The author of “Saving the Bill of Rights” told Human Events, while at the 2013 SHOT Show, he was not surprised by President Barack Obama’s 23 policy memoranda announced Jan. 16 that are the centerpiece of his program to restrict gun rights.

“Well, it’s what we expected,” said Frank Miniter, the former senior editor of Outdoor Life magazine and the author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Hunting” and “The Ultimate Man’s Survival Guide.”

Miniter said, “I wasn’t shocked or surprised, but what I want to know is: ‘Why are we the enemy?’”

The gun owners and gun rights community are all about personal and community safety, he said.
