Gun Owners Can Make an Example Out of GOP Turncoats

That’s the endorsement I care about. (Kelly for Alaska/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Senate passes bipartisan gun control bill,” Fox News reported. “Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Safer Communities Act was the first major gun safety legislation to be passed since the Brady Bill in 1994.”

If by “bipartisan” they mean the usual suspects, then yeah. 15 of these feckless weasels, joined their “friends across the aisle” to pas the bill in the Senate, sending it to the House where the Democrat majority there guaranteed its passage and submission to Joe Biden, who eagerly enacted it into law.

“The Republicans who joined Democrats in voting for the bill were Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, John Cornyn of Texas, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mitt Romney of Utah, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Todd Young of Indiana, and Roy Blunt of Missouri,” the report noted.

Most of those names are no surprise, although some should be.

“9 Out Of 11 Highest NRA Funded GOP Senators Joined Democrats On Gun Control,” Big League Politics reported. It doesn’t take much research to find endorsements for them along with assurances that they’re “staunch supporters of the right to bear arms” or similar hyperbolic superlatives. Those of us following such things know NRA grades have been a joke since long before Wayne LaPierre called Harry Reid “a true champion of the Second Amendment.”

Of the 15 who decided to stab their gun-owning constituents in the back, opportunities for immediate political payback are limited. Two, Portman and Toomey, are retiring. The others aren’t up for reelection anytime soon with the exception of Lisa Murkowski, who also voted to convict Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial and to confirm Joe Biden’s handlers’ pick, Ketanji Brown Jackson, to the Supreme Court. Any guesses on how she would have voted on Bruen?

Those aren’t Murkowski’s only betrayals. I’ve amassed quite a collection of examples over the years without hardly trying. There’s no point in repeating them here—if you’re interested, follow the link. Bottom line: She’s bad news for gun owners, period, and doesn’t deserve to be reelected, especially when there is a viable alternative giving constituents she betrayed a chance to “primary” her.

“Kelly Tshibaka, backed by Trump, officially files for Senate run,” the Associated Press reported in April.

“Tshibaka’s personal Facebook page includes a Dec. 29 post in which she defends Second Amendment rights, an issue which has gained national attention with President Biden seeking to advance a number of gun-control measures while Democrats control the U.S. House and Senate,” Alaska Watchman noted. “’If you take away law-abiding people’s guns, they are powerless against the weaponized government … and the path to tyranny is thus paved,’ she stated. ‘I’m a proud member of the NRA. I believe government is accountable to the People.’”

Here are two examples demonstrating the difference between Tshibaka and the incumbent that gun owners should know about:

Anyone can say the “right thing” though, some who have been burned before by broken promises will no doubt say. True, they can, but the chance to make an object lesson for the rest of the GOP by thrashing a prominent betrayer is worth taking a risk, especially since there’s no evidence Tshibaka is anything but what she represents herself to be. To utterly reject Lisa Murkowski and send her packing will send shock waves through the Swamp and let the rats who betrayed us know that we’re coming for them when it’s their turn in the barrel.

Listen to what she says and believes and ask yourself how many politicians express these values (the way she rattled off truths starting at around five minutes in made me laugh out loud):

The problem is campaigns cost money. Lots of it. And it’s no surprise that the establishment favorite holds a big advantage “courtesy” of the elites whose bidding she does:

“Murkowski ended the quarter with $5.2 million on hand with no debt, the records show… As of March 31, Tshibaka had $967,600 on hand with just over $95,000 in debts.”

Most reading this are not Alaskans, but then again, what a senator does affects us all. In the August 16 primary it will be in our interests to stop Murkowski and her fellow Quisling collaborators from abridging our rights any further. If you agree, why not help out Tshibaka’s campaign? If you are interested in defending your right to own a gun against infringements, you have a stake in this race, it doesn’t have to be a lot and every little bit helps.

Roy Blunt (RINO, MO) is also retiring…..as a financial burden for life on his constituent taxpayers. A rapid demise can only be hoped for to minimize said burden.

