a news release.
“As service members, each of us swore an oath to protect our Constitution and the homeland. Now we’re asking our leaders to do more to protect our rights and save lives,” said Kelly, the husband of former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and co-founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a group that advocates for tougher gun laws.
There was a conspiracy theory that Petraeus was being blackmailed by Obama with some kind of damning information, but if he’s for gun control, I’m doubting he was ever really very conservative. Remember when he was being floated as a possible 2012 presidential candidate??!?!
OR…. Obama is blackmailing him to be against gun control too!!! How dastardly!! Also, everything is awful.
