Have you heard the news?

Dear Fellow Patriot,

Have you heard the news?

NAGR’s new legislation restoring your gun rights has been introduced in Congress.

Brought by gun rights champions, U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Congressman Steve King (R-IA), it’s called the “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act” or “SHUSH Act”(S.1505 and H.R.3139), and ends the foolish Federal control on sound suppressors.

Thanks to your work, we’ve repealed both the Social Security Gun Ban and the Lead Ammo Ban.

We’re also making strong progress against the Veterans Gun Ban.

Now it’s time to move forward to repeal some of America’s long-standing restrictions on the Second Amendment.

The first step is to remove ALL unconstitutional restrictions on suppressors.

NAGR’s SHUSH Act recognizes one simple truth: suppressors are nothing more than accessories. They are no different than a magazine or a scope, and should be treated as such.

Currently, suppressors are heavily regulated -- just like machine guns and grenades -- under the 1934 National Firearms Act.

And unfortunately, previous legislation to fix this problem didn’t actually get the job done completely.

Until NAGR’s King/Lee bill, the Hearing Protection Act still treated suppressors like long guns, requiring a background check (registration).

This sets a very dangerous precedent for restrictions on accessories, and would almost certainly lead to a new push for federal restrictions on magazines, gun stocks, optics, ammo, etc.

That’s why the National Association for Gun Rights asked Sen. Lee and Rep. King to introduce the SHUSH Act.

Under this legislation, buying a suppressor would be like buying a magazine or scope.

No expensive tax stamp, no 9-month wait, no registration.

Just pure freedom.

That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your petition in support of the “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act.”

These petitions are part of the National Association for Gun Rights’ massive nationwide effort to turn up the heat on Congress.

As you’ll see below, this program won’t be cheap, so I’m also hoping you can dig deep and make your most generous contribution after signing.

Already under way, our cutting edge plan consists of:

1) Using mail and email to contact up to 12 million Americans from all over the country to alert them to the gun grabbers’ new economic war on guns;

2) Launching a massive state-of-the-art Internet and Social Media campaign designed to mobilize millions of Americans to sign petitions urging passage of the SHUSH Act;

3) Writing op-eds, working national media, working highly-trafficked blogs and doing talk-radio shows to explain to Second Amendment supporters why passage of the SHUSH Act is a no-brainer.

Currently, any hunter who wants to add a suppressor to his or her hunting rifle is forced to pay a $200 tax, get fingerprinted like a common criminal and wait nine months just to get approval!

Not only that, but they have to register the suppressor with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)!

And gun grabbers like Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) are spewing their anti-gun lies that suppressors “are used to commit crimes” without being able to point to a single statistic to prove this claim.

In fact, the use of suppressors by armed thugs is virtually ZERO because they’re not cheap and they add bulk to your firearm.

Thankfully, Sen. Lee and Rep. King are fighting to fully legalize suppressors for ALL law-abiding Americans in order to protect hearing, reduce noise complaints, and allow for a more accurate shot by reducing recoil and muzzle blast!

Most importantly, this is the next MAJOR step in rolling back federal restrictions on the Second Amendment.

That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your petition in support of the “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act.”

And after signing, please consider making your most generous contribution of $50.

I know I’m asking for a lot, but this program won’t be cheap.

The SHUSH Act will likely be the biggest pro-gun advancement at the Federal level in many years.

We’ve made great strides this year, repealing Obama’s Social Security and Lead Ammo Bans, along with passing Constitutional Carry in 4 states.

That’s why I’m confident that if we stand together we can pass the SHUSH Act.

Legalizing suppressors will send a very loud and clear message to Washington D.C. that Second Amendment supporters are not going away, and that we will not be done until every single infringement on our God-given right to keep and bear arms is reversed.

That’s why I’m asking for $50.

But I understand that might be too much for you at this time, and if it is, please at least consider giving $25 or $25 after signing.

The SHUSH Act is the farthest reaching of the bills currently on the docket relating to suppressors.

Their bill is the only one that completely removes suppressors from government control, and treats them like the accessory that they are.

Similar bills treat suppressors like rifles.

That’s right. The same hoops you have to go through to get a rifle would be in place for suppressors under the old Hearing Protection Act (Which NAGR also supports).

While a laudable step in the right direction, these bills originated during the Obama years.

But with pro-gun Republican control of the House, Senate, and the White House we can and should fight for much more!

If we codify into law that suppressors should be treated like firearms, it sets a dangerous precedent if gun grabbers win back the White House.

Just imagine if someone like Elizabeth Warren becomes President in 2020 or 2024 and says: “Hey, gun rights supporters passed legislation regulating suppressors like firearms. Time to do the same for other firearms accessories.”

