From: Subject: The George Soros anti-gun agenda




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Dear, Twin City Rifle Club Members,

New York Mayor and billionaire-playboy Michael Bloomberg wants to ban guns in Roanoke Rapids.


That may sound hard to believe if you’re not from New York or New England.

But Bloomberg is hell-bent on spending his $18 billion fortune to push his radical agenda, even where you live. The problem is, he’s succeeding even in rural states and small towns.

Over 600 Mayors in 40 states have joined Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” and they’re not concerned about crime. They just want to make your guns illegal. Period.

Profiling gun owners like sex offenders and outlawing self-defense in public places are at the top of their to-do list.

Mayors of notorious anti-gun cities like Chicago and Washington, D.C., are key members of Mayors Against Guns. They are successfully exporting their unconstitutional gun control schemes to towns all across the U.S.

That’s why I hope you’ll take a moment to complete the Gun Rights Survey to stop their anti-gun agenda by clicking below.



We must prove that MILLIONS of gun owners oppose Bloomberg’s massive anti-gun operation.

Mayors Against Guns is ALREADY forcing New York-style gun bans on state and local governments, nationwide. I need you to go on record right now in order to defeat their tireless crusade against the Second Amendment.

Mike Bloomberg is one arrogant character. His New York-style gun control is a miserable failure, but this self-styled “independent leader on national issues” is determined to force his agenda on YOUR town.

Here are just two in a long list of devious anti-gun schemes he is pushing in city councils and state legislatures nationwide:

Banning self-defense in city parks, dark library parking lots and numerous other public places.

Thanks to Mayors Against Guns, the urge to inflict so-called “gun free” zones is spreading like cancer among city politicians and bureaucrats.

Mayors Against Guns is bragging that Seattle, WA, and Atlanta, GA, recently created a host of “gun free” zones. Under pressure from Bloomberg, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Cheyenne, Wyoming, did the same. And if it can happen in these pro-gun states, it can happen anywhere.

In reality, “gun free” zones disarm only the law-abiding while gun-toting thugs are free to fire at will. That’s why I call them “criminal safe-zones.”

Registering gun owners like sex-offenders.

Bloomberg is pushing “gun offender registration,” which entraps law-abiding gun owners for nothing more than possessing a loaded handgun.

Own a semi-auto or a twelve-round magazine? You’re a criminal, and must register with the police every six months or spend a year in jail.

Think this can’t happen to you? Think again. Anti-gunners in Colorado recently tried to convert the concealed pistol permit list into a state-wide gun owner registry. It’s happening in other states, too.

That’s why I hope you’ll complete the Gun Rights Survey by clicking below and chip in $10 or $20.



Without your help, Bloomberg and Mayors Against Guns will continue destroying the Second Amendment city by city and state by state.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Bloomberg and “Mayors Against Guns” have found a new ally in the National League of Cities.

Billed as a “social welfare” organization, the League is a multi-million dollar machine funded both by your tax dollars and by arch-liberal George Soros.

Yes, I’m talking about the left-wing, America-hating billionaire George Soros who funds the leftist agenda, worldwide.

Little wonder that the National League of Cities’ is ACTIVELY pushing rabid anti-gun measures:

• Registration of all handguns

• Banning semi-automatic firearms

• Cracking down on gun shows

• A thirty-day waiting period on all gun purchases

• Ending the manufacture of magazines holding more than 10-rounds

• Turning parks, libraries and other public places into so-called "gun free" zones.

The National League of Cities is made up of 49 affiliated state Municipal Leagues, who are ACTIVELY working in state legislatures and city councils nationwide.

One of their primary goals is to create an entangling web of “criminal safe-zones,” where law-abiding gun owners can be arrested and jailed for defending themselves.



Just within the last few months, a parade of taxpayer-funded municipal stooges showed up to support city-level gun bans in New Hampshire.

In South Dakota, the state Municipal League is using tax dollars to push for sweeping self-defense bans in city parks, libraries, transit buses and numerous other public places.

The League has also been caught pushing a similar agenda in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Connecticut, Delaware, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Virginia.

