Bethesda, MD – “The current mainstream media anti-gun blitz is failing to stampede the American public into support for more restrictive gun control laws,” gun rights expert John M. Snyder observed today.

Snyder noted, “A recent Rasmussen survey following the horrendous Connecticut elementary school multiple murders last Friday shows this. According to the national survey of 1,000 adults conducted on December 17 – 18, only 27 percent think stricter gun control laws will do the most to prevent such shootings, 48 percent believe more action to prevent mental health issues will do the most, 15 percent put the emphasis on violent movies and video games, and 10 percent are undecided.

“This poll comes during a barrage of hysteric anti-gun propaganda coming out of the tube and other media outlets. The message is that big media is not a big hit with the American public.”

“Of course,” Snyder continued, “gun-grabbing political tools like President Obama and others are trying to take advantage of this situation to push their agenda. That's to be expected. They wallow in the blood of the innocent to try to get what they want.

“On the other hand, statesmen stand four-square with the individual Second Amendment civil right of law-abiding American citizens to keep and bear arms. On Tuesday, Rep. Robert W. Goodlatte (R-VA), selected to chair the House Judiciary Committee in January, told CQ Roll Call that ‘he does not favor tightening controls on firearms' and ‘has shut down talk of gun control in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut massacre.'”

    1. Seems others are onto the idea of a ‘controlled subject’ doing these mass shootings to gin up emotion to further the anti-gun rights agenda of this crew of criminals. If they can deliberately hand ‘assault weapons’ to drug cartels, KNOWING they will be used by criminals to kill others, why is it such a stretch to believe they would not do the same in a school? It certainly ginned up a bunch of anti-gun sympathy, right?

    2. Thank you to a patriots who see through this creepy propaganda campaign. It is very difficult to be even semi intelligent and listen to this spew. Stay strong and calm and smart.

    3. Obama better learn to respect Our Rights, and the US Supreme Court already found the 2nd Amendment is an Individual Right, just as I always said. Obama needs to go back home, to Kenya! Dianne Feinstein carries a gun, but has been pushing gun control for years, for us common people!

    4. Sheepdogs ward off wolves, about time for that Revolution, I’d say! No? Well then, just keep on “Bendingover N Takingit”. God Almighty, how I try to instill the cause for Liberty!

    5. Let me be very frank here. Just who or what is being put on trial here ? It surely is not the shooter, or the mother. Why it is the “infamous” civil right of the 2nd Amendment! Wow, talk about “judge, jury, and executioner”! Are these not the very words of all the leftist, the tyrants, and the liberals? Of course they are. Why, because when WE use an armed self defense in our favor to stop a violent confrontation, they cry. So now, they want no judge, no jury, just the executioner to hang and bury our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Folks, it is never going to end. They lie, and they kill. Where are the Sheep dogs? The N.R.A. spoke today, and they had alot of truth and ideas which will work.

    6. If you want to look at something staged to fire the people up for gun control, “Fast & Furious” was it. This was a crime and murder that the ATF and administration allowed to happen. Can’t blame guns, the dealers called the ATF and they told them to sell to to the Mexicans. “Fast & Furious” meant a fast and furious way to take away our guns. Congress need to bring Obama up on impeachment proceedings for his cover-up of it. People were and still are being killed because of this hoax by ATF & the president.
      The NRA says we need armed police in every school. There is no way this will work. Besides the cost to do that, these people will just go to other crowded places. Take away their identity buy not allowing the police to release their names or pictures, ever. Call the John Doe, give them a number but no name or pictures even when they go to trial or prison. The fame and glory the media gives these people is what fuels them, not guns. Guns are just one tool and they could use a whole lot more different tools if all guns disappeared today. Take away what fuels them and they will go away. It won’t cost the tax payer a dime and it is the only thing that will work. People say,” well, this kind of thing didn’t happen until the past 20 or so years so it has to be more guns out there”. Could it be that we have cheapened lives since then by murdering 785,000 babies a year in the name of birth control? What are our kids supposed to think, we taught them there is no value to human life.

    7. It doesn’t matter. Obama will take away the guns by executive order, if he has to. He has to, the impending food riots, wide spread joblessness, homelessness, starvation, lack of prosecution of the bankers who did it to us, will be impossible to control, if the people have guns. What 9/11 did to the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th Bill of Rights Amendments, Sandy Hook will do to the 2nd.

    8. Anyone who believes that bam-bam and his cronies are incapable of putting an act of this horror and magnitude together has a very short memory. Remember ‘workplace violence’? What about the real eye witnesses who saw additional people being chased and taken down near the school? Where are they today?
      He has all his ducks in a row. Now that we’ve had a very successful horror incident played out on us (and the poor people of Newtown CT) it’s a great time to take our 2A rights and destroy them under the guise of ‘it’s good for all the citizens’. Anyone ever hear of Germany in the 1930’s? The first thing done after taking over the press, causing a great hatred of a group of people (the Jews), all the guns were removed from the population. We know how well that worked out.

    9. well stated and we are aware of bam bam’s plans.he is a mad man.his agenda is to kill every one of us.we know it and we’re waiting.i guess they’re stupid enough to think the only ones doing the shooting will be his people.his stupidity and hypocrisy has no bounds.

    10. A very, very scary thought indeed.
      The norm for prohibitionist, leftist and the like. Stay loose, the egg shell is ready to crack open. And out will not jump a chick, but the truth of the matter.

    11. The Sandy Hook Hoax is coming apart by the seams. They are now hiring actors to portray parents of children, they released the team of assassins who were arrested in front of 100’s of witnesses and the evidence of the medical examiner and ballistics don’t match. If Lanza were alive, no jury in Amerika would convict him based on the botched evidence.

      The more they cling to the story the more they appear to be the murderers.

      We can thank Nick Meli and his concealed Glock 22 for saving the 2nd Amendment at the Oregon Mall. The horrible truth is that when he stopped the young drugged shooter after only two deaths, he made Sandy Hook (Plan B) necessary for Obama to get the death count he desired.
