State Sell-Out: Gunderson Still Pushing Anti Gun Brady Check Expansion Bill
Green Bay, WI – -(AmmoLand.com)- State Rep. Gunderson didn’t respond to WGO’s past Candidate Surveys. Now, he’s pushing a bill to expand the Brady background system. Where does his allegiance lie? With Sarah Brady, or the Constitution?
Ignoring the wishes of grassroots gun owners, and doing the bidding of Sarah Brady, State Rep. Scott Gunderson is still pushing AB70, the bill to expand the National Instant Check System (NICS) in Wisconsin.
The silence by the institutional gun lobby on this dangerous anti-gun bill has been splitting ear drums. NRA-ILA e-mail alerts have not mentioned a peep about this bill, which is being dubbed by WGO the “Veterans Disarmament Act.”
Assembly Bill 70 and Senate Bill 44 would dangerously expand state-level back ground checks to include far-reach medical data.
As mentioned in previous alerts, the federal version of this gun control scheme, HR2640, was passed into law by what most gun owners considered a betrayal of trust by congressional republicans and the NRA last year.
Gun Owners of America (GOA), the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) and Wisconsin Gun Owners, Inc. (WGO) (along with an army of rock-solid state-level gun rights organizations from across the country ) steadfastly opposed the mental health bills on the basis that it would subject gun owners and their rights to arbitrary “diagnosis” by psychiatrists.
It was passed into law and has since become a virtual nightmare for thousands of veterans. Nightmarish stories are already surfacing about gun owners who lost the right to keep and bear arms without due process.
All it takes is one anti-gun government mental health crony to declare you “adjudicated mentally defective” and you lose your guns.
And now state republicans are sneaking this same anti-scheme behind your back in Madison. Last week State Rep. Scott Gunderson — who has never returned WGO’s Candidate Survey —introduced an amendment to the bill, breathing new life into the anti-gun scheme.
Gun owners are urged to contact NRA-ILA to ask why, “Why the silence?”
WGO works for grassroots gun owners, not politicians. While many gun lobbies fight for “reasonable gun control,” WGO sets a higher standard: Defining the terrain of pro-gun political battle. Sure, many groups claim they’re “pro-gun” — all the while they provide cover for anti-gun deals cut by politicians — but only WGO truly informs gun owners, remaining committed to a 100% pro-gun position. We oppose all gun control — regardless of the political party — and work tirelessly to restore the Second Amendment.