They would have the legal precedent to serialize and register every magazine or scope in America!

Imagine paying $400 for your next 15-round magazine!

But under the SHUSH Act this would not be the case. Suppressors would be treated like ANY other firearm accessory.

Because that’s exactly what they are. An accessory which promotes hunting and range safety!

And your National Association for Gun Rights is proud to work alongside pro-gun heroes Senator Lee and Representative King in this fight.

Unfortunately, too many anti-gun lawmakers want to continue to spew Sen. Murphy’s lies and water down this landmark pro-gun legislation.

Gun grabbers in Congress -- who can’t stand the concept of freedom -- are wetting their pants over the thought of American citizens being able to readily own simple accessories to make firearms safer and more enjoyable!

That’s why it’s imperative you sign your “Silencers Helping Us Save Hearing Act” petition in support of this pro-gun legislation.

Your petition will urge your Members of Congress to cosponsor and vote to pass the SHUSH Act today.

This should be a no-brainer.

After all, if you’re one of the millions of Americans who hunt, target shoot -- or just like to test your skill at the gun range occasionally -- you know how seriously you have to take hearing protection when shooting a firearm.

And the good news is, with your action today, I’m confident the Lee/King SHUSH Act (S.1505 and H.R.3139) can pass.

With the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., voicing his AND his father’s full support for full deregulation of suppressors, the SHUSH Act has a strong chance.

And with the help of liberty-loving patriots like you, we’re prepared to fight like never before to ensure that other lawmakers in Congress get on board.

But this vote is likely to come down to the wire -- especially in the U.S. Senate.

And without grassroots support it may simply get watered down or killed.

And if it gets to the floor, just a handful of votes could decide it.

If you want Americans to be able to quiet their firearms, it’s up to us to make our voices LOUD.

Here’s how you can help:

*** Thank Senator Mike Lee and Congressman Steve King.

With so much media pressure in Washington on more gun control, it’s about time we had more lawmakers like Sen. Lee fight for pro-gun reforms.

Thank them for taking this pro-gun stand.

*** Please click here to sign your “SHUSH Act” petition in support of Sen. Mike Lee’s landmark pro-gun reform.

Your petition will urge your Members of Congress to support the SHUSH Act today.

Finally, if you agree that Congress should pass the SHUSH Act please also consider making your most generous contribution of $50, $25, or $25 after signing.

If I can raise the resources, my plan is to light a fire under EVERY Senator and Congressman who claims to be pro-gun. And to overcome every gun grabber who dares oppose it.

Your donations and support allow us to continue to keep you informed and to fight for pro-gun legislation like Sen. Lee’s and Rep. King’s pro-gun bill.

Fellow Patriot, with time running out before the impending summer recess, I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.

Dear Fellow Patriot,

So far this year NAGR supporters like you have led the charge when it comes to restoring our gun rights.

From repealing Obama’s Social Security and Lead Ammo Bans, to nominating and confirming a pro-gun Supreme Court Justice, we keep winning.

But once again anti-gun liberals keep trying to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

It is because radical gun grabbers like Chuck Schumer are convinced that Trump advisors will work to appease them by nominating a “moderate” FBI Director.

Fellow Patriot, don’t believe that “moderate” lie. Anyone that Chuck Schumer would be appeased by is no friend of the Second Amendment.

That’s why I must count on you to sign your NO ANTI-GUN FBI DIRECTOR petition without delay!

Just look at the current picks, including the active FBI Director, Andrew McCabe, who accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes on behalf of his Democrat wife’s State Senate campaign in Virginia.

In return for that bribe, McCabe dropped charges against Hillary Clinton for her infamous home-brew email server.

Also still on the list is Bloomberg’s former NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who is so anti-gun that he criticized former President Obama for not going far enough with his attempted gun grabs in 2012!

If we are to continue to advance our Second Amendment rights, we must not allow an anti-gunner to take over the FBI.

The Director of the FBI will ultimately decide the fate of the over 200,000 law-abiding veterans who were blocked from owning firearms over the past few years.

Do you think anyone that Chuck Schumer supports would do the right thing?

That’s why this is so important, so please sign your NO ANTI-GUN FBI DIRECTOR Petition to President Trump right away!

And once you sign, please consider making a generous contribution of $10, $20, or even $50!

Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated, but whether you can give or not, please don’t delay.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown

Columbia, SC – Yesterday, State Representative Jonathon Hill filed Constitutional Carry, a bill that would remove the requirement to obtain a government-issued permit in order to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense in South Carolina.

