Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- The group Media Matters for America hates NRA.
Few organizations have more strongly proclaimed their disdain for our right to keep and bear arms and self-protection.
According to a recent FoxNews.com op-ed piece by acclaimed author and scholar John R. Lott, Jr., in April alone, the George Soros-backed Media Matters ran no fewer than 32 articles on its website attacking NRA.
And Media Matters hasn't limited its vitriol to NRA; it's been attacking Lott as well. According to the article, since January 2011, Media Matters has criticized Lott in 25 pieces.
Media Matters' latest hit-job, “John Lott Continues Media Tour In Defense Of ‘Kill At Will'” (http://tinyurl.com/7nwbnou) attacks Lott and “stand your ground” laws, in a feeble attempt to make political hay in the wake of the Trayvon Martin case.
Media Matters and the anti-gun media would have you believe that guns are evil. They don't want you to own guns and they don't want you to use them. As such, we can expect them to play fast and loose with the truth when they report on our issue, and we can expect them to continue their vilification of guns, gun owners, and pro-gun laws.
NRA always has and always will advocate the passage and preservation of self-defense laws. That's what really matters.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
