Bloomberg’s Forces Attack Gun Bill in Jeff City!

Bloomberg’s Forces Attack Gun Bill in Jeff City!

Earlier today, our bill to rid Missouri of deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ was heard in the House General Laws Committee.

If you were able to join me in Jeff City and testify in support of our right to keep and bear arms, thank you!

If you weren’t, you may not know that Michael Bloomberg’s front-groups were out in force, trying to convince the members of the committee to kill the bill!

Bloomberg is still bitter that we passed Constitutional Carry law in 2016, and has been doing whatever he can to fight back ever since.

Today’s hearing was just that, a hearing, where both sides could give their opinion. It is likely that the committee will be voting on this legislation a week from now.

And that’s why I hope you’ll send this PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to the members of the House General Laws Committee right away, urging them to reject Michael Bloomberg’s agenda by passing H.B. 258 — with no weakening amendments

(Remember, this email works if your State Representative is on the General Laws Committee. If he/she is not, you’ll have to cut and paste the email using the information below.)

I can’t stress enough how vital it is that the committee hears from you.

You see, I was there and testified on behalf of the members of the Missouri Firearms Coalition, reminding the committee of how many people have died in so-called ‘Gun Free Zones.’

But I wasn’t alone.

Bloomberg’s people were attacking the bill today.

Representatives with the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce were attacking the bill today.

Representatives with the Catholic Conference of Bishops were attacking the bill today.

Representatives with the KC utility union were attacking the bill today.

So were dozens of other entities like many community colleges, members of law enforcement, representatives from the St. Louis metro system, and more.

The excuses they offered were absolutely pathetic.

The St. Louis Chamber actually said that by allowing law abiding citizens to carry firearms in St. Louis, their cities reputation might suffer — as though being deemed the deadliest city in America year after year hasn’t already done that.

Community colleges actually said that they are opposed to the bill, because they don’t want adult women carrying firearms, firearms that could be used to stop a rape.

Rep. Schroer was incredulous, as was I.

When he asked these lobbyists if they seriously wouldn’t prefer that a would-be rape victim be able to shoot her attacker, they said that women should carry knives instead!

Incredible!

But remember, just because their arguments are ridiculous does not mean that the gun-control lobbyists will not be effective at blocking this bill.

As you’ll remember, we’ve been here multiple times in the past, and for several years this life saving bill has been locked down in the committee process — having never been sent to the floor for a full vote.

That’s why the committee needs to hear from you right away.

If the pre-written email does not work, you can always cut and paste the email, using the information provided below.

And please make a generous donation of $100, $50, or $25 to help the Missouri Firearms Coalition mobilize as many gun owners as possible by mail, email, and social media!

P.S. Earlier today, the House General Laws Committee heard testimony for and against House Bill 258, our bill to repeal deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ here in Missouri.

While I testified on behalf of the Missouri Firearms Coalition, there were dozens of well-paid lobbyists who were there to oppose your gun rights!

That’s why I hope you’ll fire off this PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to the members of the House General Laws Committee, urging them to advance this bill with no weakening amendments

And when you’re done, please make a donation to the Missouri Firearms Coalition to help us fight for you in Jeff City!

To donate, go here.


 (PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL AND CONTACT LIST BELOW)


As a supporter of the Missouri Firearms Coalition, I am contacting you to urge you to support H.B. 258 whenever it comes before the House General Laws Committee.

This legislation would rid Missouri of dozens of ‘Gun Free Zones’ where law abiding citizens are defenseless, and where criminals routinely launch mass attacks.

Missouri’s Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground laws do nothing if I’m in a place where I’m forced to disarm myself.

Before a large attack in a ‘Gun Free Zone’ happens here in Missouri, please advance H.B. 258 with no weakening amendments!

Sincerely,
