NRA President: Democrats Shocked By Second Amendment Support

David Keene, President of the National Rifle Association believes that Barack Obama and the Democrats have been shocked by the outpouring of support for the Second Amendment as they have launched the biggest gun control push in Washington and the states that we have seen. Americans are awake to the Obama administration's tactics and the push of the Socialists in Congress to attack the Second Amendment and they are in for a rude awakening should they seek to continue down this road.

In an interview at CPAC 2013, Mr. Keene said that he believed former President Bill Clinton was correct as he warned Obama late in 2012 to be careful as he considered expanding gun restrictions.

“[Gun control proposals were] one of the main reason for Republicans seizing the House in 1994. Americans care about the Second Amendment and the president is seeing that,” Keene said.

Keene had been to Albany, New York and seen the protests of more than 10,000 people in the rain to the unconstitutional and tyrannical push of New York's legislature and its governor.

“There are rallies like that all over the country. Members of Congress are receiving lots of letters. It’s clear the narrative that the president tried to construct was wrong. That’s the reason a lot of what [Obama] proposed is being slowed down,” Keene said.

He also spoke about the recent bill passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee which would enact universal background checks and would be a considerable overreach of the Federal government. His concern is that these would be largely ineffective apart from a national gun registry, which is also in Senator Dianne Feinstein's bill. This would be the first step towards gun confiscation.

Keene not only criticized Obama, but also Senator Feinstein and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. “The Justice Department under Obama issued a study that said a background check wouldn’t mean much unless it included a gun registry. Cuomo in New York and Sen. Dianne Feinstein have also said they both want to enact forced government buybacks,” Keene said. “That means if they know you own a gun, you’ll sell it to the government at a price we dictate. That’s confiscation.”

While Obama called on Congress to vote on passing new gun control legislation during his State of the Union speech, Keene said he wanted the same, but for a different reason.

“We want a vote as well because a lot of people who are hostile to the Second Amendment haven’t had to go through a vote,” the NRA president said. “A lot of politicians have been able to say ‘I’m with you,’ but these votes would put people in a position of supporting the Second Amendment, or not.”

He also argued that people like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others who think the public is on their side when it comes to expanding gun laws are in for a rude awakening.

“Michael Moore, Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg tried immediately following Newtown to pivot and hope that it would change the whole narrative and that people would give up Second Amendment rights,” Keene said. “They’ve been shocked that hasn’t happened. Mental-health care and lack of school security are the two main reasons these shootings happened.”

The NRA and other organizations, such as Gun Owners of America, have seen significant increases in membership following the re-election of Barack Obama. Clearly people don't want anymore gun legislation and would like to see that turned back.

“Support for the Second Amendment is not going to vanish. When this began, we had 4 million members. By the time we meet in Houston, I’m betting we’ll have 5 million,” he said.

I know I see the support all around, not only on this sight, but virtually anyone I hear from across the country. People understand that Barack Obama has aspirations and they are not in the best interest of America or the American people. Whenever he and his partners in crime say they are not out after your guns, that is exactly what they are out for and we know it.

    Of course they're shocked. They're all AINO's....Americans in Name Only.

  • Dale Netherton

    After taking an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution ( i.e. the law of the land ) These politicians ignore their oath by attacking the second amendment. These are dishonest crooks that should be thrown out of office as they do not understand what American law is.

    The NRA is not entirely the gun owners' friend.
    NRA should, with your dues, be challenging every gun law and seeing to it that they are repealed, as each and every gun law on the books since day one, is illegal. NRA should be seeing to it that those gun proposals should never become LAW.
    As it is now, the NRA "negotiates" with the lawmakers and meets them half-way about gun laws, sort of like a plea bargain. The government says "we'll give you what you want if you help us with this gun law." The NRA also helps the government to write these gun laws.
    Think about it; What good is an organization who collaborates with the enemy against the Second Amendment which clearly states "shall not be infringed". NRA is "infringing by negotiation".
    I'm not saying that you shouldn't join NRA. I'm saying maybe you should ask them what you're getting for your money.
    NRA should be defending your " non-infrigeable right" not helping the enemy write up the infringing laws after they've scratched each other's backs.
    Demand that the NRA work to strike down unconstitutional gun laws, not prostitute themselves out to the enemy.