These gun rights battles in state capitols and city council chambers nationwide are fierce enough. But we’re also facing increasing attacks in Washington, D.C., from the National League of Cities and Mayors Against Guns.

They are pushing Congress for a federal “cannot buy registry,” which would strip citizens of their Second Amendment rights at the whim of a Justice Department bureaucrat.

They’re also calling for a new so-called “Assault Weapons Ban,” that targets ALL semi-automatic rifles that NEVER expires, and scheming to shut down gun shows.

That’s why I need you to complete the Gun Rights Survey, TODAY! Join the rest of the National Association for Gun Rights’ one million members and supporters in standing against Bloomberg, Soros and their billion-dollar gun control schemes.

Won’t you fill out the Gun Rights Survey to help demonstrate that the American people support the right to self-defense?

Along with your Survey, I hope you can chip in $10 or $20.



We are aggressively working in Congress AND on the state and local levels to defeat so-called “gun free” zones, gun owner registration, the new Obama Semi-Auto Ban and the rest of the Bloomberg/Soros agenda.

I’ve laid out a full battle plan, including direct mail, telephones and our state-of-the-art online systems, along with TV, print media and news coverage in order to defend the Second Amendment from Mayors Against Guns and the League of Cities.

But we simply cannot win without your help. Please complete your Gun Rights Survey and consider making a generous donation.



If you make a contribution of $10 or $20, it would go a long way in defending our gun rights. If $5 is all you can do, I understand.

I will carefully invest whatever you can give in the battle to defend freedom for our children and grandchildren.

I look forward to hearing from you.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

P.S. Together, Mike Bloomberg and George Soros are worth more than $32 billion (yes, that’s with a “b”). They are hell-bent on using their vast fortunes to inflict their extremely anti-gun agenda on America.

They’re demanding that Congress label gun owners as terrorists. They’re pushing state legislatures to register handguns and profile gun owners. They’re bullying city politicians to create so-called “gun free” zones which will ensnare law-abiding gun owners while armed thugs run rampant.

It’s an all-out assault, and we can’t win without your help. Would you complete your Gun Rights Survey and chip in $10 or $20?

Go on record today to prove that America opposes the Bloomberg/Soros agenda!

This is a classic example of using fear to scare you out of your money. The NRA is the Tsar of this tactic, but I see that they aren't the only ones.

This letter reminds me a bit of the Nigerian scams that I have received in emails.

I don't know much about this Org. But I can tell you the statement that includes Atlanta, GA is misleading. The mayor of Atlanta can post all the Gun Free signage he wants, but those actions are cosmetic and cannot supersede current state law. This thread seems a bit sensational to me.

Never underestimate anti-gunners, if they are willing to send guns to Mexico and put bullets in guns at gun shows, they are capable of anything. They are coming for your guns soon. Support the nra both financially and actively. They are you best chance of it not coming down to having to use the second amendment for the reason it was written.

I concur. Just thought the article was a little sensational with the express intent of raising money.

Yeah they always need more money and it does get a bit annoying, still money well spent. I usually wait until they have some special offer if you donate. I recently posted a link where you get different gifts based on what you donate. I donated $20 and should be receiving my "get Obama out of office" challenge coin soon.

Definitely the work of an amateur that needs a proofreader. Note the title addresses Soros, but the body of the document is all about Bloomberg. Nice try at raising money, though.

Yeah, I'm gonna go with Chainfire on this one. Bloomberg and Soros are indeed anti-gun and MAIG is not a good group, but thus far I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence MAIG has been effective at influencing legislation, bans, registration, whatever.

I wont donate because I express my concerns in the voting booth where it really counts but as a NY resident, I know too well that Bloomy has much higher hopes of office than just mayor of the city with no pity and he will play society sculptor whenever and wherever he gets a chance.

Hes banning big sodas, guns and things with excessive fat content (like his head).

Dont be surprised when you see him running Nationally! Hes got the bucks and the supporters to enter almost any race he wishes and may be able to convince people that running a nation aint any tougher than NYC.
