Make Sure You Vote Tomorrow!

Make Sure You Vote Tomorrow!

ACTION:  Please get to the polls by the end of tomorrow night.  There are a multitude of pro-gun candidates on the ballot this Election Day.  So please make sure you check out GOA’s 2014 Election Guide and share it with all your pro-gun friends and family.

Prospects Look Good on this Election Eve

It’s no understatement that tomorrow is a big election.

Anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg has committed to spend $50 million to help advance gun control nationwide.  And he’s already made good on his threat, spending millions of dollars on anti-gun candidates and ballot initiatives around the country.

Not surprisingly, there are reports of voter fraud surfacing in certain localities — given that many state laws make it difficult to prevent illegal aliens from voting, and the current White House has sued states which have tried to put up barriers to such illegalities.

But all of that will not matter if America’s pro-gun majority gets out and votes tomorrow.

Opinion polls indicate that Americans are disgusted with the direction our country is going, and so by Tuesday’s end, we expect that there will be a huge change in the Senate.

Even the liberal Washington Post estimates there is a 96% chance that Harry Reid will be dethroned from his position of power.  But again, this won’t happen unless pro-gun voters around the country get to the polls and change the make-up of the U.S. Senate.

The opinion polls are encouraging to be sure, but NO CHANGE will occur if good people don’t actually get out and vote.

So please utilize and circulate GOA’s 2014 Election Guide — and encourage your pro-gun family and friends to get to the polls.

Have a Happy Election Day

Big Win for Gun Owners in Colorado

Big Win for Gun Owners in Colorado
– Bloomberg Money Helps Cochran Squeak By

Dear Friend of the Second Amendment,

Gun owners achieved a big win in Colorado during Tuesday’s elections, but also suffered a narrow loss in Mississippi.

In Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, GOA-endorsed candidate Ken Buck won his primary by an astounding 20 points.

This is great news for gun owners across the country.

Gun Owners of America doesn’t look for candidates who will merely vote right, but do nothing else. We look for strong leadership qualities and the willingness to stand up to the powerful elite in Washington D.C., and Ken Buck is that type of person.

In Mississippi, we suffered a narrow defeat in the race for U.S. Senate, with incumbent Thad Cochran garnering 50.8% of the vote to GOA-supported Chris McDaniel’s 49.2%.

Anti-gun billionaire activist Michael Bloomberg dumped $250,000 into the state to defeat McDaniel. Bloomberg has pledged to spend $50 million to push his radical gun control agenda, and GOA will continue to fight him at every turn.

Across the country, GOA supports candidates who stand 100% for your Second Amendment rights, and we thank the members and supporters who helped make Tuesday’s win possible.

Click here to chip in $10 or $20 to help us achieve even more victories.

Again, thank you for your support of the Second Amendment.

Sincerely,

Tim Macy
Vice Chairman
Gun Owners of America

P.S. In Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, gun owners across the country gained a strong ally in Ken Buck. Ken joins other GOA-supported candidates who won their primaries, including Dave Brat (VA-7), Jody Hice (GA-10), Alex Mooney (WV-2) and Ben Sasse for Senate in Nebraska.

Correction to Saturday Alert and List of the Pro-Gun Members Who Voted to Protect the Second Amendment

Correction to Saturday Alert and List of the Pro-Gun Members Who Voted to Protect the Second Amendment

Last week, disciples of anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg staged an ambush in the House of Representatives.

Due to an error in our automated messaging system, we sent out incorrect information concerning who voted in the pro-gun or anti-gun positions.

We apologize for the error and we have contacted all Congressional offices to let them know about this issue.

If you’ve already sent a message, thank you, no further action is necessary as the problem has been fixed.  If you have yet to take action, please CLICK HERE to contact your Representative.

The vote was on a Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) amendment to H.R. 4660, the Commerce-Justice-Science funding bill.  Both Representatives hold an “F” rating with Gun Owners of America.

Their amendment would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list.

Already, more than 175,000 law-abiding veterans have lost their Second Amendment rights this way.  And, in states like New York, this money will pay to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, merely because they consult a psychiatrist and are prescribed a therapeutic drug.

Below are the U.S. House Members who voted NO on the Thompson-King amendment. A NO vote is the pro-gun position.

Bloomberg Sycophants Spring an Ambush in the U.S. House

Bloomberg Sycophants Spring an Ambush in the U.S. House
– And VA Secretary Shinseki gets dumped

“A growing number of lawmakers from both parties [have called] for the resignation of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.” — Los Angeles Times, May 29, 2014

———————————————————–

UPDATE:  VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned Friday morning.  GOA thanks those of you who contacted your legislators over the past couple of weeks in response to our earlier email alert.  In the end, over 20 Representatives and Senators called for the ouster of Shinseki — who, in addition to the recent scandals, has overseen an agency that has disarmed more than 175,000 military veterans.

GUN CONTROL VOTE IN HOUSE:  Disciples of anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg staged an ambush in the House of Representatives on Thursday.  And 76 Republicans fell right into the trap.

The vote was on a Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) amendment to the Commerce-Justice-Science funding bill.  Both Representatives hold an “F” rating with Gun Owners of America.

Their amendment would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list.

Already, more than 175,000 law-abiding veterans have lost their Second Amendment rights this way.  And, in states like New York, this money will pay to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, merely because they consult a psychiatrist and are prescribed a therapeutic drug.

