Sen. Schumer: NRA Fringe Group, Doesn't Represent Average Gun Owners, "Very Extreme"
Big Government ^ | 1-20-2013 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 01/21/2013 2:35:12 PM PST by Sir Napsalot

In comments made Friday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the National Rifle Association (NRA) is a "fringe group" that is "very extreme."

Moreover, according to Schumer, the NRA doesn't "represent average gun [owners]."

Schumer says that during the 1990s the NRA used their lobbying power to fill background checks with loopholes, thus leading to a situation where "40 percent of all guns sold in American have no [background] check."

You'll recall that Obama also used this "40 percent" claim when pushing for more gun control earlier in the week. This claim goes back to a 2011 study by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, where secondary, private guns were lumped in with new guns sales in an attempt to justify saying guns were entering the marketplace with no background checks whatsoever.

Push hard and frequent enough, 40 percent becomes 'A Known Fact'.

Everybody will accept their 'truth' then.

He wasn’t listening to Obama this afternoon! “No name calling”, Chuck!

You are bullying and name calling and spreading lies.

It's all part of the demonization and scapegoating process. Isolate the enemy, etc. Pure Alinsky.

I highly doubt this 40%. Any gun store you buy from does background checks. In some cases federal AND state.

Has he looked at www.ruger.com? Ruger set up in their website the means for gunowners to enter their address info and zip code that automatically send a pro 2A and no more new regulation email to every official (local, state, Congress and POTUS). It has been up little over 2 weeks. If you have not done it, recommend you do it ASAP. Please do not repeat, let the numbers shown be as accurate and honest as possible. NY do not give up, enter it also letting your Dem reps in rural areas know they kicked up a hornets nest. I think it has about 620,000 emails and climbing as I type. Right now politicians are in the voter sentiment counting mode. More emails, more they hesitate, because many Dems remember the last AWB and what it cost them. Here is another demographic hope, about 60 percent of young people say if they settle down, they plan to buy a firearm. Despite public school education, that scares the libs even more. NRA has the same survey, start marketing to young people and more women.

Anything to Shumer’s right he considers extreme. He said himself he always uses that word. And it’s become old.

I don’t think a day goes by where Schumer does not call someone on the right “Very Extreme”. Seriously. Repeat the lie enough and people will believe it.

And trial lawyers don't do the same? Are they "fringe" with illicit lobbying efforts, too?

Just as the TEA PARTY is a “fringe group” and “extreme” and the OCCUPY CROWD is a “mainstream movement of patriotic Americans”. - What little I saw of Obama’s Immaculation today, it looked like he was making a little effort not to stick his nose in the air and strike a “Stalin” pose.

OK, let's compare. How many gun owners are there in America, and what percentage of them are members of the NRA? Now, how many women are there in this country, and what percentage are members of the National Organization for Women?

OK, Senator UpChuck, based on the numbers, which group would you consider more representative of the members of its target group? I guess this means you'll have to ignore the NOW gang, since MOST women in this country have nothing to do with them.

And yet according to an NBC/WSJ poll recently taken the NRA is more popular than Obama.

What does that make his supporters?

But wait! I’m a gun owner and I think the NRA is a fringe group. I think they are a left-wing fringe group that is far to the left of most gun owners.

So Chuckie, baby, I agree wit youse. We need to send a real right-wing lobbying group to D.C. to compete with it and nudge the NRA in the right direction.

More propaganda for the zero information public. Schumer thinks that because he was able to talk his way out of complicity in the economic collapse of 2007, that he can lie about anything.

The 40% figure is the biggest bit of hokum I’ve ever read. I could just as readily say that 75% of Democrtats have an IQ under 65, and it would probably be more accurate.

The only true thing there is that many gun owners are not members of the NRA. I don’t think the black drug dealers and other criminals in the big cities join the NRA. But are they the kind of residents of the US he wants to be part of?

Sen Schumer represents 2/3 of the Jewish voter in the US. They support policies that will destroy their homeland, they will support Dems who have a leftwing and growing Arab wing that will vote policies that will destroy their homeland. The only thing they are good at is support bigger gov and higher taxes. In the private economy many work in Wall Street, and did a good job selling liar loans as AAA investments to the world and pension funds. Before freepers scream, think, blacks are 14 percent of US population, yet represent 40 percent of the crimes. Time to question their culture and values. Jews are 3 percent of US population, represent half of the leadership and key officers in Wall Street banks, and ALL of them under their guidance caused the S&L crisis in the 1980’s and repeat the same schemes in 2000’s. Wonder about their ethnic cultural values. At least the blacks can cover with lack of education and poverty, how will the Jews explain their elites behavior who went to Havard, Yale and etc and come from well to do families. At least Bill Cosby is raising it amongst blacks, who in the Jewish community is raising these failures in the Jewish community??
