Republicans, Democrats and the NRA secretly working on full gun control legislation?

AMMONLAND | MARCH 12, 2013
One of the 250 United States Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said “I love peace but if there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may live in peace” and “These are the days that try men’s souls”.
Please keep those words in the back of your mind as I give you the shocking report and facts surrounding the Obama/Cantor back room deal.
The Republican Establishment Sellout to Obama may be more imminent than we think – – unless you and I can get all our family and friends to act swiftly and decisively to STOP THE REPUBLICAN LED SELL OUT to Barack Hussein Obama.
And Republican Majority Leader is leading the charge to cut a deal with President Obama.
The following are just some of the threats to innocent school children and our God-given 2nd Amendment liberties that Republicans are about to shove down our throats:
1.The NRA is cutting backroom deals to centralize gun owner data collection into the Obama/Holder massive government data base.
A centralized system is less costly to fight and far more lucrative for the NRA to appear to be “fixing“.
Like all establishment political lobbies the key to their job security is assisting in making problems they end up being called upon to “fix“.
2. Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor is leading the charge to give Obama and Holder what they want in exchange for appearing to be “fixing” the problem of innocent children being butchered in our public and private schools.
3. Newly appointed Republican Judiciary Chairman, Bob Goodlatte R-VA 6th District, is providing political cover for the sneaky back room gun control deals and gun grabbing sell outs that his political masters – – John Boehner and Eric Cantor – – are cutting with Obama and his corrupt Attorney General, Eric Holder.
Political insiders have confirmed to me, that Goodlatte earned his brand new chairmanship by ignoring the constitutional demands and grievances of every Republican Unit Chairman in his own 6th district.
These demands and grievances were approved and unanimously voted on by the GOP 6th district, published in prominent newspapers and sent to other Republican Chairmen around the country.
Goodlatte’s response was to ignore his unit chairs and when pressed by the media to publicly insult them.
Goodlatte is also fulfilling his promise to be a spokesman for NRA “A” rated Virginia Republican Congressman Scott Rigell’s House version of anti-gun Vermont Senator Pat Leahy’s S. 443 – – The Forced Gun Owner Registration Act.
4. Virginia Congressman Scott Rigell, R-VA 2nd district, has snuggled up to the Obama campaign by making a generous donation to the Obama campaign.
With “Republicans” like Rigell can anyone say “Benedict Arnold“?
5. Virginia’s very own gun grabbing Governor – – Gun Ban Bob McDonnell – – has ignored Virginia gun owner pleas to stop the slaughter of innocent Virginia school children.
That’s right Gun Ban Bob refuses to do anything practical that will save the lives of teachers and students.
Why Gun Ban Bob would want to anger and alienate gun owners in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina when he wants to be president or vice-president in 2016 is a mystery – – unless he has a secret political desire to leave politics when his term as Governor expires.
Actually, given Gun Ban Bob’s decade long record of flip flopping back and forth on gun rights it may be that Mr. McDonnell is tired of his political duplicity.
That is my best guess having met Mr. McDonnell on several occasions because he is a VERY likeable family man.
Before I explain our hope of stopping these betrayals of trust by the cowardly Republicans let me give you the facts regarding the weak-sister of the gun rights movement – – the National Rifle Association.
If you have not read the link above, please do. It is the key to understanding what I am about to tell you.
Over the years I have warned gun owners in Virginia that crafty phrases like “expanded background checks” and “beefing up the database” were simply code words for a national gun registration scheme.
These empty and deceptive words have are the tools of the trade for the sons of gun-control.
These gun grabbing politicians, lobbyists and activists love to use deceptive language to manipulate voters and pull the wool over the eyes of their victims.
In fact, right now the newest threat that has emerged is being sold under the guise of the code word “gun trafficking.”
Seriously, doesn’t “gun trafficking” sound like something bad that you and I should join the gun grabbers in trying to stop?
Better yet, we could then appear “REASONABLE” – – whatever that is when little kids are being butchered like pigs in our schools.
You see, the word smiths for the anti-life and liberty movement know that gun control will never sell unless it is carefully and craftily packaged and then sold to the public.
I’m talking about anti-gun Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy’s S. 443, the so-called Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms Act of 2013.
You see, the gun grabbers know how to deceptively name their anti-life and liberty bills.
So please, never use the bill names chosen by the sons-of-gun-control.
In reality, S. 443 is a Forced Gun Owner Registration Scheme. S. 443 imposes harsh sentences – up to 15 years in prison – for minor offenses.
