Progressives Plan March on NRA Headquarters Monday Afternoon

Progressives are planning a march on the NRA Monday.

The group says on its Facebook page:
“No one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association.”
Talking Points Memo reported:

CREDO, a progressive grassroots group, is organizing a march on the National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm in Washington, D.C. Monday.

“After the shooter Adam Lanza, no one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association,” CREDO wrote on the Facebook page where the march is being organized. “To stop the senseless killing we must first stop the NRA.”

    [Video] Innocents Betrayed — The True Story of Gun Control

    Documentary showing that “gun control” has historically been used to disarm citizens and make them helpless before governments commit genocide. Dramatically covers major genocides in the Soviet Union, Germany, Uganda, Rwanda, China, Turkey, and other countries.Shows how “gun control” in the U.S. has been used to victimize blacks, Indians, children, women, and others.Combines gut-level emotional appeal and fast-paced, powerful graphics with a cool statement of historic facts and quotes from the relevant laws.

    Reports: Lanza Attempted To Buy Rifle Days Before Shooting, Was Denied

    NBC’s Pete Williams reported this morning that, according to federal and state officials, there were four handguns found at the scene of the Connecticut school shooting, instead of two as previously thought. Adam Lanza also had an assault-style rifle that he reportedly left in his car. Williams also told the Today audience that on Tuesday of this week, December 11, Lanza attempted to purchase another rifle from a sporting goods store in Danbury, Connecticut, but was denied.

    According to Williams, Lanza was unable to buy the rifle for several reasons, one of which was Connecticut’s stricter gun laws which mandate a waiting period before purchase.

    Is CREDO gonna have a march against EVIL? Psychotic behaviors? How about Planned Parenthood? No connection between the NRA and Lanza, c’mon.

    A handful of Marxist douchebags, who support the complete disarmament of the American people, are not going to stop anything, except perhaps vehicular traffic, and that only by virtue of their slow, waddling, fat, self-satisfied, commie asses. I would expect that bloated bloviator, Marxist Michael Moore himself to lead the slow, dismal and tedious parade.
    The US Federal government is actually to blame for the shootings, with their creation of gun free, victim disarmament zones. We need our Second Amendment back, so that we can protect ourselves from the killers our government has enabled to kill us. We need to be able to return fire and live, rather than merely die in place as is now required by Federal law.

    This FASCIST PUTCH on our gun rights is so prepared it looks like they had advance warning the Sandy Hook massacre was coming. We need to check the voting records to see if Newtown is another one of those 100% Obama voting districts. This massacre may actually be some kind of perverse Jonestown cult human sacrificial offering made voluntarily by the community to their demiGod Obama …skin in the game to launch the assault on our 2cnd amendment rights …. the whole Adam Lanza story a fake ruse.

    Strictest gun control areas have the most violent crime

    Remember all this when you hear all the usual political suspects call for “gun control legislation.” This legislation will, by definition, only hurt law-abiding citizens who would never even think of harming innocent children. At the same time, gun control laws will do absolutely nothing to stop psychopathic criminals from using guns, knives or other weapons to commit mass violence.

    Proof of this is readily apparent. “One of the interesting characteristics of mass shootings is that they generally occur in places where firearms are [already] banned: malls, schools, etc,” writes professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds in a USA Today opinion piece. “That was the finding of a famous 1999 study by John Lott of the University of Maryland and William Landes of the University of Chicago, and it appears to have been borne out by experience since then as well.”

    Read more

    Renolds goes on to expose the “big lie” of gun control: the idea that criminals will abide by “gun-free zones” or laws of any kind. The very premise of being a criminal is that they ignore laws.

    If anything, gun-free zones are “a magnet for mass shooters,” explains Reynolds. And he’s right: Aurora, Colorado had some of the most stringent gun control laws in America. But instead of reducing gun crime, all it did was ensure that victims were completely disarmed and unable to shoot back.

    None of this logic and reason, of course, will stop people like President Obama from trying to punish law-abiding citizens across America by taking from them their right to armed self defense. Then again, gun control advocates never claimed to have any basis in logic or reason. They have habitually resorted to fear and contrived emotions to try to push their disarmament agenda, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that gun control causes MORE crime, not less.

