New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- If there's one thing that defines New Jersey gun owners, it's the courage and tenacity to repeatedly face the “David and Goliath” battles and win against impossible odds, when most everyone else would have given up.
The upcoming Governor's race on November 7 2017 will be the ultimate test of our mettle. Anti-gun Wall Street mega-millionaire Phil Murphy, an unknown who came out of left field, bullied and bought his way to the Democratic nomination. He cleared the field of serious, well-established candidates by creating the illusion that his anointing was inevitable. Democratic party leaders and candidates folded like a house of cards under that hallucination, abandoning years of planning and posturing, and handing Murphy the nomination without a real fight. The illusion became a self-fulfilling prophecy in the primary.
Now Murphy is trying to pull off that same magic trick in the general election – collapse his opposition with the mere illusion that his victory is inevitable and unstoppable. But his election is not inevitable, and he is not unstoppable. There are one million gun owners and sportsmen in New Jersey. If every one of us votes against Murphy, he loses. If every one of us also gets friends and family to vote against Murphy, he loses big.
The upcoming election will hinge on what we as a community do in the face of what looks like an impossible fight. If we swallow the propaganda and it shuts us down from taking the actions necessary to defeat Murphy, then we hand him his self-fulfilling prophecy, and gun owners reap the whirlwind. But if we remain steadfast in the face of overwhelming odds, if we unfailingly take the actions necessary to win despite the predictions of pollsters and pundits, and if we remember that we are fighting for the precious gift of Freedom, which comes from Above, then we surely can and will win.
Right now NRA and ANJRPC are organizing one of the most important grassroots efforts in New Jersey history, with personnel currently on the ground to help get out the vote statewide and in targeted races.
But our real strength comes from members and volunteers like you. We are putting out the call for you to stand and fight with us, to help New Jersey gun owners once again stand strong in the face of impossible odds and make the key difference, and to pursue victory like our freedom depends on it – because it does. Answer that call today by contacting NRA-ILA Grassroots Field Coordinator Christian Ragosta at 703-638-8257 or [email protected] and find out how you can help.
Please watch for upcoming critical email alerts highlighting key legislative races, candidate ratings & endorsements, and other crucial information leading up to November 7.
