Bad news aplenty for leftist gun-haters…

January 17, 2013

It’s a bad day for the leftists of the world at war with the Constitution.

They say they are at war with the NRA, but the NRA is nothing more than regular Americans seeking to protect and defend civil rights!

The gun control fanatics are losing in the political realm, ,and in the cultural realm as well!

 

On the political front

Some of the many 20 Democrat U.S. senators from states where guns are quite popular are feeling the heat and very skittish about supporting President Barack Obama’s war on gun rights.

Keep in mind as you’re reading it that if they aren’t enthusiastically supporting it, they are a “no” vote for gun control.

Vulnerable Senate Democrats balk at Obama’s gun control measures

(The Hill) – Some vulnerable Senate Democrats are balking at President Obama’s new push on gun control, reflecting the tough position many will be in if Congress takes up major firearms legislation.

Shortly after Obama unveiled the details of his policy, a number of Democrats from conservative, heavily rural states who are up for reelection in 2014 indicated they’re likely to oppose the measures.

The responses indicate how tough it will be for any legislation to move through Congress — and how tricky an issue it is for some rural-state Democrats facing reelection.

Here’s a rundown of what some of those Democrats had to say about the proposals:

Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that he’s not eager to pass new gun control legislation.

Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) told a local television station that he opposed the proposals.

Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) indicated he was hesitant about supporting new legislation.

Sen. Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) said on Tuesday, before the proposals came out, that he didn’t want to see a “one-size-fits-all” approach.

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) was cautious regarding whether or not she supported the proposals, though she said she would look at the proposals with “an open mind.”

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) similarly didn’t take a concrete stance on Obama’s proposals, though she sounded slightly more open to new legislation.

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who hails from a left-leaning but heavily rural state, said during a meeting in Minnesota that he supported some of the measures but didn’t immediately weigh in on Obama’s calls for an assault weapons ban. Franken staffers later pointed out that he’s long supported renewing the assault weapons ban.

 

 

Losing the cultural war

From a cultural point of view, the gun haters are losing too.  Yesterday, we discussed how they are losing the young people – a great majority say they plan to become gun owners after college.  Today, there’s a high-profile story of how liberals are embracing the fun and excitement of gun ownership.

How Gun Culture Won Over Liberals

(BuzzFeed.com) – On a Sunday morning a couple years ago, Brooklyn journalist Foster Kamer and a few of his “particularly liberal” blogger friends decided to skip brunch and hit the shooting range instead.

“We said, hey, let’s do something ridiculous,” he recalled. “Let’s go shoot guns.”

They chose the nearest site they found, a range that operated out of a basement in midtown Manhattan. “The first thing that happened when we got there was we heard some guy hammering away at a target with what sounded like a cannon. It was just in such tight quarters. It kind of freaked us out.”

It didn’t keep them away, though.

One 30-minute gun safety lesson and a few bucks later, Kamer and his friends were blasting away at their own targets — the first of many. “Sometimes we go bowling, sometimes we eat together, and sometimes we go shooting,” he said. “It’s something to do.”

Meanwhile, gun owners continue to buy up everything in sight.

  1. Just remember when you go and vote in the mid term election, that it isn’t who you vote for. But who counts the votes that determines who is in office.

    This is all just whistling past the graveyard.
    “Tighter background checks? This will be a lip-licking opportunity for anti-civil libertarians to add category after category of prohibited persons.
    Sending mental health data to NICS to prohibit firearms purchases?
    Already, any veteran foolish enough to openly seek help for depression or PTSD will find him or herself prohibited from buying firearms.
    Look how long it took to start undoing the damage of the 1968 legislation that gave us the unchallenged “sporting purposes” test of firearms legitimacy. Heller is the first. How long will it take to undo whatever we acquiesce to this time?

    I am not a “gun ownner.” I am an American with civil liberties listed in the Bill of Rights that the US Government is prohibited from infringing. “Gun owners” are cowards who beat their chests and mouth bombastic phrases in the safety of the clubs and gun shows, but who don’t show up at the polls or even join the only organizations that politically defend them. 200,000,000 guns in the US, at least 60,000,000 “gun owners,” and the NRA struggles to keep its numbers over 4,000,000.
    Cowards.

    I’m not a member of the NRA because they compromise on gun-control. I am however a member of GOA and they don’t send me never ending junk-mail like the NRA does.

    The only good gun law is a repealed gun law.

    Thanks to Wilson for the Income tax, the league of nations, Backing of the reds in the russian revolution, (all Russian citizens were armed), The Federal reserve, Thank FDR for the Social Security, something else that is not constitutional, The new deal, which was as dismal a second term as Obama’s first term, and his avoidance of helping with the evil that prevailed in the world since the Japaneese invasion of Manchuria in 1931. One of our gunboats was sunk in china on a river and the govt did nothing in retaliation, like the Cole, Clinton did n othing in retaliation…We are in a vacuum, fat, stupid, and uninformed voters, with the welfare and entitlement shoot, are running the country. All the few members of the house and senate that seem to be right on, are just talking, Nobody can do anything about this Marxist Bustard in the white house because he is BLACK. Its the race card first, EH?

    The first joint session of congress was held at St Paul’s Church in New York, all Christian men, with a mission, and a bill of rights, and a constitution. the year was about 1789, after the war with king Geroge…Never forget, King George came here to DISARM the colonists,Pray, fast, bless, and work, and do not buy anything made in fruiting china, buy american, if it hurts, do it. Do not pay any taxes if possible, and prepare for a horrible civil war that will, it the Obummers win, will take 100 million american live, What the hell do you think the DHS is all about. ?
