No compromise Second Amendment organization Texas Gun Rights was recently being threatened with legal action by candidate Justin Berry of Texas House District 47.
BLP reached out to National Association for Gun Right’s Deputy Field Director of Field Operations Chris McNutt for more insights. NAGR is the parent organization of TXGR.
McNutt provided BLP with several key points on the matter.
The pro-gun organization was running a standard issue discussion campaign but ran into trouble when McNutt pulled a number from Berry’s publicly available campaign finance report, which was his cell phone.
Berry is active law enforcement and tried to assert that Texas Gun Rights’ activism is illegal under Texas CCP 36.06.
Berry alleged that McNutt was “doxing” him, after he originally refused to return the Texas Gun Rights Candidate Survey and go on the record against radical gun control. At the time, TXGR send out a letter to voters in Berry’s district encouraging them to get Berry to return his survey.
He originally threatened legal action against McNutt. The pro-gun activist told BLP that “Berry is using his status as a law enforcement officer to try and suppress the First Amendment.
Berry’s legal notice read as follows:
Per Texas CCP 36.06 this is your written notice to remove my personal cell phone and/ or address from any and all digital and written publications within 48 hours as of 1pm on June 20, 2020. I am a police officer and you have published my personal identifying information which can pose a danger to myself and/ or my family. I am requesting you to cease and remove all my personal information as required by law under Texas CCP 36.06.
However, Texas Gun Rights’ legal counsel David Warrington said that Berry had no legal standing.
McNutt told BLP that Berry “made a stink about it all over social media too, accusing me of working for his opponent, doxing him, putting he and his family at harm, being salacious, felonious, and committing a criminal act. All of which are lies, as the attached letter from my attorney lays out.”
It seems Berry is getting desperate in the final weeks of his campaign. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to get Abbott involved since he recently received his endorsement. And I’m not surprised Abbott endorsed him, because he likely doesn’t want any additional legislators pushing back against him if he ramps back up his “Gun Control Roadshow.” Lest we also forget about Abbott’s past tacit support for “Red Flag” laws in 2018.
TXGR PAC is now endorsing his opponent, Jennifer Fleck, who returned her candidate survey 100% pro-gun.
In the end, Berry has apparently backed down from his threats after TXGR responded with a letter in which they vowed to defend McNutt from any potential legal threats coming from Berry.
Nevertheless, this case demonstrates the importance of holding your ground when confronting candidates who are ready to abuse their power.
BLP has attached some of the materials (Legal notices and issue discussion letter) for readers to take a look at below:
GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor
On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”
Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”
Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.
Robinson’s valiant defense of the Second Amendment in this instance turned him into a national icon and is likely going to propel him to victory in the 2020 General Election.
