You know, the American people, I know one thing about them, they value their freedom. And when the reality of the consequences of what the politicians in this town and the media and the elites want to do to their second amendment rights and take them away, I think they’ll do what they’ve done historically. They’ll defend the freedom.
Because the American public knows that the scene of the crime, it’s a criminal victim, all these politicians aren’t there. And they see people like Mayor Bloomberg, New York City, you know the way it works up there? If you’re rich and you’re famous, you your permit. If you’re a 300 hitter with The Mets, you get a permit. If you’re a celebrity, you get a permit. If you’re a big developer, you get a permit. If you’re a Wall Street executive, you get a permit.
If you’re one of the mayor’s buddies, you get your permit. If you’re the guy in the box out there at the scene of the crime, most in need of the protection, you’re flat out of luck. What the N.R.A.’s about, we’re about the average guy. We’re about the non-celebrity, the non-300 hitter. We’re about non-developer.
And the average guy in the country values his freedom, doesn’t believe the fact he can own a gun is part of the problem, and doesn’t like the media and all these high profile politicians blaming him, and every time a tragedy–
