Bankrolled Anti-Gun Propaganda Aims to Turn Texas Blue with Boost from Demographics

The gun-grabbers are coming to take it and our “pro-gun leaders” are still ignoring how. (Gonzales Flag replica at the Texas State Capitol/Daniel Mayer)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Gun safety groups planning to spend millions to turn Texas blue this year are rolling out their first round of ads, which say COVID-19 isn’t the only public health crisis facing the state,” the Houston Chronicle reveals. “Everytown for Gun Safety, the Michael Bloomberg-backed group that plans to spend $8 million in Texas this year, is launching $250,000 in digital ads targeting Republicans…”

“The effort follows a successful bid last year to help Democrats win control of the Virginia statehouse,” the story notes. “But the group plans to spend three times what it spent in Virginia on Texas races.”

Of lesser impact, but nonetheless significant, “BradyPAC … plans to spend more than $500,000 on elections in the state, more than it’s spending anywhere in the nation by far.” And Giffords is using its media platform to push its “slate of gun safety champions in Texas.”

Disregard for a moment that none of these groups are qualified to promote true gun safety. That’s just a euphemism they’ve adopted to mask what they’re really about, citizen disarmament in stages. They learned that lesson back when the National Coalition to Ban Handguns decided that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence sounded less authoritarian and more palatable to the ignorant (and thus manipulable) masses, and the Brady Campaign to Stop Gun Violence reached pretty much the same conclusion to back away from Handgun Control, Inc.

That and they wanted to ban more than handguns.

What the gun-grab groups and the Democrats they’re fronting for are counting on is one of the same key factors that turned Virginia blue: Changing demographics. Now comfortable enough about that reality to brag about it, The New York Times practically crowed about what enabled the political polar shift:

“How Voters Turned Virginia From Deep Red to Solid Blue…Unlike three decades ago, the residents are often from other places, like India and Korea. And when they vote, it is often for Democrats.”

The same holds true for Texas. While the mix of newcomers differs somewhat, their political similarities are remolding the electorate with two main groups bringing about what Barack Obama pegged “a fundamental transformation.”

“Texas, for example, has been the most popular destination for outbound Californians for more than a decade, consistently averaging about 60,000 to 70,000 new Golden Staters per year,” The Atlantic reported in January. “But now the state is at an inflection point, between its history as a ruby-red conservative stronghold and its future as a more mixed state with blue metros and red rural areas. In this context, the next SoCal family that U-Hauls into North Texas isn’t just some nice couple with different taste in barbecue; instead, they’re potentially the demographic straw that breaks the GOP’s back.”

They fouled their nests and now they're coming for yours.

And there’s another factor, as the Public Religion Research Institute documents.

“Demographic Changes in Texas Could Transform the State in 2020,” PRRI observes. “Texas has the fastest-growing population in the U.S., and the influx is not increasing the state’s traditionally white, Christian, Republican population. In 2018, for every white person who arrived in Texas, nearly nine Hispanics relocated to the state.”

We know how most Californians vote and the enabling effect that has on citizen disarmament edicts just by looking at the state’s politics. We also know that a Latino population that became the majority turned the Golden State blue.

That’s a population that according to all observable realities as well as all credible polls is overwhelmingly Democrat and anti-gun. That means “amnesty” and a “pathway to citizenship” for MILLIONS of foreign nationals in this country illegally (and legally, with CURRENT culturally suicidal policies) overwhelmingly favor Democrats and anti-gunners, which is why they’re all pushing for it. And that means if unchecked, it will result in supermajorities in state and federal legislatures that will then be able to pass whatever anti-gun edicts they want while confirming judges who will uphold those edicts and reverse gains made to date.

And yet in spite of this, national and state gun groups are virtually all silent on immigration, and assign “A” grades to politicians who may vote “right” on guns today, but whose “cheap labor” votes will end up undermining it all in the not-too-distant future.  It’s the single greatest threat but they don’t even want to admit it because … why?  They’ll be called racist and “progressives” won’t like them?  That train left the station long ago. In the meantime, they’re enabling the accelerated remaking of the Founders’ Republic into a socialist alien nation.

Besides, it’s not racist to point to numbers compiled and publicized (and even bragged about) from diverse sources, nor to call it like it is.

