Biden Pledges to “Beat the NRA…” But He Can Not Beat the Citizen Gun Lobby ~ VIDEO

Opinion

Liberty, AZ, USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Joe Biden, in his self-proclaimed quest to “reunify” the nation, has declared his intention to “defeat the NRA.”

I guess he figures that’s a good place to start with his reunification campaign, since everyone in the country is in agreement that the NRA is bad… Well, at least everyone other than the Association’s 5 million, dues-paying members and the other 30 million or so gun owners who strongly support the NRA, along with the 75 million or more other American gun owners and patriots who basically agree with most of what the NRA does. Even those of us who are very critical of some of NRA’s leaders, are still strongly supportive of the organization itself and its goals. In fact, our complaints primarily revolve around some NRA leaders using the organization to pad their own pockets, and a general failure to stand by the core principles of the Second Amendment.

Biden made his declaration in a tweet commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the attack on former Representative Gabby Giffords, in which six people were killed and Giffords was severely wounded, along with several others. The attacker, a disgruntled leftist “progressive,” used a common and popular model of handgun, which he had legally purchased from a licensed dealer, after passing an FBI background check.

After praising Giffords, Biden said; “I pledge to continue to work with you — and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country — to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”

As is so often the case with politicians, it seems that Mr. Biden doesn’t seem to know what he’s talking about.

First, there is no “epidemic of gun violence” in this country – or there wasn’t until leftists launched their campaign to “defund” the police. Since then, there has been a significant increase in murders in a few big cities – almost all of which have had strict gun control laws in place for decades – but calling those isolated surges in criminal violence an “epidemic,” is a misuse of the word, in fact, it’s a lie.

It’s also disingenuous to single out “gun violence,” as guns are just tools, sometimes used for criminal violence, but dramatically more often used for sport, recreation, and lawful personal protection. The final absurdity of Biden’s statement, is his suggestion that the solution to ending “gun violence” is to “defeat the NRA.” What exactly does “defeat the NRA” mean, and how is that going to solve the supposed problem of “gun violence?”

The problem of crime involving guns certainly doesn’t come from NRA members or NRA supporters that are committing criminal violence. Nor does NRA enable or promote criminal activity with their opposition to useless and intrusive gun control laws. Even more significant, is the fact that the NRA is only the largest of many organizations representing the political interests of American gun owners, not the only such organization, and not the only way that gun owners can flex their political muscle in opposition to infringements on their rights.

Mr. Biden doesn’t seem to understand that, unlike the groups like Giffords’ and Mike Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, the NRA’s power and influence comes from its members and supporters, not their money and personal relationships with politicians. This confusion on Biden’s part can be excused, to a degree, as the lamestream media and the NRA itself, are often guilty of overstating the Association’s significance.

In their reply to Biden’s declaration, the NRA said; “He knows the only thing standing in his way to DISMANTLE THE 2ND AMENDMENT is NRA.”

That’s pure hogwash. What’s standing between Joe Biden and the dismantling of the Second Amendment is over 100 million responsible gun owners and other Constitution-loving Americans. As the largest rights organization in the battle, the NRA certainly plays a role, but suggesting that they are the only opposition, is utter nonsense.

As I’ve said many times, the NRA is not the “gun lobby.” You are the “gun lobby.” The NRA is a tool, employed by the “gun lobby,” but they are not the “gun lobby” itself. That title belongs to every gun owner and lover of liberty who supports individual firearm rights and opposes infringement of those rights.

On his website, Joe Biden says he plans to ban “assault weapons,” and “high-capacity” magazines, ban private transfers of firearms between friends and acquaintances, institute burdensome taxes on gun and ammunition purchasers (restricting firearms to only the wealthy and privileged, like Mr. Biden), and make it easier to take guns away from someone based solely on accusations, without opportunity to object or face their accuser.

Of course, the biggest error in all of this is the idea that banning, restricting, or taxing guns and ammunition, will change criminals’ behavior and somehow reduce criminal misuse of firearms. Not only will Biden’s plan not accomplish its stated goals, it will make criminals of otherwise law-abiding citizens. Few will comply with what they see as patently unconstitutional orders. This all leads to a high probability of innocent people being arrested or killed, along with injuries and deaths of those trying to enforce the unconstitutional mandates, all in the name of reducing “gun violence.”

Here’s the question for Mr. Biden and his supporters: How many innocent, patriotic gun owners are you willing to kill or incarcerate, in a futile effort to slightly reduce the use of firearms by violent criminals?

