NRA-ILA’s Chris Cox: Attorney General Sessions Will Free DOJ from Gun Control Lobby

by Awr Hawkins |  |  Published on January 6, 2017

On January 5 the NRA-ILA’s Chris Cox used a USA-Today column to call for the confirmation of Jeff Sessions to the office of Attorney General, stressing that Sessions will free the Department of Justice from the grip of the gun control lobby.

Cox opened his column with:

For the last eight years, Americans who care about the Second Amendment and our right to self-defense have faced an administration intent on dismantling those freedoms. The gun control lobby, funded by billionaires like Michael Bloomberg, tried to turn the 2016 election into a referendum on the Second Amendment — and they lost. Now, due in no small part to the efforts of the National Rifle Association and our members, law-abiding gun owners can look forward to a president who respects our rights. In that regard, we should all be happy about President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next attorney general.

The reference to the gun control lobby is important, because Bloomberg–and Bloomberg-funded groups like Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety–are part of that lobby. And they are joined by Gabby Giffords, Mark Kelly, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, States United, and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Together, these various groups and individuals form a well-funded lobby that aims to restrict the exercise of Second Amendment rights at every opportunity.

This gun control lobby has thrived under President Obama and his Attorney Generals Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. Together, Obama, Holder, and Lynch have opposed gun rights, allowing the gun control lobby to enjoy numerous opportunities on their watch. In effect, they have fought a proxy war against gun rights via the various members of the gun control lobby.