The U.S. Senate committee that voted on this gun registration scheme approved it by an 11-7 vote.
Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, voted in favor of the Democrat Chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy’s, S. 443.
Incredibly, this dangerous legislation imposes a 15-year prison sentence on anyone who purchases a firearm with the intent of giving or selling it to a “prohibited person.”
And just who is considered a “prohibited person?”
Unfortunately, more and more individuals are being labeled a “prohibited person” for non-violent reasons.
I myself almost became a “prohibited” person in 1990 for leading a peaceful non-violent prayer vigil.
It took me almost 4 years and lots of pro-bono attorney hours to defeat it at the Vermont Supreme Court.
McHugh v. Vermont belongs in the constitutions museum of 1st Amendment absurdities.
But that is beside the point because it simply illustrates how ruthless power hungry liberals can be.
Now you know why I am very sensitive to how rogue governments and would-be-political-dictators abuse and manipulate words and ideas to further their dangerous agenda of destroying liberty.
But this isn’t about my experience.
My experience is simply a modern day illustration that history repeats itself.
The fact is that it was Adolf Hitler who motivated good-willed German’s to hate our Jewish friends by referring to them as “international serpents”.
Hitler was a master deceiver. He actually begged German people to protect their beautiful young German school girls from young Jewish males.
Did German school girls need protecting like American school children need protecting?
Yes, of course they did – – but not from young Jewish boys but from Hitler and those whom he misled.
Hitler went on to say that “With Satanic joy in his face, the black-haired Jewish youth lurks in wait for the unsuspecting girl whom he defiles with his blood, thus stealing her from her people.” -Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Now you know why you and I must stand up and be counted in this fight to protect innocent little American boys and girls in our day and our time.
Please don’t let history repeat itself.
And above all let’s fight the lies of the gun grabbing socialists with words of truth because it is only truth that can set us truly free.
We must not be duped into supporting or standing idle while the opponents of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness eat out the foundations of our system of government like maggots and termites.
AM I EXAGGERTING?
Decide for yourself.
Right now, 150,000 of our nation’s hero veterans are considered “prohibited” just because they acknowledged PTSD – – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – – on returning from war.
And since Barack Hussein Obama just issued an Executive Order calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to “review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun,” the definition of “prohibited” could change any day depending on the Attorney General’s whims.
Remember, these are the “saviors of mankind” that refuse to promise that drone strikes will never be used on American soil to assassinate Americans who have not yet been convicted in a court of law or even charged with a capital offense.
But it gets worse, because under the NRA drafted Forced Gun Owner Registration Act, it doesn’t matter if you knew whether someone is a “prohibited person” or not – you’re going to prison either way – – if it was your intent to sell a firearm to a prohibited person.
And who defines and decides the intent of man’s mind?
In reality, this effort at mind reading could also be called the NRA drafted Obama/Cantor Gun Owner Thought Control Act of 2013.
The truth is, if the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act passes, the only way to comply will be through a national gun registration scheme – – much like the German law requiring Jews to wear the Star of David on their sleeves for identification and registration purposes.
And you and I both know what registration of Jews produced.
And you and I both know gun owner registration is the first step toward . . .
. . . TOTAL GUN CONFISCATION!
Gun confiscation was also another one of Hitler’s first laws passed – – all in the name of public safety of course.
Is all this sounding eerily familiar? The gun grabbers understand what is happening so must we.
That is why the real purpose of the Obama/Holder scheme and their well-meaning but badly deceived and misled allies at the NRA is to effectively force gun owners to accept a national gun registry in order to protect themselves from Barack Obama’s ATF goon sting operations.
So the NRA gets to make money while unwittingly supporting a law meant to save us but that will eventually enslave us.
Worse yet, the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act is supported by members of both political parties – many who claim to be “pro-gun.”
Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins and Illinois Republican Senator Mark Kirk joined Leahy as cosponsors of this anti-gun scheme in the Senate.
THAT’s RIGHT! CO-SPONSORS OF FORCED GUN REGISTRATION
Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley – the top Republican on the Democrat-controlled Judicial Committee – just voted for the bill in Committee.
And over in the U.S. House, Virginia Congressman Scott Rigell – given an “A” rating from the NRA – is sponsoring a House version of this dangerous scheme.
Supposed “pro-gun Republicans” are dropping like flies.
In fact, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham just introduced a bill – along with Republican Senator Jeff Flake – to massively expand the so-called “background check” system to include mental health records.
