I’m copying the text of this letter from No Lawyers – Only Guns and Money, because he received it and I can’t find an original copy from Brady.
It may seem all eyes are on Trump’s Russia drama right now, but the gun industry has stayed laser-focused on profits and pushing the myth that more guns make the country safer.
You and I both know that’s a lie. But their latest attempt to put guns in the hands of every American — no matter how dangerous — is perhaps their most outrageous yet.
Trump and the gun industry have pushed Congress to introduce the Zimmerman Bill — what they call “concealed carry reciprocity.” This dangerous bill would roll back gun safety laws in nearly every state, forcing states with strong state laws to accept anyone with permission or a permit to carry a concealed gun, including criminals like George Zimmerman. This bill would create a system with no standards, no rules and no borders.
If the Zimmerman Bill becomes law, states working hard to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people would be at the mercy of states that do nothing to stop felons, domestic abusers, fugitives and people who are a danger to themselves or others from carrying loaded, hidden guns in public.
This bill already has nearly 200 cosponsors in the House of Representatives. But we can stop it! Sign our petition opposing the Zimmerman Bill today and stand together for a safer country.
Thank you for all you do,
No Lawyers chose to focus on the “Zimmerman” aspect of the letter. Go read his analysis.
I noticed something different.
This bill would create a system with no standards, no rules and no borders.
I thought as a woke progressive I was supposed to be in support of no borders. That’s what my intellectual superiors at HuffPo tell me.
After the Manchester Bombing, Katy Perry (and you know celebrities are never wrong about this) said that the best way to fight terrorism is by having no borders.
So is no borders good or bad?
I guess when it allows terrorists who misunderstand that Islam is a religion of peace or members of a drug dealing street gang with a fondness for gang rape to come into our nation to do us harm, no borders is the moral position.
When it allows law abiding citizens with concealed carry permits to lawfully exercise their Second Amendment rights more freely across this nation, no borders is a dangerous fantasy that must be stopped.
I think I understand now.
