You know what happened nationally. The political A-bomb set off by the American people on November 8 is still being felt all over the country . . .
The elitist, sneering national press we saw in the lead up to the November election is no longer even trying to hide their hatred for the grassroots patriots who proved they’re the new power-brokers in American politics.
Curt, November 8 wasn’t about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Republicans, Democrats, pollsters, political insiders or even the national press.
It was about YOU.
Now, it’s time to build on the successes we saw in 2016 with passage of Constitutional Carry, and Second Amendment supporters’ triumph at the ballot box.
I’m counting on you once again to make it happen.
Will you please renew your membership in the Missouri Firearms Coalition for 2017 right away? More on that below.
After all, the moment we stop fighting to secure Missouri’s rightful place as a Second Amendment leader is the moment gun-grabbers like BILLIONAIRE anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg will think Missouri is ripe for a takeover.
Truth be told, we still have plenty to fight for in order to secure Missouri’s place as a Second Amendment leader — even after you and I shocked the world by overriding Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground last year.
After passage of Constitutional Carry, many localities are marking off more and more areas as so-called “gun free zones.”
After the results of November 2016, the gun-grabbers may very well turn more of their attention to these local assaults.
As we’ve seen from bloodbath after bloodbath over the past two decades, these schemes have absolutely NOTHING to do with keeping citizens safe from violence.
Instead, “gun free zones” are bait for sickos. They just ensure killers never have to worry about running into someone who is armed.
The gun-grabbers know all of that. But they don’t care.
Instead, their goal is to create a giant patchwork quilt of areas across Missouri where law-abiding gun owners are effectively BANNED from carrying a firearm to protect themselves and their families.
Under this scheme, their goal is to frighten gun owners into leaving their guns at home for fear of inadvertently breaking some local law.
With Bloomberg’s deep pockets, overturning even the most blatantly illegal local infringements could cost millions. And sadly, state law plays right into their hands.
Under state law, well over a dozen public and private entities — like churches, polling places, schools, hospitals, daycares and many restaurants — have already been established as entities where a killer never has to worry about running into a legally armed citizen.
ALL local government meetings are “gun free zones” too – but of course that ban doesn’t apply to government officials…they can legally carry to defend themselves if they want.
Well, isn’t your life just as valuable as that of a government official?
Don’t our kids in day cares and schools across the state deserve better than for state law to leave our kids as waiting victims for the next madman?
In a day and age with ISIS-inspired terrorist cells lurking everywhere — and new Islamic refugees pouring in by the millions — isn’t it reasonable that someone attending a Sunday morning service at their local Christian church may want to be armed?
And with racial tensions running so high over the past two years, isn’t it reasonable that someone might want to protect themselves when they go vote — especially if they live in a place that’s considered too “pro-cop” or otherwise unacceptable to our national media?
Studies prove that guns help deter crime. They make us safer.
So it’s time for our State Legislature to take a stand against the so-called “gun free zones” BEFORE Michael Bloomberg and his slick pals end up spreading them all over the state.
But sadly, that’s not all we have to worry about.
Some of the allies I see surrounding President-elect Donald Trump — like Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie — make my skin crawl.
Often, anti-gun Republicans like this are worse than any anti-gun Democrat — as some in the grassroots are quick to give them a “free pass” while they use the power of the federal government to secretly catalogue, track and trace gun owners.
Just a few weeks before the election, news broke that Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) was encouraging local law enforcement to scan the license plates of those who attend gun shows!
We have to watch closely to see if this kind of madness is ended — or continued even without Donald Trump’s direct knowledge — by new cabinet officials.
And we must never hand our “friends” powers that our future enemies would be sure to abuse.
And after unloading the Missouri Firearms Coalition’s bank accounts fighting Bloomberg in 2016 while passing Constitutional Carry, I can’t tell you how important your renewed membership is.
You and I had a big year. No matter how they may try, gun-grabbers cannot deny that.
It started with passage of Constitutional Carry. So if you’re legally allowed to own a firearm, you’ll be legally allowed to carry it starting on January 1. PERIOD.
But our success didn’t end there.
On November 8, Missouri elected pro-gun Republican Governor Eric Grietens and re-elected a pro-Second Amendment super majority in Jefferson City — even with the anti-gun media predicting doom for pro-gun legislators who passed Constitutional Carry.
The truth is, every Missouri Firearms Coalition member played a big role in every one of these victories.
Unlike the gun-grabbers with their NYC billionaire pal Michael Bloomberg funding them, we’re not bankrolled by deep-pocketed gazillionaires looking to play politics as a hobby.
The Missouri Firearms Coalition is controlled and funded by patriots just like you. So you are a critical part of this winning team.
There are a lot of people in politics who like to puff out their chests and tell you how important they are without being able to point to a single real accomplishment.
Curt, I’m fighting every day to ensure the Missouri Firearms Coalition continues to deliver real results with the support I know you sacrificially give.
You can choose to renew your membership with any amount you’d like.
I know that’s a lot to ask for. But we have some serious work to do. Not only that, but you’ve seen your generosity really make a difference.
As Thomas Jefferson stated, “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” That means you and I have a job to do.
So please renew your membership in the Missouri Firearms Coalition with your most generous contribution of $125, $75 or at least $35 right away.
Dr. Curt Frazier
Chairman of the Board
P.S. There are many critical battles brewing in 2017 — not the least of which are stopping the spread of so-called “Gun Free Zones.”
You and I have to keep up the fight. The battle for the very soul of our country continues to rage on.
Thank you, in advance, for standing with us in 2017!
