After a two-year battle to save our gun rights from the relentless attacks of Joe Biden and the Radical Left, gun owners across America were hoping for a ‘Red Wave’ on Election Night.
In fact, many of us expected it. I know I did.
But as we all know, that’s not what happened in Washington.
The good news is that, as of this moment, gun owners appear to have kicked Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in the House out of power…a ‘revenge vote’ for their attempt to disarm us through an onslaught of tyrannical gun control bills.
In the Senate, however, the results were not so good.
As I write this, it’s too soon to know which party will control the Senate for the next two years. Georgia is headed to a run-off and recounts are a possibility in Nevada and Arizona.
While there is still a chance that the Republicans could recapture the Senate, it’s very likely that Chuck Schumer will keep control of the chamber with a 50-50 “tie” — or even increase the size of his majority to a commanding 51-49.
Any way you look at it, at the federal level, this wasn’t a ‘Red Wave’ election that will end the threat to our gun rights in Congress. With an emboldened White House maintaining control of the United States Senate, you and I are in for a fight.
That’s why I hope that you will immediately renew your membership in the Missouri Firearms Coalition for 2023, so that we can defend your gun rights in D.C. and expand them here in Missouri!
You see, while gun owners didn’t experience a ‘Red Wave’ in Washington, D.C., we damn sure caused one here in Missouri, where pro-gun candidates DESTROYED leftist gun-grabbers!
Thanks to mobilized gun owners, the State Senate maintained a Super Majority despite massive spending from the Radical Left. And while the gun-grabbers picked up four seats in the House, gun voters ensured the House still has a Super Majority as well!
Eric Burlison — the sponsor of every gun bill that we’ve passed into law in Jefferson City from Constitutional Carry to the Second Amendment Preservation Act — was elected to Congress with a stunning 71% of the vote.
Of course, the most watched race of the night was the U.S. Senate race between Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Trudy Busch Valentine.
Eric Schmitt has been a warrior for gun owners in the State Senate and as the Attorney General, leading the fight to defend SAPA law from the Department of Justice.
Trudy Busch Valentine supported the entire gun control agenda in Washington, D.C. and openly called for a ban on our AR-15s, a national gun owner registry, and ‘Red Flag’ laws.
Gun owners in Missouri didn’t take too kindly to the tyranny that Valentine was pushing…so they ENDED her would be political career, electing Schmitt with hundreds of thousands of votes to spare! It was a massive victory!
More specifically, this was YOUR victory.
You see, every piece of our election program — every radio ad, every text message, every digital ad — was paid for by the members of the Missouri Firearms Coalition. And for that, I can’t thank you enough.
But if there’s one thing that we’ve learned from the Democrats over the years, it’s to never let your foot off the gas in the majority, especially when you have the momentum!
And that’s why I hope you’ll renew your membership in the Missouri Firearms Coalition, because we’re going to hit the ground running with an ambitious agenda in Jeff City in 2023!
First, we are going to be pushing legislation that would prevent Missouri from accepting federal money to enforce any form of ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation.
Gun owners are well aware of the danger of these ‘Red Flag’ laws, as they would allow your firearms to be seized by a court order before you’ve even been convicted of a crime!
But earlier this year, Joe Biden signed a massive gun control bill into law (a bill that Roy Blunt voted for) that gave the DOJ $750,000,000 to dole out to ‘red’ states that pass ‘Red Flag’ laws — making this a far more dangerous threat.
Our legislation would ban the use of federal money to enforce any form of ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ laws.
Second, we will be redoubling our efforts to advance our legislation that would increase the protections offered to Missourians under our current Stand-Your-Ground law.
While we passed a version of Stand-Your-Ground in 2016, our current laws still require us to prove that our actions were innocent following a self-defense shooting.
Dozens of other states have reversed that, giving the assumption of innocence to gun owners following a use of force, and requiring the state to prove their guilt in court.
RINOs and Democrats blocked this legislation last session, but after the message that gun owners sent during the primary and general elections here in Missouri, now is the time to press ahead with this. And we can’t wait to do it!
Finally, the Missouri Firearms Coalition will be doing whatever it takes to protect our Second Amendment Preservation Act law from an onslaught of legislative and legal attacks.
Flipping the House in Washington doesn’t change the fact that Joe Biden can continue to attack our gun rights through Executive Orders and administrative decrees.
On the contrary, these attacks are going to increase!
Here in Missouri, thanks to our SAPA law, we’re largely protected from this because SAPA instructs Missouri cops to enforce Missouri’s gun laws — preventing Biden from using them to enforce his tyrannical gun control agenda.
The DOJ hates SAPA law and that’s why they’ve been trying to convince a judge to overturn SAPA law for the last 14 months. If they are successful, they’ll be able to attack gun ownersusing our own police officers against us.
MOFC absolutely MUST hold the line on our SAPA law!
But the fact is that despite our massive majorities in Jeff City, passing bills of this size is going to be a big task.
The Missouri Firearms Coalition is going to have to do what we do best; mobilize our army of gun owners using direct mail, internet and digital ads, and our powerful email program to inundate the Capitol with grassroots pressure from gun owners!
But running these programs — at the size we’ll need to run them — isn’t cheap. And after the massive amount we just spent on our wildly successful 2022 election program, we simply don’t have the funds we need to do all of this.
That’s why I hope that you will renew your membership in the Missouri Firearms Coalition immediately, so that we have the ammo we need to keep fighting for you in 2023!
The amount of your renewal is up to you. But we have a tremendous opportunity to advance the Second Amendment in Jefferson City this year.
I know that’s asking a lot, but the stakes are high and we MUST seize this opportunity.
(Any MOFC member who renews for $75 or higher will receive a newly redesigned T-Shirt absolutely free as our way of saying ‘thank you’ for your continued support.)
The amount of your membership renewal is up to you, but with everything that we’re facing in 2023, please act fast!
Missouri Firearms Coalition
P.S. While we didn’t see a ‘Red Wave’ in D.C. on election night, gun owners appear to have reclaimed the House, firing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker! At the same time, gun owners here in Missouri crushed gun-grabbers up and down the ballot!
This is the momentum that the Missouri Firearms Coalition needs to advance a massive package of pro-gun bills in Jeff City during the upcoming legislative session!
But we need your help to mobilize gun owners. Please renew your membership for 2023 with a generous donation of $125, $75, or at least $35 right away!
Remember, all renewals of $75 or higher come with a FREE MOFC T-Shirt so please be generous!
