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

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

National Association 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,
Dudley Brown

Oh, and Treena? By the way, the second amendment has nothing to do with the military dear. It means that in times of crisis the people become the militia, because they have THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!

Treena. Wow. Have you ever read the the constitution, or the amendments? Owning guns IS A RIGHT! Just like you have the right to freedom of speech, or the right to vote. Furthermore, the founding fathers said that the second amendment is THE most important one because it guards all the others. Once you take away the second, it'll just be more to come. Apparently you don't mind giving up your freedom of speech, or right to vote, or any of the others. By the way, do you know that 10% of all 911 calls go unanswered? It takes at… Read more »

Treena, thank you for revealing what a true buffoon you are. If I can ask you to read a court case: Warren vs District of Columbia, then maybe it will change your views. It will contain a lot of words, a lot of big words but I ask that you keep a dictionary and thesaurus next to you while you read.

Treena, you are left wing lunatic and a hypocrite. You support abortion, but that is just murdering babies a few years before those ones in Conn. You are the black hole of stupidity. You want same sex marriage, but call conservatives "teabaggers" which is a reference to a perverse homosexual practice. You disgust me.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.

There will be total gun control in the end. The second Amendment will be defined differently. There will be an assault weapons/HiCap magazine ban. There will be no grandfathering weapons in. There will be government buy backs, amnesty periods, etc etc but there will be NO exceptions. Last Friday America died. You will conform to the new order of obedience. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

@Treena…who are you to define my rights of self-defense? Why do you believe the government should do so as well? Do you not find it ironic that a majority of the politicians employ bodyguards or are allowed Secret Service protection yet they do not want us to have the ability to protect OUR families? I certainly do. Your pathetic sheeple bleating is yet another problem with the direction of this country. Pushing YOUR beliefs upon the rest of us without thinking about the consequences of your actions. Continue to do so and watch the government take each and every personal… Read more »

Treena, I have had the proper instruction since about the age of 4 and am quite skilled and proficient with any weapon of my choice be it a hand gun, long rifle, or compound bow. I can hit my target at distances that would make any sniper proud. I am also quite skilled with a knife as my husband and teenage boys will tell you after watching me properly instruct them in proper field dressing of wild game. It is your choice to not own a firearm, but it is my choice to protect me and my family and if… Read more »

@ Treena – Well, I'd agree with ONE thing. With your angrily emotional, ill-tempered, ill-worded, ill-thought out, uneducated, uninformed, blatantly erroneous, and patently false response, YOU (Treena) have no business with a gun, touching a gun, looking at a gun, or even discussing guns.

But, the response DID prove one thing: The clueless, far-left whack-jobs are EVERYWHERE, even on this webpage.

The reason guns are outlawed by politicians in Boston, Washington, New York is because their lives and frustrations in the society that they have built are so intense, their tempers are so strained, that they KNOW if they had a gun on them they would be murderers! It is like the person most suspicious of infidelity or of being stolen from is the person most likely to be cheating or stealing. The response time of 911 is about 24-45 minutes depending on where you live. The response time of my 1911 clone is about 1150 feet per second.

@Treena. <> These are not rights. These are wants. Who do you think should pay for your birth control? A retired farmer's widow? I do know believe you know what is defined as a right. A true God given right is: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Nothing in this statement is given by a government or anyone. You are born with these right. You want birth control, heath care, housing and food, get educated and fine a job.

hey trinna where was 911 the past few days. police cant be there for you every minute of the day. To say we should disarm ourselves is the dumbest argument ever. Im sorry if a guy break in it will take the police minutes to get to my house. yet it will take the perp less then a minute to clear my house. Ill just meet him at the door with my mossberg and he can either run away or ill use my right to stand my ground.

@treena: If you prefer not to own a firearm, please, please, do not buy one.

But if I see you being attacked or harassed by criminals, I will be happy to utilize mine as necessary to protect you. In most cases, criminals lose their bravado when they see there will be consequences for their actions. Don't try to take away MY right to help you out.

@treena You have obviously never been around guns or responsible people with guns. There are many law abiding citizens that hunt and enjoy being outdoors with their children.To deprive them of this would be selfish and uncalled for. Try attacking the real problem,

Guns and God have been apart of our history since the birth of our country. One has taken second stage in priority list,it does not work when you have "gun" control. What we need is "God" control back in our schools.

Hypocrites

Dianne Feinstein shouts loudly, in the anti-gun debate;

But Dianne F. is known to carry her own thirty-eight.

Though banning guns, The New York Times advocates with great fervor,

A rare New York full-carry permits its own Punch Sulzburger.

So if I may, their words re-say,

In light of what they do:

"Guns are OK,

for nobles – they;

But not for serfs like you."

Treena (probably not a real person) trusts police? Are you kidding me? I called the Sheriffs Office here in my county just the other day. Response?? "We'll be there right away". 48 minutes went by and there they were slowly approaching my residence. The shooter in Conneticut took much less time. No thank you, I will defend myself.

Treena, Having read your remarks. No disrespect intended but that is just plain unintelligent . You need to get your facts straight. Having grown up in Israel and serving 10years in Gaza,West Bank etc. We don't seem to have the same problems you do. See our teachers do carry, our children have at times armed escorts the people as a whole are very security conscious about what goes on around them. You should you desire to do so need not have a weapon. That's freedom of choice and that's wonderful. You just sit there and be a very nice victim.… Read more »

The Photo is of Diane Feinstein and not Barbara Boxer. Feinstein Does have a Permit to carry. She was on the Senate panel regarding the Assault weapons ban act in the early 90's. I remember her being called on out on the issue of her having a permit and her statement was basically…I am an important politician and there for I am smart enough to carry a gun unlike the average citizen.

What happened in Connecticut was truly tragic. But why would a teacher in Connecticut want to have weapons around (which her crazy son unfortunately used to kill her and then carry out his school massacre)? Could it have anything to do with the fact that Connecticut was ALSO the site of a horrendous multiple killing several years ago — the Cheshire murders of members of the Petit family? Perhaps Treena and other liberals who ascribe people's desire to have guns to immaturity or psychological issues have forgotten about that. To refresh everyone's memory, two low-life scum-barrel ex-cons (let out of… Read more »

@Treena, that is one heck of a comment! Sorry I can't agree with much of what you said. Guns aren't the problem, people are. If a person wants to commit a crime or kill other people, it's gonna happen! As for 911, it takes time for calls to be answered. By that time, someone could be dead. One last word, you state that our only hope is Obozo! Don't place your hope in him. He will be our downfall. You have a really messed view of things!
