SAF TO JEH JOHNSON: ‘GUN OWNERSHIP IS PART OF HOMELAND SECURITY’

BELLEVUE, WA – Contrary to what Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Tuesday that gun control is a “critical element” of protecting the nation against terrorists, the Second Amendment Foundation today said the right to keep and bear arms is this country’s original homeland security, and he needs to remember that.

“The threat we face today from terrorism is exactly why the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Every American has the right to self-defense, and for Johnson to contend that infringing on that right is the way to keep the country safe is simply preposterous.”

Johnson was on CBS television, at which time he stated, “We have to face the fact that meaningful gun control has to be a part of homeland security.”

In response, Gottlieb observed, “What we really need to do is maximize the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their right to bear arms. Nothing deters terrorists as well as good people fighting back. Gun-free zone designations certainly haven’t stopped the atrocities in Paris, San Bernardino and Orlando. Restrictive concealed carry laws that prevent honest citizens from having the tools they need for self-defense have turned people into victims.

“Jeh Johnson has this one completely backwards,” he continued. “Nobody wants terrorists or even common street criminals to have guns. But laws that penalize honest Americans, and that ban certain types of firearms, will not prevent bad people from committing mayhem.

“The conversation should not be about firearms, but fanatics,” Gottlieb stated. “But Johnson’s boss, Barack Obama, can’t even bring himself to acknowledge who and what the enemy is, without having a temper tantrum on live television.

“Guns, and gun owners, have protected our shores for more than two centuries,” he concluded. “Barack Obama and Jeh Johnson would have us believe that eviscerating the Second Amendment will somehow discourage terrorists from attacking us. That’s not just dishonest, it is delusional.”

 

 

President Obama Calls for Gun Control after Orlando Terrorist Attack

In remarks on Sunday and Monday, President Obama acknowledged that the tragic weekend attack on the nightclub in Orlando was a terrorist act — and, as he did after the San Bernardino terrorist attack in late 2015, he called for more restrictions on popular semi-automatic rifles.

First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of this horrific attack. The brave law enforcement officers who brought this attack to a halt deserve our thanks and great respect. As this is being written, additional information is coming to light regarding the history and actions of the perpetrator. Our industry abhors the use of firearms in any and all forms of criminal violence. Given the scale of the vicious assault and the toll it took, there likely will be legislative and regulatory proposals that shift the focus from the foreign and home-grown terrorist threats our nation faces to gun control measures that will do nothing to enhance public safety. NSSF will keep you apprised of developments.

White House to GOP: Worry about Gun Control

The White House said Monday that Republicans concerned about Syrian refugees waging terrorist attacks in the U.S. should focus their energy instead on banning guns sales to people on the government’s terrorist watch list.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said lawmakers’ failure to stop suspected terrorists from purchasing guns in the U.S. “is a pretty clear indication that Republicans in Congress are more interested in playing politics, and more scared of the NRA, than they are concerned about doing the right thing for our national security.”

A study by the Government Accountability Office in March found that people on the FBI’s consolidated Terrorist Watchlist successfully passed the background check required to purchase firearms more than 90 percent of the time, with more than 2,043 approvals between 2004 and 2014.

Speaker Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, hasn’t said whether he favors legislation that would prevent people on the watchlist from purchasing firearms.

Mr. Earnest said a move in Congress to block the president’s plan to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. “is not likely to do much to improve the national security of the United States.” He said people applying for entry to the U.S. “will be subjected to a process of spending two years convincing national security officials that they don’t have links to terrorism.”
