I’ve got bad news:
All signs say that Senator Amy Klobuchar will continue her anti-gun crusade in the United States Senate
.More on that in a minute.I know I don’t have to tell you that cutting through the election-year red tape can be difficult.
Every politician wants to be able to say they support the Second Amendment this time of year.
But many don’t want you to find how they’ve trampled on your rights while in office.
Believe it or not, they’ll just tell you what you want to hear in an election year and then turn against your rights once safely in office — and they’ll do it every year if they can get away with it.
That’s why as a resident of Minnesota, and as a gun owner and patriot, it’s vital that you turn up the heat on your politicians. Especially those running for the U.S. Senate.
Right now, we have the most anti-gun administration in nearly 20 years.
The last time such a rabid anti-gunner was in charge in Washington, we got the Brady Bill, a ban on an entire class of semi-automatic hunting and target rifles, and millions of gun owners lost their rights.
The 1990’s gun control crusade was spearheaded through “the art of compromise” by both parties.
Unfortunately, it’s virtually certain that whoever wins the White House, gun owners will have an uphill climb.
And that’s why it’s so crucial to find out who really has a history of walking the walk when it comes to protecting your gun rights.
The good news is that US. Senate candidate Kurt Bills has a solid pro-gun record!
Last year, the Minnesota legislature passed a bill to expand your self-defense rights and prohibit the governor and state officials from suspending your right to keep and bear arms in a state of emergency.1
This bill was sponsored by pro-gun lawmakers, including Representative Kurt Bills, who supported the most pro-gun language possible.
Unfortunately, the bill fell apart due to Governor Dayton’s veto, and weak-kneed politicians who didn’t have the guts to push for an override.
That’s why when State Representative Kurt Bills returned his National Association for Gun Rights Survey 100% in favor of your right to keep and bear arms — I knew I had to tell you right away.
*** State Rep. Kurt Bills specifically outlined his plan to both oppose gun control and advance your rights;
*** State Rep. Kurt Bills vocally opposes the UN “Small Arms Treaty” and all international gun-control schemes; and,
*** Rep. Kurt Bills pledged not just to vote pro-gun, but to actively push for pro-gun reforms as a United States Senator.
However, there is some bad news.
Senator Amy Klobuchar refused to return her National Association for Gun Rights Candidate Survey.
This isn’t surprising, after all, Senator Klobuchar’s extensive anti-gun past will make your bones shake.
*** Sen. Klobuchar voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan;2
*** Sen. Klobuchar voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor;3
*** Sen. Klobuchar voted to confirm Obama’s anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder who is responsible for the Fast and Furious gun-smuggling operation that left two Americans dead.4
“I did favor extending the ban on assault weapons. Unfortunately, we didn’t prevail,” exclaimed Klobuchar.
*** Senator Klobuchar has publicly supported an extension of the so-called “assault weapons” ban.5
*** Senator Klobuchar refused to sign her opposition to the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty.”6
What other anti-gun positions is Senator Klobuchar hiding?
We don’t know because she refused to go on record and answer her survey.
And when politicians with such an anti-gun record refuse to answer the tough questions we ask, it’s a virtual guarantee their assault on your rights and liberties will continue.
What’s worse, Senator Klobuchar openly attacked grassroots political movements like NAGR by supporting the “DISCLOSE Act,” which would ban discussion of a candidates voting record before an election.7
That leaves little doubt about how Senator Klobuchar really feels about our constitutionally-protected rights — the First and Second Amendments included.
Nothing makes a zealous prosecutor, like Klobuchar, more giddy than turning more law-abiding gun owners into criminals with the flick of a switch or the passage of a bill.
It makes my blood boil more than when politicians play fast and loose with our God-given rights.
That’s why it is vital that you take immediate action.
But there isn’t much time.
Here’s what you can do to help:
1.) Thank U.S. Senate Candidate Kurt Bills for pledging 100% support for your right to keep and bear arms, and for supporting your rights as a State Representative.
2.) Give Senator Klobuchar an earful! Demand she abandon her gun-grabbing agenda immediately and return her National Association for Gun Right’s Survey 100% in favor of your gun rights!
There’s no doubt about it, the upcoming election will have a greater impact on our Second Amendment rights than any other election in our lifetime.
And with so much at stake, I’m really going above and beyond to make sure every person in Minnesota who cares about the Second Amendment knows exactly where their candidates stand.
And I’m counting on good folks like you to help make that possible.
Please consider chipping in $15 or $20 to help the National Association for Gun Rights keep up the fight against the gun-grabbers.
But more importantly, it’s vital you contact Sen. Amy Klobuchar and demand answers today.
There’s not a moment to lose.
Please act today!
