Well that certainly didn’t take long. Following the shooting in Newtown, the NRA stayed on the sidelines for almost a week, trying to allow the families time to grieve and heal before they were thrust into a fight over gun control. Naturally the gun control activists didn’t have any such compunction and used the NRA’s self-imposed time out to pummel the civil rights organization. This time the NRA isn’t sitting idly by while the New York Times demands that the U.S. Government begin a program to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens . . .
From the NRA’s Facebook page:
The NY Times editorial, along with President Obama’s attempt to blame the NRA’s 5,000,000 members for the events in San Bernardino, should serve as a wake up call to law-abiding gun owners across the country. Reaffirm your commitment to the Second Amendment by signing this pledge to Stand and Fight with the NRA: http://act.nraila.org/
OK, this one isn’t much, but the NRA has shown recently that it can be much lighter on its feet, responding to attacks much more quickly. At least they’re doing something to combat the constant cries from the usual suspects that our rights need to be revoked in favor of the appearance of safety.
