NAGR: What the NRA should be! No compromise with your rights, ever!

November 12, 2013

While there are many Second Amendment support groups the most well known, and reviled by those that suffer from the mental illness hoplophobia really does very little for the day to day supporter of the Bill of Rights. That being the National Rifle Association. Please don’t get me wrong about the NRA. They are possibly the very first safety organization of any type in history, and it is doubtless that the firearm safety programs started by them have saved countless lives, as well as reduced severe injuries all around the world, and have served the vital function of providing a working template for virtually all safety programs.

Feared by many politicians, the NRA has clout. However, when it comes to politics? The NRA is a true failure. They refuse to fight the tough fights. Only getting into those in which the probability of success is high. Indeed, the refusal to actually get involved in the dirty work led to the formation of Gun Owners of America as well as others. Wyoming Gun Owners, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and others like them get into the trenches and fight. Also, The National Association for Gun Rights has been getting results that have been quite impressive as of late. Please watch the video for more about NAGR, and donate what you can to each of the groups mentioned above.

 

Rep. Cheri Gerou (R-Evergreen) voting to restrict your gun rights Colorado

May 6, 2013
 

I’m not sure if you were able to read my message last week about Rep. Cheri Gerou (R-Evergreen) voting to restrict your gun rights and now working overtime to silence gun owners!

But you need to hear this…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7raB-X82zM&list=UUJdIbpK5kD-sQggDggzULdQ&index=1

Voting records and actions don’t lie; they reveal who people really are when (they think) no one is watching.
I hear some of the same responses nearly every time I call out a Republican on their anti-gun position:

“C’mon, you don’t say! A Republican wouldn’t actually vote with Democrats to take away our gun rights, would they?”

“She emailed me personally and told me not to listen to RMGO, she says you’re lying.”

And one of my personal favorites…
“It can’t be true; the NRA gave the legislator an A-rating.”

Of course if you’ve been following politics for any amount of time you know when it comes to defending the Second Amendment…

…liberal Republicans like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and yes, even Cheri Gerou, consistently find a way to undermine our Constitutional rights.
But you already knew that.

, I don’t need to tell you politicians are shifty or underhanded or that they don’t just come out and claim to be anti-gun to your face.

In Gerou’s case, she voted against what the Colorado media labeled as the most controversial gun control measures.

But once the cameras were off and Coloradans’ attention was directed toward other issues like immigration and education, without missing a beat, Rep. Gerou voted to restrict your Second Amendment Rights.

That’s why RMGO keeps a weathered-eye on the issues even when they don’t garner the limelight.

Here are the bills that Rep. Gerou voted for this year:

  • HB 1043-Redefine a deadly weapon: Labels any firearm loaded or unloaded as a deadly weapon. This bill takes away due process by giving DAs the upper hand in the courtroom and makes it harder for honest citizens to defend themselves by adding an automatic assumption of intent.
    (House Republican Yes Votes: Gerou, Gardner)

  • SB 195-Stricter Requirements to Obtain a CCW Permit: Citizens shouldn’t have to fight through the bureaucratic red-tape to practice their Constitutional Rights. Unfortunately, this bill makes it even harder and more restrictive for honest law-abiding citizens to obtain a CCW Permit.
    (House Republican Yes Votes: Gerou, Gardner, Conti)

  • SB 13-Gives Peace Officer Status to the Secret Service: This bill gives the same person behind the infamous Fast & Furious scandal, Eric Holder, the power to arrest and detain Colorado citizens without due process through the use of the Secret Service, which Holder is appointed power over.
    (House Republican Yes Votes: Gerou)

  • HB 1306-Creates Mental Health Task Force: This bill aims to create legislation which could give bureaucrats the ability to violate your private health records and strip away your right to bear arms through a Government controlled databases.
    (House Republican Yes Votes: Gerou)

The truth is in the public records!

In fact, out of 28 House Republicans, Gerou was only one of three House Republicans to vote for gun control. Of the nine gun control measures Gerou voted on in the House, Gerou voted for anti-gun measures four times — the most of any Republican in the entire legislature!

