Colorado -–(Ammoland.com)- Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley has a “gun control lite” bill he’s selling to weak-kneed Senators on Capitol Hill . . .

. . . and what’s even worse, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, “it might be something I can support.”

You would think ALL Republicans are lining up behind Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to support the filibuster of Harry Reid’s gun control bill — S. 649.

But that’s just not happening.

And it appears Grassley and McConnell’s “gun control lite” bill could destroy all efforts to stop Obama’s war on your gun rights when the Senate returns to Washington on April 8 2013.

It’s unclear exactly what Grassley’s gun control bill contains, but it’s clear he’s more than willing to cut a “deal,” especially after he was the lone Republican vote with the gun-grabbers in a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

That’s exactly how we’re going to get gun control — weak-kneed Republicans buckling.

That’s why it’s vital you take action AT ONCE.

Call the offices of both Senators — Grassley and McConnell — RIGHT NOW!

INSIST Grassley and McConnell OPPOSE the motion to proceed on S. 649, SUPPORT the Paul, Cruz and Lee filibuster, and, drop their plans for a “gun control lite” bill.

  • Senator Chuck Grassley: 202-224-3744
  • Senator Mitch McConnell: 202-224-2541

Obama’s gun control point man in the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid, is on the look-out for just this type of weak-kneed behavior from as many Republicans as he can find.

Grassley and McConnell are two of his top targets.

If Reid manages to pick up the support of enough Senate Republicans, Obama will get what he wants — fictitious “gun trafficking” legislation, so-called “mental health screenings” and “expanded background checks.”

Possibly even more gun control like Feinstein’s so-called “assault weapons ban” and a federal magazine ban will also be on the table.

That’s why Senator Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell’s history of “deal-cutting” should be so worrisome to gun owners.

In 2009, instead of whipping Republicans to oppose Obamacare at every opportunity, Grassley worked to a cut a “deal” with anti-freedom forces hell-bent on taking over the American health care system.

I don’t have to go back far to remind you that Mitch McConnell has a history of caving in to the demands of Obama and Harry Reid.

In January, NAGR members fought tooth-and-nail INSISTING Mitch McConnell not cave to Harry Reid’s demands to gut the Senate filibuster.

In the end, McConnell forfeited several of the procedural motions used with great effect by Senator Rand Paul and others to delay legislation that the Majority Leader is trying to jam through, allowing bad legislation to pass more quickly.

And how could we forget McConnell cutting a “deal” with Obama and Reid on the so-called “fiscal cliff” earlier this year?

McConnell’s “deal” gave Obama and Reid $41 in tax increases in exchange for $1 in spending cuts. Yes, you read that right.

So if Senator Chuck Grassley’s “gun control lite” bill looks anything similar to the “deals” he and McConnell have cut in recent years, your gun rights will be on the chopping block in just a matter of days.

The only force standing in the way of Reid’s gun control dreams is the vow of a filibuster by Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.

By filibustering — opposing the motion to proceed on S. 649 –- Paul, Cruz and Lee can hold the line against gun control for the moment.

And if they hold the filibuster and prevent Reid from getting the 60 votes he needs to break it, gun owners win the first battle in the Obama administration’s war on gun owners.

That’s why it’s vital you call the offices of both Senators — Grassley and McConnell — RIGHT NOW!

INSIST Grassley and McConnell OPPOSE the motion to proceed on S. 649, SUPPORT the Paul, Cruz and Lee filibuster, and, drop their plans for a “gun control lite” bil.

Thanks — in advance — for taking action.

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

    1. Just sent off an email to Grassley. I let him know that he’s being used by Obama to push the left gun grab bill. Its not about background checks which we already have, its about gun registration which will lead to registration fees on each gun we own. Once the government had that list, they can change the law to say any violations of any laws even a traffic ticket could mean you have to turn in your weapons. Failure to pay the registration fees on a yearly basis per gun you own, also would mean having to turn in all your guns. It can and will happen if Numnuts like Grassley don’t wake up.

    2. They are both cowardly rhino b–t–ds . The only acceptable gun laws are NON-EXISTENT now and forever , unless they are repealing all the gunlaws that haven’t worked .

      Senator Grassley,
      Senator McConnell

      I urge you to refuse to back up a single inch to the Gun Grabbing Democrats and Barack Obama. They have never been interested in negotiations, debate, or compromise, only in our capitulation to their demands. There is no such thing as a “lite” version of gun control. Any infringement upon our right to keep and bear arms is a violation of OUR Constitution. Those people will never be satisfied until the private ownership of ALL firearms is abolished. As long as you’ve been dealing with them you shouldn’t need to be reminded of that fact.

      Respectfully submitted,
      Woody W Woodward [W3]

      The only thing important to Grassley is the Payola….Oops….campaign contributions he receives fro the ethanol farmers – nothing else in the country matters as long as he won’t look bad on the pages of the Washington Post.
      Now that Ashley’s not going to run, or will she???? McConnell seems to have returned his spine to the Senate Cloak-room, where it has spent most of his career.

    6. Send in the emails, even if you are from another state. Just put down a city in their state and make up a zip code. If they can operate by hook or crook, so can we. The ends justifies the means.

      They will never get my guns no matter what laws they pass. We are going to need them one day when Obama and his henchmen rise up against us all. It will be 1939 all over again. Look what happened to the Jews when Hitler ” Registered their guns”
