  • GOA Chides Rep. Maloney for Foolish Comments

    07/17/2014 4:08:46 PM PDT · by Q-ManRN · 5 replies
    Dun Owners of America ^ | July 17, 2014 | Erlich Pratt
    Rep. Maloney has called for Capitol Hill law enforcement to investigate GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt for saying that the Second Amendment is “for restraining tyrannical tendencies in government … especially those in the liberal, tyrannical end of the spectrum.”alt Maloney then falsely claims that Pratt was “glad” about actual threats that were made against her personally. All of this stems from the recent hit piece by Rolling Stone on Second Amendment groups -- an edition which has prompted pro-gun websites, like The Truth About Guns, to describe the articles about GOA and NRA as being “riddled with misinformation, mischaracterization...
  • CNN’s Piers Morgan, talking himself into trouble

    Jonathan Wald has a difficult job. He’s executive producer of Piers Morgan’s show on CNN, a set of duties that include taming a volatile and sometimes rude television personality. In an “extract” from his new book “Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God and George Clooney” published in the Guardian, Morgan describes an incident when Wald’s counsel came into play. . . .

    While many decry the way Alex Jones presented his argument on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight recently, none can argue with the balance and calm approach, head of Gun Owners of America, Larry Pratt presented. Pratt skillfully and methodically destroyed Piers Morgans ridiculous pro-communist gun-control argument piece-by-piece, discrediting his claims that the UK, a country with the highest violent crime rate in Europe, was made safe by gun control.
  • WHERE IS ROMNEY’S GUN?: 2nd Amendment Groups Concerned About His Candidacy

    The truest of conservative political pundits argue that, as a Presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is just Obama in a Reagan suit—and, thus, even as the longstanding frontrunner in the primary, he can’t seem to close the deal on getting the nomination. To this point, most of the critical attention he’s receiving has to do with his record on social issues. But, as Larry Pratt, executive director of the Gun Owners of America (GOA), points out, Romney’s moderate inclinations and flip-flopping habits are converging on the conservative staple issue of gun rights—leaving folks like Pratt very concerned. In...

    GUN DEBATE - As President Obama travels the country to promote his ideas about health care reform, he has been met with hearty debate. But he's also been met with something unexpected, gun-toting citizens who seem to be making a statement about more than just health policy. Are these citizens merely expressing their second amendment rights or do they present a dangerous provocation? We asked two experts for their take. Opinion contributed by Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America. Click here for Paul Helmke's opposing view. SPRINGFIELD, Va. (OPINION) From New Hampshire to Arizona, Americans openly carrying...

    TONIGHT AT 9 ET on THE ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW Own a gun? You're probably among most gun owners who are concerned about what the Barack Obama presidency will mean for our 2nd Amendment protections. Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America (GOA), shares your concern. Of particular interest is Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s choice for Attorney General. Pratt does not consider Holder to be in support of the second amendment. "The President's choice for U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, is an anti-gun extremist who has assailed gun owners since his days in the Bill Clinton administration."BANG! Holder...

    I have compiled (quite easily, I might add) a list of murders and attempted murders carried out by Muslims acting on the basis of what the founder of Islam taught them. Convinced that they will go to heaven if they die killing infidels who Mohammed taught his followers to hate, some Muslims don’t bother joining al Qaeda or some other organized band of thugs. They get so filled with hatred from hearing Islamic sermons and visiting jihadi web sites that they decide to become freelance Jihadis. The condition is recognizable and has been labeled Sudden Jihad Syndrome (SJS) — although...

    The Senate has been a socialist stronghold in Washington. It controls the nomination of judges, who all too frequently set new policy in this country by following international standards, rather than abiding by our own Constitution. Any judge known to be pro-Second Amendment will be put on the do-not-confirm list by liberal senators such as Edward Kennedy (D-MA), who until now have been able to control the nomination process. This blacklist is not conjecture. It is a scandalous fact that was revealed when a Republican aide discovered opposition memos detailing the entire strategy. Unfortunately, Republican Senators such as Orrin Hatch...

    The travails of Manny Miranda show clearly the proposition that the courts are in the business of legislating. Any claims that judicial orders and decisions are part of the rule of law are mostly pretense. Judges are simply politicians wrapped in black robes and given the luxury of legislating without accountability. Until recently, Miranda, an attorney, was serving as chief counsel to Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN), Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate. Before that, Miranda had served as counsel to Sen. Orrin Hatch on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. While working at the Committee, a staffer brought to Miranda's attention...

    In a socialist society increasingly suffering from the politics of envy, filing “Hail Mary” lawsuits for outrageous awards is becoming as popular as playing the lottery and voting for a living. The theory seems to be that if something bad happens to me, somebody should pay me for my suffering, even if they had nothing to do with the loss I suffered. People who live in flood plains and on beachfronts rely on the government sticking its hands in the pockets of taxpayers to bail them out from weather-related losses. This is called insurance, but it confuses real insurance, which...

One senator slips a new gun ban into an omnibus spending bill in the middle of the night. Another senator filibusters the President's judicial nominations.

    Near the Canadian border in Boundary County, Idaho during August of 1992, the federal government went berserk. At Ruby Ridge Randy Weaver suffered the loss of his wife and son -- neither of whom had committed a crime -- to government agents. The feds brought about an even worse debacle in Waco the next year, and other less breathtaking abuses of power have occurred with disturbing frequency. Both tragedies stemmed from enforcement of unconstitutional laws for alleged crimes that had harmed no one. Randy Weaver, in collaboration with Sheriff Richard Mack, has taken a look back at the ten years...
  • O'Reilly displays his total ignorance on "assault" weapons ban. (VANITY-Re;Last nights show)

    I turn on O'Reilly last night to see what he's talking about. I normally enjoy about 50% of the show and believe he's just too arrogant for his actual knowledge. So he has this gun advocate PRATT on talking about algor. The assault weapons ban comes up and O'Reilly says: "I support the assault weapons ban, people don't need bazookas or machine guns" So I figure this guy Pratt will immediately confront him with something like, "Well O'Reilly, you just showed America just how stupid you are and displayed your total non-undertanding of this issue.......and more" But nothing from Pratt,...

    Washington DC Gun Ban A Deadly Failure by Larry Pratt The official website of the Metropolitan Police Department of Washington DC says, among other things, that the MPD "protects District residents from crime, fear of crime, and general disorder and establishes trust and respect within the community." Why turn to the Comedy Channel when you can get lines like this for free? How bad is crime in our Nation's capital? It's so bad that even the far-left Washington Post has repeatedly complained about it. In a recent editorial (1/11/03), the Post says: "The District of Columbia closed out 2002 with...

    As columnist Paul Craig Roberts has put it, "Law, once a shield of the innocent, is now a weapon in the hands of government." Roberts is referring to a long and dangerous trend to expand the concept of crime to actions and non-actions in which no individual is harmed or threatened with harm. In our time one can be convicted of a felony and put in jail for killing a turtle, chopping down a tree, draining a swamp, polluting a body of water, and generally not doing everything that some bureaucrat says you have to do. When we study socialist...
