Oregon Democrat confirms amnesty danger to gun rights

Posted: February 24, 2015 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized

Calling it the “civil rights battle” for millennials that will decide who controls the the country for the next three decades, Democrat Rep. Kurt Schrader of Oregon says immigration “will decide who is in charge of this country for the next 20 or 30 years,” the Portland Tribune reported Monday. Schraeder’s observation highlights a contention made by Gun Owners of America that amnesty is a threat to the right to keep and bear arms. That position has so far been avoided by other national gun rights groups which refuse to acknowledge the issue, or to score political ratings and endorsements accordingly.

That avoidance is in spite of the fact that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has stated illegal aliens have “earned the right to be citizens. It’s in spite of all credible polling showing the foreigners to be overwhelmingly Democrat and anti-gun in their sympathies.

It’s also in spite of almost daily revelations corroborating the increasing danger, and not just from the “illegal” side of the equation. Just within the past day, we’ve learned that Muslim immigration is outpacing that from Mexico and Central America, that 40 percent of New Yorkers are now foreign-born and half the residents of New York City speak a language other than English at home. We’ve also seen that the Border Patrol has been ordered to curtail deportations. Both legal and illegal immigration are being exploited by cheap labor Republicans and “earned citizenship” Democrats, both counting on the directed “cultural terraforming” to advance globalist interests and “fundamentally transform” the country.

Some gun rights advocates still offer excuses for NRA and other groups ignoring this, saying it’s not part of the “single issue.” How they arrive at that conclusion, ignoring the ultimate change in the electorate by adding millions of anti-gun voters to the rolls in coming years, is never explained, especially in light of how a “pathway to citizenship” will reverse legislative gains and assure judicial appointments are confirmed by the anti-gun majority that will result. It also contradicts NRA head Wayne LaPierre, who declared “all freedoms are connected,” but then clammed up on threats to freedom being connected, too.

Besides, in addition to that “single issue,” NRA’s bylaws, which are not optional, require directors and paid staff to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States [and] promote public safety, law and order, and the national defense.” And we’ve seen NRA weigh in before on “tangential” issues, such as when it quite properly joined with ACLU in opposing so called “campaign finance reform” due to intolerable restrictions on the FIRST Amendment and the negative impact that would have on elections.

Gun rights leaders — and that includes bloggers — continue to ignore this issue at the peril of those who hold them in that regard. Gun owners continue to let them get away with that at their own peril. And Democrats, from Kurt Schrader of Oregon, all the way up to Barack Obama, as well as the establishment GOP and moneyed interests buying influence in both parties, are counting on the continued denial.
