Here is video of National Rifle Association President David Keene stood up for the 2nd Amendment rights of every American in the face of unrelenting criticism by CBS News’ Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” today. Schieffer acted totally incredulous that the President of the NRA is not in favor of curtailing 2nd Amendment Rights! Keene countered Schieffer’s assertions again and again, reminding Schieffer that the “right to keep and bear arms” is a “Constitutional Right” of every American. At one point, Schieffer was at least honest when he prefaced what he said with, “Maybe it’s my bias. . .” That’s exactly right.
