Whenever there is a gun control push, anti-gun Democrats demand that the GOP “meet them half-way” and the spineless Republicans always end up caving.
But if you meet someone half-way even just four times, they end up getting just shy of 94% of what they want…
In 1934, Democrats demanded a ban on fully-automatic and semi-automatic weapons. Republicans “met them half-way” and added a tax on machine guns as long as semi-automatic guns were left untouched.
In 1986, after Ronald Reagan was shot, there was another push to ban semi-automatic guns. Republicans responded by meeting the Democrats “half-way” again and banning newly-manufactured (post-1986) machine guns.
In 1994, Democrats again demanded a full ban on semi-automatics. Republicans agreed to “meet them half-way” and ban some semi-automatic firearms, as long as the ban expired after ten years.
Now here we are in 2019 and Democrats are back to finish the job. They are demanding that Republicans vote for the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 (S.66 / H.R.1296). This bill would ban tens of millions of semi-automatic handguns as well as any semi-automatic rifle or shotgun that accepts a detachable magazine and has a “grip, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip.” In other words, if you can even conceivably hold it in your hand, it would be permanently banned.
Once again, the spineless GOP is asking to negotiate and find some kind of “middle ground” on this.
The Left wants Republicans to meet them half-way for a fourth time. The math checks out. This fourth “compromise” would simply give Democrats exactly what they demanded 85 years ago!
This week, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) became the first House Republican to formally attach his name to the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. But he is not alone. Reps. Fred Upton (R-MI), Brian Mast (R-FL), Mike Turner (R-OH) have also publicly come out in support of a new ban. Even Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admits that he now supports at least some of the provisions in the Feinstein gun ban bill…
Why are Republicans dropping like flies? The Left’s propaganda is working. A new Fox News poll shows that two-thirds of Americans (including a majority of Republicans) now support Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban. By our count, there are as many as two-dozen other Republicans who are considering flipping in order to save their seats.
These Republican cowards care more about preserving their power than preserving your rights…
And now, the first hearing on Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban has been scheduled. House Democrats are holding a hearing and mark-up session after Labor Day.
In the Senate, Lindsey Graham is calling a gun control hearing to discuss a number of bills, including his new Red Flag confiscation proposal. Dianne Feinstein has announced that she will force a vote on her Assault Weapons Ban as well. If she can get even a single Republican to flip, then the gun ban bill will move out of committee and onto the Senate floor.
This is happening whether you like it or not.
The only choice you have left to make is whether you are going to allow the Republicans to surrender or whether you will fight back and stop it!
Democrats tried to convince the American people that semi-automatic weapons were the same as machine guns back going all the way back to 1934. It took them 85 years, but their propaganda is working. They want you to think that this bill just targets “weapons of war,” but that is a lie. There is not a country on earth that fields a standard-issue semi-automatic rifle. Not. One.
But this Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 would ban the most popular self-defense, home defense, competition, target shooting, hunting firearms in America today.
I went through the bill when it was first released and was shocked at just how radical it is. The legislation would ban the handgun I carry every day and keep in my nightstand at night simply because it has a threaded barrel. The pistol I keep locked in a safe in my truck would be banned because it has an arm-brace attached to it. The rifles I use for competitions and target shooting would be banned. Even some of my collectible 50+ year old C&R guns would be on the chopping block.
None of the firearms listed in this bill are “weapons of war.” But they are the most commonly owned firearms in the country.
The GOP has spent the last century “compromising” with the left. And yet, here we are, right back where we started. But this time, Republicans are suddenly eager to sign away our constitutional rights.
We must stop this!
The GOP is flipping because they care more about their own careers than your rights. They think that voting for Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban will save their seats. Republicans believe they will gain more votes than they will lose if they support the biggest gun ban in American history.
It is up to you to prove them wrong!
The only language these people understand is fear. They are terrified of losing their seats. Not just Republicans, but Democrats too. Dozens of first-term Democrats have to run for re-election next year in districts that Trump won. They are terrified as well.
That is why you MUST fight back before there is nothing left to fight for!
Don’t let the Republicans push through this radical gun ban bill! Send your instant FaxBlast to Congress right now and FORCE them to kill S.66 and H.R.1296 before it is too late!
We can still win,
