Apparently Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) is inserting himself into the Mary McFate controversy.
Although the NRA and I certainly have had our disagreements over the years, I hope that we can agree that the gun violence prevention debate should be based upon an open and honest exchange of ideas, not on underhanded tactics.
I question whether the Senator really understands what he’s asking for here.Â There’s been very little that’s honest about gun control organizations, which is why they don’t want to have an “open an honest” conversation about the matter.Â Otherwise how can they take bloggers out of context, mislead the public about the nature of firearms, firearms owners, the NRA, and the second amendment. Would you like to have an open and honest discussion in public about the nature of the “Terrorist Watch List” that you want use to deny Americans fundamental rights?
We’re completely willing to have an open and honest exchange of ideas, Senator.Â Are you sure your allies in the gun control movement are willing to do that?
