Skip to comments.NRA planning ‘the fight of the century’ against Obama
Posted on 01/16/2013 1:57:14 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
The National Rifle Association cast its opposition to Obamas plans as the fight of the century in a letter circulated at the 35th annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference, known in the trade as the SHOT show, in Las Vegas.
I warned you this day was coming and now its here, Wayne LaPierre, the NRAs fiery executive vice president, wrote in a fund-raising letter to the groups 4 million members. Its not about protecting your children. Its not about stopping crime. Its about banning your guns PERIOD!
The letter reflected the NRAs tough, no-holds-barred campaign against tighter restrictions on weapons and echoed a sharp video released by the group that calls Obama an elitist hypocrite for having the Secret Service protect his two daughters at school while saying that he is skeptical about armed guards in all schools.
The SHOT show draws more than 60,000 gun enthusiasts, dealers and manufacturers to see the latest weapons and accoutrements. The convention floor contains 12 miles of firearms displays, mostly military-style assault rifles, and many booths display the kinds of high-capacity clips the administration wants to ban.
On Wednesday, the brass from the NRA and other gun-advocacy groups spent the day in closed-door sessions planning a response to Obamas proposals, according to people close to the groups who spoke on condition their names not be used in describing internal deliberations...

I better hurry up and buy another gun before I can’t!
I like the way Governor Rick Perry put it. “The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president.”
The comments on the Wash Post website are quite telling.
They just can't help themselves. It's all about the scary guns.
AND can anyone teach these morons the difference between a "clip" and "magazine". Sheesh, my 9 year old knows the difference.
The MSM is enemy number one.
They need to be removed several pegs down.
Advertisers MUST be educated there is a MONEY COST to advertising on monring joe, CNN, IMUS (an anti-second nut), and any other performer.
Bankruptcy by association.
Is anything they say or do really going to matter in the end?
How does a dead girl show up at the memorial for Sandy Hook victims?
Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy is suggesting that the Sandy Hook massacre was really a hoax.
Tracy, who is allegedly known for his conspiracy theories, writes in his blog that the school tragedy was an orchestrated event created by the Obama Administration as a ruse to implement gun control. Connecticut officials understandably want the professor to be terminated.
Read his compelling story! His blog is here: http://memoryholeblog.com/2013/01/01/sandy-hook-the-illusion-of-tragedy/
“Is anything they say or do really going to matter in the end?”
You honestly said that with your tagline?
I did 3 weeks ago, a sweet Springfield XD40, 12+1, subcompact. I simply couldn’t find an AR anywhere so opted for personal protection.
Sometimes ‘conspiracy theories’ have very inconvenient facts embedded in them.
There is a video about this; too many things don’t add up.
Buffalo lawyer Jim Tresmond is filing a class action law suit against the NY law. Looking for a story to post...
Exactly! Who here really believes that Mr. Lee Harvey Oswald shot President John F. Kennedy?
Maybe Boehner, McConnell, and the other RINOs can co-opt “the fight” for their political benefit.
THIS is the way you fight!
Not like Boehner. Not like the GOP.
You say “We won’t stand for it!”
This how you get people to listen!
The whole time the Progs are ridiculing and tsk, tsk-ing guns on every liberal news show bunches of new people are hearing the NRA’s message. Many middle of the road, low info voters have never been exposed to this line of thought. You don’t win people’s respect by being a pushover. If they see the NRA acting in a strong manner more and more will start to agree.
I haven’t always agreed with everything the NRA has done in the past but they’re damn sure singin’ my tune now!
interesting is an understatement. Big Brother is here.
I’m gonna re-read Animal Farm and 1984 tonite. I want to be prepared for what’s coming...
Wonder what gun owners will have to wear on their clothing? I guess instead of a gold star it will be a bulls’ eye target.
After all, they don’t want a good crisis to go to waste...
Rick Perry was my choice out of the box precisely because of his views on the Second Amendment and freedom of religion. He was way ahead of his competitors on those issues. Those are the issues we should have cared about.
Ny lawyer filing class action-need petition signees asap
