Sounds as though this need not be a very long meeting. The NRA will no doubt
remind the Gov of its approach to everything ("more guns=good, anything
else=bad") but what can they do? Threaten him with competition from the
Right? Threaten to endorse a gun-toting Democrat to be named later? Both seem
unlikely given the state's one-party status. If the NRA wants to talk to
Herbert, they should send someone to SLC.
This will be very interesting to watch. First, I admire Herbert's courage
in making that veto and standing up strong against the pro-gun nut cases.I hope that he will now find the courage to stand strong against the
pressures from the NRA and continue to use good sense when it comes to holding
fast on this.I am NOT anti-gun or anti Second Amendment. But I AM
very much in favor of a little good sense. I wore gun to work for several years
and enjoyed hunting and target shooting when I was younger, so don't start
calling me anti-gun. Call me pro-sensible controls on deadly weapons.
AP/ September 9, 2013Iowa law allows gun permits for the blindAwe, the lack of intelligence in gun fanatics knows no bounds, perhaps the NRA
wants to make sure the blind can shoot at noises in Utah too.
They'll probably try to talk him into saying he want's to limit gun
ownership in some way just to throw gasoline on the gun hoarding. Great for
business. I'd be surprised if the NRA doesn't support a lot of
They should include in the next round of pro gun legislation allowing dueling
with guns in the street, before 10:00 PM.
Re: ". . . don't start calling me anti-gun. Call me pro-sensible
controls on deadly weapons."That's just liberal newspeak
for, "I'm anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment."
Gov. Herbert has been pretty good on gun rights, and sees the difference between
the need to control criminal actions and the knee-jerk anti gun hysteria pushed
by liberal bent on restricting rights (such as Mayor Becker and especially Salt
Lake Police Chief "California" Burbank!)It should be a good
meeting, and I hope that the NRA can convince Gov. Herbert that his veto of
"Constitutional Carry" was a mistake and that signing would not have
endangered anyone or limited the ability to prosecute our (too numerous)
criminals. "It's not the guns, it's the
If you are not a member or supporter of the NRA you will have trouble figuring
out their objectives and what they contribute to gun safety and crime
prevention. Most of the anti gunners make their comments and judgments on second
hand information from non gun owners and the liberal media. The NRA
has it's place and it is primarily with gun owners and personal and public
safety for every citizen. A trained and informed gun owner backed up by NRA
training is a citizen who will be more responsible for the safe handling of his
weapons and the safety of those around him. Wayne LaPierre does a great job in
promoting gun safety, ownership, and doing the job he is hired to do, run the
NRA and keep it on track as the No.1 organization which promotes gun safety,
crime prevention, and law enforcement for gun owners and the general public. Be
thankful for his long tenure with the NRA and the contribution he makes.
