NAACP Uses Tragic NYPD Officer Executions to Push for ‘Sensible Gun Control’

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-  On December 20 2014 the NAACP Legal Fund issued a press release saying the execution of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos show “the need for sensible gun control.”

According to the release, we need also “need to thoughtfully address untreated mental illness.”

One thing the NAACP Legal Fund’s release said we don’t need to do is to “suggest a causal link between between these killings and the recent protests and activism focused on the serious issue of police violence against unarmed African Americans.” They suggest that pushing such a “causal link” may escalate “an already tense state through rumor and conjecture.”

The release then says:

Whatever motivation lay in the apparently troubled mind of the now deceased shooter of these officers, there is no connection between the peaceful protests of thousands of people of all races all over the country and, indeed, around the world, and these hideous act of violence.

MORE TO THE POINT:

The NAACP does not mention that the attack on the officers took place in a state with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country–laws which were impotent against the criminal desires of the gunman.

To my Democratic and Liberal “friends”. Do you not see the absolute total stupidity being expressed by the NAACP and their call for more gun control? You took a hell of a shellacking in the last election–due in no small part to your irrational, unworkable stand on gun control. The facts and the public are against you. Can you not learn from your devastating losses and start looking at the FACTS and STATISTICS regarding gun use? How about working for true crime and violence control? There is much that can be done. Damn! I do wish you’d come to your… Read more »

Unfortunate that two NYPD officers lost their lives by coward assassin.

Nobody could have stopped him because NYC is a gun free zone,
unless you are very, very well connected with One Police Plaza and the NY Mayor Office.

Aren’t these the same people that claim they want to do away with “institutional racism?” More BS. The NAACP us a racist organization just like the Congressional Black Caucus and more. And don’t forget, most if not all of them are democrats. And everybody knows what liars they are. Ever notice they always have the answer to unasked questions and when tested, the answers don’t really work? Surprise, surprise.

How does punishing law abiding citizens help crime it makes them victims. SO remember the NAACP Legal Fund wants YOU to be a… Read more »

This is a bad joke. The same public figures who, since Ferguson Missouri, promoted the myth that cops target minorities with the intent of murdering them are now calling for more ‘gun control’. These people have as much blood on their hands as the assassin who murdered those poor NYPD officers. They go about ‘stirring up $hit’ and then blame guns for the acts of their minions.
