April 10, 2019–
Democrats snuck gun control legislation into a reauthorization of the ‘Violence Against Women Act’ as a ruthless way to get spineless Republicans to vote for it. Their games worked.
33 Republicans were too scared of being slandered as “enablers of violence against women” that they chose to vote for gun control that takes firearms OUT OF THE HANDS of vulnerable women. These cowards chose to put false hysteria above a moral duty to defend our God-given rights.
Now this bill — H.R. 1585 — will go to the Senate. We can’t take ANY risks of spineless Republican Senators voting for it.
Please send an URGENT pre-written letter to both of your Senators telling them to grow a spine and vote against this deceptive, anti-2A bill that actually PREVENTS women from protecting themselves from violence.
In fact, the true enablers of violence against women are the ones who voted to stop women from being able to arm themselves.
As we’ve seen time and time again, the only thing that can stop a bad man with a gun is a good man — or woman — with a gun.
But of course, our politicians live in a world dominated by a sensationalist media that puts propaganda above the truth.
They only care about who makes the loudest noise and who gets the angriest. So, it’s time for them to see how angry the American people will be if they sacrifice our God-given rights in order to hide from slanderous attacks by the media.
Please send an URGENT pre-written letter to both of your Senators telling them to grow a spine and vote against this deceptive bill that actually prevents women from protecting themselves from violence.
EDITOR’S NOTE: This bill is another type of “Red Flag” legislation which would remove 2nd Amendment rights for misdemeanor offences and also redefines “intimate partner” to “dating” status. In other words, your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend could get your gun rights removed for good just out of spite. Please click on the above GOA link to contact your representatives and let them know that you are against this anti-2nd Amendment bill. IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE! Just to illustrate that having Republicans in office, even with a majority (which Republicans don’t have by a WIDE margin), does not guarantee ANY 2nd Amendment protection, the following is a list of Republicans who voted for gun control and those who didn’t bother to vote for whatever reason (voting stats compiled from https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/116-2019/h156):
