If you missed Hannity last night, I highlighted an outrageous quote by none other than former Obama advisor David Axelrod. Axelrod, speaking on the network extension on the Obama press office (MSNBC), basically said that the NRA is trading their jobs for the lives on young Americans.
“I come from the city of Chicago. We know we have had a violence problem there. A lot of it has to do with straw buyers arming street gangs. There is no doubt and every law enforcement person will tell you that stronger trafficking laws combined with universal background checks would make a real difference. People are afraid of the NRA and they're trading their jobs for young lives in places like Chicago. And it is a terrible blight. You know, hopefully people will step up and do the right thing. It is extraordinary to have all the country on one side and the Congress on the other.”
That statement was made only after Axelrod blamed the NRA for the soaring crime in Chicago.
Some education for Mr. Axelrod: The NRA is the single largest group in America that teaches gun safety. I don't see many liberal groups (if any) teaching law-abiding Americans about gun safety. I also don't see criminals or gang members too concerned about gun laws. That's not the fault of the NRA.
