“An increasing number of lawmakers in both parties appear willing to compromise on high-capacity magazines, the one component of gun control legislation that seems palatable to Republicans…” – Newsmax, Feb. 18, 2013 GOP, Dems Inch Toward Compromise on Magazine Limits
Wisconsin –-(Ammoland.com)- Dear Patriot,
Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan (R), who fancies himself a champion for Wisconsin sportsmen, has become the anti-gun lobby's leading cheerleader.
In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published Tuesday, Ryan said gun show loopholes are a ‘very reasonable' issue and that it's ‘obvious‘ it should be addressed. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said this week that he is open to closing the loophole that allows weapon purchases at gun shows without a background check…” – washingtonpost.com, Jan. 29, 2013, Paul Ryan open to closing gun-show loophole
Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan wants to close a “loophole” that you and I know better as the Second Amendment.
“Universal Background Checks” is the latest Washington buzzword. But what they really mean is, “Universal Gun Registration.”
Paul Ryan and Republicans in the House and Senate are working with noted anti-gunners like Senator Chuck Schumer and Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy to fashion “reasonable” gun control legislation.
Schumer and McCarthy are enlisting accomplices like Republican Senators Tom Coburn and John McCain and Congressmen Eric Cantor and Scott Rigell to achieve “bi-partisan” anti-gun legislation.
Interesting friends Paul Ryan is keeping, don't you think?
Senator Schumer recently said: “I think you're going to see . . . in the next week or two a proposal that has broad support for universal background checks . . . And I think you're going to find much broader support than we ever imagined.”
Make no mistake, Schumer isn't just talking about background checks, he's talking about mass registration of all firearms and gun owners in America.
This isn't about public safety, it's about government tracking gun owners through Form 4473. Paul Ryan has been in Washington D.C. too long – and seems to think that “compromise” is “success.” You and I know that “compromise” is just a fancy way to say “surrender.”
Republicans like Ryan who try to appease the anti-gunners miss a fundamental point: The anti-gunners won't be satisfied until they've banned ALL firearms from civilian ownership.
Registration-via-background check is just the first step.
Appeasing the anti-gunners will only speed up their next assault on our rights. Paul Ryan needs to hear from gun owners. Tell him to stop compromising your gun rights for political expediency.
Tell Paul Ryan to stand united with gun owners and oppose ALL gun control, and all attempts to implement so-called “universal background checks.”

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. Visit www.wisconsingunowners.org
