“The entire gun control battle here in D.C. is almost certainly going to coalesce around ‘Red Flag’ laws. Since it’s being sponsored by Rubio, moderates in both parties think they can vote for it without getting in too much trouble.”
That’s what one highly placed source on Capitol Hill told me last night as the fight for gun control is taking a bipartisan turn that reeks of the D.C. swamp!
I hope my source is wrong, but deep down, I know he’s right.
With David Chipman’s nomination up in flames, Joe Biden is looking for a compromise that ‘all sides can agree to’ so he can get something passed and please his gun control base. And a ‘Red Flag’ bill, filed by a Republican, is exactly what Biden wants!
As you probably know, Chuck Schumer needs 60 votes to pass a cloture motion, the procedural step required to end debate on a bill and hold the actual vote. With 50 Democrats in the Senate, that’s a tall order, even with some Republican betrayals.
So while the radical left would much prefer to see immediate action on Dianne Feinstein’s ban on the AR-15 and a national database of every gun owner in America (H.R. 8), they just don’t have the votes right now.
The Republicans in the Senate COULD just stand tall and refuse to advance ANY PART of Biden’s war on guns…but as gun owners have seen time and again…that’s not what usually happens.
Instead, the backstabbing moderates in the Republican conference like Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, and Lindsay Graham are doing everything they can to convince the Republicans to ‘offer up a common-sense compromise, so we do something on guns.’
And that’s why Florida Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott are the lead sponsors on S. 292, a massive ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ spending bill that bribes state legislatures into enacting this law at the state level, with taxpayer dollars!
Sign your OFFICIAL PETITION against S. 292 today, so Senators Klobuchar and Smith know that if they back this garbage, their conference will be plunged into the minority next year for sure.
As a reminder, if 10 Republicans lock arms with the leftists in the Senate and vote for S. 292, gun owners will see:
>>> Liberal judges ordering the seizure of our firearms, before we’ve been arrested or convicted of a crime and based solely on the word of an embittered personal enemy (think ex-spouse) that you haven’t seen in years!
>>> The destruction of our due process rights, by allowing your guns to be seized through secret, ex-parte, court proceedings that you would know nothing about, much less be allowed to attend!
>>> A lifetime gun ban in many cases, as the laws often allow the issuing judge or requesting party to seek a renewal every year, which would be granted unless you can prove that you’re ‘safe.’
You see, ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ are the radical left’s dream come true because they allow the government to seize every firearm you own — not just your AR-15’s — and without the ‘hassle’ of having to convict you of a crime in a court of law!
It would be a mistake to underestimate the severity of this threat.
While the passage of ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ would be a massive loss for gun owners like you and me, it’s only a stepping stone for the radical left who wants to use the passage of this bill to build momentum for their ultimate goal of disarming every gun owner in America!
THE VERY MINUTE they pass ‘Red Flags,’ they would move right on to the rest of their agenda.
So these freedom-hating zealots (like Senator Chris Murphy, D-CT) are going ‘all in,’ working overtime to pressure moderate Republicans into agreeing with them.
And given how much Republican support this bill already has — and how much betrayal gun owners have experienced from Republicans at the state and federal level over the last two years — it’s vital that Senators Klobuchar and Smith hear from you now!
So please sign your petition against S. 292, and then make a donation to help Minnesota Gun Rights get the word out about this bill to every gun owner in Minnesota.
Whether you can afford $500, $50, or just $5, please make a donation today so that we can FIGHT LIKE HELL against this attack on our right to defend ourselves!
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. After getting humiliated with the defeat of David Chipman, Joe Biden is looking for any victory he can get on gun control, to please the gun control machine that put him into office.
And a bi-partisan ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ bill filed by a backstabbing Republican moderate, is very likely Biden easiest path to getting the 60 votes he needs to pass legislation in Washington, D.C.
Sign your OFFICIAL PETITION against S. 292 immediately, so Senators Klobuchar and Smith know what you expect of them!
Then make a donation, of any amount, so that Minnesota Gun Rights has the ammo we need to get as many gun owners as possible fighting back against gun control!
