I, the signatory of this petition, do hereby affirm that:

 

  • Whereas, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Sen. Charles Schumer, Representative Elizabeth Esty and others are exploiting national tragedies to promote a pre-ordained agenda to end the private ownership of firearms;
     
  • Whereas, gun control advocates continue to camouflage gun control behind benign-sounding motives such as banning so-called "bump stocks" when, in truth the language being debated would ban optical sights, trigger jobs, muzzle compensators and other devices commonly used by competitive shooters and others;
     
  • Whereas, the intent of gun control organizations to use a so-called "bump stock" ban as a springboard for additional gun control was openly expressed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, when she said: "They’re going to say, ‘You give them bump stock, it's going to be a slippery slope.’ I certainly hope so";
     
  • Whereas, present gun control measures such as the National Instant Background Check System failed three times in recent weeks to prevent mass homicide 

  • Whereas, none of the gun control measures being proposed, including so-called "Universal Background Checks" would have prevented recent shootings being highlighted by the media;
     
  • Whereas, since 1950 all but three mass homicides have occurred in supposedly "gun free" victim disarmament zones where violent predators know they can kill with impunity;
     
  • Whereas, a survey of 15,000 law enforcement officers by law enforcement advocacy group PoliceOne found that 86% of officers believe arming citizens could have reduced or altogether eliminated innocent casualties in mass homicides; and 
     
  • Whereas, as intended by the Framers and affirmed by the United States Supreme Court in Heller v. D.C. and McDonald v. Chicago, the Second Amendment reinforces an individual right to keep and bear arms;

 

I hereby demand that members of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate use all means, procedural or substantive, to defeat any legislation introduced or amended to curtail, restrict or qualify private ownership of firearms, and to oppose any executive order issued to that end. I will accept no compromise on this issue, and call upon elected representatives to work toward eliminating so-called "gun free" zones to deter violent predators and allow citizens to better protect themselves and their families.
