With the undeniable success that the Missouri Firearms Coalition has had in passing Constitutional Carry and Stand-Your-Ground law in 2016, not to mention blocking all gun control bills this year — to say that we have political enemies is an understatement.
Of course, any gun rights organization that does not have political enemies clearly is not doing their job right!
But with the general election just a few months away, I need to make sure you are aware of the growing threat to MOFC — and to ask you for your input.
The thought of being shut down, or being forced to spend precious donor dollars defending against a bogus charge, infuriates me.
But with gun rights groups like MOFC being targeted all over the country, this is a threat that we need to take seriously.
Please read the email below, and then give me your immediate feedback!
Dear Site, September 5, 2018
Any day now, I expect a loud knock at my door.
A slick anti-gun government lawyer — armed with trumped-up legal complaints from Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control organizations — will be grinning from ear-to-ear as he tells me, “SEE YOU IN COURT!”
When I first launched the Missouri Firearms Coalition, I thought things like this didn’t happen in America.
But today, with the critical November elections rapidly approaching, I fear a well-timed frivolous legal assault could derail our election year programs before they’re fully able to get off the ground!
Sadly, it doesn’t matter that the Missouri Firearms Coalition plays by the rules.
It doesn’t matter that we don’t break laws (or even bend them) like so many other organizations.
More often than not, groups like ours are attacked for just being effective!
With the November elections right around the corner, the gun-grabbers are going to use EVERY tool at their disposal — including legal attacks — to try and DESTROY our 2018 election year programs.
That’s why, as you’ll see, I’ve prepared a brief three-question Missouri Firearms Coalition Member Ballot for your review.
The truth is, I simply must have your advice right away.
As it stands right now, I do not have the funds to fight back against the gun-grabbers’ legal SMEARS — and run a full election year program — at the same time.
So the Missouri Firearms Coalition will be a sitting duck unless I can fix this problem — FAST.
Sadly, this is par for the course for many pro-Second Amendment organizations.
In fact, just last year, our sister organization in Iowa was hit with 47 pages of baseless charges by the Iowa General Assembly!
It was punishment for the Pro-Gun Omnibus Bill they forced into law (which included Stand-Your-Ground.)
Thankfully, our sister organization, Iowa Gun Owners, won that case.
But it cost thousands in legal fees they would have much rather spent defending their Second Amendment freedoms.
Every few months, I hear a new story like this. I know it’s only a matter of time until the Missouri Firearms Coalition is targeted.
After derailing our “Gun Free Zone” Repeal Bill after passage though multiple committees, Bloomberg-backed anti-gun activists believe they’ll have the momentum in November.
So it’s never been more important that you and I fight back with the biggest Candidate Survey program we’ve ever conducted.
But I’m afraid a well-timed legal threat could end up shutting our election year programs down!
Sadly, this kind of nonsense just goes with the territory.
And worse, it’s all designed to get good folks like you and me to stop “bothering” our “poor politicians.”
That way they can whittle away at our most cherished freedoms without ever having to worry about answering to the voters back home!
I’ve never, ever believed that’s the way politics should work — not for a second. I still believe politicians work for us, not the other way around. That’s why I started the Missouri Firearms Coalition in the first place.
Without organizations like the Missouri Firearms Coalition out there to call politicians to the carpet for their records, I shudder to think how many MORE of our freedoms would have already been tossed by the wayside.
That’s why they want to shut us up so badly ahead of November 2018.
The gun-grabbers know that the moment politicians stop fearing backlash from the folks back home during election years, they’ll be free to go on a rampage attacking our Second Amendment freedoms.
Believing the media line that the political winds will be blowing their way this election year, they’re going all-out to gain seats in BOTH houses of the Missouri General Assembly.
Should they succeed in gaining legislative ground, you and I will have our hands full stopping the gun-grabbers’ radical agenda for Missouri, including:
*** STAND-YOUR-GROUND AND CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY REPEAL. Gun-grabbers are still stinging from the defeat you and I handed them in 2016, and are going all-out to repeal both Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry.
*** STATEWIDE GUN REGISTRATION UNDER THE GUISE OF UNIVERSAL “BACKGROUND CHECKS.” The only way such a scheme can be enforced is if the government keeps records of every gun and gun owner. And as you and I know, registration is just the first step toward CONFISCATION;
*** A STATEWIDE SO-CALLED “ASSAULT WEAPONS” BAN. It’s already been widely discussed among the gun grabbers here in Missouri. Should anti gun Democrats pick up seats in the General Assembly, it won’t be long until they go all out to ban guns they call “assault weapons” — starting with semi automatic rifles, shotguns and even handguns.
That’s why our 2018 election year program has never been more important.
In fact, until just a few days ago, my hope was to run the biggest program in the Missouri Firearms Coalition’s history leading up to the November elections — using mail, email, Internet ads, and even hard-hitting newspaper, radio and TV ads if I could raise the money to pay for them.
But I’m afraid, as it stands right now, I won’t be able to fund both a full-scale legal defense AND this election year effort.
I know we’ve done nothing wrong. But I can’t imagine just sitting back and hoping I don’t run into an anti-gun judge or prosecutor in the courtroom.
I have to prepare for the worst — or else, I could be a sitting duck. So I need you to tell me what to do:
OPTION #1: Should I ignore the legal threats, hope nothing bad happens, and go all-in with a full-scale election year program?
OPTION #2: Should I just give in to the gun-grabbers, cut off all of the Missouri Firearms Coalition’s election year programs and put all my focus into these frivolous legal threats? But if I choose this option, I know I’ll just be emboldening them to try it again and again in the future.
I know what I want to do. But I don’t have millions of dollars sitting around in the bank like BILLIONAIRE Michael Bloomberg and his pals.
The Missouri Firearms Coalition is run on a shoestring budget.
OPTION #3 just really isn’t an “option” without a massive and IMMEDIATE influx of funds from the Missouri Firearms Coalition’s members and supporters.
I know that’s far more than you’ve given in the past. But the stakes couldn’t be higher.
With the November elections right around the corner and critical races heating up, I need to hear from you right away.
Please answer your Missouri Firearms Coalition Member Ballot above, and send it back in to me IMMEDIATELY.
Dr. Curt Frazier
P.S. Any day now, I expect the Missouri Firearms Coalition to come under legal attack!
I have some very critical decisions to make in the matter of just a couple of weeks, and I need to hear from you right away.