I read where chaney Wyoming is squirming pretty much . Going out and begging dems to switch parties and vote for her in the repub primary .

JSNMGC

Yes, many Democrats will switch and vote Republican (for Cheney) in the primary.  In the Texan Senate primary there was only 1/3 as many Republican votes in the primary as in the general election. In our primary, we may have more Republican votes in the primary than in the general election. Clearly a different kind of problem (Democrat switch voters). There are not enough Democrats here to save her though – she’s toast. I think she has less than a 10% chance of winning.

I interviewed him one on one. He thinks the 2nd Amendment was created to protect the rights of government employees. He also thinks “everything possible” should be done to keep firearms “out of the wrong hands.” I pointed out to him that would mean also keeping guns out of some of the right hands. He short circuited. He said he is 100% “pro 2nd Amendment” and then explained why universal background checks were absolutely necessary. I told him criminals aren’t going to obtain firearms through sources that would comply with the new law. He indicated that he just “felt” we… Read more »

At age 82, I’ve seen all this crap before. As far as politicians go, I’m a firm believer in the words of an old Tom T.

Not mentioned is Missouri’s Roy Blunt (R), long time NRA rated and sometime pro-gun senator who voted for this bill. Well, he is retiring, so I guess his long standing ties to the pro-gun side meant nothing to him. Giving Murkowski a well deserved “primarying” is a viable move on our part. But with Blunt, he has a son and relatives who are in politics.

Codrea’s inclusion of actionable election info (donation address) is much appreciated, something that should be common on Ammoland, successful election activity being “lobbying by other means”, and far more critical. Elect the right guys & bounce the wrong ones as a lesson to others, and lobbying becomes more effective and less necessary. Of course, that’s not in the interest of professional lobbyists who betray us for “access”. One way they betray us is handing out phony A & A+ grades, endorsements, Orange Alert mailings and OUR money.

Having an R next to your name is not a guarantee of 2a support, we all know this in our hearts but wish it weren’t so. We naturally look for a short cut, relieving ourselves from finding out more information about a candidate, It used to be a reliable indicator when (R) appeared but that was in a different era. Do the work to find 2a friendly candidates and support and vote for them. Remember Democrats stick together so primary out the RINOs.

JSNMGC

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a no compromise firearm rights lobbyist organization that asked detailed policy questions on behalf of all Americans who are pro firearm rights rather than each person contacting candidates themselves (and getting ignored)? If there was such an organization, they would have access to candidates and they would have the opportunity to ask dozens of detailed policy questions. If there was such an organization, members could pay fees in return for the valuable services rendered. All Republican candidates say they are “pro 2nd Amendment.” Then they get into office, and many start saying “I’m pro… Read more »

I voted for Trump in both 2016 and 2020. The reason Trump lost was Trump. 

He did more than personally direct the BATFE to ban bump stocks. He begged for one big beautiful gun control bill. He bragged he was better at gun control than Obama.

“We” could have leveraged that loss if “we” (through gun rights groups) said “see – flip flop on us and you’re going to lose. Let that be a lesson to all future Republican candidates.”

Don’t tell me you bought the big lie ? There wasn’t enough cheating to change the outcome. 2,000 Mules proved it otherwise. That doesn’t even include the other methods they used.

JSNMGC

I wrote the reason Trump lost was Trump.

If he hadn’t tried to chase the suburban white woman vote by supporting numerous types of yet more gun control, he would have received a lot more votes from pro firearm rights people.

Whatever the extent of voting fraud there was, it could have been overcome by more legitimate votes from the people Trump turned on.

I agree with that interpretation, i.e. “the” reason it was stolen was Trump, but it was clearly stolen.

Ope

President Trumps ultimate revenge for having that election stolen will be when he gets sworn in as president on 20 Jan ‘25. The socialists whole reason for this Jan 6 investigation bullshit is to make Trump ineligible for political office in ‘24.. Just like their two previous failed impeachment attempts this too will fail miserable.

