If you ever wanted to know how emboldened the gun-grabbers are about their political prospects in 2018, State Rep. Pete Merideth’s brand new bill, H.B. 1733, will floor you.
Under this legislation, Missouri’s Constitutional Carry Law — which you and I fought so hard for and ultimately passed in late 2016 — would be gone.
Stand-Your-Ground, which was also passed as part of that bill, would be toast as well.
So under this bill, if you wanted to carry a concealed firearm, it would be back to registering yourself with the Missouri State Government.
The same state government which was already caught handing over the names and addresses of permit holders to President Obama’s Justice Department TWICE!
And if you even thought about using a gun to defend yourself or a loved one while in a restaurant parking lot or some other place away from your personal residence, you’d better be able to afford a great lawyer!
If H.B. 1733 passes — if you dared to fight back against a criminal without dotting all the i’s and crossing the t’s they’re trying to put in your way — you’re all but assured to go straight to prison.
Site, if you value your Second Amendment freedoms at all, it’s absolutely vital that you and I respond IMMEDIATELY.
That’s why I’m counting on you to please sign the petition that we have prepared for you. More on that below.
As you’ll see, this petition insists that your legislators vote “NO!” on any legislation that would repeal or weaken Missouri’s Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground laws!
If we don’t, you and I could be staring straight at a gun control DISASTER.
You see, BILLIONAIRE gun-grabber Michael Bloomberg knows good and well that passage of H.B. 1733 or anything like it is a long shot right now given the majorities in Jefferson City.
But this battle isn’t about that.
The gun-grabbers believe the political winds are blowing their way.
They believe it’s a forgone conclusion they’re going to pick up seats in our State Legislature in November 2018.
So their goal is to prove to as many legislators as possible that they have nothing to fear politically from going after our gun rights.
That way, as soon as the smoke clears from the 2018 elections, they can get down to business RAMMING their entire anti-gun agenda into law.
Don’t think for a second they’ll stop with repealing Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground. Instead, they’ll pull out all the stops to ram through:
*** So-called “Universal Background Checks,” which is nothing more than code for STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION. There’s no way such a scheme can be enforced without tracking every gun and gun owner in the state!
*** A statewide so-called “Assault Weapons” ban, which would outlaw any semi-automatic rifle, shotgun or pistol with a detachable magazine and any other “scary” feature. That could include something as simple as a thumbhole stock or muzzle brake, which are common on many modern hunting rifles.
We have to respond.
We have to prove to state legislators that — regardless of which way the political winds are blowing in any given year — if they even think about attacking our second amendment freedoms, it could mean the end of their political careers.
If we don’t, I truly fear for the future of our gun rights in Missouri.
After all, in a “red” state like Missouri, those who aspire to run for political office understand that the only way to get elected is to mouth support for gun rights.
Sadly, many (if not most) don’t mean it. Many are just waiting for the perfect time to come after our gun rights.
We have to prove to them that if they ever try that, it will be met with massive outrage from gun owners!
With your action, we can send a message to anti-gun politicians in BOTH parties that they’ll pay a severe price this election year if they even think about going after our gun rights.
Remember, politicians care more about their elections and reelections than just about anything else.
So sending this message will resonate in the halls of our State Legislature. I guarantee it. But we must act now.
And if possible, I hope I can count on your most generous contribution to help us plaster Missouri with hard-hitting mail and emails to ensure Second Amendment supporters truly understand the stakes.
The gun-grabbers are counting on Second Amendment supporters to sit back and do nothing.
They’re counting on us to look at the Republican majorities in Jefferson City and think, “nothing bad could happen.”
That’s the WORST possible thing we could do right now.
Your contribution will help the Missouri Firearms Coalition launch a massive four-part plan to answer the gun-grabbers, including:
1) Generating 100,000 petitions from all over Missouri insisting the State Legislature STOP this repeal bill;
2) Using email, social media and Internet ads to mobilize an additional 50,000 Missourians;
3) Working the blogs and granting media interviews to explain exactly why Second Amendment supporters cannot allow this attack to stand;
4) Paying for hard-hitting radio, newspaper and even TV ads if they prove necessary.
And remember, the more gun owners we can mobilize, the better our chance is to create a tidal wave of support — not just against repealing Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground — but also to finally END Gun Free Zones!
And if you can, please agree to your most generous contribution of $100 right away.
I know that is asking a lot. But please understand how serious this is.
We cannot allow this attack on our Second Amendment freedoms to go unanswered.

P.S. Gun-grabbers have just introduced H.B. 1733 to REPEAL Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground.
Their goal is to prove to as many legislators as possible that they have nothing to fear politically from going after our gun rights.
We can’t let them get away with it.
