LaPierre: Hillary ‘Dreams of Twisting a Knife into the Heart of the 2A’

Send to Kindle

(Editor’s note: The following is an urgent message from National Rifle Association Exec. Vice President Wayne LaPierre.)

I’ve spent my entire adult life fighting for the Second Amendment, and I’ve got the scars to prove it. The media and many in the political class have reserved some of their most vicious, nasty insults for me, because they truly hate the freedom I stand for, and they hate that I tell the truth. They’ve called me crazy, paranoid, evil and far worse.

But the media is so focused on me, they forgot about you: The tens of millions of gun owners all over America. The men and women who come up to me at gun shows in places like Tulsa and Harrisburg. The mechanics and taxi drivers and Waffle House waitresses who tell me to never, ever back down. You give me the strength to speak the plain, honest truth in the face of all the hate.

When I said Barack Obama would come for our guns and do everything in his power to sabotage the Second Amendment, they savaged me. They called me a liar. But every one of those predictions came true.

As soon as it was politically convenient, he exploited a horrible tragedy to launch a blizzard of gun bans, magazine restrictions and gun registration schemes against law-abiding gun owners across the country.

I stood in front of the country and said the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. I said our children deserve at least the same level of protection that surrounds our jewelry stores, banks, office buildings, celebrities and the political and media elites.

They attacked me like never before. But you stood your ground. And you told me to stand mine.

While radical Islamic terrorists shot, bombed and butchered innocent Americans on our own soil, Barack Obama attacked you harder than he attacked ISIS. He used the terrorism his own weakness and failures made possible to try to gut your right to shoot back at the terrorists he refused to kill.

Thank God we stopped him in his tracks. But while his term ends in a matter of months, his two Supreme Court appointees—easily among the worst justices to ever sit on that bench —will come after our guns for the rest of their lives.

Eight years of his policies have laid waste to the America we remember. Through a deliberate lack of prosecution, he has transformed America into a sanctuary nation for felons, criminal gang-bangers, drug dealers, repeat offenders and illegal aliens.

Our inner cities now rank among the most dangerous places in the world. Teenage girls are trafficked in a sex trade that begins south of our porous border and ends up under the noses of the elites in cities like Washington, D.C.

His foreign policy enabled and inspired ISIS, handed nuclear bombs to Iranian mullahs who dream of killing us all, emboldened Russia, China and North Korea, and left Europe on the brink of absolute implosion. Even the weakest leaders of third-rate countries feel free to publically mock and disrespect our president, while the world’s most cunning, power-hungry negotiators played him for a fool.

Our economy is on life support. Healthcare is an utter failure. Our schools have never been worse. You can see the despair in every parent’s eyes.

Eight years. That’s all it took for our country to completely unravel. I told you exactly what he would do. The media said I was nuts. But in the end, America knows I was right.

So feel free to mark my words. If, God forbid, Hillary Clinton is elected, she will launch an all-out war on the Second Amendment. She will come for your guns. She will attack your right to carry. She will attack your most basic right to defend your family with a firearm in your home. And she will continue the disastrous policies of this administration to their inevitable conclusion: the creation of a new, post-freedom America that you won’t even recognize.

There is no red line President Hillary Clinton will not cross when it comes to attacking your rights and forcibly taking your guns. She dreams of twisting a knife into the heart of the one freedom that separates us from the rest of the world.

The only thing that can stop her is you. The NRA’s five million members are history’s most committed, most elite defenders of freedom.

You are the special forces that swing elections. And I need you now more than ever. Fight with me. Stand by my side like you have for all these years.

If you cherish the freedom that was won for you at Lexington and Concord and on the shores of Normandy … if you believe that this freedom makes America better and stronger than every other country … if you refuse to witness the self-destruction of the greatest nation the world has ever known … then join me.

Arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder, we will fight for each other—for our children, and for future generations, and for our shared dream that America can and will be great again.

On November 8, you are freedom’s safest place.

    “not major assault weapons”

    This is from one of the “sensible people” who supposedly carries a “handgun” but hopefully never in a “no fly zone or worse.”

    Perhaps we must take the lead from Jesus, dumb it down, and speak in parables. Copy and paste to an e-mail the following parable, and send it to a liberal friend, relative, or someone who may be on the fence.

