Beware of the Circling Gun Banning Vultures

The murders committed in Connecticut earlier today have left me feeling sad and angry.

Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- Quite frankly, I’ve had difficulty staying focused, listening to news reports and thinking about my wife and two young children aged 8 and 11 at home.

I can only imagine the pain the parents and families of those who were murdered at the hands of this evil individual are feeling right now.

My prayers and those of my staff here at the National Association for Gun Rights go out to the families of the victims.

But already, like in so many cases from years past, the gun control lobby is shamelessly using the blood of innocents to advance their anti-gun agenda.

Right now, members of the Washington, D.C. gun control lobby are gathered on the street in front of the White House.

Their hands are wrapped around the black iron gates surrounding the complex and they’re screaming at the top of their lungs.

They aren’t there praying for the victims who died at the hands of a murderer.

One top gun control lobbyist scoffed at the idea of this gathering being called a “vigil,” saying they gathered for the sole purpose of “pressuring Barack Obama to take action.”

Right on cue, President Obama threw them a not-so-subtle bone when he urged “meaningful action” on gun control.

And just a few hours later, billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg demanded President Obama restrict gun rights.

Make no mistake — this is a dangerous time for the Second Amendment.

Like you, I’m outraged that not even 12 hours after the shooting, the gun control vultures are circling the victims.

The enemies of our Second Amendment rights want you and me to back off and give in to their demands.

But no defender of our gun rights should apologize for the horrific actions of a deranged lunatic.

What you won’t hear on TV or radio or read in the newspaper is that the anti-gun Brady Campaign lists Connecticut as having the 5th “strongest” gun control laws in the entire country.

Connecticut’s strict gun control laws prevent law-abiding individuals who could’ve potentially stopped this massacre from getting access to firearms.

In other words, the teachers and administrators entrusted with the security of the students were sitting ducks, and so were the children.

You also won’t hear that Connecticut law already bans at least one of the firearms that may have been used in these murders.

The gun-grabbers have spent decades in states like Connecticut passing gun control laws that do nothing more than empower criminals.

As Second Amendment activists we MUST be vigilant in these times — not just in the defense of our loved ones, but in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.

Gun grabbers seize upon every outrage and crime, so we must always be prepared to fight back to protect our Second Amendment rights.

You and I both know that Barack Obama and the gun control crowd will work every angle of this massacre as an excuse to restrict our rights.

Please do two things tonight: pray for the victims and their families, and then prepare for a gun control onslaught like we’ve never seen before.

Your continued engagement and activism could be the only thing that stands between our gun rights and President Obama’s coming gun control schemes.

For Freedom,
Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

    Hey PoopingDog, we already allow adults to carry concealed in this country. But control freaks like you (who have no problem militarizing our police who take 6 minutes on average to respond versus 5 seconds like CC holders) took that right away by introducing "gun free zones" in schools, malls and theatres – what a coincidence. But let's make it tougher to carry concealed – let's be more like Chicago and Mexico, which have total gun bans for citizens and which NOT COINCIDENTALLY YOU MORONS are the DEADLIEST PLACES ON EARTH. Move to f*cking Mexico if you don't like the… Read more »

    I've seen a number of pro-gun posters suggesting that we now arm teachers, so the comments about arming students aren't so far-fetched.

    It's too late to pray for the victims of this tragedy, but it's not too late to begin taking the steps necessary to reduce the likelihood of it happening again – maybe in your neighborhood school.

    First of all, nobody has EVER suggested that elementary students should carry guns. Anti gunners always bring up senseless stuff like this, and oh, of course what about Bazookas, and Tanks and Bombs and Nuclear weapons? Come on, Anti's, get real. We are talking about QUALIFIED individuals of majority and who genuinely want to be responsible for carrying weapons. Not everybody would want to do this, Not everybody has the mental outlook to do this, even licnesed and trained people. All there needs to be in a school, or hospital, is a FEW GOOD MEN (or women) so that the… Read more »

    Every comment I read on this site and others is "take our guns", "want to take our guns", "Take away our gun rights"…etc etc. The common word is always "take". If you are so afraid of them taking your guns then you have already lost them. I see most if not all Americans with the "take" attitude as already having lost your rights. Might as well line up people cause gun control/abolition is coming and I don't see anyone here saying hell no.

    The two things we can do is pray for the families and attack gun control where ever and when ever we see it, in writing, as in this article. People have got to realize we aren't the bad guys!

    You are right, Dudley. We should pray for the victims, as long as we do not for one second stop making guns and trying to get them into as many people's hands as possible.

    Guns guns guns. We need more guns. Oh, and a few more teachers, too, to replace the ones we lost yesterday.

    But mostly, we need more guns.
