“In the spirit of thanksgiving for electoral victory, let the GOP resolve this holiday weekend to sock it hard to the left,” Gun Dean John M. Snyder said today.
The Washington Post and New York Times have named Snyder the “dean of Washington gun lobbyists.”
“Republicans,” Snyder noted, “soon will control the White House and both the Senate and House of Representatives for the first time in about 90 years.
“This gives America a golden opportunity to smash leftist initiatives. Go for it, GOP. No holds barred.”
“For too long,” said Snyder, “Americans have been the victims of leftist ideology and the reprehensible culture, laws and regulation flowing from that essentially flawed Marxist philosophy. The November 8 election results indicate that the public is ready to discard the left and what it stands for.
“It’s up to Republicans to understand this new political reality and to move ahead at flank speed and take advantage of the opportunities it creates.”
Snyder said, “It’s time to target onerous federal gun laws for repeal or severe modification. It’s time to enact national concealed firearm carry reciprocity, to promote constitutional gun carry, and to work for a Supreme Court super-majority that supports the individual Second Amendment civil right to keep and bear arms.
“We could be on the verge of a golden age for traditional Americanism. Let us hope, pray and work for it.”
Snyder has been named “a champion of the right of self-defense” by the Washington Times, the “gun dean” by Human Events, and “the senior rights activist in Washington” by Shotgun News. The Trace designated him a power broker.
He holds AB and MA degrees in government from Georgetown University. He has been an NRA magazine editor and official of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Second Amendment Foundation. He directs Telum Associates, LL.C, and serves on boards of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, Council for America and American Federation of Police & Concerned Citizens.
