The murder of 13 moviegoers last night in a Denver-area theater was horrific.
Colorado -–(Ammoland.com)- My prayers, and the prayers of our staff and members, go out to the families of the victims and those wounded in this attack.
Living in Colorado, this attack strikes close to home for me. I was sad this morning, but now I’m angry.
I’m angry that the theater bans law-abiding citizens from arming themselves for self-defense.
I’m angry that this deranged lunatic murdered men, women and children in a senseless act of violence.
And I’m outraged that already, not even twelve hours after the shooting, the gun control vultures are circling the victims.
This morning, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has taken to the airwaves to exploit the blood of innocents to advance his radical anti-gun agenda.
Never one to let a “crisis go to waste,” Bloomberg is demanding both President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney publicly come out in favor of expanding gun control. While Colorado and the nation remain in a state of shock and grief, the Bloomberg political machine is callously exploiting this tragedy to churn out their anti-gun lies and rhetoric.
Make no mistake — this is a dangerous time right now for our gun rights. President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are neck-and-neck in the Presidential race and they’re desperate.
With a sinking economy and lackluster campaigns, they’re BOTH looking for any advantage they can muster.
And that means OUR Constitutionally-protected gun rights are certain to be in their sights.
You and I both know what President Obama thinks of gun owners . . . he thinks we’re “bitter” hicks, who “cling to our guns.”
But Mitt Romney’s record is no better. As Governor of Massachusetts he permanently banned an entire class of firearms.
Tragedies like last night’s movie theater shooting are just the sort of thing that the gun-banners have been waiting to exploit.
They will use this tragedy – and others like it – to call for “action.” You and I both know their “call to action” means more gun control.
As gun owners and gun rights activists we MUST be vigilant in these times — not just in the defense of our loved ones, but in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.
With the UN “Small Arms Treaty” gun control meetings in New York City concluding exactly one week from today, it looks more likely than ever Barack Obama will attempt some sort of election-year gun grab.
In the name of public or international safety, and under pressure to conform to international “law,” that could mean a ban on inexpensive, imported ammunition . . .
- . . . or a ban on full-capacity magazines . . .
- . . . or an outright ban on civilian ownership of handguns . . .
- . . . or worse yet, they could attack our very right to own firearms at all!
To make matters worse, Republican nominee Mitt Romney might help him!
You and I both know that Barack Obama, Michael Bloomberg and left-wing international gun-grabbers will work every angle of this shooting as an excuse to restrict our rights.
Our right to defend ourselves and our families from violent thugs – and anti-gun politicians – hangs in the balance on a daily basis.
Here is what you can do to help:
- Please pray for the families of the victims and those injured by the horrific attack near Denver.
- Gun grabbers seize upon every outrage and crime, so we must always be prepared.
- Continue your engagement and activism as it could be the only thing that stands between our gun rights and the Obama-Bloomberg Machine’s gun control schemes.
