NRA chief lobbyist says lawmakers supporting renewed gun-control push ‘will pay a price for it’

by Adam Edelman
June 20, 2016

The NRA’s chief lobbyist issued a jaw-dropping threat Sunday for lawmakers pushing for gun-control measures following the worst mass shooting in U.S. history: You “will pay a price for it.”

“We have a God-given right to defend ourselves, and firearms are an effective means of doing just that,” Chris Cox, the executive director of the powerful gun group’s Institute for Legislative Action, said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“The politicians who want to divert attention away from the underlying problems that suggest that we’re somehow to blame will pay a price for it,” Cox said, responding to a question about how the organization would deploy its $14 million campaign war chest.

Asked to clarify what the “price” for defying the NRA, a spokeswoman was critical of the Daily News coverage of the issue, adding Cox’s statement was “pretty plain-spoken and doesn’t really need clarification.”

    To Adam Edelman. Why don’t you send these comments to the White House so the monkeys can see them. I am sure they can read.

    Being a Viet Nam era Vet means I’m getting up in years. That being said I probably won’t be around in twenty years but I hurt for my children who have to put up with the scum that our scumbag leaders are bringing to this Country for one reason only. To destroy this Country. It boggles the mind that the citizens of this Country have voted in a non citizen not once but twice. Of course they also voted in a perverted lecherous p o s to two terms in 1992 and now want to vote for his criminal wife. Wow has this Country gone down hill. Why bother fighting wars when you bring our enemies to our borders and open the gates. While doing so, taking the rights away from those who fought against the scum. This is insane. I am so disgusted with the leadership of our Country and our Congress, I am litterly sick to my stomach. It reminds me of the tv commercial of the Native American Chief looking at the trash on the landscape and tears rolling down his cheek. I look at our landscape and see the rrash our leaders have littered our streets with and I have a tear rolling down my cheek. You, in Washington, should be ashamed of yourselves. I don’t know how you sleep at night. You fools think Donald Trump is racist, ywt you do not see that Obama is a Muslim through and through. No one is more filled with hate than the radical Muslims that your great leader, (Obama), is flooding our streets with. He has already flooded his White House with them. And to think, Michelle Obama has never been proud of her Country. She is living in the White House, damn it. WTF?
    Sign me, disgusted in AZ

      Congress is 99% lawyers what do you expect they are not the lone ranger with the white hat & silver bullet they are the bad guys after your money. Have you noticed running for office they want us to pay for them to be in congress with there BS be a American send us your money. I fought in the Korea war 1948 to 1952 for this for what purpose to go fight in another war? We have been in war from 1941 to present 2016 is there no end of war?? Fact all wars are started by Democrats this war ISSI was started by pres Clinton & belongs to bigO now. Trump will know what to do ,deport illegals take them to the border get home the way you got here & build the wall Mexico will pay for it

  • downdraft says:

    Isn’t it plain “STUPID THINKING” to say the Government (the ones placing us at risk, the ones who HAVEN’T and WON’T defend us, the ones who are FRIGHTENED of the MUSLIMS)…

    …to say that GUNS should not be owned by the citizens…but to the GOVERNMENT!

    …like THEY are the ones who can be trusted, who are more qualified…

    …well, look around the last 8 rears…49 mass killings…not to mention Benghazi, IRAN…etc.

    These are the responsible and trustworthy????

  • joe says:

    Is everyone keeping a list of the politicians who are pro-gun control? I certainly am maintaining a list of the politicians for whom I can vote —and those _against_ whom I can vote.

  • ADRoberts says:

    What a shame.
    These “congressmen” actually think that they are beyond our reach, either physically or in elections.
    Now imagine, if you will, what might happen if we actually find the government declaring war on us. Or maybe Obama finds a way to cause ANARCHY. Do you suppose these TRAITORS will find a way to hide? Or change back to being for patriots? Or maybe just fly to the “safe room” the Bilderbergs surely have promised for them..

  • Dr. G says:

    Unlike the NSA monitoring authorization that might actually catch something and foil terrorists, this anti-gun push would have done NOTHING to prevent the mass shooting in Orlando, nor would it prevent any terrorist, nut-bag, or simple Bad Guy from their mayhem. It would, however, disarm law abiding Americans. Which is the goal of Leftist Progressive Fascists.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      They’ve proved that none of these terrorist attacks could have been prevented with gun control, the only control it is, is by the Gov., PERIOD!! The same goes for climate change, it’s to force changes in the lives of people for control! Every move they make is for control!

  • tarbella says:

    Only an ignorant person would ask what he meant by paying the price, that or a trouble maker that want’s to make something out of a statement just to make people think it meant something else. I understand clearly what he meant…there would be mass killings from those that hate us and we wouldn’t have a chance in a snow balls H… to stop them without guns. We keep our guns, our Constitution says we have the right to protect ourselves and so does God.

