BELLEVUE, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- President Barack Obama told White House reporters that the nation should be ashamed if it has forgotten the Newtown tragedy, but the real shame is that the president and other anti-gunners have exploited that crime to push a gun control agenda that has nothing to do with Sandy Hook, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
The president is putting the full force of the White House behind gun control measures, and he took the opportunity to tell the nation “Shame on us if we’ve forgotten” the Dec. 14 outrage.
“Shame on you, Mister President,” declared CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “for trying to capitalize on that tragedy to push an anti-gun agenda that has been on your wish list since before you took office.
“We haven’t forgotten Sandy Hook,” he continued, “nor have we forgotten that during the first weeks of your administration, Eric Holder floated trial balloons about renewing and expanding the ban on modern sporting rifles. We also haven’t forgotten that your administration tried to exploit the Fast and Furious debacle to expand gun regulations in the Southwest. We haven’t forgotten that you extended executive privilege to thousands of documents subpoenaed by Congress that are related to that disgraceful operation.
“The shame is on your administration and your allies on Capitol Hill and in the gun prohibition lobby for pandering a tried-and-failed strategy of gun bans and backdoor registration schemes as a panacea to crime,” Gottlieb stated. “Shame on you for your ‘we’ve got to do something’ harangue and then admitting that it will not prevent further violent crimes.
“For Barack Obama to suggest that the nation should be ashamed for not blindly submitting to his gun grabbing political agenda is not simply arrogant, it’s absurd,” Gottlieb remarked. “His attempt to create national guilt because millions of citizens refuse to be subservient to his political desires sounds more like the rant of a spoiled emperor than a sensible president.”
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

I feel sorry for people who get killed by criminals but refuse to own it by telling them so. Any gun group that tried to do so, is pretty much owning what happened, as the president and press want us to. The shame is on them for blaming the wrong people which will not solve anything. They just want to make even more easy target for these criminals and if they are counting on us to obey any laws they pass, on this, they better give up on that and start blaming and looking for real criminals. If they insist… Read more »
The present political system all of the 535 “elected” officials have forgotten the reason this system was created.
The entire system has been hijacked by the banking and corporate elite. They no longer work for the people.
When are we going to get 2 way communication here?
When it comes to addressing the gangs and the drug dealers there is really only one way to handle the situation and that is to hunt them down and end their crime sprees.
The CIA runs the drug scene in the USA today all for the Elite.
I will now be quite blunt. I’m originally from the Chicago, IL area. Barack whatever his name really is, is a worthless communist Nigger that needs to be impeached soonest. I saw him at a college basketball game today. This must have cost we taxpayers a huge sum of money for this waste of skin to be there,
Gun control is hitting what you aim at.
We have NOT forgotten. We are just waiting for the liberal gun grabbers to take some serious action to reduce violent crime. They have not said ONE word addressing the gangs, drug traffickers, and assorted organized crime figures that they know about. Where is the concerted action where it is really needed ? Oh, I forgot, it’s easier to go after law abiding citizens who, for the most part, always want to do the right thing.
The GREATEST shame to ever fall on the United States of America is the re-election of Barrack Hussein Obama , followed closely by his election . He is a piece of evil excrement and so is everyone that voted for him .
