Gaining Momentum

Dear Fellow Patriot,

Constitutional Carry is gaining momentum across the country.

It is the law of the land in 10 different states, and has been introduced in over a dozen states already this year.

Texas is one of the states it has been introduced in, and will be one of the main battlegrounds for Constitutional Carry over the next few months.

That’s why I, along with NAGR Vice President Zach Lautenschlager, spent some time earlier this month in Austin, TX for a member briefing.

During this member briefing, I had the honor of awarding NAGR’s .50 Caliber Freedom Award to two of the most dedicated gun rights champions I’ve had the pleasure of working with, Texas Reps. Jonathan Stickland and Matt Rinaldi.



Both Stickland and Rinaldi proved their dedication to the Second Amendment during the last Texas legislative session where they stood up against the anti-gun establishment forces, and unapologetically pushed Constitutional Carry.

Although they didn’t achieve it last session, they are back and more determined than ever to restore the Second Amendment in Texas.

Constitutional Carry is the number one state-level legislative priority for the National Association for Gun Rights.

And we are seeing a lot of momentum, in fact, before 2010, only two states -- Alaska and Vermont -- had Constitutional Carry on the books!

Constitutional Carry is a very simple concept: it states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

In Constitutional Carry states, as long as you are allowed to own a gun, you are not required to beg the government for permission to carry that firearm.

Your National Association for Gun Rights will not give up until this is the policy in all 50 states.

If you believe that the Second Amendment is the only permit you should need, please consider chipping in $10 or $20 to help NAGR continue to fight for this solid pro-gun reform!

I must count on your support to get this done.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
President
National Association for Gun Rights

Employee with AR-15 shoots robber


Around midnight, a gang of thugs zoomed into a gun range parking lot, and tried to break into an employee’s car.


But the two employees inside were alerted by surveillance footage, and ran outside, firearms in hand, prepared for the armed thugs.


Shocked, the two thugs by the employee’s car dropped their weapons, and the employees held them at gunpoint.


Meanwhile, the remaining three suspects jumped into one of the vehicles and pulled away – shooting at the employees as they took off.


But one employee returned fire with his AR-15.


One of the suspects arrested at the scene turned out to be a felon, and had been carrying a pistol.


Half an hour later, the suspect with a wound from the AR-15 was dropped off at a medical center. Police are still looking for the other suspects.


No charges were filed against the employee.


Local news reports:

HOUSTON - Houston-area employees at a gun store on the Katy Freeway near Kirkwood fought back as a group of men attempted to break into the shop around midnight Tuesday, police said.

Invader with dumb excuse stopped mid-burglary


A woman was home alone around noon when suddenly loud noises began coming from her garage.


The noises sounded suspiciously like a burglary attempt, so the homeowner got her gun, and just as she expected, she found a female suspect trying to break into the house.


The homeowner held the suspect at gunpoint until officials arrived.


When law enforcement arrived on the scene, the suspect claimed she had broken into the garage because her car had run out of gas.


However, the far-fetched excuse didn’t persuade the deputies, who also found that the suspect had an extensive criminal history. She is currently in jail on a $100,000 bond.


Local news reports:

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tex. (KBTX) - A burglary suspect was arrested after a Brenham resident managed to hold her at gunpoint until law enforcement arrived.

According to Sheriff Otto Hanak, Washington County Deputies responded to a home located on Tommelson Creek Road on Monday around noon after someone reported a burglary in progress.

The homeowner, who was inside the residence, say she was startled by loud noises coming from her garage and realized someone was trying to break-in from the garage door.

Constitutional Carry filed in Texas

Last year, licensed open carry passed the Texas legislature, but Constitutional Carry died when House leadership prevented the measure from coming to a vote.

Undaunted, gun rights hero State Rep. Jonathan Stickland has once more introduced a Constitutional Carry bill.

“This is meant to restore the Constitutional rights of Texans to be able to carry a firearm without being forced to take a government-mandated test and pay a fee,” Stickland said.

Due to the action of NAGR members, the number of states with Constitutional Carry has doubled from five to ten – with Missouri the most recent, overriding an anti-gun governor’s veto.

And despite the hysteria of the anti-gun lobby, the states that passed Constitutional Carry have not seen crime rates increase.