“The National Association for Gun Rights has been working closely with progun State Representative Jonathon Hill on this landmark legislation,” stated NAGR President Dudley Brown. “If passed, South Carolina would be the eleventh state to remove this government mandate once and for all.”

Under current law, concealed carrying a firearm in South Carolina does require a permit, and open carry is illegal. Constitutional Carry would not remove the existing permit process for those who seek reciprocity with neighboring states; however, it would remove the requirement to obtain the permit when carrying openly or concealed in South Carolina.

Windsor, CO – On Friday the National Association for Gun Rights delivered over 30,000 petitions to the White House after the fax machine line was reportedly severed.

These petitions, collected over the previous weekend, were signed by individual National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters, urging President Trump to immediately take action by fulfilling his pro-gun promises and undoing the great harm the Obama Administration inflicted on law-abiding gun owners.

“Throughout President Trump’s campaign, he promised to defend the Second Amendment, and now gun owners are urging him to come through on his promises,” said Dudley Brown, the group’s President. “Our members and supporters are using these petitions to send a message that we must have our Second Amendment rights restored.”

NAGR is waiting to hear from YOU!

   

The National Association for Gun Rights is dedicated to protecting gun rights all over the country.

In a little over a year, members like you have made it possible for us pass constitutional carry in FIVE states.

But threats to the Second Amendment continue to pile up.

With NAGR being fully dependent on donations from ardent Second Amendment supporters like you, we may not be able to face all of them at once.

That’s why we need you to CLICK HERE to vote for the fight you think NAGR should focus on.

President Obama wants a radical anti-gunner on the Supreme Court, and law-abiding Americans to live by the dangerous U.N. “Small Arms Treaty,” and elections are right around the corner.

Not to mention, weak-kneed Republicans are showing signs of vulnerability, ready to make compromises that will chip away at our Second Amendment rights.

We have our hands full.

However, the National Association for Gun rights relies entirely on financial support from its most dedicated members to function. Without a massive influx of funds, we may not be able fight on ALL fronts.

That’s why we’re asking YOU what our priorities should be.

To let us know which issues are most important to you, CLICK HERE.

The National Association for Gun Rights continues to captivate audiences concerned about gun rights, by giving away an F-1 BDR-15 3G Skeletonized Rifle equipped with a Thermal Imaging Scope.

The gun giveaway ends on Friday, April 30th, 2016, and anyone over 18 years of age who is also legal to own a firearm is eligible to win. There is no cost to enter, but NAGR hopes that people who care about Second Amendment issues will consider contributing to the organization to help support gun rights.

To be entered to win this F-1 BDR-15 3G Skeletonized Rifle, CLICK HERE!

With all of its features, the F-1 BDR-15 3G Skeletonized Rifle is considered by gun-grabbing politicians to be an “assault-style” rifle, and would be outlawed if Congress passed another Clinton-era assault rifle ban.

“Giving away an F-1 BDR-15 3G skeletonized rifle brings more people into the fight for our Second Amendment rights,” said National Association for Gun Rights President, Dudley Brown. “This gun has every “assault-style” feature that Obama and his gun grabbers want to ban.”

 

All features of the F-1 BDR-15 3G skeletonized rifle are indeed included in Congress’s list of banned features in the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2015,” including: a collapsible stock, “protruding pistol grip”, and muzzle brake.

And of course, it is currently prohibited for civilian ownership in several states, including California.

“It’s a great time to launch a giveaway like this,” Brown added. “Especially since Obama’s sweeping list of guns to ban has been in the news lately.”

Brown was referring to Obama’s series of Executive Orders calling for stricter gun control in every aspect of buying and owning firearms.

In response to the recent Executive Orders, the National Association for Gun Rights mobilized a massive grassroots campaign to pressure Republican Senators and Representatives into opposing Obama’s demands for funding, delivering tens of thousands of signed petitions.

“It’s a great time to launch a giveaway like this,” Brown added. “Especially considering the fact that the Barrett .50 cal has been in the news recently.”

Brown was referring to the recent news that a Barrett .50 cal rifle wound up in the hands of the notorious Mexican drug kingpin known as El Chapo, thanks to Obama’s botched Operation Fast and Furious program.

Operation Fast and Furious was spearheaded by Obama’s ATF, the same agency that the President hoped would benefit from a massive increase in staff and budget as part of his Executive Orders on gun control issued in January.

In response to the recent Executive Orders, the National Association for Gun Rights mobilized a massive grassroots campaign to pressure Republican Senators and Representatives into opposing Obama’s demands for funding, delivering tens of thousands of signed petitions.
