Small Protest Gathers in
Front of NRA´s DC Office

Breitbart Big Government, by Kerry Picket

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/18/2012 12:29:21 PM

Around 60 to 75 protesters appeared in front of the National Rifle Association´s headquarters in Washington D.C. on Monday afternoon. Chanting "shame on the NRA," the the small group, led by the organization CREDO, met several blocks away from the NRA´s Capitol Hill office and marched up to the doors of the NRA building. The protest, a reaction triggered by the deadly school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, started at noon and lasted until 1:30 PM. "The NRA takes tens of millions in corporate donations from gun makers and uses that money to lobby Congress and defeat anyone who opposes

Band of idiots.

IMO, the answer is more guns.

I think a better solution is trying to cut out all the violent movies, TV and video, and start getting mentally ill people and criminals off the street.

We can´t fix stupid. Ignore those morons. Buy a firearm today. Buy some firearm stocks as they are low now but will come roaring back. Buy some ammo, magazines, join a shooting club, start the process to obtain the ´permit´.
Let´s all do this to show we won´t be pushed around by the stupid. Let all your liberal ´friends´ know that we´re buying even more now.It will drive them more crazy than they already are.

If the media is reporting that ´´60 to 75´´ protestors were there, then it probably means about 20.

I´m getting a new pistol for Christmas, and finally joining the NRA. It´s time to take a stand (while I still can)!!!!!

I have never heard the NRA indicate in any way that they favor allowing mentally ill people being able to purchase, possess, or use any sort of firearms.

FTA: "The NRA takes tens of millions in corporate donations from gun makers and uses that money to lobby Congress and defeat anyone who opposes any gun-related law whatsoever."
-CREDO´s Josh Nelson

Well, aside from being a flat-out lie, how about this:

"Planned Parenthood takes tens of millions in taxpayer-funded revenues and uses that money to lobby Congress and defeat anyone who opposes any pro-life law whatsoever."
-BaseballFan

Mr. Nelson seems to have a problem with how PRIVATE donations are made. Does he also have a problem with the millions of innocent unborn babies have been slaughtered by "doctors" over the years? I´d say the fatality rate in abortion clinics is astronomically higher than it is in any other single place.

#4, better to start the ´process´ to force your state to recognize the 2nd amendment codified right of citizens to bear arms and teach them what ´shall not be infringed´ means.
For those mush-minded who think ´common sense´ laws are needed - exactly how are criminals kept from weapons when they don´t jump through the hoops? And all those laws against murder, rape and robbery really keep people safe from would-be criminals who are stopped by those laws, right? All those ´common sense´ gun laws do is keep people disarmed and let the government know who among the law-abiding citizenry have weapons.

There are a lot of organizations in the DC area that exist to take away our constitutional rights. The NRA is one of the few fighting to retain our rights.

Interest is already waning. In a month, it will be "Newtown, what´s that???"

One or more of the parents will become anti-gun activists (we have one here in CO from Columbine), and they´ll go around the country preaching to anti-gun groups, and possibly testifying at hearings. With any luck they´ll be ineffective.

Most Americans recognize that guns aren´t the problem. The problem is crazies with weapons - guns, knives, swords, hammers, ice picks, cars, screwdrivers, bricks etc.

Keeping crazies away from weapons is primarily a family problem. Empower families to commit mentally-ill relatives.

Since they were so concerned about gun crimes, they were there to JOIN the NRA and help pressure lying Democrats like Bloomberg, don´t kid yourself he is a Democrat, and Emanuel, to pass Project Exile instead of plea bargaining down gun crimes. The liberal, Democrats haven´t done a darn thing about criminals shooting, robbing and raping anyone unfortunate enough to live in almost any American city where the law abiding citizen is unarmed, but the sadistic criminals aren´t. Buy a clue anti-gun nuts.

Good time for the NRA to hand out free memberships again for numbers. They can attach a petition to the email.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s endorsement. As Breitbart News reported, the club--based in

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
