CCRKBA TO SEATTLE: ‘GUN VIOLENCE TAX IS A MONUMENTAL FAILURE!’

May 25, 2017 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – Almost two years after the City of Seattle adopted a hastily-crafted “gun violence tax” ostensibly aimed at reducing so-called “gun violence,” city police statistics show a startling 17 percent increase in the number of police calls for gunshots, and an alarming 30 percent increase in the number of shooting victims.

CRIME DATA SHOW U.K. GUN, KNIFE CRIME SPIKE; ‘CONTROL’ FAILED, SAYS CCRKBA

Apr 20, 2017 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – A new report from Scotland Yard reveals that a “significant spike in knife and gun offenses” has occurred in the United Kingdom, throwing cold water on the notion that restrictive British gun and knife laws have made that nation safer, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

According to Scotland Yard, there has been a 42 percent increase in so-called “gun violence” and a 24 percent rise in “knife offenses” during the 2016-2017 financial year.

CCRKBA LAUDS SENATE VOTE TO PROTECT 2A RIGHTS OF SOC.-SEC. RECIPIENTS

Feb 15, 2017 — CCRKBA

CCRKBA: Connecticut Gov. Malloy Wants To Reduce Deficit On Backs Of Gun Owners

Feb 15, 2017 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The Washington State House Judiciary Committee is meeting Thursday in Olympia for an executive session during which they will vote on two gun control measures, HB 1387 and HB 1122, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

“We are urging every gun owner in the state to contact committee members,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “House Bill 1387 requires licensing and registration of so-called ‘assault weapons’ and ‘large capacity’ ammunition magazines. The other bill, HB 1122, is a vaguely written attempt to micro-manage every gun owner in the state with a storage mandate that could criminalize anyone who does not comply.”

CCRKBA: Connecticut Gov. Malloy Wants To Reduce Deficit On Backs Of Gun Owners

Feb 11, 2017 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – Anti-gun Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy is trying to solve his state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit by forcing the state’s gun owners to empty their wallets in order to exercise a constitutional right, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

CCRKBA Slams Seattle Mayor for Hypocrisy In “Sanctuary” Snit

Jan 26, 2017 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is condemning Seattle Mayor Ed Murray for “monumental hypocrisy” after he declared that the City of Seattle will fight a new Trump administration directive on so-called “sanctuary cities” by going to court to “insure…that the United States Constitution is not violated.”

“When it comes to violating the Constitution, Ed Murray has expert experience,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “This is the guy who was publicly embarrassed in 2013 when, as a state senator, he sponsored a gun ban bill that would have allowed warrantless searches of gun owners’ homes by sheriff’s deputies. After that was reported, Murray and his co-sponsors scrambled to remove that language from the bill, but it still failed.”

Call Your Senators To Confirm Sessions As AG

Jan 9, 2017 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is today encouraging its members and supporters to contact their U.S. Senators and urge them to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions as the next United States Attorney General.

“Jeff Sessions is a man who clearly understands the Second Amendment as well as the rest of the Bill of Rights,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “He doesn’t merely ‘support’ the Second Amendment with lip service, he has defended it against erosion by anti-gunners during his Capitol Hill career.”

Federal Jury Does Right What Anti-Gunners Do Wrong

Dec 15, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said a federal jury in South Carolina did right what anti-gunners have been doing wrong for decades, by convicting a killer who misused a firearm, rather than holding every gun owner in America responsible for the crime.

Chicago’s Continued Bloodbath Is Proof Of Gun Control Failure

Oct 31, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – Following what the Chicago Tribune is calling the deadliest weekend so far this year, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said the continued slaughter is proof that the city’s strict gun control laws are an abject failure.

At least 17 people died over the weekend, bringing the year’s death toll to at least 638 people. So far, more than 3,660 people have been shot in the Windy City, and two full months still remain.

CCRKBA Calls On Oregon Judge To Resign After Anti-Gun Remarks

Sep 30, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today called on Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Walker to step down from the bench after launching an anti-gun-rights tirade in court earlier this week in which he stated that firearms “are a scourge of this country and no one should have one as far as I’m concerned.”

“Judge Walker is entitled to his opinion,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “but he should not use the bench as a bully pulpit to attack a constitutionally-protected civil right. Just because he had to sentence a criminal to prison for brutally murdering another man in 2014 is no excuse for this kind of rhetoric.”

Anti-Gunners Already Exploit Mall Tragedy

Sep 28, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA — The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today expressed relief that a suspect in the horrible incident at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington is now in custody, and offers its heartfelt sympathy to the victims and their families for their painful loss.

“All of Washington State and the Pacific Northwest, including our members and supporters and more than a million law-abiding firearms owners certainly grieve for those directly affected by this inexplicable crime,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “We will learn more about the suspect and his motives as the investigation continues.

CCRKBA Rips Media For Telling Only Part Of Story About Mall Hero

Sep 20, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The “mainstream press” is once again trying to spin away from positive coverage about armed citizens and the fallacy of so-called “gun-free zones” in its reports about the St. Cloud, Minnesota mall shooting and the hero shooter, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

The Problem Isn’t Gun Rights, It’s Chicago!

Aug 29, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The weekend arrest of two brothers now charged in the slaying of Nykea Aldridge is further evidence that gun rights aren’t the problem in Chicago, the system is, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“What we have learned about this case is an outrage,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “The suspects are brothers and both are known gang members and repeat offenders. One of them has been identified as a career gun offender who has been on parole since February. The other was on some sort of daily break from an electronic monitoring bracelet, and that guy has six prior felony arrests.

Obama Is Soft On Criminals, Hard On Gun Owners

Aug 5, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – When Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 214 convicted criminals Wednesday, there were some 50 people on that list whose offenses included either using or carrying a gun at the time, leading the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to wonder why the president is softer on gun-packing criminals than he is on gun-owning honest citizens.

“Barack Obama has never missed an opportunity to exploit some tragedy in an effort to curtail legal gun ownership,” CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb observed. “But the other day he granted leniency to people who have actually committed crimes while armed. As many people have been led to suspect with his foreign policy decisions, his action on Wednesday leaves us convinced that he can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys

CCRKBA Rips Gun Ban Proposed By Northwest Gun Prohibition Groups

Jul 27, 2016 — CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today blasted two prominent Pacific Northwest gun prohibition lobbying groups for proposing legislation aimed at penalizing law-abiding gun owners for the crimes of racist cop killers and home-grown terrorists.

“The ban on so-called ‘assault weapons’ proposed Wednesday by Washington Ceasefire and Ceasefire Oregon plays on public fear, and goes after the wrong people,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “But at least for the first time both groups are officially out of the closet as gun prohibition organizations. No longer can they hide behind the façade of ‘gun safety’ or even ‘gun control.’ They want to ban an entire class of firearms.”
