The National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban

A national coalition of grassroots, pro right to keep and bear arms organizations has formed to defeat gun bans, magazine capacity limits, attempts at registration and other gun control measures in the upcoming session of Congress.  The below letter is being sent to members of the 113th Congress as of 3 January, 2013.

Grassroots supporters of the right to keep and bear arms have drawn a “line in the sand” that any person in Congress or any bureaucrat with hopes of future political office or appointment had better be aware of.  Crossing the gun control line will bring an entirely new and highly motivated contingent of the “gun lobby” to bear.  Gun prohibitionists have nobody to blame but themselves with wild eyed threats of confiscation, police raids, forced buybacks, mandatory registration and a litany of other threats.  The gun lobby takes these threats very seriously and as the news media are finding out, gun lobbyists know how to use social media too.  The latest batch of papers releasing interactive maps of known gun owners got a dose of their own medicine when their details were published with an interactive map.  

Make no mistake, this is not a “national discussion” about guns or talk of addressing the causes of violence or solutions to it.  This latest feeding frenzy of calls for gun control are a political declaration of war.  As the gun prohibitionists have repeatedly demonstrated, they will do absolutely anything with a complete lack of shame, class or honor.  This should not be lost on the gun lobby.  

Understand, that in this political war, there are no honorable mentions, no points for doing well, and second place is first loser.  In this political war there is only victory or defeat.
