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.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees with tax and

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
