Colorado ––(Ammoland.com)- You might think that with Republicans in control of the US House of Representatives there would be no way ANY gun control legislation could reach the floor.

But sadly we are already beginning to see so-called “conservative champions” folding to pressure from the anti-gun media to sell-out gun owners.

Former Vice Presidential candidate, Congressman Paul Ryan, has stated that he would support legislation that bans private sales at gun shows.

In the House, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, along with the help of Rep. Scott Rigell (VA), Patrick Meehan (PA) and others, have stated openly that they will work together with anti-gun Democrats from Maryland and New York to tighten restrictions on private firearms sales and expand background checks.

Possibly even more upsetting has been Senator Tom Coburn's willingness to work alongside anti-gunner Chuck Schumer (NY) to propose “bi-partisan” anti-gun legislation in the Senate.

Make no mistake, so-called “expansion” of background checks is little more than a blatant attempt by anti-gunners to register all firearms and gun owners in America.

That is why Representatives Steve Stockman (TX-36) and Paul Broun (GA-10) have drafted a letter to Speaker Boehner and the Republican leadership urging them to require the support of the majority of Republican members in the House before bringing any anti-gun bills to the floor.

This so-called “Hastert Rule” would mean that 117 Republicans would have to support a particular bill before it had any chance of getting a floor vote, not just the support of the anti-gun elitist in leadership.

Gun owners are under attack from all sides . . .

  • The Feinstein Gun Ban. The UN Small Arms Treay.
  • Unconstitutional Executive Orders from President Obama.
  • Increased intimidation of gun dealers from the ATF under the guidance of a radical Attorney General.

Anti-gun fat cats like Michael Bloomberg spending millions of dollars to produce misleading surveys and TV ads supporting dozens of bills in both the House and Senate that seek to ban hundreds of firearms outright.

The list goes on and on.

Now we as defenders of the Second Amendment have to watch our backs from the very people who were elected to fight against such encroachments.

With the House firmly in control by the Republicans, it is an absolute disgrace that such a letter from Stockman and Broun even needs to be written in the first place.

Thankfully for you and I, we have a few good men left in Congress.

It just goes to show that at the end of the day (with a few exceptions) that politicians will only do what is right if they are pressured into it.

Again and again it has been demonstrated that gun owners' greatest allies are themselves.

That is why I am asking you to ask your Congressman to openly support the Stockman-Broun letter to Speaker Boehner. Call today!

Tell them that if they really support your rights then you need to see action!

Signing the Stockman-Broun letter is a good first step in signifying support for the Second Amendment.

For Freedom,
Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

    Yes, Obama has this new thing going with his wine and dinning representatives. “A meal for a Deal!” Don’t our votes come cheap these days? We can’t vote him out but we can them. 2014 is going to be settle up time and bring in a new batch who know what they stand for and what they don’t. If they have to think about it, they don’t stand for us.

    Agreed. Anyone who support the bans or restrictions must need to be replaced….

    Its a shame our leaders,if you classify them that, what a joke, would stand up for our rights
    instead of using tragic events for their purposes or to completely disregard our constitution
    is non-American. I, B H Obama,swear to uphold…. Uphold what? Not our constitution thats for sure..
    American is not the true America anymore sorry to say, if it was we would not be having this
    discussion. And I am beginning to feel that my service to the country and risking my life was for no purpose.

    Background checks are done most of the time, with the exception of private sales. If they can figure a way to exempt family and close friends, there may be a compromise, but registrations, fingerprinting, bans, etc are not the answer to the problems at hand. The rifles in question are responsible for a fraction of violent crimes compared to blunt objects. Start by enforcing the laws on the books now. 13 convictions on illegal purchases out of 76,000, is horrible. Keep violent offenders in prison longer, with no time off for good behavior. An third strike offender can go back… Read more »

    Republicans or Democrats?
    Two sides of the same illegal coin.
    All in the pockets of the wealthy Elite.
    Have been so since JFK was murdered in a coup.

    Recognize that.

    The Constitution and the Second Amendment are not at issue. That theme is being hyped to exploit emotion. Think about it clearly. What is being debated through the political process, is how to do something responsible for public safety. It looks like there is the most support for improving background checks. Beyond that, the debate is all over the map. If conservatives would support increased funding for mental health services and tightening involuntary commitment standards, that would be a help. The need for better background checks comes from the results of cutting and blocking reform in those areas, over the… Read more »

    WE are lving in a post constitutional america. The constitution only means what they say it does and they make it up as they go along. With the election of the Kenyan for a second term I believe it is very close to being over…if the democrats win the House in 2014 we are done.

    If the people that we put in office, finds they don’t have the “Back-Bone” to live up to the Oath they took, when we voted them in; They need to turn-in the Key for that office and walk away. Anything other would be Treason in degrading our Constitutional Rights.

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy has revealed that the Republicans do not control the House!

    In fact, under Rep. Boehner’s “leadership”, it is now controlled by a group of “moderate/liberal” Republican representatives joined with the united Democratic representatives! McCarthy has stated that the House would pass gun control and immigration bills. He clearly meant that conservatives should shut the hell up!

    I’ve been a conservative all my life and at one point, when I was hired as a deputy sheriff, took an Oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. I’ve never rescinded that Oath, and I particularly believe in and hold the 2nd Amendment as the “meat and muscle” which holds the Constitution together and assures my children and grand-children that there will be a Constitution tomorrow and for centuries to come. But, unfortunately there are some conservatives in Washington that are close to breaking their Oaths of Office and committing TREASON by allowing and/or… Read more »

    I think the Republicans have demonstrated a disgusting level of cowardice over the last 40 years. They seem so desperate to get the MSM to like them.

    I have voted primarily Republican for most of my life, because I agreed w/them in most areas. I will never become a Democrat. I might vote for a conservative Democrat (oxymoron?) if he actually believed in conservative values. I am VERY disappointed in supposedly conservative Republicans that are bowing under the pressure of the Liberals & are turning traitor to their formerly held views. Maybe we could convince some Dems how wrong their part’s stand is on so many issues & vote their conscience, even if it means standing up to the anti-gun, pro-homosexual stand of their party. We will… Read more »