  • Luke says:

    It is imperative that if you have not registered to vote then you do that and vote in Nov. our country depends on it.
    People who sit home for some selfish reason really deserve what they get but the rest of us don’t, so get off your lazy butts and vote for Trump/2016..
    As a Vet I’m proud to be an NRA member and I’m proud of the stance they’re taking against the RINOs that were elected on lies they told..

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      I know several people last time Obama was placed in our house said they were staying at home, because they didn’t like who was running, and this made me sick!

      1. Luke says:

        And if you notice they’re the ones always complaining about what the gov’t is doing to them..

  • SDofAZ says:

    Don’t you just love it when despite the logic the government chooses to crack down on the law abiding citizens? In the no gun zones, the unarmed citizen’s in them pay every time and these law making fools don’t get it. Unarmed citizen’s are targets for these islamic turds, or for the criminals every time. And yet they seek to restrict and restrain the law abiding citizens. NOT! There is no logic here unless you understand the real agenda and that makes the lawmakers we have elected our enemies. They are disarming us or seeking to do so. Now why would they do that? NWO agenda and BO’s fundamental reformation of this country. Apparently the rinos and dem lemmings have joined the agenda. VOTE EM OUT! NOW!!!!!

    1. Worried Vet says:

      Well they don’t care since most have armed body guards. Let’s take away their guns and see how they like it. There’s that old saying again do as I say not as I do. It’s getting freaking old. The liberal media has two sets of rules like the democrats if one of theirs does something wrong they lie and spin when a GOP or conservative does something right their no good mfs and shouldn’t be allowed to live. The media only cares about free speech as long as it don’t affect them. It’s time to stop this one sided crap we call the news.

  • unbridled says:

    Well, it’s looking more and more like those still left in the silent majority, that are true to their convictions, will have to stand up yet again for this nation. I have to admit, I am ashamed to call myself an american these days but as the tears roll down my cheeks I know that the brain washed among us have no idea what it will be like when the country actually becomes what they have been striving to transform it into. I find it mind boggling….
    One would think that even though american history has been suppressed and even removed form the public school curriculum, replaced by world history, that students would be aware of the fact that the things they learn about could happen here. Instead they embrace it’s eventuality….
    I was SENT to Vietnam at the age of nineteen to benefit a few treacherous profiteers that had their children in schools in places like Europe and Canada. The filth that runs this country now is morally aligned with the filth that ran this country then with the edition of PC….
    Only a purely evil government would send it’s young men and women off to SUPPOSEDLY fight for justice and freedom then at the same time import our enemies to to murder unprotected private citizens. I guess a cynical minded person might say they have the best of both worlds. They are killing us here and abroad….

    1. SDofAZ says:

      NWO is alive and well in this country and well said veteran. Too much of this fundamental reformation/destruction was underway before BO. But the silent majority is awake and fighting it. We know now our enemy is the dem lemmings and the go along get along rinos. Good post.

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        And Hellary will be the BEAST to drive the nail home!

        1. Worried Vet says:

          When Hillary lost to Obama she became the crown princess. Even the GOP are helping to have the coronation of queen Hillary. It’s sad but it’s up-to us to stop this madness. I do think Hillary is like J. Edgar she has files on everyone hell who knows what she has.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            And she’s probably got a longer hit list than J. Edgar!

          2. Worried Vet says:

            I thought that but I did not want to sound like a conspiracy nut. Lol it’s so sad so many conspiracy theories seem to be real.

          3. Rodney Steward says:

            Theories are being replaced with facts! The White house has hit a wall, American’s have opened up their eyes to ALL the SCAMS of the Gov. and Obama is getting bold and a little clumsy!

          4. Worried Vet says:

            Yes between Obama trying so hard to push his agenda and the media helping him they make Trump more popular. Him kicking out the media was one of the best things he could have done. It let’s people know how corrupt they really are. That headline that trump said Obama has something to do with Orlando was an out and out lie. Trump called them on it that scares the hell out of the media when someone calls them on lies. I doubt they will start telling the truth but it let’s people know they can’t be trusted. Find honest news sources not in the tank for the liberal agenda

          5. Rodney Steward says:

            I agree my friend! Hard to find a Honest one!!

          6. Worried Vet says:

            Yes i thought in this country the media was supposed to be fair not like Hitler’s propaganda machine. They have gotten away with this way to long. Trump is helping expose them for what they really are. A biased liberal no free speech unless it’s them corrupt media.

          7. Rodney Steward says:

            This is why the WHOLE system is against Trump, afraid of being exposed for what they really are and want!

          8. Worried Vet says:

            Well I’m praying it’s to late and Trump has exposed them enough to wake people up to the truth not propaganda. If they figure out propaganda has been the destruction of countries or the oppression of the people every time maybe they will do what’s right

      2. unbridled says:

        We have no effective allies in DC. Those that make a good showing turn out to be inept and virtually guilty by association….

