Special Forces Association Rejects Calls For Gun Control

The Special Forces Association recently made its stance on gun control perfectly clear: Thanks, but no thanks. The national organization—which is comprised of members who once served in the U.S. Special Forces— offered a response to anti-gun advocacy from retired Army generals David Petraeus and Stanley McChrystal. Both recently teamed up with gun-control proponent Mark Kelly to form the so-called “Veterans Coalition for Common Sense.”

The Special Forces Association drew up a membership resolution during its annual convention last Saturday. Containing more common sense than anything you’ll hear from Petraeus’ and McChrystal’s group, the resolution confirms support of the “Constitution and all of its amendments, realizing that only the existence of the Second Amendment guarantees the freedom of the American people and that the Bill of Rights was written to delineate and restrict the power of government and not to restrict the powers and rights of the people or states.”
