Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Last week, a retired Tulsa, Oklahoma law enforcement officer testified in a Congressional hearing that she “would not comply” if Congress passes a ban on firearms. Her bold assertion earned her national media attention and viral status on social media. Dianna Muller, who is the founder of a non-partisan Second Amendment advocacy group called the DC Project, is also a proud NRA Member. We caught up with Dianna after the hearing.

Q. Did you intend to make such a bold statement to the members of the House Judiciary Committee?

No, not at all! Earlier in the hearing, a gentleman in the audience interrupted the hearing and asked to testify on behalf of the millions of gun owners who would not comply with an unconstitutional law.  I turned around and saw the shirt he was wearing that said, “we will not comply.”  In my testimony, I refer to him and say, “I’m with the gentlemen that was escorted out, I will not comply.”  It was just an honest conversation I was having with members of Congress.

Q. The chief of police in Charlottesville, Virginia also testified at the hearing. She said she believed all guns should be banned. When given the opportunity to walk back her extreme statement, she doubled down.  What was going through your mind at that moment?

Like Americans everywhere, I was stunned. I wondered, does she not remember her oath of office to uphold the Constitution? Later in the hearing, she said she was ashamed of me for saying I would not comply with an unconstitutional gun ban. The feeling is mutual.

Q. What was the main message you wanted to send to Congress in your testimony?

I want them to know that we are not the monsters they make us out to be. I want them to know that the firearms community in this country is doing something to prevent violent crime. We are leading the way on meaningful safety measures with programs such as Project Childsafe, Eddie Eagle, or the Kid Safe Foundation that teach kids about firearm safety.  ‘FASTER Saves Lives’ and School Shield are school security programs, and ‘Walk the Talk America’ is a suicide prevention program.  These initiatives are being driven by the firearms community.  If Congress really wants to make a difference in gun-related deaths, I urge them to get behind these programs and fund them. Because we believe one life unjustifiably taken is one life too many.  Education over legislation.

Q. Can you tell us a little about the DC Project and what it does?

I am an accidental activist. Four years ago, I came to Washington, D.C. as a tourist and during a haphazard meeting with my congressman, we discussed how I could use my experience as a competitive shooter and retired law enforcement officer to help dispel the misinformation about guns and gun owners that was rampant on Capitol Hill. With that mission in mind, I formed a non-partisan group of women from all 50 states who come to Washington each year to share their expertise on firearms with lawmakers. The women of the DC Project are Second Amendment advocates who represent a cross section of America.  Many of our women have endured unspeakable violence themselves or lost loved ones. We come to Washington each year to advocate for the Second Amendment. We want to be the new face of gun owners in America.

Ms. Muller has very eloquently expressed what every supporter of the 2nd amendment to our Constitution knows to be the absolute intention of the amendment’s authors when the amendment was originally drafted. Ms. Muller is to be commended and applauded for her public stance on one of today’s most critical issues in the greatest country on Earth, The United States of America.

BE PREPARED!

Meet the police officer who enforces every single arms law we have as well as every other unjust and/or unconstitutional law. Infringement doesn’t start at a ban.

I stand with her. We need to draw a hard line and say no more.

Appears I have to add Dianna Muller as a favorite ‘heroine’ to my other ‘one,’ Dr. Susanna Hupp in her testimony before congress. This, sadly, will have the same impact with those clowns, pretending to represent “We The Serfs” as did Dr. Hupp’s presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvTO-y-B2YM
Pay attention to whom she credits the death of her parents. Also, observe the ‘condescending’ smirk on that purveyor of “The Camel’s Nose Under The Tent,” Senator “Scrumer” Schumer, and that whack is STILL there????

@Firewagon,I think Susanna Hupp was the lady whose both her parents were murdered at Lubys at Killeen,TX in ‘91 ! She was instrumental in getting Concealed Carry passed in TX and signed by Gov.Bush too in ‘94.

Yessir, yessiree! Even years later she continued to speak out about our “save us from ourselves” legislators NOT making us safer, but MORE at risk!! She is the very reason and ‘motivation’ I have in formulating “my” (YMMV) credo: “I will obey NO man-made law that would deny me my “God Given Right” to self-defense of myself, or mine, by ANY appropriate means, ANYWHERE!” That dastardly 2nd Amendment is appreciated but NOT required……AND, that cowardly SCOTUS is no help in their sad attempt to ‘Amend’ that Amendment by decreeing a place, the HOME, as where ‘the Serfs’ have the right… Read more »

We need more like her, and less NRA (Negotiating Rights Away – since 1934)

The article didn’t say, but did she call out the police chief on her breaking the oath she took when she took office and ask for her resignation?
