STEPHANIE CUTTER: President Obama provides the leadership here, and he said the American people have to speak up and make their voices heard in this debate. Just like the NRA is doing with there membership. And President Obama's network across this country, grassroots individuals, who organize, volunteered with their time to get the president reelected are much more powerful than the NRA lobby.

And I think that you can expect to see that network activated, very soon. And for good reason. We need to pass commonsense legislation to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and those who shouldn't be carrying guns. That's the commonsense nature of this.


We may have a problem here. We are disorganized enough as it is.

Amazing how a shooting in Conn. Suddenly evolves into an all out war on an org.(NRA) that didn't have a damn thing to do with it. What about the other pro 2A groups ? The NRA is making money hand over fist and gaining power almost as though it was planned.

A Fair Haven in an unfair state.
I expected no less... Time for another donation to the NRA. I'll be at the state house on Saturday. I'm writing and calling all my reps. I don't know what else I can do at the moment - except resist when they come for me.. and I think they will come. They have to have some idea what I've got...

I really wish the NRA would do a Feinstein hit job, a video showing her comments about carrying concealed to protect herself and then claiming that we don't have the same right.

Sort of like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Obog6eoYd_c

One thing here is that I think Obama is making a mistake, because by attacking the NRA he is breaking his own rules.

And since attacking institutions is tougher, I would expect this attack to be brutal.

RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

I also doubt he'll have a billion dollars to activate the network with ...

It's not surprising. Bruce Schneier talks about this on his blog:
