(The email below deals with Universal Background Checks, which New York State already has. But if you ever thought about moving someday — or if you want your children or grandchildren to live in a freer state someday — please take action on this now!)
We have a total gun control EMERGENCY on our hands and we need your help NOW!
Only moments ago, the Biden White House and Nancy Pelosi launched a massive attack on our Second Amendment and what is shaping up to be THE major gun control push of 2021!
H.R. 8, introduced just this week, is being sold to gun owners as an innocent ‘Universal Background Check bill’ that shouldn’t bother gun owners like you and me.
But the reality is far different and far worse.
This legislation is at the very top of the gun-control agenda being pushed by Nancy Pelosi and Michael Bloomberg, because far from being a harmless bill, H.R. 8 would create a database of every gun owner in America — then hand it over to Joe Biden!
Worse, H.R.8 would make it a FELONY offense to sell, loan or transfer a firearm to someone without first running a NICS check and adding that person’s name to the government’s database.
Want to sell your cousin a Remington 870 for hunting season? If you don’t first obtain government permission, you’d be a felon!
Want to trade a historic .22 rifle with your brother-in-law as many gun owners like to do? If you don’t first obtain government permission, you’d be a felon!
The list goes on and on and on.
Pelosi and Biden’s ultimate goal is to create a system where every transfer of every firearm is run through a government database, to give them the ultimate list of who owns firearms in this country!
We all know why.
Before the government could ever try to confiscate firearms, they would need to know where they are, and that’s exactly what this bill would begin to do!
But that’s not the worst of it.
Gun owners already know that Nancy Pelosi has the smallest Congressional majority in 100 years, which should increase our chances of HAMMERING them back and stopping their gun control push.
But Bloomberg funded activists have done their work and whipped up BI-PARTISAN support for H.R. 8!
RINO traitors Fred Upton (R-MI), Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) are 3 REPUBLICAN co-sponsors of only 7 co-sponsors so far on this bill!
That means H.R. 8 currently has tremendous support from the Never-Trumper caucus, making it easier for Pelosi to RAM this bill through her chamber.
Please understand the games that Biden and Pelosi are playing here.
The bill has been drafted so as to exclude firearms transfers between immediate family members within two degrees of consanguinity.
Far from being a good thing, this is very dangerous to our right to keep and bear arms.
Pelosi knows that the more egregious this bill is, the more gun owners will stand up and oppose it. Making it a crime for a grandfather to pass down his firearms to his son and grandson would anger millions of gun owners, for example.
By carving this type of transfer out of H.R. 8, Pelosi is trying to lull gun owners into a sense of calm, desperately hoping that you do not take action!
But as we’ve seen in gun control states all across America, the moment they get this “not-as-bad” gun control bill on the House Floor for a vote, they’ll amend it on the spot, strip out any exclusions for family and ram it through before you can blink.
Don’t let them get away with this!
The fact is, this very same bill only died in 2019 because President Donald Trump tweeted that if H.R. 8 (yes, it had the very same bill number) landed on his desk, he would immediately veto this legislation.
With President Trump out of their way, they’re going to move FAST!
They want to crush the Second Amendment, break the back of gun owners, and destroy our heritage of freedom and patriotism!
This bill is an attempt to do exactly that!
So please SIGN YOUR OFFICIAL PETITION right away, telling your Congressman that you’re watching this closely, that you went them to PUBLICLY FIGHT H.R.8 and that you’ll remember their votes on this bill in 2022.
And when you’re done, please make an EMERGENCY donation to the New York State Firearms Association right away so that we can flood New York’s congressional delegation with calls and emails against this legislation!
For $250, we can send out 25,000 emails into targeted districts, informing and mobilizing gun owners.
For $100, we can sponsor targeted online media efforts into a congressional district, that can be seen by thousands.
Even $50, $25 or $10 can help us crank up the heat using a combination of the programs listed above.
For New York,
NYS Firearms Association
P.S. Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg and Nancy Pelosi just unveiled THE gun control push of 2021!
H.R. 8 is the top goal for Nancy Pelosi and Michael Bloomberg, as it creates a national registry of gun owners by requiring that virtually EVERY firearms transfer goes through a government check first!
SIGN your official petition against H.R. 8 immediately, so that your politicians in Congress know that you expect them to ‘VOTE NO’ on this legislation which forces your name into a government database!When you’re done, please make an emergency donation to the New York State Firearms Association so that we can crank up the heat on our Congressional delegation in Washington, D.C.!
