Dear Fellow Patriot,
If you’ve been reading my recent emails, advisors to President Trump pushed as their top pick for FBI Director former United States Senator, and longtime gun control advocate, Joe Lieberman.
But when your National Association for Gun Rights got involved, tens of thousands of pro-gun activists sent a clear message again that gun control advocates are not welcome in the Trump Administration.
Yesterday, White House officials reported Joe Lieberman removed himself from consideration!
This is great news.
I’m sure the fact that your National Association for Gun Rights was able to gather over 21,000 petitions in the past few weeks and run targeted ads urging President Trump not to select Joe Lieberman -- or any other gun grabber was a big reason why.
Fellow Patriot, this is no small victory in the ongoing fight to restore our right to keep and bear arms.
It’s not just because of Lieberman’s long anti-gun record -- working with former President Barack Obama to create a “commission on mass violence” to re-instate the Clinton-era “assault weapons” ban.
And it’s not just because of the damage he could have done as FBI Director -- perhaps even continuing to tactically support everything from “gun-free” zones to allowing rogue prosecutors to bankrupt gun manufacturers through frivolous lawsuits whenever someone commits an evil act with their guns.
This proves to everyone in Washington, D.C. that Second Amendment supporters aren’t going away.
We’re still active and engaged as ever, and no free passes will be given.
Your activism is the key to ensuring our freedoms are protected.
You see, Fellow Patriot, the old saying in politics is “personnel is policy.”
Sometimes, presidential appointees wield more influence over decision-making in Washington, D.C. than even the President himself.
So Lieberman’s removal from the running is fantastic news.
But we can’t let our guard down.
Capitol insiders are reporting now that acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is now Trump’s top pick.
McCabe is an anti-gun Democrat whose wife, Jill, ran against one of the strongest defenders of the Second Amendment we’ve seen in the Virginia Legislature.
McCabe’s wife took over $500,000 from Clinton allies, Democrat Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and Congresswoman Gabby Giffords to further anti-gun schemes in Virginia.
That’s why it’s so important that you click here and sign your NO ANTI-GUN FBI DIRECTOR Petition to President Trump without delay.
Together we can send a clear message to President Trump: gun grabbers should not be welcome in his administration.
Make no mistake though Fellow Patriot, it’s not just Andrew McCabe we need to worry about. The short list is also rumored to include people like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Colorado Springs, CO mayor John Suthers, and even longtime gun control advocate Rudy Giuliani.
All of them have a terrible record on your Second Amendment rights.
Chris Christie fervently opposed the rights of citizens to carry guns, and called Second Amendment supporters “dangerous,” “crazy,” and “radical” for opposing Clinton-era gun bans.
As the U.S. Attorney for Colorado, John Suthers actively supported “Project Gestapo,” which encouraged citizens to turn in their neighbors for “illegal guns,” and even headlined a news conference with radical gun grabber James Brady.
So please click here and sign your NO ANTI-GUN FBI DIRECTOR PETITION!
We will be delivering these petitions to President Trump soon, so please don’t delay!
And along with your petition, I’m hoping I can also count on a generous contribution.
My staff is pulling out all the stops to prevent an anti-gun FBI Director. This includes everything from cutting edge social media campaigns, to email, mail, and even radio and television if we have to.
All of this will be done to bring more Second Amendment supporters like you into the fight.
But doing so will take a lot of resources, resources that I frankly just don’t have right now.
So to help fund this, I hope I can count on you to make your most generous contribution of $100.
I know I’m asking a lot, but this program is absolutely vital -- an anti-gun FBI director would be disastrous to pro-gun Americans.
If $100 is too much for you at this time, I understand, but please at least consider a donation of $50 or even $20 if you can.
We must send a loud and clear message to our President, NO ANTI-GUN FBI DIRECTOR. And together we can do that.
So join the fight. Please sign your petition right away!
Thanks for your action and support, Fellow Patriot. We must count on you to keep an anti-gunner out of this important position.
