NRA President David Keene would like you to feel bad for him. After years of ensuring unnecessary gun proliferation at the behest of the gun industry, Keene has found himself on the losing end of the gun debate and he’s feeling put upon. Specifically, Keene is receiving death threats for his role in making sure mass murderers have as easy a time as possible getting the guns they need to wipe out a classroom of kids.
I can’t imagine why people are upset with him.
But Keene knows who to blame! Just like guns are never responsible for the astronomical amount of gun violence in America, so, too, is Keene’s efforts to get more guns out on the street completely unrelated to his unpopularity!
It’s really all Obama’s fault:
What this reflects are two things. One is the uncivil way in which idealogues on the left in this country go after their enemies. The second thing it shows is the reflection of the left and the President of the United States’ attempt to demonize and blame those who disagree with them for everything that he doesn’t like.

Curiously, Keene didn’t seem particularly put out over the past 4 years as fellow NRA death merchant, Wayne LaPierre accused President Obama of getting ready to “destroy the Second Amendment:”
If you want a glimpse of a genuine nightmare for America, just look at what’s headed our way.
But unlike a nightmare, this isn’t some fantasy. It’s a very real, very dangerous conspiracy of public deception intended to destroy your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. It’s targeted directly at you.
And it’ll succeed unless you recognize it, understand it, and take action now to stop it.
Over the past three years, the Obama administration and its anti-gun allies have been engaged in a silent but sophisticated long-term conspiracy to:
1. Neutralize gun owners and NRA voters as a political force in national elections, and thereby:
2. Win re-election to a second term in the White House, where they then will be immune to the will of voters and free to continue consolidating and misusing their ever-increasing power to:
3. Prosecute a full-scale, sustained, all-out campaign to excise the Second Amendment from our Bill of Rights through legislation, litigation, regulation, executive orders, judicial fiat, international treaties—in short, all the levers of power of all three branches of government.
Neutralize, conspiracy, destroy, nightmare, targeted: All words deliberately chosen to stoke the fear of gun fetishists. Fear that will turn to anger. Anger that will be directed at Obama.
Former President Bill Clinton said it best:
“It takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did!”
Here’s some articles on the NRA’s website that showcase how unhinged their rhetoric is:
Here’s What Could Happen If You Don’t Defeat Obama! – The election before the knock on our door.
Send President Obama His Walking Papers!:
The only way Freedom can survive today is if gun owners across America go “All In” on Election Day.
I know you’ve given in the past, and I thank you for your support. I know you understand the danger. But too many gun owners in America don’t.
The Power Is In Your Hands:
There is no greater freedom than the ability to own a firearm to protect yourself, your family, your community and your country. That freedom is the heart and soul of our nation. And that soul is at stake in this election.
You know it, I know it and gun owners everywhere feel it in their hearts. We’re on edge about the future of our firearms and our freedom. It’s a fear that’s sending gun owners and would-be gun owners out to gun shops in droves. Sales of firearms and Right-to-Carry permit applications are skyrocketing because the stakes of this election are clear: If Barack Obama wins, the Second Amendment will fall.
Got that? Guns mean freedom and Obama wants to take them away. In other words, Obama wants to enslave you!
I wonder if Keene thinks it’s OK to “demonize…those who disagree” that every man, woman and child should have as many guns as possible? Probably not. In the NRA’s world everyone that owns a gun is a potential victim of tyranny and the best way to protect yourself is with MOAR GUNZ! Preferably from one of the NRA approved gun manufacturers.
Remember, the NRA’s goal is distract us as much as possible so we get bogged down in the details and lose focus on the fight to reduce gun violence. Read this article, grasp the level of hypocrisy of Keene and the NRA and then go back to ignoring them. They’re nothing but smoke and mirrors.
