Democrats in Washington: Get shot in the back as you try to be a Rabbit!

May 19, 2012

Democrats in Washington are launching an all-out war to destroy state self-defense laws.

A newly-floated Democrat amendment would threaten to cut off crime prevention grants to any state with a Stand Your Ground law on the books, forcing states to eliminate the law in order to receive the grant.

These rabid anti-gunners are demanding that states put the law on the side of armed criminals, or else!

Will you take action right now to oppose the destruction of Stand Your Ground self-defense laws by filling out your Stand Your Ground Citizen Survey below?

After the Trayvon Martin incident in Florida, the gun-grabbers and their pals in the press are working feverishly to whip up anti-gun hysteria nationwide.

Their goal is to DESTROY our right of self-defense by gutting or repealing Stand Your Ground Laws wherever they’re found and pass a host of new anti-gun initiatives.

The bad news is, without your IMMEDIATE help, I’m afraid they may succeed.

Stand Your Ground Laws simply state that law-abiding gun owners do not have a “duty to retreat” and cannot be prosecuted for defending themselves against criminal attack.

Do you really want to be second-guessing yourself if an armed thug is attacking you or a loved one?

Well, in states without Stand your Ground, being targeted by an anti-gun prosecutor is almost as dangerous as being attacked by a criminal.

After all, there’s nothing prosecutors with big egos and bigger political ambitions love more than to say they’re “tough on gun crime.”

So they look for every opportunity to nail law-abiding gun owners to the wall and crow as if they’ve just locked away a few Bloods’ and Crips’ gang bangers for good!

Worse, even if the armed citizen is found innocent, it can be virtually meaningless.

That’s why it’s vital you fill out the Stand Your Ground Citizen Survey below — RIGHT NOW!

In a recent tragic case in Iowa — which has no Stand Your Ground Law — a black former law enforcement officer and security guard, Jay Rodney Lewis, was thrown in jail for 112 days after defending himself against two white attackers.

One of the thugs was a drunken convicted felon with over 40 criminal charges going back 15 years!

Mr. Lewis was finally found innocent of all charges.

But during the time he was imprisoned, he lost his home, his car, his firearms collection and nearly everything else.

So where were the outraged headlines about this story?

Why didn’t the national media — so desperate to play the race card — ever report on this tragedy?

You and I both know the reason.

Guns are used an estimated 2.5 MILLION times per year by law-abiding citizens to deter crime, but there’s literally NEVER a mention about that fact in the press.

Instead, the gun-grabbers lay and wait with baited breath for a story where they can twist the facts to SMEAR our country’s “gun culture” and complain that we’re not more like Europe where victims are disarmed and criminals can roam free.

Now, the gun-grabbers and the national press are deriding Florida as the “Gunshine State” for daring to protect law-abiding gun owners’ rights to self-defense!

Worse, their scheme is working.

Florida’s Republican Governor, Rick Scott, has announced he’d be willing to “to look at any laws that made citizens feel uncomfortable.”

And sadly, Governor Scott isn’t the only Republican nationwide who suddenly went spineless.

In fact, I’m afraid if Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law falls, it could create a domino effect all over the country.

Not only could we see these critical laws repealed, but it could embolden anti-gun politicians to ram through even more new gun control schemes at the state level, including:

*** Psychological “screening” and “proof of need” requirements designed to arbitrarily allow government officials to deny law-abiding citizens before they can obtain a concealed-carry permit;

*** “Permit to purchase” requiring gun owners to go through an extensive training and permitting process just to be able to buy a handgun;

*** So-called “Assault Weapons” Bans designed to ELIMINATE gun ownership of all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns — even those commonly used for hunting.

As fights begin to heat up throughout the country, my goal is to deliver surveys to key legislators and Governors to prove that it’s you and me who truly have the backing of the grassroots.

The gun-grabbers can yell and scream all they want. But at the end of the day, they’re a paper tiger.

If I can run a full-scale program, they simply won’t be able to match our grassroots muscle.

But without a program like this, the only noise politicians will hear will be coming from the anti-gun media.

And THAT is a recipe for disaster.

P.S. The Trayvon Martin incident in Florida has given the gun-grabbers a new crusade — and that’s to REPEAL Stand Your Ground Laws and a host of other anti-gun initiatives.

It’s up to you and me to FIGHT BACK.

Help the Cause!

The National Association for Gun Rights is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, single-purpose citizens’ organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the Constitutionally protected right-to-keep-and-bear-arms through an aggressive program designed to mobilize public opposition to anti-gun legislation.

Trayvon Martin, and Stand Your Ground Laws

April 20, 2012
It wasn’t the first time that virulently anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg tried to pick the bones of a national tragedy for political advantage.
But pick he did.

And now every anti-gun zealot in America is trying to use the Trayvon Martin incident to repeal pro-gun laws, such as Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law.

The New York Times, always a toady for anti-gun causes — put it this way:

“As the [George Zimmerman] case proceeds, the Stand Your Ground law should be on trial as well.  It has invited gun owners to flirt with vigilantism…”

In other words, anti-gun zealots would take us back the “bad ol’ days” in 2003 — when a 78 year-old man was taken through the wringer by the legal system because he shot a man breaking into his trailer.

