Chris Cox: The NRA Will Fight Without Apology To Protect The Rights Of Law-Abiding Americans

posted on June 18, 2016

NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox delivered a blistering repudiation to attacks on NRA members by media and politicians, who accuse us of making it easier for terrorists to obtain firearms.

Cox set the record straight: “The NRA believes that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms, period. Anyone on a terror watch list who attempts to purchase a gun should be thoroughly investigated by the FBI.” If evidence of terrorist activity is uncovered, the sale should be blocked and the suspect arrested.

However, current grandstanding tactics by anti-gunners to deny Americans their right to due process and “shame you into surrendering your freedoms” will be vigorously opposed. Speaking of efforts by President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to distract us from their failure to keep us safe, Cox said. “When we’re attacked, do they blame the jihadists who kill innocent Americans? No, they blame you and your freedoms.”