I’ll continue to keep you posted on any new developments.
National Association for Gun Rights
Dear Fellow Patriot,
Just hours before he walked out the door, President Obama set a massive time bomb targeting 95% of the ammunition sold in the United States . . .
In the frenzy of Inauguration Day -- and the media outrage over President Trump keeping any campaign promise -- Obama’s final insult by Executive Order went almost unreported.
But your National Association for Gun Rights noticed!
Under this last-minute executive scheme –- Director’s Order #219 -- ALL lead ammo and fishing tackle will be BANNED on all land controlled by the U.S. Government.
That means not just national parks and other Federal properties, Fellow Patriot.
Under recent federal interpretations regarding their own jurisdiction, it could mean just about anywhere in the United States some bureaucrat thinks may have had a puddle on it, an endangered animal near it or drinking water under it!
The bad news is, unless you and I can succeed in convincing the Trump Administration to reverse this immediately this nightmare scenario could become reality . . .
That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your petition to urge President Trump to immediately rescind this action -- aptly called Obama’s Last Insult.
Now let me explain exactly why this is so critical.
Fellow Patriot, I’m sure it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the horrific impact that this could have on hunters and anglers.
But it doesn’t stop there.
As I mentioned, a whopping 95% of ammo used for hunting and recreation in the United States contain lead.
Should former President Obama’s directive become implemented, it will become illegal to shoot or even have in your possession just about anywhere in America.
Can you imagine what this would do to ammunition prices?
Can you imagine the federal government goons who would soon start harassing sportsmen and other gun owners just to “check” to see if they’re using banned ammo?
Or the grandfather taking his grandson fishing for the first time, interrupted by government goons nosing through his 50-year-old tackle box for banned sinkers?
Of course, the gun grabbers argue this is all about “environmental concerns” for lead poisoning.
But former President Obama didn’t even bother running this by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies before issuing this scheme!
In fact, this organization called it a “breach of trust” and “deeply disappointing!”
Yet, under President Obama’s directive, our federal government is mandated to implement a full-scale plan over the next five years.
The good news is, President Trump can reverse this decision with a stroke of his pen.
But it’s going to be up to you and me to create a big enough firestorm -- and fast -- to ensure that happens.
The truth is, with this new scheme in place, ammo companies are likely already looking for ways to move away from lead ammo to far more expensive substitutes.
That’s why we have to act NOW!
The great news is you and I have defeated executive actions like this in the past.
In fact, in 2015, we stood down President Obama’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) and their radical attempt to BAN “green tip” AR-15 ammo.
And thanks to action by over one hundred thousand National Association for Gun Rights supporters, we have repealed Obama’s odious Social Security Gun Ban!
But I’m afraid former President Obama thinks he’ll get the last laugh with this lead ammo ban . . .
You and I can’t let him get away with it.
So please sign this NO LEAD AMMO BAN petition, and agree to your most generous contribution at once.
As you’ll see, this petition urges President Trump to reverse this Executive Action. And I really think he will, if enough of us take action so his Administration notices what Obama did.
To make sure that happens, if you possibly can, please agree to a generous contribution.
Perhaps you can afford $100 or $50?
If you could do that much, I’d really appreciate it.
Your generosity will be used to gather a mountain of petitions to the Trump White House to overturn former President Obama’s lead ammo ban.
The more heat we can generate, the better the odds of a quick victory.
But if $100 or $50 is just too much, please agree to $20.
Or even if all you can do right now is chip in $10, it will make a world of difference.
Fellow Patriot, we can’t let President Obama’s final attack stand!
It’s time to insist this lead ammo ban is reversed immediately!
If you agree, please sign your pettion to STOP THE LEAD AMMUNITION BAN and agree to your most generous contribution of $100, $50, $20 or even just $10 TODAY!
Windsor, CO – President Trump signing House Joint Resolution 40, otherwise known as a full repeal of the “Social Security Gun Ban” on Tuesday, marks the beginning of the end of the Obama gun control era, and a big victory for the National Association for Gun Rights whose members led the opposition to the Obama rule.
