Thread: United States Government thinks you’re a terrorist

  1. Angry United States Government thinks you’re a terrorist

    Eric Holder's secret weapon


    Dear NAGR supporter,

    Please forgive my bluntness, but the United States Government thinks you’re a terrorist.

    And now they’re trying to pass a bill allowing gun-grabbing Attorney General Eric Holder to revoke all your Second Amendment rights at will if he has “a reasonable belief” you could pose a “threat.”

    I know this sounds unbelievable, but read on.

    As you know, in a recently released report, the goons at Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security classified gun owners, honorably discharged veterans and little old church ladies as threats to the security and stability of the United States of America.

    Even a gesture as simple as placing a pro-gun bumper sticker on your car, or supporting a pro-gun candidate makes you a potential “domestic terrorist” in the eyes of the thugs running our government.

    Obviously, your First Amendment rights of free speech mean as much to Obama’s Department of Homeland Security as your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

    And to add insult to injury, Barack Obama’s Surveillance Czar Janet Napolitano sees no difference between law-abiding gun owners like you and violent racists who murder and vandalize.

    But if that’s not shocking and outrageous enough, it gets worse . . .

    Republican quislings Peter King of New York, Mark Kirk of Illinois and Mike Castle of Delaware have just introduced a new gun control bill that comes right out of this so-called “Rightwing Extremist” report.

    I’m talking about H.R. 2159, the shockingly misnamed “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009.”

    I call it the “Disarming American Citizens Act of 2009.”

    These anti-gun Republicans-in-Name-Only want to disarm you because they fear your pro-liberty views.

    In fact, your love of freedom frightens them so much that they’re now going to great lengths to label you a domestic terrorist.

    It’s the perfect way to silence “troublemakers” like you and me, and to marginalize our influence.

    And make no mistake: If Congress passes H.R. 2159, Eric Holder would have the authority to deny thousands of innocent Americans their constitutionally protected rights.

    But this bill isn’t just about Eric Holder taking away your Second Amendment rights if you’re “appropriately suspected” of “terrorism.”

    H.R. 2159 also allows Holder and his team of gun-grabbing henchmen to “withhold” any and all evidence from you or a court if Holder & co. “determine” that it might “compromise national security.”

    These are the same people who labeled small government advocates potential “domestic terrorists!” Who cares what they “determine”?

    Even more ridiculous, H.R. 2159 says that the courts “must” rely on Eric Holder’s personally “redacted versions” or “summaries” of the “evidence” he supposedly has against you . . .

    . . . and he never has to release the evidence he claims to have!

    They could annul your Second Amendment rights and convict you in a court of “law” without a shred of actual evidence . . . legally!

    NAGR needs your help today to stop H.R. 2159 from progressing any farther. Click here to contribute.

    You already know Attorney General Eric Holder is Barack Obama’s most ruthless anti-gun henchman.

    And we all know what Barack Obama himself thinks of gun owners.

    As a candidate, he claimed you and I were “bitter” uneducated folks “clinging” to guns out of hatred and frustration.

    And now as President, he and Surveillance Czar Janet Napolitano have gone a step further in declaring gun rights activists and pro-gun voters domestic terrorist threats.

    To make matters worse, Republican scalawags Mike Castle and Mark Kirk -- both notorious anti-gunners -- are working with Obama and Carolyn McCarthy to strip you of your most fundamental freedoms.

    If H.R. 2159 becomes law, Eric Holder -- or any other Attorney General for that matter -- will be allowed to disarm you based on your political views without having to provide any evidence for his claims.

    The National Association for Gun Rights is ready to stop H.R. 2159, the Disarming American Citizens Act.

    I’m committed to this fight. Are you?

    I hope you realize how dangerous this bill is. And I hope I can count on you to help fund our new program.

    Without your help, the National Association for Gun Rights will be unable to notify and mobilize gun owners across the country to combat this newest infringement on our constitutional rights.

    That is why it is imperative that you send in your most generous donation possible.

    Let me give you an idea of what gun owners are up against.

    With anti-gun Barack Obama in the White House, and Nancy Pelosi ruling the House of Representatives with an iron fist, our only hope to stop the Disarming American Citizens Act is in the Senate.

    As I’ve told you before, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid finds himself between a rock and a hard place.

    Even as his re-election to the Senate from pro-gun Nevada is very much in doubt, anti-gunners like Sarah Brady and MoveOn.org are pressuring him to do their bidding in Washington.

    To break a politician like Harry Reid, NAGR needs to stir up a hornet’s nest of discontent among gun owners across the country and especially in targeted states like Nevada.

    The good news is we have the ability to contact hundreds of thousands of gun owners by phone, fax, email and traditional mail.

    Unfortunately, reaching gun owners in a timely manner takes resources we simply don’t have.

    Fighting for our right to keep and bear arms isn’t cheap.

    For example, with the recent postage increases, it now costs the National Association for Gun Rights well over $1000 to produce and mail a letter to 1000 gun owners.

    But no matter what, we simply cannot let H.R. 2159, the Disarming American Citizens Act, become law.

    That’s why it’s imperative you take a moment to send in your most generous donation possible.

    $50, $100, $150 or $200 will make a huge difference in our fight to stop H.R. 2159.

    Click here to contribute.

    I wouldn’t ask if I didn’t know it was vitally important.

    I know that times are tough in this economy, but your generous donation of $50, $100, $150 or even $200 could mean the difference between success and failure for this program.

    I thank you in advance for your generous contribution.

    For Liberty,



    Dudley Brown
    Executive Director
    National Association for Gun Rights


    P.S. Your gun rights are in peril again. If H.R. 2159, the Disarming American Citizens Act, passes, anti-gun zealot Eric Holder could strip you of your right to keep and bear arms for something as simple as a pro-gun bumper sticker.

    Worse, the bill allows Holder to withhold evidence in the event of a court case, and demands that the courts rely on Holder’s personally “redacted” versions of whatever evidence he claims to have.

    Your generous contribution of $50, $100, $150 or $200 will help the National Association for Gun Rights mobilize gun owners to fight this outrageous gun control measure.

    I must have your help if I’m going to defeat this. Please donate today!

    This is beginning to sound more and more like Revelations coming to pass. How long will it be before we need to have the "mark" before we can do anything?
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    This is exactly the kind of thing I was contemplating on another thread where people said they were ok with denying firearms to convicted (and released) felons. That's fine as long as they don't make us all felons, which is what they're attempting to do.

    A lot sooner than anyone thinks. But, the "we" that will be required to take the "mark" will be those that are Left Behind. The "mark" is subject to the Seven Years of Tribulation. If you're "truly" Born Again you'll be long gone before the Tribulation begins. Remember Jesus said, "FEAR NOT".

    It is amazing how they give these bills such innocent sounding names.

    “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009.”

    "Employee Free Choice Act"

    They all sound so warm and fuzzy.

    AMEN my friend! Everyone remember that the church is not mentioned again after Chapter 3 of Revelation, indicating that the church is GONE, raptured away to be with the Lord Jesus. Praise the Lord of Hosts!

    I hope you are right about the church being gone before the tribulation however the more I study scripture I just do not see it. If Christians are here for at least part of it and as I have said I think they will be then I am afraid that a lot of Christians that are not well grounded in their faith will have a problem. Many Christians have put more faith in an event i.e. the "rapture" than Christ himself.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7
