Sellout is worse than the Feinstein gun ban!
Urgent action required. It is urgent that every gun owner call their Senators today and demand that they oppose the “See a Shrink, Lose your Guns” sell-out bill that is being authored by Senators Pat Toomey (R) and Joe Manchin (D) - but which also has Chuck Schumer’s fingerprints all over it. Call immediately at 202-224-3121.
See a Shrink, Lose your Guns. The anti-gun "ranters" have spent the last week telling us that Republican Senators can’t filibuster Harry Reid’s gun control bill; that they can’t cut off debate to a bill they haven’t seen yet. “Let the bill come up,” they say. “We need to see the bill” before Senators can vote against cloture to proceed to it.
Well, we’ve seen the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer sell-out, and it’s worse than the Feinstein gun ban, which will reportedly be tied to it and offered simultaneously in a Senate procedure known as an “amendment tree.”
Toomey and Manchin will claim that their bill only covers “gun show sales” and Internet sales. But if you’ve ever talked about your gun and /or let it be known you’d like to sell or buy a gun on the Internet, this language covers you. If you advertise your gun in the church bulletin and the bulletin is put on the Internet, you’re covered.
The only exemption is for sales that are sold exclusively by word of mouth. The increased number of background checks would likely exacerbate the system breakdowns (inherent to NICS) which have shut down gun shows over and over again. It would mean that Americans who were illegally denied firearms because their names were similar to other people's would effectively be barred from owning a gun. (We would never tolerate such delays for voting rights or other freedoms that we are guaranteed.)
And for those Republicans who think they’re going to be able to offer their useless amendments, guess what? Reid is reportedly going to use a procedure to block out all amendments (called an “amendment tree”). And there are plenty of Senators standing in line to make sure that the Senate doesn’t give “unanimous consent” to let those Republicans offer their amendments.
So if you live in a rural area, you’re effectively barred from selling or buying a gun - or it at least becomes very, very difficult.
Incidentally, the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer “national registry” language is full of holes. There will be a national gun registry as a result of this sell-out.
But that’s not the worst part. Under an amendment in the bill to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), you could have your guns taken away because your private shrink thinks you’re “dangerous” and could send your name directly to the FBI Instant Check system.
Did you think it was terrible that 150,000 military veterans had been added into the NICS system because they’d seen a VA shrink about their PTSD? Well guess what? Now it’s going to happen to the rest of the population ... by the millions!
And the next step, of course, will be to begin to sue psychiatrists that don’t send every single patient’s name to the Instant Check system, and to make sure that their lives are ruined if they don’t send a patient to NICS and anything goes wrong.
The bottom line: “See a shrink; lose your guns.”
All of this will reportedly be on an amendment tree with the Feinstein gun ban and magazine bans.
Repeal of gun owner protections. In addition, Toomey no doubt unintentionally agreed to repeal one of the most important protections for gun owners that was included in the 1986 McClure-Volkmer Act - the provision that would allow you to take an unloaded, locked-up gun through states like New York without being stopped. Under a new subsection (c), the Toomey-Manchin-Schumer bill would require you to “demonstrate” to the satisfaction of New York police where you were coming from and where you are going to. And, if you don’t do that to their satisfaction, they can arrest you.
Please keep in mind, nothing in this bill would have stopped Newtown dirtbag from killing his mother and taking the firearms that she owned and perpetrating the horrible crimes that he committed.
Nothing is this bill would actually make children safer at schools. There is nothing that will actually keep bad guys from stealing or illegally acquiring guns, but there’s plenty that will threaten our gun rights!
ACTION: Click here to contact your two senators immediately. Tell them the “see a shrink; lose your guns” sellout is even worse than the Feinstein gun ban which will reportedly be on the same amendment tree with it. Distribute this alert far and wide.
Time is short, so if you call - at 202-224-3121 - you may click here to see the pre-written letter and use the contents to help direct your comments.
Gun Owners of America
The Fight for our Gun Rights to Continue
through the Christmas Holidays
GOA makes a great stocking stuffer!
“[GOA’s] Rhetoric Signals Tough Road for Legislation” -- Roll Call, December 18, 2012
Gun Owners of America has, literally, been working around the clock this week. From speaking to media around the nation (and around the world), to briefing congressmen on Capitol Hill, GOA lobbyists and staff are providing the policy elites the “bullet points” they need to combat the approaching onslaught against our rights.
We told you yesterday about the Piers Morgan debate on CNN which you can watch here.
If you still haven’t seen it, you’re missing a heck of a debate.
GOA’s Facebook page lit up with all kinds of kudos for the way GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt man-handled Morgan:
* “I'm a proud member of GOA and this was a great debate.” -- Freddy Kasprzykowski
* “Bravo Larry!! You wrecked that moron.” -- Dennis Walker
* “I was absolutely inspired by Larry's willingness to be the first pro-gun voice to face the liberal lynch mob. Joined the GOA today, and damned proud of it. Do the same, everyone! If there is a time to join, this is it!” -- Terry Threlfall, Jr.
