No, the NRA doesn’t exactly announce that the violent nutcase in the DC pizza place has inspired them to increase their insane power-mad drive to put guns and gun owners absolutely everywhere.
But here’s today’s Daily News piece. Read it and scream. Loudly:
NRA targeting gun-right limits
FIREARMS enthusiasts who embraced Donald Trump’s campaign and his full-throated support of the Second Amendment are expecting a sweeping expansion of gun rights under his administration and a Congress firmly in Republican hands. Among their priorities: eliminating gun-free zones at schools, reducing requirements for background checks and ensuring that concealed-carry handgun permits from one state are recognized everywhere in the U.S.
“This is our historic moment to go on offense and to defeat the forces that have aligned against our freedom once and for all,” Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association, said in a video after the Nov. 8 election.
One of the NRA’s paramount goals is getting Congress to pass a law requiring all states to recognize concealed-carry handgun permits issued by any other state. AP GETTY; AP; REUTERS
