Published

Gun control has been snuck into the Texas state budget.

According to a new campaign on Texas Gun Right’s website, “Gun control funding was added to the state budget and is on its way to the Governor’s desk for his signature.”

Specifically, gun control funding was added to promote a firearms storage program.

The gun rights group highlighted that “Firearms safety is of the utmost importance.”

However, in TXGR’s view, the gun control lobby has gone too far by pushing this backdoor gun control provision “under the guise of firearms “safety.”

Chris McNutt, Executive Director of TXGR, argues that House Speaker Dennis Bonnen got anti-gun Democrat votes by slipping a “$1 million spending spree for the promotion of “safe” gun storage in the states’ massive 950 page budget bill (HB 1).”

TXGR pointed out that research from Dr. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center demonstrates that firearm storage mandates “effectively disarm citizens in a time of urgency.”

In his study in the Journal of Law and Economics, Lott shows that there were “300 more total murders and 4,000 more rapes occurring each year in the states that mandated firearms storage.”

2019 has been a disappointing year for Second Amendment activists in the Lone Star State. Now they must fend off background gun control schemes as the session comes to a close. After that, they must prepare for the 2020 elections and the next legislative session in 2021.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

on

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
