A recent analysis has exposed liberals as seeing gun owners as "domestic security threats" that need to be dealt with.
From The Daily Caller:
A Democratic congresswoman declared the National Rifle Association and conservative commentator Dana Loesch “domestic security threats” Thursday night.
“I’m just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that,” New York Rep. Kathleen Rice tweeted out.
It was a bold statement to make about a group that claims millions of Americans as members. Are all these citizens a threat to the country because they like gun rights? It appears this Democrat seems to think so.
Rice was likely claiming a security threat over the NRA’s recent ad featuring Loesch criticizing The New York Times. Several journalists and leftists considered the ad as tantamount to a threat of violence against the press — one of whom was Rep. Rice.
It’s not uncommon for liberals to wildly claim law-abiding gun owners are a threat to America. It’s one of the core planks of the gun control agenda that the public supposedly can’t trust those gun nuts. They could turn out to be the next Timothy McVeigh, and, as liberals fervently believe, right-wing terrorists are a far bigger threat than Islamic radicals.
These are the lines repeated ad nauseam by liberal supporters of gun control in order to sow distrust for gun owners and the groups that represent their rights. Any time a shooting occurs and the triggerman was not a Muslim radical, the NRA is always blamed first for the carnage.
Rice’s attack is a little different, however. It wasn’t uttered in response to a mass shooting or some new gun restriction the NRA opposes. It was made over a video the Second Amendment rights group made about the media.
The ad, presented by Loesch, warns The New York Times that gun advocates are “coming for you.” “”Consider this a shot across your proverbial bow,” the conservative commentator dramatically says. “We’re going to fisk The New York Times and find out just what deep rich means to this old gray hag.”
Over-the-top, for sure. A call for violence? You’d have to be blinded by ideology to think so.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of folks like Rep. Rice who fall into that category and construed it as a violent threat.
