Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- You have let Washington know that you oppose giving Barack Obama a blank check until September 30, 2015 and, in doing so, that you oppose Congress setting gun policy in a long-term, Harry Reid-drafted appropriations bill.

And Washington has heard you, loud and clear.

According to Neil Munro of the Daily Caller, House Speaker John Boehner is now faced with “snowballing opposition” to his plan of passing a ten-month carte blanche funding bill for the government, crafted by Harry Reid on the Senate side and by a House that has a lot more Democrats than it will have after January 6.

The Boehner abomination is called the “Cromnibus” — a combination of the initials for “continuing resolution” (CR) and “omnibus.” This monstrosity would do nothing to stop the implementation of the anti-gun ObamaCare law (which Republicans said they opposed).

And, while the “Cromnibus” will probably stop some gun-related Obama abuses (such as implementation of the UN Arms Trade Treaty), it is not expected to address problems like ATF’s routine copying of a dealer’s 4473’s in connection with a routine annual inspection. Nor will it defund much of Obama’s anti-gun agenda.

Is it any wonder that liberal anti-gun Democrats like Rep. James Moran (D-VA) have embraced the Boehner approach?

Now, in a move that is the political equivalent of treason, Boehner is countering hemorrhaging support among Republicans by asking Nancy Pelosi to provide the votes necessary for passage. Given that the “Cromnibus” will define virtually all government discretionary spending and policy for the next ten months, this is like turning over control of Congress to the Democrats for 37.5% of a congressional term.

But pro-gun forces are countering Boehner’s perfidy tit-for-tat. The Chairman of Gun Owners of America has promised that GOA will score support of the Boehner-Pelosi bill as an anti-gun vote.

Said GOA’s Tim Macy: “If we had wanted Democrats to control Congress, we would have voted for them. Instead, we give Boehner a 247-vote majority, only to have him cede control to Pelosi, Reid, and Obama over every important decision for the next ten months.”

GOA has even raised the issue of whether a Speaker who has more regard for the minority than his own caucus should continue in his position.

ACTION: Contact your Representative. Tell him or her that support of the Boehner-Pelosi deal will be considered an anti-gun vote.

The fact that Anyone still believes that those in D.C. are there for your benefit shows how ignorant the majority in this country remain. year after year you “Vote” in or For your team of criminals thinking that hey will rush to serve you – and yet year after year they prove you wrong and prove how inept they are.

And the blissful ignorance continues on.

Ohio should recall RINO Boehner. In the meantime, Repugnicans in the House should remove him as Leader: time for a revolt…IF Repugnicans have the cojones.
