(The email below deals with universal background checks in D.C. New York State already has this law on the books. But for those of you who are thinking about moving to a freer state someday, please read this email and take action, or the entire country will have New York styled gun laws!)
Michael Bloomberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars attacking President Trump and pro-gun candidates up and down the ballot last year for one primary reason.
He, along with the rest of the socialist left, is determined to pass ‘Universal Background Checks’ in 2021, because that’s the only way they are going to get a list of gun owners in America!
You see, Joe Biden made it very clear on the campaign trail that he absolutely intends to confiscate firearms from law abiding gun owners. But before he can do that, he has to know where they are.
And by mandating a NICS check for every firearms transfer –turning you into a felon for even passing a firearm down to your grandchildren — they will soon have the list they need!
Once that list is built, gun owners will be facing a disaster.
Despite this, some gun owners are wondering if this is an area that we should compromise on, believing the bogus hype that background checks will lead to a reduction in violent crime.
That is a mistake.
The truth is that everyone who has investigated this issue knows that virtually every mass shooting over the last decade was carried out by a criminal who first passed a background check!
Don’t take our word for it, look them up for yourself. Every one of the shootings you see below was committed by a criminal who passed a background check:
The February 14, 2018 Parkland, FL shooting;
The November 5, 2017 Sutherland Springs, TX shooting;
The October 1, 2017 Las Vegas, NV shooting;
The June 12, 2016 Orlando, FL shooting;
The December 2, 2015 San Bernardino, CA shooting;
The October 1, 2015 Roseburg, OR shooting;
The June 17, 2015 Charleston, SC shooting;
The April 2, 2014 Fort Hood shooting;
The September 16, 2013 Washington D.C. Navy Yard shooting;
The August 5, 2012 Oak Creek, WI shooting;
The July 20, 2012 Aurora, CO shooting;
The January 8, 2011 Tucson, AZ shooting;
The November 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting.
Clearly, background checks are completely worthless in stopping violent crime!
And let’s not forget, the politicians who are pushing this legislation are the same politicians who publicly praised ANTIFA rioters as they burned, looted, and murdered their way across America last summer.
The politicians who are pushing this legislation are the same politicians who have been working overtime to defund the police across the country.
And the politicians who are pushing this legislation are the same politicians who are pushing for ‘catch and release’ criminal bail reform laws, that force the police to turn violent criminals back onto the streets without requiring bail!
These people couldn’t care less about your safety.
This legislation is about one thing only: creating a nationwide database of every gun owner in the country, to make it possible for the government to confiscate guns some day down the road!
But before they can do that, they first have to pass this legislation through Congress.
And as we’ve told you before, Nancy Pelosi is controlling the smallest Congressional majority in over 100 years. And Chuck Schumer has a mere 50-50 majority in the Senate, when you include Kamala Harris’s tie-breaking vote.
We can hold the line for freedom!
But I also need to ask for your support.
The NYS Firearms Association is working to flood the state with digital ads, to get as many gun owners as possible standing in opposition to this legislation.
Frankly, we can’t trust anyone in D.C. anymore, regardless of party affiliation. Everyone in Congress needs to hear from gun owners, to make sure they know that we expect them to oppose this attack on our gun rights.
Nancy Pelosi is going to try to file and pass this legislation at a record pace, we need to ramp up the pressure NOW!
NYS Firearms Association
P.S. The same America-hating leftists who spent all last year praising ANTIFA radicals as they rioted and looted their way across the country, are now trying to convince gun owners to support ‘Universal Background Checks’ — claiming they will reduce crime.
These hypocrites hope you miss the fact that the real purpose of this legislation is to build a database of every gun owner in America!
And when you’re done, please donate immediately, so the NYS Firearms Association can get the word out about this legislation to every gun owner in the state!
