NRA President Defends Ad Attacking Obama, Vows ‘Battle’ Ahead

From FOX Nation:

In an interview with ABC News this evening, NRA President David Keene said the gun-rights lobby is aggressively preparing for “battle” with the White House and Congress over President Obama’s sweeping new proposals to curb gun violence.

Keene criticized Obama’s announcement today, surrounded by four children from around the country, for “using kids to advance an ideological agenda.” And he expressed cautious confidence that few of the legislative measures would ultimately pass.

“It’s going to be very tough for the president to accomplish some of these things, but that doesn’t mean he can’t do it if he really turns it on,” Keene told ABC.

“All bets are off when a president really wants to go to war with you,” he said. “We’re gonna be there and we’re gonna fight it.”

    5 Facts against “Gun Control”
    Nick Gillespie & Amanda Winkler | January 10, 2013 (reason.com)
    1. Violent crime – including violent crime using guns – has dropped massively over the past 20 years.
    The violent crime rate – which includes murder, rape, and beatings – is half of what it was in the early 1990s. And the violent crime rate involving the use of weapons has also declined at a similar pace.
    2. Mass shootings have not increased in recent years.
    Despite terrifying events like Sandy Hook or last summer’s theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, mass shootings are not becoming more frequent. “There is no pattern, there is no increase,” says criminologist James Allen Fox of Northeastern University, who studies the issue. Other data shows that mass killings peaked in 1929.
    3. Schools are getting safer.
    Across the board, schools are less dangerous than they used be.Over the past 20 years, the rate of theft per 1,000 students dropped from 101 to 18. For violent crime, the victimization rate per 1,000 students dropped from 53 to 14.
    4. There Are More Guns in Circulation Than Ever Before.
    Over the past 20 years, virtually every state in the country has liberalized gunownership rules and many states have expanded concealed carry laws that allow more people to carry weapons in more places. There around 300 million guns in the United States and at least one gun in about 45 percent of all households. Yet the rate of gun-related crime continues to drop.
    5. “Assault Weapons Bans” Are Generally Ineffective.
    While many people are calling for reinstating the federal ban on assault weapons – an arbitrary category of guns that has no clear definition – research shows it would have no effect on crime and violence. “Should it be renewed,” concludes a definitive study, “the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”
    The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is as horrifing a crime as can be imagined. It rips at the country’s heart and the call to action is strong and righteous. But as Joe Biden and his panel of experts consider changes to gun laws and school-safety policies, they need to lead with their heads and not just their hearts.
    Over the past dozen years, too many policies – the Patriot Act, the war in Iraq, the TARP bailouts – have been ruled by emotion and ideology.
    Passing sweeping new restrictions on Second Amendment rights won’t heal the pain and loss we all feel but just may create many more problems in our future.
    Commentary: 2nd amendment is the “linch-pin” Progressive New Left Activists see as the dismantling of USA’s Constitution. Coupled with this re-newed effort is LGBT’s incessant drive to “unlink” Our Creator from everything Judeo-Christian in Americas and Americans heritage. Their New Oxford Bible professes these precepts. Pray. Amen. Vigilance.

      Well said messup.
      Even a small obama victory for a seemingly unobtrusive law or edict is a major victory for the progressives. Just look at what happened in Australia recently. Many “small” infringements led to a complete and total ban.
      The boiling of a frog scenario is apropos. Start the frog out in cold water and gradually heat it up until the water boils.
      obama just put the frog into the pot.

    The 2nd American Revolution & how it will start is in this great novel. It’s a thriller about each of us taking a stand so I recommend it.

    Obama has all the power behind him with the federal govt. so it’s going to be a true ‘battle’ for each of us to defend ourselves against an awesome power, but it can be done.

    The following video will show you what dis-armed society will endure when they are disarmed. It is happening in England as we speak. This is what Barack Obama wants in the U.S.A.

    Muslims only areas in England. Do you want this in America. Keep your heads in the sand and it will happen:
