Subject: Your 2010 NAGR Membership Renewal
Dear NAGR supporter,
I'm worried. Have you heard the news?
Gun control is on
the move in Congress.
And if we do nothing, I can guarantee it
That's why your 2010 Membership Renewal with the
National Association for Gun Rights is so important.
is going from bad to worse in a hurry, particularly where our gun rights
are concerned. Grassroots activists like you and I can’t simply hope
that the anti-gunners are stopped this year.
"Hope" is not a plan.
I don't need to tell you the current White House, and the majority
in Congress, is anti-gun. As a member of the National Association
for Gun Rights, you've witnessed it firsthand.
Without a herculean
effort from gun owners, where we fight smarter and harder than ever
before, I’m certain we face major restrictions on our right to keep and
That's why I need to ask you to give more than you’ve
That is why returning your 2010 membership
renewal with the National Association for Gun Rights before December 31,
2009, could not be more important.
Right now I'm
trying to set the National Association for Gun Rights’ 2010 budget, and I
feel like the Captain of the Titanic; water is coming over the side and we
don’t have enough buckets to bail it out.
We are facing major
legislative battles which could shape our Second Amendment rights for
decades to come.
From gun registration and confiscation
schemes like H.R. 45, to an outright ban on certain kinds
of weapons, to classifying gun owners as “domestic terrorists,”
to the quasi-governmental United Nations Small Arms gun
ban; the National Association for Gun Rights has its work cut
out for it in the U.S. House and Senate.
And that's just the
I'm proud to say the National Association for
Gun Rights has waded into legal battles over the right to keep and bear
Our recent amicus brief in the MacDonald v. Chicago case is
just the tip of the iceberg. Gun owners need to continue to push
the legal envelope against anti-gun city regulations and intrusive,
unconstitutional state and federal gun control laws.
news is the National Association for Gun Rights just doesn’t have the
money to fight all the legal battles that need to be fought -- unless you
join with me in committing to membership in the National Association for
To make matters worse, 2010 is an election year, and
you know what that means...
. . . RIGHT NOW is the prime time to
be holding politicians accountable.
Gun owners must use primary
and general elections to force politicians to support our Constitutional
right to keep and bear arms.
There is nothing more important to a
politician than re-election. If gun owners can threaten a
politician’s re-election, we can force them to vote right.
Politicians who ride the fence must be forced to vote right, and
the ones who vote against our rights must be voted out of office.
As simple as that sounds it takes a lot of time and treasure to
fight battles in the legislature, to take the fight to the anti-gunners in
court and to hold politicians accountable during an election.
2010 membership renewal with the National Association for Gun Rights could
be the difference between victory and the loss of our gun
Gun owners are at a crossroads this year.
The National Association for Gun Rights, with the help of our
strong grassroots membership, has been able to fight back and expose the
gun control schemes of anti-gunners in Congress, but we need
your help to continue.
The job before the National
Association for Gun Rights, and grassroots activists like you and me, is
staggering. The number of battles we must fight is mind-boggling.
I'm writing this e-mail because I'm convinced the grassroots
supporters of the National Association for Gun Rights are the only thing standing in the way of Sarah Brady's lapdogs in the White House and
The National Association for Gun Rights is one of the
very few groups in America that opposes gun control at every turn --
whether sponsored by Republicans or Democrats -- and is dedicated to doing
everything possible to defend our rights.
In short, we will make
the gun-grabbers pay for every inch they attempt to take.
not going to cut deals in smoke-filled rooms with our enemies. There
will be no compromise.
Instead, our plan is to draw a line in
the sand. And hold them accountable for every vote, every degradation of
our right to keep and bear arms.
Unfortunately, with rising costs
of paper and other supplies and yet another hike in postage, we're going
to be forced to cut back -- at a time in which we must do even more -- unless
you renew your 2010 membership with the National Association for Gun
Rights, and renew your membership at an even greater level.
The truth is, we can't afford to let the anti-gun lobby -- who has
revenue coffers running up into the millions of dollars and whose fat-cat
executives draw six-figure salaries -- run the show. We know what
that brings: more gun control.
The sad truth is, once a right is lost, it is almost impossible to
reclaim it. We are facing an anti-gun onslaught, the likes of which
I haven’t seen in my 20 years in professional politics.That is why I'm asking you to dig deep and renew your membership with
the National Association for Gun Rights.Costs are rising and the threat is greater now than ever before.
The National Association for Gun Rights runs a lean, mean gun-control
fighting machine.Whichever level you choose is up to you, but please let me know today
that you have decided to renew your 2010 membership in the National
Association for Gun Rights.
is imperative that you renew your membership with the National Association
for Gun Rights before December 31, 2009. I must set
our 2010 operating budget by the end of the year, and I simply must know
if you stand with me against the radical anti-gunners in Washington
Thank you, in advance, for renewing your membership with the
National Association for Gun Rights.
P.S. Gun owners are facing
the largest onslaught of gun control we are likely to see in our lifetime.
Being attacked on so many fronts, we can't afford to fight them all unless
you can help us by digging deep and giving more than you've given before.
