Snyder noted that, "The Islamic State (ISIS) inspired the attack, according to Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives."

Snyder said, "You don't know when, where or how extremist militant Islamists will strike. You must be able to stop them anywhere, anytime, any place. That's common sense. Americans need firearms in order to protect themselves, their families and their communities.

"Calls for gun control are off the wall, whether they come from our whacked-out president or other pathetic politicians or even out-to-lunch church prelates."

Snyder added, "It's time to deep-six demands for more and more gun control. It's time to dump the politicians, academics, media personnel and clergymen who make them."

Snyder has been named "the dean of Washington gun lobbyists" by the Washington Post and New York Times, "a champion of the right of self-defense" by the Washington Times, the "gun dean" by Human Events, and "the senior rights activist in Washington" by Shotgun News.

He is a former NRA magazine editor, and official of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Second Amendment Foundation. He serves on the boards of the National Association of Chiefs of Police and American Federation of Police & Concerned Citizens.
