GOA: Good News You May Have Missed

While Senate Confirms Murthy Nomination,
Getting Rid of Reid was Worth the High Cost

We’re not going to tell you we’re happy about the way things have gone in Congress the last week.

Obama’s anti-gun executive actions were funded until September 30, and anti-gun political hack

Vivek Murthy was confirmed as Surgeon General by a 51-43 largely party-line vote. (See how your legislators voted below.)

It was hardly unexpected.

Pro-gunners played a central role in taking away congressional power from liberal loons like Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi — and soon-to-be-jobless losers like John Walsh (D-MT), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Udall (D-CO), and Mary Landrieu (D-LA).

And these former “friends of the Second Amendment” gave us a nice knife-in-the-back on their way out the door.  This is the reason you never get too close to a rabid dog.

We’re not going to tell you that victory doesn’t matter.  Or that defeat doesn’t matter.  They do.

But for those who are feeling down-in-the-dumps, we would make four points:

FIRST, WE WON THE TWO CRUCIAL BATTLES THAT MATTERED.  We sent Harry Reid and his cadre of clowns swirling down the toilet bowl of history.  And we have set up an electoral template that will ensure that they don’t regain power in 2016.

In addition, we killed Obama’s legislative gun control agenda. Had we lost the battle against Universal Gun Registration — a.k.a., the Toomey-Manchin background checks — it would have been a serious setback.  But we didn’t, and it wasn’t.

SECOND, WE CREATED, FROM SCRATCH, A REBEL ARMY IN THE HOUSE THAT IS READY TO BOLT AGAINST JOHN BOEHNER’S PERFIDY.  When we started fighting the unconstitutional, anti-gun Cromnibus, every indication was that we would get zero Republican votes.  Zero.

Instead, after a loud and boisterous grassroots campaign, we got 67 — almost a third of the caucus.  And by forcing Boehner to spend an entire day begging, one-by-one, for votes, this means that Boehner will be in less of a position to betray us on an unconstitutional, anti-gun amnesty bill.

THIRD, ELEMENTS OF THE PRO-GUN MOVEMENT ARE NOW CONSIDERABLY LESS LIKELY TO SUPPORT ANTI-GUN DEMOCRATS LIKE HARRY REID, JOE MANCHIN, AND MARK BEGICH, AS THEY DID BEFORE.

Save for three exceptions, all Senate Democrats voted for the anti-gun Murthy.  And of the three Democrats who voted pro-gun, two of them are being discussed as gubernatorial candidates in two years.  This means we are facing the old pattern in which “red state Democrats” will only vote pro-gun if they are facing an upcoming election.  Otherwise, they revert to voting anti-gun.

The good news is that this pattern has now become painfully obvious to virtually all of the gun movement.  So, hopefully, other gun groups won’t be fooled into supporting anti-gun Democrats and acting as the instrumentalities of their own defeat.

FOURTH, NOW VIVEK MURTHY IS SO DISCREDITED THAT NO ONE IS GOING TO BELIEVE THE GARBAGE SPEWING OUT OF HIS MOUTH OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS.

Gun Owners of America has always believed that the Second Amendment is worth fighting for, even when we are faced with huge odds.  The battle over Obama’s legislative gun control — and the Toomey-Manchin background checks — was initially viewed as hopeless.  Yet, we won it, and the importance of that victory was transformational.

We also would have liked to defeat Harry Reid’s scheme to confirm Vivek Murthy.  And, while we don’t like to lose, there have been a lot of benefits which have flowed from undertaking the battle.

In a few months, the government-funding bills for the “fiscal year” running fromOctober 1, 2015, through September 30, 2016, will begin to move.  It will be “a new season.”  And we will start fresh with another opportunity to block Obama’s unconstitutional, anti-gun “executive actions.”

We hope you will be with us in the fight.

ACTION:  Click on the links below to see how your legislators voted.  If they voted to support the

Constitution, then thank them.  If they voted wrong, then express your disappointment.  You can see they voted here:

* House vote on the anti-gun funding bill (Cromnibus)

* Senate vote on the anti-gun funding bill (Cromnibus)

* Senate vote on Vivek Murthy as Surgeon General

NOTE:  The cromnibus bill number is HR 83.  But be warned:  The description of the bill refers to the tiny legislative vehicle on which the gigantic funding bill was attached for parliamentary reasons.  So just realize that the votes you are viewing in actuality refer to the vote on the 1,600 page amendment funding the entire government.

Gun Stuff…..

Facts mean little to Bloomberg’s anti gun puppet groups.

Lies and misinformation are everything…

Are you surprised Obama would appoint another anti gun ‘Progressive’. elitist person to fill a slot in his administration?

Surgeon General Nominee Would Be Bad for America’s Gun Rights…

President Obama has nominated anti-gun activist Vivek Murthy for the post of U.S. Surgeon General. Particularly given the president’s determination to reinvigorate taxpayer-funded gun control propaganda under the guise of public health research, confirmation of Dr. Murthy would pose a serious threat to the rights of gun owners. Dr. Murthy’s résumé of partisan activism on behalf of gun control, in which he specifically leveraged his status as a doctor, is detailed at length in a letter NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox sent on Tuesday to Senators Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Harry Reid (D-Nev.), reasserting NRA’s opposition to his nomination.CC-Murthy-Quote

The Boehner-Pelosi ANTI-GUN Government-Funding Deal:

The Boehner-Pelosi ANTI-GUN Government-Funding Deal: 
“We have to pass it to find out what’s in it”

“The Republicans [want to] agree to an omnibus continuing resolution [which] will be all the way from now through September 30th.  Meaning the Democrats, even though they lost, are going to run the budget show for yet another year, and we’re all sitting out here and asking ourselves ‘why’ and scratching our heads.” — Rush Limbaugh, December 8, 2014

It’s no wonder why Washington fears our grass-roots activists so intensely.

