Dear Fellow Patriot,
The Tuesday morning Judiciary Committee hearing over ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation in Washington, D.C. was nothing short of a sham.
Every single witness testified in support of the bill.
Even worse, not a single US Senator stood up for gun owners in opposition to this Constitution-shredding legislation!
Of course, with the National Rifle Association fully behind this legislation, it’s not a surprise that moderate Republicans on the committee are refusing to fight for gun owners!
And while this was just a hearing with no vote being taken, it’s clear that this bill is being primed to sail through the Senate at some point.
Many gun owners are asking us whether or not President Trump would sign this legislation into law.
Here’s what we know.
President Trump has expressed support for this legislation based on the recommendation of the NRA, just like he did when the NRA told him it was ok to ban bump stocks and pass Senator Feinstein’s FIX-NICS legislation last year.
The political advice that President Trump is receiving from the NRA is as bad as their policy advice, as gun owners from Portland to Tallahassee are abandoning the NRA after yet another sell out.
And if President Trump understands this, he may quickly realize that this bill is bad for America and bad for his Presidency.
That’s why the American Firearms Association has been working with state level gun rights organizations around the country over the past 48 hours, urging them to sign onto our open letter to President Trump!
You can see the letter for yourself, right here.
As you just saw, we already have ten state gun groups who have signed onto this open letter, representing over a million gun owners in total!
You see, the NRA and Senate Republicans don’t want ‘regular’ gun owners like you telling them what to do.
They think that gun owners exist to supply them with donations and votes, but that we have to leave the policy decisions to them.
We don’t believe that at the American Firearms Association!
We believe that lawmakers work for the people that sent them there! If you agree with us, and you are disgusted with Red Flag Gun Seizure legislation, then add your name to our open letter to President Trump!
As you saw in the letter to the President, ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation violates the 2nd, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution — and would destroy the American ideal of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’
But with the NRA and Senate Republicans backing this bill, it’s up to grassroots gun owners to stop this legislation in its tracks.
Your signed petition is a big part of that.
But I hope you’ll help us keep up the pressure on the U.S. Senate by joining up as a member of the American Firearms Association if you haven’t already done so.
After you’ve signed your petition and joined up with AFC, please help spread the word by taking our open letter to President Trump and sharing it with your friends and family on email and social media.
Thank you for standing with us!
— The American Firearms Association
P.S. The NRA-backed ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation (S. 7) was heard in the Judiciary Committee in Washington, D.C. earlier this week.
Every witness testified in support of the bill, and not a single Senator stood up and fought for gun owners.
That’s why AFC is trying to get as many gun owners as possible to sign our open letter to President Trump, calling on him to publicly oppose the bill and to veto it if it lands on his desk!