Or a 71 year-old-man was almost destroyed by the legal system because he used a gun to defend his 63 year-old friend against thugs who were trying to rob him.

In fact, in the four years for which we have statistics since the Stand Your Ground law was passed in Florida, homicides have dropped by 16.1%.

This is faster than the national average.

This means that many — perhaps hundreds — of Floridians are alive today because criminals have had to pause before robbing or killing them.

And, in most cases, they have had to pause not because a victim pulled a gun, but because the killer didn’t know whether or not the victim had a gun.

But make no mistake about it: Florida will be the test case to see whether anti-gunners can use the threats of riots and lynching’s to force repeal of America’s pro-gun laws.

We have to stop their threats in Florida.

And we need to do this by getting Governor Rick Scott to agree to veto efforts to repeal Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.

Because, if we don’t the anti-gun laws — the threats of riots — the vigilante justice — may soon be coming to a state near you.

I hope you will take a minute to sign your Gun Owners of America petition to Gov. Scott urging him not to repeal laws that protect your right to self-defense.
No one knows exactly what happened in the Trayvon Martin incident – and we may never know.  But the fact is that your gun rights will be on trial in the courtroom in that case.
That’s why it’s important that gun owners from across the country make their voices hear loud and clear.
Click here to sign the petition to Florida Governor Rick Scott urging him to reject efforts to gut the right of citizens to protect themselves.
The anti-gun lobby has billionaires like Michael Bloomberg and George Soros to fund their battles.  And believe me, they truly believe they have an opportunity to repeal Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground laws in many states, and they are even pushing to repeal concealed carry laws.
The billionaire club will stop at nothing to push their anti-self-defense agenda.  After all, what do they care about your gun rights?  They can afford as many armed security guards as they want.
But we have something the other side does not have: millions upon millions of grassroots gun owners who will let the politicians know that they will be voted right out of office if they dare to undermine our sacred right of self-defense. It is with generous contributions from activist such as you that we can engage in this fight.
So today take just a moment to sign the GOA petition.
Sincerely,
Tim Macy
Vice Chairman
  Click here to sign the Petition
PS –  Even if you don’t live in Florida, it’s important that you sign the petition.  If Florida’s laws are weakened, you can be sure that the same thing will begin to happen in other states.
Billionaires Michael Bloomberg and George Soros are after your gun rights like never before.  The battle starts in Florida, as anti-gun forces attempt to repeal the state’s pro-gun laws.
And after you sign the petition, please consider making a contribution to Gun Owners of America — the only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington — so that we can engage as many gun owners as possible in this battle.

“Vast left-wing conspiracy”

April 14, 2012

Interesting piece from an email.

Remember back in the 1990s when Hillary accused conservatives of being a part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy”?

Well, her left-wing co-conspirators are back at again, this time, placing blame directly on you and me — gun rights activists.

As you have probably heard in recent days, “Stand Your Ground Laws” have been under attack across the nation.

Left-wing anti-gunners are on the prowl day and night seeking to slash and burn pro-gun laws in dozens of states.

For example, gun-grabbers have put so much pressure on Republican Governor Rick Scott of Florida that he wilted to the heat and established a commission that will surely recommend shredding “Stand Your Ground” in Florida.

So much for Rick Scott’s so-called “pro-gun” credentials.

But this “pressure” isn’t just coming from the usual suspects — billionaires Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, and Hillary Clinton — it’s coming from all directions, including from Big Labor bosses.

Put simply, Big Labor’s forced-union dues are a major driving force in this assault on our gun rights.

In a recent interview, AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker placed the “blame” for pro-gun laws on (you guessed it) . . .

. . . “conservative, right-wing policies.

Of course, this shouldn’t be much of a surprise, considering the AFL-CIO is in the tank for anti-gun President Barack Obama and every other gun-grabber running for office.

The AFL-CIO’s Baker went on to say that “stand your ground legislation passed in Florida and . . . in a number of other states” was the work of a coalition of pro-gun legislators and groups from around the country.

If you want to watch the entire sickening video, please click on the image below. To save you some time, the highlights are at these marks: 0:20, 1:32, 1:50, 2:15 and 3:25.

You know as well as I do that YOU are responsible for passage of pro-gun legislation — calls, emails, faxes, petitions and post cards.

But these words should certainly be a wake-up call to ALL gun rights activists — there is another billionaire on the block who wants to destroy your gun rights — it’s name is Big Labor.

While none of this information is new to me (and it may not be new to you), you should know that Big Labor spends more than one billion dollars every election cycle to defeat pro-gun candidates for state legislature and Congress.

If a “conspiracy” truly does exist in American politics today, it’s not a “vast right-wing” one, it’s on the left.

You and I are at a very dangerous point in the fight to protect our gun rights.

With at least one Republican Governor (Florida’s Rick Scott) abandoning any pro-gun principles he may have had in regards to “Stand Your Ground,” there is no telling what gun-grab template this “vast left-wing conspiracy” is crafting at the moment.

If that template is successful in a pro-gun state like Florida, it could be coming to a state capitol near you sooner than you think . . .

. . . with billions of dollars to back it up.

It’s imperative that you stay viglante in the fight to defend our gun rights.

I will do everything in my power to keep you alerted.

Please take action if I ask you to do so in the future.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President
