An inside look at the Anti-Gun, Anti-Freedom, movement. The article is long. I didn't need to read the entire thing to see how these anti-gun nuts fail to understand gun control makes citizens less safe; not more safe. This is ignorance squared and while I find ignorance on a local level impossible to fight; this is on a national level. They found their money man in nanny Bloomberg. A rich but quite insane person to be sure but that just makes him more dangerous.

This Is How the NRA Ends A bigger, richer, meaner gun-control movement has arrived


Your thoughts? Can we beat back this onslaught from the deranged anti-gunners?

I am not convinced that the facts support the article. "Gun ownership is declining" is a good case in point. I really don't see gun ownership declining in the US. Maybe I am missing it, but that article seemed more like a puff piece by one of Bloomingturd's minions than a fact filled expose.

Self-Reported Gun Ownership in U.S. Is Highest Since 1993

I have to agree with you on that. I think it is kind of ironic that the administration we have in office has voiced their wish for more gun control and it has caused the public to purchase firearms and ammo at what probably is a record rate. I believe the American citizens are much better armed than what they were a year ago.

Yep. I know it is anecdotal, but my 65 year old aunt just bought her first gun. She did not even consider owning one until last November.

The antis keep repeating the same lies. They have been found out. This type of article is a regurgitation of there agenda that the American people are not buying.

Edit to add: OP do not be surprised if this gets shut down or moved. I has nothing to do with self defense....

I only got through half of the article but what I read was bad.

On the one hand, it states that the NRA doesn't have any real power any more. On the other, it blames the NRA for its hold over politicians. Which is it?

I don't think the gun control movement is making any real headway in most of the country. What we had was a very emotional topic for a lot of people (much like 9/11) for a short period of time after Sandy Hook. It shocked a lot of people, but people have short memories and don't care about what doesn't personally affect them (in the long run). Those who were sitting the fence are still sitting the fence. Those who were anti or pro are more passionate about it. There are a lot of fence sitters that took a temporary position one way or the other. But, if gun control or 2A rights wasn't a major part of someones political ideology before Sandy Hook, it probably won't be that different in the next elections after the shock has been gone for a while.

The problem with liberalism is that it is emotion-driven. That leads to a lot of bad choices, but it is also harder to sustain, since you have to keep feeding those emotions in order to get the desired result. Those who didn't give two shakes about gun rights before Sandy Hook but became suddenly anti will be back on the fence until the next emotional agitation on the subject. The left will need to make sure those emotions are properly stoked come election time to get those people back into the ring.

What I think that articles like this really expose is the ignorance of what the NRA really is. There's a reason why it can do what it does: the 3 million+ members donate money to the cause. There are people who are supporting the NRA. They aren't some rogue organization that is acting apart from any sort of support or against the wishes of those who support it.

The NRA is bigger than it has ever been, gun sales have recently reached all-time highs, and Bloomberg just spent a chunk of change on lame ads which accomplished nothing. The article is a conglomeration of half-truth, outright fiction, magical thinking, confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance.

I would hazard the guess your post was moderated by a Mod. Better that your post get moderated or deleted by a Mod than receive an Infraction.
And that's all I got to say about that:blink:

This made me think of the parent that was at sandyhook the day of the shooting and hid in the meeting room.....i guess she wanted to save up her anger and rightous indignation for the media blitz after it was over.These people want to pass a law put it on file and stick their heads back up their.....in the sand ,return to condition white till the next atrocity.They have the audacity to pretend that gun owners are the ones that are carless about life.I wish i could be suprised.

^^My personal belief^^^^^^^^^^

is that this ignorant administration has so scared the people that voted him in an unbelievable second term, into believing that they really do want to take our guns, that they themselves are the ones flocking to the stores to buy a lot of the firearms being sold in the last 1.5 years.

But then something unexpected happened. Some of the senators who’d voted “no” faced furious voters back home. Even before Erica Lafferty, the daughter of murdered Sandy Hook Elementary principal Dawn Hochsprung..........
There was no need to read past that sentence, early in the article. It's already a very dishonest comment..... when it doesn't happen to mention that she was being paid by Bloomberg to go around to cause disturbances, use "get in your face" tactics at any Congressional Reps public appearance who were in what Bloomberg determined might be "vulnerable" and went on the attack of them. What BS... from the start, and total lack of honesty..... so no need to read any further to know where this was going..........

Lies, more lies, and more lies..... with no credibility at all.

I just read the article, and feel stupider for having done so. There's an obvious point they're missing: the leap from "this thing done with guns that was bad" to "we need to remove guns." Even background checks can't be rationalized with Sandy Hook, the shooter stole his weapons from a person who would have passed any reasonable check. Yet these folks believe that the emotional reaction is enough to overcome the obvious logical problems with their approach.

It isn't. That's why they're so excited about getting donations from 50,000 people, when the NRA has 4,000,000 paying members. The NRA is, simply, right, and the gun-control advocates wrong.

Interesting article.

I disagree with a number of its points, it's bases for justifications. In some cases, it's hard to separate the opinions of those being reported on from the reporter's opinions, opinion piece that it really is. That's a real weak spot.

Sadly, a a piece it seems clearly to be just another description of the gun control movement's movements. It's not pro-gun, even pro-liberty. It's pro-control.
