Statement From the National Rifle Association of America Regarding Today’s White House Task Force Meeting

Posted on January 10, 2013

Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association of America is made up of over 4 million moms and dads, daughters and sons, who are involved in the national conversation about how to prevent a tragedy like Newtown from ever happening again. We attended today’s White House meeting to discuss how to keep our children safe and were prepared to have a meaningful conversation about school safety, mental health issues, the marketing of violence to our kids and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.

We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners – honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen. Instead, we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works – and what does not.

2. NRA: "Failed solutions" = more guns

The NRA doesn't even practice what they preach. They did a sweep of the room before the NRA press conference. What? No guns allowed? Seems they'd want EVERYONE in the room to have a gun, the more guns in the hands of "good guys" the better, right?

So, what's the problem NRA? Hard to tell the difference between a good guy and a bad guy? Yeah, it's the same for everyone else. The solution should be the same as well: NO GUNS IN THE ROOM.

6. It is the NRA that is attacking the 2nd Amendment...

By their steadfast refusal to get assault weapons off the streets and out of the hands of people that are killing our children.

8. The NRA is 1% of America .4.3 out of 320 is one percent rounded down.

 

and they say the 4.3 is every member ever, including all those that died.

11. I'm surprised they didn't freak out over visiting the home of a Black family

I lived in the South long enough to know the NRA is just a bunch of racists.
