NRA urges continued vigilance on 2nd Amendment, revolt against liberal billionaires

For many voters whose primary focus in the 2016 election was the 2nd Amendment, Donald Trump’s victory is quelling fears about the future of American firearm rights. But the nation’s top gun lobby is warning that the White House victory will embolden efforts by liberal billionaires and their legislative counterparts to disarm citizens.

National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre recently urged the organization’s 5 million members to continue fighting for the 2nd Amendment with the “same urgency and determined action that ended the political future of Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

Clinton made no secret about her plans to clamp down on Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights— and American gun owners worried about the future of the Supreme Court responded in massive numbers by voting for Trump.

But LaPierre warns that Clinton’s anti-gun backers—liberal billionaires like George Soros and Michael Bloomberg— are already working to regroup and find new avenues to push their anti-firearm agenda.

He told supporters: “The truth is, the anti-gun billionaires have only one goal: the absolute eradication of the Second Amendment freedom for the average American citizen. Not for their security forces, their families and themselves. But for you: the everyday American who stormed the polls in an act of ultimate defiance of the elites. They will continue to enjoy the support of an openly dishonest media that truly hates your right to speak, your right to worship and your right to vote. And most of all, your right to keep and bear arms.”

If Trump makes good on his promises to vigorously defend the 2nd Amendment at the federal level, gun grabbers are expected to divert more resources to promoting anti-firearm regulations at the state and local level.

Unless they are vigorously challenged in the courts, these harsh new gun laws could effectively disarm hundreds of thousands of Americans without ever making national news.

Last week, Americans in three states got a taste of what may be coming.

In Nevada, voters passed a ballot measure aimed at closing the so-called gun show loophole. The new law will make private gun transfers between residents subject to the same scrutiny as retail gun sales, including requiring background checks.

Californians, meanwhile, voted to make their already draconian gun laws harsher by passing laws to ban the sale of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and requiring background checks for ammunition purchases.

A similar proposal was narrowly defeated in Maine.

Perhaps the most extreme of the new state gun laws, however, comes from the state of Washington. Voters there opted to make it possible for friends, family, law enforcement, nosey neighbors—or just about anyone, really— to accuse a gun owner of being dangerous, thus giving police the ability to suspend 2nd Amendment rights without due process.

Each of those new gun laws was backed by anti-2nd Amendment groups like Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety. Both groups are heavily funded by, you guessed it, liberal billionaires like Soros and Bloomberg.

“Make no mistake: Moms will not allow the outcome of one election to deter us. It’s up to us to stand between the president-elect and the NRA’s vision of more guns for more people,” Moms Demand Action said in a statement following Trump’s win, adding that the group is prepared to “fight back on day one of Trump’s presidency.”
