Anti Gunner Harry Reid’s Destruction of America Continues

Anti Gunner Harry Reid’s Destruction of America Continues

Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is having a busy couple of weeks in Washington.

Last week, he attempted to pass the so-called DISCLOSE Act, which is intended to silence organizations like Gun Owners of America because we dare to disclose the voting records of Members of Congress.

Thankfully, that bill was defeated — at least temporarily. Reid and the bill’s sponsor, Chuck Schumer (D-NY), have promised to bring DISCLOSE back to the floor for another vote after the August recess.

If this legislation becomes law (it has already passed in the House), it will require groups like GOA to spend up to half of a 30-second ad identifying themselves and disclosing the names of top donors rather than talking about a congressman’s anti-gun votes.

At the same time, the bill exempts “incumbent friendly” groups like labor unions, the AARP, and the NRA.

And Harry Reid, the embattled Senator from Nevada, would like this bill to take effect before the 2010 elections!

Reid and Kagan
This week, Reid will bring to the floor the confirmation of anti-gunner Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court.

Senator Reid claims to support the Second Amendment and likes to tell folks back home that he is not a mere puppet of the community organizer who occupies the White House.

So, will he stand up for Americans’ gun rights and vote against a nominee who quite possibly could become the most anti-gun member of the Supreme Court?

Not likely…

Remember, Reid pushed Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court after assuring Senators that she recognized the Second Amendment as being an individual right.

How did that turn out?
In the recent McDonald case, Sotomayor joined the minority dissent that could “find nothing in the Second Amendment’s text, history, or underlying rationale that could warrant characterizing it as ‘fundamental’ insofar as it seeks to protect the keeping and bearing of arms for private self-defense purposes.”

Now comes Elena Kagan offering the same empty promises about respecting the Second Amendment and the Supreme Court’s decisions in Heller and McDonald.

Kagan said nothing in her confirmation hearings that would preclude her from gutting the Second Amendment every chance she gets. In fact, everything that’s known about Kagan paints a portrait of a forceful, politically-driven gun control advocate.

That being the case, there is NO WAY any Senator who claims to support gun rights could vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court!

But amazingly, Harry Reid STILL claims to be pro-gun, even though he repeatedly votes against the interests of gun owners.

In fact, GOA has listed over 40 anti-gun votes Reid has cast over the course of his Senate career.

Harry Reid has been playing games with your Second Amendment rights for far too long.

But he cannot continue to claim to be pro-gun and at the same time seek to silence groups like GOA and to confirm judges — like Elena Kagan — who will eviscerate the Second Amendment.

It’s time for a change.
Sharron Angle, who is running against Reid in the November election, is a consistent friend of your gun rights. She does not waver in the face of opposition from anti-gunners in Washington or in the media.

Gun Owners of America is proud to endorse Sharron in the upcoming election. And she can win, but only with the support of like-minded gun owners and sportsmen.

Harry Reid brags that he will raise and spend over $25 million. So if one million Second Amendment supports send Sharron just $25 each, she will match Reid dollar-for-dollar.

And that’s exactly what Gun Owners is urging. Can you help with a contribution of at least $25? If so, please visit www.sharronangle.com to make a donation.

The Nevada Senate race is the most important in the country. Thank you for standing with Gun Owners of America and Sharron Angle for U.S. Senate.

Sincerely,

If The NRA endorses Reid for re-election I am asking for my dues back (5 years worth)and ask to be removed from their mail list I AM ALSO SENDING A COPY OF THIS ARTICLE TO TO THEM lets see if I get an answer back

I am voting out every incumbant I can out of office. It is way past time that we get new faces in Congress and the Senate. Especially after this lastest turn of events. It is clear that the current politicians don't give a rats as about the country or what its population thinks. What is going on now is just a taste of a socialistic life.

DAve

If there is even a remote chance for this bill to become law then the GOA needs to act quick and make dedicated comercials that talk about their stance against private ownership of guns. before its too late.

Was wondering when the infamous Harry Reid voting record was gonna see light of day. The photo op of Harry Reid with the NRA officials back a couple of American Rifleman issues ago was so blantantly political. Reid and his ilk are completely anti-gun and would do or say anything to get re-elected. Americans are so myopic and fail to look at candidates voting records. As a patron member of the NRA it infuriates me when any antigun politician is embraced as a supporter of the 2nd Amendment. Keep up the good work!