“We’re very pleased President Trump made history by signing this landmark Joint Resolution to undo part of Barack Obama’s gun control legacy,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Repealing the Social Security Gun Ban is a great first step to undoing the damage done to our Second Amendment rights.”
Last July, the National Association for Gun Rights delivered 89,000 petitions, signed by its members and supporters, to the Social Security Administration during their open comment period.
On Tuesday evening, President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.
This is good news to any American who treasures individual liberty and supports the Constitution.
Gorsuch has a proven pro-gun record, and was reported as “a worthy heir to Scalia” in many major publications.
In fact, just months ago, Judge Gorsuch ruled in favor of a free speech case NAGR had before him -- testifying to his commitment to the Constitution.
But no matter what anyone tells you, it is not time for celebration just yet -- the battle to defend the Supreme Court has only just begun.
Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, and their gun-grabbing cohorts have already vowed to stall and outright defeat our President’s pick.
And within minutes of the announcement, radical protesters who were likely Soros funded were already mobbing the streets in D.C. with pre-printed signs attacking Gorsuch.
That’s why gun owners nationwide must fight back NOW.
So please click here to sign your DEFEND THE U.S. SUPREME COURT petition right away!
The tragic passing of Justice Antonin Scalia left big shoes to fill, especially considering that we were already only one vote away from the Supreme Court ruling the Second Amendment out of existence.
And if Obama had succeeded in confirming his rabid anti-gun Supreme Court pick, Merrick Garland, gun grabbers likely would have succeeded in that.
You’ve already done a lot to protect the Supreme Court, but there is still much to do.
It is not time to slow down; in the past year Second Amendment supporters have stopped Garland, stopped Hillary, and now we must stop the Democrats in the Senate and their schemes to block Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.
So please sign your DEFEND THE U.S. SUPREME COURT petition without delay!
And, along with your petition, please consider chipping in $10 or $25!
The fight for the Supreme Court will begin in just days; I must count on you now.
National Association for Gun Rights
Gun grabbers, Washington, D.C. insiders and their pals in the national press are already scheming to undermine President-elect Donald Trump and make America the same again . . .
Never mind the fact that the results of the 2014 and 2016 elections proved the American people have had enough gun control shenanigans!
Never mind the fact that with Hillary Clinton’s crushing DEFEAT at the polls -- as the most anti-gun major party presidential candidate in U.S. history -- the American people sent a LOUD-AND-CLEAR message: “HANDS OFF OUR GUN RIGHTS!”
Fellow Patriot, the Washington, D.C. elites believe that if they can shut the American people out -- and ensure the ONLY voices congressional leaders and the Trump White House hear are theirs -- it’s only a matter of time until they get the last laugh!
That’s why -- with the new Congress already sworn in and Inauguration Day rapidly approaching -- I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.
I’m kicking off an emergency Pro-Gun Agenda Battle Fund to help NAGR fund our programs during Trump’s first months in office.
So I’m hoping you’ll sign your Pro-Gun Agenda petition along with a generous contribution to our Battle Fund.
Since it’s such a critical time for our Second Amendment, I believe we will need to raise $55,000 by next week, so please consider your most generous contribution along with your petition.
This agenda clearly lays out Second Amendment supporters’ top priorities for the TRUE CHANGE we must have from our newly-elected government.
In just a few weeks, I will deliver this agenda to President-elect Trump and congressional leaders, urging them to adopt our priorities as their plan of action for the Second Amendment.
