If new National Rifle Association President, retired Col. Oliver North of Iran Contra fame, is to be believed, the anti-gun lobby that has been amazingly vocal since the shooting in Parkland, Florida, should really be considered terrorists.
“They’re not activists—this is civil terrorism. This is the kind of thing that’s never been seen against a civil rights organization in America,” Oliver North told the Washington Times. “You go back to the terrible days of Jim Crow and those kinds of things—even there you didn’t have this kind of thing.”…
“They can do all the cyberwar against us—they’re doing it,” North said. “They can use the media against us—they are. They’ve gone after our bank accounts, our finances, our donors and obviously individual members. “It’s got to stop.”
We’ve all been watching the rhetoric on mainstream media outlets for some time. One of the yet to be addressed scandals of the Obama Administration was the Department of Justice pressuring banks into closing the accounts of certain industries – including firearms makers and sellers. That is not new information. But individuals?
There are people in the United States that do not like firearms. That is their right, just the same as it is the right of gun owners to be in possession of them. Those are fundamental rights that cannot be taken away with wishful thinking or the stroke of a pen. The entire culture would have to change for the second amendment to ever be in danger in this country. Thanks to the Founding Fathers’ forethought, our basic, fundamental civil rights are in a part of the law that is very difficult to change. Informed Americans know that. We also know a propaganda campaign when we see one.
The gun control people can go pound sand.