The $1.1 trillion deal between Boehner and Pelosi to fund the government untilSeptember 30, 2015, was supposed to be anointed by every member of the Republican caucus.

But, thankfully, you’ve given valuable aid and support to several dozen conservative members of

the House of Representatives.

PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK!

“Gun Owners of America warned against doing exactly what the Republican leadership is planning in a November 17 alert.” — David Codrea, The Examiner, December 8, 2014

Now, because of your efforts, between 40 and 50 Republican representatives have ALREADY jumped ship and are opposing the Republican leadership, says Rep. John Fleming (R-LA), who is a also a GOA Life Member.  And with Rush Limbaugh on Monday echoing the message we have been spreading for the last two weeks, the hemorrhaging of the Boehner-Pelosi loyalists can only spread.

This means that at least a fifth — and maybe more — of Pelosi’s minions will have to be ordered to support Boehner for it to pass.  And Pelosi has made it clear to the press that the bill will have to be altered to be satisfactory to her in order for her to provide those votes.

The $1.1 trillion bill — which may run for thousands of pages — will be sprung soon, in anticipation of a House vote on Wednesday or Thursday.  This is precisely the type of ObamaCare-like fraud and secrecy that Republicans said they would abandon when they took control.

WILL GUN POLICY BE SET BY THIS ANTI-GUN CONGRESS?

On guns, there will be both pro-gun and anti-gun provisions which will be carried forward from previous years.

But if we could just delay writing the bill till January — when Republicans will control both the House and the Senate — there is so much more we could do:

* We could push to eliminate the Schumer amendment, which prohibits non-violent Americans who have made mistakes from EVER getting their gun rights back.

* We could stop the ATF from creating regional gun registries by copying 4473’s during routine annual inspections.

* We could put the “kibosh” on the anti-gun aspects of ObamaCare, including the entering of gun-related information in the federally run health database.

Instead, we are faced with a Boehner-Pelosi “December surprise” which effectively gives Obama a pass with respect to all of his illegal actions on guns and immigration.

And what about last Thursday’s House vote, where Republicans declared, in effect, that they were very, very angry that Obama had stripped them of their powers?  MSNBC’s Sam Stein put it pretty well when he said this was just a Boehner trick to allow hapless Republicans to “show their rage … without undermining everything we have to do.”

One more thing — and that is the precedent this may create for Boehner’s actions during the 114th Congress which is coming up: According to Politico’s Glenn Thrush, there is an open question as to whether a Boehner-Pelosi deal to crush Republicans could cause Boehner to “acknowledge reality and actually start passing bigger, more important pieces of legislation [like an anti-gun amnesty] using this across-the-aisle Nancy Pelosi thing….”

ACTIONContact your Representative.  Tell him or her to vote against the Boehner-Pelosi “you-have-to-pass-it-to-know-what’s-in-it” giant non-transparent funding bill.

Loretta Lynch Needs to Come Clean — Or Be Defeated!

Loretta Lynch Needs to Come Clean — Or Be Defeated!

Loretta Lynch — nominated to replace Attorney General Eric Holder — is making the rounds among Senators.  She is schmoozing them and trying to win their votes with sugary one-on-one private meetings in which she says nothing.

But we know the drill.  Eric Holder and Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan did the same.  In the case of Sotomayor, Kagan, and now Lynch, they had a limited paper trail on guns, and professed to believe in the Second Amendment.

Then, the day after they were confirmed, they became our worst enemies.  And it became pretty clear that they hated us — and the Second Amendment — all along.

There’s no absolute way to weed out lying anti-constitution nominees.  But we need to do a better job than we’ve been doing.

For this reason, Gun Owners of America is asking Senators to force Lynch to go on record with respect to the legality of anti-gun actions by the Obama administration.  Not to determine whether she agrees with the President, but to hear her views on the legality of his actions.

For instance, in some parts of the country the ATF is routinely copying all dealer 4473’s and bound book entries in connection with its routine annual inspection — thus creating ade facto national gun registry of law-abiding gun owners.  And make no mistake about it:  If regionally held records can be accessed in Washington by the push of a keystroke, it’s a national gun registry — prohibited by federal law.

Does Lynch believe this process is unlawful?  If not, her disregard for the law makes her unqualified to serve as attorney general.

The Obama administration has tried to outlaw the importation of shotguns and ammunition.  And it is being urged to ban the import of semi-autos, thus circumventing Congress’ decision to reject that ban.  In the case of shotguns, the administration has argued that they have no “sporting purpose.”  Huh??!!

Irrespective of whose signature was on that ban, we know the real “mover” was Eric Holder and the ATF.

And then there’s Operation Fast and Furious.  Does Lynch have a problem with that?

Does she favor semi-auto and magazine bans?

What about ATF’s illegal efforts to register multiple sales of firearms?  Or the administration’s efforts to financially strangle gun dealers and manufacturers by labeling them as “risky businesses” under Operation Choke Point?

All of these questions need to be answered.  And, if Lynch refuses to answer them or answers them wrong, she needs to be opposed.

What about the argument that the defeat of Lynch keeps Eric Holder in place — given that he has said he would serve until she was confirmed?

It’s not an easy problem.  But we see no moral way that Senators can vote for Lynch if she refuses to say whether she would abide by the law.

And, while Holder’s hatred of the law has pretty well discredited him, Lynch could still use the lame-duck Attorney General gig as a stepping stone for the Supreme Court.

ACTIONContact your Senators.  Ask them to vote against the confirmation of Loretta Lynch unless she fully and satisfactorily states that she will uphold the Second Amendment and gun owners’ rights
