Second Amendment

Marion P. Hammer: NRA protects the 2nd amendment and freedom

by Marion P. Hammer, Sun Sentinel  |  published on January 8, 2013

In the latest in a long career of hate mongering, Martin Dyckman, a retired associate editor of the Tampa Bay Times, wrote yet another nasty opinion editorial, this time in the Sun Sentinel, attacking the National Rifle Association. (NRA once had principles, now they just push anarchy, Jan. 2.)

For decades, Dyckman has railed against guns, gun owners, the NRA, and sometimes me personally, often inventing facts in an effort to score political points.

He began his most recent rant by chanting like a school-yard bully, “Hey, hey, NRA, how many kids will we kill today?”

Along with his childish name-calling and finger-pointing, he launched into a diatribe, claiming that, “Not so many years ago, the NRA was a moderate force … The NRA could be reasonable with respect to regulation of weapons … But the moderate leadership was overthrown, likely with significant help from arms manufacturers and sellers — the merchants of death.”

He clearly shows how little he really knows about NRA. Here’s what NRA-haters like him will never understand: The NRA never has been, and never will be, “moderate” in its defense of the Second Amendment and freedom in America.

The NRA was formed to protect America’s freedoms, starting with our earliest mission of providing firearms training for those who might be called to serve our country and continuing with our training programs today, which teach private citizens and law enforcement officers alike to defend themselves and their communities.