This will ensure congressional leaders and our new President know exactly what bold steps you and I are insisting they take, including:
*** Confirming a pro-Second Amendment U.S. Supreme Court Justice. This is a MUST-WIN fight. In 2008, the Supreme Court only upheld the Second Amendment as an individual right by a 5-4 majority. Another “stealth” nominee like Chief Justice John Roberts could end up interpreting the Second Amendment out of existence;
*** ENDING the United Nations Gun Ban. We MUST remove the United States as a signatory to the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty.” Every day that goes by without the new administration announcing a reverse to President Obama’s support for this global gun control scheme only emboldens international gun grabbers to try and FORCE it on the United States;
*** Stopping ALL ongoing efforts to STRIP law-abiding Americans of their Second Amendment rights. This so-called “No Fly, No Buy” gun ban effectively hands anti-gun government agencies the ability to impose a gun ban on anyone they please, for life and without any due process. Not only that, but these federal lists are famously rife with errors -- with an eight-year old Cub Scout, a two-year old child, multiple members of Congress and even an Air Force National Guard Brigadier General appearing on the list;
*** Repealing gun bans on military veterans and Social Security recipients imposed by President Obama by ensuring that NO AMERICAN can be stripped of their Second Amendment freedoms without due process of law. These sweeping bans are literally STRIPPING gun rights from veterans and seniors every day -- hundreds of thousands have already lost their rights -- and millions more are at risk. They cannot be allowed to stand. They must be stopped.
Your signature -- and the signature of hundreds of thousands of Second Amendment supporters just like you from all over the country -- will be the key to ensuring we mean business!
So please click here and sign your Pro-gun Agenda pledge right away!
You see, right now -- as the new administration “staffs up” and congressional Leaders begin setting their agendas for the next several months -- is when anti-gun insiders and slick lobbyists are most dangerous.
Even as I write you, they’re weaseling their way in and out of Congressional offices and meetings with the new administration to make staff recommendations and promising future favors for “just a little input” on the new agenda.
With a smile and an arm around the shoulder, they’re telling everyone who will listen: “People understand your promises were just campaign talk. Just take it slow until you figure out how Washington, D.C. works.”
The truth is, Washington, D.C. DOESN’T WORK! That was the entire point of the 2016 elections!
The entire purpose of our federal government is to PROTECT citizens’ liberty. But instead, it’s spent years on years doing nothing but attacking them!
And I’m afraid the only way for you and me to BREAK through this logjam is to prove to Washington, D.C. that you and I aren’t going anywhere!
Instead -- you and I, along with hundreds of thousands of Second Amendment supporters all over the country -- must insist on action!
After all, Second Amendment supporters delivered in 2016.
Now, it’s time for Congress and the White House to do the same.
If you agree, please review and then sign the Pro-Gun Agenda pledge for President-elect Trump and congressional leaders right away.
Then, if you possibly can, please agree to a generous contribution to our Battle Fund to help the National Association for Gun Rights gather as many signatures as possible for this Pro-Gun Agenda to the President and congressional leaders.
The more signatures you and I can gather, the harder it will be to ignore our demands.
Not only that, but your generosity will also help me rally supporters as key fights -- like the battle over the next U.S. Supreme Court nominee -- progress, using:
1) Mail and email to contact up to 12 million Americans from all over the country to urge them to turn up the heat on their members of Congress;
2) A massive state-of-the-art Internet and Social Media campaign to keep Second Amendment supporters up-to-date with day-to-day developments;
3) Op-eds, highly-trafficked blogs and talk-radio shows to explain to Second Amendment supporters why we must continue to fight to ensure our voices are heard in Washington, D.C.;
4) Hard-hitting radio, Internet and TV ads, if I can raise the resources, to ensure targeted members of Congress know they could pay a steep political price for betraying Second Amendment supporters.
But I’m counting on your generous financial support today to make it all possible.
You see, I’ll be delivering this Pro-Gun Agenda to President-elect Trump and congressional leaders shortly, so your action TODAY is critical.
Fellow Patriot, just imagine six months from now learning our federal government is still a signatory to the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” -- and some in the administration were discussing implementation of some “national security” provisions.
Or perhaps a newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice -- who was unproven, but EVERYONE assured us would be “A-OK!” -- just joined with Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and others on a landmark Second Amendment case.
You and I MUST make our voices heard now.
So please click here and sign your Pro-Gun Agenda pledge to President-elect Trump and congressional leaders, along with your most generous contribution of $100 to our Battle Fund.
