BILLIONAIRE anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg must be grinning from ear to ear . . .
Even after passing Missouri’s “Gun Free Zone” Repeal Bill (H.B. 1936) through both the House Rules and General Laws Committees, “pro-Second Amendment” legislative leaders appear scared of their own shadows.
Whether it’s out of fear of the changing political winds and the newly energized anti-gun Left — or the fallout from Governor Eric Greitens past sexcapades — House GOP leaders are stonewalling on bringing H.B. 1936 to the floor for a full vote.
Gun-grabbers — watching their supposed enemies try to kill this critical pro-gun reform quietly without so much as a public floor vote — can hardly believe their luck!
That’s why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.
Will you please sign and submit your petition, urging immediate legislative action on the part of House leadership right away? More on that below.
You see, it’s essential that House Speaker Todd Richardson (R), Speaker Pro-Tem Elijah Haahr (R) and Majority Leader Rob Vescovo (R) schedule an immediate floor vote on H.B. 1936 right away.
Without your action, I truly fear for the worst . . .
After all, the one way to guarantee disaster at the polls this November is for our supposed “pro-Second Amendment” friends to prove they’re just too scared to lead.
So your action is critical to stiffen their spines and FORCE them to take action on “Gun Free Zone” repeal — the ONLY way we can ensure Missouri’s future immunity from the mass shootings we’ve seen in other states.
As you and I both know, no “Gun Free Zone” sticker on a door ever stopped anyone hell-bent on committing murder.
Instead, “Gun Free Zones” only work as bait for sickos.
The killers know they’ll run into absolutely no one who is armed.
So they’re free to shoot human fish in a barrel until they run out of ammo or until someone from outside with a gun and a little guts bothers to show up.
If passed, the Missouri “Gun Free Zone” Repeal Bill would take every one of the following areas state law automatically declares a “gun free zone” off the books, including:
As a physician, I can tell you that gang violence routinely spills over into hospitals as criminals look to ensure those who might talk to police are “taken care of” before they’re able to talk;
Sadly, we’ve already seen in Sutherland Springs, Texas and Charleston, South Carolina what happens when evil people target innocents who are unarmed. With our culture’s growing hatred for traditional values, I can’t say I think attacks on churches will let up;
*** Many restaurants.
Consider how vulnerable waitresses who are leaving work late at night are, just walking to their cars with pockets full of tip money! Why should our state government stand in the way of them protecting themselves?
*** Day cares.
Just as we’ve seen in schools, day cares have also been targets for those seeking to make news headlines through murder;
*** Polling places and local government meetings.
Local government officials are allowed to carry to protect themselves. Isn’t your life worth just as much?
It would also mandate that K-12 schools provide a legal method for someone on the premises to carry through an enhanced permit — whether that’s teachers, school administrators or security officers.
Just as we’ve seen with Columbine, Newtown, and Parkland, our kids are often the most vulnerable to blood-crazed lunatics.
So isn’t it time a gunman was forced to think twice before targeting a school for a shooting spree?
I certainly think so.
And the good news is, if we can pass H.B. 1936, Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun pals will likely realize Missouri is a lost cause.
And you and I can send them packing!
But even just forcing a vote puts you and me in a win/win situation.
Those politicians in BOTH parties who vote against H.B. 1936 will be exposed for all to see as anti-gun.
And they could pay a severe price at the ballot box this fall.
But I’m afraid none of this will happen with House GOP leaders dragging their feet –- UNLESS you and I roar to action today.
And in addition to signing your petition, please agree to a generous contribution to help me launch:
>>> A massive statewide mail and email program designed to generate pressure on politicians;
>>> A statewide media tour where the Missouri Firearms Coalition will work talk radio and local TV explaining why we must end so-called “Gun Free Zones;”
>>> A state-of-the-art Internet and social media campaign exposing any politician who dares to stand in our way;
>>> Hard-hitting Internet, radio and newspaper ads calling out politicians who’d rather keep Missouri safe for criminals.
I know that’s a lot to ask for.
But we can’t let gun-grabbers or week-kneed politicians in EITHER party derail “Gun Free Zone” Repeal.
Let’s end “Gun Free Zones” in Missouri before it’s too late.
