You can file this under, “You might be a bunch of un-American, dimwitted liberals if…” The Michael Bloomberg anti-gun organization known as Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense have now set their sights on comedian Jeff Foxworthy and Country music star Alan Jackson because they agreed to appear at the 2015 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibitions in Nashville on April 11.
Moms Demand Action took to their Facebook to blast these two men.
Alan Jackson and Jeff Foxworthy agreed to open this year’s NRA convention after the NRA pushed to arm convicted criminals, blocked federal gun violence research, and board members promoted armed insurrection.
Let’s educate these celebrities on the dangerous and irresponsible policies the gun lobby supports.
Wait. Dangerous? Irresponsible? Seriously?
Well, the group displayed a few of its tweets in which they claim the NRA is out to arm terrorists, fight background checks, arm criminals, scare people and promote armed insurrection.
While the truth is that the history of the NRA has been riddled with compromise and following the Sandy Hook incident I stood against their “cop in every school” push, which was nothing more than big government, the issues raised by Moms Demand Action are pretty twisted to say the least.
The desire for no background checks resides in the fact that a person’s right to defend themselves is a natural right granted by God and a duty that all men should adhere to. It doesn’t require a background check and that does not then mean the NRA is fighting to arm criminals or terrorists. It means they are fighting for the ability of Americans to arm themselves against terrorists, criminals and a tyrannical government or foreign invaders.
As for blocking federal gun violence research goes, well, what business does the federal government have in spending American tax dollars on a study that it has been given no authority to address? Seems logical to me.
Considering the claim that Don Young called for armed insurrection against the federal government is ridiculous. However, he did echo the words of Thomas Jefferson from the Declaration of Independence writing:
Let it be known that we, the people of Alaska, stand in recognition of the true principle that whenever a government abandons the purpose for which we have created it and even becomes hostile towards that which it was once a defender of, it is no longer a fit steward of the political power that is inherent in the people and lent to this government with strict conditions. These conditions are clearly defined in the United States Constitution and understood by the common man.
Furthermore, to the extent that our government violates these conditions, they nullify their own authority, at which point it is our right and duty, not as subjects but as sovereign Americans, to entrust this power to new stewards who will not depart from the laws we have given them.
This being the case, let it be known that should our government seek to further tax, restrict or register firearms or otherwise impose on the right that shall not be infringed, thus impairing our ability to exercise the God-given right to self-defense which precedes all human legislation and is superior to it, that the duty of us good and faithful people will not be to obey them but to alter or abolish them and institute new government laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to us shall seem most likely to effect our safety and happiness.
That sounds almost identical to Jefferson’s words, doesn’t it?
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
So, who are the real traitors in this matter? Who are the ones actually promoting insurrection? Is it those who are following in the footsteps of those who fought for America’s Independence or those who have been bought and paid for by Communist Michael Bloomberg, who attack the Second Amendment at every turn, including using public indecency, disturbing the peace and going after American businesses? Just look at Shannon Watts if you have any doubt.
The Constitution says that the very militia mentioned in the Second Amendment is to put down such insurrectionists as Michael Bloomberg, Shannon Watts and Moms Demanding Action for they are striking at the very Foundations of freedom.
The NRA proudly promoted the dynamic duo for its April event in a post at the NRA’s Annual Meeting website.
There are but few acts that can follow last year’s remarkable performance by Alabama, but country music legend Alan Jackson is certainly one. As an artist, he’s sold over 60-million albums and gleaned every award possible; as a songwriter he’s rivaled only by the likes of Lennon and McCartney with over 20 of his own hits reaching No. 1; and as an entertainer he’s a must-see—but come out and see for yourself. Classic hits such as “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” speak of good times and country living amid this, Jackson’s 25th anniversary “Keepin’ It Country” tour.
And if you feel Jackson alone isn’t worthy of your hard-earned ticket, perhaps a performance by the king of country comedy is. You know Jeff Foxworthy, and you might be a redneck if you miss out on this show. Finally, rising country artist Jon Pardi, who’s known for his live performances, rounds out an already epic ticket.
To be clear, this is THE marquee event and culmination of the 144th NRA Annual Meetings in Nashville, and there can be no better way to end it than with a country beat and a baritone voice from one of Nashville’s finest, Alan Jackson.
One thing is for sure, all Moms Demanding Action is doing is ticking more red-blooded Americans off and some will buy the tickets to see Foxworthy and Jackson to spite the communist organization.
After all, you may be a communist if all you eat, breathe and sleep is gun confiscation.