I know that’s a lot to ask for. But as I mentioned, this is an absolutely critical time.
Of course, if $100 is just too much, please agree to $50 or at least $20 TODAY.
The American people shocked the world in 2016. Now it’s time to insist our newly-elected government make good on their pro-gun promises -- or the anti-gun insiders and lobbyists could get the last laugh!
Windsor, CO - The following comments were made by Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights, regarding the nomination of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.
“The consideration of Mitt Romney, David Petreaus, Rudy Giuliani and Joe Manchin for Secretary of State was alarming, considering their strong anti-gun history. President-elect Trump’s rejection of these finalists is a win for the Second Amendment.”
“The National Association for Gun Rights is urging Mr. Tillerson, if he is confirmed as Secretary, to give his full-throated support for withdrawing the United States from the U.N. 'Small Arms Treaty.'”
Getting the United States OUT of the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty” is a top priority for the National Association for Gun Rights.
Pushed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and signed by the Obama Administration, the U.N. Gun Ban gives international bureaucrats authority over your gun rights.
Now with the total rejection of Clinton’s agenda last month, we have a golden opportunity to turn the tables and END this global gun control scheme!
Unfortunately, President-elect Donald Trump’s top potential picks for Secretary of State ALL have a long history of pushing gun control.
Secretary of State is a key Cabinet position that will play a major role in determining whether we roll back the defunct policies of the last 8 years, or allow them to continue.
Trump’s top three candidates for the post are General David Petraeus, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Each of these candidates has proudly supported banning firearms, and worked openly with radical anti-gun groups like Brady’s Handgun Control, Inc.
When it comes to the Second Amendment, there is precious little difference between Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, Mitt Romney, and Rudy Giuliani!
We simply cannot afford another anti-gun Secretary of State.
So please click here to sign your petition urging President-elect Donald Trump NOT to nominate another anti-gun Secretary of State.
Even a cursory Google search will show alarming details about each of the nominee’s anti-gun positions and ties to gun control groups.
These are just the highlights:
Gen. Petraeus founds anti-gun group:
This past summer General David Petraeus tipped his hand on his allegiance to gun control when he teamed up with anti-gun crusader Mark Kelly.
Together they formed the gun control group, “Veterans Coalition for Common Sense,” with the agenda of pushing expanded background checks and gun registration on law-abiding gun owners.
Petraeus serves a key role on the anti-gun group’s advisory committee.
Gov. Romney signs Clinton gun ban into law:
Trump’s shortlist also includes Mitt Romney who, while governor of Massachusetts, signed a permanent version of the Clinton semi-auto ban into law.
Romney also supported the Brady Bill, and a proposed anti-gun expansion of that gun control into law in 2007.
Rudy’s gun control crusade:
Last, but not least, is former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani led the radical left’s crusade against the Second Amendment for years, working with anti-gun zealot Sarah Brady’s Handgun Control, Inc.
He backs federal gun licensing, the Clinton semi-auto ban, and he even helped invent the strategy of filing frivolous liability lawsuits against firearm manufacturers.
Not to mention his unconstitutional belief that even law abiding gun owners should be “stopped and frisked” for any reason whatsoever.
The idea that President-elect Trump is even considering these anti-gun activists for such a high position in his Cabinet is deeply troubling.
President-elect Trump is moving fast on his nominees, so we have to act quickly!
So please click here to sign your petition urging President-elect Donald Trump NOT to nominate another anti-gun Secretary of State.
It’s imperative President-elect Trump follow through on his commitment to the Second Amendment by nominating candidates with proven pro-gun records.
But with few, if any, solidly pro-gun names surfacing for any of his top Cabinet posts, time is running out.
Your signature encouraging President-elect Trump to stand firm and reject any anti-gun Secretary of State could be the difference maker.
We need a Secretary of State who will lead the charge to withdraw the U.S.’s signature from the U.N.’s so-called “Small Arms Treaty.”
