Obama-Bloomberg Minions Renew National Effort to Take Away Your Guns

Obama-Bloomberg Minions Renew National Effort to Take Away Your Guns

No one hates guns more than California. 

They came close to banning most semi-autos and do register all guns.  They have moved to regulate ammunition.  They have just established a $24 million program to send SWAT teams to people’s homes to confiscate their guns.  They are using microstamping and pushing gun-insurance requirements as a mechanism for banning guns nationwide.

And yet, on Friday night, California’s hatred of freedom did nothing but turn 19 people — six dead and 13 wounded — into sitting ducks, as a deranged killer went on a rampage in a quiet college town. 

We, along with all Americans, pray that God will give comfort to those who mourn for the family members they lost over the weekend. 

But what can we learn from this latest horrific tragedy? 

First, gun control made people less safe. California, which has the strictest gun laws in the nation, has a gun-homicide rate that is 70 times higher than Utah’s — the state the Brady Campaign listed as having the least gun control in the nation.  So people are actually much safer in Utah, where guns are more easily available!

Second, the shooter (whose name we will not publicize) amply demonstrated one of his motives with his widely televised videotape and his 140-page manifesto:  he wanted to get his 15 weeks of fame on MSNBC and CNN, who immediately responded with the type of crazed coverage that can only encourage more copycat shootings. 

Third, we would note that this privileged kid had been prescribed drugs such as Risperidone — and we would be willing to bet that he was one of 1-in-5 boys (and 11% of all kids, 4-17) who, because of federal law, had been shuttled onto Ritalin or Adderall. All of this tends to reinforce the apparent link between certain prescription drugs and mass murder.

What are the practical ramifications? 

Well, it didn’t take any time at all for the Bloomberg vultures to descend upon the horrific tragedy to try to pick its bones for political gain. 

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Rep. Peter King (R-NY) have already called for stricter gun controls in the wake of the California shooting.  CNN did its part to push for gun control yesterday, with a headline blaring:  “Will California shooting revive gun debate?”

And on Monday, MSNBC’s Richard Lui asked Bloomberg minion Erika Soto Lamb:  “Does this help your cause?” and “Will this emotion translate” into a greater push for gun control?  Lamb’s reply:  “Absolutely.” 

What an unspeakably vile admission it is for gun control advocates to rejoice over the deaths of children because it “helps [their] cause.” 

But the problem is this:  There are at least 15 Democrats running for the Senate in pro-gun states on the lie that they care something about the Second Amendment.  Some are no-name challengers.  

But at least eleven are currently members of the Senate:  Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Kay Hagan (D-NC), John Walsh (D-MT), Mark Warner (D-VA), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Mark Udall (D-CO), Tom Udall (D-NM), Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Al Franken (D-MN). 

If they are allowed to go into the election without taking an actual position on gun control — one that makes a difference — and, if they are elected to the Senate, the Second Amendment will be in grave danger in 2015. 

For this reason, we are asking Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul to force a Senate vote on changing the Senate rules to prohibit any gun control.  Harry Reid has already blown up the Senate rules to pack the circuit courts with anti-gun judges. And, Reid has further threatened to weaken the filibuster rules — a parliamentary tool which gun rights supporters have used to protect the Second Amendment.

Gun owners must encourage the pro-gun leaders in the Senate to demonstrate that they care as much about the Second Amendment as Reid cares about destroying it. 

ACTION:  (1) Write your Senators.  Demand that they support Senate rules changes to prohibit any gun control from being adopted in the Senate. NOTE:  If you live in Texas or Kentucky, the Engage action site will invite you to send a different message to each of your two Senators. (2) If you live outside of Texas or Kentucky, then use the pre-written letter below to contact Senators Cruz and Paul.  (You can use the following contact information for Ted Cruz and Rand Paul).  Ask them to push a rules change to prohibit any gun control measure from passing in the Senate. 

GOA Slams Bloomberg and Justice Stevens for their Idiotic Ideas on the 2nd Amendment

GOA Slams Bloomberg and Justice Stevens for their Idiotic Ideas on the 2nd Amendment
While gun owners dramatically winning the culture war
“The founders did not establish a right to bear arms,” GOA’s Erich Pratt was quoted as saying to Newsmax.  “They assumed it already existed [and] said that it ‘shall not be infringed.’ [But] gun-control advocates frequently want to skip over those words.”

———————————————————————————————————————

Gun Owners of America joined a chorus of pro-gun organizations in slamming idiotic comments made recently by former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.

