Washington, DC – “The Obama administration attack on stand your ground laws suggests the White House cannot tolerate the individual right to self defense and the right to use force of arms in self-defense,” gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today.

“Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder,” noted Snyder, “said the other day with regard to stand your ground laws that, ‘it's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense.' The attorney general does not value stand your ground laws to protect the right to self-defense, to protect life itself from prospective criminal attack.

“This government does not recognize the natural right to life itself, let alone the right to keep and bear arms to defend life. It opposes the right to life, and now is trying to use its power to force people to act against their religious conscience and pay for insurance for abortion.”

“Basically,” said Snyder, “the Obama administration refuses to accept the concept of natural right. Whatever rights this government recognizes come from the state, and not from nature or nature's God.

“Obama just can't get off the anti-gun kick. Now he's using the recent Zimmerman verdict as a platform for promoting gun control.”

“In the case, a jury of six women exonerated Florida defendant George Zimmerman,” noted Snyder. “Zimmerman used a gun last year to kill an alleged assailant in self-defense.

“Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder and manslaughter, and the jury determined Saturday that Zimmerman was not guilty of the charges.”

“Now Obama thinks the case shows we need more gun control,” said Snyder. “As a Daily Caller headline expressed it this week, ‘Obama uses Zimmerman verdict to urge less gun violence, more federal intervention.'”

Snyder said, “Obama and his political and media supporters just can't seem to get through their heads that law-abiding citizens need to be able to get guns and use them in legitimate self-defense.

“About 100 million Americans own about 300 million rifles, shotguns and handguns. Americans buy over 10 million firearms a year and use guns in legitimate defense over a million times a year.”

Snyder said, “Obama and company don't understand that America is gun country. Firearms are at least as American as apple pie.

“People believe in the right of self-defense and in the right to use a gun in self-defense.”

    1. There are 2 reasons the gun grabbers are trying to criminalize self-defense. 1 Since they can’t outlaw guns they want to make using them illegal. An end run around the 2nd Amendment.

      2 They know that a people that can resist criminals can resist the govt. That fighting mentality can turn against them too. Witness how in the UK it is illegal to defend yourself. You’re supposed to just wait for the police.

    2. No one should be surprized what BHO and is statist party is doing or has in store for America. I pray we can outlast them.

    3. Obama doesn’t want anyone to have guns but the police, military, and body guards for the big wigs. No one else counts or have rights. He is trying to get any kind of toe hold in our gun rights, and so far, since Nov. he has struck out. He is batting Zero and it is driving him so crazy he can’t even think about anything else. He has done nothing but sell more guns and cause most states to pass more gun rights laws. Oh they have their occasional win in states that are going to always vote against guns, but they have already been written off as states and people who don’t want to defend themselves or their families.

    4. So, According to BHO, even black teenagers shouldn’t stand their ground or attack, but turn tail and run away.
      Try telling them that !!!

    5. Obama’s home state of Illinois has a ‘Stand-Your-Ground’ law. How did Obama vote on that? He was one of its co-sponsors.

    6. If Obama wants to act like the devil, then he needs to take his party back to hell, for I was born in one nation under God. Nuff said
