Sorry, Obama, Lawful Gun Owners Won’t Be Paying Penance For Acts of a Mass Murderer

Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- The following is the text of a statement released today by Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) Executive Director Richard Pearson:

“Within moments of police confirmation that a violent criminal had murdered students at an Oregon community college, CNN's Wolf Blitzer was laying the groundwork for the inevitable media and political broadside against the nation's law-abiding firearm owners.”

“And, true to form, the media and political hacks wasted no time in demanding that the nation's hunters and sportsmen pay the price for the crimes committed by [the unnamed Oregon gun man].”

“Leading Thursday afternoon's charge against lawful American gun owners was, of course, Barack Obama. Obama's well-scripted angst did little to conceal the political nature of his address to the nation. Obama was not shy in driving home his point that the only way to halt ‘gun violence‘ was for voters to vote gun-grabbers into office in 2016. Obama's remarks regarding how the United States should emulate other countries' responses to mass murder were a thinly veiled reference to Australia's oppressive ban and confiscation of privately owned firearms executed several years back. The most pathetic moment of Obama's address came when he suggested that gun owners revolt against the “organization” that claims to represent them – with it clear to all what “organization” he was speaking of. All in all, Obama's bottom line was that lawful gun owners should willingly accept at least some level of punishment for the murderous deeds of [the unnamed Oregon gun man].”

“The ISRA hates to disappoint Mr. Obama but the nation's lawful firearm owners won't take it on the chin because a bigot decided that Thursday was the day for him to murder Christian people. Likewise, the nation's lawful firearm owners do not owe anybody an apology for freely exercising their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. No, we will not buy into any notion that violent crime is our fault. We won't be submitting to unfair and burdensome regulation and we certainly won't be surrendering our firearms to the authorities. However, we will vigorously and enthusiastically protect and preserve our rights in the legislature, in the courts, and at the ballot box.”

“Like all people of good conscience, the Officers, Directors and members of the Illinois State Rifle Association extend their deepest sympathies to the friends and family of those students murdered by [the unnamed Oregon gun man]. We find it unfortunate that Mr. Obama's address was light on consolation and heavy on divisiveness at a time when the nation he has been charged to lead sorely needs cohesion and unity of purpose.”

Gunman, or just a hired “hit-man” for the Dem-Ol’-Cats agenda to rid America of it’s Constitutional Rights. Obama is a sleaze.

Time for responsible churches to start offering self defense and firearms training classes to their congregations…

Noted that there is not a single picture of the gunman nor has he been profiled or referred to as human excrement. Called gunman subhuman seems to only be reserved for Black mass killers when the victims are white or include whites.

One of the only things I miss about living in Illinois was being involved with the ISRA, and going to Springfield to lobby with IGOLD.

The imbacilic ramblings of an insane OCCUPIER of OUR White House is trying his best to follow his Socialist, Communist, Fascist, Nazi, DemocRATic HANDLER’s orders to destroy America. I as a law abiding gun owner do NOT accept any responsibility for the killings and murders that ‘b.obama’ and his minions are encouraging. I see very strong parallels between the shooters and ‘b.obama’. They all are of mixed heritage, black and white. They all have been abandoned by their birth fathers. They all have a HUGE ANGER towards others which do not accept their beliefs or actions. Can the Occupier in… Read more »

I’m constantly amazed at both the leap to condemn thousands of people for the actions of one, and the ease of doing so. For example, one man shot 9 people and it resulted in an attempt to erase a significant portion of southern US history by wiping out all things related to the Confederacy. Flags were pulled down, statues removed, stores pulled confederate items off of their shelves and a high school in Jacksonville, FL actually spent thousands of dollars to change it’s name. The Confederacy had nothing to do with that shooting, but was treated as an accomplice. The… Read more »

Thanks for saying what you said in such a good way. You told the world how many of us feel and believe. As a 72 year old lifelong hunter, outdoorsman and shooter, I agree with you. Why should I feel any guilt or pay any penalty either in money or loss of rights for the acts of an insane creep? Obama is writing checks he does not have to pay, people like Bloomberg or Soros will pay them, along with many brain-dead liberals who follow his dogma. Sometimes I believe that the anti-gun crowd has press releases prepared and just… Read more »

Perhaps some drone control to stop the mass killer in the white house… get rid of so-called gun free zones. That is the best (and easiest) way to stop a mass killer.

Drones controlled by who? You really want the gov’t to use drones on US citizens? Sure they would perhaps help in a situation like this but they would also be great for general crowd control of innocent people. I don’t trust this, or any other administration to not misuse such power.

Agent controlling drone:

-I don’t want this lame type of excuse process to happen anywhere in the world.

Isn’t it amazing how Obama blames everyone who doesn’t support his ‘agenda’ for whatever goes wrong in America or the World?
