Harry Reid Revives Call for Universal Gun Registry

Harry Reid Revives Call for Universal Gun Registry

Like a vampire who can’t stop sucking the blood of horrific tragedies, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid is once again pushing to suck political gain from the pain of others.

Speaking on the floor of the Senate in the wake of the shooting of three people in Las Vegas, Reid said that the “American people are depending” on the Senate to pass universal gun registry to, supposedly, keep guns out of the hands of people like the Las Vegas killers.

After the Troutdale, Oregon, shooting in a “safety-free school zone,” anti-gun Senator Joe Manchin called for reconsideration of his anti-gun legislation, and one particularly virulent gun-hating TV network took to attacking the Second Amendment every hour on the hour.

And this was before any information at all had come out with respect to the circumstances of the Oregon shooter — other than, of course, he had been egged on by a blood-soaked media intent on encouraging more murders in order to achieve their political objective of gun confiscation.

In Las Vegas, of course, Toomey-Manchin would have been irrelevant because, while the killer-husband was apparently a “prohibited person,” the wife apparently was not.

So, despite the theoretical bars imposed on her by the doctrine of “constructive possession,” as a practical matter, universal background checks and gun registration wouldn’t have stopped her from purchasing an unlimited number of guns.

So, once again, we have a “solution” which would not have solved the supposed “problem,” but rather is nothing more than another effort to bleed two new media-induced tragedies for political gain.  In fact, what might have helped is if someone in the Las Vegas pizza restaurant, other than the targeted police, had been armed.

But we all know that safety is not Reid’s real objective. Or Manchin’s.  Rather, at a time when Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are trying to dry up credit for gun stores and thus eliminate them in large parts of the country, Reid’s universal gun registry legislation (Manchin-Toomey) would make sure that you couldn’t buy a gun if you didn’t have access to a gun store.

Thus, if Obama and Holder succeed in shutting down every gun store within 200 miles of you — and Toomey-Manchin passes — the Second Amendment will be effectively dead to you.

One final point:  If there is anyone who needs a reason to defeat Reid supporters like Mark Begich (Alaska), Mary Landrieu (Louisiana), Mark Pryor (Arkansas), Kay Hagan (North Carolina), Jeanne Shaheen (New Hampshire), Mark Warner (Virginia), John Walsh (Montana), Mark Udall (Colorado), Jeff Merkley (Oregon), Al Franken (Minnesota), and Tom Udall (New Mexico), this is it.

ACTION:  Contact your Senators.  Ask them to oppose Harry Reid’s new push for universal gun registration.

GOA: Fighting Toomey-Manchin Gun Registration

Fighting Toomey-Manchin Gun Registration
And exposing the lies of the Far Left
“According to conservative staffers [on Capitol Hill], Gun Owners of America was the most active outside group in early efforts to block all gun control efforts including Toomey-Manchin.” — The Examiner, April 28, 2013
Your GOA has been on the front lines, fighting for your rights.
While the news media has been focusing on several Obama Administration scandals in recent weeks — and rightfully so — don’t for a minute think that efforts to pass gun control in the Senate have died down.
They haven’t.  The truth is that Representatives Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) are still at work — still trying to pull Senators over to their anti-gun side.
Sen. Toomey told the Philadelphia Inquirer recently that he is looking “to bring some more folks on board” — and that if successful, “then of course it would be worth bringing [gun control] up again.”
Both he and Manchin are still at it, trying to twist arms and coerce people over to his side.
Congress is just finishing up its Memorial Day break, so you are encouraged to resume contacting them now that they will soon be getting back to work.  Let them know your approval (or disapproval) of their recent votes in the U.S. Senate.
To this end, GOA has just updated its website to give you the ammunition you need to hold your Senators accountable:
NOTE:  In regard to the Senate voting records, you can click on the title of each vote to read an explanation of each vote.  And regarding the grades that are posted, you will note that the following Senators saw their grades drop as a result of their recent votes IN FAVOR of gun control:
Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
Roger Wicker (R-MS)
Dean Heller (R-NV)
Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Pat Toomey (R-PA)
Joe Manchin (D-WV)
Gun Owners of America has continued to expose the gun grabbers’ lies, and we have continued to lobby House and Senate offices in opposition to gun control.
Your continued support helps keep us in the fight.
And every new person you encourage to sign up for our free email alerts or for a GOA membership gives us a louder voice on Capital Hill.
As noted by the Examiner (above), your GOA was the most active group in blocking gun control.  But that was only possible because of your loud voice backing us up.
As stated by Slate in April:  “While [GOA’s] bank account is relatively paltry … its members often get Tea Party loud, inundating lawmakers’ offices with calls.”
That’s a testimony to your hard work!

