Representative Stockman is Pushing Bill to Stop Gun Registration and Confiscation
GOA issues open letter after first CT citizen has guns confiscated

“The duty of every liberty-loving Connecticut citizen is to [take] up the mantle of defending his fellow citizens and the U.S. and Connecticut Constitutions, against attack from a lawless government.” — GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt, in an Open Letter to Connecticut citizens

The first arrest has now been made under the draconian Connecticut law that was passed last year in the aftermath of the Newtown shooting.

Earlier this month, Connecticut police arrested James Toigo and confiscated his “assault rifle” after he allegedly shot a squirrel in his yard. Not only did police seize the rifle (and many magazines) from the 65-year old Toigo, they also confiscated several of his legally registered firearms.

James Toigo is not a murderer. He has committed no violent crime. He is a law-abiding citizen who has been victimized by the laws of his state.

But Mr. Toigo is not alone. As many as 300,000 law-abiding gun owners have failed to comply with Connecticut’s updated gun registration requirements. The new registry is an update of older registration requirements that were in place at the time of the tragic shooting.

The state’s largest newspaper, the Hartford Courant, has called for the arrest of the 300,000 non-complying gun owners.

“The bottom line is that the state must try to enforce the law,” the paper opinedback in February. “If you want to disobey the law, you should be prepared to face the consequences.”

And at least one top aide in the Governor’s administration, Michael P. Lawler, has indicated that the state will punish those who missed the registration deadline.

Rep. Stockman introduces bill to end registration and confiscation

Our great friend in Congress, Steve Stockman, has introduced H.R. 4380, a bill that would cut off federal Justice Department funds to any state which attempts to confiscate and register firearms.

H.R. 4380 would target any state that sets up a gun registry or establishes a system to confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens. And any city, state or municipality that attempts such actions would suffer the loss of their federal Justice Department grants.

Will that be enough of a threat to make these gun-grabbing cities and states back off and respect the gun rights of their citizens? We believe so. Money is tight, and the loss of any federal funds has a dramatic impact on budgets.

Because this is a Congressional election year and because the recent special elections gave bloody noses to those who were on the side of gun control, we believe that many Congressmen who normally sit on the fence will see it makes good sense to support this very sensible and necessary legislation.

And, if we can get dozens of House members to cosponsor Stockman’s bill, it will make it much easier to add H.R. 4380 as an amendment to a must-pass government funding bill which is scheduled to be considered in September.

Gun Owners has received a lot of mail from our members who are very worried about this new trend of municipal gun confiscations. We heard you, and we worked closely with Congressman Stockman’s office to develop this solution.

Now it is up to you to help us put the pressure directly on your Representative.

ACTION: Please Take Action and urge your Representative to cosponsor H.R. 4380, a bill that would cut off federal Justice Department funds to any state which attempts to confiscate and register firearms.

“Past comments [Vivek Murthy] made in support of gun control have drawn strong opposition from the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America.” — The Huffington Post, March 17, 2014

SURGEON GENERAL PICK ON LIFE SUPPORT, THANKS TO GUN OWNERS

It’s not time to declare victory yet.

But it is interesting that the White House is publicly considering delaying the vote on the Vivek Murthy nomination to be Surgeon General until after the November elections.

We alerted you in early February to the problems with this anti-gun nominee for the post of Surgeon General. As a physician and pro-Obama activist, Murthy actively advocated gun bans, magazine bans, and gun registration.

According to yesterday’s Huffington Post, Murthy’s support for a ban on semi-automatic firearms “isn’t sitting well with powerful leaders in the gun lobby” like Gun Owners of America. And today, the liberal Huffington Post said that “bellyaching” from “Gun Owners of America has given unfortunate pause to common sense in Congress.”

An unfortunate pause to common sense? Well, we did point out the Huffington Post is liberal.

Thankfully, because of the united pro-gun opposition to Murthy, ten Democrats are now considering voting against this Surgeon General nomination. Since the only Republican defection thus far is Mark Kirk of Illinois, this would be enough to defeat Murthy, even with the illegal nomination-related rules changes Democrat Leader Harry Reid enacted last November.

Interestingly, according to Saturday’s New York Times, one of the options considered by the White House would be to delay the nomination until January, when, it hopes, newly reelected “red state” Democrats like Mark Begich (D-AK), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), John Walsh (D-MT), Mark Udall (D-CO), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), and Mark Warner (D-VA) would be once again free to vote anti-gun.

Hopefully, gun owners will have something to say about the outcome of these and other races.

