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:
Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate
At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country
After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.
“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.
This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.
Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:
He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.
We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.
In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:
Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’
In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”
Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.
When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.
It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
