I am just one man, but a man who has freedom in his heart. And the dream of every American is to live free, peaceably, and without fear, in a nation that millions have immigrated to because the United States of America gave them what their nation couldn’t. But yet I along with millions of other Americans hearts are bleeding as we watch you single-handedly attempt to destroy not just the core values of America, but the entire Bill of Rights itself. The only difference between me and those other millions and millions of Americans that despise your policies, is that I stood up. I decided that I could no longer live with myself without not only standing up, but also inspiring many others to stand as well. And I truly hope that this short letter finds you well through the miracles of social media, because my true purpose of this is to thank you . . .

You see Mr. Obama, if I wasn’t glued to my TV on that horrific day in December, I’d probably still be a “sleeping zombie.” But when I sat in front of that TV in tears with my wife, tears for those innocent children who were taken from their families long before they should’ve been, I would have never seen you addressing the nation with your fake tears, turning that tragedy into nothing more than a ludicrous ploy to push your ridiculous political agenda.

But when you did that, sir, you changed something in me, like the flip of a light switch turning on for the first time. You ignited a fire in the very depths of my soul; and at that instant, I realized why I was put on this earth. And you’ll be interested to know that things have gone very successfully. When you thought you were tapping into Americans’ emotions on that December afternoon, there were many others who saw right through you.

The push for gun rights in our great nation has never been stronger. You can try all you like, Mr. President, but America will always prevail. Because in the words of our founding fathers, “We The People” run this nation; not you!

Now we both know that your gun control agenda will accomplish nothing. After all, sir, you’re a very well educated man, an attorney, and the most powerful man in the free world. So surely, you and I both know that criminals don’t follow any law, any rule, any ordinance, or any policy. That’s why they’re called criminals.

This little organization that I started (Gun Rights Across America) right after the Sandy Hook tragedy motivated 150,000 Americans to stand with me on Jan. 19th at every statehouse in all 50 states, and now we have nearly a quarter of a million followers nationwide. No small task in just 7 months. And the reason for that is I have vowed to listen to the people, to listen to America, and they have clearly spoken. Perhaps you too should listen. WE DON’T WANT ANY NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY!

As long as you occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. attempting to explain how a tragedy occurred because of law abiding Americans guns, how America will be so much safer with laws that address how to disarm law abiding citizens but not criminals, and as long as I still have oxygen in my lungs, I’ll be in your shadows banging our drum as loud as we can for the good American people to hear. Because you may have been successful at breaking our economy, but YOU WILL NEVER BREAK AMERICA!

Respectfully yours,

Eric Reed
Gun Rights Across America, President

31 Responses to Gun Rights Across America’s Open Letter to Pres. Obama on Newtown Spree Killing

  1. Americans are waking up that the government and Mr. Obama care a whole lot more about their safety than ours. If AR-15s are indeed “weapons of war” that “only belong on the battlefield,” than the logical conclusion is that police should not have them (or that police / govrrnment is at war with the American populace). It takes a certain hubris well beyond common arrogance to hide behind a shield of firearms and determined men while simultaneously denying firearm freedoms to those who pay your salary.

    Statism, and the ignorance and arrogance contained therein, is perhaps the greatest single threat facing our nation today. Statists will gleefully expand government scope, cost, and tyranny while exempting themselves from its provisions.

    • I am not sure what all you mean by ‘Statism’ but if it is that more US policy decisions are made in the board room than in the voting booth then I understand what your are saying.

      • Statists believe “the State”, in our case the Federal Government, should control move and more of the lives of citizens. When the state expands, liberty is reduced. When government bands with boardrooms (or unions etc.) then you have crony capitalism, which isn’t capitalism at all, it is just Facism, where private entities own the means of production but the government controls those companies and therefore restricts the rights of employees, customers, stock holders etc. We need less Federal Govt to restore our liberty. Less state govt in most cases too.

