The Left’s Renewed Assault on the NRA
FrontPageMag.com ^ | December 18, 2012 | Joseph Klein

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 Left’s 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 can’t 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 NRA’s 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.

The media has decided one of the Left's most effective political foes is at fault for the massacre of those children.

Who's surprised.

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.

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.

Names.

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.

Geoffrey Fieger just ran an ad on WJR here in the Detroit area calling for more gun control

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.....

There are a number of FReepers here who seem to be aligned with the same plan.........

In fact, this thread was started yesterday.....

It would seem that a demonicRat named John Cobarruvias may be a domestic terrorist.

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.

***These zealots blamed the NRA for the shooting.***

The NRA was also blamed for the death of Bobby Kennedy back in 1968.

This is how is started in 1938 - are we repeating history in 2013?

Apparently you are hearing things for I haven't spoken to you.

Can pro 2nd Amendment candidates be liberal Democrats?
