U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D) Connecticut said on CNBC Friday morning that modern sporting rifles like the AR-15, currently the most popular carbine in America, were designed to “kill and maim innocent human beings.”
Progressives lead by MSNBC and the national liberal main stream media are calling for an iron clad law to prevent the manufacture, sale or transfer of modern sporting rifles in the United States.Click here to watch video if you are using iPad or other device without Flash
An hour after Senator Blumenthal made the above appearance on CNBC, Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President and CEO of the National Rifle Association, spoke live from Washington, DC saying that “we protect” our banks, our airports, and our president, and yet when it comes to our “most beloved and innocent members of our society,” we leave them “utterly defenseless” and “the monsters of the world know and exploit that.” ...the monsters and the predators of the world” have exploited the fact that most schools are gun-free zones. Other important institutions—such as banks, courts and power plants—are protected with armed security,” he said.
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” Mr. LaPierre said in his statement to reporters Friday.
I agree. The hoplophobes who have an unhealthy fear of firearms and liberal fascists who want to pave the wave for tyranny by confiscating guns, disagree.
“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.” -Sigmund Freud
Gun control defined: The theory that people who are willing to ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder will obey a law which prohibits them from owning a firearm.

Liberal Fascists Respond to the NRA proposal:
Senator Barbara Boxer (D) California: “The head of the NRA blamed everyone in sight – except his own organization – for gun violence in America, and showed himself to be completely out of touch by ignoring the proliferation of weapons of war on our streets.”
NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg: “The NRA’s Washington leadership has long been out of step with its members, and never has that been so apparent as this morning. Their press conference was a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country. Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe. Leadership is about taking responsibility, especially in times of crisis. Today the NRA’s lobbyists blamed everyone but themselves for the crisis of gun violence. While they promote armed guards, they continue to oppose the most basic and common sense steps we can take to save lives - not only in schools, but in our movie theaters, malls, and streets. Enough. As a country, we must rise above special interest politics.”
Senator Frank Lautenberg (D) New Jersey: “It is beyond belief that following the Newtown tragedy, the National Rifle Association’s leaders want to fill our communities with guns and arm more Americans. The NRA points the finger of blame everywhere and anywhere it can, but they cannot escape the devastating effects of their reckless comments and irresponsible lobbying tactics. The NRA leadership is wildly out of touch with its own members, responsible gun owners, and the American public who want to close dangerous loopholes and enact common-sense gun safety reform. It is clear that their real priority is to help gun manufacturers sell more guns—not to protect our children or Americans’ rights. The extreme rhetoric of Wayne LaPierre and the NRA is disturbing and dangerous, and will only exacerbate America’s deadly culture of gun violence.”
If you remember only one thing that you have read on Bonzer Wolf Today™, remember this:
“When the people fear their government there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson
