GOA: STOP DIRTY HARRY FROM RAMMING GUN CONTROL DOWN OUR THROATS - WE HAVE THE GUARANTEE OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS WHICH MAY NOT BE INFRINGED

Stop Dirty Harry from Ramming Gun Control Down our Throats
The Washington Post headline pretty much says it all: “Obama backs [Harry] Reid’s filibuster reform effort.”
Why, for instance, would Barack Obama support Senate
Majority Leader Harry Reid’s efforts to change the Senate rules, by brute force, so that it would be easier?
To implement the UN Arms Trade Treaty to
register, ban, and microstamp firearms?
To reinstate the semi-auto ban?
to allow Obama to turn anyone into a “prohibited person” and take away
their guns, simply by putting them on a secret “watch list”?
ask such questions is to answer them. The political Left would love to
disarm us all and take away our guns. To wit, the nation had to endure
Bob Costas’ rant over the weekend when he essentially suggested that
otherwise law-abiding people shouldn’t have guns.
in order to push a progressive agenda through the Senate, Reid is first
have to use his deceptive “cheat scheme” in order to change the Senate
rules to make it easier to pass the Left’s anti-gun initiatives.
eliminating the filibuster (on the motion to take up legislation), Reid
intends to eliminate our most effective way to kill a bad anti-gun bill
-- that is, by weakening or eliminating the time-honored filibuster
that makes the Senate so different from the House.
even more important, if Reid uses the “nuclear option,” as he’s
threatening to do, the Senate no longer has any binding rules. The
majority can pass any gun legislation it wants, at any time, by brute
force, with 51 votes.
So, did your Senator run for
re-election by telling
you he or she supported the Second Amendment? Well, this is their
chance to prove it -- or to show you that they’re nothing but bald-faced
will be no gun vote during the 113th Congress that will be more important than the rules votes.
that is why it’s imperative that ALL GUN GROUPS are fighting this
attempt to nuke the filibuster rules. Please contact any gun
organization that you belong to and ask them if they are actively
lobbying against Dirty Harry’s efforts to weaken the filibuster … and
against any attempt by him to ram gun control down the throats of the
