Just when we thought the liberals couldn’t find anything else to tax us on, Harry Reid proposes a gun tax.
Reid knows he can’t repeal the Second Amendment, so he’s determined to make it more difficult and expensive for us to enjoy the gun rights granted to us by the Constitution. That’s why his new legislation requires the sale of a firearm to include a fee for a government-mandated background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. Because we’ll be required to pay for this government-mandated check, Reid’s legislation is, more or less, a federal firearms tax.
We the People cannot stand for this. We must fight back!
Your signature on the “No Taxes on our Guns” petition will send Harry Reid and his radical allies a loud and clear message that we won’t let them trample upon our Second Amendment rights-or any part of the Constitution. I can’t emphasize enough how important this is.
Reid’s legislation is expected to reach the Senate floor next week, so we don’t have much time to prevent its passage. Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio have signed a statement promising to filibuster Reid’s bill if it reaches the floor, but their efforts are only a stopgap.
The only way to ensure Harry Reid’s bill does not become law is for We the People to demonstrate we will not back down. That’s why I’m asking you to add your name to the “No Taxes on our Guns” petition right away.
Please also make a generous donation to support the Guardian Fund to help us elect more leaders like Senators Paul, Lee, Cruz, and Rubio to defend our Constitution. Thank you in advance for your support.
Steadfast and loyal,
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)
