NRA Walks Out On Obama Administration's Attack On Second Amendment


This week the National Rifle Association went to the White House to talk about their plan for school safety following NRA vice president Wayne LaPierre's plan to put a police officer at every school. They walked out of the meeting when they realized that it was nothing more than an attack on the Second Amendment.

After attending the summit with Vice President Joe Biden to talk about measures that could be implemented to reduce future incidences of gun violence in public schools, the NRA said that none of their proposals were even on the table at the meeting.

In a statement issued the the Legal wing of the NRA, they wrote:

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.

There certainly should be no reason to be "disappointed" at how the Obama task force responded. In fact, I could have saved the NRA the trip to Washington to inform them that the Obama administration is targeting the Second Amendment. I could have also saved them their breath and money in their promotion of their Shield program. Frankly, the first thing out of the NRA's mouth following the Newtown, Connecticut shooting should have been to demand that school officials and teachers be allowed to exercise their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, but they didn't do that. They offered a big government solution. This is unfortunate considering they are the nation's biggest gun lobby organization.

    CNN and the rest of the media truth twisters use words like "assault weapon" to create a bias in the public's mind. My fists are "assault weapons." My knife is, my bat, my truck... and you know, they are ALL "semi-automatic." Imagine that... it takes thought and action to make them work. Let's ban anything that can potentially take a life... doctors, medications, cars, planes, water... yep, that's the answer.

    There may be only 4 million menbers of the NRA but you can bet there are more than 4 million people who own guns and will not give them up and are not members of the NRA.I'm not a member,nor will I be, but I do stand with them, because it is the rights gave to any American to protect his home aganist whatever.The mass killing in our country I believe was caused by TV, but I wonder what kind of back ground these young people had..I was raised hunting,I bet these kids neve has been hunting or has did anything except play games or watch TV..Parents don't take time with their kids like parents use to.But thur out history there has always been killings and there will always be. Nothing can stop a person who wants to do harm to others.Taking guns is not the answer,and to be honest there is no real solution,Countries that has a gun ban the idots use bombs, or knives.....or some other means, you can't take stupid out of stupid..just look at our politicans...........

  • DAVID PEACOCK

    THE NRA WAS STUPID ENOUGH TO THINK THEY COULD TALK TO THIS POS!!!

  • james Bown

    Leave my money and my guns alone.....They want the people to come out in droves. They best leave well enough alone...He is a closet Muslim and anti-American.....Biden is a serious clown, Obma is the Clown Master...He thinks he can just sign a law and thats the why it is ! Being the HNIG, we will see. Sceond Amendment been here a lot longer then he'll be around... They've try before, this is not about hunting or target shooting this is about the the right to protecting oneself from just the kind of people Obama is, his Dictatorship over the American People is just about to come to an END...We still have impreachment laws, this time it won't be like it was with Bill Clinton......

  • Blaine

    This might be a good time to stop talking and join the NRA to show support and strength. Instead of being 4 million strong lets make it 100 million strong!!!!!!!!!!

  • willhe

    What is the NRA meeting with the anti-christian musilim administration in the first place. They need to be organizing troops USA wide for forcing these punks hand and deporting them.

    Well just what did you expect from The king of liberals?

    Bill Ayers, Barry Soetoro's aka Barack Obama's aka Harrison Bounel's (or Whatever his Real Name is) good friend and mentor said, when questioned, once, that IF they (the Socialists) were to actually Win their war on the US, that he thought that it was likely that they would have to Kill around 25 MILLION Citizens, who either refused to participate in their 'Re-education' programs or who flunked out of said brainwashing... That 25,000,000 US Citizens Folks !!!
    What Gives Them the RIGHT ?????

  • jsmithcsa

    Biden is a clown, and has no business participating in any serious policy discussiobns,

  • mudguy1

    If guns were outlawed why would there be any need for armed Marshals at all

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Burton-Trattner/1605691503 Burton Trattner

    Either they are blind or stupid. How come the Left is comfortable with an armed Marshall on airlines and appreciate his/her presence? But they don't think it would be safe in a school?
    This entire issue was brought into the forefront to further distant Benghazi.

    Time for the NRA to turn up the heat!

  • The Shadow

    When our "public servants" in Washginton lose their will to serve honorably; then it's time to remove them from office. They no longer have our best interests at heart and have dishonored their oath to serve the people under the laws of the Constitution. They have become a shamful disgrace as a representative of the people.
    The NRA was right to walk out. Why waste time trying to convince an immovable object of arrogance. Arm yourselves fellow citizens while you can still buy amo and guns. It's going to get nasty and we must defend ourselves from a government that has put on the face of tyranny as we live and breath. Their intrusion into every aspect of the American way of life has become too obvious and many still sleep in deception. Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. Don't get caught asking what happened!

