The attackers of the NRA and our second amendment rights have found a new voice..and guess what voice they chose to use? That’s right, the voice of children.
Now, isn’t that just a tad bit ironic considering this group is the SAME mouthpiece for abortion and the right to KILL children? Janet Morana of the Daily Caller has broken down some figures for us showing just who is REALLY buying the most influence. After all, it is the rally call of the freedom haters: Kill the NRA, they buy influence!! You might be interested in taking a look at these.
Since Stephen Paddock murdered 58 people and injured hundreds in Las Vegas last Saturday night, Democrats and the mainstream media have worked themselves up into a predictable lather about guns, gun control and the influence of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
The Washington Post’s Aaron Williams put together a graphic showing how the NRA has contributed $4.2 million to current members of Congress, primarily Republicans, since 1998. But then The Federalist’s Sean Davis came up with some very different numbers:
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion seller and recipient of half a billion dollars in taxpayer funding every year, spent $38 million on the 2016 election alone.
- The ten worst mass shootings in the United States have claimed the lives of 265 people since 1984.
- Since 1973, some 60 million children have been killed before their due dates..The numbers of families missing members is in the tens of millions. The shock waves of abortion are felt all over our country. Now consider the lives lost, the potential wasted, thanks to legalized abortion.
And yet Planned Parenthood continues on, opening mega killing centers in our cities, reaching into its deep pockets to fight every abortion restriction passed on the state or federal level, collecting $1.5 million in tax money every single day.
We can’t pretend mass shootings are not a problem for our nation, but neither should we continue to overlook an organization that takes the lives of more than 320,000 human beings a year and pays lawmakers to look the other way.
I can hear some people now, complaining that we’re comparing apples to oranges, and that the Second Amendment, which spells out the right of private citizens to bear arms, is not nearly as important as the 14th Amendment, which seven white men in 1973 interpreted to mean that women can legally kill their own unborn children right up until the day they are born. The right to privacy is paramount, more important than the right to life, ruled the misguided Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
Those of us in the pro-life movement are often told that Roe v. Wade is “settled law” – despite not actually being a law — and we should just fold up our tents and go home. Yet today, there are calls for the Second Amendment – adopted in 1791 and certainly settled from a historical perspective – to be repealed.
Has the NRA’s $4.2 million bought some influence over the last 19 years? Certainly. But it pales in comparison to the influence Planned Parenthood’s blood money has purchased.