    Since the only thing politicians understand is money, every gun owner in the US should refuse to buy a hunting license, or spend any money on any hunting-related item until this insanity of gun control is stopped. Think of the billions of dollars these professional liars collect and waste through taxes and fees from gun owners.

    The Kenyan has no latitude on this one. His NWO owner-handlers have ORDERED him to put on a full-court press to implement the Great American Gun Grab in concert with their UN small Arms treaty.

    RISE UP PATRIOTS, RISE UP and FIGHT BACK the socialistic/communistic/islamic thugs like obama and his ilk are trying to force upon us. TAKE BACK Our Country and throw these people out and into prison where they belong. What happened to our Greatest Generation from WWII??? We need them back but we need to take up the banner now for us and for our children. Never give up, never give up your guns, never register your firearms, never ever give in to this Corrupt Government. God is telling us something and I'm hoping more people are picking up on it. The comparison of obama and satan in the show The Bible is one way and the flies that kept bothering obama before leading people to say he is the Lord of the Flies(beelzebub).

    What may be one of the biggest differences between American leaders of long ago, and American leaders of present day? The political leaders of 200 yrs ago, saw themselves as regular citizens who were privileged to serve the people. Political leaders of today see themselves as being more than that. They're the elite, the ruling class over all of us commoners.

    The government is going to screw the pooch one time to many and the pooches bite is going to be worse than the bark

    You can bet EVERY MOVE, PHONECALL, EMAIL, TWEET, and twit of Info is going into this dictator's massive computer complex with a list of "his enemies" which include ANYONE who dares oppose him...who has their eyes opened...and loves freedom. May our many vets, military heroes, and brothers & sisters bearing arms for us abroad know that when they return we DO INDEED need them here! Why else would Obsama turn on his own military as well?

    Does he look like "the devil" on the BIble series...YES! But more importantly: Does he ACT like the devil?? Resoundedly so! The son of the "father of lies" ; the "deceiver"; the "destroyer"; the "Thief" and "evil one." I have never supported him being the AntiChrist, and I believe there have been MANY in history since those words were prophesied (as the "spirit of Anti-Christ" was in the world Jesus said, before Jesus' death!; and those whose names add up to 666 are also candidates!) But Obsama is certainly forging a path for America that very much fulfills John 10:10, where Jesus calls Satan "the thief":

    "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." (John 10:10-11)

    In EXposing "the thief" and his minions,however, do NOT forget there is an opposite force - a Good Shepherd who seeks to know us, save us, and love us! Do NOT lose heart -friends and Patriots! Seek the truth, to know it and do it, and fight to expose the evil! "If God is for us, who can be against US?"

    I could care less about the 2nd Amendment. By what authority did men arm themselves prior to 1791? Anyone who bases his argument for gun ownership on the 2nd Amendment is proverbially building a house on sand, instead of on the rock of Scripture. If one is not a Christian, the point is moot. But if one is a Christian, the hope for protection of gun ownership lies with God's word. The 2nd Amendment is not the strongest protector of gun ownership. Rights "guaranteed" by the 2nd Amendment are only as good as the amendment itself. The same government that gave you the 2nd Amendment could eventually take it away by the repeal process or by Supreme Court judicial decree. Then what? We need to stop looking to a government document to protect our “rights”, when that government could, and HAS, usurped those “rights” continually. This is where the debate over "rights" vs. responsibilities comes into play. Rights ALWAYS contain the option NOT to exercise said rights. We need to
    understand that Biblical RESPONSIBILITIES give us NO opportunity to “opt out”. It is the responsibility of EVERY Christian MAN to be armed, and sufficiently trained, in order to always be at the ready, in defense of self, family, community, and nation. Regardless the outcome of the push for evermore draconian gun laws, up to and including the possible banning of ALL privately held firearms, it is still the DUTY of Christians to maintain arms. Most of today's weak-kneed lily-livered, effeminate, so-called Christian males would agree with the popular phrase WWJD ( What Would Jesus Do). But they usually don't know the answer:

    Luke 22:36 --"And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword (or 1911 .45, or Glock 23, or Benelli 12 Gauge, or M4 Carbine, or Savage .338 Lapua) is to sell his coat and buy one."

    1 Timothy 5:8--"But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

    How can one provide for his own household, if he can't protect them?