    As history has shown, mass disarmament leads to even more deaths via government violence against unarmed citizens. I explain this in the following video:

    Disarming of America in General. This of course is a form of gun Control. Primarily our national defense.

    Tax the rich or I take away your gun, sound far fetched but dumber words have been spoken by this administration.

    One goal in the ongoing war on America by the left is, and always has been, the disarming of America. Is this what the open mike conversation between Hussein Obama and Russia’s Medvedev in March 2012 was about?
    In his own words:
    I’m the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning and as president, I will end it. Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.
    I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.
    I will not weaponize space.
    I will slow our development of future combat systems and
    I will institute an independent defense priorities board to ensure that the quadrennial defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.
    Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal,
    I will not develop new nuclear weapons.
    I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material and
    I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBM’s off hair trigger alert and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.

    GOP lawmaker wishes Sandy Hook principal was armed with assault rifle

    Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, says he wishes Dawn Hochsprung, the principal of the Sandy Hook Elementary School, was armed with an M-4 assault rifle when she confronted Adam Lanza, the shooter who killed 20 children.

    “I wish to God she had an M-4 in her office locked up so when she heard gunfire she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands but she takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids,” Gohmert said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

    Dawn Hochsprung, Sandy Hook’s principal, was reportedly killed when she confronted Lanza after he forced his way into the school.

    The M-4 carbine is a smaller version of the M-16 and AR-15 assault rifles. It was developed for urban combat and its semi-automatic version, which is available to civilians, can fire 45 rounds per minute.

    Lanza was armed with a semi-automatic M-4 Bushmaster rifle and two semi-automatic handguns, a Glock and a Sig Sauer.

    Dr. H. Wayne Carver II, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner, said all of the victims at the school were killed by a “long gun” rifle, suggesting the Bushmaster was the murder weapon.

    The NRA has to get out in front of this and Vociferously and unapologetically point out how “Gun Free” zones and people’s lack of ability to defend themselves are leading to these type of slaughter’s. Obama and the dems, along with the complicit pre-planned ( Not cave ) by Boehner and the traitorous repubs, intend to pass some type of Assault Weapon’s Ban before they go on vacation. This is why the NRA and Conservatives cannot try and play nice out of respect. The dems feed off of this and view it as a weakness to be run over and exploited. Obama and the dems have had Free and unfettered whacks at the “Pinata” Against Firearms with nary a word in defense by organization’s like the NRA. NRA,just what the Heck are people paying dues for?

    Once again, the Right is being handcuffed by an inability to state a simple truth. It happpens all the time–it happened during the election, when Romney pointed out to his supporters that 47% of America is comprised of lazy takers who will never ever in a billion years vote for someone talking up personal initiative and threatening to cut their welfare benefits.

    And, we’re seeing it again with this shooting on Friday.

    The simple politically incorrect truth? So what. Big deal. What’s different about this (or VT or Columbine) than any of the probably 100 murders that took place in America on Friday, other than the scale?

    Barry rails about how he’s had to comment on these types of murders 4 times since he became President (probably most upset because it happened on the weekend and ruined his chance to golf). Four times in 4 years? BIG….FREAKING….DEAL.

    Sure, it’s a bad thing. But it’s not any kind of an epidemic of violence.

    But, blah blah blah…can’t point out the undeniable fact that crap like this is bound to happen every once in a while, but it’s not an indication that the second ammendment needs to be eliminated.

    4 times in 4 years? Um…that’s pretty damn good in a violent desensitized nation of 300 million.

    The NRA needs to get in front of this and not let the left get all the press. Like many on this post have said, DO SOMETHING. I was a member of the NRA for many years but when they just sit there and take the crap the left smear on them, I didn’t renew my membership. I couldn’t do it. Just like AARP, NRA will start losing members if they don’t DO SOMETHING.

  • iowegian

    We need to march on the Department of Health and Human Services and call for the firing of the senior leadership who have refused to respond to the mental health crisis. Just like Michelle Obama did in her hospital job, DHHS is tossing out the mentally unwell, leaving them to become agitated, confused, angered and hostile without appropriate help.

