Consequences of 2018: Mad Nadler Attacks Our Rights

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan)
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan)

Washington, D.C. – -(AmmoLand.com)- You can’t say that there was no warning. Last year, Ammoland discussed how our rights would be at risk with Jerrold Nadler as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. At the time, I noted, “In terms of his voting record, Nadler is just as bad as Charles Schumer and Dianne Feinstein. There is one major difference – he has just been much more low-key, and as a result, he is under the radar.”

Well, Nadler is no longer under the radar, folks. Furthermore, he’s left no doubt that he is just as bad as Feinstein. Oh, he doesn’t have a “Mr. and Mrs. America” moment, but according to Cybercast News Service, he has embraced Australia as an example when it comes to firearms ownership. Which, for all intents and purposes, means he wants to confiscate your modern sporting rifles, your modern multi-purpose shotguns, and even your old pump-action shotguns that were handed down from your parents or other relatives.

But Australia-style goes beyond that. One has to show a “genuine purpose” to own a gun. And as is the case with the so-called discretionary-issue states (really no-issue states as a general rule), self-defense is often not considered a good reason to have a gun. Australia is the “needs-based” licensing system of Sarah Brady’s dreams. Oh, and you can forget concealed carry of any stripe, either. If self-defense is no longer a valid reason to own a gun… they why would they even think about letting you carry one?

And here is something that should wake a lot of people up: Jerrold Nadler thinks he can eventually pull it off. He’s thinking long-term, and he has a plan to get there. He knows that the current situation won’t let him get that Australia-type legislative package, but he can lay the groundwork to get it. In this, he has a far better grasp of strategy and tactics than many of those who deride the NRA as “Negotiating Rights Away” or who label Second Amendment supporters trying to effectively counter Nadler’s extreme anti-Second Amendment agenda as “Fudds.”

There were tons of close races for House seats this year… races that almost uniformly tipped against the most viable pro-Second Amendment candidates. How many of those who denounced the NRA or other Second Amendment supporters for insufficient purity empowered Nadler either through votes for third-party candidates or by sitting out the midterms? They didn’t defend the Second Amendment, they helped Bloomberg by putting Nadler in a position where he could go on offense.

But that offense is really not the big prize. Legislative and political battles are really holding actions for two to four years. The Supreme Court, while important, gives a longer respite of about two or three decades. The real battle is an ongoing one for the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans.

We won’t ever get Nadler, Chuck Schumer, or Dianne Feinstein to give up efforts to take away our rights over shootings we never committed. But that isn’t what we need to do. We can and must focus our efforts on convincing our fellow Americans that those anti-Second Amendment extremists are in the wrong to punish millions of law-abiding citizens who either wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights responsibly or who actually do exercise those rights for the actions of criminals and madmen.

This is a battle that cannot be won or lost with just a few pronouncements about the Second Amendment. No, this is an ongoing fight, and the right strategy and tactics, including coming across in the right way, will give us a better chance of having a more favorable political climate to win those hearts and minds.

    Ok, first of all I live in commie mid amerika ill in wah. We have so much bs in this state with our new commie goober only winning 5 counties in the state. But he had every dead person in the state voting for him as well. What I saw in the last mid term election was rampant widespread voter suppression with the mass media and internet services like Facebook twatter and utube scrubbing conservative messages stories and forwarding actual stories from other countries. This was accompanied by widespread voter fraud. Illegals, boxes of ballots for Democrat candidates being “found”… Read more »

    Another “dual-citizen” trying to disarm America. Just like Feinstein, Blumethal, Bloomberg etc.; Every Single Time.

    What people fail to realize, what people have a problem with, what people try to dismiss as antisemitism is the FACT the majority of these politicians are: 1) Former lawyers 2) Have allegiances to Israel 3) Belong to a political ideal supporting socialism/communism – think Bolshevik revolution This ought to open our eyes who is behind those who desire to take our guns away. It is documented historically – all countries/governments who took away guns & gun rights ended with socialism/communism. “The GOAL of socialism is communism.” – Vladimir Lenin It has NEVER ended any other way – always a… Read more »

    I think Nadler has a problem with “little man syndrome” and he wants to be the big guy in the gun removal from us big guys that tower over him. I don’t mean we just tower over him physically but mentally as well. What else can you say except that he is from NY and that is where they would put the enima if the country needed a bowel movement. He would do well in Aussie country because they are subjects rather than citizens.

