Since Sandy Hook, 250,000 Americans have joined the NRA







TPMMUCKRAKER


In an email sent to National Rifle Association members on Thursday, the head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) warned that politicians in Washington D.C. were “closing in fast on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”
“President Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians are on an all-out crusade to pass new laws that would: BAN tens of millions of rifles, shotguns and handguns…make it more difficult, expensive, and in some cases, ILLEGAL for you to purchase ammunition…and even FORCE you to register your firearms with the federal government,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox wrote in the email. “Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and ‘buyback’ program - where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!”
The NRA-ILA is the lobbying arm of the NRA. Cox’s email came a day after President Obama announced 23 executive actions he plans to take to reduce gun violence in response to the massacre in Newtown, Conn. last month. Neither confiscation nor buybacks were on Obama’s list, nor were they part of the sweeping legislative proposals the President made on the subject.
“[T]he fact is, despite their statements, the main goal of the gun banners in Congress is not to make schools safer, but to ban your guns and abolish every last sacred right you have under the Second Amendment..until they reduce your freedom to ashes,” Cox wrote.
The email was also a fundraising pitch. It warned that President Obama “recently pledged to raise $20 million to ram his gun ban agenda through Congress,” and reminded members that the President has “plenty of rich, gun-hating friends in Hollywood, along with anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who will shower him with the money he needs to strip you of your gun rights.”
“So please, whatever you can afford to give NRA-ILA right now, I need you to do it,” Cox wrote. “Whether it’s as little as $10, or as much as $150 or more, every single dollar will go toward winning this once-in-a-generation battle to save our Second Amendment freedom. AND EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR YOU GIVE TODAY COUNTS!”
Read the full text of the email here:
There are political fires raging across Capitol Hill right now and they’re closing in fast on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
President Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians are on an all-out crusade to pass new laws that would: BAN tens of millions of rifles, shotguns and handguns…make it more difficult, expensive, and in some cases, ILLEGAL for you to purchase ammunition…and even FORCE you to register your firearms with the federal government.
Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and “buyback” program - where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!

NONE of this would have the slightest impact on making our children, our homes, or our communities safer. And that’s sad, because now more than ever, we need our elected officials to take serious steps toward improving public safety… particularly in our nation’s schools.
But the fact is, despite their statements, the main goal of the gun banners in Congress is not to make schools safer, but to ban your guns and abolish every last sacred right you have under the Second Amendment..until they reduce your freedom to ashes.

Your NRA-ILA is fighting every hour of every day to hold the line, but there is no way we can win without your full and active participation RIGHT NOW.

President Barack Obama recently pledged to raise $20 million to ram his gun ban agenda through Congress. And Obama’s got plenty of rich, gun-hating friends in Hollywood, along with anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who will shower him with the money he needs to strip you of your gun rights.

I don’t have friends like that. I’ve got something much better…YOU. You know what’s at stake. You love your freedom and your country, and I know you’re willing to STAND AND FIGHT to save both of them.
So please, whatever you can afford to give NRA-ILA right now, I need you to do it.

Whether it’s as little as $10, or as much as $150 or more, every single dollar will go toward winning this once-in-a-generation battle to save our Second Amendment freedom. AND EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR YOU GIVE TODAY COUNTS!

Your contributions to NRA-ILA support our fight on your behalf in the halls of Congress and across the country. Your contributions are the lifeblood of our legislative and legal initiatives, research, educational pieces, press activities, and all of our pro-gun advertising and grassroots activism.

There is no other way to put it: Our strength comes from you. Our ability to win comes from you. That’s why I’m asking you to help save our Second Amendment by making NRA-ILA stronger than ever before.


Thank you for everything you do to support NRA-ILA and defend freedom.

Please help as soon as you can.
Sincerely,
Chris

  1. Make no mistake. As domestic partnership led to Gay Marriage, what seems like reasonable restrictions on gun ownership will end up with outright ban, criminalization of ownership and confiscation.

    I have no need for an assault weapon, nor a clip that holds more than 9 bullets. I shot more game with a single shot 12 guage than everyone I ever hunted with that had doubles, pump or autos. That is not the point.

    Incrementalism has been the single most effective tactic of the left and street community organizers who would be kings. It is all in or all out. Think not, you lose, for better or worse, and in this case as in most, the government is not your friend.

    1. There is some wishful thinking that federal or state gun control laws will not be enforced by local police.

      My feeling is that if a national ban on guns passes Congress, it will be too late.

      Local law enforcement will refuse to assist ? Remember how the Feds bypassed them during alcohol prohibition and the Civil Rights era.

      Active duty troops will refuse to act against civilians? See the Bonus Army, the civil rights era, and various anti drug support roles today.

      Governors will use the National Guard against Feds? See federalization of the NG during the civil rights era.

    3. It is not going to pass Congress, not a ban.

      Not even fooling around the edges either, I suspect, not right now.

    4. State gun laws out this way would empower the citizens to keep their guns. It depends on the state.

  2. Were these workers armed? Did governmenet help them?

    Thirty hostages were feared dead after Algerian troops stormed a desert gas field seized by a jihadist group in a disastrous end to the worst international hostage crisis of recent years.

