Self-defense opponents gain strength in Congress
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has suffered its "biggest election disaster in nearly 15 years" according to the NRA's own election materials. In its magazines and in member communications leading up to the 2006 midterm elections, the NRA repeatedly warned that its "pro-Second Amendment House of Representatives" was at stake.
The November 2006 pre-election edition of the NRA's magazine admonished members that, "Our recent victories and future legislative objectives are at risk this Election Day if gun owners don't rally and go to the polls to support the true friends of the Second Amendment."
Just one week before the Nov. 7 election, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre summed up the urgency of the situation in an interview with the publication "The New Gun Week." Warned LaPierre, "Gunowners need to get to the polls because the battle lines are drawn...(W)e need to erect a barricade to protect the Second Amendment from the handgun control crowd... They want to unleash the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) on every law-abiding gunowner in America."
In addition to the House turnover, NRA-backed Senate candidates also lost in key races, including Rick Santorum (R- Pa.), Jim Talent (R-Mo.), Mike Bouchard (R-Mich.), and Michael Steele (R-Md.). In the two Senate races still too close to call, the NRA backed Republicans George Allen in Virginia and Conrad Burns in Montana.

The NRA members have nobody to blame but themselves. They are the ones who lobbied to elect the world elite's "useful idiot". Now that he has gutted the Constitution, the gun confiscations can now proceed. The Zionist Occupied Government knows EXACTLY what they are doing. Just like the JEWISH President of the NRA knows... It's a FALSE opposition! -RMac