    ObamaCare, passed nearly four years ago, could have covered this care immediately, yet due to Obama’s greedy desire to control the economy rather than address actual care needs of those in dire circumstances, people like this sick individual were left without appropriate care and control.

    Any American who ignores holding our government health care officials and their political bosses accountable, and instead points at objects used by the unwell to shift the blame, should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting the death of these children for their political gains.

    Blood is on your hands already, progressives, for letting this sicko kill the children. You’d better realize we’re not going to become further powerless to protect ourselves when the government fails society.

  • Ah. So the shooter was a member of the NRA? He wasn’t? He had no connection to the NRA? I fail to see how the NRA is involved. Merely supporting gun ownership rights as the NRA does in no way makes the NRA culpable for a massacre carried out by a dinky dau punk who should have been committed to a mental hospital.

    Obama is obvious itching to pick a fight with the Second Amendment. Imagine if some President in the future wanted to pick a fight with the Voter Rights Amendment. Obama doesn’t have enough on his plate that he’s currently ignoring, so what’s one more issue that he can politicize and then ignore after he lights the fire?

    Obama is attacking every segment of the Bill Of Rights and the Constitution. Especially those he deems “unfair”.

    Somehow, someway – this country survived 236 years without his all knowing and all seeing wisdom.

    Maybe, just maybe, this idiot is wrong about everything and history shows he is not correct in any one instance.

    And yet again, time after time, our message is diluted and oppressed because the Left controls the media. Whatever message Progs want to get out there is spread as the gospel truth. Our side will NEVER win ANYTHING as long as this continues, and it’s SO FREAKIN’ FRUSTRATING. Even the NRA with all their money and clout can’t seem to get a handle on the narrative, much less the Truth. This tragedy has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with mental illness. Not only that, the so-called ‘assault rifle’ was left in the damn car; only handguns were used, yet here’s the Left demonizing and going after the ‘assault’ rifle. UGH UGH UGH @ the disinformation and ignorance on our opponents side and the ignorant ‘Honey Boo Boo’s’ who will be swayed by it all.

  • Joe Blow

    It is the violent, no morals, anything goes world the liberals have pushed in their agenda that has contributed to this tragedy. Nothing makes sense any more. They told us don’t judge others’ behaviors and God is not allowed in public. See what it gets you? The NRA pushes responsible gun ownership, not mass killings. Nothing seems to bother them when any term abortion takes babies lives or a president that is fine with killing during the birthing process. They won’t stop until the public is disarmed but the bad guys aren’t…stupid people.

  • I’ll tell you who and what is at fault that 20 poor innocent little children lost their lives, and that is liberals who believed that no one should be locked up in a mental institution or mental care facility for troubled individual like this boy who should have been under the care of a psychiatrist locked up three days a week, but instead it’s liberalism who deemed it against the rights of people to have the sort of things like mental institutions with the movie “One Flew Over the Coocoo’s Nest” and the indictment against the mental health laws in America defunded all the mental hospitals and other like mental care facilities back in the 1970’s and all those nuts were turned out onto the streets to become the crazy homeless people you see walking behind shopping carts with ten layers of clothing on.

    Which was better having a place to put crazy people like Mr. Lanza so he couldn’t ever hurt anyone, or just have him on meds which I’ll guarantee you he was off for a long time, and take a chance that somebody like him would freak out one day and murder a whole bunch of people? Ohhhh, but liberals believed that it wasn’t “FAIR” that nuts had to be locked up because they had the right to be free to walk around like everyone else. And liberals are just as lacksed towards criminals to. They believe that illegal Mexican aliens who haven’t got a police record should receive citizenship so their relatives who are violent drug dealing murderers brought here under our current immigration laws that are being violated every day by the very liberals who run it.

    Take our guns away, Dianne Feinstein, Barack Obama? “I’ll give up my gun when you pry my cold dead fingers off the barrel.”

    Tell me all you want about this mother and her son…but I’d just about bet my last dollar the glaring deficiency in their lives was an active faith in God.

    Really creepy, if that UK article (via the shrew) is true: how INAUTHENTIC this woman seems. Something’s not right…I would have guessed her to be a lefty/liberal, especially as she was completely oblivious to her son’s (or her own) insanity.