    Reuters news agency quoted an Algerian security source as saying that the 30 victims included eight Algerians, two Britons, two Japanese and one French national, and that the nationality of the remaining 17 hostages killed in the battle had not been confirmed. Earlier in the day, the militants claimed 34 western hostages had lost their lives in the Algerian rescue attempt. Eleven jihadists were also reported to be killed.

    One British contractor died in the initial jihadist attack on the In Amenas gas field on Wednesday morning, but prime minister David Cameron warned that the country "should be prepared for further bad news in this very dangerous, fluid situation". The Foreign Office called it "an appalling tragedy".

    Algeria’s state news agency APS saidthe military operation to free hostages had ended, quoting an unnamed official source who gave no further details.

      I used to belong. Quit because I thought the leadership was nutz in some of the things they were pushing for.

      However, the point Deuce made above is true. With the libs, it's the incrementalism that does you in. Give an inch and they will want a foot, the slippery slope begins.

      The NRA is uncompromising.

      However, I probably still won't re-up.

  5. Nothing hypocritical about Barky.

    He is 'for the kids'.

    Unless you are a kid that survives an abortion, of course.

    Then, it's the 'comfort room' for you.

  6. SAN ANTONIO | Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:31pm EST

    (Reuters) - Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a message for New York gun owners: Come to Texas, and bring your guns with you.

    "Texas is better than New York, and New York just gave us another excuse to say that," Abbott, a Republican, said on Thursday, after ads extolling Texas appeared on several media websites.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed sweeping gun-control legislation earlier this week expanding the state's ban on assault weapons and putting limits on ammunition capacity in the wake of last month's school shootings in Connecticut.

    Abbott, a possible candidate for governor of Texas in next year's election, used campaign money to buy ads on websites of news organizations in New York City and Albany.

    One ad says in classic Western script: "WANTED: Law abiding New York gun owners seeking lower taxes and greater opportunities."

    Clicking on the ad leads to a Facebook page touting the virtues of Texas, including the fact that the state has no income tax so "you'll be able to keep more of what you earn and use that extra money to buy more ammo."

    Abbott told Reuters the ads are a "way to tweak our liberal friends up in the Northeast."

    "It is tongue in cheek, but there is a deeper message here," he said. "Texas really does stand as the last bastion of ultimate freedom in this country. Over the last decade, more than 4 million people moved to this state, and one reason is freedom and one reason is economic opportunity."

    Abbott has said he will file a federal lawsuit to throw out any nationwide gun restrictions implemented by Congress.

    A Cuomo spokesman did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.

  7. Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice have asked a federal court to indefinitely delay a lawsuit brought by watchdog group Judicial Watch. The lawsuit seeks the enforcement of open records requests relating to Operation Fast and Furious, as required by law.

    Judicial Watch had filed, on June 22, 2012, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking all documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious and “specifically [a]ll records subject to the claim of executive privilege invoked by President Barack Obama on or about June 20, 2012.”

    The administration has refused to comply with Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, and in mid-September the group filed a lawsuit challenging Holder’s denial. That lawsuit remains ongoing but within the past week President Barack Obama’s administration filed what’s called a “motion to stay” the suit. Such a motion is something that if granted would delay the lawsuit indefinitely.

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said that Holder’s and Obama’s desire to continually hide these Fast and Furious documents is “ironic” now that they’re so gung-ho on gun control. “It is beyond ironic that the Obama administration has initiated an anti-gun violence push as it seeking to keep secret key documents about its very own Fast and Furious gun walking scandal,” Fitton said in a statement. “Getting beyond the Obama administration’s smokescreen, this lawsuit is about a very simple principle: the public’s right to know the full truth about an egregious political scandal that led to the death of at least one American and countless others in Mexico. The American people are sick and tired of the Obama administration trying to rewrite FOIA law to protect this president and his appointees. Americans want answers about Fast and Furious killings and lies.”

  8. The NRA has been more successful in dealing with the govt/reality because they recognize and accept incrementalism as the way it is, and what must be dealt with and how.

    How is to never give an inch that you don't have to.
    The GOP give inches, yards, and miles.

    Part of this difference is simply smarter strategy by the NRA.
    The more difficult thing to measure as far as the GOP goes is this:

    The NRA folk actually BELIEVE and live by the values they espouse and defend.

    The Beltway Elite in the GOP, not so much.
    Hollywood culture affects everyone who lives there to some degree.
    DC does too, IN SPADES.

  13. Senator Rand Paul had some strong words regarding Obama's imperious nature. Whether hyperbole or truth, it's disturbing. If hyperbole, it reflects poorly on the traditional and expected temperate nature of the Senate. If truth, it confirms what we have suspected. Either way, it's bad.

  14. Now is not the time for drive-by gun grabs but with Democrat Governors like Cuomo and others trying to outdo themselves, the left is hot for action. Obama, with his recent very public commitments in Newtown has ratcheted up the pressure to do something about the bogeyman assault weapons.

    The House and Senate would to do well to let this issue cool down before taking ANY action.
