You can reach your Senator at (202) 224-3121.

With your help, we can stop Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and Michael Bloomberg — and keep them from doing their gun control “happy dance.” 

They have crafted a major gun control package and have duped a dozen Republicans into helping them.

Tragically, one of these Republicans is your Senator.  

He is a cosponsor of S. 2135, the so-called NICS Fix legislation.  And his partners on that bill consist of a sick assortment of gun-hating Democrats from places like New York and California.

Sadly, several Republicans thought they could get some “good ink” in the Left-wing media by supporting well-disguised gun control. 

One of them is your Senator.  Another is the chief sponsor of the bill, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). 

But it’s now becoming clear that this bill would force the VA to send even more names of veterans into the NICS system — where, already, more than 257,000 veterans have lost their gun rights.

It would suck up the medical marijuana lists from 29 states to disarm them, and most likely, reinstate the Social Security Gun Ban that Congress just repealed.

It would push to have people with bench warrants forwarded to the FBI, even if the subjects were guilty of nothing more than an unpaid traffic ticket

The tragedy in all of this is that your Senator was elected on a platform supporting the Second Amendment — not a promise to destroy it.  

And there is no reason why your Senator should be joining with a rogue’s gallery of Leftist kooks to attack the Second Amendment. 

GOA activists have had success in pulling Republicans off gun control bills in the past, but it takes a strong grassroots effort. Remember that when lawmakers “feel the heat, they see the light.” 

That’s why I’m asking that you call your Senator at (202) 224-3121 and urge him/her to remove his cosponsorship from S. 2135. 

Here are some talking points for your call:

•Besides the chief sponsor of S. 2135, this bill’s main supporters are Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein — the leaders of the gun control movement. Your Senator should not have his/her name on the same bill as those gun grabbers.

•This bill would bribe states to add thousands of names of otherwise law-abiding citizens into the NICS system — adding more veterans, and even Americans with unpaid traffic tickets — completely circumventing due process!

•Your Senator ran on a pro-gun ticket. He/she needs to remember his/her campaign promises and uphold his/her oath to office!

So, please, call your Senator at (202) 224-3121 right now! 

And don’t let him tell you that the bill doesn’t contain the word “traffic ticket.”  Gun-grabbers aren’t stupid.  But when they pay half a billion dollars to enforce an already unconstitutional law — as the Cornyn-Schumer bill does — they are supporting all of the bad things in the laws they are bribing states to enforce. 

So, again, please call your Senator and tell him to withdraw his cosponsorship from the Cornyn-Schumer-Feinstein bill.  

Your Senator’s number is (202) 224-3121.

Thank you for taking action.
