The gun owners of America, affiliated with NRA or not, do not trust their own government. To wit: there are currently “41 Right-to-Carry states, with 49 states offering some avenue for armed self-defense outside the home.”
The slaughter of innocents in Newton, Connecticut has served to illustrate the absolute necessity of having armed personnel on all school campuses. The Aurora killings have exposed the absurdity behind “gun free zones” in commercial businesses.
Instead of bringing comfort to the stricken, they are scavenging the bodies of those babies like opportunistic animals looking for politically expedient carrion upon which to fatten their ambitions and further their agendas. The government/media complex has managed to turn a small-town tragedy into a national obscenity.
