CCRKBA’s Gottlieb to Democrats on revised Disclose Act exemption: 'Pound sand'
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
... "Late Thursday, in an effort to mollify smaller gun rights and other groups, the exemption threshold was lowered to include organizations with 500,000 members. By the oddest of coincidences – if one believes in such things – that move came in the hours after Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the [CCRKBA], issued a statement on the Disclose Act that mentioned his group has 650,000 members and supporters. ..."

"Advised of the change, an audibly disgusted Gottlieb reacted via telephone: 'Even though we may now be exempted, we still oppose the bill.' Desperate Democrats can, in his opinion, 'pound sand.' Lowering the bar to quell the firestorm, he indicated, was simply insult added to injury." ...

"As seems inevitable in the competition for dwindling news consumers, the public debate is colored each year by the somber annual memorials of the Columbine and Virginia Tech massacres."

"One of my favorite stops on my teaching tour every year is the Sand Burr Gun Ranch in Rochester, Indiana. The facility is a shooting park with rustic classroom, five ranges, and a gun shop that makes you feel as if you’ve taken a time machine back to the 1950s. Founder Denny Reichard does his gunsmithing there, doing action smoothing work that’s as good as you’ll find anywhere in the world."

"The resident teaching crew, for the most part, are gun geezers, and they carry classic Smith & Wesson large caliber revolvers. Well, 'when in Rome…' For the first of the two classes I taught in June, I alternated between two Model 625 S&W revolvers, chambered for the .45 Auto ... Denny’s trademark gun is a 6" barrel S&W .44 Magnum ...

"Mills is a lifetime member of the NRA ... and has been a member of the NRA's 76-member Board of Directors since 2009. The Executive Committee is made up of 21 members from the Board of Directors and is responsible for the NRA's emergent issues arising between the regular sessions of the Board which meets just three times per year."

"Despite his board membership and lifetime of service, Mills will not receive the NRA’s endorsement in the Republican Primary for governor. Incumbents who meet the NRA’s criteria on Second Amendment issues are endorsed regardless of who else is in the race ..." ...

"In June 1998, Elena Kagan helped rework some talking points written by White House staffers for President Clinton about the National Rifle Association in order to soften his tone and praise the NRA's members."

"The comments were for a planned Clinton question-and-answer session with the NRA, one week after actor Charlton Heston took the helm of the massive organization. TPMDC is reviewing thousands of emails released today in advance of Kagan's Supreme Court confirmation hearings and a White House source pointed us to this section." ...
 

Did Kagan Compare the NRA with the KKK

"It has become clear that Elena Kagan, Obama's most recent Supreme Court nominee, is no friend of gun rights, to say the least. While clerking for Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall in 1987, she wrote the judge that she was 'not sympathetic' to a Second Amendment–based challenge to the D.C. gun ban. While serving in the Clinton administration, she wrote a memo that 'paved the way for an executive order banning dozens of semiautomatic weapons,' according to the L.A. Times."

"And National Review has learned that in 1996, Kagan apparently tied the NRA to the KKK — yes, the KKK — while debating the Clinton administration’s position on a bill." ...

"And National Review has learned that in 1996, Kagan apparently tied the NRA to the KKK — yes, the KKK — while debating the Clinton administration's position on a bill."

"Parents and families of the victims of the recent deadly DC mass shooting went to Capitol Hill Friday to deliver a message: No More Guns. They are demanding tougher gun laws in their neighborhoods. Not weaker ones."

"And they asked for help in fighting McCain's 'Second Amendment Enforcement Bill.'"

The association has sorely disappointed me through the years by its focus on only Second Amendment rights, at the expense of the rest of the Constitution.

"A Firestorm was ignited this week when it was announced that House Democrats had carved out an exemption for the [NRA] in proposed new federal campaign law legislation and that NRA was no longer going to oppose the bill."