I sure hope he would do more than he’s done in Florida.

DeSantis promotes ConCarry and will sign it by early 23 when anti-gun RINO SenPres “Wilty Simp” Simpson is term limited. Are you lobbying DeSantis to push faster?

The reason is because they know Trump will easily win for the third time in ‘24 and they will be unable to steal the election again. They aren’t convinced his position on “bump stocks” would cost him millions of votes in the ‘24 election.

Typical WillTEX. Blame DeSantis for Scott’s & Rubio’s votes. What exactly is his “terrible” record on 2A?

You’ll do & say anything to smear DeSantis & promote your kabuki cuck-hero Abbott & coward cops. If TEXAS gun laws are so great, why are a score of kids DEAD in Uvalde? You know why.

No wonder the sock pup downvoters are so active. They haven’t whack-a-trolled him again yet, probly since he’s holding back compared to the “LMFAO!!! LIGHT YOU UP, BOY!!!” routine. The attack on DeSantis makes sense since he’s an Abbott worshiper.

His defense of POS Calley and the rapes and murders increased the probability that Ope = Will/TEX/et al. and the probability steadily increased since then.

There was voter fraud. Also, Trump pissed off a lot of firearm rights people by supporting yet more gun control. Some of them were so pissed off they didn’t vote for him.

We need to fix the voter fraud issue and we need to have Republican politicians stop supporting never-ending gun control.

Yes – “Ope” = Will/TEX/et al.

He tried much harder this time, but I was 50% confident after his first few posts (right after his other accounts went silent).

His insane defense of POS Calley and the raping and murdering raised the probability to 87%.

At this point, there is no doubt: Ope = Will/TEX/et al.

Russn8r

IT WORKS! LOL!

JSNMGC

The TDS Type B people are angry that Trump’s political suicide video was posted again.

Russn8r

Yes & No.

The election was clearly stolen, but thanks to “Libertarian” voters, Dems had steal far fewer votes. “Ls” are spoilers, getting 2-4%, far higher than the margin of theft in the stolen states.

Having a D next to the name does mean anti-gun in every case, regardless of stated positions. 100% of “pro-gun” Dem pols vote for anti-gun party leadership (e.g. Pelosi, Schumer), endorse gun grabbers for other offices (e.g. Gore, Kerry, Obama, Biden) and confirm gun grabbers to the courts, DOJ etc (e.g. Ketanji, Sotomayor, Kagan, Holder, Garland). There’s no such thing as a pro-gun Dem.

Stag

This is exactly why we will keep losing more and more of our rights. Republicans know they can do whatever they want and people like you will keep voting for them.

JSNMGC

Yes.

Russn8r

The time to bounce “Republicans” is in primaries. Voting “L” in this last general election out of peevish perfectionism, instead of against Biden/”for” Trump, was suicidal stupidity.

ALL Dems are anti-gun. See above.
NOT all Rs are anti-gun.

JSNMGC

I suspect some of those firearm rights people who didn’t vote for Trump viewed Trump’s flip flopping as more than lack of perfectionism (and they are right).

They are just sick of it.

In any event, “we” could have at least leveraged the loss and “we” didn’t.

Instead of saying “see what happens if you turn on us” there were too many people defending Trump’s flip flopping.

Russn8r

“Pro-gun” Biden, “L” & stay-home voters engaged in peevish nose-cutting/face-spiting stupidity & we live under the gvt they deserve.

ALL Dems are anti-gun.

NOT all Rs are anti-gun; ALL Rs confirmed squishy Trump’s noms who gave us Bruen.

ALL “L” candidates are de facto anti-USA & anti-gun: ALL want open borders & unlimited immigration = globalism, redistribution, socialism, destruction of OUR quality of life & voting control of OUR country; rapidly growing pop density & urbanization inevitably yielding D majorities, loss of freedom-property-gun rights. “Ls” can’t honestly take the pledge of allegiance let alone the oath.

JSNMGC

I voted for Trump both times.

