  • The History Of Gun Control, Part 2 (How The 1968 Gun Control Act Transformed The NRA Alert)

    Until Lyndon Johnson came to the White House in 1962 following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, gun control was simply not a national issue. There were no significant federal gun control laws on the books, and the NRA was a shooter's organization that intentionally shied away from any political involvement. All of that changed with the 1968 assassinations of Sen. Robert Kennedy and civil rights leader Martin Luther King. In the civil unrest that followed, the media found a new whipping boy – America's gun owners. The media blitz against gun rights was unprecedented and became the driving...
  • The History Of Gun Control Part I (Sandy Froman On The Origins Of The Gun Control Fraud Alert)

    Philosopher George Santayana said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. It's true. One of the reasons to study history is to avoid repeating past mistakes. When it comes to freedom, we cannot afford to forget the lessons of the past. So you and I need to know the history of gun control, because history teaches us there is a terrible price to pay when we lose our right to keep and bear arms. Over 200 years ago, when the Founding Fathers drafted the Second Amendment, no one questioned the need for private gun ownership....
  • The Making Of A Gun Believer (Sandy Froman On How She Became A Gun Rights Activist- MUST READ Alert)

    I'm the last person you would ever expect to own a gun, let alone become a gun rights activist. I'm often asked how a Jewish woman, a native of San Francisco and a graduate of Stanford and Harvard Law became president of the NRA. My story is not unique but it may remind us, around this Memorial Day, of the value of the right to own a firearm, and it may help you explain that right to someone else. It was a night in 1982 when I was living alone in suburban Los Angeles. At about 3 a.m., I awoke...
  • Gun Rights And Homeschooling Parallels (Sandy Froman: Liberals Hate Freedom Of Choice Alert)

    Two things that those on the far left who support big government cannot abide by are private gun ownership and homeschooling – and largely for the same reason. I know it may sound surprising, and perhaps some people might roll their eyes and say former NRA Presidents must feel an uncontrollable urge to think everything should somehow equate to supporting gun rights. But it's a fair statement to say those on the liberal end of the spectrum oppose both gun ownership and homeschooling for the same reason: There are core values in common between gun ownership and homeschooling. These commonalities...

    The forward ^ | 8/19/05 | Josh Richman
    OAKLAND, Calif. — Guns were not a big deal in Sandy Froman's life — until an intruder tried to break into her Los Angeles apartment one night about 25 years ago. Now she is the first Jewish person and only the second woman to serve as president of the National Rifle Association. "I think the traditional belief on the part of most people is that Jews tend to be extremely liberal and liberals tend to be anti-gun," Froman told the Forward. Bucking such stereotypes, Froman, a 56-year-old lawyer from Tucson, Ariz., assumed the top NRA post earlier this year. Wayne...
  • Shoot It, Sister! - (why an armed citizenry is the best solution for reducing crime!)

    Shoot It, Sister! Just saw Sandy Froman speak. For those of you who don't know, that's Sandy Froman-- a Jewish native of San Francisco, graduate of Stanford undergrad and Harvard law, and President of the NRA. She said she gets this reaction a lot: "What's a nice girl like you doing involved with guns?" And she admits she might not have been involved with guns had a 3 a.m. break-in not forced her to get involved. Froman was a 20-something lawyer in L.A. when she woke up to a strange noise at her front door. She looked through the peephole...

    Sandy Froman believes America's civil rights are not being protected It's the most powerful pro-gun lobbying organization in the nation and a Tucson woman is poised to become its leader. In April 2005, the National Rifle Association will swear in Sandy Froman as its president. Froman will succeed Charlton Heston, the actor-turned-activist whose "from my cold dead hands" anti-gun-control slogan defined his tenure as NRA president. Heston suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Froman was 30 years old when she picked up her first gun, as a means of self-protection after an attempted home invasion. As president of the N.R.A., Froman...
