NRA Speech: (our) Hit Parade Of Quotes

Semi-Automatic Hearts Hit Parade from this both ridiculed and lauded speech that took guts to make, knowing that elements on both sides would criticize and misrepresent it, no matter what was said. Proof is that, indeed, this has been happening since it was made on Friday. Enemies foreign and domestic are plentiful, and must be stood up to manfully as laid down by the founding fathers in the 2nd most important right, the 2nd Amendment. Ask again how restrictions on the sane will alter the behavior of the criminally insane?...(S9)
The only way to answer that question is to face up to the truth.
Politicians pass laws for Gun-Free School Zones. They issue press
releases bragging about them. They post signs advertising them.
And in so doing, they tell every insane killer in America that schools
are their safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk...
The truth is that our society is populated by an unknown number of
genuine monsters — people so deranged, so evil, so possessed by
voices and driven by demons that no sane person can possibly ever
comprehend them. They walk among us every day...
Rather than face their own moral failings, the media demonize lawful gun owners, amplify their cries for more laws and fill the national debate with misinformation and dishonest

The media call semi-automatic firearms "machine guns" — they claim
these civilian semi-automatic firearms are used by the military, and
they tell us that the .223 round is one of the most powerful rifle
... when all of these claims are factually untrue...

Worse, they perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban
— or one more law imposed on peaceful, lawful people — will protect
us where 20,000 others have failed...

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun...
Now, I can imagine the shocking headlines you'll print tomorrow
morning: "More guns," you'll claim, "are the NRA's answer to
everything!" Your implication will be that guns are evil
and have no
place in society, much less in our schools.
But since when did the
word "gun" automatically become a bad word?...
when you hear the glass breaking in your living room at 3 a.m. and call 911, you won't be able to pray hard
enough for a gun in the hands of a good guy to get there fast enough to protect you...

five years ago, after the Virginia Tech tragedy, when I said
we should put armed security in every school, the media called me

Is the press and political class here in Washington so consumed by
fear and hatred of the NRA and America’s gun owners
that you're
willing to accept a world where real resistance to evil monsters
is a
lone, unarmed school principal left to surrender her life to shield the
children in her care? No one — regardless of personal political
prejudice — has the right to impose that sacrifice..
We can't wait for the next unspeakable crime to happen before we act.
We can't lose precious time debating legislation that won’t work...
