So, the NRA, Wal-Mart and Joe Biden walk into a bar . . .
That’s the joke, if you need a punchline, make one up.
Anyhoo, there was this meeting where a bunch of political players were going to tell corporations, gun rights people, and others exactly what was going to happen. Make no mistake, that was what was going on. They do not want to negotiate or “have a conversation” they want to lecture and, like the crocodile, promise to eat you last. So, what was the result? Well, here’s a transcript of shots across the bow.
We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners – honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen. Instead, we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works – and what does not.
Biden has said he’d have recommendations by Tuesday. Here’s hoping they are rightly ignored. The key here is The House. Write your reps.
