After 8 years of fighting for gun owners in three state legislatures, I know that the radical left will say and do anything as they try to disarm law abiding Americans.
I remember Washington state attorney General Bob Ferguson claim that banning magazines over 10 rounds was going to save hundreds of lives.
Nevermind that even leftist research has shown that these measures don’t matter at all to criminals and have no impact on crime rates.
Ferguson and gun grabbers will say anything to attack gun owners.
And it’s clear that in their pursuit of radical gun control, today’s leftists will do anything.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone to learn that leftist politicians in Washington D.C. — and the extreme groups that support them — are trying to use the Coronavirus to pass gun control! Check out this email they were sending out to their supporters!
As you may remember, over 100 members of Congress — Republicans and Democrats alike — recently sent a letter to Senator Mitch McConnell, demanding that he include ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ in the last round of stimulus spending.
While that effort failed, the next stimulus bill (CARE2 Act) is already being negotiated in the Senate.
And while we don’t know what gun control bill Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues will demand be included in it, insiders continue to tell us that H.R. 5717 remains at the top of Pelosi’s list!
<![if !mso]>OPPOSE H.R. 5717 – SEND YOUR EMAIL!<![endif]>
Don’t forget, H.R. 5717 is the biggest gun control bill that we have ever seen in this country.
Sponsored by Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressman Hank Johnson, this legislation would:
>>> Create a national permit to buy a gun
>>> Establish a nationwide gun registry
>>> Institute a national ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ law
>>> Ban virtually every semi-automatic rifle in the country
>>> Make it a felony to buy a ‘high capacity’ magazine
>>> Tax guns at 30% and ammo at 50%
>>> Put you in jail for buying more than 1 gun a month
>>> Force you to lock up your firearms at all times
>>> Criminalize the sale of firearms to Americans under 21
>>> Ban the sale of suppressors
>>> Make it a crime to build a firearm in your own home
We must stop this!
Not a single piece of this legislation can be allowed to be added to CARE2!
Please make sure that Senators Risch and Crapo know that gun owners are 100% opposed to the left’s agenda of using Coronavirus stimulus money to advance gun control!
And then please consider a donation to help the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance do everything we can to mobilize Idahoans against this terrible legislation!

P.S. Raging gun grabbers in Congress and Bloomberg funded organizations are hoping that they can force the U.S. Senate to add gun control into CARE2 — the next round of stimulus spending!
We can’t take any chances, and a growing number of Republican lawmakers are agreeing to this!
