NRA scoring on ‘anti-gun amendments’ may be too little too late

... "Legislative smoke and mirrors notwithstanding, the one truly common sense demand that should be non-negotiable by those who are really interested in discouraging mass shootings is denying the one thing perpetrators crave above all else: Success. Unless and until gun owners demand and achieve an end to phony 'gun-free' zones, there is nothing standing in the way of the next killer -- and there will be a next one." ...

"Reader dmac writes:

Usually, gun related stories on CNN are aggravating due to their incompleteness and/or use of skewed statistics. This piece, 'Why the NRA fights background checks', actually angers me because of the implications Mr. Donohue makes about those who work in in firearms industry. Some of those people are personal friends of mine and to imply that all they care about is bottom line profit, that they are not only okay with criminals and the mentally ill having guns, but are down right giddy about it!? Them’s fightin’ words . . ." ...

"The administration and their minions have been assiduous Fudd-fluffers ever since Sandy Hook, furiously trying to recruit anyone who calls himself a hunter to their side of the gun control debate. ... And to hear 'Double Barrel' Joe Biden and others tell it, hunters are mostly good with Barack’s civilian disarmament push — as long as it doesn’t affect their bolt action rifles and double-barrelled smooth bores. Well, some of that actually turned out to be a big fetid pile of manufactured moose dung. Whatever the cause, though, the public seems to be very much on board with hunting. Still. At least, that’s what the latest National Shooting Sports Foundation survey says . . ." ...

"To hear the National Rifle Association tell it, the biggest problem with the bipartisan agreement to expand criminal background checks is what it doesn’t propose to do. 'I think what they’ll do is turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people,' warns Wayne LaPierre, the group’s executive vice president, on Fox News Sunday.

"Vice President Joe Biden this morning said that the 'cultural norm' about gun ownership has changed, arguing that many people buy guns, not for protection or hunting, but because 'it’s like driving a Ferrari.'"

"'It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters,' Biden said on MSNBC. 'There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals now who, I don’t know what the numbers are, that never hunt at all but they own guns for one of two reasons: self protection or they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range.'"

"'They like the way it feels. You know, it’s like driving a Ferrari,' he said, raising his arms as if shooting a gun." ...

"Early Sunday morning, April 7, in Lumberton, Texas three robbers kidnapped and robbed one woman, but when they moved on to rob two more women they were met with an unexpected surprise. According to a report by 12 News Now, one of the would-be victims brought their robbing spree to a halt when she shot one of them."

"The three robbers, identified as 21-year-old Scott Willis, Jr., 21-year-old Malik Washington, and 21-year-old Ariel Malveaux, all of Beaumont, have apparently been targeting women as victims of robberies since last month." ...

"'Quizhpe said he didn’t know he had been shot until his brother-in-law had chased the robbers out of the store with a fire extinguisher and Quizhpe was on the phone calling police. 'I felt something warm down my leg,' he said. 'I lost about a pint of blood.' That’s Luis Quizhpe, the man with the bat doing his best to fend off two armed robbers shooting at him in his Chicago store. Mayor Rahm and Superintendent McCarthy would no doubt have advised Quizhpe to just empty the till, give the two walking pieces of excrement what they wanted and they’d be on their way. Except, as the video reveals, the gunman in the grey hoodie fired at least one shot at the store owner before he even picked up his Louisville Slugger . . ." ...

"On Tuesday, Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee and friends introduced four new gun control bills. It’s the usual farrago of firearms fail: bans on modern sporting rifles and standard capacity ammunition magazines, increased penalties for not reporting lost or stolen firearms, etc. To ensure we win the race to the bottom in the post-Newtownian disarmament derby, one of the bills removes the right of cities and towns to issue concealed carry permits. That power would be vested solely in the Attorney General ... In direct contravention of the State Constitution, the bill would transform RI from 'shall issue' to 'may issue.' Anyway, I went to see the immediate impact of all this on my local gun store . . ." ...

"I write today to urge you to not broadcast NASCAR’s NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on April 13th. This race ... is going to take place during the Senate’s consideration of legislation to reduce gun violence. The race not only brings national attention to an organization that has been the face of one side of this heated debate, it also features the live shooting of guns at the end of the race. This celebration of guns is inappropriate in the immediate wake of the Newtown massacre. But most importantly, broadcasting this race ... sends a harmful signal to the families affected by gun violence, as well as the millions of Americans who support sensible gun control measures and enjoy your sports programming . . ." ...

"U.S. Representative Steve Israel (D-NY) is as enthusiastic a pusher of oppressive gun laws as one would expect from a New York Democrat. Israel, though, is something of a specialist. The gun issue that really claims to worry about, bizarrely, is the idea that 3-D printing technology will not only bypass 'gun control' laws, by empowering people to produce guns on their own with the click of a mouse, but that these guns, being composed of plastic, will not be detectable by airport scanning equipment." ...

"'So what does a traitor look like?'"

"That is a very good question."

"After all, a traitor is different than an enemy. An enemy declares himself and opposes you openly. But in order to become a traitor, someone first needs to enjoy your trust."

"Those of us in the gun rights community have plenty of enemies … people who have openly declared war on the Second Amendment and the Constitution. Heck … practically every Democrat in the country seems to have signed up for a frontal assault on gun owners."

"But to be betrayed by one of our own is not a common occurrence and when it happens, it never fails to hurt."

"Late last January, a Fox commentator noted that CNN had turned into a 24/7 'gun control' telethon. And now, on the evening of April 9, I sit here watching what CNN has called a two-day special devoted to exactly that topic.

It is focusing on background checks. No surprise: the gun prohibition movement nationwide has lasered in on the exact same thing. They’ve been doing it for a while, ever since they realized that both the 'assault weapon ban' and the 'high capacity magazine ban' are being increasingly recognized as illogical and meaningless…as, indeed, they were proven to be the last time they were enacted." ...
