Washington, DC –-( For quite a long time now, the three or four anti-gun radicals that make up the Violence Policy Center haven’t had much to show the Joyce Foundation for the hundreds of thousands of dollars the leftwing foundation wastefully pumps into the anti-gun group each year.

As regular readers of AmmoLand well know, Second Amendment opponents’ defeats have outnumbered their temporary successes by a wide margin lately.

So, to earn their keep, this week the VPC – so small that it could hold its annual meeting in a closet – issued a predictable rant about NRA’s 2010 Annual Meeting in Charlotte, N.C., at which 70,000 of NRA’s four million members will assemble with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the ever-popular Chuck Norris, Tom Selleck, and Ted Nugent, and others to celebrate our successes and galvanize our efforts to advance Second Amendment rights in Congress, in state legislatures, in the courts, and in the voting booth.

The specifics of VPC’s rant are not worth mentioning. But we can’t resist noting that the anti-gunners brag that one of them once wrote a book that bad-mouthed the NRA. Doing so gives us the opportunity to note another book, Profiles in Courage, by NRA Life Member President John F. Kennedy. In it, JFK recalled that Missouri’s 19th century U.S. Sen. Thomas Hart Benton was once told by a detractor that he would one day write a book in which Benton would be featured prominently. Benton, JFK’s account recalls, replied that one day he too would write a book, but that his detractor would not be featured in it at all. As VPC’s desperate gripe about our Annual Meeting shows, at the current rate the anti-gun group is destined to have a similar fate.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and to advocate enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the military. Visit:
