CCRKBA To Everytown: ‘Texas is Not for Sale!’

Texas Flag NRA-ILA
Having helped destroy the Second Amendment in VA, and partially in FL, Everytown is setting its sights on Texas. IMG NRA-ILA

Bellevue, WA -(AmmoLand.com)- Reacting to reports that Everytown for Gun Safety, the group founded by anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg is planning to spend millions of dollars to flip the Texas Legislature, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms warned, “The Lone Star State is not for sale, Mike.”

“He couldn’t buy his way into the White House,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “so Michael Bloomberg’s surrogates at Everytown are trying to buy the Texas Legislature in Austin. Apparently Bloomberg has forgotten how Texans love their liberty and independence, and how they will fight to protect it.”

Published reports say Everytown’s political arm will spend at least $8 million to turn the Lone Star State blue in November. Gottlieb calls that a warning signal for grassroots Second Amendment activists across the country.

“Last month,” he recalled, “CNN reported that a ‘Bloomberg-aligned’ group was targeting 13 states to register more than 100,000 young voters in an effort to win congressional and legislative seats for anti-gunners. Texas was one of those states, so this big money effort must be taken seriously.”

Other states mentioned in the voter registration scheme were Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

“The Citizens Committee is calling on all grassroots activists, not just in Texas but in every other state, to organize and fight back,” Gottlieb said. “Everytown has the backing of a billionaire, but dollars don’t vote, people do.

“Last year,” he recalled, “Michael Bloomberg spent tens of millions of dollars in a failed run for the presidency, and he never got out of the last place. His gun-control message didn’t resonate, so instead of trying to win support, his lobbying group is now trying to buy it, one state at a time.”

“It’s time to remind Bloomberg’s Everytown group that freedom and the Constitution are not for sale,” Gottlieb said.

Boarderline Sedition and Treason By their words, along with their actions, these politicans and society throwbacks need to be held acountable for both. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the individual right to keep and bear arms. It was ratified on December 15, 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights. Criminal liberal Socialist/Communist/Marxists in Congress & the public sector are endangering… Read more »

Don’t mess with Texas! If Texas ever turns blue the entire country is gone. We, conservatives and constitutionalists, need to go on the offensive in places such as California, New York, and Illinois. We should work toward turning blue states into red states.

@JohnBored. I worry about Texas. Austin, Houston, Dallas and Waco, if they go blue can the rest of the state hold the line? Not sure of the demographics and it’s just an opinion but the population centers of Texas seem to be going liberal. I really hate the idea but we probably should be prepared for it. Look at Virginia, who (looking from the outside) would have thought Virginia would become a “Liberal” state (at least their central government.) I hope they pull that one back but we will see. I think you are spot on, we need to be… Read more »

That’s ironic. Gottlieb is one of the “gun rights leaders” heavily responsible for assisting the mass immigration that flipped Cali, NV & OR, flipping VA, soon to flip TX & FL. He refuses to acknowledge or do anything about deluge migration as an irreversible factor that * Jacks up cost of “real estate, paves everything, crams us into stack-&-pack “housing” & high density “living” in which gun rights do not survive. Put people in each other’s hair and they WILL control each other. See every high-density country on earth. * Destroys liberty, gun rights, quality of life, real wages, national… Read more »

Yes Gottlieb and 2AF don’t directly meddle with the immigrationissue. They are narrowly focussed on our rights related to firearms and other weapons of defense.
If YOU want to do something to stop or slow illegal immigration into the US< why are YOU not on the frontlines instead of taking a big whnge on a gun forum that DOES often deal with that important issue? Remember the old hippie saying?: If YIO aren't part of the solution, YOU are part of the PROBLEM. Man up or shut up.

Hey LOLibertarian Gottlieb Shill, “Uncle Nico”: Projection-deflection-prevarication noted. Gottlieb DOES directly and indirectly meddle with immigration. Like all LOLibertarians, Gottlieb’s “good friend” Grover al Nor’Qu’ist prioritizes treasonous deluge immigration globalism over 2A, teaming up with Bloomberg to elect gun grabbers who support his immigration treason. Gottlieb protects Norquist, therefore Gottlieb is directly and indirectly sabotaging 2A by prioritizing immigration over his allegedly sacred single-issue 2A. As to another BIG LIE: The NRA is NOT, nor is it supposed to be single-issue. The NRA’s charter and bylaws require its officers and board to support the ENTIRE Constitution and the USA.

Actually, in either 86 or 87 I took a college history, participatory class dealing with this very subject. It was divided into several countries and each was given certain assets, unequally divided. These assets were money, military, and immigrants. Every class, we traded these assets, much like the state dept. does now. As luck would have it, our country started out with the most of all assets. By the end of the trimester we got our asses handed to us, because the other countries had a bully to thwart. Truth be told we could have done better in our negotiations,… Read more »

I find it interesting how people who don’t like being called on the carpet for what they say have latched onto “ad hominem attack” as a defense against the truth being told. And it is not just on this site that this is occurring.
Perhaps people should take time to ponder these words, “You brood of vipers! How can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” Those words come from a very good source.

Here’s the problem. Your little gang of trolls protecing your chatroom commando sandbox doesn’t call me on the carpet for the issues raised, but rather to avoid discussing those issues, deflecting, and arguing with your own strawmen, just like the democrats and leftists you emulate.

Like leftists, you get foul mouthed in public, then you censor directly or whine to a “moderator” when you get back a tenth of what you put in, and actual issue content is suppressed.

Like leftist cowards.

Bloomberg, Soros, Gates, and the rest of the “Billionaire Communists” are a PLAGUE on America! They want to turn the United States of America into a communist country with people like them telling every American citizen how to live their life every day! Time to cut the rot out of American society and get rid of these son-of-a-bitches! The way to do this is to NEVER VOTE AGAIN FOR ANYONE WITH A (D) OR AN (I) BEHIND THEIR NAME!!!

Texas has been a solid red state for a long time but Austin (Texas’ version of San Francisco) has been blue for decades and is only getting bluer (more blue?). Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and El Paso are at present purple and getting more blue every day. Liberals are moving to Texas from states that are blue and already screwed up, or from red states where they couldn’t change them, with a mission to turn Texas blue. Other red states are seeing the same thing happening but to a lesser extent. I don’t blame the illegals as much for this… Read more »

First off, I deplore the comments of the three morons preceding me. This forum belongs to persons interested in gun issues who are more respectable. As for Texas and some other states being in the crosshairs of well funded anti-gun activism, we see here why immigration is a critical issue in this country. We have seen, during the last forty years, a concerted effort by leftists, who have become the nucleus of the Democratic Party, succeed in flipping such red states as New Jersey, California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Mexico and some others, into blue states. How? Through immigration. I am… Read more »

You are 100% correct. See http://www.history.com/news/immigration-act-1965-changes. This was the beginning of the fall of the Republic. You can thank the Kennedys and other democrats.
