National Newspaper Demands State Department Put The NRA On A ‘Designated List’

This is unbelievable. On October 3 – two days after a crazed Islamic gunman killed 10 Christian people at the ‘gun free zone’ Umpqua Community College campus – the New York Daily News called for the U.S. State Department to designate the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “TERRORIST ORGANIZATION!”

Breitbart reports:

They based this request on their belief that national security faces a greater threat from armed citizens than from “foreign terrorists,” and they singled out the NRA as the bulwark preserving citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. They suggested, “The NRA should take its rightful place on the State Department list of terrorist organizations, because its influence is more of an immediate threat to the lives of our citizens than foreign terrorists.”

To be on the State Department’s list of designated terror organizations a group has to be state-sponsored for terrorism–which the NRA is not. Moreover, they do not exist for terrorist reasons. Rather, they exist to defend the civil liberties protected by the Second Amendment. Undaunted by these things, the NYDN simply declares the NRA a “terrorist group” and suggests it falls under the State Department’s purview by being “nearly-state sponsored.”

The NYDN added, “Although the NRA is not an officially state-sponsored organization it is the supporter of the state with its massive member and lobbyist donations to our elected officials.”

They remind readers that “murdered Americans killed by…lunatic gun slingers include terrified children calling for their mothers, teachers begging for the lives of their students, students begging for not just their own lives but the lives of their classmates, moviegoers looking for escape, bystanders cheering for athletes, athletes trying to be the best they can be as the worst we ever could have imagined struck them down in cold blood.”

No mention is made that the children, teachers, and students shot in schools were shot in gun free zones by gunmen who knew their victims could not return fire. Moreover, no utterance given to the fact that the NRA was a leading voice in calling for a change in the gun free policies following the heinous attack on Sandy Hook–they wanted laws changed so teachers could quit begging for their lives and start keeping a gun close at hand with which to defend their lives and the lives of their students.

  1. I suggest they put CAIR, Valarie Jarrett, Barack Obama, John Kerry and Killary Clinton on a terrorist list. Oh, and let’s not forget Reid, Piglosi and the other Demoncrats in Congress. These people have caused more terror in our country than any private gun owner. It’s time for me to rejoin the NRA.

  2. Coincidence? ‪#‎NewYorkDailyNews‬ is calling for designation of the ‪#‎NRA‬ as a ‪#‎terrorist‬ group even as ‪#‎LorettaLynch‬ creates her ‪#‎UN‬ ‪#‎GlobalPolice‬ initiative to fight ‘‪#‎extremism‬’ in the United States. It looks as if Eric Holder’s effort toward federalized control of local law enforcement with his 16 city model program wasn’t enough for this administration….now, with Lynch, we’re making the leap from federalizing to globalizing our state and local policing. Under what rule of law do we authorize this kind of deal between the DOJ and the UN? Are different Cabinet departments now allowed to make international treaties without input, advice or consent from the people’s representatives?
