BAD SEED: ACORN Pushing to Disarm Americans
Criminologists say it’s human nature. With each time one breaks the law and gets away with it, the instinct to do it again grows stronger. In the case of the tarnished and highly controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), it seems to go beyond that.
Alan Gottlieb, Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, is available for Talk Show interviews to elaborate on this statement and usher a resounding battle cry to gun owners everywhere. ACORN’s track record would certainly back him up.
As a tax-exempt, publicly funded, nonprofit group, ACORN is prohibited to endorse a political candidate or position. So, during last year’s Presidential election, it went further, and used taxpayer money to not only fund its campaign support for Barack Obama . . . it actively orchestrated voter fraud on behalf of their candidate.
Likewise, ACORN also used taxpayer funding to run its intimidation tactics aimed at strong-arming banks into underwriting the high-risk loans that triggered our current global recession—marking the greatest economic turbulence since 1929.
Now, the group is at it again, and they’re right inside Gottlieb’s wheelhouse. Taking yet another prohibited political stance, ACORN recently went public with its gun-control activism, intervening—albeit, unsuccessfully—in an attempt to defend Jersey City, New Jersey, anti-gun extremists who were pushing for stiffer local firearm restrictions . . . restrictions that had already been struck down by the New Jersey state court as a violation of state law.
Alan Gottlieb contends that the interests of Obama and ACORN are in disarming law-abiding citizens. Instead, he says it is ACORN that should be ‘disarmed,’ by suspending all federal funding for the ‘bad seed’ ACORN organization, pending an investigation into the group’s activities.
Gottlieb finds ACORN’s obsession for the disarmament of American citizens to be rather ominous, considering Obama has preached of installing an armed ‘national civilian security force’ that would answer to him. Perhaps ACORN isn’t actually against disarmament at all. It may only be a question of who they want disarmed.