If Stickland’s bill succeeds in 2017, Texas would become the eleventh Constitutional Carry state.

NAGR urges lawmakers, Speaker of the House Joe Straus, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and Gov. Greg Abbott to listen to liberty-loving Texans, and pass Constitutional Carry into law.

Local news reports:

Measures to give Texans even more gun rights already are ricocheting around the Texas Capitol.

Concealed carrier protects family from gunman


A family leaving a concert was shocked to discover that a burglar had broken into their car.


They called the police to report the crime, and, while waiting for authorities to arrive, heard gunfire ring out close by.


Then, out of the night, a suspect with a gun came charging toward them, firing shots as he ran.


One of the family members was carrying concealed, and he ordered the gunman to drop his weapon.


When the suspect refused to comply, the concealed carrier fired one shot, striking the suspect in the arm.


The suspect was taken to a medical center for treatment and faces charges of deadly conduct. No charges were filed against the concealed carrier.

Armed Good Samaritan defuses robbery

Three armed robbers were prevented from burglarizing and terrorizing an AutoZone store’s employees this month in Houston, TX, by a civilian man with a firearm.

The Houston gun owner was parking his car in front of the AutoZone when he spied three armed thugs inside, holding store employees at gunpoint.

The Good Samaritan called the police and then took out his own firearm and entered the store.

He then pointed his gun at the three thugs and forced them to drop their weapons and get down while they waited for law enforcement officials to arrive.

Gun grabbers on Capitol Hill would leave Americans like these AutoZone employees defenseless. Sign your “No Gun Control, No Deals” petition RIGHT AWAY! ►►CLICK HERE

This gun-toting hero’s actions may have saved the employees’ lives and the store from being burglarized.

Thanks to this law-abiding citizen’s bravery, and his right to carry a firearm, no shots were fired, and there were no reported injuries.

The man was able to keep the criminals in place until the police arrived.

In Texas, citizens with a license to carry can do so either openly or concealed, and Texas law allows for the use of deadly force in self-defense of one’s own life or the life of another.

Strange attack stopped by armed father

A family of six was sleeping peacefully in the wee hours on Sunday morning when one of the children abruptly woke up.

The menacing noise of someone breaking into their back door reached his ears. He immediately ran to wake up his parents and alert them to the danger.

Springing into action, the father got his gun and went searching for the invader – finding him in the kitchen holding lighter fluid.

You’ll never know how or when criminals will strike – that’s why our right to keep and bear arms is so critical. Sign your “No Gun Control, No Deals” petition right away! ►►CLICK HERE

The father warned the invader that he had a gun and ordered the invader to leave.

Refusing, the invader retorted that the family should get out. After pouring lighter fluid all over the floor, he then attempted to ignite it.

The father told the invader to stop or he would shoot, but the arsonist only became more agitated, and cornered the father against the wall.

At that point, the father shot the arsonist in the stomach.

Detectives were called to investigate. The invader was taken to a medical center with non-life threatening injuries. No charges have been filed against the father.

This invader tried to burn up this man’s property – just like the gun grabbers would like to burn up our rights. Sign your “No Gun Control, No Deals” petition now! ►►CLICK HERE

Man stops armed robber with stolen car

 
A man was walking to his car when an armed degenerate snuck up and tried to rob him at gunpoint.


But the car owner had a gun of his own, and didn’t give in to this low-life’s demands. He fired multiple shots on the dangerous robber, stopping him in his tracks.


The car owner then called 911 to report the attempted crime.

 
When officials arrived on the scene, they discovered that the thug was driving a stolen vehicle before attacking and attempting to rob this victim.


Who knows how far a criminal is willing to go as he preys on the innocent, or how high his victim-count could be? In this case, though, the crime was stopped by one brave, armed citizen.

Local news reports:

Authorities are investigating a Tuesday night robbery that left the suspect in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, according to the Beaumont Police Department.

The victim of the robbery was walking to his car in the parking lot of a Beaumont apartment complex, located at 2180 McFaddin Avenue, when a man approached him with a handgun and attempted to rob him, officials said.

The robbery victim had a gun and fired multiple rounds at the suspect, according to officials.
