No, You Are Not Their Friends

They tell you they know best. They tell you they only want to help. And they tell you shouldn't own a gun.

They tell you those things, but they are wrong.

The things they won't tell you is that gun sales have skyrocketed, that people of color and women have discovered that the Second Amendment is their right as much as anyone's. They won't tell you that despite their dire predictions, the only bad thing happening in their estimation is that people now own more guns.

You see, gun control is not about reducing violence. It's about controlling the very people they call their friends. Gun control is about controlling you – controlling your daily lives, your opinions and, ultimately, your vote. Because controlling your vote gives them more power to control - you.

Now, because they see the writing on the wall concerning gun ownership, they have decided to make it harder to afford ammunition – harder for you to afford ammunition. Yes, they tell you as a friend they would like you to practice gun safety. Yet, as a friend, how do they justify making it harder to practice your newly understood right? The answer, of course, is that they want you to lock your firearm away, unable to use it for sport or for self defense. Unable to exercise your right. But, no, they won't tell you that.

Join us in opposing their new ammo tax, HB238. This bill proposes not just to add an additional tax on the cost of ammunition, but a tax on the Second Amendment right itself. A tax on your right, on our individual right to keep and bear arms.
