Beleaguered NRA Releases Statement of Support for Gun Confiscation Laws

The NRA has capitulated on gun control yet again.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has supported gun control on many occasions throughout its long history, and they are moving back in that direction if their public statement released today is any indicator.

Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump endorsed “red flag” gun control laws that would deny rights enshrined under the 2nd Amendment to anyone arbitrarily deemed a dangerous individual by the courts.

“We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that, if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said, in response to two mass shootings that took place over the weekend.

“That is why I have called for red-flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders,” he added.

The NRA’s statement in favor of Trump’s sentiments is a clear endorsement of red flag laws, an issue the organization has tap danced around in recent years.

“Nobody wants dangerous people to have access to firearms which is why the NRA supports risk protection orders that respects the due process of rights and ensures those found mentally ill receive the care they need,” said National Rifle Association’s Catherine Mortensen in January.

Other more consistent firearms freedom groups, such as the Gun Owners of America (GOA) and National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR), are firmly in opposition of the capitulation made by President Trump and the NRA on this issue.

“Let me be crystal clear. Forcing universal (background) checks and red-flag gun confiscation laws on Americans would have done nothing to stop either of these murderers. They went through the failed and unconstitutional National Instant Criminal Background Check system,” NAGR President Dudley Brown said.

“We will let our members and supporters know how their elected officials vote – just like we did back in 2013 when they tried to pass gun control during the Obama years,” Brown added.

“These proposals generally begin with the police or an ‘angry ex’ making a telephone call to a judge. And, based on that telephone call, the judge can issue an order stripping you of your Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights,” the GOA wrote in an action alert against red flag laws.

“This is perhaps the most dangerous gun control proposal to come out of Michael Bloomberg’s playbook,” the action alert said.

Because of the work of the NRA and their influence on President Trump, these types of heinously unconstitutional infringements may be the law of the land across the country before long.

POLL: Less than Half of Americans Want Tougher Gun Control Laws

D.C. gun grabbers should be careful because they might awaken a sleeping giant.

According to a new Gallup Poll, Americans are not as keen on passing gun control as the corporate media would have many believe. 

Gallup surveyed 1023 American adults on how satisfied they were with the current gun laws. The pollster found that 56% of Americans felt dissatisfied with the existing gun laws, while 42% approved of the current measures.

Of those unsatisfied with current gun policy, 41% desire stricter gun control policies, while 8% want fewer restrictions. Only 7% want the existing laws to stay in place. Public opinion towards passing gun control has witnessed a notable decline over the last two years. Back in 2018, for example, only 46% of Americans wanted to pass more gun control.

Unsurprisingly, Gallup uses a cryptic title, “Americans Remain Largely Dissatisfied With U.S. Gun Laws” to imply that more Americans want more gun control. The mainstream media and gun control activists will pick on this survey headline and exploit the survey in marketing gun control.

“Given that dissatisfaction with gun laws is primarily seen among Democrats, it follows that people who are dissatisfied prefer stricter rather than more lenient laws,” the authors of the report assert.

With regards to partisan support of current gun laws, 69% of Republicans expressed their satisfaction with existing law. By contrast, only 22% of Democrats held similar views. Democrats have become increasingly anti-gun over time. In 2012, 40% of Democrats were in favor of the current firearms policy framework. 

President Joe Biden, a long-time proponent of federal gun control measures, recently met up with civilian disarmament groups such as Moms Demand Action per a report by BLP.

Democrats will try to sneak gun control in, but with the right amount of pressure on Democrats in swing states, any effort by the Biden administration will likely implode.
