This is from the NRA statement in regards to their “discussion” with the Biden Commission;
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.
This is my shocked face.
It’s not Biden’s intention to do something as much as it is to appear to be doing something. Of course, the Federal Government can’t do anything constructive about school shootings, but the one thing they can do is make more useless laws against those who would abide by the law.
We’ve seen the hand-wringing crowd troll through this blog over the last few weeks and they’re so intellectually vacant that the only thing they can do is parrot the call for banning scary-looking weapons. Even Gabby Giffords, whom I used to respect has taken up the gun control mantle by prostituting herself and blaming the NRA for making gun control a “third rail” issue.
The thing that the Democrats forget is that the NRA represents over 4 million voters. It’s not a lobby for the gun companies, it’s a lobby for gun-owning American voters. Do the Democrats remember what happened to them in the 90s when they made guns an issue? Giffords says that she wants to match the money that the NRA pours into campaigns, but money doesn’t always equal votes.
