GOA’s State of the Union

–How Gun Owners Frustrated Obama’s Gun Control Agenda in 2014

“The group’s Executive Director Larry Pratt saw the West Virginia Democrat working behind the scenes, pushing gun control after Sandy Hook. He called him out and asked other gun rights groups, including the NRA, to do the same.” — Freedom Outpost, January 19, 2015

Two former Presidents paid quite a compliment to Gun Owners of America and its members last year.  For starters, President Obama said:

People ask me what I’m proudest of and what are my biggest frustrations as President. My biggest frustration is that this society hasn’t been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do damage. (The White House, June 10, 2014)

So in other words, he’s frustrated that Congress rejected every single one of his gun control proposals over the past couple of years.

GOA members should accept this compliment and pat themselves on the back.

FK – Some important battles won, but we’re a long, long way from the end of the war.

‘Gun control does not equal gun safety,’ says NSSF head

FK – How pathetic. Even if one of the ‘protestors’ had committed a crime that’s no reason take away the Liberty of over 300 million others. Even if some of them did some ‘stupid’ things that’s no reason to condemn all who were carrying. They need better leadership, something our movement is lacking, especially when so few see the necessity of making our elected public servants fear us and of preparing for what will be required.

Why Gun Owners Are Right to Fight Against Gun Control

“We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily — given the political realities — going to be very modest. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal — total control of handguns in the United States — is going to take time. My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition — except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors — totally illegal.” – Pete Shields, chairman of what is today the Brady Campaign, inThe New Yorker in 1976

FK – Those who don’t prepare for what will be required fully deserve the ditch they will be shot into… So many of us have been warning, for so long.
