Clinton, liberals take after firearms

The U.N., "Clintonian democracy" and liberals want to disarm law-abiding citizens.

They believe only the military and law enforcement should have guns, and federal cops should control local law enforcement. Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, India, Communist China, North Korea, Britain, Australia and Canada have confiscated citizens' firearms.

Why is Clinton painting the National Rifle Association, which has conducted safety courses for decades, as anti-children? The NRA is taking a "stand tall or lose it all" position to protect the Second Amendment. It is lobbying candidates in this election year as never before. More than 3 million members are concerned as never before. Alert Americans do not accept Clinton's lies and media gun control propaganda. We realize that more gun laws and controls on gun manufacturers will lead to individual licensing, gun registration and total confiscation when the political climate is right.

Gun control will be a major election issue this year. Any candidate who does not support the Second Amendment risks losing. Millions of gun owners are a dedicated voting bloc that will vote only for Second Amendment candidates and will be a factor when less than 25 percent of voting age Americans vote.

In 1999 Atlanta's Democrat mayor ignored the Georgia Legislature's ban against city lawsuits against gun manufacturers. Like 20 other liberal Democrat mayors he sued 17 gun manufacturers. Several state legislatures have stopped these suits promoted by greedy lawyers. These lawsuits could put U.S. gun manufacturers out of business. Firearms manufacturing then will take place only in foreign countries.

Advocates of the Second Amendment individual right to keep and bear arms should read "More Guns, Less Crime," by Chicago law professor John Lott, available from the Conservative Book Club at P.O. Box 97196, Washington, D.C. 20078-7197.

Britain tested the maxim that a man's home is his castle first by regtistering guns and then confiscating them. A farmer drew a life sentence in prison for killing a burglar in his home. Neighbors, newspapers and some politicians rallied to defend him.. Hundreds of thousands of Americans protect their lives, families and property every year with a gun, rarely reported in the liberal media that never miss an opportunity to report every incident of when the "bad guys shoot the good guys."

The Armed Informed Mothers March will take place May 14 at the Washington Monument. The goal is to provide a strong pro-Second Amendment presence at a crucial moment in history, letting everyone know that our Second Amendment rights are non-negotiable.
