Democrats attack NRA for disabled woman defending the 2nd Amendment

Americans across the nation have been alarmed by the willingness of some politicians to exploit the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as an excuse to deprive law-abiding citizens of their right to keep and bear arms. The governors of California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, as well as a number of mayors throughout the country, have either enacted or are attempting to invoke emergency measures which will force the closure of gun stores, and in some cases allow law enforcement to regulate the transfer of legally-owned firearms, as part of their coronavirus countermeasures.

In response, last Saturday the largest gun rights advocacy group in America, the National Rifle Association, released a short video on social media which featured a particularly vulnerable gun owner: Carletta Whiting, a black disabled survivor of both cancer and domestic violence. In the video, she makes an impassioned plea for gun owners not to allow politicians to deprive people like her, who rely primarily on firearms for their safety, of their Second Amendment rights during this time of uncertainty.

“I know from history how quickly society breaks down during a crisis,” Whiting says in the video, “and we’ve never faced anything like this before, and never is the Second Amendment more important than during public unrest.”

Addressing anti-gun politicians, Whiting then asks, “Do you really wish to leave someone like me, a disabled woman, completely unable to defend myself during one of the most uncertain times of our lives?”

But the video didn’t sit well with some Democratic lawmakers.

Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, criticized Whiting’s video, claiming that the NRA was using it to encourage gun owners to stock up on guns and ammunition while neglecting other resources. “Mainstream gun owners have left the NRA, so now they’re reduced to telling people to stockpile assault weapons, instead of food, to get ready for the coming coronavirus civil war,” Murphy said in a tweet. “So sickening.”

The NRA responded that Murphy’s criticisms were part of the ongoing war against gun owners being waged by the Democrat Party.

It should be hoped that voices like Ms. Whiting’s will prevail and Americans will stand by their time-honored love of liberty and security as embodied by the Second Amendment amidst this unprecedented challenge to our nation.

    That’s why we all need to do our part. If these douchebags on the left want to believe that. Let’s use our votes and send them packing. Thinking the way they do is just going to hurt the good people of this country. It’s all about control you take our guns and they think they can control us. Not me….

    And what other “other resources” are they neglecting? Please do not say law enforcement, because they are typically only minutes away when seconds are all that someone being accosted has.

    Leftism is a mental and spiritual derangement/dementia. It robs Democrats from even rational thought. I expect Democrats to call good, evil and to call evil, good, and they never let me down.

    This is a “common occurrence”. The “motto” of the CORRUPT DEMOCOMMUNIST “party” is “never let a crises go to waste”. This my friends is a prime example of the attempt of “government over reach” by corrupt democommunists, that THEMSELVES have “armed security” around THEM at all times , but “we royal subjects” are supposed to be disarmed “for safety”.(THEIRS) BULL EXCREMENT! Democommunists can go suck an egg.
    The second was written for OUR protection against TYRANNICAL scum like them.It has NOTHING to do with “deer hunting” or “target shooting”
    A law-abiding armed populace are considered citizens , and unarmed populace are then considered “subjects of the crown” to be CONTROLLED, used , abused, or “eliminated” as the ‘rulers” see fit.

    The Democrats will always be trying to get our guns, and should be ashamed of themselves trying to use this Coronavirus crisis to further try and destroy our 2nd. amendment. The NRA promotes safe use of guns and defending our second amendment, Period! Why shouldn’t they use this disabled woman as an example of why we need the second amendment, they are all Communists, they will never succeed in bringing Socialism to this country, they will be confronted very soon with a very large group of our residents who aren’t going to put with disgusting rhetoric!

    So now, they don’t only want to take her Second Amendment Rights Away, they want to take her First as well?
    Our Forefathers were very intuitive to put pen to paper all those years ago to stop the subversive left from destroying our nation.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!

    Senator Chris Murphy,is a lying sack of shit! He said “Mainstream gun owners have left the NRA, so now they’re reduced to telling people to stockpile assault weapons, instead of food, to get ready for the coming coronavirus civil war,” Murphy said in a tweet. “So sickening.” Gun owners are joining the NRA by the thousands, and this POS Murphy, along with his tribe of far left Lunatics, are the very reason why. Wonder if Murphy has collaborated with the Iranians, lately. His days in the Senate are numbered!

    I AGREE WITH BARBARA 100% THESE DEMOCRATS ARE NOTHING BUT UGLY, ARROGANT, LYING MORONS. THEY LIVE IN THEIR MANSIONS SURROUNDED BY DOGS, OR GUARDS, OR WHATEVER ELSE THEY HAVE. SURE IT IS OKAY FOR THEM, BUT FOR DISABLED, ELDERLY, & WOMEN, IT IS VERY SCARY TO KNOW YOU HAVE NO PROTECTION. WAY TO GO DEMS, HOPE YOU LOSE THE ENTIRE 2020 ELECTION!! SELF CENTERED AND NO COMPASSION EXCEPT FOR THEMSELVES!

    The Wicked Democrats call the NRA the National Racist Association. They believe that the NRA with guns promote murder and racism for America defending the 2nd Amendment. That is why they want Americans to be defenseless and subject to their fascist party and their criminal felon operatives coming out of jail to kill off millions of us.

    Senator, Must be you don’t like people that can defend themselves or their Homes. But you its like this , you took a OATH to uphold the Constitution. If you can not do your Duty and support the United States of America enforce its laws and rules then you don’t belong in office. In fact you don’t belong in the U.S. We do have the right to protect ourselves .

    Take my guns you are putting myself and my family at great risk
    I have stopped an violent home invasion in my own home without firing a shot. Point a 44 at someone breaking into your home at 2:00 am 99% will think tmice. For the other 1% heaven help them. Damn well better them than myself or my family. Take away that threat and god help us all. You probably won’t fully understand until you or one of your family members are beaten to death or other horrible things happen. You will probably change your mind but never the past. To damn late. Think about it

    Isn’t Sen. Murphy that took others with him to Iran, behind the President’s back to kiss their butts? When Murphy and people returned, did they stay in homes the required time? The answer is no, they are too important to let the corona virus get into them…….especially since the Iran’s that they spoke with are the ones that had the corona virus themselves. Well, it’s a shame that he doesn’t give a damn about the average person in this country, he’s for the liberals that have no idea what the great Americans before them did, they gave their blood and so many times, their lives, so the know-nothing liberals can be as they are. Our President cares. But does Murphy care about anyone beyond himself. Thank God that the Founding Fathers were smart enough to give us a Constitution as a pathway to freedom.

    The second amendment is a God given right not government permit. No matter what democrats say it is a right. Remember the last few words shall not be infringed. There are no few veterans who remember our oath to the constitution.
