Begin by turning off spigot of unable-to-be-vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring countries
Disarming Americans is tough work. The U.S. Senate spent Monday evening trying to enact controls on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens in response to the most recent ISIS inspired massacre in Orlando.
Political shenanigans were the order of the day in an effort to constrain law-abiding citizens as those elected to represent us pursue their bizarre scheme ostensibly to “prevent further mass shootings.” Heritage Foundation offers a far superior plan on how to prevent another domestic terror attack: “Implement counter terrorism policies.”
The executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA), Chris W. Cox, summed up the farcical maneuvering with these words:
“Today, the American people witnessed an embarrassing display in the United States Senate. President Obama and his allies proved they are more interested in playing politics than addressing their failure to keep Americans safe from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
We all agree that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms. We should all agree that law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a secret government list should not be denied their constitutional right to due process. These are not mutually exclusive ideas. It is shocking that the safety of the American people is taking a backseat to political theatre.”

Erich Pratt. Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, sent this letter to Senators, which included a survey of over 15,000 law-enforcement personnel illustrating that our first responders believe that armed civilians, not gun control, will make Americans safer.
