    2A - Good News, the NRA is wrong/no one coming for your Guns (News Editor)

    Real Title: No one is coming to take your guns
    February 16, 2013
    By Sam Pollak
    The Daily Star

    Sam Pollak is the editor of The Daily Star. He can be reached at spollak@thedailystar.com or at (607) 432-1000, ext. 208. His columns can be found at Sam Pollak » The Daily Star, Oneonta, NY - otsego county news, delaware county news, oneonta news, oneonta sports.

    My Comments: Read his drivel and if you are bored today, drop him a polite note or leave him a polite voicmail. He's not just talking to NRA Members, he is talking to all of you 'ignorant' Lawful Gun Owners.........He is sending out a pointed message of hate of the NRA, you (regardles of your NRA membership status), as well as calling on his friends to go out and do one-on-one propaganda to educate 'Igornant' Lawful Gun Owners who have been duped by the Evil NRA. He even fully insults his two friends (who he supposedly 'converted') in the article. There will be no middle ground with the Progressive Left Anti-Gun crowd this time around.

    Some stuff from the article.......

    As for those who almost seem to be rooting for a shoot-’em-up national insurrection and have been buying into NRA propaganda all these years, I’m really sorry to break the sad news that your guns are safe from confiscation. That must be a terrible blow to everyone who has been fearfully dipping into the egg-and-milk money to purchase expensive weaponry and buy more than enough bullets to conquer North Korea.

    The NRA used to be a much more mainstream organization, concentrating on gun-safety classes, police training, hunting and self-defense activities. While it’s still doing all those things, it has morphed into an uncompromising opponent of any and all government efforts to reduce gun violence and has received millions of dollars from major gun manufacturers.

    In return, the NRA has led the “they’re coming for our guns” paranoia that started hitting its stride when Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992.

    ......A few weeks ago, I had lunch with a couple of very conservative friends (yes, I have some conservative friends).......

    ......Those are two very nice guys, smart guys for whom I have an enormous amount of respect. But I had to tell them the bad news.

    No matter how slippery the imaginary slope, the “jack-booted government thugs” radical NRA President Wayne LaPierre referred to in a 1995 fundraising letter won’t be showing up at their houses.

    Was this polite enough?

    You, sir, are either an idiot or do not keep up with current events (or possibly both). I bet your conservative "friends" feel the same way about you that you feel about them.

    Gasmitty ,

    I agree with your facts and sentiment.. I hate some of the sources you cite... There are far more "reasonable" citations of gun confiscation, you can even use the MSM to refute the points made by the pundits for the antis...

    Don't, please, put yourself, or the rest of us, in league with the likes of Alex Jones... The only reason "There's a war on for your mind" is that Alex has lost his, and is hoping for a suitable replacement.

    Discourse in this thread has been civil. Use FAR RIGHT rebuttals against FAR LEFT diatribes. Each makes a much sense as the other.

    He is correct that the NRA used to be much more mainstream. That's what happens when you maintain your principles and progressives continue to push society hard to the left.

    "No one is coming for your guns."

    Really? Tell that to the people that live in states being told they have x days to get it out of the state or turn it in to law enforcement or they will be considered a criminal. That sounds like coming for their guns to me.

    Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.

    No worries, I know all about Jones and his "illustrious" reputation. I was pressed for time and found the references I sought conveniently on Jones' site - I should have added a disclaimer. No way I'm going to use Alex Jones to support our fight.

    Why is it that when people don't have an answer to a question or a problem, they just make one up to suit them. Only time will tell what the government will try to do. Don't expect them to tell you.
