NRA Issues Response to President Obama’s Gun Control Proposals

NRA Statement:

Throughout its history, the National Rifle Association has led efforts to promote safety and responsible gun ownership.  Keeping our children and society safe remains our top priority.

The NRA will continue to focus on keeping our children safe and securing our schools, fixing our broken mental health system, and prosecuting violent criminals to the fullest extent of the law.  We look forward to working with Congress on a bi-partisan basis to find real solutions to protecting America’s most valuable asset – our children.

Attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation.  Only honest, law-abiding gun owners will be affected and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy.

    Now you tell me what Law Abiding Citizen takes a Gun to a School or Mall or any where else and Kill's Innocent People..So How will it affect Law abiding Citizen's. No One but the Military has any business owning any sort of Assault Weapon..If you can't figure out how to use a legal handgun or rifle then you have no business with a gun period. How many shots does it take to kill or harm a intruder ONE!!!!!

    • anon.

      You really have no idea what you are talking about do you? One shot kills if your lucky. We as Americans are backed by the second amendment. We have the right to bare arms. Not just the military, and if believe that only the military should have the business owning a assault rifle, then Obama's security shouldn't be allowed to carry a rifle either. His family's protection is no more important than mine.

      Assault weapon are a essential part of our countries freedoms. it gives us the freedom to overthrow the government and the military at any given time. Hopefully we will never see the day that we need as a country do this. However I for one do not wish to go against the government with a pea shooter while they have all the weapons. Where do you let it end in a year or two it will be rifles then shotguns then pistols soon we will have no defense

      Guess how Adolph Hitler was able to round up over six and a half million Jews and gas them to death and then incinerate their corpses Jennifer? Give up?!! He made sure to remove their right to own a gun and confiscated all their firearms. The rest was just dealing with the logistics. Only the military had assault weapons. If you've never heard the saying that "history has a way of repeating itself" then let me be the first to enlighten you because it does. Now if you do not value ALL of your many freedoms then by all means give up your second amendment rights and the rest will follow. Please remember that it was the private citizens of this country who owned guns who won us our freedoms in the first place. It is still the private citizens who own guns that maintain those same freedoms. Our right to keep and bear arms keeps our elected government from becoming too powerful and dictatorial. You may not appreciate that now but if Obama gets his way with a ban on guns then it is just quite possible you'll live to regret it but I hope for your sake and mine that you won't.

    Not true Jennifer. Your hateful comment right there is a sign that you're too full of hate, ignorance and are too uneducated to comment on this topic.

    What happened when police were shooting Rudy Eugene as he was eating the face of a homeless man in Miami last year? They had to shoot him numerous times. One shot doesn't always knock down a man or woman who has adrenaline rushing through their veins.

    • Jennifer Topper

      If you would educate yourself enough to understand my post you would understand the meaning. I am not against anyone owning a GUN..but there is no reason for Anyone to Own a Assault Weapon unless you are Military..and further more what does the man in Miami have to do with my comment..Sometimes it may take More than one shot but I didn't even see the police using Assault style weapons to take that Lunatic down…Get a Clue Darling

        Jen if you look at the washington post they had a story about that and showed a weapon that same gun one was banned and the other not. the differents was a hand grip.

      • zaskar

        You need to educate yourself on guns. Do you watch the news police have assault rifles. In Alaska assault rifles are popular to hunt wolfs and bears. I would love to see you face a brown bear with a pae shooter haha no more comments from you

    I don't understand how background checks effect law abiding citizens. I know plenty of people who legally have guns and several who have concealed carry permits. The NRA is overreacting once again. Nowhere did Obama or Biden say they were taking guns away from those who are qualified to have them.

  • Doris Strausbaugh

    I believe it should be my choice as to what type of gun I wish to legally purchase and the government has no right to put limits on the level of defense I choose.
