200 Lawmakers Band Together Against 2nd Amd
Posted By: Scott Weber 12/19/2014 @ 08:58 AM

SAF Will Stop The Attack On Our States!

     Nearly 200 anonymous (for now) state lawmakers have formed a gun control group in order to attack gun rights in our states. They are calling themselves American State Legislators for Gun Violence Prevention (ASLGVP).

     Their reason for forming the anti-gun coalition is because of the lack of success by Congress to deteriorate our gun rights at the federal level. Now they are taking matters into their own hands by attacking gun rights in each of our states.

     Their founder, Brian Kavanagh (D-NY), has proposed anti-gun legislation such as limiting gun owners to one purchase every 30 days, mandatory 10-day waiting periods before being able to accept a firearm, banning .50-cal rifles and ammo, and many more. This is what we have to look forward to from this group.

     SAF has become one of the biggest names in protecting gun rights by challenging anti-gun laws in the courts from coast to coast. You can bet the Second Amendment Foundation will be there to protect your rights from the wave of new anti-gun laws headed to your state.   We are not guessing this coalition was formed because Congress did not get anti-gun legislation passed, they are being open about it:

      Their founder, Brian Kavanagh (D-NY), said, "We've come together in recognition of the essential role state legislators must play, whether or not Congress chooses to act, in reducing gun violence."

     Another member, Senator Jose R. Rodriguez (D-TX) said, "Given Congress's inability to enact sensible, commonsense laws, this coalition promises to provide legislators an avenue to share effective ways to reduce gun violence."

      New gun control groups never use the words 'gun control'. They have learned that the public buys into their message quicker when they hide their agenda behind the words 'reduce gun violence' or 'gun violence prevention'.

     It would be easier for all of us if their mission statement included their true agenda which is 'we are going after your gun rights'. ASLGVP includes all of the correct vocabulary in their goals, like reducing gun violence, yet their founder has introduced many anti-gun bills that have nothing to do with reducing gun violence.

     When have you heard of a 50 caliber rifle being used in a mass shooting? How will restricting a law abiding gun owner to the purchase of one firearm per month prevent gun violence? Do not let their calculated diction fool you, they are after our firearms and they are headed to our states.

      One report said that the group had not yet published a list of members over concerns about "political backlash." If these state lawmakers are worried about political backlash back home, they must have good reason for that.

     Frankly, elected officials promoting an agenda to erode state and federal constitutional rights, as members of a New York-based group whose roster is apparently secret, ought to expect some political backlash.

     They failed to pressure Congress, so now the strategy is to attack gun rights at the state level, where presumably members of this new anti-gun lawmakers' group will push their gun control agenda through the state legislatures.

      SAF lawsuits have overturned laws not only in Washington D.C., but in several states including Illinois, California, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nebraska, and cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Des Moines and New Haven, among others. Threats of SAF lawsuits have removed well over 200 anti-gun-rights laws across the country as well as stopping hundreds more from being enacted.

     Gun owners in all 50 states deserve to know, before legislative sessions begin next month, which lawmakers in their states will be pushing this new group's agenda.

     Private lobbying organizations might expect to have some degree of privacy but when an organization consists of elected public officials, there must be complete transparency. The public deserves to know who belongs to this organization, and who is providing financial support.

     This might take a Second Amendment Foundation freedom of information suit to get this information public.

     Without you, all our doors would be closed and who knows what rights we would have left.

     Thank you. I know I can count on you.

Sincerely yours,

Alan M. Gottlieb

Second Amendment Foundation

P.S. Remember, the anti-gunners are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to steal our rights from us -- we need your support now to help stop them dead in their tracks!
