USA – -(Ammoland.com)- So, here are three quotes. Care to guess where they come from?
The top two come from the new Senate Minority Leader (Chuck Schumer) the last one the minority leader in the House (Nancy Pelosi).
Had the election gone the other way they would be Majority leader and House speaker with Hillary Clinton as President. (And some of you people think the NRA overreacts when they said this election mattered!)
The Democrat Party is NOT listening to the people; they are ignoring the Pew Study that showed 77 percent of the people who voted in the last election support the NRA.
They’re back to their New York /San Francisco echo chamber where they ignore the rest of the country. Even POLITICO says that Schumer is a tool for the anti-gun movement.
With gun ownership exceeding 100,000,000 people and the fasted growing groups of new gun owners being women and minorities. You would think the Democrat Party would drop by 5 yards and punt on this issue.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
What the Democrats’ Get WRONG!
Unlike the NAACP, GLAD, Planned Parenthood or LA RAZA the NRA is not a partisan political organization. It supports all politicians who support the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution, Democrats, Independents and even Republicans.
Those top four partisan political groups supply support almost exclusively to Democrat candidates. (Opensecrets.org)
As the Democrats’ moved to the left, they left the NRA behind. McGovern, Humphry, Kennedy all had the backing of the NRA. Until the likes of Schumer and Pelosi got into politics guns were a non-issue.
Anything the left can turn into a wedge between people and issues, they will use. How many of you even knew Nixon wanted to ban handguns?
The fact is most anti gun liberals don’t get this.
Gun owners don’t care what Chuck Schumer has registered as; we do care that he wants to ban and confiscate guns. We care that in the past 30+ years he has never wavered from his anti-gun position.
The anti-gun left sees the NRA not as a group of patriots who care about their rights but as a GOP version of GLAD.
A group that will sell out their core beliefs to support the Democrats. Nothing could be further from the truth when you discuss the NRA.
So, gun owners, friends, fellow shooters. Here they come again.
After a two-year campaign with Hillary Clinton calling for gun buybacks and confiscation the same old tired lies are back with Pelosi and Schumer at the helm.
This time we’re ready!
Consider 120 million people voted; that’s 77 percent from PEW represents 92 million voters who support the NRA.
Compare that to the count of 100,000,000 gun owners, and we got a hell of a turnout.
The networks built on Facebook and other systems must be kept alive and strengthened. Take an anti-gunner or new person shooting. Bring them over to our side.
Outreach to groups like the LBGT community. There is a growing pro-gun segment there, nourish it.
Renew your NRA membership or upgrade to life members. Lastly, read Ammoland and keep informed.
