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.

Republican Leadership Prepared to Relinquish all (Gun) Policy Decisions to Democrats…

 … for the Next Ten Months!


Not a GOA member yet?  Make sure to join Gun Owners of America!


First, the good news.  Last week, you contacted your congressional representatives and demanded a “short term” Continuing Resolution.  They heard you, and every conservative in Washington is echoing this theme.

Now for the bad news.  Even though Republicans just won control of Congress, what’s the first “bright idea” the Republican leadership comes up with after their wave election?

ANSWER: GIVE CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS CONTROL OF THE CONGRESS FOR THE NEXT TEN MONTHS!!!!!   

Thankfully, the overwhelming percentage of conservative Republicans in Washington are opposed to this.  And that’s why we need to keep lighting the fire under them, so they will continue to keep pressing their leadership to stand up to Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Here is what’s at stake: Virtually all spending and policy decisions are made on the giant government-funding bill, called the “continuing resolution” or “CR.”

And it’s in the “CR” where we have been able to defund much of Obama’s anti-gun agenda:  defunding the shotgun import ban, Fast & Furious, the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty, etc.

The current “CR” is slated to expire on December 11. So the Republican House has two choices:

1. It can allow the repudiated Democrats currently in control of the Senate (until January 5) to make all of the spending and policy decisions — which will affect your gun rights — until September 30, 2015. It would do this by passing a so-called “long-term CR” which would set policy and spending until the end of the fiscal year (September 30, 2015).

2. Or it would do a “short-term CR” into January, February, or March. This would allow the newly elected Republican Congress to set spending and policy for the federal government for most of next year.

What difference does it make?

Given Obama’s “veto pen,” all of the pro-gun policy for the next two years will probably be achieved on this bill — or not.

When April 15 hits — and millions of Americans are hit with hundreds of dollars of ObamaFines — we may be able to create a massive fight over ObamaCare’s unconstitutional mandates.

And this could be the best chance that gun owners have of eliminating a backdoor gun ban — where health data is compiled on millions of Americans and used to disarm gun owners (similar to how 175,000 military veterans have already been disarmed).

But we can’t do it without a short-term CR.

Finally, with respect to the anti-gun amnesty provisions Obama is about to illegally promulgate by executive fiat? We can address these in a Republican controlled Congress. But we can’t, so long as Harry Reid is in the catbird’s seat.

So we ask this of Republicans: Why did we elect you? It certainly wasn’t so that you could cede all of the spending and policy decisions to Democrats for 37.5% of your congressional term.

It’s time to show some backbone. And the first step is a short-term CR.

ACTION:  Contact your Representative and urge him to insist on a “short-term CR.”

GOA: We’re Winning on Guns and Amnesty

 
But we need to cut off Obama’s escape routes
“The reason President Obama’s gun control proposals were killed [is] because hundreds of thousands of Americans began slamming the phone lines, and all of the Senators that were leaning towards supporting it suddenly said, ‘Holy cow, the folks back home don’t like this.’ [There] is nothing more powerful than the conservative grassroots when we are engaged and letting our voice be heard.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), June 19, 2013
 
Your grassroots efforts are making a world of difference on Capitol Hill.  But we need to keep the pressure on if we are going to defeat the anti-gun amnesty bill.
We’ve asked you repeatedly to focus your attention on the Senate bill; today, we take a brief look at the House.
But first, here’s a brief update on White House efforts to resurrect gun control.
Biden’s plug goes virtually ignored by media
 
If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?
We’ll never know.  Joe Biden’s Tuesday press conference to renew his push for gun control went almost completely unreported.  The notable exception was an MSNBC report that the NSA scandal made gun control less likely than before.
The liberal media, instead, spent the last couple of days lamenting that “the air had been take out of the push for [the anti-gun immigration bill].”
What will Boehner do on anti-gun amnesty?
While pro-gun House members held an anti-amnesty press conference, your calls and e-mails to “swing” senators lowered the chances that key members of the Senate GOP might go for a do-nothing sell-out “compromise.”
As Senator Ted Cruz told Rush Limbaugh yesterday, “[There] is nothing more powerful than the conservative grassroots when we are engaged and letting our voice be heard.”
All the while, House Speaker John Boehner told reporters, to their horror, that he wouldn’t bring an anti-gun amnesty bill to the floor over the objections of a majority of House Republicans.  According to anti-gun reporter Anne Kornblut of The Washington Post:  “That’s a real tough one.”
And California Congressman Dana Rohrbacher predicted that Boehner would lose his job if he violated that pledge.
So have we won yet?
Boehner was asked by anti-gun reporters whether he might send a conservative immigration bill to a House-Senate conference –- and allow the conference to turn it into an anti-gun monstrosity.  When asked whether he might rely on Democrats to pass an anti-gun conference report, Boehner replied:  “We’ll see when we get there.”
So that’s today’s task:  To make sure Boehner doesn’t use an anti-gun House-Senate conference to circumvent Republicans in the House.
ACTION:  Click here to contact your Representative.  Ask him to insure that no House-passed immigration bill be sent to conference with an anti-gun amnesty bill from the Senate.
