    NSSF Takes On Retired Generals Engaged In Gun Grabbing Nonsense

    NSSF Takes On Retired Generals Engaged In Gun Grabbing Nonsense.
    Sixteen of our nationís senior military officers recently penned a letter to Congress under the banner of the Giffords Veteran Coalition.
    They chose to lend their military authority and prestige to assist an ongoing political effort to further restrict their fellow law-abiding American citizensí Constitutional right to keep and bear arms because they mistakenly believe they know how to reduce criminal misuse of firearms.

    And many gun owners just can't imagine our own LEO's and military personnel enforcing gun confiscation if its ordered by the government. Scary, could lead to a bloody resolution if they try.

    Too many o!d officers that are used to people doing what they tell them to do without protest....."Uhhhhh Sir? In case you haven't noticed...I don't work for you anymore...."

    All 16 need a refresher course on the Constitution. They're talking like tin pot dictators. Might want to refresh their memories on the oath they took, too. I have no use for anyone of any rank that violates that oath, no matter what rank they achieved.

    Well in their own little worlds they ARE tin pot dictators, if you think about it...the military isn't a democracy...probably hard for them to get used to the idea that now, since they are civilians, what they think doesn't bear any more weight than what I think...

    That's rich coming from the NSSF/NRA who it would appear to be in league with said gun grabbers.

    When Lawrence Keane of the NSSF said earlier this week that firearms owner should trust in him and the NSSF "we have your backs",not very reassuring.

    Didn't the NRA endorse Harry Reid a while back? "Politics makes strange bedfellows"- - - -and the NRA and its lobbyists have been in an incestuous relationship with some of the gun grabbers for years. It's hard to drain a swamp when you're chin-deep in it on a daily basis.

    16 retirees...I'd venture a guess that most of the upper military echelon thinks the same way. Can't allow the proles the means to defend themselves if the need ever arises for the military to impose martial law on a national scale.
    The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

    Although not required. Every time I extended my enlistment I requested the oath be re-administered. I have never seen anything indicating the oath expires upon discharge/retirement.

    The phrase "foreign and domestic" directly applies to these turncoat clowns. Just because they choose to violate their oaths doesn't mean the rest of us have to agree with their treason!
