GOA: We also deserved a vote, Mr. Obama, but we didn’t get it from Harry Reid!

We also deserved a vote, Mr. Obama,
but we didn’t get it from Harry Reid!

Stockman, Broun answer the call to
KILL ALL GUN CONTROL in the House

Note to Barack Obama: Spare us the snide sarcasm and the dripping contempt. Obama’s condescending state of the union speech shows, once again, why gun owners don’t trust him.

“They deserve a vote,” hollered Obama, pointing to drooling anti-gun activists in the galleries.

Well, so did we.

Veterans deserved a vote on whether they would receive due process from a court of law before having their constitutional gun rights taken away. But, when Senator Chuck Schumer threatened to filibuster the DoD authorization bill in order to block that amendment, it didn’t happen.

Gun owners deserved a vote on Sen. John Thune‘s reciprocity legislation—allowing concealed carry holders to carry their firearms from one state into another.  But Democratic Leader Harry Reid made sure each controversial bill coming before the Senate was filled with the maximum number of allowable amendments, so Thune’s amendment couldn’t be offered.

Gun owners deserved a vote on appropriations language to block 16,000 IRS agents from imprisoning those who refused to comply with the anti-gun ObamaCare law.  But Reid carefully manipulated the Senate rules to insure the ObamaCare-related votes were kept to a minimum.From responsible budgeting to gun rights, Reid’s office became the graveyard for votes on issues of interest to conservatives.

Reps. Stockman & Broun circulate letter to KILL ALL GUN CONTROL
So what can gun owners do?  We can create a groundswell of support for what Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) is doing in the House.
Rep. Stockman has just told GOA that he and Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) will be circulating a letter asking the House leadership to refuse to bring up anti-gun legislation that is NOT supported by a majority of the Republican members of the House of Representatives.
Stockman’s effort could potentially kill ALL GUN CONTROL in the House.
We know, we know.  We believe that gun control should die if only one constitutionalist-representative opposes it — or even if none do.  But, as a practical matter, if 117 congressmen sign a letter demanding that Boehner not bring up a gun control bill opposed by those 117 congressmen, gun control will die.  Without that letter, Democrats will join with anti-gun Republicans, and gun control will pass.

Gun Stuff..King Buck Ofama..Transparency..Dishonesty…Sheriff in Wisconsin Says….

His Royal Majesty … J. D. Longstreet

Richard M. Nixon was a shrinking violet compared to His Royal Majesty Barack Hussein Obama.  Talk about an Imperial presidency — an imperial President?  One need look no farther than the current occupant of the Oval Office.

America is about to see “Obama unleashed.”

Everything we conservative commentators warned America would happen in an Obama second term is about to transpire.  Four years from this month, America will be difficult to recognize.  There is even the possibility that America will not exist four years hence.   We hear reports fairly often that a few states are actively investigating leaving the union.

Look up Imperial Presidency in a dictionary and you will probably find Mr. Obama’s photo embedded within the definition.

A Crisis of Transparency

When the Secretary of State can appear before the United States Senate and say with a straight face that it’s immaterial whether the American people were given a candid description of how their countrymen came to be murdered, we’ve reached the point where shamelessness morphs into dereliction of duty.

Ramirez: Obama’s Use of Children in Gun-Control Debate Is Dishonest

To understand why President Obama surrounded himself with a human shield of children last week as he ordered a tightening of our nation’s gun controls, you have to remember this is an administration that never lets a “crisis” go to waste. Nor does it resist the use of a superficial prop to divert attention from serious deliberation.

It also has a history of claiming urgency to pass solutions based on misinformation without careful reflection.

Congressman: “Obama Only Upholds The Soviet Constitution”

Wis. sheriff urges citizens to get gun training

A Wisconsin sheriff says he released an ad calling on residents to defend themselves because the old model of having a citizen call 911 and wait for help isn’t always the best option.

In the ad, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. tells residents that when it comes to personal safety: “I need you in the game.” He urges citizens to learn to use firearms so they can “fight back” until authorities arrive.

The Resistance Begins: New York Gun Owners Refuse to Register; “Largest Act of Civil Disobedience in State History”

Preparations are already being made for mass resistance.

“I’ve heard from hundreds of people that they’re prepared to defy the law, and that number will be magnified by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, when the registration deadline comes,’’ said President Brian Olesen with American Shooters Supply, among the biggest gun dealers in the state, in an interview with the New York Post.

Bottom line: don’t mess with The People of the Gun.

Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone, for now, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event. The show was scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, PA.

Rasmussen Poll: Americans Want Better Gun Law Enforcement, Not New Gun Laws

According to a Jan. 16-17 Rasmussen poll, 57 percent of Americans think “stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws” is more important than creating new gun laws and only 32 percent of those polled think creation of new gun control laws is more important than stricter enforcement.

Gun Owners Sweep Three Key Races!
Congress will not be the same next year
In the future, when people think back to the 2012 elections, there will be a few watershed moments that will stand out.
Tuesday, July 31, will be one of those significant dates and moments.
Gun Owners of America jumped behind three important candidates early on during this election cycle.  And GOA is happy to report that all three candidates won yesterday in their respective run-offs or primaries:  Ted Cruz for Texas Senate, Steve Stockman for House District 36 in Texas, and Rep. Paul Broun in Georgia.
Congress will not be the same next year, as a result.
Ted Cruz is a 100% gun rights supporter with a proven track record of leadership.  As the former Texas Solicitor General, Cruz pulled together a coalition of thirty-one states to support the Heller case in arguing that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms.
Steve Stockman, as a Congressman in the mid-1990s, drafted legislation to repeal gun control laws from the books.  Rep. Stockman also opposed every single attempt to restrict your gun rights, earning a perfect A+ rating from GOA and every national gun group in the country.  Like Cruz, he will be a powerful advocate for 2nd Amendment rights.
And then there is Rep. Paul Broun in Georgia.  For the past several years, he as been THE pro-gun leader in the House of Representatives.  As the head of the Second Amendment Task Force in Congress, Broun has used his platform to advance pro-gun legislation and rally opposition against gun control.
Cruz, Stockman and Broun are all the heavy favorites to win in November.
GOA needs your help
GOA continues to go state by state to get rid of the people who threaten gun rights and put fresh faces into the Congress.
But to do that, we are going to need your help.  We desperately need to get the gun records of candidates — challengers and incumbents — into the hands of hundreds of thousands of voters, and then to mobilize them this Fall.
This nation needs effective leadership in the Congress — statesmen, not politicians, who will be willing to buck even their own leadership in order to support the Constitution.
There are, literally, hundreds of races at the federal and state levels where GOA will be active.  But in order to be successful in exposing anti-gun candidates at all levels — we are going to need your help.
We need your assistance in educating and mobilizing gun rights voters all around the country.  Please click here to make your contribution to Gun Owners today!  Thank you in advance for your help.
