Circling Vultures…

…I received this newsletter from the Association for Gun Rights.
My thoughts and prayers go to the victims of this tragedy, but the knee-jerk reaction that is typical of liberals isn’t what will solve the issue of schools being targeted by psychopaths. The school was already a gun free zone. Gun free zones are ripe targets for deranged people. They know that there will be no one there that can resist. 

It’s time to arm the teachers in our schools. If only one of those six teachers was armed, it would have ended a lot sooner, and the gunman may have avoided the school altogether if it is well known that the teachers may be armed. Banning guns doesn’t work. Ask China.

The murders committed in Connecticut earlier today have left me feeling sad and angry.

Quite frankly, I’ve had difficulty staying focused, listening to news reports and thinking about my wife and two young children aged 8 and 11 at home.

I can only imagine the pain the parents and families of those who were murdered at the hands of this evil individual are feeling right now.

My prayers and those of my staff here at the National Association for Gun Rights go out to the families of the victims.

But already, like in so many cases from years past, the gun control lobby is shamelessly using the blood of innocents to advance their anti-gun agenda.

Right now, members of the Washington, D.C. gun control lobby are gathered on the street in front of the White House.

Their hands are wrapped around the black iron gates surrounding the complex and they’re screaming at the top of their lungs.

They aren’t there praying for the victims who died at the hands of a murderer.

One top gun control lobbyist scoffed at the idea of this gathering being called a “vigil,” saying they gathered for the sole purpose of “pressuring Barack Obama to take action.”

Right on cue, President Obama threw them a not-so-subtle bone when he urged “meaningful action” on gun control.

And just a few hours later, billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg demanded President Obama restrict gun rights.

Make no mistake — this is a dangerous time for the Second Amendment.

Like you, I’m outraged that not even 12 hours after the shooting, the gun control vultures are circling the victims.

The enemies of our Second Amendment rights want you and me to back off and give in to their demands.

But no defender of our gun rights should apologize for the horrific actions of a deranged lunatic.

What you won’t hear on TV or radio or read in the newspaper is that the anti-gun Brady Campaign lists Connecticut as having the 5th “strongest” gun control laws in the entire country.

Connecticut’s strict gun control laws prevent law-abiding individuals who could’ve potentially stopped this massacre from getting access to firearms.

In other words, the teachers and administrators entrusted with the security of the students were sitting ducks, and so were the children.

You also won’t hear that Connecticut law already bans at least one of the firearms that may have been used in these murders.

The gun-grabbers have spent decades in states like Connecticut passing gun control laws that do nothing more than empower criminals.

As Second Amendment activists we MUST be vigilant in these times — not just in the defense of our loved ones, but in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.

Gun grabbers seize upon every outrage and crime, so we must always be prepared to fight back to protect our Second Amendment rights.

You and I both know that Barack Obama and the gun control crowd will work every angle of this massacre as an excuse to restrict our rights.

Please do two things tonight: pray for the victims and their families, and then prepare for a gun control onslaught like we’ve never seen before.

Your continued engagement and activism could be the only thing that stands between our gun rights and President Obama’s coming gun control schemes.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

  1. I asked my kids if they had ever heard of Columbine, VA Tech, and Aurora. They said yes. I asked them if they had heard of Appalachia School of Law, New Life Church in Colorado Springs, or Clackamas Mall in Oregon. They said no.

    When the media don’t cover the heroes that stopped a mad man in ASL, the woman who killed a mad man bent on killing at her church, and the fact that the Oregon shooter was engaged by an armed citizen, they give glory to the criminals and heap dust on the victims in an effort to drive their agenda.

      I’ve noticed. And it’s a shame that we don’t have an honest media.
      They will pull on everyone’s heart strings and try to ram legislation down our throats that will do absolutely nothing to prevent psychopaths from killing people.
      Legislation passed after 9-11, the Patriot Act is a good example of feel good legislation, that didn’t do anything other than taking away our freedoms. And we were happy to let them do it.
      This is a fight we cannot lose, or we lose our freedoms.
