Lib Senator Chris Murphy: The NRA Must Come to Table on Gun Control – They’ve Lost Their Backers (Video)

Freshman Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut told CNN today the National Rifle Association is flat-out wrong.

“Newtown fundamentally changed things. And the NRA just doesn’t get this. They’ve got to come to the table on gun control just as they say they’re coming to the table on mental health because their previous backers in the House and the Senate aren’t with them anymore.

Spoken like a true liberal. He ought to get along well with his peers in the US Senate.

    I think that the good Senator misunderstands things. Senators do not back the NRA. The NRA and its many millions of members back Senators, especially those who wish to remain Senators.

    Surprise, surprise another Lib walking in the blood of dead children (never let a good crises pass), I’m sure Alinsky would be proud of this little commie pig.

    Related: (from a comment on a CFP story):

    “It can now be reported that Nancy Champion Lanza, the mother of the alleged Connecticut shooter, Adam Lanza, was a CIA P2 analyst working for the Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and also for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    DARPA specializes in the use of simulated video internet games for the
    purpose of mind control and staging psyops..

    Sound familiar? The father of the boy in the Columbine murders was also in psyops.

  • Robert

    This is just another politician who is trying to use the emotionalism of the moment to influence legislation.

    He is trying to politicize emotion.

  • Limousine Barry

    I urge the NRA and their supports to come groveling back to the negotiating table! Give up and give me your guns and I will give them to the Mexican Gangs!

    I am sure that the Mexican Gangs can put your guns to better use! And, I am sure Eric Holder will agree! Good day.

  • StandUpChuck

    Sorry chris, you are wrong.

  • Bigkahuna

    Seems like the NRA membership has increased by 100,000 or more and gun sales is on record pace. i think he’s wrong by a mile. Clueless bastages. Telling us all we have changed our minds doesn’t make it so.

    So typical Lib not an invite or suggestion, but a demand. Screw him and his King Dingleberry Soetoro

  • Sasja

    Granny, you are so right.

    This victim needs to re-think his attitude about guns and perhaps he will. There may not be anyone armed to help him the next time he finds himself in a pickle.–186572461.html

    Well the “narrative” that the Left is pushing in unison is that EVERYBODY (every smart person) is behind them and everybody else (all the stupid people) who aren’t with them are merely knuckle-dragging hicks who are so busy clinging to their bible and guns that they cannot recognize that they are on the losing side of this argument.

    In Germany 1940-1945, anybody who didn’t go along with the “final solution” was considered to be on the wrong side of the argument and was kicked out of the Nazi Party for not being smart enough to a member of the party of the master race.

  • I can’t think of a better comment than Granny #1’s … hear, hear!

    No wonder the Senate’s total IQ is barely above room temperature.

  • Ma

    Can someone please explain to me why there was an executive order to increase the base salaries of Congress?

  • Tenacious221

    Society as a whole needs to start to realize that just because you WANT something to go a certain way (in this case, no support for the NRA) doesn’t make it so.

    Same idea goes for calls at sporting events.

  • bobdog

    Actually, the esteemed gentleman from Connecticut should take a pretty careful look at his numbers. The NRA is adding 100,000 new members a week, gun store shelves are empty, ammo is in short supply, and it’s more than NRA members that disapprove of this railroad to hell Democrats are whipping up.

    How do I say this? The guy is just flipping wrong.

  • Looks like a typical liberal pussy boy.

  • mark1973

    NRA, Don’t you Dare take one step back to these tyrants. Also we are keeping an eye on any “Mental Health” language anyone might be using as a way to get “Back door” Firearms control. The left in every county throughout their History have been experts in committing people to gulags,sanitarium’s and denying them their Right’s, on mental health evaluation’s. They are doing it to our Veteran’s currently,denying them their God Given Second Ammendment Right’s based on the slightest bit of problem’s such as “Having difficulty to sleep”. The last thing Obama and the left would like is hundred’s of thousands of trained and armed Patriotic American Veteran’s who might be in opposition to them if they try to create a dictatorship.

