Gun Groups Question Congressional Motives Behind NRA Investigations

Democrat's War on Guns
Is this a deliberate effort by anti-gun-rights Congressional Democrats to overwhelm the organization’s leadership and prevent NRA from fulfilling its mission to protect the Second Amendment?

BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Reports that the National Rifle Association is being engulfed in what one publication described as “a rapidly expanding tangle of congressional investigations” raise an important question that nobody has been asking: Is this a deliberate effort by anti-gun-rights Congressional Democrats to overwhelm the organization’s leadership and prevent NRA from fulfilling its mission to protect the Second Amendment?

That’s what the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms are wondering as House Democrats are pressing their gun control agenda.

“According to The Trace, which is funded by anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, Congress has launched six investigations of the NRA,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “With Democrats in control of the House, promising to push a full slate of gun control measures, that seems just a little curious.”

Gottlieb, who also chairs the CCRKBA, said it is fair to question an avalanche of investigations involving the NRA at a time when its attention should be focused squarely on renewed efforts to erode the Second Amendment.

“Are these investigations legitimate,” Gottlieb wondered, “or are they a deliberately choreographed attempt to distract the NRA’s focus when it needs to be concentrating on the battle now developing on Capitol Hill?

“We’ve been delighted to work with NRA on a number of efforts,” he continued, “including our successful lawsuits against the 2005 post-Katrina gun grab in New Orleans, the San Francisco gun ban, our joint challenge of Seattle’s attempted parks gun ban and our ongoing federal lawsuit against a gun control initiative in Washington State. So, when we see this kind of congressional onslaught at the same time Beltway anti-gunners are trying to ram through an aggressive gun control agenda, let’s just say our radar is up.”

Gottlieb said that if there are legitimate issues, they need to be explained to the nation’s 100 million gun owners.

“Otherwise,” he observed, “all of this may amount to a lot of smoke and mirrors designed to not simply distract NRA but to discredit it in the eyes of its members, supporters and allies when we all should be working together to defend our fundamental rights at a time when they are under unceasing attack.”


Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear ArmsWith more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) 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.

Back when we had the McCarthy hearings and the Red Witch Hunt. Many people claimed that the Witch Hunters were more interested in silencing liberals than in really catching Communists.
Now the Democrats are going after their enemies the same way. The NRA is only one of many groups they want to silence, soon they will be investigating anyone who isn’t a Communist in all but name.

When was the last time a civil rights organization was attacked other than the NRA and the other groups who support and defend the Second Amendment as well as the rest of the constitution? The millions of taxpayer dollars being wasted means nothing to the leftists, it’s not their money. The only thing that matters to them is controlling the masses because they know better than we do on everything.

The antigun Left will focus on Negotiating Rights Away because they are the SURRENDER MONKEYS of the 2A community.

Attacking them in lieu of the REAL 2A defenders will keep the fudds from realizing where they OUGHT to be sending their 2A defense $$$ in the months to come.

‘Nuff said!!

If you’re SERIOUS about defending the 2A, contact and support http://gunowners.org

Standard military stratedgy; divide and conquer. Always notice the communists democrats are all about gun control, but never criminal control. So its never about lowering crime, its always about government control of the people. And that is exactly why the 2nd Amendment was made, to prevent that control and oppression.

This remark hits the nail squarely on the head. No politician wants to address the crime problem in this country. And the other major point everyone seems to be missing, gun laws do NOT effect criminals, gun control does NOT effect criminals. When will our law makers get it through thier thick skulls that criminals don’t obey the law. So no amount of gun control is going to solve this problem. All the Democratic Regine is trying to do is have full control over what we can and cannot do in our everyday lives. I thought America was a free… Read more »

The Second amendment was guaranteed by our Constitution. We have the right to bare Arms. Especially when we have a democratic party doing every thing in their power to steal your weapons away so that they can have complete control of the people. No one can revolt against them if there are no weapons except what the democratic party controls. I am a proud member of the NRA. And I will not give up my weapons with our a fight. And if it comes to a fight, I will give you the bullets first. Of course they will be hot… Read more »

The Constitution is dead. GW Bush refereed to it as “…that damn piece of paper…” It is dead because not 1 elected official, very few judges and most attorneys do not follow it. It has gone by the way side but is “pretty” to look at. It is dead because we, as citizens, have allowed for untold laws passed and enacted that are against the Constitution. If the Constitution is purportedly “The Law of the Land, why have we let CONgress pass laws violating it? Why have we allowed judges to alter its meaning to suit their rulings? Why haven’t… Read more »