The amendment was sprung so that GOA had only a few hours to send a letter to the Hill, and no time to send out a new alert to its members — although we told you earlier this week that Bloomberg and Obama minions were renewing efforts to exploit the recent California tragedy and pass gun control.  NRA took no public position at all on the legislation.

Despite the short turn-around time, GOA did manage to get a Facebook alert out to its members.

If you haven’t “liked” GOA’s Facebook page, please go here right now and do so. Don’t wait any longer, as you are missing very informative articles and critical alerts!
—————————————————————-

In the end, the Thompson-King amendment passed by a vote of 260-145.  That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the battle has just begun.  The bill now goes to the Senate, and will ultimately be shelved in favor of a massive government-wide funding bill — called a “continuing resolution” or CR.

Hence, there is still a possibility that we can get the Thompson-King amendment removed from the final CR.

That being said, the loss hurts.

Bloomberg can now spend weeks bragging that he has “crushed” the gun lobby, and this will give impetus to allow him to raise more money.

But when it comes to gun rights issues, the 76 Republicans who went wobbly will be defined almost exclusively by their vote for this anti-gun amendment.

The GOP could take a lesson from Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 “ground game” playbook.  As odious as Obama is to those who love the Constitution, he reached out to each of the major constituencies of the Democratic Party and gave them a reason to vote for him.  As a result, he won.

The 76 Republicans are hardly going to get Bloomberg’s endorsement for betraying their supporters.  And they have angered the Second Amendment community in a way that may take a long time for them to repair.

ACTION:  Write your Representative.  Thank him if he voted right and opposed the Thompson-King amendment.  If he voted wrong, let him know what you think about that.

Take Action and use the GOA Engage site, the correct letter will automatically be chosen.

ALERT: House Bloomberg bill hearing Tuesday morning

GOCRA.ORG

ALERT: House Bloomberg bill hearing Tuesday morning

Rep. Paymar photoThe House version of Michael Bloomberg’s unconstitutional gun grab bill, HF3238, will be heard Tuesday morning in Rep. Paymar’s Public Safety committee.

As GOCRA testified to last night, the bill strips accused individuals of fundamental Second Amendment and property rights without due process, and imposes, practically, a gun forfeiture on such accused individuals. We will be posting a detailed critique on our web site this weekend, and will email you an update when it is ready.

In the Senate, bill author Ron Latz successfully urged his fellow DFLers on the committee to pass the bill, promising that the bill would be fixed after it was passed out of committee. This is, in the words of GOCRA co-founder and attorney David M. Gross, “backwards, upside-down, and inside out“: bills are supposed to be voted upon based on their actual, current form, not vague promises of future amendment.

Once again, we are asking you to wear maroon (preferably a GOCRA shirt!), and show up to show your support your support for all civil rights, including due process, property, and Second Amendment rights.

The hearing starts at 10 a.m. in Room 10 of the State Office Building, next to the capitol. We recommend arriving by 7 to help guarantee a seat in the hearing room.

If you have not yet, please remember that you must notify the Commissioner of Public Safety if you intend to carry inside the Capitol complex. (Just click the link to do it!)

Village Idiots

Making it about guns: “‘Shoot first’ laws like those in Florida can inspire dangerous vigilantism and protect those who act recklessly with guns. Such laws — drafted by gun lobby extremists in Washington — encourage deadly confrontations by enabling people to shoot first and argue ‘justifiable homicide’ later. The tragic death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed child attempting to walk home from the store, will continue to drive our efforts [for more gun control].” –New York City MayorMichael Bloomberg

“Separate and apart from the [Trayvon Martin] case that has drawn the nation’s attention, it’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods. … It is our collective obligation; we must stand OUR ground to ensure … that our laws reduce violence, and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent.” –Attorney General Eric Holder

“We must not — as we have too often in the past — let this opportunity pass. … I want to assure you that the Department will continue to act in a manner that is consistent with the facts and the law. …. And we will never stop working to ensure that — in every case, in every circumstance, and in every community — justice must be done.” –Eric Holder

“We will pursue civil rights charges with the Department of Justice, we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state, and we will not rest until racial profiling in all its forms is outlawed.” –NAACP president Benjamin Jealous

Even more race bait: “Frankly, I am stunned over this … tremendous miscarriage of justice [in the Zimmerman trial]. When the jury says not guilty — he’s at least guilty of murder. An armed man, racially pursuing and profiling a young African-American boy, and kills him.” –Jesse Jackson

“F—ing Zimmerman got away with murder today wow what kind of world do we live in. All them jurors should go home tonight and kill themselves for letting a grown man get away with killing a kid.” –Atlanta Falcons player Roddy White

“It’s 2013 and an American jury just acquitted a man who admitted to stalking and killing an unarmed child.” –actor-director Richard Dreyfuss

“We are officially game, like deer. … Black parents hold your kids at home because apparently killing black children is okay. … Ni—- are official ‘sport’. Rabbit season, duck season, ni— season.” –actor Marlon Wayans

“The University of Hawaii set aside an oceanfront site in a bid to have President Obama’s library located there. However, one of two colleges in Southside Chicago may get the library. That’s because in Chicago Barack Obama got a hundred twenty percent of the vote.” –comedian Argus Hamilton

“President Obama said he wants to use Google’s model to create ‘a smarter government.’ Nah, he should try the Twitter model: no new laws over 140 characters long.” –Fred Thompson

“According to a new study, inactivity can kill you. You can die from doing nothing. Believe me. These findings scare the hell out of the Congress.” –comedian Jay Leno
