GRNC Alert 4-12-13: Senators Hagan and Burr Stab NC Gun Owners in Back

Both Sen. Hagan and Burr joined to support the Obama/Biden/Feinstein gun ban

Misguided US Senate gun control proposals could have been quickly killed during Thursday’s vote to proceed, if not for 13 “sell-out” Republicans who cut unknown deals with Harry Reid (D-AZ). Both of our Senators voted to subject our Second Amendment rights to infringement. This is unacceptable, and they both must pay.

It was perhaps expected from Hagan given her GRNC 0-star rating, but Burr’s betrayal is unforgivable. As late as Wednesday, April 10th he had pledged to join patriots like Senators Paul and Cruz in filibustering the motion to proceed. The fact the very next day he voted in favor MAKES IT CLEAR Burr has LIED to NC voters and cannot be trusted to defend our fundamental liberties.

They both may claim they “want debate” and that they don’t intend to vote for the bill, and that there are opportunities to filibuster later. Don’t buy it. There is nothing good that can come from this bad bill remaining alive a second longer than it has to. It is now possible to use this bill as a “vehicle” for unknown amendments that will be introduced – including Feinstein’s modern rifle ban. The entire federal gun control effort could have been over today and the threat behind us. Instead, now we must watch the Senate’s every move as “must pass before we know what’s in it” amendments are introduced.

Both Burr and Hagan need to understand that IF ANY gun control restrictions are passed as a result of their betrayal THEY WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE!

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!

  • Contact Sen. Hagan and Sen. Burr. Tell them you don’t appreciate being lied to. They have betrayed your trust and have much to do in order to regain it – including opposing any and all progress of any element of this misguided legislation.

DELIVER THIS MESSAGE

To Sen. Hagan

Dear Senator Hagan:

I am very disappointed that you have voted in favor of proceeding with the Obama/Biden/Feinstein gun control bill. Nothing so far proposed will do anything to reduce violent crime or prevent mass-murder of those made defenseless by law in “Gun Free Zones”, such as the children killed in Newtown. The problem isn’t so much that criminals are armed, but that we have laws imposing defenselessness that seem to pretend criminals will obey them.

What you have helped move can only further erode the Second Amendment freedom of law-abiding Americans. There can be no excuse for this.

As your constituent I expect you to do all in your power to eliminate the threat this bad bill presents to my fundamental liberty at every opportunity.

I will be following progress through Grass Roots North Carolina alerts.

Sincerely,

To Senator Burr

Dear Senator Burr:I am very disappointed that you have voted in favor of proceeding with the Obama/Biden/Feinstein gun control bill. This disappointment is particularly sharp because you lied about joining a filibuster of the motion to proceed with it. This dishonesty is unforgivable, and you have much to do in order to regain my trust.

    IMO both of these letters are BS!
    Why do we get involved in any discussion about our 2nd Amendment right have and bear arms that do not start of with “What part of the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Do you have the most problem understanding? If that is too hard lets look at the Constitution for the State of North Carolina. It says in Sec. 30. Militia and the right to bear arms.
    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed;”
    This is not a political discussion of any kind. This is Treason for those who take part in any decision to enact any law that in any way does, or attempts to, limit, control, or deny the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
    These laws were never put in place so they could be used to gain power for the Government.
    Treason is a Felony! Denying the people their Yahweh (God) given rights that are stated in plain english is Treason against the people of this nation.
    To do so as a legislator is the greatest of all Treasons because they do it with full knowledge and clear intent.
    This is what they need to be told!
