Gun Owners of America: Pelosi Plotting Trap for 2A Supporters

Nancy Pelosi NRA-ILA
Speaker Pelosi is an outspoken opponent of the Second Amendment.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun Owners of America released the following piece yesterday afternoon warning pro-gun voters of the perils of complacency. While some might feel the whole article is more click-bait than substance, it still contains plenty of good information. Plus, with the seemingly endless attacks on the Second Amendment, any and all positive news is welcome. Check out the full release below.

Without a Proactive Agenda, Pelosi’s Trap will be Difficult to Escape

November 3rd — presidential Election Day — is coming quick.

The consequences are immeasurable and it’s far from clear whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump will win. What is clear is that, if Biden prevails, our rights protected by the Second Amendment will continue to come under ferocious attack. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are scheming their most recent legislative gambit to enhance Biden’s chances and to gain control of the Congress. Please take action and encourage Senators to step forward with a pro-active, pro-gun agenda to combat Pelosi and Schumer’s impending anti-gun “wish-list.”

Pelosi and Schumer are scheming to hijack COVID-19 funding with anti-gun agenda

As a condition of passing the COVID-19 Phase 4 legislative relief package, Pelosi and Schumer are preparing to demand their liberal wish-list.

This list could include many items that would be of concern to conservative constitutionalists, generally. But of specific concern to gun owners is the gun control that Pelosi could try to sneak into a COVID-19 relief package — things like Red Flag gun confiscation orders, and more. Our federal lobbyists have been communicating with Senate Republican offices, and right now, it’s too early to tell where the anti-gun Democrat leadership is going to make their big push. Yes, there are anti-gun congressmen who are demanding that Red Flag gun confiscation orders be added to the relief bill. And so Republican Senators need to hear that this would be a non-starter.

But they also need to hear that grassroots gun owners oppose the big push by the anti-gun Left to use the relief package to change the “playing field” so that anti-gun Democrats will be elected in perpetuity. It’s no secret that gun grabbers desperately want to force all states to adopt mail-in ballots — a system that is already rife with fraud and which disproportionately benefits anti-gun Democrats. In fact, we know that Democrats have already tried (in an earlier COVID-19 relief package) to stick in Senator Elizabeth Warren’s plan to require that all states allow mail-in ballots.

If you’re familiar with the term “ballot harvesting,” this is precisely how anti-gun Democrats were able to take control of the Congress during the last election and put Pelosi in charge.

Mail-in ballots facilitate fraudulent voting, and as already stated, these always benefit the anti-gun side.

But politically, here’s the problem.

When Donald Trump rejects the Democrat wish-list agenda — and Pelosi uses that refusal to stall the COVID-19 relief package — the Democrats will say that he places “millionaires and billionaires” above the interests of poor victims of the coronavirus. Every media outlet in America will echo this narrative 24 hours a day.

But two can play this game.

Playing “defense only” loses every time

If the Democrats intend to inject their election-year agenda into the coronavirus debate, Republicans are fools if they don’t do the same.

If forced to vote on the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act and the Veterans’ 2nd Amendment Protection Act, anti-gun Democrats would lose their majority in the House and probably lose seats in the Senate.

GOA fought this same type of battle in 2013 — and won.

We worked with pro-gun Senators to offer the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act and the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act as amendments to Obama’s post-Sandy Hook gun control bill. Not only did we kill every word of gun control, but the Senate that killed UBCs picked up additional pro-gun seats in the next election. All it took was pushing forward a pro-active agenda, rather than sitting on defense.

For this reason, we need you to urge Senate Republicans to offer pro-active, pro-gun amendments to the latest COVID-19 package IF Speaker Pelosi attempts to do the same type of thing in the House of Representatives. Just as you can’t win a gunfight with a rock, you can’t beat a politically charged agenda with a politically dead one. And pro-gun Senators need to be reminded: nothing moves voters in November more effectively than the Second Amendment.

Give an inch and they take a mile!! Owning, having, carrying a gun should be treated like owning, having, and carrying a hammer or hat or any other item!!! When did we, the citizens or the USA, agree to being controlled? And why, it’s the governments job to control crime, not the citizens… controlling guns an knives is not reducing mass violence, only “controlling” one menthod of violence…….how about cars, bombs, machetes, dynamite, acid, etc?

The Brady Bill of 1993 was also a trap for gun owners, designed to appeal to their naive sense of civic duty and to sucker them into being willing to give up their 2nd, 4th, 5th, 9th, and 10th Amendment-guaranteed rights in order to obtain REVOCABLE GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PERMISSION to keep and bear arms — permission the federal government doesn’t have the lawful authority to issue or deny, and State governments are prohibited from issuing or denying. And the Brady Bill and its illegal NICS background checks have never prevented a crime or criminal access to a firearm in the history… Read more »

“Socialism cannot be rammed down the throats of an armed citizenry.” However, over the past fifty-odd years, the ‘Socialists’ have been chipping away, bite by bite, at our “unalienable rights” as guaranteed, not just by some ‘Constitution,’ by God!

It has never been about ‘safety’ with these anti-Liberty, anti-Freedom, anti-American corruptocrats, it is all about CONTROL!

Gdubb, except that the Republicans also do not believe in personal freedom, save a few. Just look at what they accomplish when they hold power. They could have easily passed Constitutional Carry, but did not. What we got instead is a president declaring “bump stocks” illegal and wanting ERPOs for those that they deem “dangerous”.