    The Sheep, and the She-Wolf with the Disarming Laugh (A Modern Day Parable), by Tom Horn

    Once upon a time, there was a great land of sheep and sheep dogs. They had broken away from a land ruled by wolves, so in their new, ‘great land,’ they vowed that sheep would always have sheep dogs to protect them against being ruled and preyed on by wolves. The sheep and sheep dogs worked hard for many generations and created a wonderful land with plentiful clover, and abundant dog biscuits. They were all happy and prosperous.

    The rest of the world took note of the great land of sheep and sheep dogs. Soon, sheep from other lands were sneaking into great land in the night, to have what those of great land had. Others in the world were jealous, and hated great land. They sent wolves in sheep’s clothing across the borders into great land to harm the sheep.

    One day there came to the sheep of great land a she-wolf in sheep’s clothing. This she-wolf had a very disarming laugh, and when she laughed the sheep would laugh along with her, and they felt good. The she-wolf started telling the sheep that all they needed to do was rid themselves of their sheep dog brothers, and then she would lead them to a land of continuous sunshine, clover as big as dinner plates, a land where wolves did not exist. All they needed to do is get rid of their protective sheep dogs.

    The she-wolf told the sheep and wolves in sheep’s clothing, who had snuck in from other lands, that if they help her rid themselves of sheep dogs, they could bring all their relatives to her new promise land, and they would all live happily ever after. The she-wolf laughed her disarming laugh, and all the sheep came under her spell.

    The sheep dogs caught wind of the she-wolf’s plan and warned the sheep that she was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, with a disarming, spell casting laugh, but the sheep had already come under her spell. It was too, late.

    One night, when the sheep dogs had dozed off for a moment, the wolves in sheep’s clothing and the sheep rolled giant bales of hay in front the sheep dogs’ dog house doors, trapping them inside. The she-wolf said the sheep would now have their promise land.

    It was soon apparent the laughing she-wolf had lied. She separated, and put the sheep in pens. The wolves in sheep’s clothing soon removed their cloaks and ruled over the sheep. The she-wolf even put wolves on the supreme couch, where sheep dogs used to oversee matters, and make sure everything was fair, equal, and just. Things were far from fair, equal, and just, now. Soon, the sheep had little clover, after all the relatives of the sheep who had snuck illegally into great land came pouring across the border. Even more wolves were welcomed across the border into great land. Some nights sheep would just disappear in the middle of the night. There were no more sheep dogs to protect them.

    In the meantime the sheep dogs dug furiously at the hay to free themselves from the she-wolf’s trap. When they finally freed themselves from the hay, they found themselves surrounded by snarling, snapping wolves. They fought hard against the wolves, and many a sheep dog perished in the fight, but after many battles with the wolves, the sheep dogs eventually banished the wolves, once again, from great land.

    Now, great land was just, so-so land. It would take many years before the sheep and sheep dogs would be able to make great land, great, again. They once again vowed to never be ruled by wolves (even a she-wolf, with a disarming laugh).

    Excellent summary V.P. LaPierre.

    What sickens me the most is, America is under increased threat of terrorist attacks to her citizens, and these liberal scumbags are trying to disarm/emasculat the American People. I get the feeling they cannot wait for another Sandy Hook. They have done nothing like the real common sense measures Mr. Lapierre had proposed. Why can’t the people see what is as plain as their nose?

    • Tom Horn October 22, 2016, 9:32 pm

      The fact that the Obama administration has armed civilian US Govt Agencies (IRS, Health & Human Services, The Weather Bureau, etc.) is proof that the Government recognizes the need for civilians to arm themselves for defense/protection. But ask yourself why they don\’t want you prepared for whatever they are preparing for.\”…the arming of federal government employees now shows the number of non-Defense Department federal officers carrying firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000)…\” – The Daily Wire, June, 17, 2016http://www.dailywire.com/news/6713/pretty-much-every-government-agency-has-guns-hank-berrien#

        I don’t get why those in the NRA cant separate sensibility from drama. Hillary has never said that she wants to take guns away from citizens. You give as example of those carrying guns as federal workers. I don’t think the federal employees are nut cases, felon’s, terrorists, on a no fly zone or worse. They also are carrying handguns, which I my self do, not major assault weapons. All that sensible people want to do is keep weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of those wanting to create harm to as many people at one time as possible.
        The NRA TV ads that are run depicting Hillary as wanting to take your hand guns away are preposterous if not just out and out lies.
        Keep in mind when the constitution was written all you had as a weapon was a musket. They did not fire multiple rounds in a second.

