As the assault on gun rights keeps advancing, various gun rights groups are on Capitol Hill trying to ensure Americans don’t get sold down the river by RINOs and liberals.
With the midterms approaching, Republicans and Democrats from pro-gun districts are hesitant to move too strongly on 2A, but there’s still quite a bit of momentum in the direction of gun control.
The horrific shooting in Uvalde, Texas, in particular, has been used by the left to argue that high-capacity rifles are the reason school shootings are taking place. Gun control supporters say we need to beef up red flag laws and raise the minimum purchasing age.
Meet the Firearms Policy Coalition
The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) is a leading gun-rights group that is working to ensure our 2A rights don’t get snookered away while we’re not looking.
They’ve been corresponding with the US Senate to encourage their negotiations not to cross the line into unconstitutional behavior.
While some on the right and left may feel now is the time to infringe on gun rights and start introducing stealth gun control via red flag, increased background checks, and more, FCP wants to encourage patriots not to fall for this trick.
In their letter, FCP says the Senate needs to remember it has “no power” to actually strip or reduce “inalienable rights.” FCP encourages senators to play no part in “eroding” our rights with self-defense and bearing arms.
FCP has also been vocal in criticizing people like Senator John Cornyn, who it accuses of “wanting” to put through gun control if he could.
So you concede that you *wanted* to enact #guncontrol and that passing gun control was your only goal.
This is a fucking joke. #Texas, fix your boy.

Desire to ‘Comply’ is ‘Diminishing’
FCP also said people are growing weary of government overreach and the nanny state; their ability to “comply” is “diminishing.”
There’s no doubt FCP is one of the strongest 2A supporting groups in the country and it strongly calls out even the slightest sign of infringement.
This is a time when law-abiding citizens are under pressure like never before to give up their guns and submit to state tyranny. Will they do so or not? Time will tell.
They are conspiring against you!

The Bottom Line
Even the biggest supporter of gun control is faced with a fundamental paradox. In order to support restrictions and removal of gun rights from ordinary citizens, you need someone to do that.
For large portions of the left and right, the government is not the trustworthy third party that’s going to responsibly step in and take care of your security for you.
Instead, the government is the one taxing you to death, waging wars you don’t agree with, burning children in Waco, and making endless rules that are making this country a worse place.
Why would you trust them with your guns?
