The National Association for Gun Rights issued the following message to supporters earlier today, encouraging gun owners to act:
One day after Nancy Pelosi impeached President Trump, the Republican-led U.S. Senate is poised to hand her a major win on gun control too.
Later today, the U.S. Senate, led by Mitch McConnell (R-KY), will vote on whether to approve the House legislation to increase government spending on gun control by a whopping $206 million.
It’s all contained within this year’s $1.3 trillion budget “deal,” H.R. 1158 and H.R. 1865.
So please call your Senators to urge them to vote against this gun control funding. Insist they vote no on H.R. 1158 and H.R. 1865.
Sen. Chuck Schumer -- (202) 224-6542 <<<
Sen. Mitch McConnell -- (202) 224-2541 <<<
If you cannot get through on those lines, try the switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
NAGR’s expert team of legislative analysts are warning this deal includes:
*** An $83 million budget increase to the ATF, giving the gun control agency a whopping $1.4 BILLION in operating funds so government bureaucrats can further violate your Second Amendment rights.
*** Handing $78 million to state gun control agencies, bribing them to submit names of more law-abiding Americans into the federal NICS gun control database, without due process so they can’t buy a gun.
*** Spending $20 million on the failed Clinton-era gun control program known as Project Safe Neighborhoods -- better known to gun owners as “Project Gestapo.”
*** $25 million in welfare funds for Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agenda by directing the Centers for Disease Control and National Institutes of Health to research junk science so the Left can use it to promote gun control.
Patriot, if you’re like me, you don’t want your tax dollars used to fund the radical gun control agenda.
That is why it is imperative you contact your Senators immediately and urge them to oppose H.R. 1158 and H.R. 1865.
Your phone message can be as simple as this:
As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment I urge you to OPPOSE H.R. 1158 and H.R. 1865 due to the massive increase in taxpayer funded gun control. The National Association for Gun Rights will keep me informed of your vote.
And be sure to contact Mitch McConnell, too, to let him know your disappointment that he’s even allowing this to come up for a vote. His number is (202) 224-2541.
Patriot, the U.S. Senate could vote on this bill today, so it is crucial the pro-gun grassroots act immediately.
With a national election year right around the corner, the politicians are susceptible to their constituents’ pressure now more than ever.
