The Hypocrisy Of The Anti-Gun Elite

The elites in this country who don’t want you to own a firearm have no reservations about trusting their own safety to an armed security retinue. The wealthy and powerful will always be protected, but only the Second Amendment can protect the poor and vulnerable.

In a video that aired recently on NRA News, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox blasted the hypocrisy of those who want a monopoly on the right to armed self-defense. “The thought of average people owning firearms makes them uncomfortable,” Cox said. “They don’t like how the men and women who build their office buildings, vacation homes and luxury cars—who mop their floors, clean their clothes and serve their dinner—have access to the same level of protection as their armed security guards.” 

Cox followed this broadside against the anti-gun elites by appearing on a town hall panel at CPAC titled “Thank Goodness For Guns In America.” The event was intended as a counterweight to President Barack Obama’s skewed CNN anti-gun cheerleading session. Cox explained why the NRA declined to participate in the former “town hall,” in which they were told, “You can come, you can have one pre-screened question and no rebuttal.” He issued a defiant message from the NRA and gun owners across America: “We’re not scared of anybody; we’re certainly not scared of this president.” 

In an interview on “Cam & Co.,” Cox elaborated on the challenge facing defenders of freedom in this election. “There’s times throughout American history where we’re called on as citizens to step up and engage to save this country, and we’re fighting right now for the soul of our country,” he said. “And I believe that what we do between now and Election Day is going to determine the outcome.” 

The next year will see a crucial battle fought for the future of American freedom. The Second Amendment isn’t about protecting the wealthy, hypocritical elites—it’s here for the common people. Together we have an obligation to fight to keep it intact.