STUTZMAN RECIPROCITY BILL WOULD STICK IT TO FASCIST STATES LIKE NY AND CT

By now, you’ve probably heard that states like New York and Connecticut have responded to Newtown by going into “full confiscation mode:”

* New York City is sending out letters to registered gun owners, demanding that they relinquish guns holding more than seven rounds.

* In Connecticut, the Hartford Courant is insisting that the state imprison up to 300,000 gun owners who have not complied with the most recent registration demands.

All of the time, we are receiving e-mails from gun owners in these states and elsewhere, demanding that something be done about these atrocities against the Constitution.

We are working with litigators to try to challenge states such as these in court — in the face of a judiciary which is increasingly packed by Obama with anti-gun judges.

But one thing we can do to force states like New York and Connecticut to recognize the Constitution is to pass reciprocity legislation like H.R. 578, which has been introduced by Congressman Marlin Stutzman in the House and currently has 38 cosponsors.

Why is this important?

Because, under H.R. 578, federal law would compel states like New York and Connecticut to “allow” concealed carry holders from other states to walk their streets without being compelled to submit their names to state gun registries.

To those who would argue that New York and Connecticut would violate federal law and never allow this, our response is “Make my day!” H.R. 578 would put Andrew Cuomo and Daniel Malloy in the role of constitutional bigots, standing in the school house door in order to defy federal law.

(And besides, the Supreme Court ruled in McDonald v. Chicago that the Congress does have power, under the 14th Amendment, to protect American citizens who are having their gun rights violated by states and localities.)

Some believe there is going to be an electoral revolution in Connecticut this November or a few years hence. Nothing could add more fuel to that fire than the realization of residents that people from other states have constitutional rights, but not them.

H.R. 578 is, by far, the preferable reciprocity bill, because it recognizes constitutional carry states like Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Vermont and Wyoming — and does not require their residents to change their laws or get permits in order to benefit from it.

Another bill (H.R. 2959), being pushed by another gun group, would require Vermont to repeal its pro-gun laws and would require residents of constitutional carry states to get optional permits. While that’s not horrible, it does deter other states from adopting constitutional carry laws.

In addition, the Cornyn-Thune counterpart in the Senate, like H.R. 578, recognizes constitutional carry states — and is the version that garnered a supermajority of 57 votes in the Senate just last year. So what would be the point in passing the less preferable version in the House, only to have it sent to an interminable House-Senate conference!

H.R. 578 is the preferable reciprocity bill. But we need to increase its current 38 cosponsors.

ACTION: Contact your Representative . Ask him to cosponsor H.R. 578. Tell him he should cosponsor H.R. 578, even if he has already sponsored a reciprocity bill which is not as good.

Idiocy! More Idiocy!! Race War! Protests! Racism!

“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? It is feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

The Consummate Liberal Hypocrites

Obama is the prototypical face of Leftist hypocrites, who live the life of the rich and famous all the while feigning to be a “man of the people.” This week for example, the Obama family is on a $100 million taxpayer-funded “heritage tour” of Africa.

Obama is in the top bracket of “One Percenters” who, along with Michael Moore and other members of the Socialist Bourgeoisie, rally the 99 Percenters with their slick classist rhetoric designed to lock up the votes of the Left’s largest constituency — those they have enslaved on Poverty Plantations across the nation.

Who can forget Bill Clinton’s staunch defense of women’s rights, all while he was groping White House visitors and having sex with at least one intern — approximately the same age as his daughter — in the Oval Office? Who can forget his finger wagging lies to the American people, and his henchmen’s efforts to destroy the reputations of the women who dared tell the truth about him? This is the same Slick Willie who said: “The road to tyranny, we must never forget, begins with the destruction of the truth.”

Poor Al Gore, who produces more hot air than any dilapidated coal plant, takes private jets around the globe to pontificate about “global warming” all while leaving one of the biggest carbon footprints around. Recall, if you will, that Gore sold his failing cable network to oil-rich Islamofascist Al-Jazeera TV for $500 million, and pushed the closing of that “deal” in order to avoid Obama’s impending capital-gains tax increase. Nothing hypocritical there…

John “Ketchup” Kerry married one heiress and then another. His current wife, Teresa, is the former wife of Republican Jack Heinz, and she took control of his fortune after his death. John and Teresa manage to scrape by with just seven vacation homes. They also own a $7 million yacht, which, as you recall, he parked in a Rhode Island marina in order to dodge $500,000 in taxes that his home state of Massachusetts would have assessed on that purchase. But he is a “man of the people”…
