It's been two months, and it's happened again: a Muslim with links to the Middle East, radical Islam and terror organizations has killed on American soil. Forty-nine innocents have died, with a like number injured. The Administration, Progressive politicians and the media immediately lept to the attack - not against this new, emerging threat, but at their old, bitter blood enemy: the Nation's gun owners.
Politicians and activists sprang before the cameras demanding their
usual nonsensical "common sense" nostrums with well practiced ease. They
scrupulously avoiding more than a passing reference to the fanaticism
at the attack's core. Our feckless leader whined about being criticized
for never using the words Radical Islam - while still never actually
using the words Radical Islam. However, he's very definitive about the
unconstitutional secret gun ban list and reviving the ineffectual
Clinton assault rifle law. Hillary danced through the blood to slam her
opponent for supposedly "engaging in inflammatory, anti-Muslim rhetoric
that made the country less
safe." <unqoute> She also waved the bloody shirt at gun owners and
The media has gleefully hyped the
tragedy, incessantly scoring the Orlando attack as the largest gun
massacre. They're refusing to provide the context of the Paris, London
and Russian attacks. They're also completely ignoring the largest night
club massacre, where an immigrant used just a single gallon of gasoline
to immolate 87 victims; it just doesn't fit the narrative. And Orlando
wasn't even near the toll of the largest American mass killing.
The Left's long running hoplophobia is in full flame: They're trying to
make sweeping changes based on this one tragic incident that is
thankfully extremely rare. Nonsensical "common sense" solutions, are
flying around at the speed of opinions. The left is intent on destroying
the Enumerated Rights of hundreds of millions of Americans in the
demonstrated ridiculous hope of keeping arms from jihadists who are
supported by terrorist organizations able to span the globe. After all,
the terrorist in Paris had no trouble getting fully automatic AK-47s for
It's going to get worse - much
worse. The Administration, Progressive and media attacks will escalate.
As will the terrorist attacks. We will very likely need our weapons
exactly when they are being threatened by the left. Fight the threat
that the administration is importing, assisting and enabling. Fight the
threat that political correctness will not challenge. Fight the madness
that the Progressives will allow destroy us. Ensure that our political
leaders still retain enough backbone to first for the Constitution and
the citizens. Join the NRA. Fight for our future. Fight.
the way: the largest American mass murder we mention before? That was
at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, where 150 men, women and children of the
Lakota Indian Nation were murdered by the US Government. The attack came
shortly after the Lakota's were disarmed. Something to think about.

In a new video on NRA News, in response to the shooting at the "Pulse" nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and the newly re-proposed* "gun control" laws:
Let's run through some of the latest attacks and see how banning so-called "assault weapons" would have turned out. California already bans "assault weapons". That didn't stop San Bernardino. No ban on ARs, or any guns, would have stopped the Boston Marathon bombing. ISIS's well-coordinated attack in France wasn't deterred by the country's strict "gun control" laws. Brussels' gun ban did nothing to stop terrorists from killing.I only have one nit-pick: The gun does not stop terror attacks, any more than it causes terror attacks. What stops terror attacks is prepared people — police or private citizens — showing up with the skills and/or tools required to make the bad guy(s) stop, using deadly force if necessary (which with terrorists, it often is).
But every single one of those tragedies ended with police officers carrying AR-15s rushing to the scene as fast as possible.
Hillary's solution to stopping terror attacks is to ban the very gun that >stops terror attacks, and she calls that "common sense".**
Watch the whole thing:
