Wisconsin: Gov. Evers Calls for Firearm Confiscation & Criminalizing Private Transfers

NEVER TRUST LIBERALS…ONCE AGAIN THEY HAVE SHOWN THEIR TRUE INTENTIONS – TOTAL GUN CONFISCATION!

THEY WILL CONTINUE TO TRY TO TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT OF SELF DEFENSE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.  USUALLY THEY ATTEMPT TO MASK THE GUN CONFISCATION IN LANGUAGE USING WORDS LIKE “COMMON SENSE GUN CONTROL” OR “REASONABLE REFORM”.

MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT…NOTHING THEY PROPOSE IS REASONABLE.  THEIR INTENTIONS ARE CLEAR.  THEY HATE YOU AND WANT TO CONTROL YOU BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.  THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN DO THAT IS BY TAKING AWAY YOUR ABILITY TO RESIST.

FROM NRA-ILA:

On September 19th, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, Attorney General Josh Kaul, Representative Melissa Sargent (D-48), and Senator Lena Taylor (D-4) held a press conference calling on the Legislature to violate the Second Amendment by: 1) allowing confiscation of firearms without due process; and 2) criminalizing private transfers. If the Legislature does not quickly comply with these demands, Gov. Evers threatened to push for a special session.

WI State Senator David Craig Responds:

Madison, WI — Today, State Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) released the following statement on Governor Tony Evers’ willingness to consider gun confiscation in Wisconsin:

 “This is why Wisconsinites will never trust liberals with their Second Amendment Rights. Hiding behind every supposedly ‘reasonable’ gun control measure is the Democrats’ desire to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens.”

“Today’s statement by Governor Evers entertaining gun confiscation is beyond troubling and is a window into Wisconsin liberals’ intentions to trample on our state and federal Constitutional rights.”

Paul Ryan (R-WI) to Cut Gun Control Deal, Major Vote Next Week

From Ammoland.com

Wisconsin – -(Ammoland.com)- While you and I prepare for a weekend of R&R in celebration of this nation’s freedom, Wisconsin Republicrat Paul Ryan is working behind the scenes to crush what little freedom you and I have left.

That’s right, Ryan — according to a story on AmmoLand News and again on rollcall.com yesterday, “House Plans Vote on Guns Next Week” — will urge the U.S. House early next week to vote for “a counterterrorism package that will include a provision to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns” and a so-called mental health bill that will effectively disarm and prohibit gun ownership for millions of Americans without due process based on phony junk science and the “diagnoses” from any anti-gun doctor with an axe to grind.

Of course, these politicians — people who have made a career out of habitual lies and broken promises — are trying to reassure gun owners that they will build in an appeals process for anyone wrongly placed on the government’s East-German Stasi-style secret watchlists.

Yeah, right.

As our friends at Gun Owners of America points out here, even IF there is an appeals process for being wrongly placed on a watchlist (as millions of Americans are) no one will be able to afford the attorneys’ fees to fight that legal battle.

Sadly, the institutional gun lobby is offering a so-called “compromise” which will arguably be just as bad as the anti-gunners’ bill … all in an attempt to try to look ‘reasonable.’

You and I know that’s a very, very bad strategy: like trying to feed scraps of meat to the crocodile that’s about to eat you.

Anti-gun bills being introduced include:

  • Obama’s “No-Fly, No Guns” program, labeling you a “terrorist” because some bureaucrat doesn’t like your political views.
  • Implement mental health gun ban, so any hand-picked “doctor” can declare you mentally unfit to own firearms … with no due process or right to appeal.

Again, this attack on our firearm freedom will be launched right after politicians return from the July 4th 2016 recess — so after getting rested up during a weekend of phony homage to freedom, they will turn right around next week and attack your freedom.

Call Paul Ryan’s Office and tell him what you think of this!

 

Rock River Patriots Meeting This Friday January 8th

The Rock River Patriots are having a meeting this Friday, January 8th, in Fort Atkinson at the Dwight Foster Library beginning at 6:00 pm.  The Dwight Foster Library is located at 209 Merchants Avenue.

At this meeting we welcome State Assembly Rep. Cody Horlacher to discuss what is happening in Madison as the legislative session draws to a close.  We will also discuss current events and initiatives.  Hope to see you all there!

 

Upcoming Events

 

Pro-Life Rally in Madison at the State Capitol on January 12th at noon.
Here is the event flyer with more information: Rally for Life Press Release_TIME_CHANGE

Contact Your Legislators

Contact your legislators in support the upcoming right to work bill as well as being repeal of the 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.

Right to work is all about personal freedom. An individual should not have to be forced into joining a union just because of their chosen career field is one dominated by unions.  The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday,  February 24th.  Invited speakers will go first (likely taking up first 2-3 hours) then the public will have the opportunity to testify.  RTW hearing, February 24th, 10:00 am in Room 411 South of the State Capitol  (Senate’s Labor Committee).

Senate Bill 35 and Assembly Bill 49 – Repealing the 48 hour waiting period on handgun purchases only makes sense.  A buyer has a background check completed as part of the purchasing process . The other thing to recognize is that the 48 hour waiting period does not apply to long guns. If a person is determined to do harm to someone else using a gun, it is very easy for them to obtain a long  gun without the 48 hour waiting period.  Finally, as we always need to mention, criminals do not obey the law anyway. These measures simply infringe on the law abiding citizens natural right of self-defense.

ALERT! Over the weekend the Speaker of the Assembly, Rep. Robin Vos spoke out IN FAVOR of Common Core at the Racine GOP Caucus!

On Saturday, February 21st, Rep. Robin Vos spoke about Common Core at the Racine County GOP caucus.  He said: “Common Core isn’t bad and it’s just a bunch of goals everybody would agree with.”

Rep. Vos is spreading a myth and this is very, very dangerous!
We all know that Common Core is much more than “just a bunch of goals”.  It is a Big Government/Big Business takeover of public education, a standardization of our children’s minds, an objectification of our teachers, and a removal of local control from our school systems.  Rep. Robin Vos and Governor Scott Walker must be made aware that we do not appreciate such dismissive remarks about such a crucial issue.
Our calls for will be to:

Rep Robin Vos – Speaker – (608) 266-9171
(also email Rep. Vos at Rep.Vos@legis.wisconsin.gov)
Governor Scott Walker – (608) 266-1212
(also email Governor Walker at govgeneral@wisconsin.gov)

You can use a message similar to the following:

“I understand that, over the weekend, Rep. Robin Vos said that Common Core is ‘just a bunch of goals everyone would agree with’.  Well, I DON’T AGREE WITH COMMON CORE.  Its goals are to standardize education in America in a way that demoralizes teachers, removes local control of schools from parents and taxpayers, disrespects differences among students, and profits big education corporations.  We can’t afford this.  The cost to us in terms of dollar, our children’s future, and academic freedom is just too high.  Why won’t Rep. Vos join Governor Walker and push for a COMPLETE REPEAL of Common Core?”
