The fight against gun control in Texas still isn’t over.
Three gun control hearings have taken place over the past three weeks and another is scheduled in Austin for this Wednesday, October 30th.
That’s why I need pro-gun Texans to send a resounding message to their lawmakers: No gun control, no compromise!
So please sign your “No Gun Control Mandate” RIGHT AWAY.
Following the recent tragedies in El Paso and Midland-Odessa, politicians are eager to strike a “deal” on gun control and “do something” to get the heat off their backs from the anti-gun media.
And the Texas House and Senate committees taking testimony are stacked with anti-gun voices...
When I attended the October 10th hearing in Dallas, pro-gun Texans dominated the public testimony portion of the hearing.
Activists repeated for over three hours the best way to make Texas safer is to allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms for self-defense.
They called for an end to “gun-free” zones and government permission slips to exercise their Second Amendment rights...
In spite of this, anti-gun activists continued bombarding the committee to consider proposals like Universal Gun Registration and “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation.
“Red Flag” legislation would allow government agents to seize every firearm you own with ZERO due process.
That means your guns are confiscated without a trial being held or a crime being committed. Only a simple accusation is required.
They just need someone who’s mad at you and willing to testify in a secret, “ex parte” hearing (where you’re not present and cannot defend yourself)!
Then, of course, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick is already leading the charge for Obama-era Universal Gun Registration that would ban the private sale of firearms.
Shepherding the names of all would-be gun purchasers into a federal database. A de facto gun registry.
Registration is a TOP priority for Bloomberg-funded “Moms Against Guns,” who are organizing their protestors ahead of every single one of these hearings.
As most Second Amendment supporters know, registration is just the FIRST step toward outright confiscation.
Capitulating to the anti-gun lobby could spell utter disaster leading into the 2020 elections -– especially in Texas.
That’s why I recently delivered nearly 20,000 signed “No Gun Control Mandate” petitions to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick.
But with the next gun control hearing scheduled in Austin for October 30th, I’m hoping to gather even more petitions from pro-gun Texans across the state.
So please sign your “No Gun Control Mandate” and forward this email to all your pro-gun family members, friends, and neighbors right away!
And if you can attend the hearing in Austin on Wednesday, the hearing starts promptly at 10AM in Room E1.036 of the Texas Capitol at 1100 Congress Ave., Austin, TX 78701.
If you come, don’t feel obligated to speak.
Bodies in the seats -- showing solidarity for the Second Amendment -- will speak volumes by itself.
But if you’re unable to attend, please chip in $30 or even $10 to help TXGR continue mobilizing pro-gun Texans around the state!
If we don’t take a stand against radical gun control now, it could have dire consequences for Texas in 2020.
Thank you for your continued support.
For Texas and Liberty,