This is a great time to join!
If you are already a GOA member, why not offer your family members or friends a gift subscription to Gun Owners of America?
Click here to order a gift membership and print out a gift certificate that will make a good Christmas stocking stuffer!
One savvy gun owner has already bought Piers Morgan a gift membership in GOA so he can get educated on the issues. That’s no joke. Piers Morgan is one of the newest GOA members, thanks to the generosity of this “Secret Santa.”
So, if you really want to help educate (and annoy) some of your liberal friends, you might consider following suit!
Thank you for standing with us this year.
Two Reciprocity Bills: A Strong Bill verses a Compromise
Pro-gun Senate champions John Thune (R-SD) and David Vitter (R-LA) have decided to stand their ground on their concealed carry reciprocity legislation, despite pressure from gun rights compromisers to weaken the bill.
Specifically, Senators Thune and Vitter are sticking with their version of the bill, which recognizes the right to carry concealed by residents of “Vermont-style” and “Constitutional Carry” states.
Such states do not require residents to obtain the government’s permission before carrying a firearm for self-protection. There are currently 17 states that have either enacted legislation in the past or have introduced “Constitutional Carry” laws in their legislatures this year.
South Dakota (on governor’s desk)
More states are being added to the list all the time. The Thune-Vitter legislation will fully recognize gun owners’ rights in these states.
A competing bill, however, pulls the rug out from under “Constitutional Carry.” Sponsored by Senators Mark Begich (D-AK) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), the compromise bill still requires a government permit for reciprocity, regardless of state law.
So while the states are moving in the direction of more freedom, the Begich and Manchin bill would keep even the most pro-gun states tied to a permitting system. Why are they doing this? After all, criminals don’t get in line at the police station to get a permit. It’s the law-abiding gun owners who go through the process of proving their innocence before being “allowed” to carry a firearm.
We have a message for Begich and Manchin: gun ownership is a right, not a privilege.
It is vitally important that your two Senators hear from you right away. Urge them NOT to support the compromise bill, and instead support the pro-gun legislation offered by Senators Thune and Vitter.
ACTION: Contact your Senators. Insist that they cosponsor the strong pro-gun Thune-Vitter reciprocity bill, which protects Constitutional Carry, and urge them not to support the Begich-Manchin compromise.

GOA representatives are traveling coast-to-coast to discuss the differences between candidates running for office.
GOA's Political Victory Fund has already issued scores of alerts, endorsements and contributions in important elections that will take place next week. You can go to goapvf.org to see the highlights of these races.
GOA representatives are appearing at press conferences or rallies in several states. While the following are just the tip of the iceberg, they represent the type of work that GOA is doing:
* Arizona, Dist. 1 -- Paul Gosar (A rated) vs. Ann Kirkpatrick (C rated)
* Colorado, Dist. 3 -- Scott Tipton (A rated) vs. John Salazar (D rated)
* Florida, Dist. 2 -- Steve Southerland (A- rated) vs. Allen Boyd (D rated)
* Georgia, Dist. 2 -- Mike Keown (A- rated) vs. Sanford Bishop (C- rated)
* Michigan, Dist. 7 -- Tim Walberg (A rated) vs. Mark Schauer (D rated)
* Minnesota, Dist. 8 -- Chip Cravaack (A rated) vs. Jim Oberstar (D rated)
* Missouri, Dist. 4 -- Vicky Hartzler (A rated) vs. Ike Skelton (C rated)
* New Mexico, Dist. 1 -- Jon Barela (A rated) vs. Martin Heinrich (D rated)
New Mexico, Dist. 2 -- Steve Pearce (A rated) vs. Harry Teague (C rated)
New Mexico, Dist. 3 -- Tom Mullins (A rated) vs. Ben Ray Lujan (F rated)
* Pennsylvania, Dist. 11 -- Lou Barletta (A rated) vs. Paul Kanjorski (D rated)
Pennsylvania, Dist. 12 -- Tim Burns (A rated) vs. Mark Critz (NR)
* Virginia, Dist. 9 -- Morgan Griffith (A rated) vs. Rick Boucher (C rated)
* Washington, Dist. 2 -- John Koster (A rated) vs. Rick Larsen (F rated)
Many of the above races involve Blue Dog Democrats who are trying to portray themselves as solid defenders of the Second Amendment, but their current grades seem to reveal they are nothing more than Pelosi puppets.
You can go to this link to see a bigger list of Blue Dogs who have been working to prop up Pelosi.
The GOA representatives who will be traveling this week include Vice-Chairman Tim Macy, Executive Director Larry Pratt, Director of Federal Affairs John Velleco, and Director of Communications Erich Pratt.
