Dana Loesch: “NRA biggest defender of free speech” & crucial UPDATE

MUST READ UPDATE: 97-year-old former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens advocates repealing the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

With Second Amendment restrictionists maligning our constitutional rights and bellowing that guns are the culprits in mass shootings perpetrated by evil or mentality ill assassins, we bring you a voice of sanity.

“The NRA has been the biggest defender of free speech. I find it interesting that those individuals who simultaneously preach about free speech want to silence the speech of the millions of people who make up NRA membership.” –Dana Loesch

The NRA couldn’t have a more impassioned, articulate than Dana Loesch. Listening to her is always enlightening.

This linked video is when most of us first met Dana Loesch, in her national NRA role. It was an unforgettable introduction.

A few fast facts you might not have known:

Before seeing the light, Dana Loesch was once a registered Democrat, who worked on Bill Clinton’s second-term campaign. She and her music producer husband Chris Loesch, a Republican who influenced her politically and now manages her busy schedule, jointly home-school their two sons. An award winning investigative reporter, she has co-founded a tea party, worked as a radio talk show host and was appointed editor-in-chief for Big Journalism, part of the Breitbart network of conservative media. They are devout Christians. Although she endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2016 presidential primary, after President Trump’s election, she became a self described “passionate defender” of his presidency.

NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Wayne LaPierre, explains the NRA’s position on raising the age (video) for purchasers of firearms.

It was bound to happen. In a New York Times op-ed published today, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a well concealed RINO appointed to the high court by Pres. Gerald Ford, urges the repeal of the Second Amendment. Born into privilege in 1920, Stevens was previously appointed to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by Pres. Richard Nixon.

His bizarre lack of regard for our Constitution could be laid off to the fact that Stevens is 97-years-old. We can reasonably assume a surrogate wrote this commentary. Regardless of its origins, it is a disgraceful effort to undermine our nation‘s foundational underpinnings.

Stevens was 90 years of age when he retired. Rather than repealing the Second Amendment, Americans should revisit the wisdom of lifetime appointments for Supreme Court Justices. Call your members of congress.

This is what we’re up against.  Be vigilant, anJOIN the NRA today. We have few other protectors of our rights.

    Thank you, Seeing Red AZ. This is crucial information.

    We are at a crossroads in our nation’s history that our Founders could never, in their worst nightmares could have envisioned. Under- educated teens (as you well identified them recently) who have no understanding of our history and U.S. Constitution, are now marching and attempting to set national policy. The liberal educrats who have guided them since kindergarten, are rejoicing.

  2. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Over the years, it’s become obvious that Republican presidents often appoint liberals to the Supreme Court. How disappointing have Sandra O’Connor (Reagan appointee) and John Roberts (GW Bush) turned out to be! Justice Kennedy, who like O’Connor, delighted in being the “swing vote,” frequently swinging to the left, was also appointed by Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a conservative who was hoodwinked when it came to appointing justices, getting bad advice or relying on family contacts as with the appointment of O’Connor. Nancy Reagan’s parents were good friends with the O’Connors and the Reagan’s often dined with them at the Biltmore Estates home of Nancy’s parents when they visited Phoenix.

    The New York Times appears to be so gleeful at securing this op-ed, it remains available …at least for now. This massive encroachment on our Constitution makes my blood run cold.

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    President Gerald Ford successfully nominated Stevens to the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy caused by the retirement of Justice William O. Douglas. He became the senior Associate Justice after the retirement of Harry Blackmun in 1994. Stevens retired during the administration of President Barack Obama, and was succeeded by Justice Elena Kagan.

    Another case where a Republican president nominated someone who had liberal tendencies. Trump did an excellent job with Neil Gorsuch. He appears to be a conservative like Antonin Scalia.

    • Villanova says:

      I believe Justice Neil Gorsuch will be the shining star in Trump’s crown. Gorsuch clerked for Justice Scalia and they were also friends who enjoyed outdoor pursuits together.

    • Trevor says:

      This is probably another reason why Ford was challenged by Reagan and also people don’t know this but Mitch McConnell was very anti Reagan in 76 he supported Ford who he worked for just shows you who Mitch truly is.

    Joseph Bickley, Sr.,

    Thank you for the edit suggestions. They are all made as per your recommendations. We appreciate your continued vigilance.

    You are also correct in your observation that we wanted to get this post up in a timely manner, though that doesn’t excuse inattention to capitalization and punctuation details.

  6. Longtime GOP PC says:

    I just used the link provided here to sign up for two five-year memberships with the NRA. I was a long time member previously, but quit when they had their national convention here in Phoenix and honored John McCain with presenting the keynote address. I was there and walked out with quite a few others. McCain has never been an advocate for Second Amendment rights, always bonded to the fallacy of what he called “gun show loopholes.”

    Today it’s become an undeniable fact that the NRA, our most articulate gun rights organization, needs the support of ALL constitutional conservatives. McCain is irrelevant at this point. My wife and I both rejoined the NRA using the link provided by Seeing Red AZ. It was a snap!! Join us. It feels good!!

    I saw a movie about a population that gave up its guns. “Schindler’s List” Steven Spielberg made the movie. He gave $500,000 to this past weekend’s “March for our Lives.” How does he square that in his mind?

    • Patriot Dad says:

      The people depicted in Schindler’s List didn’t willingly give up their guns. The Nazi’s first went door to door with a non-threatening registration drive. Later there was no problem when they came for confiscation. They already had their road map of gun owners.

      As to Spielberg, I once read he felt compelled to tell the story of the atrocities committed against millions of Eastern European Jews by Germans, which was commendable. He educated countless movie goers about the inhumanity of those depraved mass murderers. But his liberalism explains his funding the anti-gun teen marchers, who have no idea what the result of gun confiscation actually leads to. They’ve been taught radical leftist propaganda by their far left public school unionist teachers all of their young lives.

      How refreshing it is to read that Dana and Chris Loesch’s kids are home schooled.

    Al Sharpton’s half-brother charged in murder after marching against guns

    In 2013, Glasgow (Sharpton’s half-brother) teamed with Sharpton to protest the murder of Trayvon Martin in Florida. He has also led protests against police violence.

    I wonder what percentage of the “march” was comprised of people like this.

    I would rejoin the NRA if I could. Need a job first.
