NRA Slams Meeting with Biden
Free Beacon ^ | 1/10/13 | staff

Posted on 01/10/2013 1:38:41 PM PST by Nachum

The National Rifle Association met with Vice President Joe Biden Thursday and it did not go well.

“We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment,” the group said in a statement released Thursday afternoon.

The full statement:

The National Rifle Association of America is made up of over 4 million moms and dads, daughters and sons, who are involved in the national conversation about how to prevent a tragedy like Newtown from ever happening again. We attended today’s White House meeting to discuss how to keep our children safe and were prepared to have a meaningful conversation about school safety, mental health issues, the marketing of violence to our kids and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.

Well look, they HAD to say something PC. I mean of the NRA says "we're gonna march on Washington!" it might not be taken the right way.

Hey, didn't Obamsky just sign himself "Lifetime" Secret Service protection? ----> Today.

Nah... couldn't be. Just a coincidence. Really.

The dems no longer bother with pretenses anymore. They already have their plan and don’t need any input.

It’s funny really.

Biden had to go through the motions. The NRA went through the motions to show they were interested in real issues. I’m sure the NRA knew how this would go. Now they demonstrated they were serious about the real issue and can legitimately argue their position.

The executive order has already been written. Now the Whitehouse is going through the motions with the Attorney General to make whatever comes seem legit and thoughtful.

Can’t wait to see what is revealed in the envelope.

No, no, this can't be....dear Joe just said today that what came out of today's meetings were a general consensus for "universal background checks".

Now, why would Joe distort the truth? /s

I’ve never held a gun in my hand and don’t have any desire to do so. However, a few days ago, I joined the NRA as a lifetime member. I want my Second Amendment freedom protected; whether I exercise that freedom is my decision.

"But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general"

Yeah, let's review the laws that drove the Feds (incl. H0lder) to go violently berserk at Waco and Ruby Ridge.

Impeach any elected official that attempts to violate the 2A. They are not upholding their oath of office and they need to be removed.

BTW - When asked why I need an high capacity semi-auto rifle I have been responding that I need it to defend myself against gun grabbing communists. Then I ask how long they have been a communist or are they just a communist sympathizer.

I went to the NRA website to read the message. It was short and sweat.

I would be interested in learning about what Ducks Unlimited, Shooting Sports Association and others had to say about the meeting.

Even more telling will be the meeting and responses from major retailers.

My personally feeling is that no matter what they heard Big Zero wants to implement (1) a high capacity magazine limit of 10 rounds on all weapons (and make them illegal retroactively), (2) impose high taxes on firearms and ammo, (3) impose a mandatory federal background check system on all firearm “transfers” whether they are commercial sales or parents giving them to children, and (4) ban so-called assault weapons based on cosmetic appearance.

I also expect to soon hear about import restrictions on a variety of firearms and ammo from overseas manufacturers and importers. I also expect to hear about the EPA declaring lead in bullets to be a major environmental and health hazard that should require the ban and disposal at federal collection points of all lead ammunition (bullets, cartridges, shotgun shells). Finally, I expect the CDC to be directed to develop public health programs to regulate firearms as a public health issue.

This is going to get so ugly.

At least the NRA is doing something to defend the Constitution against these petty tyrants. McConnell, Boner, et al. are MIA on this issue and on the daily threats against liberty by this administration.

Obama’s favorite MO seems to be hauling out the teleprompter and giving his “adoring” public a good little lecture (in response to some “crisis” or the other) about how “this is HOW it’s going to be done, so let it be written, so let it be done, and the Constitution be hanged!)

Biden talking about having something ready for 0dumbo by Tuesday. They are pushing this thing as hard and fast as they can. I agree with previous poster. 0dumbo already has the EO written and this Biden thing is all a sham.

Not trying to be alarmist, and I hope the rumor is not true, but just heard from a Pentagon contact that there were high level meetings at the Pentagon today, including Secretary Panetta, that was analyzing the role the US Military would play in a mandatory gun turn-in program or complete gun confiscation.

Again, I hope there is no truth to this rumor.

Not in the least. And I’m sure that neither the NRA, nor the American people are surprised, either.
Wonder if it will make the news.

plain talk ~:” The dems no longer bother with pretenses anymore. They already have their plan and don’t need any input.”

They had their minds made up ; no sense in being distracted by facts !
I got an email notice yesterday on the “Banned Guns” itemized , followed by a commentary:
“Attorney General gets carte blanche to ban guns at will: Under the proposal, the U.S. Attorney General can add any “semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General.”

Note that Obama’s pick for this office, Eric Holder, wrote a brief in the Heller case supporting the position that you have no right to have a working firearm in your own home. In making this determination, the bill says, “there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.” In plain English this means that ANY firearm ever obtained by federal officers or the military is not suitable for the public.

The last part is particularly clever, stating that a firearm doesn’t have a sporting purpose just because it can be used for sporting purpose — is that devious or what? And of course, “sporting purpose” is a rights infringement with no constitutional or historical support whatsoever, invented by domestic enemies of the right to keep and bear arms to further their cause of disarming the innocent. “

Biden wants to take away Civil Rights

CNN wants to take away Civil Rights

MSNBC wants to take away Civil Rights

Feinstein wants to take away Civil Rights

Obama wants to take away Civil Rights

Pelosi Wants to take away Civil Rights

repeat repeat repeat.

This is now a civil rights issue with Democrats taking away civil rights.

The agenda has always been more about banning all guns than about addressing violence.

Would you expect anything different from Slow Joe? Slow Joe was given a script and told not to screw it up. If he had screwed it up, they wouldn’t have allowed him to run as the Vice President on Hillary’s ticket (note, that he Peter Principled out a long time ago).

Remember when Our Dear Leader mouth these words, “Give me some space. This is my last election, after I’m elected I’ll have more flexibility.”
Maybe some will remember!
Maybe we all will see what he meant.
Maybe even those that voted for him will regret it!
Question to Biden and his ilk, How are you planning to take the guns from the Hoodies and Gang Bangers?

Liberals support abortion. They have repeatedly proven that they don't care about the safety and security of the nations children.