  • bobdog

    And another thing. Why on earth would the NRA have any interest in coming back to the table to hear another speech? The White House’s idea of “worthwhile discussions” means that the White House lays out its demands, allows no discussions and doesn’t give an inch, followed by press releases complaining about how intractable the other side is.

    “Compromise” is something that somebody else does. And then Obama does what he wants anyway by executive order, without bothering Congress.

    Think about it. That’s the way Obama has handled every issue for the past two years. Government by presidential fiat.

  • He’s a liberal. The idea that the gov’t is backing the NRA vs the NRA and gun owners supporting candidates is a perfect example of how they think.


    Funny I just joined. And I am a cheapskate.

  • Multitude

    “Lots of backers” in the Senate and House have rejected the Constitution? Sounds like we have a lot of impeaching to begin.

    Politics is war by other means… it’s time to bring the fight.

  • Indiana

    I’m a card carrying, non-gun-owning member of the NRA, and, I have a 145 pound german shepherd named “shotgun.” I’m content, knowing that neighbors on both sides of me “carry.”

  • Fu#k Obama

    So, on Tuesday will Imam Obama come out demonizing the NRA and the ‘extremest’ “bitter clingers” who put children in the middle of this debate to keep automatic guns, that have one purpose only: killing innocent children and people?

    Or will he say, your right, gun control never stops mentally ill, violent sociopaths…..

    Don’t hold your breath for any reason to come from this radical muslim commie….

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    Up your Chris, just try and take them.

  • talgus

    the only conspiracy I see is the left’s creation of “gun free schools” to make very soft targets of those that emote the most compassion from tragedy and the lefty ACLU’s campaign to make sure a supply of “tragedy perpetrators” are freely circulating in society.

  • Joscefi

    #8 Bigkahuna, and #19 bobdog beat me to it.

    I was going to respond with a similar thought, asking how many new memberships the NRA has issued since the Newtown murders, compared to how many new memberships the Demonocratic Party has issued.

    This is just another iteration of Alinsky RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” !

    Patriotic Group Building Armed Neighborhood Fortress Apparently To Defend Against Obama’s Troops

    CNS: A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty.

    The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who “voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson’s ideal of Rightful Liberty.”

    According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that “neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors’ business, that neighbors live and let live.”

    Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound by the following:

    Pride in American Exceptionalism
    Our proud history of Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers, and
    Physical preparedness to survive and prevail in the face of natural catastrophes –such as Hurricanes Sandy or Katrina — or man-made catastrophes such as a power grid failure or economic collapse.

    Residents should also agree that being “prepared for the emergencies of life and being proficient with the American icon of Liberty — the Rifle — are prudent measures.”

    Some of the benefits of the Citadel community include a safe, well-prepared, patriotic community where children will be educated in school, not indoctrinated.

    The community will be protected by a perimeter wall that will be inaccessible to “tourists.” Each neighborhood within the community will have lower walls, dividing the town into defensible sections.

    The website has a link to applications where prospective residents can sign up. According to Citadel, more than 200 families have completed applications, even before any land has been purchased.

    Two Gun Makers Killed In Two Days, And No Answers

    The Examiner: On Friday, January 4, the owner of Noveske Rifleworks, 36-year-old John Noveske, was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Highway 260 in Oregon.

    According to the Oregon State Police, at approximately 9:13 p.m., the Toyota Land Cruiser driven by Noveske left the road near El Camino Way, and slammed into two boulders. The vehicle rolled and Noveske was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The following message is currently posted on Noveske Rifleworks’ Facebook page:

    “Noveske Rifleworks would ask you to remember the passing of our founder, John Noveske, who died Friday, January 4th 2013 in an automobile accident.

    John planned for all eventualities, and wanted to ensure any changes would be as seamless as possible for our customers, dealers, suppliers, employees and friends. While this will be a trying time, we do not expect a change in the day to day operations of Noveske Rifleworks. We would like to thank you for your support as we deal with our loss, and would ask that instead of flowers, you consider a donation to a cause we will announce at later date.[,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,]

    Time for the AMERICAN PEOPLE to stand together and CLEAN HOUSE in Washington…We The People put them there and we can take them all out with our votes…They continue to forget that We The People pay them and the continuously VOTE AGAINST our wants and needs.
    They will USE the MENTAL HEALTH issue to keep guns from our VETERANS, that is just WRONG. We have a bunch of crazies because we are a Godless immoral society.