        • Rob October 28, 2016, 11:22 am

          @michael, are you that dumb?! She has said she would look into doing what Australia has done with their guns. AR’s and multi-round clips arent the problem. Theres a mental health problem in this country and the Hillary supporters are just as mentally impaired.

          • Sb October 28, 2016, 11:57 am

            I’d love for you to cite where Hillary said she want to take your guns away from the people and abolish the 2nd amendment. I agree, citizens do not need assault weapons .

        • Darren P. October 28, 2016, 12:18 pm

          Well then, with that kind of logic, I guess the first amendment doesn’t protect TV,radio, or any electronic media because it to wasn’t around when those great papers were created. Morons like you really need to be educated before you decide to throw your hat in the ring.

        • Tom Horn October 28, 2016, 1:43 pm

          Michael,

          Please keep up with current events, sir. Many of these federal agencies were supplied with what you, and the liberal media call, “major assault weapons,” not just handguns. So, the U.S. Weather Bureau and the IRS just wants to “…keep weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of those wanting to create harm…?” I never remember Congress, or the American People authorizing them to do, so.

          So, you recognize our right to bear muskets, eh? Grow a clue.

          To Michael & sb,

          Does, District of Columbia Vs. Heller, mean anything to you guys? Hillary has openly stated she opposes the Heller decision. So, don’t worry, you can probably still carry your musket when you are on active duty with your militia (probably on a ‘May issue’ basis).

          I’m afraid it is true, and you two are proof, we get the kind of government we deserve.

        • JoeUSooner October 28, 2016, 3:16 pm

          Michael… Hillary most certainly HAS stated that she wants citizens disarmed!! She stated flatly that the Supreme Court was WRONG in its two recent decisions (Heller and McDonald) affirming the 2nd Amendment as an individual right. She flatly stated that she intends to pack the Supreme Court with liberals who will overturn those decisions.

          How the hell more straightforward can a human being BE? She adamantly intends to disarm common citizens. Your naive insistence that she does not mean it… is worthless as any kind of assurance that she (in any conceivable way) supports the 2nd Amendment.

          Since ownership of a fully-automatic firearm is denied (has been since 1986) to private citizens… NO “weapons of mass destruction” (as you incorrectly describe them) are legally available to anyone. All semi-automatic – legal – firearms (pistols and rifles) function in the exact same manner, no matter what they esthetically look like. And there already 23,000 gun-related laws on the books today… making American firearms THE most heavily-regulated industry in the entire world! The problem is not a lack of laws… it is the Obama Administration’s (and his DOJ’s) flat refusal to enforce those laws.

            In 1986, the Congress passed a law banning the sale of new fully automatic/select-fire firearms to the populous via a last minute amendment to a pro-hunter bill. One could still, however, buy such firearms so long as the firearm was registered with the ATF before a certain date, one filled out the required paperwork, and a $200 fee was paid. Thirty years later, this law has effectively made it impossible for an ordinary citizen to buy these firearms because speculators and “investors” have driven the prices sky high (e.g., $26,000+ for an M16, $45,000+ for a Thompson sub-machine gun, $7,000+ for a select-fire S&W M76, $70,000+ for a M60, $12,000+ for an Uzi, etc.). Even if someone owned such a firearm that had been purchased before the unconstitutional law passed, they don’t fire it or it will lose value. On the other hand, companies who provide bodyguards to the rich and famous and LEO’s can still purchase new firearms, even though they are just citizens like you and me, creating a two-tiered system of haves and have nots.

        • Mike October 28, 2016, 10:47 pm

          You’re buying into the lies and partial truths always told by Hillary. She lies and lies!
          You talk about muskets vs weaponry
          that has far more firepower. Well, I want to be able to have access to to
          same firepower that the bad guys may have ….. common sense!!!!
