The National Association for Gun Rights is loud and active. This is the text of an email that I got today, I post it as an FYI for our non-gun toting, freedom hating friends.
I’m afraid it’s all true.
We have an all-out emergency in Washington, D.C.
I regret to inform you that President Trump is advocating for more gun control than former President Obama EVER dreamed of passing.
Today, during a meeting televised on Fox News, President Trump, flanked by Sens. Dianne Feinstein and John Cornyn laid out his plan to pass radical gun control.
And I’ve got to tell you Edward, I couldn’t believe what he said.
When talking about gun rights and due process, Trump fired back at Vice President Pence, stating: “take the guns first, go through due process second.”
That’s right; President Trump is calling for the elimination of due process rights, which is the only thing that has prevented numerous innocent Americans, including veterans, from having their guns ripped from their hands.
All it would take is one government bureaucrat slapping a crazy label on your file for your guns to be confiscated.
But that isn’t the only anti-gun demand Trump made.
The President also made it clear that he is pulling a play out of Obama’s handbook and will ban bump stocks without even asking Congress for approval, stating:
“We can do that with an executive order . . . so you won’t have to worry about bump stock, shortly that will be gone.”
Remember during the Obama years when conservatives everywhere, including Donald Trump were railing about then-President Obama’s abuse of executive action?
In 2012, Donald Trump stated “Why is [Barack Obama] constantly issuing executive orders that are major power grabs of authority?”
I could ask President Trump the same question right now.
This is an all-out emergency, and your support now is absolutely vital.
The most important thing you can do right now is sign your NO GUN CONTROL, NO DEALS Petition making it clear to President Trump and the rest of Congress that we will not accept any gun control.
If you’ve already signed it, and want to help in the fight, you can click here and forward this email to your Second Amendment loving friends, and chip in to help us continue fighting these schemes.
Right now we are faced with an avalanche of gun control proposals being pushed by both Republicans and Democrats.
Here’s just a taste of some of the other schemes we are facing that President Trump backed at today’s meeting:
*** Spending more than $625 MILLION to beef up the Brady-NICS gun control database, barring more Americans from owning firearms.
*** Raising the minimum age to buy or possess a rifle, assuring that a 20-year-old single mother can’t defend her family from a home invader. This bill was just sponsored by Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
*** The infamous Toomey-Manchin expanded gun registration proposal that we narrowly defeated in 2013.
*** Gun Violence Confiscation Orders, allowing a family member, disgruntled ex-partner, or roommate to report you to a court and have your guns taken away -- ALL WITHOUT TRIAL OR DUE PROCESS.
*** Scrapping concealed carry reciprocity, which was a major campaign promise of Donald Trump.
This is just a small collection of the gun control proposals thrown around during the meeting.
Even more extreme proposals, like Feinstein’s infamous “assault weapons” ban is still on the table, with President Trump eager to see what Feinstein can come up with.
Things in Washington, D.C. are bad right now, but there is at least some good news for Second Amendment supporters.
Solid pro-gun leaders like Sens. Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Rep. Thomas Massie are fighting like hell to stop these anti-gun schemes.
And with the 4.5 million NAGR members standing with them, I believe we have a good chance to defeat this gun control onslaught like we have in the past.
So please don’t wait to take action.
Gun grabbers like Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer are foaming at the mouth for more gun control, and we’re the only thing standing in their way.
Please click here and sign your NO GUN CONTROL, NO DEALS Petition right away!
If you’ve already signed, please click here to forward this email to all your Second Amendment-supporting friends and family.
And once you’ve signed, please also consider making a generous contribution to help us fight back gun control.
The gun grabbers are prepared to drop tens of millions of dollars to send the Second Amendment through the shredder.
I don’t have billionaire financers on my side like they do.
Instead, I have good folks like you who chip in a little bit at a time. And frankly, I prefer it that way.
So please click here and make a generous contribution.
Whether you give $300 or $200, or even just $5 or $10, it will be greatly appreciated and used judiciously to defend our rights.
We need everyone who cares about the Second Amendment to take a stand now.
Another great way to make your voice heard is to make a quick call to your lawmakers letting them know you are firmly against gun control.
You can reach them with the phone numbers below:
Sen. Marco Rubio: (202) 224-3041
Sen. Bill Nelson: (202) 224-5274
Rep. Vern Buchanan: (202) 225-5015
Your support right now is absolutely critical.
I appreciate everything you’ve done to support the Second Amendment in the past, and I hope I can count on you again.
National Assoc-iation for Gun Rights
P.S. President Donald Trump just declared his support for eliminating the due process requirement to take guns away from those suspected of being mentally unfit to own them.
He also sided with radical gun grabbers like Dianne Feinstein on a number of other extreme gun control proposals.
I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it with my own eyes on Fox News.
If you are as angry as I am about Trump’s anti-gun betrayal, please click here and sign your NO GUN CONTROL, NO DEALS petition right away!
And once you’ve signed, please consider chipping in $10 or $20 to help defeat every gun control proposal that rears its ugly head in Congress.
