Liberal Agenda: Divide and Conquer the NRA
Kevin Felts 10.03.17
Looking through the news on the Las Vegas Shooting, there seems to be a growing trend: to divide gun owners on the National Rifle Association. While the NRA has always been a target, that propaganda has kicked up a notch since the Las Vegas attack.
Whether gun owners approve or disapprove of the NRA is not the issue.
The history of the NRA on gun control is not the issue.
The real issue is that, united behind a single front, gun owners will not be defeated. Gun grabbers know this and that their only chance is to divide gun owners.
How are gun-grabbers going to divide gun owners? By making us question the NRA. Gun grabbers say it is time for “common sense gun control,” which sounds reasonable, right?
- Automatic weapons are heavily regulated.
- Background checks.
- Felons cannot own a firearm.
- Felons cannot be in possession of a firearm.
- People convicted of family violence cannot own a firearm.
So, what more do the gun grabber want?
Jimmy Kimmel, while talking about the Las Vegas shooting, says automatic and semi-automatic weapons are not something people use for self-defense, which we all know is incorrect. Semi-automatic rifles are used on a regular basis to protect property. Anyone remember pictures of the LA riots where store owners were using Mini-14s to protect their property?
Referring to semi-automatic weapons, Jimmy goes on to ask, “Why do our leaders allow this to happen?” What exactly is the government supposed to do, ban the AR-15? That simply cannot happen, and not for the reasons people may think. We will discuss why the AR-15 cannot be banned in another article.
At 4:35 of the video, Jimmy mentions President Trump signed a bill making it easier for people with mental illness to buy firearms. I presume Jimmy is referring to Social Security denying people with mental illnesses from buying firearms. The issue was not mentally-ill people buying firearms. The real issue was denying people due process of law. Of course gun-grabbers are not going to talk about civil rights when it comes to guns.
Another example from Market Watch: After Las Vegas, time for normal gun owners to decide where their loyalties lie: with the NRA, or with the USA.
If you’re a normal NRA member and you’ve been listening to their propaganda, I have some shocking news for you: You’re being lied to. Lied to, lied to and lied to again.
Hardly anyone wants to take away your family shotgun. Almost no one cares about it. If you turned up in a liberal enclave and offered to “hand in” your family shotgun, people would look at you like you were a nut and tell you to go home.
And almost no one wants to take away your hunting rifle, either. Most don’t care about it at all.
If gun owners are being lied to, explain the ludicrous California gun laws.
Please explain why Washington D.C. placed so many restrictions on firearms that the district was brought to the U.S. Supreme Court?
A large portion of comments made by gun-grabbers are simply incorrect. But that does not stop people from gobbling up their drivel like children eating candy on Halloween.
The speech by Kimmel is typical anti-gun propaganda. The underlying topic of his speech: Give up civil rights for a hint of safety.
Anti-gun people say things like, “The NRA does this, the NRA does that… and the result makes our society more prone to gun violence,” which is not true.
Notice how the gun-grabbers ignore cities like Chicago, where 765 people were murdered in 2016.
Whether someone agrees or disagrees with the NRA is not the issue. The real issue is strength through unification. The only way gun owners are going to defeat the gun grabbers is by unification through the NRA and organizations like it.
