Post GOA Alert

Boehner Secretly Plotting to Stab
Gun Owners in the Back

In a closed-door meeting of wealthy contributors in Las Vegas, House Speaker John Boehner said he was “hell-bent on getting [anti-gun immigration amnesty] done this year.”

And earlier this week, the Speaker viciously mocked conservative Republicans for opposing him on this issue.

The wily Boehner had led his conservative Republican members to believe the issue was shelved for the year. Now it appears that Boehner is simply planting a trap for Republicans and gun owners -- springing this Obama-backed proposal when it’s too late to primary anti-gun Republican amnesty supporters.

Gun Owners of America has argued all along that Second Amendment supporters have “a dog in this fight.”

In 1986, Ronald Reagan signed an immigration amnesty bill for about 3 million illegals. It was supposed to be accompanied by new enforcement measures -- which never happened. Instead, the prospect of citizenship only attracted over ten million new illegals. And those granted amnesty in 1986 turned California from a “swing state” into an anti-gun nightmare.

A Pew poll from last year indicated that if illegal immigrants were given citizenship, they would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.

So by the time that a net 8,000,000-plus additional anti-gun voters emerge from Obama's new proposal, it will be far too late to do anything about it. Handgun bans. Total gun registration. Confiscation programs. SWAT teams. These will be the inevitable consequence of adding 8,000,000 new anti-gun voters to the electorate.

Boehner’s Republican members understand that anti-gun immigration amnesty could cost Republicans the Senate and House in November -- and would damage their prospects even more in long-term.

This is why, up until now, he was pretending to shelve the issue.

Boehner thinks he can get away with bushwhacking the Republican members who elected him Speaker. But the good news is that there is a procedure for unseating the Speaker, and we are beginning to work with members in order to invoke it.

ACTION:

1. Contact your Representative. Please urge him to oppose any efforts to move anti-gun amnesty legislation -- regardless of his party affiliation. But if he is a Republican, ask him to move for Boehner's removal if, as reported, he betrays his own members -- and jeopardizes control of the House.

2. Contact Speaker Boehner and tell him to get off his “hell-bent” road to anti-gun amnesty. There is absolutely NO WAY for you to communicate with the Speaker (via email) if you live outside of his district. So if you wish to communicate with him, please contact his office using the following methods:

* Phone: (202)225-6205

* Fax: (202)225-0704

Is this like the warning GOA has been sending for the past year that Hilary and the UN are going to take our guns, despite the fact that the senate sent a letter to the UN that the treaty was dead in the water before it was completed. The only two people on this earth that believe the UN small arms trade treaty was ratified are Barrack Obama and Dudley Brown.

Republicans talk a fine line of bull$hit when it comes to supporting our Second Amendment rights. However, the movers and shakers in the Republican party have never been comfortable with our Second Amendment rights: It's about control, you know. Republican support in congress brought us the gun free school zones law (twice), the "cop killer" and the spousal abuse law that prevents those found guilty of certain misdemeanors from legally owning guns. The first gun free schools law and Lautenberg were wrapped up in one convenient package.

Newt Gingrich promised to take care of law abiding gunowners. In the end he stabbed us in the back. Then Gingrich wanted to be president, thinking his support for Clinton era gun control trash would be forgotten.

Quote:
Also in 1996, Speaker Gingrich cast his vote for an anti-gun terror bill which contained several harmful provisions. For example, one of the versions he supported (in March of that year) contained a DeLauro amendment that would have severely punished gun owners for possessing a laser sighting device while committing an infraction as minor as speeding on a federal reservation.5 (Not only would this provision have stigmatized laser sights, it would have served as a first step to banning these items.) Another extremely harmful provision was the Schumer amendment to “centralize Federal, State and Local police.”6
