Save Republicans from Themselves & Knee-Jerk Gun Control – Act NOW!

Save Republicans from Themselves & Knee-Jerk Gun Control – Act NOW!

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- A couple of mentally defective losers decide they want to be famous as killers, and Republican politicians are once again responding by shooting themselves – and their party – in the foot. If they don’t get themselves under control in a hurry, they are going to do irreparable damage to their chances in 2020.

President Trump is offering suggestions on how to pass gun control laws and particularly pushing deadly “red flag” laws. Republicans in the House and Senate are pledging to vote for various gun control laws if they are brought to a vote. Governor Ducey in Arizona has revived his “pre-crime disarmament,” STOP bill that helped kill the political aspirations of several promising Republicans in 2018, and the list goes on.

Your action is needed now. Republicans, from Trump on down, need to hear from you immediately. They need to hear from you in email, phone calls, on their social media accounts, and at any live events during their August recess.

Don’t wait. Contact them now. Remind them that only foolish politicians react to events, based on emotion and their immediate perception of public sentiment. Tell them that they should be sticking to the principles that brought them to the party. Appeasing people who aren’t ever going to vote for them, regardless of what they do – short of switching parties – is just dumb.

Alienating a large segment of their base, that was going to vote for them, and work for their campaigns, and bring their families along, is even dumber.

Gun control laws didn’t stop lunatics before, and they won’t stop lunatics in the future. Criminalizing private sales and transfers of firearms was a bad idea last week and last year, and it’s still a bad idea.

Taking guns away from someone because someone else said they were crazy and dangerous – rather than taking the crazy dangerous person away from all potentially harmful objects and getting them some professional help – was a dangerous, unconstitutional idea last week and last year, and it’s still a dangerous, unconstitutional idea.

Banning scary-looking firearms that are safely owned by millions of Americans and which function the same as guns that have been readily available for 100 years, didn’t work between 1994 and 2004, and it won’t work in the future – and those millions of American gun owners aren’t going to put up with attempts to take them away.

Mass shootings and mass murders are terrible tragedies that make all sane people sad, angry, and frustrated. Passing unconstitutional laws that won’t and can’t prevent such tragedies, is no sort of rational response.

Contact your elected servants today. Reach out to them via every means at your disposal, and let them know that you and your family recognize that they are under extreme pressure to “do something,” but that pushing gun control laws – expanded background checks, “red flag” laws, “assault weapons” bans, or any other infringement on the right to arms – will cost them and their party your votes. Remind them that many GunVoters were already suspicious of Republicans, but we're going to support the party as a blocking move against anti-rights Democrats, but Republicans rushing to gun control will kill that tenuous arrangement, resulting in many GunVoters foregoing the elections, and seriously hurting Republican chances.

Call the Congressional Switchboard at 202-224-3121. Find your Senators and representatives at www.Senate.gov and www.House.gov, and send them messages, then find their local office numbers and call those. Find them on Facebook and Twitter, and link them to this article. Finally, share this article on all social media and with all of your friends who value their rights.

The U.S. doesn’t have a gun problem. The U.S. has a crazy problem. Gun laws won’t fix that.

Tell’em what they’re trying to do is un-constitutional anyway! Silence from gun owners will be considered consent.

GOA Action: Signatures needed!!! 2A Campaign>>>> Things have taken a turn for the worse since we asked you to email the White House… …NOW, SENATE REPUBLICANS ARE UNITING BEHIND LINDSEY GRAHAM’S BILL THAT WOULD EFFECTIVELY *END* YOUR 2A RIGHTS. This Red Flag Gun Confiscation bill, based on a prototype drafted by the anti-gun Giffords Organization, would send SWAT teams to your door to steal your guns with NO REAL DUE PROCESS WHATSOEVER. This is our promise to you — we will fight until the very last vote is cast to destroy this atrocious bill, but we’re going to need voters… Read more »

Jeff, The U.S. doesn’t have a gun problem. The U.S. has a Democrat problem. Calling and writing your representatives won’t fix that.

@Dave in Fairfax: You are absolutely right!!!!! We have a RINO problem also! They look and resemble the backside of the Ass Party with tails up exposing the problematic gaping hole and prolapsed rectum.

It’s just not the RINOS. Why does everyone blame the RINOS? Look at the rest of the GOP. Did they stand up as a party to defend Kavanah during his hearings? Nope. Did they stand up protesting the obviously blatant stealing of the mid-term elections with dead and illegal voters? Nope. I am sorely disappointed with the GOP. Hell, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch has done more to expose the corruption in DC in 6 months than the entire 2 1/2 years the GOP held both Houses. The GOP is a joke as far as I am concerned. They are… Read more »

There is only one political party in washington, that being big government. The democrats and republicans are merely factions of that party, engaged in kabuki theater to distract the voters from bureaucratic encroachment on our Constitution.

@Truth: You like too many others here on Ammoland are taking your anger out on the wrong people. My comment was meant to be short and sweet as it were. Your’s is philosophical blindside and neither short.
The GOP hung themselves long ago with a Woodrow Wilson slow choke rope.
You go focus that anger properly now at the right people.

@Jeff Knox: Nice response.

Wasn’t taking anything out on you Whitesfyre. Just posting and yes I am angry as I watch those political fools in DC sidestep the issues, piss on our Constitution and the oath they took to defend it. Voting doesn’t seem to matter any longer as we get false conservatives into office. Am a primary care-giver father to a child with life-threatening conditions and worry about life after I am gone. At 68, myself with some health issues, I had hoped to finally live in a country where communists cannot affect the politicians but am wrong. Am uncertain as to what… Read more »