    I smell something rotten. Another fraud perhaps? Was she getting “professional” help? And had been programmed to be a charicature of what the Left (Napolitano) has labeled a potential domestic terrorist?

    I put NOTHING beyond this commie crowd. People are tools merely to be used. Don’t be fooled into thinking they care one whit about your life. Haven’t they proven that time and again? Or are your eyes still blinded?

  • Oh, yeah, and it’s “Progressives” who are going to march tomorrow? I hope that everyone knows that the word Progressive means COMMUNISTS!!! are going to march tomorrow against FREEDOM AND LIBERTY TO BE ABLE TO ACT ON OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO PROTECT OURSELVES AGAINST A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT FULL OF PROGRESSIVES WHO WANT TO TAKE OUR GUNS AWAY THINKING THAT IS GOING TO SOLVE HUMAN MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS. Guns are inanimate objects that cannot harm anyone or anything, a human being has to pick one up and pull the trigger first, the gun cannot go off by itself, some nut job like Lanza has to be the one pulling the trigger.

    You notice that his mother never killed anyone with her guns and as a matter of fact she was a prepper who was preparing for Obama and Communists like Dianne Feinstein to send Russian troops to her door to take her guns away from her and take her to some prison camp, that is if she lives long enough to even get there.

  • gastorgrab

    Liberals are too busy “taking care” of people who neither need nor want to be taken care of than to provide the basic social structure for the mentally ill.

    At least the mentally ill have an excuse for their idiotic behavior.

    I’m surprised that none of them have concocted a new ‘Global Warming’ angle to this massacre.

  • bigkahuna

    They should also possibly consider guns with fingerprint trigger locks for them so its not possible for a kids to use them if they ever got to them??? Something to consider

  • And if I’m not the first, let me be the first, that this guy was some strange government operative whose parents worked for the intellegence branches sometime in the past, and this boy of theirs was programmed to do this killing at a predetermined time. Now, isn’t it funny that the next “assault weapons” ban bill that Dianne Feinstein just finished working on is ready at the very exact time that everyone who after Obama was re-elected said that the first thing Obama would do as soon as he took office was ban the 2nd Amendment ? Isn’t it funny that Dianne’s bill is ready and now that the Socialist Democrats have created the solution now they were ready for the problem. You know that’s how the Socialist Democrats do things is they come up with the solution before there ever is a problem and then they create it so their solution fits the problem just perfectly? Isn’t that funny?

  • #60 Gastorgrab,

    I don’t know, I heard it on the radio when I was “dx’ing” last night. Then my cousin said she heard it herself from somewhere. You know, I don’t really know and it doesn’t really matter, all I know is she was a legal law abiding gun owner just like me and millions of others in America. I’ve never had any fantasy’s about murdering anyone with my guns, but I keep them for target practice and whether or not this lady shot them or not I don’t know that either, but on the TV the other night I heard that she had a bunch more guns including a M-1 Garande. I thought that was cool of her.

    Now, here’s the burning question that I’ve not heard another soul say one single word about and that is where is the Father??? And who was the guy in Lanza’s Dad’s house who Lanza shot??? And where is Lanza’s girlfriend? You know damn well the cops want to get their sticky hands on her!!

    Where is the father and what does he do for a living????? Does he work for the Obama organizations or something incriminating?

  • Sasja

    The father works for GE.

  • If it is found out that either one of Lanza’s parents had any ties to Obama or some hard core liberals, that will be the end of the gun grab from the liberals. They will be scared to death that ties to Obama and the Communists would be to much trouble to try to fend off. They will put the gun grab off until some other time. Just like Fast and Furious. We don’t hear anymore about that now that Hold has been found in contemp of Congress for lying and failure to obey Congresses order to turn over documents. And Bengazie has gone away now to that we found the Rice woman was covering up for Obama, the media is silent as soon as Obama is found guilty.

    Every one of these nuts that is out killing people are all found to be clinically mentally ill. Why? And everyone of them have been found to be hard core liberals. And as soon as that is exposed the media hushes the news up about some killing. Just like Aurora, Colo. The guys family turned out to be involved with our intellegence agencies and the media is hushed up. When will this killing go away?