Since the protests, rioting, and looting of last summer, culminating in the movement to “defund” the police, murder, and other violent crime has surged in several cities – predominately Democrat-controlled cities with strict gun control laws. But Biden and company will blame the surge on “lax” gun laws and the defenders of gun rights who fight against stricter regulations.

Now more than ever, it’s up to all gun owners to step up and take their rightful place as members of the gun lobby. It’s up to you, to contact your senators and representative, to let them know that you strongly oppose enactment of additional restrictions, bans, or taxes on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition. Whether your elected servants are solid Second Amendment supporters or rabid gun prohibitionists, contact them and politely, but firmly let them know that you oppose these measures and want them to oppose them as well. Every little bit of pressure matters, and even the most stalwart anti-rights politicians have occasionally been known to see the light, once they begin to feel the heat, so light a fire under them.

Maybe Joe Biden can “beat the NRA,” but there’s no way he can beat you when you stand shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow patriots as the Gun Lobby. It’s up to you. You Are the Gun Lobby, and all of these politicians ultimately work for you.

In my opinion the Harris administration desperately needs a scapegoat to keep the focus away from the factions in their party. There is no way they can deliver on most of what they promised and they know it. In order to explain away their failure to make good on those ridiculous promises they need something or someone to move the focus to. The NRA works well for them and since they are ignorant about the 2A community, as are the majority of their constituents, we get lumped in with the NRA. Just watch and see what happens when AOC tries… Read more »

I once belonged to the NRA. I found that having their sticker on my truck brought violence to my door in kommiefornia so I removed my stickers because I could not get a gun permit for those violent occasions usually as road rage and being followed into parking lots. Now I live in Oregone and I wear my stickers proudly. I stopped being a member of the NRA for a couple reasons. Mostly in 2008 I couldn’t afford it and the the other was I felt harassed for money constantly. Currently I do not belong to any clubs and it… Read more »

Personally, I find it insulting and quite disgusting that a submoron like Joe Biden is blaming the NRA, the oldest civil rights organization in this nation, and its members for the violent crime committed with firearms in this nation. In simple point of fact (and of course, the Left is not concerned with such trivial matters as “facts”), firearms owners, and NRA members in particular, commit crimes – of any sort – at a far lower rate than the general population. A fact conveniently always ignored by the Left. And another fact they ignore is that criminals, by definition, do… Read more »

One thing you need to understand is Shotgun Joe, and the NRA have alot in common. They both have sold their positions for money. Shotgun Joe along with Hunter as was proven from Hunter’s laptop, and the NRA with their A grades for anti gun politicians. What could the NRA have to gain from giving high grades to anti gun politicians except, you decide!

“Here’s the question for Mr. Biden and his supporters: How many innocent, patriotic gun owners are you willing to kill or incarcerate, in a futile effort to slightly reduce the use of firearms by violent criminals?” Reducing the use of firearms by criminals is not the Marxocrat purpose for gun confiscation. Their purpose is to take our liberty, our property and our lives to create their delusion of a Marxist utopia. Destroying the NRA is not destroying an organization. It is to destroy us. Biden and the rest of the Marxists are declaring war on us. We are not considered… Read more »

We are the NRA, not the BOD or lobbyists but we the members. This is a personal attack on us members. Trying to destroy the NRA is “waking up a
sleeping giant.”

Joe Biden to Gabby and Cosmonaut Mark: “Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others.” Inspiring others to fight a losing battle. The answer is no. Just say no. The feds can pass all the laws they want. If those laws are not Constitutional they shall be nullified by states, counties and cities and most importantly by The People. I shall keep and bear the arms that I deem appropriate to my personal security. That right goes all the way back to Roman times. Strength in numbers. Do not become surrender monkeys like those who… Read more »

Lapierre is not the NRA. He needs to go, but the organization remains dedicated to the principals on which it was founded. Sniffy Biden is using the NRA to attack all of us gun owners in general. Not the time to fight amongst ourselves.

They referred to President Trump as just Trump, we need to refer to Joe the kamalatoe as just biden. Let’s show the same mentality towards the lefts choice for president with the same respect they showed ours. It should always be referred to as biden, not our president.

I always have used the title before referring to President Trump. Biden will just be “Biden” to me because, like Obama, he’s not my president.
I flew the Gadsden flag for eight years during Obama’s term. I flew the stars and stripes for President Trump. I will be flying the Gadsden flag again after the 20th.

In the UK and in Australia the weapons of choice are screw drivers, 1 inch diameter steel pipe and wooden bats. People will do evil even if they have to use their own body parts as weapons. Focus on intent and behavior. The implements come in an endless stream of supply and fit the ability of the defender. Relative force is still force. Focus on intent.
