Grassroots conservatives are pushing back against President Donald Trump after he came out in favor of gun control in the wake of last weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH.

“Trump supporters are extremely upset over @realDonaldTrump apparent support of red flag laws,” wrote Debbie Dooley, a board member for Tea Party Patriots, in a Twitter post.

“ANY Republican that supports Red Flag laws should [be] voted out of office. I won’t vote for them even @potus if he keeps pushing red flag laws,” she added.

“I see Democrat presidential candidate after Democrat presidential candidate promising to ban and confiscate guns,” Manning wrote in his organization’s newsletter, the Daily Torch.

“And I see President Donald Trump supporting state red flag laws which will lay the groundwork for them to do it,” he added.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are leading the charge in the Senate, egged on by President Trump, to create legislation that would allow an individual to have their firearms seized by law enforcement if a judge determines they are mentally disturbed. This precedent could be expanded by a Democrat in the future to encompass all conservatives.

“If the president of the United States himself is not safe from politically motivated abuse of the prosecutorial system, how can the average citizen trust that a law allowing legal, ‘temporary’ confiscation of firearms using ‘expedited due process’ won’t be abused by every risk-averse and politically motivated prosecutor in America?” Mr. Manning wrote.

“The left has sufficiently demonized anyone who supports Donald Trump that no legal ground can be ceded to give these loons of the left a lawful pathway to confiscate guns,” he added.

Regardless of the grassroots pressure, Trump seems undaunted in his push for gun control. He released the following tweet earlier today:

Trump may be jeopardizing his 2020 presidential chances with his push for gun control, as he loses his base doing the bidding of his enemies.

Texas Gun Rights Endorses Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Luther is running for the Texas Senate.

Earlier this month, pro-Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights PAC endorsed Shelley Luther in her run for Texas State Senate.

Luther gained national attention for her refusal to close down her salon in Dallas, Texas, which was in violation of Dallas, County’s lockdown order. She would end up in jail for violating the order but would later be set free after Texas Governor Greg Abbott took action to release her.

Chris McNutt, the Director of Texas Gun Rights PAC, issued a statement on Texas Gun Rights PAC’s endorsement of Luther:

It is clear Shelley Luther is the strongest pro-gun candidate running to fill the Senate District 30 seat being vacated by Pat Fallon. Texas Gun Rights PAC is proud to endorse Shelley Luther for Senate in the September 29th Special Election.

“Even before Shelley decided to run for office, she proved she had the courage to stand up and fight against an overreaching government without backing down,” McNutt added. “So it’s no surprise Shelley Luther was also the first candidate in the Senate District 30 race to take a bold, pro-gun stance.”

Constitutional Carry is one of Luther’s legislative priorities for the 2021 legislative session. This issue has been a priority for the Texas Republican Party during the last 6 years. Drew Springer, Luther’s opponent in the Senate election, never supported Constitutional Carry.

Passing Constitutional Carry legislation is part of Luther’s campaign platform and has been a top priority of the Republican Party of Texas for the past 6 years. Her opponent, State Representative Drew Springer, has never backed Constitutional Carry since he came into office back in 2012.

“State Representative Drew Springer claims to be ‘pro-gun,’ and yet he repeatedly refused to co-author Constitutional Carry every year that it was introduced,” commented McNutt. “Pro-gun Texans in Senate District 30 need a leader who is willing to fight for the Second Amendment like Shelley Luther, not another political backbencher looking for a job promotion.”

Should Constitutional Carry be passed, Texas would be the 16th state with this law.

Thanks to the political establishment’s constant legislative roadblocking, Constitutional Carry has had a considerable amount of trouble in being passed in the Lone Star State.

With politicians like Luther potentially in the mix, Constitutional Carry has a stronger chance of being passed.  America First patriots living in Texas Senate District 30 should resoundingly vote for Luther due to her firm commitment to limited government.
