“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 40.
The bad news is, although officially “non-partisan,” Republican candidates Barry DeKay and Robert Johnston REFUSE to answer their NAGR Candidate Survey and go on record pledging any support for your gun rights.
By refusing to return their Candidate Survey, DeKay and Johnston refuse to go on record supporting Constitutional Carry and eliminating the tax to exercise your right to bear arms.
DeKay and Johnston also refuse 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.
Barry DeKay and Robert Johnston refuse to go on record in support of 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.
But there is some good news in Legislative District 40.
Republican candidates Keith Kube and Mark Patefield both returned their National Association for Gun Rights Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun.
By returning their survey, Kube and Patefield are pledging their support for Constitutional Carry to restore the right for citizens to carry their legally-possessed firearms without a permit.
Keith Kube and Mark Patefield also pledged to oppose firearm registration that requires gun owners put their private information in a government database to keep and bear arms.
Finally, Kube and Patefield 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 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 to be a leader 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 Barry DeKay at (402) 394-5988 and Robert Johnston at (402) 750-1637 and insist they return their Candidate Survey and pledge to stand for your gun rights!
Then contact Keith Kube at (402) 388-4511 Mark Patefield at (402) 518-0182 and thank them for taking a stand for the Second Amendment. Urge them 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!