Normally we don’t hand out grades at RMGO, but in this case we’re going to make a special exception for Rep. Gerou:

RMGO Grade – 55%-F

To make matters worse, now “representative” Gerou has filed an “ethics” complaint against RMGO Lobbyist Joe Neville in a radical attempt to silence pro-gun supporters at the state Capitol.

Despite being the instigator and aggressor in this incident, she had the audacity to have one of our staffers “investigated” by anti-gun tribunal.

While she claims RMGO is lying about her behavior, just take a listen to her testimony about the incident in the video below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7raB-X82zM&list=UUJdIbpK5kD-sQggDggzULdQ&index=1

I don’t know about you, but to me, sounds like “representative” Gerou isn’t as pro-gun as she’d like you to believe.

You see, Gerou represents House District 25, the safest Republican seat in all of Jefferson County and also one of the largest support bases for the Second Amendment in all of Colorado.

This is why we believe Gerou is doing everything possible to block, shutdown, and firewall the public from knowing the truth about her anti-gun positions.

But those who know me know there’s nothing that infuriates me more than weak-kneed politicians playing fast and loose with our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

I will expose the records of those politicians from ANY PARTY who fail to stand up for our Second Amendment Rights, NO COMPROMISE!

I don’t work for one party or another. I work for the tens of thousands of pro-gun supporters just like you who expect me to protect and defend your right to keep and bear arms.

As the Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners that has been my promise to you and I intend to keep it.

P.S. Rep. Gerou voted for four of the nine anti-gun measures. This was the most of any Republican in the entire legislature!

Now, Gerou has filed an ethics complaint against RMGO Lobbyist Joe Neville in a radical attempt to silence pro-gun supporters at the state capitol.

Most elected officials would love nothing more…

October 12, 2012
Most elected officials would love nothing more than to take gun owners’ votes and then never hear from them again until the next election rolls around.

They think they’re MORE than capable of running our lives for us, after all. Voters like you and me just “get in the way.”

Well, I’m a State Representative who believes the opposite . . .

. . . which is why I’ve joined with Rocky Mountain Gun Owners to sponsor the Colorado Constitutional Carry Act in the upcoming Legislative Session.

I believe it’s time for you and me to send a loud and clear message to the General Assembly that the days of demanding gun owners’ votes and then doing nothing in return are OVER.

So won’t you please click here and sign the petition to your State Representative and State Senator urging them to vote and pass the Colorado Constitutional Carry Bill?

As you know, if passed, Constitutional Carry would restore the right of every law-abiding Colorado citizen to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families — WITHOUT going through a bunch of bureaucratic rigmarole!

In short, if you’re legally able to own a firearm, you’re legally able to carry it concealed for self-defense. Period.

This is the way it’s done in Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming.

And despite the hand-wringing of the gun-grabbers, the news media and government bureaucrats, those states have not seen a rise in shoot-outs and vigilante justice since passing Constitutional Carry.

I know you’re not surprised.

When law-abiding citizens are able to protect themselves, criminals soon realize they had better start looking for another line of work.

After all, attacking a “victim” armed with a concealed firearm can often result in early “retirement!”

The fact is, the gun-grabbers’ overbearing and UNCONSTITUTIONAL “regulations” and “requirements” are meant to do nothing more than undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens just like you and me.

After all, do CRIMINALS ask for government permission before they carry a concealed weapon?

Do CRIMINALS have to pay fees or take training classes?

Of course not.

But under current law in Colorado:*** Government officials can still deny you a concealed-carry permit;

All they have to do is claim they’re worried you MIGHT commit a crime in the future -– a power which will almost certainly be abused in certain areas.

*** Military veterans can be STRIPPED of the right to carry a concealed weapon;

Simply acknowledging mental stress to an anti-gun government psychologist upon returning from war could trigger the ban.

*** Colorado gun owners must pay a fee every five years, or have their “training renewed,” just to keep their permits;

Some estimates show these regulations cost law-abiding Colorado gun owners up to $3 million every year, which is why some “pro-gun” organizations (of whom many are firearms instructors) supported this provision in the past.

