Rand says his "jaw hit the floor"

In an email from Rand:

Dear fellow Patriot,

My jaw hit the floor.

After reading Senator Dianne Feinstein’s new so-called "Assault Weapons" Ban, I can only describe this radical scheme as the effective END of the Second Amendment in America.

The gun-grabbers are going for broke, doing everything they can to "cash in" on the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

They’re targeting EVERYTHING -- rifles, shotguns and even handguns -- and every gun owner and gun purchase is to be catalogued and tracked by the federal government.

That’s why it’s absolutely critical you act IMMEDIATELY.

As you’ll see, I’ve enclosed a special Emergency Second Amendment Protection Directive INSISTING your Representative and Senators vote against this radical scheme.

Won’t you please sign it TODAY? There’s no time to waste.

President Obama’s Administration is announcing it will "push forward quickly" on gun control -- and Vice President Joe Biden is promising it will be a "done deal" in a matter of weeks!

If passed, Feinstein’s Gun Ban would:
*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of 120 specifically named rifles, shotguns and handguns!

*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of ALL firearms with a detachable magazine and at least one "military characteristic" -- which could mean just about anything that makes a gun "look scary;"

*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of magazines holding more than 10 rounds;

*** Force owners of ALL "grandfathered" weapons to undergo an intrusive background check and fingerprinting -- treating law-abiding citizens like criminals;

*** Force owners of ALL "grandfathered" weapons to federally register their guns after obtaining a permission slip from local law enforcement showing their guns are not in violation of state or local law.
That’s right. If you own a $10 magazine that’s more than 10 rounds, you’ll have to register it with the BATFE in their National Firearms Registry.

The ban on "transfers" means you and I can forget about ever handing down one of these guns to our kids and grandkids.

Worse, it could mean widows become instant felons if their husbands owned one of these banned magazines or firearms!

And make no mistake, the gun-grabbers’ TRUE motives behind gun registration is always the same -- outright gun CONFISCATION, and to do that they must first register every gun and gun owner.

Then Senator Feinstein will be able to achieve her publicly stated goal:

"Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in."

I can hardly even think about what a DISASTER for our country it would be should President Obama, Senator Feinstein and their anti-gun pals succeed in ramming this monstrosity down our throats.

This is exactly the WRONG move for our country -- for our liberties and for our safety.

Now I know THAT’S something you’re not hearing from the anti-gun propagandists in the national media.

But the truth is, increasing gun sales in America in recent years has led to lower crime rates.

The same is true all over the world.

Studies show countries with low rates of civilian firearms ownership are the most violent. Countries with high rates of civilian firearms ownership are the safest.

Just look to nearby Mexico if you want to see an example of the gun-grabbers’ idea of utopia. Effectively ruled by violent drug gangs in many areas, Mexico is a cesspool of rape, violence and murder.

If you and I want to keep the Second Amendment freedoms we’re so blessed to enjoy as American citizens, it’s absolutely CRITICAL you and I act IMMEDIATELY.

That’s why I’ve agreed to help the National Association for Gun Rights fight back to stop this Gun Ban and help lead the fight AGAINST the gun-grabbers.

They’re tough. They’re principled. And they know how to win.

They know the ONLY way you and I win this fight is if my colleagues here in Congress understand that voting for gun control will mean the END of their political careers . . .

And they’re busy mobilizing pro-gun Americans all over the country to make sure Congress gets that message loud and clear.

Won’t you please sign it TODAY?

But with President Obama, Sarah Brady and all the gun-grabbers doubling down, there’s not much time.

To defeat this radical scheme, the National Association for Gun Rights is going to have to pull out all the stops to alert and mobilize Second Amendment supporters all over the country.

Direct mail. Phones. Email. Blogs. Guest editorials. Press conferences. Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits. The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat Feinstein's Gun Ban, pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!

So please put yourself on record AGAINST the Feinstein's Gun Ban by signing NAGR’s Emergency Second Amendment Protection Directive.

But along with your signed Directive, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

P.S. The gun-grabbers are going for broke.

My jaw hit the floor reading the list of anti-gun provisions in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) new Gun Ban.

I can only describe this radical scheme as the effective END of the Second Amendment in America.

And time is running out to stop them.

Please sign your Emergency Second Amendment Protection Directive and put yourself squarely on the record AGAINST the Feinstein's Gun Ban.

And if you can, please make a generous contribution to the National Association for Gun Rights of $250, $150, $100 or even just $35 right away!

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

This Is a VERY Pressing Key Issue

So let's keep this topic active for more exposure and activism which it deserves.

10 Minutes After Submitting This...

... I did not see the topic for this thread display in the active topics list, as if the dailypaul is not functioning properly, so here goes again...

Yet Again - Same Problem Occurred

After refreshing various dailypaul screens for 5 minutes after submitting the reply to my reply, still the thread topic is not showing up in the active topics list. Can anyone explain how this might be possible?

The active topics list is changing, just not displaying the topic for this thread.


I'm a lifetime NRA member, a member of GOAL in Massachusetts, but I just sent $50 to RandPac because honestly it almost doesn't matter what the issue du jour is, we need someone like Rand at the forefront of defending us. I should have an "I Stand With Rand" T-shirt shipping out to me soon. :-)

Cyril's picture

Dear Granger,

Dear Granger,

Just in case you missed those (as I'm pretty concerned by this topic, too)... well, his jaw hitting the floor was indeed predictable :

Obama says Americans have spoken on gun control, urges Congress to vote on assault weapons ban, 03/23/2013 :


More on exposing la Feinstein :


Maybe Rand was even less prepared to the infamy brewing against the People than we were. Even politicians can be naive, sometimes.

Wishing you the best as you keep alerting the GOP around you,

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Take Action Now!

The time to act is now. I don't agree 100% with 100% of the liberty-movements spokespeople, but Rand needs to be supported 100% as he can seriously harm the NWO agenda if enough people support him.

It's time to wake up from the denial, 911 was an inside job, Sandy Hook was an inside job, and these tyrants are going for broke. THEY ARE the domestic traitors the constitution demands all those who take their oath to protect against. Where are you in this great time of challenge?


The comment I'd like to make about that blankety-blank-blank-blank f'ing bi-otch is filthy and unprintable.. curse california for allowing her to keep her office and a pox on us if we don't get her out!

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

You don't have to donate. Do

You don't have to donate. Do you realize it takes money to get things done?

Money talks.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

i upvoted

I get these emails... but they all have the same script. And in the back of my mind a always see the "essence" of your post. That said, the agenda (which i believe to be a serious threat to liberty) being excessively railed against in this message needs to be stopped...

The email was so stark and depressing,

and then it goes from bad to worse with the donations solicitation. It was hard to figure out if your getting threatened, ripped-off, or threatened and ripped-off, or saved. I just couldn't help myself.


gotta love the need for cash on the spot. This is why politics is such a joke, really a group of people make up rules because they believe they know what is better for you to follow.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

He didn't say money will fix it

He offers a plan of action, and will most likely be a very loud voice in the fight against this bill. Directing a reader to a donation site, alongside the other info in the message is pretty much standard procedure. Ron Paul did it in his messages too (for CFL and his campaign)

What are you

talking about? He's asking people donate to the National Association for Gun Rights.