We NEED the new Administration to take swift action to reverse the Obama-Clinton anti-gun legacy and block the global gun control agenda.
Petraeus, Romney, and Giuliani are virtually certain to advance the gun control banner, a slap in the face to Second Amendment supporters everywhere.
Fellow Patriot, here’s how you can help:
Click here to sign your petition urging President-elect Donald Trump NOT to nominate another anti-gun Secretary of State.
Encourage him to put forth ONLY pro-gun nominees for his Cabinet positions.
The stakes are too high.
The next Secretary of State simply must reject gun control and stand up to the despots and dictators behind the U.N. “Small Arms Treaty.”
Thank you for all you do to restore our Second Amendment freedoms!
National Association for Gun Rights
Fellow Patriots, this could be worse than I thought...
I nearly spit out my coffee when I saw that tweet from Donald Trump.
It has been confirmed that the NRA is meeting with Donald Trump and the press claims it is to discuss implementing Obama’s draconian “No Fly, No Guns” list.
In fact, the Washington Post reported that:
“Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and some vulnerable GOP lawmakers signaled Wednesday that they are open to changing the nation’s gun laws.”
It should scare every American that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or for that matter, Donald Trump could put law-abiding citizens on a secret list, denying them their Second Amendment rights.
And it would be shocking if the NRA, or any allegedly pro-gun group, supported such a scheme.
That would be an OUTRAGE, and it would be a stab in the back to every freedom-loving patriot across the country.
I hope the reports are innacurate, or that cooler heads prevail, but in the media frenzy following the Orlando terrorist shooting, anything is possible.
That's why I need you to sign your “NO GUN CONTROL, NO DEALS” petition without delay.
If Donald Trump, or worse yet the NRA, cave into Barack Obama, weak-kneed Republicans in Congress will see this as a signal that gun control is OK.
In fact, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already signaled that he’s ready to parley with the gun-grabbers -- looking to Obama’s Homeland Security appointee and gun control fanatic Jeh Johnson for advice.
With McConnell’s waffling, and the NRA currently considering compromise, we’re in serious danger.
So first, if you haven’t already, sign your “NO GUN CONTROL, NO DEALS” petition right away.
Then, consider making your most generous contribution of $100 or $50.
If that’s too much, even a contribution of $35, or $25 would make a big difference.
And if you’ve already signed, you can click here to donate.
Our rights are in serious danger. I’m counting on your support.
As former Obama advisor Rahm Emanuel put it, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.”
And they sure aren’t letting the recent murders in Orlando go to waste . . .
Before some could even be alerted that their parents, siblings, children, or friends would never come home, Obama was already alerting the American people that he was coming for their guns.
Now reports are the NRA and Trump are considering joining with Obama.
In reality, the very gun-grabbers that are trying to shame you for supporting gun rights are the ones that created the environment that allowed this attack to take place.
What the anti-gun extremists don’t want you to know is that the nightclub in Orlando was a “gun free zone.”
Nobody had any legal right to effectively defend themselves against a deranged madman looking to commit mass murder in the name of ISIS.
And none of the proposals on the table would have done a single thing to prevent this tragedy.
But that isn’t stopping the NRA from discussing support for Obama’s plan.
You see -- the so-called “No Fly, No Guns” list allows the government to arbitrarily decide if you are allowed to own a gun.
We’ve already seen massive errors, and we know many government bureaucrats already think that Second Amendment supporters are terrorists.
Something as simple as your political beliefs could get you thrown on Obama’s “No Fly, No Guns” list, sending federal thugs to your door demanding you shut up and turn in your guns.
No judge, no jury, no due process . . . Just lose your rights, and maybe your guns.
That’s why it’s time for us to stand and fight. We need to send a clear message that we will accept absolutely no gun control.
So please sign your “NO GUN CONTROL, NO DEALS” petition IMMEDIATELY.
And please consider making a generous contribution of $100, $50, $35, or $25 along with your signature.
Thanks in advance for your support.
