Skip to comments.The Left’s Renewed Assault on the NRA
Posted on 12/18/2012 12:13:00 PM PST by Perseverando
While much of the country mourns the horrific death of the 26 children and adults murdered at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut at the hands of an alleged mentally unstable individual who also killed his mother, the Left lost no time in shamelessly exploiting the tragedy. In fact, Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler (NY) used the word exploit in urging President Obama to take advantage of the Newtown massacre to prod Congress into passing stronger gun control legislation.
The Lefts avowed goal is to use what happened to galvanize support for cutting the Second Amendment into pieces and disarm law-abiding Americans. To accomplish that purpose, they are committed to discrediting and destroying the National Rifle Association.
Some unhinged leftists have taken to social media to literally call for NRA President David Keene and NRA members to be shot.
For those leftists who would not go quite that far, they have called for an all-out political war to take down the NRA. For example, in a clarion call to its readers, the progressive Daily Kos proclaimed:
After Connecticut, we cant stay silent and just hope that something like it will never happen again. We have to stand up to the political power of the NRA, and we have to do it right now while their support is weakest.
CREDO, a progressive group, organized a march on NRA headquarters in Washington, D.C. These zealots blamed the NRA for the shooting. To stop the senseless killing we must first stop the NRA, they said in announcing their march. Evidently, these progressives have as little regard for the NRAs constitutional right to petition their government under the First Amendment as they do for the right of individuals to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment.

A couple of Democrat politicians called for the shooting of NRA members. Where’s the outrage over that??!!
No words better than from ‘The man , Himself’ :”You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” - Rahm Emanuel
samson killed ten thousand people with the jaw bone of an ass,maybe it’s time to outlaw ass bones.
That sounds like a direct threat. Have any NRA members decided to kill Democrats in order to protect themselves?
If we just outlawed asses, most of the politicians in Washington would be unemployed.
“In response to the threats received from certain members of the Democrat party, we respond with.... BRING IT.”
What do you know. Elections do have consequences.
I got news for the left... the NRA is grassroots. Oppose it at your peril.
Hard to feel sorry for the National Rino Association.
They gave giant piles of money to liberal Democrats and now it’s coming back to bite them.
We need names.
If these 'unhinged leftists' are real, they are engaged in terrorism and making terrorist threats.
Both of those acts are illegal in most of these United States.
Not surprising that the POS himself carries a concealed weapon........
As a side note, right before Lansing passed the RTW bill last week, he ran another personally financed ad condeming Republicans and business in general and calling them greedy.....
Rick Snyder is back to his old self and vetoed the gun bill today.
Here’s your bandwagon, jump on it.........
And no high ranking democrats denouncing this “extreme rhetoric”...
Take your lib anti-NRA hatred and shove it, faux 2nd Amendment supporter.
There are a number of FReepers here who seem to be aligned with the same plan.........
In fact, this thread was started yesterday.....
"Never let a crisis go to waste".
- Rahm Emmanuel
Yea, I know...That's a real slap in the fact to folks like me who supported him, especially after he screwed us retirees by taxing our pensions.
FWIW I accepted the taxes but I won't accept this veto......
Congress better stop this nonsense dead in its tracks.
Frankly, if the GOP fails to stop it, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM NEEDS TO BE VOTED OUT, even if it means the entire congress and senate end up being nothing but damn democrats....
People have been calling this the Reichstag fire, but I don’t think that’s a fitting description. I think Kristallnacht is more fitting.
Well, don’t look, but the NRA is now throwing in the towel.
***These zealots blamed the NRA for the shooting.***
The NRA was also blamed for the death of Bobby Kennedy back in 1968.
I’m sorry - are you talking about the same group that gave lots of money to liberal Democrats?
Apparently you are hearing things for I haven't spoken to you.
Can pro 2nd Amendment candidates be liberal Democrats?
