Political Elite with Concealed Carry Permits a Symptom of “Only Ones’ NOT Support for Gun Rights

Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- Word of gun owners’ victory at the Iowa Straw Poll is spreading.

Even one of America’s premier political news sites, Politico.com, has picked up the story about how National Association for Gun Rights members just like you toppled Tim Pawlenty’s Presidential campaign.

The article even noted my subsequent call for NAGR members to lobby Governor Rick Perry to return the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Candidate Survey.

However, Politco.com writer Maggie Haberman missed the mark when she noted that Perry has a concealed carry permit by assuming he must be pro-gun because he has a concealed weapon permit.

Senator Barbara Boxer
Senator Barbara Boxer (left),  seen here vilifying semi-automatic rifles with Dianne Feinstein, has a permit to carry.

The Washington, D.C. elites just don’t get it. They think that simply having a concealed weapon permit automatically makes any politician pro-gun.

Do you think California Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer is pro-gun? No, I don’t think so, either.

But Barbara Boxer used her influence to secure an elusive concealed carry permit from California.

I can almost hear her trying to deceive gun owners… “Trust me, I have a permit.”

Or how about New York Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer?

Schumer himself is reported to possess a New York concealed handgun permit, and both U.S. Senators regularly employed armed guards for their personal protection.

Just because a politician recognizes that being armed makes THEM safer, doesn’t mean they support YOUR right to keep and bear arms. They think they’re different than you and me, that because of their title they’re entitled to MORE rights than we are.

The Second Amendment is about much more than just carrying concealed… or hunting… or sport shooting.

Your right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.

Chuck Schumer
Chuck Schumer, one of the most anti-gun Senators in Washington D.C., obtained a permit to carry for self-defense.

That’s why the National Association for Gun Rights sends Presidential Candidate Surveys to politicians like Tim Pawlenty and Governor Rick Perry.

Gun owners MUST know where they stand on important issues like banning magazine or bans on certain types of semi-automatic rifles, or opposing the United Nations’ Small Arms Treaty gun-grab.

Please call Rick Perry’s campaign RIGHT NOW at (858) 483-4300 and demand that he return the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Candidate Survey.

I hope you’ll also take a moment and re-read my article about how AmmoLand readers like you toppled Tim Pawlenty’s Presidential aspirations.

Please, don’t forget to call Governor Perry at (858) 483-4300 and demand that he return the National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Candidate Survey.

For liberty,

Treena I sincerely hope you do realize that the original malitia sometimes called minutemen were ordinary citizens. The Second Amendment was written to protect the citizens from a tyrannical government. Yes British rule of the Colonies was tyrannical. Many of us Law Abiding cidizens do practice at the range often up to three times a week when time allows. Sandy Hook was a False Flag later confirmed by the government to be a training drill. The government is constantly going after both The Constitution and Bill of Rights in order to remove any opposition to the Government. Look at what… Read more »


Wow the left is truely evil. We now need our guns to protect us from false flags. I still say cut the head off the snake. Get rid of CNN

Treena needs a lesson in proper english. She’s misread the 2A.


Gee Treena I really did try and read your entire dissertation but my began to glaze over by the second paragraph. Unfortunately I have a very low threshold for blatantly ignorant people. What is a blatantly ignorant person you ask? Ignorant is when someone has no exposure to the facts and therefor makes their decisions based on ill concieved ideas. Blatantly ignorant is when someone has access to the truth and ignores it in favor of promoting their liberal agenda. You my dear fall into the category of blatantly Ignorant just as your dear Leader Barack Insane Obama and his… Read more »

Treena – nice of you to remind me that ONE, people like you are not worth dying for while in uniform; Two, you cannot grasp the vision of the Founders to make sure that we can resist oppression from our own government should it arise – and it can happen here, we're not exempt from history – but I bet you don't know your history either,. from the poor logic you present, so Three, you reaffirm my belief that not all the brood mares and breeding cows are safely herded on the government farm – just how in the hell… Read more »


Treena dont let all those big ole mean gun guys get you down.

You just keep spitting out all your stupid bullshit so everyone will be able to see just how stupid you libs are on the issue.

Then you should study some good ole American history and see just what the second amendment was put there for in the first place.

Then you might come back here and thank some of these people that are helping to keep this great nation together.


My, my, my! Treena, bless your heart! First of all 911 has it purpose. Correct me fellow posters if I am incorrect, but I read that in Aura Colorado theater shooting, 911 was call from patrons not only in the line of fire, but from adjoining theaters. 911 was also called from the school in recent shooting. How did that work out? When the shooting starts it is too late for 911. Now, Ms. Treena on another point in your writing, you ask us to fight for something important, one thing you mentioned was abortion. Do you have any clue… Read more »

Treena, I live in the Country, calling 911 may take 30 min to 1 hour to respond so what do I do? Having no guns leaves the door open for a Unjust Government to come in, having Guns 2nd Amen. gives pause,and we would not have a Country if the non law adiding citizen did not have guns because the Founders were not with King George and would have been shot if caught, think about that when you disarm any Citizen Law Abiding or not. I depend on my friends next door 20 acres away for assistance for 4 leg… Read more »