That’s why it’s vital you act today!

The good news is, Colorado Second Amendment supporters just like you have already proven we can create a grassroots firestorm.

Our job is to force the Legislature to pass Constitutional Carry when they come back to Denver.

No other group is fighting for the right to keep and bear arms in Colorado but Rocky Mountain Gun Owners . . .

. . . which is why I’m a member of RMGO myself.

But this fight won’t be easy.

Gun control groups are likely going to be pouring millions into Colorado to brow-beat weak-kneed politicians into DEFEATING Constitutional Carry.

You and I can’t let that happen.

That’s why clicking here and signing the petition is so important.

Over the next few months, my goal is to gather up to 100,000 petitions from Second Amendment supporters just like you so that we can FLOOD the Legislature with these petitions and show every elected official in Denver you and I mean business.

Then, using mail, email and phone banks, I plan to recruit an additional 50,000 Second Amendment supporters all across Colorado to help join in this fight.

And when the fight really begins to heat up, my hope is to run targeted newspaper and radio ads to help us get the votes to put us over the top.

Unfortunately, I’m afraid even all this won’t be enough.

If you and I want to DEFEAT the gun-grabbers’ anti-gun lobby, we must be prepared to push on every front.

None of these tactics will be cheap. So I must ask for your generous financial support, as well.

“Constitutional Carry” (SB 25) for Colorado

January 19, 2012
State Senator Tim Neville, R-Littleton, has agreed to sponsor “Constitutional Carry” (SB 25) as his first bill in the 2012 Colorado state legislative session. What happens next is up to RMGO supporters like you.

If you haven’t done so already, please sign the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners petition in support of Constitutional Carry. Then, please forward this message to friends, family, and other like-minded citizens and ask them to sign the petition as well.

With the start of the 2012 session just days away it’s absolutely vital we turn up the heat on every member of the state legislature.

As you may know, this critical legislation will ensure honest gun owners their constitutional right to carry a concealed handgun without having to fight through the expensive government red tape of the permit process.

But will your State Senator and Representative stand up for your second amendment rights? Or will they bow down to the radical anti-gun lobby?

You see, with a liberal majority in the Colorado State Senate getting this bill out of committee won’t be an easy task.

That’s why Rocky Mountain Gun Owners is unveiling an ambitious program to promote Constitutional Carry in 2012.

With nearly 20 years in the fight to preserve our right to keep and bear arms at both the state and federal level, I will be the first to tell you, I can’t do this alone.

It takes patriots like you to continue the fight to allow every honest gun owner the ability to protect him or herself at all times.

This is why I’m asking you to stand up for our Second Amendment rights and sign the RMGO Constitutional Carry Petition.

Your signature will help us in the first part of our plan to collect at least 20,000 signed petitions to deliver to your State Senators and Representatives demanding that they support the Constitutional Carry bill.

Then, in a few weeks, we will introduce our candidate pledge; demanding that each and every member of the General Assembly — and every candidate — pledge to support Constitutional Carry in Colorado.

After you’ve signed RMGO’s Constitutional Carry Petition, please forward this message to as many Second Amendment supporters as possible, and encourage them to sign the petition, too!

And if you can, please consider chipping in $15 or $20.

Your generous contribution will help us really turn up the heat — through letters, phone calls, emails and internet ads . . .

. . . And if funding permits, RMGO will launch hard-hitting newspaper, radio and TV ads urging specific elected officials, by name, to vote to pass Constitutional Carry in Colorado.

You and I both know the gun grabbers and their leftist allies in the state legislature will pull every dirty trick.

Please do not delay signing the petition, and if you can please consider chipping in $15 or $20 to help RMGO fight to pass Constitutional Carry in Colorado.

Of course, if you can and want to contribute more, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners will be careful stewards of your trust.

As always, thank you for your support in the fight to preserve our Second Amendment Rights.

Only together can we do what can’t be done alone.

For freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Director, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners
