NAGR Lies, Yet No One Seems to Care

The National Association of Gun Rights – or NAGR, for short – has displayed this graphic for a long time.  They have been posting this graphic since before the massacre of human life at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

See, before the Sandy Hook gun massacre, POTUS had done nothing when it came to gun control.  In fact, the federal laws governing guns were relaxed even further.  Now, in the wake of a long string of gun massacres – dating all the way back to Littleton, Colorado and Columbine High School – the President has decided that the best course of action is to pass laws to make these kinds of massacres less likely.  Not impossible, but less likely.

Predictably, the right and the rest of the ravenous, unfettered 2nd amendment has decided that any attempt to change current law is tantamount to a tyrannical disintegration of the entire constitution.

That is – and this is the nicest way I can put this – hogwash.

The point is that NAGR (classy, right?) has been perpetuating this myth since before December 14th – and further back in this president’s term.  It’s a lie.  It was a lie back then, and the spirit in which they keep using these types of hateful graphics makes them false and misleading, to this day.

Those who support sensible gun control regulations have made the NRA the boogeyman – for good reason.  However, this NAGR organization has quietly been able to perpetuate this hateful, untrue rhetoric without so much as a whimper from any prominent, national figure.

NAGR lies.  Plain and simple.  The problem with that is what they are lying about has the potential to claim the lives of many more innocent people than need be.

I would ask NAGR to reconsider their use of lies to further their agenda, but those pleas will fall on deaf ears.

    that’s not entirely true; he was involved in the gun running operation that let weapons get illegally transferred to Mexican drug cartels; one of one which ended up being used to kill a border patrol agent. but it’s convenient to forget about that, I suppose.

      Well, YOU certainly haven’t forgotten. AND, if that’s the argument you want to make, you’re making my argument for me. NAGR lies, and you don’t care.

      Bet you wished that went better.
