    Tell the Senate GOP: Do Not Betray Us

    Senate Republicans are reportedly coalescing around Lindsey Graham’s Red Flag Confiscation bill based on a prototype drafted by the Giffords Organization.

    Please add your name to our pre-written letter that will go to EVERY SINGLE Senate Republican telling them to VOTE NO on this bill. Let’s flood their inboxes so that our letters are the only thing they see.

    *** Text of pre-written email copied below for review (may be edited if desired) ***

    You were elected to uphold the United States Constitution and represent the American people in the Senate.

    If you vote for this Red Flag Confiscation bill, you will be attacking our constitutional rights to bear arms, attacking our constitutional right to due process, and turning your back on the American voters who trusted you to represent us in the Senate.

    This bill would create a federal “bribe pot” to encourage states to pass Red Flag Gun Confiscation bills. This means SWAT teams would be empowered to show up at innocent Americans’ doorsteps, demanding they fork over their guns, all because they’ve been named a suspected danger to our society.

    This is exactly what happened to an African-American gentleman living in Maryland. After a family argument, an angry relative got revenge against Gary Willis by using the state Red Flag Gun Confiscation law to send police to his door. The authorities showed up at 5:17 a.m. and shot him to death.

    These Red Flag gun grabs will undoubtedly be used as ploys to get revenge against innocent Americans and will move our country down a dark and dangerous road.

    Anyone who tells you that the Graham legislation would not compromise the due process of American citizens is deceiving you.

    If that were the case, it could not fund ANY state program currently on the books or any program being considered by any state legislature. Because not one state with red flag gun grabs currently includes due process prior to seizing a gun owners' firearms!

    Like all gun control, Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws will only end up hurting honest, innocent Americans who play by the rules and want to keep themselves and their families safe.

    If you go down this road of supporting gun control, you could face HUGE repercussions at the polls. Rush Limbaugh has already begun bashing Republicans after it was reported on Monday that the GOP was getting behind red flag laws. Limbaugh called these laws “a pipeline to gun control.”

    Gun Owners of America has also vowed to support a primary challenger to Lindsey Graham because he introduced this bill. Republicans who vote for this radical measure could be next.

    Come next election, I, and many of my fellow American citizens will remember whether you voted to uphold the United States Constitution or chose to cower before the anti-gun mob.

    What's truly scary is how many "conservatives" are coming out in favor of this. This can and will be abused to the max, and this will be the biggest erosion of our liberty since the Patriot Act, and possibly the greatest in our nation's history.

    I'm truly afraid that this is the beginning of the end for the 2nd. After this anyone can "red flag" anyone for any reason, and get their firearms taken away with no due process.. Or worse, their family murdered when the police execute a no knock warrant.

    This is bad news all around. I seriously don't know what the POTUS and Republicans are thinking with this. It's political suicide. If they do nothing, the liberals stay pissed like they already are.. No big deal. Passing this crap will only further piss of gun owners who are already on edge after the bump stock ban. Trump risks losing a large portion of his base over this, including me. He's done some great things, I admit. But if he passes a law that will destroy the 2nd, I'm out.. Sorry, you people on here can justify your death by a thousand cuts all you want.. It won't work this time... And if the NRA ends up hopping on board too, I'm canceling my membership immediately. Period. I'm sick and freaking tired of giving and giving, but never getting anything in return. I'm done..

    I'll go back to voting FOR someone instead of against, like I did before 2016. All these people on this site that keep justifying the "lesser of two evils" crap, it's like being on the sinking titanic and everyone on here saying, "well at least we didn't hit a rock, right?" as if it matters..

    Sorry.. I'm not playing that game anymore. I don't care, let a dem win next time if enough people continue to be stupid and vote for the "lesser of two evils".. At least with a Democrat you know what you're getting and can plan actions accordingly. Not a bunch of RINOs pushing backdoor legislation that will devastate our constitution.

    If he passes this crap, he will lose me as a voter.. Period. He's done a lot of good things, but unfortunately this would undo all of that for me. The ramifications of this would rip through the gun community. And if not now, when the liberals do take over again, they will expand this and make it more powerful and easier to confiscate.

    He better tread very carefully on this. People are already reeling from the bump stock ban. If he pushes this crap through, he will lose 2020.. Guaranteed. As close as it was last election he CANNOT afford to lose any portion of his voter base. Passing this would be political suicide. I have no idea what the motive is behind this, but it better not happen..

    What actions are you proposing?

    He's done a lot of good things, but?
    How does handing the next presidential election and the next Supreme Court replacements to the Liberal Democrats improve things for the 2A?

    Always funny the lengths you guys will go to just to justify more cun control from Republicans... A lot of good that Supreme Court will do when this gun control will subvert any and all judicial review, and even if it gets appealed to them, how likely are they do go against Trump? They're going to say it's well within his power since it isn't restricting gun rights.. Up until someone gets killed in a no-knock warrant because your liberal neighbor called in a red flag alert on you. Oh, then maybe you can appeal the "due process" portion to the SCOTUS... maybe..

    But hey, at least he's not Obama right?

    And I think you know exactly what actions I am talking about.

    Please don't accuse me of supporting gun control, I don't, and that should be obvious.
    This isn't about supporting gun control, it's about remaining fully engaged in the political process for as long as possible.

    Even if civil war is inevitable, and it may not be, you still need to fight on every front and exhaust every option until the bitter end.
    To put it another way, if all is lost, then you have literally nothing to lose by remaining politically engaged to protect the 2A.

    Just giving up and allowing the Liberal Democrats to win total control of our government is self defeating in the extreme.
    Conservatives gain nothing by handing our government over to totalitarian Socialists that want to completely eradicate the 2A and ourselves.

    Trump has proven that he appoints Conservative judges, and he will do so again if elected for a second term.
    A solidly Conservative Supreme Court can do great things for the 2A and our country.
    To dismiss this option without even trying it is short sighted and self defeating.