GOA Alert: Senator Joe Manchin Steps up his Campaign of Lies

Senator Joe Manchin Steps up his Campaign of Lies

Don’t let your Senator fall for his “superficial” changes!

Recently, we alerted you to the intense pressure that pro-gun Senators are experiencing right now. You guys unleashed a torrent of grassroots activism in response, and we are starting to get great feedback as to where Senators currently stand.

Within the past 48 hours, we have seen clear evidence that West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin and his staff have openly lied about the status of talks with two Republican Senators.

Manchin is claiming that two Senators who originally opposed his background-registration check amendment would flip their votes if “superficial changes” were made to the text.

But at the request of Gun Owners of America, a prominent constituent spoke with his U.S. Senator in regard to the allegations that Manchin was making about that particular Senator. The constituent reported that his Senator called Manchin’s representations a “lie.”

In a separate case, Manchin claimed to have been in talks with a particular Senate office; but three staffers who would have been part of those talks denied the truth of Manchin’s public representations.

Since Manchin had earlier lied about the status of talks with Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn, a standard operating procedure is becoming clear: Manchin is obsessively lying in order to create a false sense of momentum.

Manchin is not the only Bloomberg puppet in the Senate. On Tuesday, California Senator Barbara Boxer filibustered an amendment that would extend firearm owners’ protection in national parks to Army Corps of Engineer projects.

But, in a Senate where a senator’s word has traditionally been regarded as sacred, the first-full-term West Virginia senator has shown a tremendous willingness to engage in open fraud in order to destroy the Second Amendment.

Manchin is now circulating a list of bribes he is trying to use to buy off Republican votes which GOA predicted would happen. Some of these bribes, like an amendment which would supposedly ameliorate the nasty implications of his amendment for rural states like Alaska, are merely superficial and ineffectual.

Others, like opening the NICS list to local police, are just massive violations of individual rights allowing many names to be inserted into the NICS system without due process.

ACTION: Click here to contact your U.S. Senators. Warn them that, in violation of the Senate’s most sacred traditions, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is engaging in fraud, lies, and bribes in order to advance gun control.

GOA Alert!: Senators may resurrect defeated gun control

Senators may resurrect defeated gun control
after making cosmetic changes

“A source close to the Senate negotiations [says] that two senators who voted against the background check bill would vote for it after minor, superficial changes.” — Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC, May 6, 2013

ACTION: Senators who voted pro-gun last month are under intense pressure by Senate Democrats and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s hit ads to switch their votes.  We need to keep applying the heat and let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM WASHINGTON, DC. It’s not over yet.  We can’t give up.

We won a dramatic victory last month.  But the Left has not raised the white flag yet, and they are using out-of-state rabble rousers to harass Senators who voted against the Toomey-Schumer-Manchin national gun registry just a couple of weeks ago.

It is a national gun registry because the Obama administration is copying the names of gun purchasers from 4473’s when it conducts its annual inspections of gun shops.  If everyone has to have a 4473 when they buy a gun — even through most private sales — then everyone will be in the Obama administration’s database.

Few things are more hypocritical than the spectacle of gun-grabbers whining that they don’t support national gun registries just as they get off Air Force One on a trip from Hartford, Connecticut where they cheered the enactment of a state gun registry.

THE BULLYING IS CONTINUING. Senate Democrats are bullying the Senators who voted correctly on Toomey-Manchin-Schumer.  Those who are under the most pressure to switch their votes are:

Alaska
Mark Begich        (202) 224-3004
Lisa Murkowski     (202) 224-6665

Arizona
Jeff Flake         (202) 224-4521

Georgia
Saxby Chambliss    (202) 224-3521
Johnny Isakson     (202) 224-3643

Montana
Max Baucus         (202) 224-2651

North Dakota
Heidi Heitkamp     (202) 224-2043

New Hampshire
Kelly Ayotte      (202) 224-3324

Nevada
Dean Heller        (202) 224-6244

Ohio
Rob Portman        (202) 224-3353

Tennessee
Lamar Alexander    (202) 224-4944
Bob Corker         (202) 224-3344

If your Senator is a Republican, or is mentioned in the list above, it is imperative that you contact them again!

Right now, there are several Public Policy Polling surveys that claim Senators who voted pro-gun have lost public support.  It’s hogwash!

Gun owners can click here to read GOA’s analysis of why these PPP polls are fiction.  These polls are nothing more than a ploy to sway weak-knee Senators into reversing their votes.

Some Senators are even beginning to wonder if they are going to be punished at the polls for voting pro-gun.  And that’s why we need you right now to stay active and engaged in this fight.

CONTACT INFO:  Contact your Senators, if possible, at 202-224-3121.  Jam their phone lines. If it is not possible for you to call, then use the prewritten letter we have provided to e-mail them.

