The NRA-ILA is doing nothing more than warning of the fact that when these anti-American gun grabbers say that no one is coming for your guns, the very opposite is true.
The reason for the Second Amendment was put into place was to ensure the right of the people to keep and bear arms was not infringed so that they might participate in a well-regulated militia and avoid having a standing army. Of course, this was a duty of all able-bodied men but was based on the God-given right that men were given by their Creator to defend against criminals, namely tyrants.
The National Rifle Association agrees and its Institute for Legislative Action arm has come out and not only reiterated this notion, but has said that those who are telling Americans that no one is coming for their guns are lying to them.
The NRA-ILA wrote, “Why do we even have a Second Amendment? Because British tyrants came for the Founders’ guns, and the Founders knew, given the chance, overreaching officials in the U.S. would do the same thing. Now, some believe that chance has finally come.”
“In the wake of the terrible crimes in Parkland, Florida, gun control activists and progressive social justice warriors have found their scapegoats in the National Rifle Association and its five million members. And as they always do when they feel emboldened, they are revealing the true agenda they usually try to downplay to the American public in less emotionally-charged times.”
As I’ve stated before, these people attack our rights while whining when their own rights are infringed.
However, the NRA-ILA doesn’t just make a claim and not back it up. Among some of the statements by anti-Second Amendment activists last weekend in DC at March for Our Lives, here are a few the NRA-ILA noted.
“When they give us that inch … we will take a mile!”
“I have a dream that enough is enough. And that this should be a gun-free world. Period!”
“Welcome to the revolution … The people demand a law banning the sale of assault weapons. The people demand we prohibit the sale of high capacity magazines.”
While these statements were uttered, there is something that should be pointed out in the first statement that was listed. Those little ellipses were put in there for a specific reason. The quote was actually from Parkland student Delany Tarr who uttered:
“When they give us that inch, that bump stock ban, we will take a mile.”