I do not give a tinker’s damn about “how” my support for the 2nd Amendment “comes across” to hoplophobes. It is time for sane, patriotic gun-owners to put a stop to the liberal BS. I do not care – not one bit – whether my attitude pleases or displeases insane, illogical “anti-gunners.” They do not have any practical or legal voice in the 2nd Amendment’s validity. If those liberals and politicians intend to continue pushing their ridiculousness, and thereby start a new civil war, let them have at it. But enough is enough!

Your only hope is to abandon CA! There is no returning that state to any level of common sense. The demographics of two cities LA/SF control the state. The other option, not likely to happen, is for the state to become at least two or better three states for the semi-sane folk to have a voice. If the corruptors had their wish CA and NY would determine ALL our presidential elections, you know to eliminate the electoral college. The latest word seems to be that the only reason CA is still ‘gaining’ population, even though nearly all the ‘common sense’… Read more »

I continue to read articles like this in my daily issue of Ammoland News and if it isn’t clear by now, gun owners will suffer greatly if Demorats are elected in Nov. I applaud GOA, of which I am a member, for their efforts in the fight against gun control. But one has to ask the question where are our other 2A supportive groups?? Where is our (gun owners) public relations campaign? Do we have any supporters in congress? All I continue to see are articles about Pelosi and Schumer and their anti 2A agenda. Where is our national voice?… Read more »

Under Section 241 and 242 alone, those libtard gungrabbers should have been imprisoned at the very least, or hung for violating the Constitutional Rights of citizens “under the color of law”. The States of Commiefornia and New Joke could see an uprising if the first domino were to fall. But who’s going to be first to push the head dummy domino, MaligNancy Pelosi over? What will it take to remove the head of the snake? Clearly she’s put herself out at the forefront of the fray. Will the nation’s Supreme Court? Sad to say, I doubt it.

Since the purpose of the Constitution is to limit the federal government, Pelosi has zero, nada, none, not even a smidgen of authority regarding privately owned arms. The phrase, “…shall not be infringed” is clear and means stfuabouddit. It WAS a right for which the states were not mentioned.

The Supreme court ruling on MacDonald vs. Chicago “incorporated” the 2nd Amendment which means it also applies to the states. It implied that the Supreme Court recognizes it as a natural human right, predating the Constitution by hundreds of years, conceptually thousands of years.

Before MacDonald v Chicago, you had the 14th Amendment, which SCOTUS has repeatedly said incorporates ALL of the Bill of Rights to the States.

@WB, it is true that SCOTUS has at times either reversed itself or issued conflicting opinions. And legal fiction cannot supplant the absolute Rights of the people even for a microsecond. The problem lies in that people are willing to suffer abuses, and suffer them far longer than what is appropriate. As for the 3rd Amendment?? I look at that as either a moot point or a dead amendment. Moot to the degree that the US military has absolutely no need to quarter active duty soldiers in the private residences of civilians, either in peacetime or at war. Dead to… Read more »

@WF, I was just telling you what the S. Ct. is doing. I did not indicate that I agree with the “Selective Incorporation Doctrine”.
Because the S.Ct. has not incorporated the Third Amendment against the states, the states could temporarily get away with quartering a National Guardsman in our houses, and for the same reason that the British did. So, it could be an important Right again, someday.
The Fourth Amendment probable cause requirement is still applicable to landlines. That is why I use a landline rather than a cellphone.

fair enough. But last I checked, a state had to agree to every provision in the Bill of Rights just to become a state, as the BoR is integral to the Constitution.

SCOTUS is not needed to ‘incorporate’ a Right to the states before it applies; it already applies by virtue of the state having applied to become a state.

The problem here is, politicians ignore the Supreme Law of the Land and are not punished for it by removal from office on the grounds of having violated their Oath, and likewise with Judges.

@WF, Yes, I think that this Chinese virus thing has given the general public the opportunity to see how badly politicians ignore the Constitution.
As to a territory becoming a state, it is true that the S. Ct plays no role in that. What Congress requires, however, of a territory, that is desirous of becoming a state, is particular to the “Enabling Act” written by that Congress. Thus Congress’ requirements of Ohio in that “Enabling Act” are different from a later Congress’ requirements in the “Enabling Act” for Utah.

, What I’m saying is, a state must accept the WHOLE Constitution and make it the supreme law there in order to be a state. No ‘enabling act’ from Congress is required for the Constitution and Bill of Rights to take effect once a state is admitted into the union. Therefore the entire Bill of Rights is automatically applicable to the States the instant they become part of the union. This is one nation and we have one US Constitution, not 50. Nor 50 separate “interpretations”.

And therein lies the problem. I believe a small group can get this pac rolling. I just need to find those who are knowlegable about such things who are willing to spend the time to get this off the ground. One or two victories at the ballot box makes for successful fundraising which makes for many more victories in the next election cycle. It’s getting it off the ground that is the hardest obstacle.

A Republican legislature can trample on your Rights just as easily as Democrats. My problem with the GOP is that they had 2 whole years to pass a boatload of pro-gun legislation and they sat on their hands the whole time. They had no excuse to justify their inaction. And Trump? He bans bump stocks (and that argument extends well past bumpstocks themselves – the ATF ruling endangers ALL semi-auto guns); he supports Red Flags, he talks down suppressors.