In a newly released book, Justice Stevens said the Second Amendment should be altered to say that people only have the right to bear arms “when serving in the militia.” 

GOA blasted the comments, adding that gun owners would welcome the opportunity to demolish Stevens’ arguments in the court of public opinion.  

“Bring on the debate,” said GOA Communications Director Erich Pratt in an interview with Newsmax over the weekend.  Gun control advocates are always “pushing for draconian gun restrictions” while hiding behind words like “gun safety.”

But to a gun banner, those words are code for, “We just want the military and the police to have guns,” Pratt said.  “So let’s get them out of the closet.”

Gun owners need not worry about Stevens’ idea gaining traction.  Even an anti-gun liberal, like Professor Alan Dershowitz, opposes Stevens’ proposal.

“You don’t amend the Magna Carta,” Dershowitz said. “You don’t amend the Bill of Rights. There are certain things that you just leave pristine.”

GOA agrees.  And increasingly, so do the American people.

Polls show more Americans opposing gun control

Remember all the phony polls which were used by Obama last year in order to push gun control? 

Remember the unrelenting unilateral media pressure to ban guns — pressure reflected in even the “conservative” media? 

Well, who’s laughing now? 

Tuesday, the liberal USA Today was forced to concede that even liberal pollsters have found a massive, cataclysmic shift by Americans in favor of the right to keep and bear arms. 

We bet that USA Today trolled all of the polls for some evidence that Americans embraced gun control to the same extent as their editorial board.  What they found was a liberal Pew poll — conducted immediately after last year’s Newtown vote in April — that found that Americans were statistically evenly divided between pro-gunners and anti-gunners.  Okay, it’s a liberal poll. 

But what was even more interesting is that, in 2000, the same poll, asking the same questions, had found Americans supporting gun control by a margin of 66% to 29% — a 37% gap in favor of gun control. 

And Pew is not alone. 

Later in 2013, Gallup found that 51% of all Americans do not support stricter gun control.  In 2000, that number was 38% — with 62% of Americans supposedly favoring more anti-gun laws. 

Of course, 2000 was the year when gun owners confounded the pollsters and elected George Bush as president, over the anti-gun Democratic candidate, Al Gore. 

Hence, you shouldn’t trust the polls.  But when liberal gun grabbers are forced to concede that the polls are against them, that tells you something really interesting. 

So, guess what, in this Easter week, we note that even Satan quotes scripture when he has no choice.

Bloomberg gets it really, really wrong

Speaking of the forces of darkness quoting Scripture, anti-gun former Mayor Michael Bloomberg chose this Easter week to try his hand at some biblical exposition.

But before we tell you about his whopper, Bloomberg made headlines on Wednesday after announcing his “threat” to spend $50 million to change people’s hearts and minds in favor of gun control.

Never mind the fact that Bloomberg has anything but the Midas touch when it comes to pushing gun control, as he’s lost almost every battle where he’s spent his millions.  

“I guess he’s free to do so; he’s got money to waste,” said GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt on MSNBC.  “But frankly, I think he’s going to find out why his side keeps losing.”

Indeed, Bloomberg lost in Nevada last year, where he tried to get a universal gun registry and universal background checks enacted.  

He lost in Colorado, where he tried to rescue two state senators from being recalled because of their gun control votes.  

And he lost in the U.S. Senate, where a concealed carry amendment actually garnered more Senate votes than did his proposal for expanding background checks on guns.

But it’s not just on guns where he gets it wrong.  Obviously proud of his efforts in pushing firearms restrictions, Bloomberg said this week that:

“If there is a God, when I get to heaven, I’m not stopping to be interviewed.  I’m heading right in.  I’ve earned my place in heaven.  It’s not even close.”

Wow, if he thinks he’s blessed because of his efforts to disarm the public, he should consider passages like I Samuel 13:16-22, where arms control was considered a curse; and Luke 22:36, where Jesus told His disciples to sell their cloaks and buy a sword (if they didn’t already have one).

And as for breezing right through the pearly gates, without an interview, and gaining entrance on the basis of his own very tainted efforts?  Does he really think that he can buy his way into heaven because of the millions he’s spent on “social issues”? 

Most people would find that disgusting.

Sadly, it appears that Bloomberg has no idea what this Easter weekend is all about.  And so on that note, we here at Gun Owners of America hope that you and your family will have a blessed holiday.