    • southerner15

      You are right on buying ammo. I have been to two different places and neither one of them had 45's. Have one rifle and pistol to hold them off as long as I can. At least I will go down for what I believe in.

    • Flamingogal

      Get the bow and arrow out. The new ones are as deadly as guns.

  • Greg137

    Speaker Boehner could learn a valuable lesson from the NRA... IF you don't like a Deal leave... Don't compromise on where you stand! Knowig when to walk out on a negotiation is vital...

  • H.M.Stumpf

    Listen, most of us don't just dislike or don't trust Obama we HATE him. He is a closet Muslim and anti-American. How did this happen to my God loving Country ???

    • Bull57

      1st president in my 55 years that I truly hate. Hate his voice, hate the sight of him!

    • Seymour Kleerly

      Your feelings are completely controlled by Talk Radio, Fox News and sites such as this one. There will be high school course dissecting this very dangerous and sad phenomenon.

    • Tmac4799

      Seymour Kleerly = Blind Sheep

    • SeymourKleerly

      Let's see here. Righties hated Bill Clinton (60% approval). Righties loved G.W.Bush (30% approval). Hate Obama 53% and just reelected, Love the GOP. Congress. (9%). You guys are just brilliant.

    • southerner15

      All that percentage proves is that there are likely more Democrats than Republicans. True, there will be a high school course dissecting everything negatively said about Obama, but that will be from a bunch of liberal educators. You must not be working to be one of those complaining blind sheep who are shocked to have been screwed by your good buddy on taxes. Hate to say it, but this is the only president who has put fear in me--even Clinton wasn't that bad--just couldn't keep his pants zipped.

    • Dean

      If you think there is an iota of difference between the so-called two political parties, you are deluded! Left and Right arms of one huge farce!

    • Hell_o_USA

      You low lifes who want everything for FREE - on my back - don't know the meaning of an UNITED COUNTRY..... You are all about give ME, give ME. Never willing to give back. Go F--- off.

    • Dean

      Maybe you should take that course! As for me, I sent my children to private school!

    • defender3

      No sir you are absolutely wrong! I wont use the word hate, but I will assure you that the contempt that is demostrated by these words about Obama are from people who are well versed in the principles that this country was founded upon, and therefore we feel threatened, and rightly so by this aspiring dictator who was fraudently elected to hold the highest office of this once great and free country.

    • Native

      How did this happen? We gave blacks the right to vote!!!!!!!

    • Flamingogal

      In a way I agree with you. As long as African/Americans call themselves African/Americans they are not 100% American. As a woman I wish women had not gotten the vote. They vote with their emotions, not their minds. Women vote for men they want for husbands, lovers or even Father figures. Maybe a few with IQs higher than 100 would vote for a conservative. The rest get all giddy and silly about men like Obama and Kennedy.Good women teach your daughters politics and the right way (not the left way, to vote).

  • DCW16

    A city in Canada . . . Winnipeg . . . has had police officers in troubled schools for years. Not only do they keep the kids safe, they interact with the kids daily. No telling how many of these kids have been saved from gangs and drugs by these officers. Its been very positive.
    Of course in the Bamsters kids school there are a DOZEN ARMED GUARDS . . . that's OK for him . . . ditto I am sure for the leftist Short-assed Mayor in NY . . .
    The left always knows "What's good for YOU" . . . that is why all the Tyrants of History have been leftist loons ! ! !

  • retiredmillwright

    Socialists are not reasonable people, they are our way or the highway kind of tyrants They will lie as to what their motives are and brush the real answers off like a stray ant crawling on their leg.. The socialists are all about control of the American people and to make them self's our masters they want our guns and the constitution gone. When you try to deal with these kind of people, you are dealing with the devil and we grow closer to a civil war every day. There were many people in past history that believed gun grabbing tyrants and allowed them self's to be disarmed. Tens of millions of these disarmed people lie in mass graves all over the world where they were murdered by their own governments. Look at some of the films that the Germans took of their final solution for their disarmed people. On their faces you can see the look of being utterly betrayed, shocked and horrified as they were herded to the killing fields. Lets keep our guns and constitution and stand against the tyrants who would make themselves our masters if we let them.