    Biden’s meetings were all for show. Obama’s decisions have been made and he needed window dressing.

    Not sure what they think about the NRA’s declining influence. 350 new memberships at the Richmond Gun Show yesterday and a steady stream of new registrations this morning.

  • bigL

    the govt os creating the dialog. If the regime wants changes they can hold hearings and go thru the amentdment process. To thesates toratify. Thereare a number of amendments thatwere ratified in months. IT can bedone. But if you notice with the Gang of 6 and Gan of 14 and the executive ordrs the congress does not want to vote on anything. No roll-calls, no repesentation.we have no seat at thetable.
    The GOP is completely useless.

  • Common sence

    Wow. The congress dont back the NRA? thats a bold statement . There are millions of law abiding citizens who back the NRA the GOA
    And many other pro 2nd Amendment organizations. There are hundreds of voting gun owners who voted this guy in. And they can (and in my opinion should) vote him out.

  • GotFreedom

    Another delusional liberal politco hack who doesn’t deal in FACTS!

    If, Mr. Murphy, the NRA, as you claim, has lost their “backers”, then why has their membership skyrocketed since the gun control debate began??? And just to appease your liberal side Mr. Murphy, we’ve even linked to a lib site–HuffPo:

    Is anyone else getting really sick and tired of the Dems/Libs/Progressives always stretching the truth; making arguments that are devoid of FACTS? What the heck is wrong with you people out there that you continue to listen to these liars (not anyone on this site of course. . .we educate ourselves and know and understand the truth unlike the low information folks in this country).

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    Senator and Reps should be pressured right now to say where they stand on ANY further gun erosion. Start with Senator’s Udall and Bennett of Colorado….Today! Not one step further!

  • Jeannie

    I took this from another article by Tammy Bruce, on Ben Shapiro’s blowing Piers Morgan away, from the comments section:

    On gun rights, Thomas Jefferson had some ideas about protecting our freedom. Dangerous man, that Jefferson. Seems to me the absurdity lies in the transition from the 1960′s where the up-and-coming generation held massive protests against the government; is this the same generation that now demands an all-powerful government, and that dissidents be beaten into submission? Strange days indeed.

    Yes, it is the same group that rioted against the government in the 1960′s that now wants to shut down all dissent. The difference is, THEY are now in control. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

  • Jeannie

    a career in politics is not possible. Politicians in America are supposed to be private citizens who sacrifice a small portion of their lives to be public SERVANTS, before returning to private citizenship where they have to work and pay taxes and get no special compensation or health care or freedom from law, like the rest of us.

    Politics has been redefined just as they are doing with marriage. For 2% of the population, most of whom have ZERO interest in monogamous marriage, we are redefining marriage. For 1% of the population, most of whom have NO experience or interest in following the laws and work ethic of those for whom they legislate and represent, we have redefined politics.

    the parasites and the lunatics and the intolerant eugenics elitists (there is no question that population control is funded by this and there is no question how many of our global politicians back population control) are running a nation that 50 years ago would have locked them up and kept them in soft rooms, sedated and in straitjackets

  • Stella Baskomb

    Murphy says “because their previous backers in the House and the Senate aren’t with them anymore”

    Typical, vintage Murphy.

    The important people for him are not the people of Connecticut.

    The important people for him are Representatives and Senators.

    There is a term for him – but it’s not “representative of the people”.

    And God willing there are not two terms for him.

  • Linda Roberts

    The Senator’s remarks concerning the lack of mental health care available to the man who committed this evil act surprised me. It seems as if his mother was not lacking in money, and wouldn’t his father have a responsibility to pay (or put him on his haelth insurance plan)?

    I’m sorry Senator. You don’t seem to understand that there are over 4 million members, of which I am one. You then have the GOA and the NAGA, both of which I am also a member. They have not lost their backing, and you will see the full force of the organization soon, as over 160,000 new members have joined in the past 3 months alone.
