Protect your gun rights…now is the time

02 Oct

The next month may very well determine whether we continue to enjoy our gun rights as protected in the Constitution … or whether we will lose them for generations to come.

That’s not grandstanding or fear-mongering…I am very serious.

This next election is extremely crucial, and Gun Owners of America is working as hard as it ever has for our gun rights.

If you’re familiar with GOA, I’m sure you’ve either received an email alert from us or seen our postings on Facebook.  Maybe you’ve seen our Executive Director debating gun issues on Fox News or visited our website and blog.

GOA has been fighting the battle to protect our Second Amendment freedoms on many fronts for the past 37 years.  We are a determined, grassroots organization that does not tolerate politicians compromising the core beliefs of the Constitution.  We push for an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, and we lobby at the local, state and federal levels. 

We examine the voting records of candidates and incumbents and try to decipher — as best we can, after examining their public records and statements — what they truly believe in regard to our gun rights.  Do they really stand for the Second Amendment, or are they just “going with the flow” for the sake of political expediency? 

All this research is necessary in order to help American voters make informed choices on Election Day.  It’s hard work … it takes long hours to accomplish … and it can only come about with everyone’s help.

You see, in the end, what America needs — if it is going to maintain the liberty it has enjoyed since its founding — is for people to stand up and fight for that liberty.  I’m not just talking about the politicians who work in the halls of Congress or in the legislatures across the country … I’m saying that “We the People” need to fight for our freedoms. 

So if you are reading this — either here in America or somewhere stationed abroad — then realize that I am talking to YOU!

This election will probably decide whether the Second Amendment will be scratched out of the Constitution or not.  I assure you, I am not using hyperbole.  This will be the most important election in your lifetime.  Let me explain why.

 President Obama has openly expressed his disdain for the right to keep and bear arms.  He has been derisive to my home state of Pennsylvania saying only bitter people cling to their guns.  He has told Sarah Brady that he is working on banning firearms “under the radar.”  He has pushed for the UN Arms Trade Treaty that, if ratified, will challenge America’s sovereignty in regards to firearms. 

Finally, and most disturbingly, he has appointed two Supreme Court Justices who openly lied before Congress when they stated that they believed in the Second Amendment. In fact, in her first opportunity to rule on a case involving the Second Amendment, Justice Sonia Sotomayor voted against the individual’s right to keep and bear arms. 

The Supreme Court now stands at 5-4 in favor of the Second Amendment.  We are one liberal gun-grabbing activist Judge away from losing our right to keep and bear arms forever.  That is not hyperbole … that is not blowing things out of proportion … that is a fact.

Mitt Romney has not been a friend to the Second Amendment. I am not going to tell you otherwise.  But Barack Obama is a hostile enemy of our gun rights and a coward who hid behind closed doors and did things “under the radar” for four years because he did not have the moral character to say how he really felt to the public. 

Of course, all that changes if Obama gets reelected.  No longer will he have the voters to fear, and he will be free to implement the rest of his anti-gun agenda.  You can be sure that for the next several weeks, prior to the November 6 election, he won’t tell you what he really thinks about the Second Amendment.  He won’t tell you how anti-gun he is … but I will.

So, we have two candidates for President, neither of whom GOA shall endorse because we only support true believers in the Second Amendment.  As stated by Georgia Rep. Paul Broun, the Chairman of the Second Amendment Task Force in Congress, GOA is “the only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington, DC.”  We are not going to tell people that a politician is good on guns when he’s not.  Ain’t gonna happen.

As I said before, our research team digs deep to find out the truth of every federal politician’s record, working long hours and dissecting through the manure that gets shoveled around the halls of the Capitol.

We will endorse and support candidates for the House and Senate who will help pass serious pro-gun legislation and, in doing so, we will minimize the damage that either candidate for President can do to the Second Amendment. 

That’s why we need to have a majority of pro-gun supporters in the Senate. 

That’s why we need to stop gun-grabbing, activist judges from being confirmed.

And that’s why we need your help.

With one month to go, we need the resources in order to get the word out across the country that voters need to support true believers and not just political chameleons.

I’ll be blunt.  It’s October 2nd.  From now until October 9th — if you join GOA at gunowners.org — you will receive a membership for 25% off … and that even includes the purchase of a Lifetime Membership. 

Including today, there are exactly six Tuesdays remaining until the nation goes to the polls to determine the future of the Second Amendment in the United States.  

I know times are tough and, that with this economy, we constantly hear appeals for money.  But the time has come to stop the greatest attack upon our liberties today.  So please help us to defend the Constitution for ourselves and our posterity.

As I said, this election is important and we need your help.  We are one Supreme Court vote away from losing our rights forever.  Help us make sure that doesn’t happen.

    Yes, it’s very important that a known gun-banner not make it into office this November. It’s imperative that we don’t vote in Mitt Romney, a glad supporter of firearms bans.

      Yes, I see what he did there. If he wants to vote for a third party candidate, more power to him. But if he is really going to vote of Obama and is using this as a subterfuge against Romney thinking that gun owners need to be reminded of Romney’s time in Massachusetts then shame on him.

      But to respond to his point. I don’t think that Romney is a “glad gun banner”. I think he did what was politically necessary to survive in Massachusetts. That makes it all the MORE imperative that we get as strong a Congress (especially Senate) as we can so that President Romney will not be allowed to make the same mistakes as Governor Romney.

        To everybody who votes for any person not actually on the BALLOT!!
        No matter who you vote for other then obama or Romney
        You may not like those persons, but
        You have a choice we have had Obama expect 4 more years the same or worse.
        Replace him with Romney if not voting for anyone else-
        You have basically voted for the person who actually wins!!

    Like Gary Johnson a lot myself, but if you vote for Gary, you will get obama!! If you want to get obama out, the only way is to vote for Romney!! I don’t like it much either, but it’s the only way. If Romney gets elected I will worry about him the next four years. Right now, my main focus is to get obama out!! As far as people KNOWING what Romney will do: nobody knows what Romney will do!! How many people KNEW what obama would do??????

    I held my nose in 2008 and we still got Obama. Well, I’m not falling for it this time around. Gary Johnson FTW! Concentrate on electing pro-liberty candidates to the Senate and relegating the Democrats to a minority–that’ll ensure that no more left-wing extremists join the Supreme Court.

    The coupon codes still work as of 4-29-2013. Just signed up for life memberships to the NRA and GOA. I want to thank you for posting the life2012 code. Saves a good deal, and shipping is free if people buy things from the online store as well. Wanted shirts from both, but shipping and tax from the NRA store did me in. Thanks to GOA for keeping it affordable.
