A Good Day for the 2nd Amendment!

A Good Day for the 2nd Amendment!

And of course my local House Rep David Bly voted Nay on all of them!!

Bills enhancing the Second Amendment include:

  • Emergency Powers Act (HF 722) – Protects private property rights by prohibiting government officials from confiscating firearms during a declared state of emergency. The bill hearkens back to Hurricane Katrina, when government officials went door to door and confiscated legal firearms, resulting chaos, roving gangs, and extremely unsafe conditions for citizens.
  • Freedom to Carry at the Capitol Act (HF 372) – Updates the requirement to notify the State Capitol’s Sergeant’s Office when carrying a firearm. Because of the ability to access the database of all who have a conceal and carry permit, this bill would allow that database to be considered proper notification.
  • Lifting the Ban on Suppressors Act (HF 1434) – Would bring Minnesota into the American mainstream regarding gun laws by lifting the ban on suppressors for firearms. Additionally, the bill would help to eliminate ear damage by lowering the volume from instantly causing injury, to very loud.
  • Federal Gun Control Act (HF 830) – Expands long gun purchases so that people have the freedom to buy long guns from any state where lawful, instead of just the states surrounding Minnesota.

GOA Leading the Charge Against Anti-Gun Loretta Lynch!

GOA Leading the Charge Against Anti-Gun Loretta Lynch!

Gun Rights on the Chopping-Block as Early as Next Week


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

 

“If Lynch is confirmed, she is the Supreme Court’s fifth-vote-in-waiting.” — GOA’s Michael Hammond, TownHall, March 24, 2015

ACTIONUrge your Senators, especially if they are Republicans, to OPPOSE the Loretta Lynch nomination at every step.  And circulate this alert to your pro-gun family and friends as well.

GOA leads opposition groups against Lynch

Gun Owners of America spearheaded a coalition of almost 30 groups this week and sent a letter to U.S. Senators opposing the confirmation of Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General of the United States.

While GOA has been busy coalescing grassroots opposition against the anti-gun nominee, the battle is far from over. 

The vote on her nomination could occur as early as next week.  And right now, the Republican Senate holds “all the cards” in the fight to stop her nomination.  If they hold together, her nomination will be defeated.

And, well it should be.  Lynch has said under oath that she effectively intends to spit on the Constitution — and continue to implement Obama’s unconstitutional, unlawful and anti-gun executive actions.

Next to Obama himself, Loretta Lynch will be the most important “Lynch-pin” in the administration’s efforts to permanently obliterate the Constitution.  Without the active support of the Attorney General — who, traditionally, has been the servant of the law, and not the lawless president — Obama’s fraud scheme collapses.

Will Senate Republicans stick together and sink the Lynch nomination?

The question now remains:  Will Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell throw away his last shred of leverage against a historical lawlessness which Republicans universally whine about?

Senator McConnell can ensure that Lynch clear a 60-vote hurdle (overcoming a filibuster) rather than just passing with a mere 51-vote majority.

While Lynch doesn’t have 60 votes in the Senate, she probably has 51 votes because there are some Republicans who support her — like Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT).

Some of these Republicans argue that Lynch is somehow “qualified” by a standard that ignores her pledge to violate the Constitution.

But make no mistake about it:  When you lay your hand on the Bible, you don’t swear to get more education — or more experience — or a higher IQ.  You swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.  And, absent that, no candidate can be viewed as “qualified” to hold office.

Other Senators who support Lynch say she shouldn’t be punished for implementing Obama’s illegalities.  They ignore the fact that in recent history, an Attorney General has resigned, rather than implement a president’s unlawful order.  No Attorney General who plans to use the “just following orders” excuse should be elevated to that office.

Still others say that Lynch’s confirmation is necessary to get rid of Holder.  But Lynch represents a much greater danger than Holder — especially, if her confirmation puts her in line as the potential fifth anti-gun vote on the Supreme Court.

So let Eric Holder continue to fester in his cavernous offices on the fifth floor of Justice — a specimen of the political “undead” who haunts the living after having failed in his effort to orchestrate his own apotheosis.  Lynch is the looming danger threatening to destroy our Constitution; Holder is just a nightmare from the past.

ACTIONUrge your Senators, especially if they are Republicans, to OPPOSE the Loretta Lynch nomination at every step.  And circulate this alert to your pro-gun family and friends as well
