“The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
As ardent supporters of gun rights, you and I know these words from the Second Amendment are absolutely critical to a free society.
Yet some politicians fight tooth and nail to maintain the gun control status quo in Nebraska…and it’s more than evident with the anti-gun compromises happening in Lincoln!
That’s why it’s critical we identify politicians and candidates who will take a bold, public stance in support of the Second Amendment.
And I’ve got good news and bad news for you in Legislative District 6.
The bad news is current State Senator, although officially “nonpartisan,” Democrat Incumbent Michaela Cavanaugh is anti-gun.
Cavanaugh recently voted against Legislative Bill 773, the 2022 Constitutional Carry bill.
You see, Cavanaugh voted against restoring your right to carry a handgun you already own concealed without having to ask for government permission.
Michaela Cavanaugh voted to maintain the requirement to jump through bureaucratic hoops and pay the “coat tax,” plus government mandated training costs to simply cover your handgun with a coat.
Because, let’s face facts, that’s all the Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) is since it’s completely legal for you to carry your legally owned handgun in Nebraska open without a permit.
So it’s no surprise State Senator Michaela Cavanaugh REFUSES to answer her NAGR Candidate Survey and go on record pledging any support for your gun rights.
By not returning her candidate survey Cavanaugh refuses to go on record supporting Constitutional Carry and eliminating the tax to exercise your right to bear arms.
Michaela Cavanaugh also refused to oppose firearm registration, which has been a point of debate for the last couple months with the anti-gun amendment to attach Omaha’s handgun registration scheme to the Constitutional Carry bill.
And Cavanaugh is likely to vote to gut Constitutional Carry by attaching Omaha’s handgun registration scheme to the bill.
Cavanaugh also refuses to support legislation repealing dangerous “Gun-Free” zones, better known as “Criminal-Safe” zones.
As every gun owner knows, these dangerous laws only disarm law-abiding citizens, while letting criminals know their victims will be unarmed in these locations.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Republican candidate for District 6, Elizabeth Hallgren also REFUSES to answer her Candidate Survey and go on record in support of your gun rights.
But there is some good news in Legislative District 6.
Republican candidate Christian Mirch returned his National Association for Gun Rights Candidate Survey pro-gun.
By returning his survey, Mirch is pledging his support for TRUE Constitutional Carry to restore the right for citizens to carry their legally-possessed firearms without a permit.
Christian Mirch also pledged to oppose firearm registration that requires gun owners put their private information in a government database to keep and bear arms.
Finally, Christian Mirch pledged to oppose expanding Nebraska’s draconian permit requirement to simply purchase a handgun to all rifles and shotguns.
The gun rights movement has culminated in the restoration of gun rights with Constitutional Carry sweeping the nation through 25 states now –- that’s half the states in the nation!
We must make it clear we expect candidates and elected officials to not only oppose the gun control status quo, but also to go to Lincoln and lead in the fight for the Second Amendment.
That’s why the National Association for Gun Rights is dedicated to keeping you informed about the true positions of your elected officials and candidates.
With members and supporters across Nebraska, we are giving gun owners a loud voice in defense of gun rights.
And trust me, the politicians can hear you.
There is no better time to lobby them than when they are seeking your support at election time.
So please contact Michaela Cavanaugh at (202) 246-1682 and insist she change course and start standing for your gun rights!
Also contact Elizabeth Hallgren at (402) 997-0247 to insist she return her Candidate Survey and pledge her support for gun rights.
Then contact Christian Mirch at (402) 415-3647 and thank him for taking a stand for the Second Amendment. Urge him to continue.
Reaching enough people to pressure politicians to support the Second Amendment is an expensive task, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth it.
I understand for some that may still be too much to ask, but even $30 would go a long way in helping us in the fight for your Second Amendment rights.
Whatever you can afford, know that NAGR is a good steward of your contribution and that I am grateful for your commitment to preserving our liberties for future generations.
With our rights at stake, now is the time to take action!
