@NYDailyNews Sets Up Ambush for NRA at #NRAAM

The New York Daily News extended an invitation to Jackie Rowe-Adams, a New York mother whose two sons were slain by criminals using firearms and the founder of Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E, to attend the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits. One can only gather from this that the intent was to put her face to face with one or more officials of the organization and plead her case for strict gun control.  And that is exactly what happened.
Rowe-Adams, one of the founders of the group Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E., stood in front of the stage where LaPierre appeared to ask for his support on background checks for gun buyers and microstamping.
Mrs. Rowe-Adams' husband had to buy a membership (the article said $25 but advertising for the event said non members could enter for $10) to get into the meeting.  The couple expressed "shock" at the number of families attending the show. 
“You see little babies asking questions about the guns,” she said. “It’s eerie. It’s not a good feeling, and it breaks my heart."
What gun ban advocates either do not understand or don't want to accept, is that the shooting sport is a family activity.  VSSA interviewed a number of the shooters signing autographs at the various manufacturer booths this weekend and there was a common theme - they all started shooting with their parents (all of the female shooters interviewed told similar stories).

So, while the mainstream media take every opportunity to present NRA leaders and members in a negative light, and gun control advocates push for more and more restrictions on freedom, the vast majority of Americans have positive views of the NRA and the right to keep and bear arms.

I was on the phone with a reporter from the DN for 15-20 minutes and all the ran was a two-word quote from me.

What this poor woman who experienced a HORRIBLE tragedy doesn't seem to understand, is that criminals don't give a flying leap about gun control laws. Obviously, they didn't give a leap about the law saying don't murder someone, why would they care if a gun is illegal? The NRA is the FIRST group to condemn using guns in an irresponsible way. Much like the tragedy going on in Florida right now, the liberal media will never fail to latch onto a crisis to push their agenda, and I feel sad for this mother who apparently does not realize she is being used to promote a liberal agenda.