“Mental health” is a code word used to dupe us into handing bureaucrats the power to STRIP Americans of their God-given rights without a trial or conviction by a jury of peers.
Multiple news sources report that this anti-gun legislation is supported by the NRA.
The institutional gun lobby is more concerned with making friends with the press and making money from their sell outs than defending gun rights.
The sad truth is, the sons-of-gun-control guru’s and their gun grabbing political buddies in the House and Senate could care less about so-called “gun trafficking.”
If they did, they’d be outraged at Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” scandal where the U.S. government funneled illegal weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
Instead, Attorney General Eric Holder was granted the authority to determine who should and shouldn’t be “prohibited” from owning a firearm.
Apparently, anti-gun Republicans like Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins and Mark Kirk would rather empower Barack Obama’s ATF goons to harass YOU rather than bring Eric Holder to justice for his crimes.
That’s why I’m counting on you to help defeat this back-door attempt to impose a national gun registration scheme on America’s most law-abiding citizens.
While your Virginia Gun Owners Coalition and other gun groups are sounding the alarm over the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act, the NRA has been quietly writing the bill and trying to minimize press coverage.
The inside-the-beltway gun lobby is more afraid of losing money to VGOC and the National Association for Gun Rights (www.nagr.org) – the loyal opposition – – than they are of losing more gun rights.
That’s why you and I must stop these dangerous schemes that are coming at us faster than I can write.
But the solution is simple and there is real hope.
You and I must let the politicians know that their political careers and futures are on the line.
VGOC members did it in 2004 when we joined several other state level gun lobbies to kill the NRA drafted bill renewing the Hated Clinton Gun Ban.
Those of you who have been members since 2004 will remember that VGOC members turned Senator George Allen around after he publicly promised to renew the Clinton Gun Ban for the NRA.
The NRA cut a back room deal with anti-gun Democrats to renew the Clinton Gun Ban in exchange for a Gun Manufactures’ Liability Bill.
VGOC worked with other gun groups across America to expose the NRA sell out.
I will never forget when the morning of the vote, Mike Thomas, Allen’s chief of staff, called and asked me “Mr. McHugh would you be willing to tell your members that the Senator has changed his mind based on new information and will vote against the renewal of the hated Clinton Gun Ban”.
We won then and we can do it again.
Let that be our motto.
“We won then and we can do it again”.
Here is what VGOC staff and volunteers will do:
- We will send you action items as often as possible so that you can act quickly and swiftly to confront the politicians and inject the fear of gun owner wrath into their pathetic political career plans.
- I will continue to publicly and personally confront and expose the politicians who are willing to stand on the dead bodies of murdered school children to further their political careers as often as possible.
Here’s what you can do to help:
*** Call your U.S. Senators and Congressmen in the House of Representatives and INSIST they oppose S. 443 the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act of 2013.
If they play dumb just give them the bill number. Let them know you will not be fooled by their political games and deceptive code words.
Below are the key politicians who need to receive a phone call from you once a day until they hold a press conference promising to vote against ANY and ALL gun control bills.
- Sen. Tim Kaine: (202) 224- 4024
- Sen. Mark Warner: (202)224-2023
- Rep. Bob Goodlatte (202)225 5431
- Rep. Eric Cantor (202) 225 2815
- Rep. Scott Rigell (202) 225 4215
Time is of the essence because this dangerous bill could be on the floor of the Senate starting any day.
So there’s not a moment to waste if we want to STOP this deceptive and insidious assault on life and liberty.
By killing Scott Rigell’s House version of S. 443 or just slowing it down, we can buy time to mobilize the fight in the Senate.
So please ACT TODAY to STOP these anti-life and liberty schemes.
And if you can, please chip in $10, $20 – or even $50 – to help alert thousands more Virginians to this imminent threat.
I won’t quit!
You can take that to the bank.
Please let me know that you aren’t quitting by making phone calls and asking all your family and friends to sign up for free email alerts at VGOC, Virginia’s Only State Level No-More-Excuses Gun Lobby – – Representing Gun Owners to Politicians NOT Politicians to Gun Owners. (www.vgoc.org)
PS The Republicans just helped the Democrats in a U.S. Senate committee approve S. 443, the Forced Gun Owners Registration Act, by an 11-7 vote. Republicans helped pass this measure, whose chief sponsor was the panel’s chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
S. 443 bill is designed to force gun owners to accept a national gun registry since that will end up being the ONLY WAY many gun owners will think they can protect themselves from Barack Obama’s ATF goons’ and their sting operations.
