Aurora Theater Shooting

July 25, 2012

I know I don’t need to tell you, but the past four days have been incredibly difficult.

My prayers, and the prayers of our staff and members, go out to the families of the victims and those wounded in the Aurora theater attack.

At first I was sad, but now I’m angry.

I’m angry that the theater bans law-abiding citizens from arming themselves for self-defense.

I’m angry that this deranged lunatic murdered men, women and children in a senseless act of violence.


And I’m outraged that barely 5 hours after the murders, the gun control vultures were already circling the victims.

The very next morning, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg took to the airwaves to exploit the blood of innocents to advance his radical anti-gun agenda.  He’s even gone so far as to suggest that law-enforcement should go on strike, to compel the public to accept gun bans.

Never one to let a “crisis go to waste,” Bloomberg is demanding both President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney publicly come out in favor of expanding gun control.

My phone has been ringing off the hook with calls from reporters and gun control advocates, all demanding bans on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, waiting periods on firearms purchases, limitations on ammo sales, you name it.

It's like it was 13 years ago, right after Columbine.  And this time there is a Democrat State Senate and Governor, and could be a Democrat House after the November Election. 

I need you now, more than ever.

Can I count on you?  Will you help me fight the latest gun-ban schemes with a donation of $500, $200, $100 or $50, today?

I know that is a lot to ask, in these tough economic times.  If you can chip-in even just $15 or $20 today, I know RMGO will be ready to fight any gun-bans that they try to put forth.

While Colorado and the nation remain in a state of shock and grief, the Bloomberg political machine is callously exploiting this tragedy to churn out their anti-gun lies and rhetoric.

Make no mistake -- this is a dangerous time right now for our gun rights.

Already Congressman Ed Pearlmutter (D-CO) has answered Bloomberg’s siren call for more gun control.

President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are neck-and-neck in the Presidential race and they’re desperate.

And that means OUR Constitutionally-protected gun rights are certain to be in their sights.

Tragedies like the movie theater shooting are just the sort of thing that the gun-banners have been waiting to exploit.

They will use this tragedy -- and others like it -- to call for “action.”

You and I both know their “call to action” means more gun control.

As gun owners and gun rights activists we MUST be vigilant in these times -- not just in the defense of our loved ones, but in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.

That is why I need to know you’re ready to stand with me in the battle to protect our right to keep and bear arms.

The battle is coming, can I count on you?  Will you help me fight the latest gun-ban schemes with a donation of $500, $200, $100 or $50, today?

I know that is a lot to ask, in these tough economic times.  If you can chip-in even just $15 or $20 today, I know RMGO will be ready to fight any gun-bans.

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners MUST be prepared for an all-out assault on our right to self-defense.

That’s why your donation – today... right now -- is so important.

 

For liberty,