      • A-Rod,

        Any entity that tells you what to do, tells you what you need, and denies your rights is bad. That is elitism. Some elitists want the State to be the entity that dictates your life. Other elitists want a board room to dictate your life. In the end neither one actually cares about you or your dignity. They only care about themselves and they view you as nothing more than a means to their end.

    • Maybe the rousing letter I just read is making me overly receptive but Accur81 I think you have something important here. When the ‘weapons of war’ meme rears it’s head we need someone repeating what you said about being at war with the American people. It’s simple, it’s true if you accept the anti’s premise, and it has a beat you can dance to. Sometimes just a phrase or two like that, well stated and often, along with the underlying concepts they represent are enough to mobilize the masses and produce real change.

  2. Very well written. Its a shame it will be filed with the royal toilet paper or royal fireplace kindling before Obama reads it.

  3. Sad part is the pres will never see that letter. He wouldnt care even if he did. Our politicians are so out of touch and self serving.

  4. I felt the very same that day, as soon as I heard the news of the shooting, I thought oh boy here we go. It didn’t seem possible that someone could do such a thing, and that the gun grabbers would jump all over this. I watch all day in total disbelief trying to phantom what the parents,first responders and everyone there was going through if I felt like I did 3000 miles away. That evening when the father came out and talked, I totally lost it, all the while thinking they’re going to come after my guns for this. I was mad at the N R A, and wanted my money back, I’d just sent. As more and more details came out,the more confused I was. I actually thought we were being set up. How could there be all this carnage and no other witnesses, where were all the other kids. Was it even real? The coroner seemed to be making a joke about the whole thing, or was drunk. I have watched the conspiracy videos and don’t know what to believe. Could our government do such a thing? I would hope not.If it was staged,I would hope that no children were actually killed.Just really seems weird to me.But I do feel that the government is using it to to try and get our guns. Every time some nutcase does something like this it’s going to help them push that kind of agenda on us. I don’t know what has happened to this country. We the people have had our heads in the sand far too much. We’ve let them go way beyond the limits of what should be. It’s really only a matter of time until it catches up with us, and topples over. It’s not going to be very pretty when it comes. We probably deserve everything that’s coming. There’s a book about this and we were not even mentioned in it,except maybe we’re the beast.

    • LAFOs (Law Abiding Firearm Owners) in Australia knew the fallout over Sandy Hook would spread even to here.

  5. Remember the reactions barry had to the news of the Boston Bombing and defeat of the AWB and UBC. He was outraged, livid, throwing a tantrum at the loss of the gun control measures. Flat, stone faced, almost bored at the news of the bombing. Soulless creature.

  6. Nice PR piece, but I agree it will bounce off the shell of the Progressive Elitists “We know what is best for you” mindset, if he is lucky,

    But keep spreading the word TTAG- its working, and thanks again.

  7. Phony President wiped away no tears on my 55 inch HD TV. It was total baloney when he spoke o the Sandy Hook children. What a fraud, by the undocumented illegal alien in the WH per the cold case posse.

  8. Newtown just brought to light the fact that gun violence affects everyone. The “stand your ground law” in Florida does the same. Take a trip across the boarder and see the violence that is still occurring in Mexico where people are fighting to protect their land. That is not an issue in the United States. I am sick of people blaming the President for a concern that he is voicing for millions of Americans. I am one of those Americans. I respect your rights to own a gun. Please respect my right to be concerned about them. As Americans we should all want our nation to be a safer place for everyone… especially our children.

    • As a school teacher for the past 30 years, I too was glued to the news after the shooting in the elementary school in Newtown. I had horrific dreams afterwards because like those children I had experienced gun violence in my childhood. I also realize that kind of thing could happen anywhere in America… even my elementary school. I believe in the right to bear arms but I do not believe in the right to hoard them. I do not have any idea why anybody would need to have access to the types of guns that were used in this killing spree. I also do not understand how it would hurt to have laws to limit who can get their hands on a gun. I have to sign my life away to take a little prescription that costs me less than $2.00 but I understand that there are people who abuse this drug. I never have. Why shouldn’t gun holders be held to the same kind of scrutiny?