  • Sasja

    Peter Lanza is VP and Tax Director for GE Energy Financial Services. He lives in Stamford. The shooter killed his mother at the house he shared with her and then drove her car to the school.

  • Sasja

    Can someone explain why Peter Lanza looks familiar? Where have we seen this photo before?

  • gastorgrab

    Most everything they’ve attempted to conceal has been in reaction to one of their failed ideas, not in pushing the ideas themselves. Benghazi and Fast & Furious are both prime examples of that.

    There is no reason for Obama, with the office that he holds, to take chances on deceptions that couldn’t easily be explained away. I don’t care how corrupt his intentions are, he’s still trying to consolidate his power over government. Pulling a ‘Morsi’ would put a quick end to his illusion of integrity.

    What liberals are doing is more like setting a fire. They cant possibly know which direction the fire will burn, but just in case, they ALWAYS have a plan standing by to take advantage of the situation.

    Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in past decades, despite the impression given by the media.

    In fact, the high point for mass killings in the U.S. was 1929, according to criminologist Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections.

    Incidents of mass murder in the U.S. declined from 42 in the 1990s to 26 in the first decade of this century.

    The chances of being killed in a mass shooting are about what they are for being struck by lightning.

    Until the Newtown horror, the three worst K–12 school shootings ever had taken place in either Britain or Germany.

    Almost all of the public-policy discussion about Newtown has focused on a debate over the need for more gun control. In reality, gun control in a country that already has 200 million privately owned firearms is likely to do little to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals. We would be better off debating two taboo subjects — the laws that make it difficult to control people with mental illness and the growing body of evidence that “gun-free” zones, which ban the carrying of firearms by law-abiding individuals, don’t work.

  • Bob

    This is the disturbing pattern for lunatic liberals to jump before they know all of the facts. Is there any blame to the Mother who had the guns and who knew her son could get access to them? What about the violent video games that foster some of these mentally ill shooters?
    If anything, schools should have the ability to arm teachers or staff to deal with this.

  • BurmaShave

    “No one is more to blame for the massacre of 20 first graders and six women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School than the National Rifle Association.”

    It is unfortunate that people whose thinking is so dysfunctional that they make statements like this are allowed to vote.

    Of course, the person actually responsible for the Newtown massacre, Adam Lanza, was a lunatic; understandably liberals sympathize with him.

    “No one is more to blame … than the National Rifle Association.” In other words, practically everybody who owns a gun or condones gun ownership is to be blamed, except, of course, the bodyguards of their favorite Liberal politicians.

    As it so happens the NRA is not a person, it is an association. However, Liberals prefer to think in abstractions, like classes of people. Individual people and individual facts are stumbling blocks for Liberals and Progressives.

    Watch for the thoroughly biased Liberal media to make the absolute most of this Progressive protest; very much UNlike the deliberately unreported hundreds of thousands who turn out for the annual March for LIFE.

    The irony is that the many thousands who March for LIFE do so to save millions of completely innocent babies from abortion. The Progressives, however, are trying to deflect attention from the lunatics that they want to roam free.

    I think a link with this post is to an article that says Adam Lanza kept to himself, indoors, playing violent video games most of the time:

    Note that the US has a violent crime rate per 100,000 of just 470 which puts us below every single single country in the above list – all of which have far more restrictive gun laws than the US.

    Read the rest here. It pretty much demolishes the case for gun control and shows that a lot of the ‘facts’ used to justify restricting guns aren’t actually true.

  • More gun control or banning guns will not solve the problem when the underlying cause of such violence is mental illness. Why don’t these singleminded fools do something really useful and meaningful and march on Washington to demand our country stops turning its back on the mentally ill. Demand families and loved ones have somewhere to go to get help for their sick friends and family members.

    After that they’re going to march on the headquarters of Cold Steele, then after that they’re going over to the Hoosier Baseball bat manufacturers, then to Ford auto manufacturers, along with the Seagram’s Distillery – then G-d willing they will all head to Dumbsh*ts Anonymous …

    My NRA is going to need some funds now. Guess I’ll go contribute — again.
