Today the Associated Press quoted Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper as saying the “time is right” for gun control.
RMGO and it’s thousands of members disagree, and we’re going to fight these gun control measures with everything we have -- and hold politicians accountable for their votes. Anyone reading this article knows gun control doesn’t stop criminals. Even Governor Hickenlooper knows that -- that’s what he said right after the Aurora theater shooting, before the gun control lobby strong-armed him into changing his tune.
Much like after the Columbine tragedy of 1999, my office is inundated with e-mails and phone calls from gun owners who ask:
“Can we beat these gun controls?” “How can I help?”
So, using my 20 years of experience as a gun lobbyist as a guide, let me answer those questions.
Can we beat these gun controls?
Without the help of large numbers of dedicated gun owners, a smart strategy and the resources we need to activate our side, no, we can’t. That’s why your involvement and help is so important. There are many, many ways we can lose this fight.
