Why Gun Owners Should Oppose 8 Million New Anti-Gun Voters
Please read this critical message from Gun Owners of America below, and then have a look at the Immediate Action section to learn what you can do to stand up for your gun rights:
“[A] Pew poll suggests that illegal immigrants, if given citizenship, would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.” - GOA’s Erich Pratt, commenting on Pew poll findings as reported in The Washington Post (7/22/13)
Next Wednesday, the House Republican leadership will announce a set of "principles" for immigration reform. Supposedly, if these "principles" are not well-received, the House will shelve the issue for the remainder of the year.
To be blunt: The health of the Second Amendment relies on demolishing these "principles."
Immigration reform will add over 8,000,000 anti-gun voters to the voting rolls. There may be as many as 11.5 million persons illegally in the United States. And, a Pew poll from last year indicated that if illegal immigrants were given citizenship, they would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.
This is exactly what happened to California -- which was once a Red State. Because of the Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty bill of 1986, the state lurched violently to the left and now can’t pass gun control restrictions fast enough.
If this were to happen at the national level, we would lose the ability to stop massive gun bans and gun registration schemes. And all of this occurs at a time when a Fox poll shows the American people oppose Obama’s immigration policies by a margin of 36% to 54%.
The first reality is this: If the House passes ANYTHING, the Senate will tack on its amnesty bill and send it to conference. And the national conversation will turn off of ObamaCare and onto immigration.
And guess what? Every gun-hating institution which moved heaven and earth to pass gun control will move heaven and earth to get the House to retreat -- if not to a "pathway to citizenship," to a "pathway to legalization."
They will have created the biggest and most motivated Obama-loving movement in the country -- devoted to electing anti-gun politicians and retaining Harry Reid's control of the Senate.
What will Republicans get, in exchange for creating an army of pro-Obama election warriors?
Very little. (Be sure to read GOA legislative counsel Michael Hammond’s analysis, which shows, in great detail, how the Republican leadership’s “principles” will end up back-firing on gun owners.)
The bottom line is that there is a reason why Barack Obama and his "puppet press" have been campaigning for a year to force the Republican House to wade into "immigration reform." It is nothing but benefits for anti-gun politicians, and nothing but pain for pro-gun legislators.
Who would be stupid enough to inflict that level of pain on themselves?
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!
- Contact your Congressman, your Senators and the White House. Ask them to reject the ridiculous "immigration principles" being hawked by the leadership--principles that will eventually destroy the pro-gun movement in America.