“But I know plenty of Hispanics who love guns!” is a frequent comment I see offered in rebuttal.  Me too. If 80% are anti-gun, that means 20% are not. It's demonstrable that there are immigrants who are superior defenders of the right to keep and bear arms than most gun owners I know, like the great right to arms champion Dr. Miguel Faria, a refugee from Castro’s Cuba who knows firsthand the dangers of where we are heading. That’s why my challenge specifically excludes anecdotes – we’re dealing with the effects of total numbers here.

I could make the same observation about Californians—I lived there for almost 30 years and had the honor to work closely with some of the most dedicated and hardest working RKBA warriors anywhere. They had to be—look at what they’re up against. But that doesn’t change the fact that most Californians will go out there and vote for Gavin Newsom and Nancy Pelosi and cheer the forced disarmament of their fellow citizens and neighbors.

Does observing that make someone “anti-Californian”?

Bottom line: Anyone who tells you gun owners should ignore immigration and exclusively focus on the “single-issue” is either ignorant, a liar, or both. Anyone who disagrees is free to take my challenge. No one has to date because they know they can’t – not without equivocating and trying to change the subject, which they know I’ll call them on.

So where does this leave us? Some call for outreach, and sure, by all means. But it’s a bit late with the way the culture is being terraformed and the national and state groups should have been doing that all this time. We also have to face the reality that resource-limited efforts they put forth are unlikely to result in any significant and timely attitude changes when pitted against generational cultural predispositions, 2A-hostile educational, political and media interests, and stepped-up marginalization/ostracism of “pro-gun” influencers by social media and search engine giants.

The other thing that’s way past due is for gun groups to recognize the single greatest threat to continued legal recognition of the right to keep and bear arms and so inform their members. If a politician can get an “A+” from NRA and an “F-” from Numbers USA, you’ll know the downstream risks he’s placing on gun owners are not being factored into his endorsement.  It makes no political sense to hide that. It makes no sense to not mobilize membership and warn someone setting gun owners up for a later fall that he can’t have it both ways, that his conflicting priorities have not gone unnoticed, and that his long-term commitment to us will affect our ongoing commitment to him.

Let me be clear. No matter how many demonrats move to Texas and, no matter what party occupies the governor’s office, we Texans will not just throw up our hands and turn in our guns like they did in Commie-fornia, New York, and New Jersey. We will stand up and fight for our rights, with force if necessary. Our Constitutional Rights are NOT negotiable. If they come for our guns, they will be identifying themselves as “domestic enemies” of the Constitution and, they will be putting a target on their own backs. If it comes to that, it’s going to… Read more »

I have given much thought to how the states can offset the discrepancy between the rural areas, and the cities. It seems the cities, which have the biggest population of the two, set the precedence. Unfortunately the city dwellers are usually Democratic sheep, hence the flock mentality.
Just a thought; What if the states had an Electoral College like when we vote for the President. It seems to me that it’s the only way to balance out the difference between the huge population of the cities, and the country.
If anyone has a better idea. say on.

In electoral college type system so many votes would go to the cities that you would have to win a fairly large fraction of their vote to stand a chance.

It is inevitable that gun elimination is in our future. The demographics demand that all patriots believe that. There will be two and only two choices offered to patriots: Surrender and obey or fight. Anyone who somehow believes that patriots can adjudicate, legislate, pray, vote, or anything else is naïve. In order to save the Constitution it must be fought for. The Constitution has wrote into it the means and authority to conduct that fight. If the patriots of the nation refuse to abide by their Constitution then surrender is inevitable.

Problem with blaming everything on fleeing libtards. Cali was conservative before the 1965 immigration act and was recoverable until the effects of Reagan’s and subsequent amnesties kicked in. I know lots of Calis who fled Cali to Texas, AZ, NM, NV, UT & FL, not one a libtard. All hard-core conservatives, far more conservative than the typical Republican where they moved (I was born in Texas, have many relatives there, and I’ve followed the transformation).

This brought lite to my eyes. Never thought of how many people coming from other countries would not like guns and therefore try and remove them from us. I thought they were supposed to assimilate and become part of America for witch it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible with “liberty” and justice for all.

Used to be we ran a “melting pot” in which people escaping s*holes came here to become actual Americans and adopt the American way of life that offered true prosperity. Now, they just want to be the same people, practice the same culture, and make the same choices that they did back in the old s*hole, only in a nicer neighborhood. And when the neighborhood starts to look like the old s*hole, they are dumbfounded as to why that happened.

We as a nation need to formulate a method of making sure illegals have no way of getting the ability to vote, and that if they do, the Supervisor of Elections and all employees of the district is held to a Felony level offense for allowing the registration. Democrats fight every viable method of verification for voting, that must stop also.

