EPOCH TIMES — President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 8 promised to “defeat” the National Rifle Association while he’s in office.

Biden’s official Twitter account was responding to former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was among 14 people wounded in a shooting rampage by Jared Lee Loughner in Tucson in 2011; six people died in the attack. Giffords had recounted how her life and community “changed forever.”

“But the attack did not break me — or the people I represented in Congress. We came together, turned pain into purpose, and found hope in each other,” she wrote, adding that she continues to work to “achieve a safer America.”

Biden responded, saying: “Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others. I pledge to continue to work with you — and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country — to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.”

The NRA, which has more than 5 million members, seeks to protect and educate people about their Second Amendment rights. […]

  1. It’s not as if the NRA is the only gun rights group out there…. As with so many if not all communist countries past and present, the communists NEVER take over an entire nation (even Hong Kong is still somewhat autonomous….maybe North Korea is an exception to this)…even small communist countries are never completely taken. Best example is Albania. According to the book The History of the Party of Labor of Albania, Enver Hoxha and Co. never could completely take the mountainous regions in the northeast bordering Macedonia and Montenegro, and in the late 60s and early 70s they waged a campaign to get the entire country under their boot, but failed, because the population known as Ghegs used the “Code of Lek” (with blood feud) to take the commies down. For more about this Code of Lek read the stories of Albania’s leading author, Ishmael Kadare, especially “The Wedding.”

    What I’m saying is that there is NO WAY Commie Kammy and Co. will install communism throughout the US (and some Texas legislator is trying to push into the legislature the possibility of SECESSION….after all Texas used to be the Republic of Texas back in the late 1830s and 1840s):

  2. Less mentioned and highly redacted, a federal judge was 100% murdered that day in Arizona. I read he ruled on something that highly pissed off the Obama administration and he was removed sans election.