        1. Worried Vet says:

          Amen but the south didn’t want to give up their life style. The democrats were the biggest fans of succeeding from the union. Without free labor they would not make the profits. The democrats from the south walked out on Congress. This is what I don’t understand, the liberal and racist have been democrats. Him crow , Byrd and many others didn’t want to end segregation. They still to this day try to keep the blacks and Mexicans down but they continue to vote for them. I have family and friends from both groups who are die hard liberal voters. I don’t get it.

          1. unbridled says:

            Yes, and the best part is the promises that are made and broken or worse yet, kept. The country is in shambles because of them. Self reliance is out the window. Chicago & Detroit are prime examples of their abilities to govern….

          2. Worried Vet says:

            Yep I have said for years look at any city or state that’s broke and bankrupt liberal policies don’t work period. Look how we have to bail out people because of their stupid policies. We’re broke as a country and we’re bailing out greedy idiots. It’s disgusting to say the least. It should be against the law. We give billions to countries each year that has us, these whiners should be brought on treason.

    2. Worried Vet says:

      Hey good post. Thank you very much for your service. I joined at 17 during Vietnam. Guys like you are the ones who seen the worst and know why we lost or as one captain said we pulled out. I worked with cryptology so I was pretty safe. I seen what it did to the ones who fought. Now it sickens me like you said we’re bringing our enemies here to our land. Now they can kill civilians to further the liberal agenda. It really should piss every sane person off this is being allowed. It really should piss off any GOP who voted for these idiot rinos who are going along to get along. I always had some suspicions but when they passed over trillion dollar budget I know they could care less about us. These elites are covered if things go really bad but us the regular people are screwed beyond help. People wake up these posts should scare everyone and the truth is out there if you bother looking. Don’t let the media talk for you use common sense and make up your own minds.

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        We have a President that is the enemy bringing the enemy to us!

        1. Worried Vet says:

          Sure seems like he is on their side. I never wanted to believe because he lived and was raised I. Pakistan he was like this. That’s what I get for hoping we have honest people In office

          1. Jeanne Ballard says:

            The USA civilization is in decay

          2. Worried Vet says:

            Yes it is and if Hillary is elected I’m afraid were doomed. She will be a power freak. I have trained managers and seen how power goes to their head. I can’t imagine her with the power of the president.

    3. Cleverfun says:

      I’m NEVER ashamed to call myself an American and I’m NEVER going to apologize for being WHITE.

      The pendulum will swing in the other direction one day and it WILL be a day of reckoning!

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        AMEN, it’s not the country, the idiots running it!

        1. Cleverfun says:

          and the powers that be have run up a 20-TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT essentially running our Country off its’ financial rails & all they can think of is disarming the American people before an inevitable financial collapse of which they have caused!

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            And that’s when we’ll need them the most! When the SHTF, people are going to try to take other peoples stuff how ever they can!

          2. Cleverfun says:

            That’s why ALL the Syrians & Mexicans… none of this was an accident

          3. Worried Vet says:

            Yep and that’s scary. People don’t get when the dollar fails were in this real time. The elites won’t be they have done this to turn us into a third world nation. People have to wake up and unite against these freaking crooks. Does anyone really believe these idiots in charge will take a pay cut or less benefits because we’re broke? If you do I have some land I need to sell. Wake up people now before its to late

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            These elites don’t realize, without we the people, there is no them, these free riding Illegals don’t pay any taxes, just cause trouble!

          5. Worried Vet says:

            You would be shocked how many do taxes with someone else’s social security card. They get the earned income credit for thousands and food stamps and all the other benefits. I have been around the field of tax preparer and accounting over 20 years and it’s very common. The fraud is staggering. The irs does very little about it even when you call them. PC is destroying this country and I can’t Say it enough wake up people this is your lives were talking about. If your that fragile and need a safe space because your feelings are hurt then move. Life isn’t always easy and hurt feelings makes us stronger and smarter. If we had to go to a war like WWII how in the hell can we win? Japan wanted to invade us before pearl harbour they decided it was a good idea because Americans owned so many guns. That’s a huge plus for us in keeping out an invasion force. Do you really want the government to take our guns? If we ever become like Australia we won’t stand a chance against any country that decides to land an army on our shores. We don’t have the military to defend us. Obama has weakened us to the point of destruction. If the media was honest people would know gun free zones are a shooting gallery for nuts. You don’t see on the news where a gun owner stopped a mad man and saved lives. This agenda the liberals have is not about protecting us, it’s about protecting them. Get a freaking clue.

      2. unbridled says:

        From you lips to Gods ears, otherwise you may be getting a crash course in patriotism or humility real soon….

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Nostradamus did say the New World (USA) would see two civil wars and both would be bloody, we’ve had one!

          1. unbridled says:

            That’s a frightening thought when you first encounter it. After that, it inspires and serves to guide you in the necessary direction. Do NOT give up that which you may have to protect you and you family. Their are and have been no LEGAL LAWS coming out of DC and the rule of law, constitutionally speaking, has become the ruler’s law….
