Statement From the National Rifle Association of America Regarding Today's White House Task Force Meeting
Fairfax, Va. The National Rifle Association of America is made up of over 4 million moms and dads, daughters and sons, who are involved in the national conversation about how to prevent a tragedy like Newtown from ever happening again. We attended today's White House meeting to discuss how to keep our children safe and were prepared to have a meaningful conversation about school safety, mental health issues, the marketing of violence to our kids and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.
We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be prejudged, this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners - honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen. Instead, we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works - and what does not.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. Four million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services. Be sure to follow the NRA on Facebook at www.facebook.com/NationalRifleAssociation and on Twitter @NRA.
No surprises here. The perps are pounding harder on the door.
I don’t think the libtards are prepared for what’s gonna happen when they try to do this.
I hate it for those jack-booted thugs that are on the business end of this...
It is a crime that there are 80 million gun owners in this country and only 4 million belong to the NRA. JOIN NOW!
Another liberal Task Farce. Well, well.
The us against them mentality this administration has fostered will backfire on them. People will not tolerate unilateral demands/decisions by elected officials. Forcing agendas (Obamacare) on people will get them thrown right back. Even the whimpering GOP will finally (I hope) say enough is enough.
Is the acquisition of millions of rounds of hollow point bullets some sort of preparedness?
Well, they sat and listened to slow joe. Where’s lunch.
FU Joe and FU Obama. You want to disarm the Nation. You are the reason the Nation needs to be armed. FU
The departments are not liberal. The useful idiots that vote for them are.
Right on, right on!
I joined today and so did my son.
Would 4 million more members make a difference? How about 40 million? How would it be any different?
PS. I am a member already.
Liberals support abortion. They have repeatedly proven that they don’t care about the safety and security of the nations children.
An area LEO of a large city not far from me was eating at the table next to me and a friend at lunch today.
As he got up to leave, I politely asked him if he had heard of a LEO survey asking if they would participate in gun confiscation of legal gun owners, and if he would himself participate in same.
Very discreetly, with a grin on his face, he said he had not heard of such a survey, but he “could fully understand why many LEO’s would not support such confiscation.”
They need to go on offense with full page ads, infomercials, whatever they can to counter the liberal bias the average non-gun owner is getting from the MSM and this administration.
What are they saving the money for? SPEND IT! If not now - when?
Yes I think a hundred million in dues would make a difference.
I did for 30 some years and they used my dues to fund democRats in my state in 2010.
I will rejoin when they call for armed resistance to this illegitimate government.
I am thinking of holding membership drives this summer by buying booths at local fairs and craft shows.
I have heard there are many anti-gun LEO’s. Also that many never carry a gun outside of work. That many wouldn’t carry at work if they didn’t have to. That most never practice with their weapons and will only shoot when directed to for job qualification purposes. Are these truths or BS?
I hope it matters by this summer...
