Want to know what surrender looks like? The Democrats need 11 GOP Senators and 25 Congressmen to join their new gun confiscation push… and they claim they have the numbers!
The Left wants the Federal government to be in the gun confiscation business.
Right now, a handful of states are experiencing with "red flag" laws. These laws allow for people to turn in their neighbors, friends, and family to the police so they can be disarmed. Gun owners then need to petition a court to have their 2nd Amendment rights restored.
But no one has ever tried to make this a Federal law… until now.
Michigan Congressmen Debbie Dingell (D) and Fred Upton (R) are teaming up to introduce a Federal red flag bill. This would give the Federal government the authority to confiscate firearms based on nothing but hearsay.
Already, there are two dozen Republican Congressmen lining up to vote for this monstrosity. The Senate is reportedly much closer, but the Left thinks they'll be able to push this bill through.
Do Not Let This Happen!
After the Parkland, Florida school shooting, Republicans rushed to separate themselves from their 2nd Amendment promises.
Michigan Congressman Mike Bishop had an A/A+ rating from the NRA. In April, he quietly removed the 2nd Amendment portion of his website. He doesn't want anyone to know where he stands on gun rights. If he doesn't make any promises, then he can't be accused of breaking them…
Rep. Francis Rooney became the first Republican Congressman to declare a need for Americans to lose some of their gun rights. Think about that… someone shoots up a school and his reaction is that YOU need to lose some of your gun rights…
Then, Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) penned an Op-Ed in the New York Times declaring he had changed his mind and now supports a semi-automatic gun ban. Mast ran for Congress as a Conservative and had a B rating from the NRA. He literally ran on a campaign promise to "protect our 2nd Amendment from all attempts to erode it." All lies.
The Left is picking off "conservatives" like flies. Six Republicans in the House — Chris Smith (R-NJ), Peter King (R-NY), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Fred Upton (R-MI), Francis Rooney (R-FL), and Brian Mast (R-FL) — have already come out in support of a new assault weapon ban. A dozen GOPers have also signed on to the Left's universal background check plan.
They want this confiscation bill to be the "compromise."
If you think the GOP will block this bill on its own, you haven't been paying attention. They are caving on every issue, assuming that if they become Democrats, they'll be able to win re-election this fall.
They already pushed through a bill to expand the background check system and gun owners got nothing in return.
There is no coming back from this. You CANNOT allow the Federal government to expand its gun confiscation powers!
I am calling on all Constitutional Conservatives to please rise up and resist this tyranny before it's too late!
