National Association for Gun Rights calls on Congress to oppose Kaine-Warner Gun Control Bill
NAGR President Dudley Brown urges 4.5 million members and supporters to ramp up
political pressure on elected officials
Washington, D.C. – The National Association for Gun Rights sounded the alarm this week against gun control legislation introduced by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA). The “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” aims to federally enact a series of gun control laws recently imposed in the state of Virginia, to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.
The “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” seeks to impose Virginia’s new gun control legislation on the national level, including the state’s “red flag” law, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a prohibition on private gun sales between law-abiding gun owners. Virginia’s measures generated protests from tens of thousands of angry gun owners at the state capitol earlier this year and now Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.
“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Brown said his staff is already in the process of mobilizing the more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to contact Sen. Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this bill and all gun control.
“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” said Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
