    Default Washington Republicans Folding Like Cheap Suits Under The Pressure to Ban Guns

    Washington Republicans Folding Like Cheap Suits Under The Pressure to Ban Guns

    Colorado -–(Ammoland.com)- You might think that with Republicans in control of the US House of Representatives there would be no way ANY gun control legislation could reach the floor.

    But sadly we are already beginning to see so-called “conservative champions” folding to pressure from the anti-gun media to sell-out gun owners.

    Former Vice Presidential candidate, Congressman Paul Ryan, has stated that he would support legislation that bans private sales at gun shows.

    In the House, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, along with the help of Rep. Scott Rigell (VA), Patrick Meehan (PA) and others, have stated openly that they will work together with anti-gun Democrats from Maryland and New York to tighten restrictions on private firearms sales and expand background checks.

    Possibly even more upsetting has been Senator Tom Coburn’s willingness to work alongside anti-gunner Chuck Schumer (NY) to propose “bi-partisan” anti-gun legislation in the Senate.

    Make no mistake, so-called “expansion” of background checks is little more than a blatant attempt by anti-gunners to register all firearms and gun owners in America.

    That is why Representatives Steve Stockman (TX-36) and Paul Broun (GA-10) have drafted a letter to Speaker Boehner and the Republican leadership urging them to require the support of the majority of Republican members in the House before bringing any anti-gun bills to the floor.

    This so-called “Hastert Rule” would mean that 117 Republicans would have to support a particular bill before it had any chance of getting a floor vote, not just the support of the anti-gun elitist in leadership.

    Gun owners are under attack from all sides . . .

    •The Feinstein Gun Ban. The UN Small Arms Treay.
    •Unconstitutional Executive Orders from President Obama.
    •Increased intimidation of gun dealers from the ATF under the guidance of a radical Attorney General.

    Anti-gun fat cats like Michael Bloomberg spending millions of dollars to produce misleading surveys and TV ads supporting dozens of bills in both the House and Senate that seek to ban hundreds of firearms outright.

    The list goes on and on.

    Now we as defenders of the Second Amendment have to watch our backs from the very people who were elected to fight against such encroachments.

    With the House firmly in control by the Republicans, it is an absolute disgrace that such a letter from Stockman and Broun even needs to be written in the first place.

    Thankfully for you and I, we have a few good men left in Congress.

    It just goes to show that at the end of the day (with a few exceptions) that politicians will only do what is right if they are pressured into it.

    Again and again it has been demonstrated that gun owners’ greatest allies are themselves.

    That is why I am asking you to ask your Congressman to openly support the Stockman-Broun letter to Speaker Boehner. Call today!

    Tell them that if they really support your rights then you need to see action!

    Signing the Stockman-Broun letter is a good first step in signifying support for the Second Amendment.

    Black Blade: The Republican Party is dead. Just like the Whig Party before them they have come to the end of their lifespan as a Party. Time for the Republican Party to disolve and true Americans to form a new party (perhaps even join the Libertarian Party). Whatever they choose it's time to drive a stake through the heart of what's left of the Republican Party and leave these turncoats behind twisting in the wind. The Republican Party has arrived at its "Whig Party Moment" in history.

    All the crooks in the ivory tower have been selling us out. Get rid of all of them and we need some Repubs with some backbone and we need to get rid of the rank and file Democrats who will do whatever their Messiah and Chief tell them to do.

    Sadly, voting in replacements will not guarantee anything. What is promised during a campaign is rarely honored once the politician occupies his seat; exemplified in the aforementioned article. Until the politicians change their mindset and modus operandi, the situation is likely to remain static; the newbies become infected with the same "ivory tower" virus. Until the populace understands this and takes back the power loaned these elected officials, there is little hope for change.

    what we have today is commonly called "machine politics" replacing the faces in the machine still lives the machine operating.

    to take the country back the "machine" that is putting the Obammas, clintons and bush types in office HAS to be broken.

    the "machine" owns and operates both parties. sure it spews out opposite types of propaganda yet the end result is wall-street / the fed and banking gets everything it wants.

    if the democrats are voted out leaving only republicans how long before the republicans devise a way to sell out the constitution?

    as soon as it suits big biz is the answer--

    the machine has to be broke down for any kind of return to constitutional government.

    the way obamma is spending the USA into the third world --the machine may break down all on its own , sooner rather than later--

    You're dead on Buck.

    The definition of insane is repeatedly doing the same thing, yet expecting different results. Well nothing personal but most of us are apparently insane. Like 427 said, the machine needs to break down before it can be changed.
