    GOA asking for another run of emails to US House to keep pressure on GOP

    House Democrats are Pushing Gun Confiscation Hard, Will GOP Compromise?

    ...as we’ve mentioned to you in recent weeks: We know the House Democrats can pass virtually any gun control measure they want.

    The real challenge is to make sure that House Republicans don’t join them. Because if they do, then that will cause Senate Republicans to defect in large numbers.

    And if only 13 GOP Senators turn to the “dark side,” gun control will pass both chambers of Congress.

    This is why we need to keep hammering House Republicans and urge them to hold firm.

    So here are the three gun control measures that we will be battling.

    1) Magazine bans (H.R. 1186). This bill would ban all magazines with a capacity of over 10 rounds. If this bill were to pass into law, gun owners across the country would have to pray that they were never forced to defend themselves and their families against multiple attackers — as evidenced in Florida, Texas or Missouri.

    2) “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Orders (H.R. 1236/H.R. 3076). We’ve talked a lot about this legislation already. This bill would allow an angry relative or former boyfriend/girlfriend to petition a court to strip you of your gun rights, with nothing but a list of unsubstantiated allegations.

    This is exactly what happened to Gary Willis of Ferndale, Maryland, and he was shot by police during the execution of the gun confiscation order.

    3) Pervert Protection Act (H.R. 2708). Finally, this so-called “hate crime” bill would impose a lifetime gun ban on gun owners for non-violent actions — primarily because they held views Democrats don’t like. As stated by GOA’s Legislative Counsel:

    All of these bills would be a nightmare for gun owners if they’re enacted into law. So please take action today.

    TAKE ACTION: Tell House Republicans to Oppose ALL Gun Control

    Urge GOP Republicans to Oppose Gun Confiscation

    Text of email copied below for reference.

    Subject: Support for gun control could cause major retaliation at the polls

    Dear [official],

    Republicans could be making a HUGE mistake, similar to the one that cost George H.W. Bush his election.

    Remember his infamous “Read My Lips” blunder -- when he spit in the faces of his supporters and broke his promise not to raise taxes.

    Equally potent was Bush’s betrayal on gun rights. As Gun Owners of America has demonstrated, Bush’s support for gun control cost him eleven states in 1992 -- all states where gun rights had played a significant role and which he had won in 1988.

    Bush had a one-term failed presidency -- and Trump and many Senate Republicans could suffer the same fate if they break their 2nd Amendment promises to the American people.

    This is precisely what happened to President Bush in 1992, and it’s the same fate that Senator Kelly Ayotte suffered.

    Ayotte earned a “D” rating from a state gun rights group after she voted for cloture on the Feinstein semi-auto ban. Many New Hampshire gun owners thus boycotted Ayotte in the 2016 election, and she lost by 1,017 votes!

    GOA’s Senior Vice President Erich Pratt went on Fox News and used Ayotte’s blunder as an example of what can happen to Republicans who violate their oath and support gun control.

    Then, Rush Limbaugh replayed GOA’s appearance on his national show and reiterated that it is a “possibility” that Republicans lose their majority after supporting gun control.

    Do not betray the trust of gun owners. Please oppose:

    1) Magazine bans that will endanger law-abiding gun owners facing multiple attackers (H.R. 1186);

    2) “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation Orders (H.R. 1236/H.R. 3076) that will throw out Due Process; and,

    3) Hate crimes gun ban (H.R. 2708) which will impose a lifetime gun ban on gun owners for non-violent actions -- primarily because they held views Democrats don’t like.

    Instead, support concealed carry reciprocity (H.R. 38) and repeal gun-free school zones (H.R. 3200).

    Sincerely,

    [your name]
