BELLEVUE, WA – -( President Obama was absolutely correct when he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that “there will be resistance” to his extremist proposal to ban the most commonly-owned and popular rifles in America, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“We will be on the front lines of that resistance,” vowed CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb.

The president gave an exclusive interview to “Meet the Press” during which he said that he will put his “full weight” behind the gun ban effort, and that he would like to accomplish this ban during the first year of his second term, meaning sometime in 2013. Mr. Obama also said he will “call all the stakeholders together.”

“We’re still waiting for his telephone call,” Gottlieb said. “He has insisted that he will talk to anybody. If the discussion is all about penalizing honest gun owners, banning guns and eroding the Second Amendment, it’s going to be an awfully short conversation.”

Fears of a looming gun ban have caused sales of modern sporting rifles and standard capacity magazines to skyrocket.

“The guns that President Obama and Capitol Hill gun grabbers don’t want the people to have,” Gottlieb observed, “are the ones people are buying by the bushel. Criminals won’t turn them in, so why should law-abiding gun owners be expected to do that?

“Mr. Obama admitted that he has historically supported banning semi-autos and magazines,” he noted. “His philosophy is to focus on an object when we should focus on perpetrators and the horrible pattern of violence that has resulted from the creation of so-called ‘gun-free’ zones. Gun-free zones and gun bans only disarm victims and create risk-free conditions for criminals and crazies.

“You cannot have an honest discussion about violence without addressing conditions that make it easy for criminals,” Gottlieb concluded. “You can’t keep people truly safe by giving them the illusion of safety. You do not stop criminals by penalizing law-abiding citizens and demonizing their firearms.”


With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at or by email to

    1. The purpose of the Second Amendment is to arm people in order to prevent future tyranny. They need the tools to do this.

      The term “Well Regulated” in the Second Amendment meant “Well Manned and Equipped ” in 1791 as was determined in the 1939 United States v. Miller case after referencing the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. The concept of Government Regulation, as we understand it today, did not exist at the time.

      United States v. Miller also determined that the term “Arms” refers to “Ordinary Military Weapons” (not crew operated). American Citizens have the right to Keep and Bear, which means Own and Carry, any weapons that a soldier carries into battle. That includes past, present and future weapons. A Militia consisted of armed volunteers willing to fight with their personal arms and not under government control.

      To limit the Second Amendment to muskets would be the equivalent of limiting the First Amendment to writings in quill pens.

      Liberty is worth the risk of death!

    2. While the country burns they who cause it all will be jetting on to vacations and family outings.
      Well, we have the second amendment for a reason. Lets just see how this works out.

      Boots on and kicking.

    3. The time rapidly approaches now. Obama has thrown down the gauntlet. The issue will be decided by the gun. The order to stand to will come soon. America will need all her sons and daughters. Molon Labe.

    4. There are an estimated 100 million gun owners in America. If 3% of us stand up to be counted, thats 30 million. think about that. Thats why O-Bozo and Frankenstein want to disarm us. They are scared shitless that when it hits the fan, they will become an endangered minority.

    5. By the way.I am a 35er!

    6. 3%er!

    7. 3% of 100 million is three million not 30 million.

    8. three mill is still a good number

    9. If people think the Civil War almost ended our states, they ain’t seen nothing if yet. No, I don’t think gun owners will give up any of their guns. Hey, everyone had their homes broken into and all our guns are gone. There are many more places to hide them than in plain sight in our homes.

      Unfortunately, my rowboat tipped over last year with my guns in it, right in the middle of a lake. I was lucky enough to be able to swim away, but the guns are on the bottom of the lake. Such a shame..

    11. Resistance ‘Mr’ prez?
      Still today your kool-aide sippin’ minions all insist you’ll ‘never come for our guns’. Really? The most anti-gun rights senator ever elected to the corrupt Illinois government? We know you’ve been busy with your Constitution shredding executive orders, which you promised you’ll ‘never use’. We know you’ve been busy with an illegal treaty with the UN (where EVERYBODY loves us)so THEY can come disarm us, with no worries about killing Americans.
      We know you’re busy with closed door meetings for a ‘reasonable gun control bill’ that we’ll have to pass before we can read it.

      WE know YOU have no idea what you’re up against.

      Hiding your guns does no good at all. Burying your guns does no good at all. Whats the point?