Tell them to vote against the expansion of background checks as they will allow for the registration of gun owners.And let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.

GOA Alert: Obama Administration Trying to Grab Guns Through Executive Order

GoaLogoEmail
Obama Administration Trying to
Grab Guns Through Executive Order

Tell HHS their new regs are crazy

Gun Owners of America [has] spent the months since Newtown doing tremendous damage, insisting that expanded background checks will lead to a gun registry.” – New York Times, April 4, 2013

It’s quite a complement when the New York Times thinks that you are doing “tremendous damage.”  But you can be sure that the other side is not going to go away quietly.

And sure enough, the Obama Administration is trying to unilaterally undo our recent victory in the Senate – and to undo the “damage” that all of us inflicted together.

But first, a little history.

Remember when Senators Pat Toomey, Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer formed an unholy alliance during the recent gun battle on Capitol Hill?  Remember how their amendment would have encouraged your psychiatrist to turn you in to the FBI’s gun ban list?

And you remember how we stopped that provision, because over 40 senators found it to be odious and a violation of the Second Amendment?

Well, guess what?  Barack Obama has just concluded that “he don’t need no stinkin’ Senate.”

Instead, Secretary Kathleen “ObamaCare” Sebelius – and her Department of Health and Human Services – has promulgated regulations which would, by executive fiat, waive all federal privacy laws and encourage you doctor to report you to the FBI.

Understand a couple of things:  First, the standard which your doctor would use to turn you in is embodied in Clinton-era ATF language and in the anti-gun Veterans Disarmament Act of 2007. Specifically, you doctor would “drop a dime” on you if he suspected you were even a slight “danger to yourself of others” or were “unable to manage your financial affairs.”

So if they say you can’t balance your checkbook, then you lose your constitutional rights.

But there’s another problem:  The day these regulations become law, lawyers will be lining up to sue “deep-pocket” psychiatrists for every case where they failed to turn in a patient to NICS – if the patient subsequently engages in a horrific act.

The bottom line?  Any psychiatrist who failed to report all of his patients to the NICS system risks losing everything if any of them engages in harmful conduct.  Soon the rule of thumb will be: See a shrink; lose your guns.

And the regulations will apply to private, as well as government-employed psychiatrists.

The bad news is that 165,000 military veterans have already lost their gun rights because of the “see a VA shrink, lose your gun rights” precedent from the Clinton-Bush era.

Sadly, what happened to military veterans has now begun in the private sector – especially in places like New York, after they recently passed their misnamed SAFE Act.

According to gun rights reporter, Dan Roberts, firearms are now being confiscated from gun owners because of their mental health information. For example:

“[John Doe] received a letter from the Pistol Permit Department informing him that his license was immediately revoked upon information that he was seeing a therapist for anxiety and had been prescribed an anxiety drug. He was never suicidal, never violent, and has no criminal history.”

So now taking anxiety pills can result in one’s forfeiting their Second Amendment rights in New York!

This is where the gun haters want to push their agenda.  And this is one reason why background checks are so dangerous – because they give government bureaucrats the opportunity to deny law-abiding people their constitutionally-protected rights.

But the good news is this:  The HHS rulemaking is still at an early stage, and HHS is (no doubt reluctantly) taking the views of the general public.

ACTION: Go to the Federal Register – at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-04-23/pdf/2013-09602.pdf – and respond to the regs entitled “HIPAA Privacy Rule and the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).”

Let the HHS know how you feel about waiving all federal privacy laws for people who seek counseling.

You may submit your comments at www.regulations.gov

Also, be sure to tell your congressmen that you oppose the “see a shrink, lose your guns” regs issued by the HHS.  Ask him to issue his own comments as well.

The regs themselves lay out several ways that you may submit your opposition.  The comment period ends on June 7, 2013.

Manchin: Gun bill to be reintroduced

Apparently Toomey figured it out…Manchin a bit ‘slower’? Or maybe his constituents did not hold his feet to a hot enough fire?

Toomey says he won’t take new shot at gun bill

“My own view is very simple: The Senate has had its vote. We’ve seen the outcome of that vote. I am not aware of any reason to believe that if we had the vote again that we’d have a different outcome,” Toomey said on a conference call.He was responding to a question about a New York Times report that Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.) was working on tweaking the bill the two cosponsored with an eye toward another vote.

Selling Out on Guns

Two senators have brokered a Faustian bargain on gun purchaser background checks that they hope will allow the Democrats’ anti-gun legislation to pass the Senate.

Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA), both of whom have “A” ratings with the National Rifle Association, have assigned the creepy Orwellian name, the “Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act,” to their legislation.
