” In a blog for today’s American Thinker, Joseph Smith says that National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre is getting the “Alinsky Treatment” from leftists in the media and elsewhere. He’s correct because as he said, they are attempting to freeze him as a/the target, personalize the gun issue, and demonize him for defending our right to bear arms–a right that’s guaranteed by our Constitution.
Make no mistake: the Second Amendment to the Constitution is the real target of leftist fanatics in this country–not LaPierre and Pratt. They are merely the faces of the issue, and that’s why they are under attack.
Gun control advocates (i.e., private gun ownership abolitionists) in politics and the media will use every tragedy they can in their never-ending quest to do away with our right to bear arms. They won’t let up, and they will use every dirty trick in the book to try and sway public opinion. To date, they have been unsuccessful as Kurt Schlichter explains in hisop-ed piece titled “Liberals Panic As They Lose the Gun Narrative”:
When you argue for a living, you can tell how an argument is going for you. The evidence and my gut both tell me that the liberals have lost control of the gun control narrative.
Not for lack of trying – it was almost as if they were poised to leap into action across the political, media and cultural spectrum the second the next semi-human creep shot up another “gun free zone.” This was their big opening to shift the debate and now it’s closing. They’ve lost, and they are going nuts.
Winston Churchill said, “Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, give up. Never give up. Never give up. Never give up.” ”