I respect the decision made by the pro firearm rights people who didn’t vote for him. They have had enough.

It’s unfortunate “we” were unable to leverage the loss into a warning to all other Republican politicians.

There should have been more “see – that’s what you get” and less “we will go to prison and have our lives ruined to support you despite your flip flopping.”

Russn8r

“They have had enough”, so they voted for a lot more and a lot worse. Genius move!

JSNMGC

Maybe they are just tired of taking the longer road to the same place and thought this was the time to make a stand in the expectation that it would send a message to the next Republican candidate.

Irrespective of whether they were right or wrong, “we” could have leveraged the result and “we” failed to do so.

Now we not only got the Trump loss, but Trump (and other Republican politicians) believe that even Republican voters who have strong firearm rights beliefs will carry water for Republican politicians who support yet more never-ending gun control.

Stag

Almost all Rs are anti-2A. No anti-2A politicians will ever get my vote and Republicans will continue to push gun control until they start losing elections because of it.

Skepticism is justified, but GOA endorsements do not mean nothing. No doubt she filled out a questionnaire satisfactorily (which may or may not have included an immigration question). Maybe GOA would provide it. Even if Tshibaka turns out squishy, it’s worth taking Murky’s scalp. On that basis, and thoroughly despising Murky, I donated. Worth a shot.

GOA was a key player in getting meaningless SAPA legislation passed in WY. They completely pandered to law enforcement. i spoke with them about it and their response was weak.

One of the ways we get “RINOs” is because candidates don’t publish detailed policy positions and, on the topic of firearm rights, organizations such as the NRA and GOA don’t ask and publish detailed policy positions.

GOA asks detailed policy questions, you can request the survey to send it to candidates yourself, I have, but they don’t publish replies. GOA has some flaws, not publishing survey answers is a big one, but I do not believe they have ever given phony grades to candidates who answer wrong, or endorse them, like NRA has. No way.

JSNMGC

I don’t believe they have done what the NRA has done.

I suspect their questionnaire is not as thorough as what I have used for interviewing candidates. Some candidates will insist they are “pro 2nd Amendment” until you ask them extremely specific questions and then they admit that, yes, they are in favor of yet more never-ending gun control.

If GOA published the questionnaire it would serve two purposes:

  • Provide better information to voters; and
  • Put the candidate on the record so they will be less likely to crawfish out of their previous statements.

Bigfootbob never provided the phone number that can be used to text questions directly to Kelly (because it doesn’t exist). He also didn’t provide any links to Kelly’s detailed firearm rights policy positions.

She did not respond to a call to the number listed on her website.

She did not respond to an email to the email address on her website.

GOA indicated they will not release (e.g., post to their website) any of Kelly’s detailed positions on firearms rights.

I did look for myself before I posted my comment. Why are you so lazy? Post a link to detailed firearm rights questions (three dozen will suffice) and that “gal’s” answers. I wrote that Trump’s endorsement means nothing. Trump flip-flopped on firearm rights, selected anti-firearm rights people to be on his team (Barr, Giuliani, Kushner, etc.), and he nominated an anti-firearm rights person to be the Director of the BATFE (Canterbury).

BTW, before NRA stopped showing questionnaires in the 90s, I saw several by gun grabbers. One answered everything wrong but got a “C+” (passing), endorsed, Orange Alert mailer. Truly a solid F. Others answered some wrong but got As. Quid pro blow corruption at work contrary to stated NRA mission & member interests.

Then there was anti-gun candidate Brown vs pro-gun Sheriff Anderson, which Codrea documented. NRA surely elected Brown since he was pals with owners of LaPew’s pet insurance marketing firm HQ’d in the county or had a personal beef with Anderson or both. Corruption

“Benedict” Burr said in 2016 he was retiring in 2022.

Roy Blunt of Missouri is also retiring and what is sad is that his son is a board of director member of the NRA.
Makes one wonder if dad sold out his son or did he have the sons blessing, tells me that the NRA ratings don’t mean a thing.

Typical NRA board traitor.
