Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of NRA, writing in America’s 1st Freedom, tells readers that documents obtained from the U.S Department of Homeland Security show that as of April 2014 the Obama administration had released this group, including many convicted of violent crimes such as homicide, sexual assault and kidnapping.
The Constitution’s Second Amendment is our defense against this type of criminal, and the Second Amendment is at risk given just a single vote change at the Supreme Court.
Mr. LaPierre explains:
For nearly seven years now, Obama has undermined the country’s very foundation, its culture and the values that have made America the greatest nation in the world.
An especially egregious example of his trampling on the Constitution to take away the rights of law-abiding gun owners is Obama’s implementation of the United Nations’ gun-ban treaty without obtaining mandated Senate ratification-constitutionally directed approval that he knows he cannot obtain.
Add to the list “Operation Chokepoint,” a scheme to drive federally licensed gun dealers out of business through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp (FDIC) by coercing banks into shutting down financial services for those targeted business. Under the government thumb, local banks notified gun dealers: “Ultimately your company’s line of business is not commensurate with the industries we work with.”
This malfeasance must come to an end. But if Hillary Clinton gets into office [RCY: See more about Hillary here], she will pick up where Obama left off, and the damage she would inflict on our country would be catastrophic.
One thing all Second Amendment supporters can do is to join the NRA today. I am a life member. A second is to join with your whole family in taking the NRA’s excellent handgun safety course, as Debbie and I have done. And you can benefit in taking a look at the mini series I have recently posted The Armed American Family (Part I, II, III, IV, V).
Here you will see a truly disturbing video on the danger of the Supreme Court to America’s Second Amendment rights.
