Time is Running Out to Stop the Senate Gun Control Bill
“Gun Owners of America, which bills itself as the ‘no compromise’ gun lobby, told its supporters this week that it was a ‘do-or-die moment’ for the Second Amendment and that they were ‘being sold out and exploited’ by Senate Republicans.”
(The Washington Post, June 15, 2022)
Don’t Let Up the Pressure!
Your calls are having an impact.
I’m hearing it from Senators on Capitol Hill. They say that your activism is creating a lot of heat.
I can’t predict what’s going to happen on the final vote, which could come as early as today or tomorrow. I just know that we can’t let up the pressure.
Anti-gun Democrats are telling Republican Senators that you are just a paper tiger. They’re telling them there will be no repercussions for supporting the anti-gun Senate deal (S. 2938).
That’s why I need your help. I can tell compromising Senators until I’m blue in the face that what they’re doing is unconstitutional.
But they won’t hear me unless they hear from you.
So once again, I need you to call your two Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote NO on the anti-gun deal (S. 2938).
Tell them if they don’t pass a bill that encourages willing and responsible adults to be armed, then they will have accomplished absolutely NOTHING to stop the next mass shooter.
Senators are saying we need to “do something.”
Well, tell them that they do need to DO SOMETHING. But “doing something” means having an armed presence at schools. That’s the ONLY SOLUTION that will save lives—whether it’s armed teachers or school resource officers.
If you’re short on time, you can send pre-written letters to tell your two Senators to VOTE NO on the “bipartisan” gun control bill.
NOTE: We’ve separated letters by Senators’ political party affiliation so as to maximize our efficacy. Letters to Democrats will focus on the threats Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws pose to our Fifth Amendment right to Due Process.
It’s sad that many Senators don’t really care about breaking their oath of office. What does bother them is getting booed at Republican conventions, as happened to Sen. John Cornyn this past weekend.
Or it bothers them when gun rights activists plan demonstrations at a Senator’s district office to protest their support for gun control.
This is precisely what GOA is doing with Grass Roots North Carolina activists tomorrow, when GRNC is leading a delegation of activists to protest “Traitor Thom” Tillis’ support for the anti-gun Senate deal. (For those in NC, find out the details of the 10 am protest here.)
They fear being held accountable. And that’s why we can’t let up on applying the “heat.”
So please call your two Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote NO on the anti-gun deal (S. 2938).
Tell them that if our President and Congressmen are important enough to be protected by guns, then so are our children!
Tell them that if “doing something” doesn’t include hardening our schools by allowing willing and responsible adults to be armed, then they’ve DONE NOTHING!
And then please consider making a contribution to our 2A Protection Fund, as that will enable GOA to rally even more gun owners to oppose this anti-gun Senate deal.