    The Unconstitutional assault against us is being/has been indoctrinated into the minds of children in both, primary, and secondary schools around the country… by extreme leftist instructors, teaching activism/agendas, and trial by public opinion. They hold us guilty until proven innocent. Falsely accusing the innocent of the evil perpetrated upon them by their own peers, elders, and people in positions of authority! Bush tried to prevent every child from being left behind, now it seems some fell between the cracks.. We have survivors of demented shooters being raised up by Socialist Elites to overthrow our rights, trying to circumvent our… Read more »

    Here we go again…Harold HacksUpSome vomiting against disgruntled NRA members who call them out for them giving anti 2nd amendment RINOs “A” ratings and supporting infringements like Bumpstock bans and Red Flag legislation. Trying to place blame for the likes of Nadler on us is disingenuous on your part HAROLD! The more you insult us the further you push us against wanting to work within the NRA. Your attempts to shame us into falling in line are only going to fortify our resolve to send our financial support to TRUE 2nd Amendment groups and to defund the NRA.

    Spot on! Harold would obviously prefer slow motion suicide than a full on frontal attack. I’ll take the full on frontal so we can put these vipers to rest permanently.

    Tell Nadler to move back to Australia and stay there. We sure don’t need him or his crazy ass ideas here in America. Besides that, when Australia had the chance to vote to become a separate(from England) they voted to stay a colony. Are you kidding me? Australia is the size of America, England is a little, tiny country where citizens(oops, subjects) have no rights. Nadler why don’t you go live in North Korea!

    @Patriot, “Nads” Nailer is the kind that seeks power over others. He has found that power here. He won’t ever go back. The only answer is to defeat him at election. Get something on him. Find a candidate that can defeat him, and support that person. Or use a Russian technique!

    As President (NRA) Heston said, regarding his willingness to give up his guns, “From my cold, dead hands”. I believe this applies to every member of this forum. The traitors–Schumer, Feinstein, Nadler and Bloomberg–seem to not understand this. Their proposed proscriptions on our 2d Amendment rights are not quite the same use of governmental authority as, say, regulating how fast one may drive on a particular section of highway or what days of the week one may water the lawn in drought conditions. They are playing with fire and are likely, if they persist, to reap the whirlwind of their… Read more »

    Well said, Ralph. I would also add that our elected politicians (as if anyone didn’t know) use gun control issues as vote-getting techniques, in the same way that they have welcomed illegal aliens into the country in order to gain a larger voter base. As for me, I will fight for the Second Amendment and will continue to vote against any politician who tries to undermine the intent and meaning of the 2A. If we don’t fight for our God-given freedoms, we will lose them.

    Nader repeatedly stated in yesterday’s committee meeting 90% of Americans want expanded background checks. Not one Republican challenged his facts or broke down his phony gun related death figures. We need facts and we need a voice to get the facts out to the American people. Did you hear that NRA, GOA and other gun rights organizations?

    I am afraid the entire political system is broke and may never be repaired. The recent mid-terms proved that voting doesn’t matter any longer. Trump warned us to vote GOP. We did. The GOP lost the House NOT because the left got more votes unless you count all the dead people and illegal votes. Only a couple of GOP contested the votes and NOT ONE GOP brought up voter FRAUD despite ample proof. Add to that the ease with which even an 11-year old hacked the election machines and we have no reliable, trustworthy system to cast legitimate votes. The… Read more »

    This is America and not Australia and he is ignoring the fact that the crime rate went up in Australia when they took guns away from law abiding citizens because the criminals didn’t turn in their guns. The criminals in America want turn their guns in ( the difference in America is as I law abiding citizen I have Rights and I will not turn my guns in !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It certainly is. If this article accurately describes Nadler’s IQ and decision-making skills (which it does!), that waste-of-human-skin has NO business in any position of leadership – social, religious, or political.
