Relentless & Well-Funded – Not The IRS The Gun Control Lobby
Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- You know, those rats that come out of the woodwork every time a lone nut decides to take personal anger out on innocent bystanders?
I’ve spent my fair share of time on Capitol Hill, and let me tell you, the gun control lobbyists have their tentacles wrapped around scores of Congressional offices right now.
They’ve been particularly active the last few months after the lone gunman shootings in Arizona and Europe.
And now, anti-gun Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy is saying that “there should be a lot of shame” on the part of gun owners.
Trust me, I’m not ashamed to exercise my Second Amendment rights, and no amount of browbeating from a gun-grabbing Congresswoman is going to change my mind.
If I have anything to say about it, my Second Amendment rights will not be taken away because of the actions of two crazed individuals. And you shouldn’t let the gun grabbers take your gun rights away either.
That’s why I’ve put together petitions to your Congressman and Senators urging them to vote “NO” on the Gun-Grabbers’ Magazine Ban Bill (H.R. 308) — or any other similar bill. But first, let me tell you what I know personally about the gun control lobby.
I’ve been fighting against these guys for more than 20 years. If you were to walk right past one of the gun control lobbyists on Capitol Hill, you might think nothing of it.
But let me be clear: they have dangerous, liberty-crushing intentions. I know them like the back of my hand. And whenever a tragedy occurs anywhere in the world, they renew their push for gun control.
They have no better friend on Capitol Hill than anti-gun Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. As I write this, one of the biggest domestic threats to your gun rights on Capitol Hill is McCarthy’s Magazine Ban Bill.
If H.R. 308 is passed, the sale or transfer of firearm magazines with a capacity of more than ten rounds would be ILLEGAL. But that’s not all. My staff has dug into McCarthy’s Magazine Ban Bill, and there is more — a lot more.
Do you already own a handgun, rifle or shotgun with a magazine that holds more than ten rounds?
For now, the law says that you are “legal.” If the gun control lobby gets their way, you can’t ever sell it, give it away or pass it down to your kids. (New Jersey has passed this exact law for magazines greater than 15 rounds)
In fact, Congresswoman McCarthy’s bill would turn widows into instant FELONS if their late husbands possessed a 12-round magazine!
You know, people talk on Capitol Hill. In fact, they talk a lot. I’m not just referring to the elected Representatives and Senators; I’m talking about the people who talk “behind the scenes.”
What I’m hearing on Capitol Hill should strike fear into us all: President Obama recently met with House Republicans to discuss McCarthy’s Magazine Ban Bill.
Yes, that’s right, House Republicans, many with so-called “pro-gun” credentials, have discussed a deal to get H.R. 308 passed.
It’s all just a game being played by the White House. They know they will take whatever gun control they can get out of the Republican-controlled House . . .
. . . then unleash their BIG GUNS in the Senate, where a full roster of eager, left-wing gun control lieutenants will launch attack after attack on our gun rights by attaching anti-freedom amendments to the bill.
That's why I need you to contact your representatives IMMEDIATELY.
If you and I don’t stop President Obama and the gun grabbers dead in their tracks — right now — we risk losing even more of our rights.
In fact, once the bill reaches the Senate floor, my sources on Capitol Hill are telling me dozens of amendments are already in the works, including:
- *** Mandatory waiting periods, and expensive, drawn-out “psychological screenings” designed to force ALL law-abiding citizens to get government approval before purchasing a firearm;
- *** A TOTAL ban on all private sales under the guise of “closing the gun-show loophole”;
- *** A new so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban, targeting ALL semi-automatic rifles and shotguns — which, unlike the Clinton ban, will NEVER expire;
- *** A National Concealed Carry “Standard” — designed to make it even more difficult for law-abiding citizens to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families from murderers like Jared Loughner.
Don’t get tricked by this one — this “standard” is nothing more than the feds forcing states to slow down the approval of concealed carry permits, and make the remaining permits null-and-void in most areas!
And with the full backing of the White House and the anti-gun media, you and I can’t take anything for granted. After all, just their efforts alone will be difficult enough to overcome.
But what if — God forbid — there’s another criminal rampage? You and I both know President Obama and his anti-gun pals will rush to exploit it. That’s why you and I must strangle this monster in its crib NOW before it’s too late.
The staff here at NAGR is taking nothing for granted — we know how these left-wing anti-gunners work. They are going to fire all the ammunition that they have to get any gun control that they can.
Complicating NAGR’s efforts to stop gun control in Washington are prominent Republicans (actually, they are RINO’s) like U.S. Senator Richard Lugar, former Vice President Dick Cheney and Homeland Security Chairman Peter King have already voiced support for additional gun controls.
These so-called “pro-Second Amendment” Republicans sicken me. One day they say they support “gun rights,” then the next day there they are calling for “reasonable restrictions” on our freedoms, back-slapping and hand-shaking with their left-wing accomplices.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I believe “shall not be infringed” MEANS WHAT IT SAYS.
And I believe the LAST thing pro-gun folks should be doing is cozying up to the anti-gun crowd and cutting deals — especially with President Obama in the White House. Instead, you and I must do everything in our power to stop the anti-freedom plans of the gun grabbers.
There is absolutely no way we can succeed without your help.
I am launching the National Association for Gun Rights’ three-part plan to fight back, including:
- Contacting ten million Americans through U.S. mail, email and our state-of-the-art telemarketing campaign;
- Launching an all-out public relations campaign to include op-eds, blogs, talk radio briefings, press conferences and media interviews where I’ll gladly lock horns with anti-gun extremists in defense of our Second Amendment rights;
- An all-out media blitz to include hard-hitting internet and radio ads calling on KEY Congressmen and Senators to vote NO on H.R. 308 or any similar bill. I’ve already begun to hear from tens of thousands of gun rights activists, and my staff and I are generating opposition through the email, mail and phones.
But this must be a sustained campaign against anti-gun legislators in Washington. You and I must keep up the pressure.
For more than two years now, you and I have defied the naysayers and pushed back against President Obama and his left-wing gun grabbing allies in the Congress.
But this Magazine Ban scheme could prove to be the toughest battle you and I have ever been involved in.
P.S. The gun-grabbers’ goal is to sneak the Magazine Ban Bill (H.R. 308) through the U.S. House with as little fanfare as possible and then load it down with anti-gun amendments once it reaches the Senate.
And now news reports show many supposedly pro-gun Republicans and even “gun rights groups” are considering backing the scheme!
