GOA Slams Bloomberg and Justice Stevens for their Idiotic Ideas on the 2nd Amendment
“The founders did not establish a right to bear arms,” GOA’s Erich Pratt was quoted as saying to Newsmax. “They assumed it already existed [and] said that it ‘shall not be infringed.’ [But] gun-control advocates frequently want to skip over those words.”
Gun Owners of America joined a chorus of pro-gun organizations in slamming idiotic comments made recently by former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.
In a newly released book, Justice Stevens said the Second Amendment should be altered to say that people only have the right to bear arms “when serving in the militia.”
GOA blasted the comments, adding that gun owners would welcome the opportunity to demolish Stevens’ arguments in the court of public opinion.
“Bring on the debate,” said GOA Communications Director Erich Pratt in an interview with Newsmax over the weekend. Gun control advocates are always “pushing for draconian gun restrictions” while hiding behind words like “gun safety.”
But to a gun banner, those words are code for, “We just want the military and the police to have guns,” Pratt said. “So let’s get them out of the closet.”
Gun owners need not worry about Stevens’ idea gaining traction. Even an anti-gun liberal, like Professor Alan Dershowitz, opposes Stevens’ proposal.
“You don’t amend the Magna Carta,” Dershowitz said. “You don’t amend the Bill of Rights. There are certain things that you just leave pristine.”
GOA agrees. And increasingly, so do the American people.
Polls show more Americans opposing gun control
Remember all the phony polls which were used by Obama last year in order to push gun control?
Remember the unrelenting unilateral media pressure to ban guns — pressure reflected in even the “conservative” media?
Well, who’s laughing now?
Tuesday, the liberal USA Today was forced to concede that even liberal pollsters have found a massive, cataclysmic shift by Americans in favor of the right to keep and bear arms.
We bet that USA Today trolled all of the polls for some evidence that Americans embraced gun control to the same extent as their editorial board. What they found was a liberal Pew poll — conducted immediately after last year’s Newtown vote in April — that found that Americans were statistically evenly divided between pro-gunners and anti-gunners. Okay, it’s a liberal poll.
But what was even more interesting is that, in 2000, the same poll, asking the same questions, had found Americans supporting gun control by a margin of 66% to 29% — a 37% gap in favor of gun control.
And Pew is not alone.

What ABC just called Chelsea Clinton’s child would make the Framers turn in their graves
ABC’S Good Morning America called Chelsea Clinton’s child America’s “Royal baby.” Did we fight the revolution for nothing? The Framers are spinning in their graves.
Bianna Golodryga: “Move over, Prince George, though. This morning, Americans have their own royal, or, rather, presidential baby, to look forward to.”
Can you imagine the media saying this about, say, former President George W. Bush’s grandchild? Of course not. The lamestream media remains in the Left’s pocket.
The FBI and Pentagon plan to hire 6,000 cybersecurity professionals by 2016, but they’re having a really rough time recruiting people to work for them. There could be many reasons why – low pay, not enough American-born resources – but it all might really come down to one thing: that the US treats hackers as the worst possible criminals. So why would a hacker want to work for them? The Resident discusses.

Muslim drivers at Cleveland airport refuse to drive cabs with Gay Games advertising
Yet gay advocates in the U.S. such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman attacked Pamela Geller and me for calling attention to the institutionalized mistreatment of gays under Islamic law. Their gay advocacy doesn’t extend to standing up to Sharia oppression of gays, even though that oppression is far more virulent and violent than anything from “right-wing extremists” in the U.S. And you can’t blame them: given the Leftist/jihadist alliance, it’s clear that if they spoke out against Sharia mistreatment of gays, they would no longer be invited to the best parties, and might even be branded as “right-wing.” Their moral cowardice and duplicity, however, are obvious.
Remember this for any time in the future….
