ISRA: The Gun Control Movement Is Talking -- But Nobody Is Listening

CHICAGO, Oct. 24 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):

For the second time in less than a week, the world-wide gun control movement has suffered a serious setback in its campaign to disarm law-abiding citizens. Late last week, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed legislation to derail the gun control movement's attempts to litigate firearm manufacturers into bankruptcy. That victory for freedom-loving people was made all the sweeter on Sunday when Brazilian voters turned back a referendum to ban private firearm ownership by nearly a 2 to 1 margin.

The Brazilian referendum was carefully crafted to serve as a test bed for similar efforts planned for other nations where citizens are allowed to own firearms. Gun control leaders in the United States hoped that a victory in Brazil would encourage Americans to give up their freedoms as well. However, Sunday's trouncing of the Brazilian gun-grab referendum should shatter the gun control movement's hopes for world-wide civilian disarmament.

Re: ISRA: The Gun Control Movement Is Talking -- But Nobody

I love the line about Brazilians voting their right to defend themselves away. Why would that encourage Americans to do the same? This is further evidence that the gun control movement lacks any sense and needs to pull their collective head out of their :shock: .
