In a move that shocked many gun rights supporters, the National Rifle Association came out vocally in support of Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs), calling them “Risk Protection Orders.”
While their use of the term “Risk Protection Orders” may not seem significant to some, it shows just how carefully the NRA had to be in making the decision to support this measure. “Gun Violence Restraining Order” has been the term popularized by anti-gun groups like the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety, which effectively do the same thing that the NRA is pushing.
GRVOs operate similarly to a temporary restraining order, which allows a court to issue a protective order in situations where a person or business needs to be temporarily protected by an individual. A GRVO would use much of the same criteria used to gain these protective orders to allow individuals to petition a court to remove guns from an individual they believe is a threat to themselves or others.
The “Risk Protection Orders” promoted by the NRA in a recent ad are nothing more than GRVOs with a different name. Even David French, the NRA’s number one cheerleader on this issue, acknowledges that fact in an article he published to the National Review.
Anti-gun groups like Everytown for Gun Safety have spent tens of millions of dollars promoting this measure, enacting legislation codifying them into law in 7 states. These states are actively using these measures to take guns from individuals.
The major issue with a GRVO is that it does not give the individual having their guns taken away the ability to challenge the ruling until the guns have already been taken away. A rogue anti-gun judge hearing a case from a vindictive family member is all it could take to have someone’s guns confiscated. A vital part of due process is having the ability to defend yourself. GRVOs remove your ability to do that.
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.
