Urgent: Vote Could Happen Today

Jun 22, 2022

A gun control bill passed the U.S. House, and enough Republican senators voted yesterday to begin debate on the bill.

The vote on the bill could happen today or tomorrow. There are two problematic provisions. The most concerning is the Red Flag provision. Red Flag laws do not work, and they usually lack constitutional protections.

Gun restrictions and gun-free zones harm law-abiding citizens. A study covering 1950 to 2022 found that 96% of mass shootings occurred in gun-free zones.

Tyranny does not accept opposing views. It demands absolute control. No dissent is permitted. To fully implement tyranny, the tyrant must disarm the people.

In 1982, a Senate report reviewed the history of the Second Amendment and what was behind the thinking of the Framers. They experienced tyranny and read about its ugly assault on human dignity throughout history. The Second Amendment is not about the government having its own army. Every dictator has one. It’s about the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

While the Department of Homeland Security establishes its “Disinformation Governance Board” to silence your speech, some congressional leaders are pushing hard to disarm you. Send an urgent message today to the Senate to block these disarmament bills. — Mat

The problem with gun control or gun-free zones is that they invite violence because they advertise that no one will be able to stop a shooter.

The El Paso Walmart gunman picked gun-free locations: “Remember: it is not cowardly to pick low hanging fruit … Attack low security targets … Do not throw away your life on an unnecessarily dangerous target. If a target seems too hot [i.e., with armed people], live to fight another day.”

In addition, the Columbine shooter opposed concealed carry permits … right before his rampage.

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell directed John Cornyn (R-TX) to lead negotiations with Democrats. Enough Republicans voted yesterday to begin debate. But that does not mean they will vote to pass the bill. They must hear from you.

Fax members of Congress to stand against political manipulation and protect our constitutional rights.

Gun control laws do NOT stop violence. A man recently drove from California to D.C. to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh … and not a single one of the local gun control laws stopped his deadly plans.

Oddly enough, the attempted shooter admitted that part of his anger was because he wanted MORE gun control measures, and he acted because he thought Justice Kavanaugh might rule against them. But his own actions illustrate exactly how and why laws are absolutely worthless at stopping a shooter. The only thing that stopped him was when he saw armed guards standing outside Justice Kavanaugh’s home.

The senators need to hear from you now. Send this message today to stop attacks on our Second Amendment.

A basic first question is whether a policy change will be effective. We must also consider history:

  • China established gun control in 1935. In 1949, Mao Zedong founded the People’s Republic of China—a Marxist-Leninist single-party state. And 65 million people were slaughtered during his bloody revolution.

  • The USSR said guns could not be carried in 1917. The next year guns were rounded up. At least 20 million were killed in the Soviet Union.

  • Guns are still banned in North Korea under the communist regime, and around 2 million people have been killed by their own government.

  • When the Khmer Rouge took over in Cambodia, the brutal regime killed between 1.7 million and 2 million people. Guns were and remain unavailable to Cambodia’s citizens.

  • And the list continues ...

The Second Amendment is based on an understanding of history, and the evils of unchecked power. An armed citizenry is essential to liberty.

Tell senators to leave our constitutional freedoms ALONE.

In 2008, candidate Barack Obama spoke of “bitter” Americans who “cling to guns or religion.” Ironically, in this one statement, Obama cited—perhaps inadvertently—the two biggest threats to our freedom: the destruction of the First and Second Amendments to the Constitution.

We cannot give up the core freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights. These rights have never been more necessary than now. Send this message to Congress with an urgent fax to stop these attacks on our Second Amendment.

Our 9-0 win at the Supreme Court involving the Christian flag case is having a huge impact across the country as local governments realize they cannot continue to censor religious viewpoints.

We just won another case 3-0 involving a pro-life sidewalk counselor. And this month we are busy with our military class action case. I will update you soon. I will also soon update you on a major development in our class action lawsuit against NorthShore University HealthSystem over the COVID shot mandate.
