Besides being an advisory board member for law enforcement organizations, the Washington Post and New York Times named Snyder the “dean” of Washington gun lobbyists.
Snyder pointed out that, “The California Democrat for years has been a leading sponsor of anti-gun legislation with her proposals for mandatory national firearms registration and gun owner licensing, bans on semi-automatic firearms, bans on high-capacity ammunition feeding devices, and so on.
“Now it seems she is zeroing in on Christians, specifically Catholics, with her Committee questioning of a Trump nominee to the 7th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals because of the nominee’s Christian faith. Feinstein got Amy Coney Barrett in the political crosshairs at a recent hearing. The Senator complained directly to the nominee that, ‘the dogma lives loudly within you.'”
Barrett, a Catholic, is a law professor at Notre Dame University.
“Feinstein is concerned about Barrett’s opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage, and is part of the politically-correct gang that seems unable generally to appreciate Christian values and that actively opposes them,” Snyder said.
“Perhaps the elderly anti-gun, anti-Catholic California Senator, now 84, will become known as the ‘Wicked Witch of the West,'” he added.
Feinstein was joined in her character assassination of Barrett by Sen. Dick Durbin, who in the past called U.S. soldiers “Nazi’s” who ran “gulags” in Iraq.
“On the other hand,” Snyder continued, “we can hope and pray that Feinstein and others will see the error of their ways and come to a genuine appreciation of spiritual reality as superior beyond compare with political correctness. Let all of us sinners come to a realization of the truth. Let us all consider deeply the declaration of Jesus Christ that, ‘wicked designs come from the deep recesses of the heart: acts of fornication, theft, murder, adulterous conduct, greed, maliciousness, deceit, sensuality, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, an obtuse spirit. (Mark 7:21-22).’
“Let all consider, also, St. Paul’s warning that, without repenting, ‘no fornicators, idolaters, or adulterers, no sodomites, thieves, misers, or drunkards, no slanderers or robbers will inherit God’s kingdom (1 Corinthians, 6:9-10).'”
A practicing Catholic, 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 and Concerned Citizens.
