NRA at meeting with VP Biden

The NRA met today at the White House with VP Joe Biden. Read this statement from the NRA about that meeting.

Elsewhere I read that the NRA membership has increased 100,000 since December 14. If you aren't a member of the NRA, I urge you to join now. This organization should have 40,-50,000,000 members, not just 4,000,000. The law-abiding gun owners in the U.S.A. are not the problem! Go to and join today.

"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.

"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."

You should have expected no less from Obama's puppet.
