NRA Warns Members That Confiscation Could Be Next

Source: Talking Points Memo

In an email sent to National Rifle Association members on Thursday, the head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) warned that politicians in Washington D.C. were “closing in fast on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”

“President Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians are on an all-out crusade to pass new laws that would: BAN tens of millions of rifles, shotguns and handguns…make it more difficult, expensive, and in some cases, ILLEGAL for you to purchase ammunition…and even FORCE you to register your firearms with the federal government,” NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox wrote in the email. “Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and ‘buyback’ program - where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!”

The NRA-ILA is the lobbying arm of the NRA. Cox’s email came a day after President Obama announced 23 executive actions he plans to take to reduce gun violence in response to the massacre in Newtown, Conn. last month. Neither confiscation nor buybacks were on Obama’s list, nor were they part of the sweeping legislative proposals the President made on the subject.

“(T)]he fact is, despite their statements, the main goal of the gun banners in Congress is not to make schools safer, but to ban your guns and abolish every last sacred right you have under the Second Amendment..until they reduce your freedom to ashes,” Cox wrote.

5. Now, wait just a darn minute here..

Charlton Heston told us he wouldn't allow the gubmint to confiscate his guns. Now we're supposed to believe that "they" can force us to hand them over? It's all so confusing, I tell ya.

14. Geez, I wish they would quit saying the government is going to confiscate

 

your firearms. If your firearms are confiscated it won't be by the government, it will be by those who own and control the government. The government has become a puppet to the puppet masters. We're still seeing the results of 2008-9 and the great purging of USA assets from Americans into the pockets of a few.



Progressive, populist, and libertarian for the rights of people.

16. To refute this

When a winger brings up “Some are even talking about a mandatory gun confiscation and ‘buyback’ program - where you would be forced to hand over your guns in exchange for a government check!” just ask who is "some"? Give me a NAME! Sounds like a Straw man argument to me.

17. And where would they know who had guns to confiscate

if they ever did do that? They'd probably start by obtaining the NRA membership list?

25. and we could also get hit by an asteroid next...

'similar probability...

but at least guns can be regulated. Confiscation is a great idea, but very unlikely.

I never thought that "gun-grabber" rhetoric was remotely serious until I saw it right here amidst the hysteria that passes for the present discussion.