That won’t solve the problem until we abolish “birthright citizenship”. The fast-breeding invaders welcomed in and legalized by Reagan and later by Gingrich have now had large families that are “legal” voters. They naturally nearly ALL vote for amnesty, more invasion-occupation, and more deluge legal immigration, chain migration etc. There is no substitute for zero-tolerance full enforcement of non-suicidal immigration limits.

Although it’s a better-late-than-never approach, this is just another reason to close our borders and stop accepting immigrants. Contrary to the libtards’ narrative, we do NOT need them. Get the immigration system under control, then think about it.

It’s not just the libtard Democrats unfortunately. It’s also the vast majority of “Republicans” and the LOLibertarians. Kochwhores win virtually every primary targeted by Rove, Koch, Gingrich et ilk, because gun rights leaders refuse to recognize the problem and act accordingly.

Terrific hate dog whistle article AmmoLand !!! Gun safety laws work. America has the worst per capita gun violence rate in the developed world. Fighting against gun safety is exactly the kind of behavior one expects from an unsafe, dangerous and angry gun owner OR someone who has a vested interest in keeping the gun and ammo marketplace in America unrestricted and unaccountable. By selling guns and ammo to the good guys AND the bad guys, the gun industry and its backers, like AmmoLand ensure that America will continue to be unsafe, dangerous and filled with shooters looking for an… Read more »

“Gun violence rate”… when you cherry pick the artificial statistic, you automatically lose the debate. Why don’t you move to Hong Kong? No, wait — they have the highest rate of rickshaw deaths in the world, that can’t be a good choice. I have it — move to Rwanda. They recently had a national genocide… but it was all done with machetes and not very many guns at all, so therefore a great place to live.

Unfortunately, voting is democracy theatre. When it threatens to actually affect something, the “controlled opposition” simply gives you a choice of two tyrants — or, like they did recently in Virginia, just declines to run opposition candidates at all. You can only vote yourself into socialism, getting yourself out takes stronger methods.

Personally voting is not enough. Not by a long shot. Saving the USA peacefully at this point will require enormous sacrifice: Voluntarism, donations until it hurts, organization, and get out the vote. Many conservatives live in states and districts so wrecked by immigration that their vote has no effect whatsoever. I still live in California, for the next few months. I donate at least $2,000 a year directly to viable campaigns, and another $1,000 a year to hard core organizations. 90% of my donations go to campaigns in other states that are not yet irrevocably lost.

I’m not saying don’t vote if we live in districts where it makes a difference. I am pointing out that conservatives have been urging each other to vote in their own districts for decades while neglecting winnable races in other districts and states, and the result has been the steady loss of the USA, to the point that President Trump, well meaning as he is, is probably only a reprieve.

But he’s blowing it bigly, failing to honor his promise to cut legal immigration to America-First levels. Instead, he’s expanding visas, exempting the Fortune 500 from his recent “cuts” — which the Center for Immigration Studies reports was actually an increase — importing “cheap labor” and ChiCom “investors” even with 30 million Americans recently unemployed. He foolishly disbanded the vote fraud commission and proceeded to sabotage true conservatives like Kris Kobach and Steve Bannon, so now… Read more »

Correct. The war against the Second Amendment is simply one front of many pursued by progressives and leftists against our Constitutional Republic. This has been true since the progressive movement first declared our Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights null and void in the 1880’s. They have persisted on this track ever since. Administrations such as both Roosevelts, Wilson, Carter, clinton and Sotero have all lead the direct attack on ALL Natural Rights based arguments and they have been aided by fifth columnists like “liberal” Republicans, and country club Republicans. The ranks allied against all of our enumerated rights… Read more »

The so-called laws against ALL of the amendments must be annulled. No one Amendment is superior to any other when looking at the totality of the Bill of Rights. They are all mutually supporting and essential to guarantee liberty be protected by government. If they fail that purpose our government is null and void.

@GunFun – I have always hated the concept of single issue voting. However at this point threats to our basic rights are so high, that gun rights have become a litmus test. A candidate unacceptable on gun rights is unacceptable and I won’t look any further. Unfortunately even in Texas there are not always any acceptable candidates – forcing me to did deeper to determine who’s the least evil candidate. In that case I use scoring with approximately weighting of 30% “assault weapons”, 25% RFL, 20% NFA issues, 20% general and other firearms positions, 5% nonfirearms issues. So gun rights… Read more »