"The new campaign legislation is a response to the recent Supreme Court decision in Citizens United ... The proposed legislation ... would tightly regulate the political speech of any corporation (most non-profits and political organizations are corporations) and require extensive record-keeping and public disclosure of contributors names. Such disclosure is particularly hard on gun rights organizations as our members tend to be vehemently opposed to having their names put on lists ..." ...

"Congressional Democrats, to avert a clash with the National Rifle Association, have crafted a blatantly unfair amendment to an already cynical and probably unconstitutional bill regulating political discourse. The amendment, crafted by Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., exempts a handful of the most powerful lobbies -- including the NRA -- from proposed burdensome disclosure requirements."

"It's a shameful moment for the House of Representatives -- especially the Democratic majority, and particularly Van Hollen. On the right, though, the ire is mostly aimed at the NRA for agreeing to drop its opposition to the bill because of the carveout."

"But the facts paint an ambiguous picture as far as the NRA's culpability." ...

"The National Rifle Association is taking fire from its conservative brethren for withdrawing its opposition to a campaign-finance bill in exchange for an exemption."

"The debate surrounds the Disclose Act, which would impose new reporting requirements on companies, unions and other groups involved in political campaigning. Democrats are pushing it in response to a controversial January Supreme Court ruling that unraveled much of the legal apparatus governing such politicking."

"Democrats, viewing the NRA's opposition as an obstacle to the bill's passage, agreed that certain large groups of long standing—the NRA prominent among them—would be exempt. Now the NRA is no longer fighting the measure."

"In their attempt to mitigate negative election-year fallout from the Supreme Court's recent ruling in favor of rights of free speech for everyone in Citizens United, Democrats Senator Charles Schumer (New York) and Representative Chris Van Hollen (Maryland) proposed legislation entitled 'Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections,' or DISCLOSE."

"Schumer was very clear that DISCLOSE was carefully crafted to 'embarrass companies [inclined to get involved in the fall elections] out of exercising those rights,' according to Kim Strassel in the Wall Street Journal. The bill will make companies 'think twice', [Schumer] rejoiced. 'The deterrent effect should not be underestimated.' ..." [emphasis added] ...

Submitter's Note: To all those who say that gun civil rights activists are wrong in asserting that a disdain for the Second Amendment indicates disdain for them all, here we have Chuckles Schumer explicitly writing legislation designed to discourage people from exercising their rights, and rejoicing in the fact!

"In the findings portion of the bill, they note that in January of this year, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned legislation 'restricting the ability of corporations and labor unions to spend unlimited funds from their general treasury accounts to influence the outcome of elections.' This is their second attempt at it."

"Hatched over the last few weeks by Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) with backing from House Democratic leaders and the White House, it was a legislative maneuver rich with the kind of irony that often goes unremarked in Washington — a classic backroom special interest deal to help pass a bill that would require heightened disclosure of special interest spending on campaign ads."

"The idea was to neutralize opposition to tough new campaign spending rules from one particularly powerful special interest group, the [NRA], by exempting it as well as the left-leaning Sierra Club ... from certain disclosure requirements in the bill. But while the maneuver was effective in getting the NRA to back down, the deal sparked a backlash ..." ...

"It's no surprise to political realists that once Sharron Angle secured the Republican nomination for the United States Senate in Nevada as a Tea Party insurgent, she would soften some of her most pugnacious stances. Sure enough, she is toning down her calls for abolishing the energy and education departments, phasing out Social Security and repealing the income tax."

"But Ms. Angle has shown no inclination to explain or alter her most alarming rhetoric — her repeated references to 'Second Amendment remedies' ... Her statements across the past six months — when she was winning national attention dishing right-wing polemics — were some of the most offensive and inciteful to be heard in this year’s welter of extremist alarums." ...

"But we've learned there have been two incidents of handguns accidentally being discharged in the cockpit and a third during training." ...

"'There have been several accidental discharges related to the holster and procedures involved where a lock has caused the firearm to discharge,' said Sevier. 'Not the operator's finger or anything like that.'" ...
