Gun Control can be Passed Only if Republicans Sell Out

Tell them gun owners oppose "universal" background checks

Your activism is making a difference, but we need to keep the pressure on!

As so, as we approach “gun control Armageddon” next week, we are faced, not surprisingly, with “sell-outs and rumors of sell-outs.”

But we can conclude that all gun control will die UNLESS Republicans flinch. And this is why, now that anti-gun Senator Chuck Schumer is on the verge of a humiliating defeat, he’s scrambling for some feckless Republican who will help him turn GOP victory into GOP defeat.

Anti-gun columnist Ruth Marcus spoke for Schumer last Wednesday morning when she suggested that, as a desperation measure, anti-gunners might have to drop recordkeeping from the universal registry bill.

But even if ALL recordkeeping were dropped, which is doubtful, background checks would mean that:

* Americans would still have to get the government’s permission to own a firearm from whatever source.

* Americans in rural areas without access to the Internet could be barred from gun ownership.

* The Brady Check system would break down on weekends even more often than it currently does.

* Eight percent of all applicants would still be illegally denied the right to purchase firearms through “false negatives.”

* Schumer would still claim that he “broke the back of the gun lobby.”

* The universal registry bill would still be nothing but a vehicle for consideration of other gun control now - and a platform for gun control demands in the future.

The solution to all of this is easy, and it’s for Senators to support the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster! Tell them not to let Congress sidle up to the gun control buffet and to defeat the motion to proceed to gun control.

ACTION: Contact your Senators. Demand they support the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster and oppose the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle.

The system will automatically select a pre-written editable response, depending upon whether your Senator is a Republican or Democrat.

Text of bill...
Full Text of S. 374: Fix Gun Checks Act of 2013 - GovTrack.us

An almost identical bill was introduced By Senator Schumer, NY in 2011 and fell dead(As with Senator Feinstein he has been waiting for the "right" moment to re-introduce the bill which shows they do not really care to attempt to deal with the problem rather they just come forth with already failed attempts)
S.436: Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011
For those that want to view a side by side comparison of S.374(2013) and S.436(2011)
At the above link on the right hand side of page click on"
Compare this bill to another bill:
S. 436 (112th): Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011

Time to contact your respective Senators to vote no on S.374 Fix Gun Checks Act of 2013 and any so called "gun control" amendments that might be proposed.... Nothing being proposed is new and "for the children" as they want us to believe. Most of what is proposed is old proposals that failed in the past and they are using innocent children to fulfill their agenda.......

We need to keep up the pressure...... The other side is not stopping in their attempt to continue to infringe on our rights................

Honestly ive hammered mine and gotten enough response mails and letters that I now use them to start my wood stove fire.

Kys congress folks are not stupid. They have seen legislation passed that expanded firearms freedom in the state and to ban enforcement of any new federal gun laws pass the state legislature with I think only 2 no votes on any of the bills that passed.

They know supporting any gun control at the federal level is a political suicide from both parties in KY. I still email but I feel by now like im whipping horses to faster that cant run any faster if they try:blink:

I have been writing my elected officials on average of once a week and I will continue doing so, changing the details to fit the occasion.

If all we have is writing our "so called" reps; then so be it.

I fear we have already lost far more than we have gained.
