Stephen Platzer Comments on NRA's Role in Upcoming Presidential Election, Voters Consider Gun Owner Rights

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 05, 2012

Throughout American history, gun control and ownership has remained a pivotal political and social issue. Those belonging to the National Rifle Association have consistently aimed to protect American citizens' right to bear arms as outlined by the Second Amendment. However, others critical of these rights believe guns only increase violent activities within the country and ownership of firearms should no longer be as available or even legal. A recent article from CNN adds to this on-going debate, and reveals that the National Rifle Association has begun to launch campaigns against the reelection of President Barack Obama in the next presidential election this November. NRA supporter Stephen Platzer responds positively to the organization's attempt to raise awareness, noting that the issue not only pertains to gun ownership, but also to the overall protection of the U.S. Constitution.

In the article, Chris W. Cox, Executive Director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, explains that the non-profit organization has taken a strong stance against Obama, due to so-called changes in his approach on gun control. Cox states, “Some gun owners took Obama at his word four years ago, when he said he wouldn't take their guns away. So, after years of paying lip service to the Second Amendment, President Obama finally let it slip…that he supports the most draconian form of gun control – a gun ban.”

Following a similar sentiment, Stephen Platzer encourages all Americans to take a look at the politics and information behind each heavily-debated subject, not just those pertaining to gun ownership rights. In support of the recent actions of the National Rifle Association, Stephen Platzer concludes, “The Second Amendment is considered a social issue, but it is at the very roots of our country's history and foundation of a civilized free society. Laws are necessary as we are a nation of laws; if we start letting politicians make drastic changes to our personal freedoms then our country will drastically change. It is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed because we are the ones who essentially hold the power to direct which direction the country is headed. Voting is extremely important and I hope Americans understand their duty to protect the U.S. Constitution.”

Stephen Platzer is a supporter of the National Rifle Association – a non-profit group that aims to protect Second Amendment rights to bear firearms. Stephen Platzer respects every Americans right to decide whether or not they want to own a gun, but believes that if the public became more educated—such as through NRA programs—people would become less likely to stay against firearm ownership. Stephen Platzer encourages all gun owners to carefully review firearm safety and to follow all laws, as they exist to protect all citizens. In addition to his NRA advocacy, Stephen Platzer is also a proud supporter of charitable organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
