Over the years, I’ve come to know that Gun Owners of America (GOA) is one of the most effective pro-Second Amendment groups in the U.S. I urge you to heed their caution and take action regarding the next Speaker of the U.S. House. The GOA rightfully points out that, while it was great for us to get rid of Speaker Boehner, we certainly don’t want Boehner to hand-pick his own anti-gun successor:
ACTION: Click here to tell your Congressman that you do NOT support any Congressman for House Speaker — including Rep. Paul Ryan — who is willing to compromise on Second Amendment rights!
Tell your Representative to Vote NO on Ryan
They said it couldn’t be done.
But, through your activism, you put pressure on sell-out Speaker John Boehner and helped bring his career to an unlamented end.
But there’s still work to be done.
Lest you think that things couldn’t get worse, one of the top candidates to replace Boehner is the compromising Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan (R).
Ryan voted for the Thompson-King amendment last year — an anti-gun amendment that would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list.
Already, more than 175,000 law-abiding veterans have lost their Second Amendment rights this way. And, in states like New York, this money will pay to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, merely because they consult a psychiatrist and are prescribed a therapeutic drug.
Ryan has not had many tough (recorded) votes on guns, but the things HE WANTS to do should scare you.
