Gun Owners of America Endorses Sharron Angle; NRA will endorse Harry Reid?!?!?

On April 14, the conservative PAC “Gun Owners of America” endorsed Sharron Angle ( See for the press release.

Quoting from the release: 

“Sharron Angle is just the kind of “change” Washington needs right now. Over her eight years in the Nevada legislature, Sharron stood 100% in favor of the Second Amendment (emphasis mine) and was a steadfast leader in protecting the constitutional liberties of all Nevadans.”

Conversely, the NRA will probably endorse Harry Reid?!!?!?…because, as they state, “the NRA is a single issue organization and that when our ratings and endorsements are announced, they are based solely on a candidate’s support for, or opposition to, our Second Amendment rights” (see:  

Is Harry Reid really Second Amendment-friendly?

Again quoting from the GOA press release: 

“Harry Reid, on the other hand, is trampling all over the Constitution. In addition to pushing the massive, anti-gun Obamacare bill through the Senate, Reid has helped to secure the confirmations of President Obama’s left-wing radical nominees to the highest positions of power (emphasis mine).

For instance, Sen. Reid voted to confirm Eric Holder to the position of Attorney General. Holder was the point man for gun control initiatives such as the Brady bill and the semi-auto ban under President Clinton.

Almost immediately after his confirmation, Holder called for the reinstatement of the Clinton gun ban. Holder also coauthored an amicus brief to the Supreme Court arguing in favor of the complete gun ban in the District of Columbia.

Sen. Reid secured the confirmation of Cass Sunstein as the new “regulatory czar,” despite the fact that Sunstein stated that he believes hunting should be banned.

The top legal advisor at the State Department, Harold Koh, also received Reid’s support. Koh advocates bringing the U.S. into conformity with a draconian global gun control agenda.

And the newest Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, could not have advanced if Sen. Reid had objected. Indeed, Sen. Reid voted for this anti-gun radical, who had ruled as an Appeals Court judge that a complete gun ban by a state would be constitutional.

As Majority Leader, Reid could have objected to any and all of these nominees and insisted that the president put forth men and women who respected the Second Amendment.

…In a head-to-head match up with Reid, Sharron Angle leads 51% to 40% (emphasis mine), according to a recent Rasmussen poll. This race is winnable, but Sharron needs our help…So please, go to today to contribute and to learn more about this campaign.”

Also, a reminder that Sharron Angle will be on the Mark Levin show this Friday, the 16th, the day after the Tax Day Tea Parties. Sharron is a regular attender and speaker at Tea Parties. Here she is at the Searchlight, NV Tea Party:

About Me

I am a citizen journalist, wife to Bill, and Mommy to Charlotte and Cheyenne. I work at a chemical company writing Material Safety Data Sheets and own a small business on the side. I started this blog to "sound the alarm" on what is happening in this country with respect to the assault on our freedoms, and because I was called to do it: Ezekiel 33:1-5: "The word of the LORD came to me: 'Son of man, speak to your countrymen and say to them: 'When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and the sword comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his own head. Since he heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning, his blood will be on his own head. If he had taken warning, he would have saved himself. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.'"
