GOA Leading the Charge Against Anti-Gun Loretta Lynch!

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

“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.

The morning after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s surprisingly easy victory against left-wing opposition, the New York Times was still sore.
