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.Wayne La Pierre made a statement after Sandy Hook on the NRA site. It was a long statement about the shooting.
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.
What caught my eye and is in the middle of the statement was this sentence: (click on 12/21/12 Press conference after going to this link, to see this):
And here's another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal: There exists in this country a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells, and sows, violence against its own people.
I found that of great interest. Is he implying a false flag event to further an agenda?
I do firmly believe the way we will keep any Freedoms is by uniting together. I believe it will only be through a true united effort that we will keep our Freedom to Bear Arms. I personally joined the NRA and am asking everyone I know to do the same. To me there will be a force in numbers that could not be ignored.
Here is the information on the NRA and how much they spend in Washington D.C., this is from "Open Secrets" website: Here is what they say about the NRA:
The National Rifle Association goes to great lengths (and spends a huge sum of money) to defend the right to bear arms. It is opposed to virtually every form of gun control, including restrictions on owning assault weapons, background checks for gun owners, and registration of firearms.

The NRA is not just about guns, it is about our Freedoms!
If Obama does an Executive Order and bans guns in any way shape or form, I believe it will have an over powering negative affect upon this nation. This nation is more divided than ever. We can not have Obama take away any right of our Constitution especially doing it on his own as a dictator would do in another country. He has proven himself to go against all that he ever said he would do in the first place. He has clamped down on this nation and our freedoms as no other President before, yet he ran as a "Freedom" President in 2008. How anyone voted for that man this time around I will never understand, since he proved to have done nothing but lie the first time.
Oh remember what Biden said in 2008? "If Obama tries to come for my Beretta, then he's got a problem."
UPDATE 1/13/13 - NRA President on State of the Union "We will NOT Compromise" - Huffington Post Pundit lied and said over 70% of NRA members want bans and registrations.
