The President is undermining the support of his base, and therefore risking 2020, by backing gun control measures...

Previously, when President Trump expressed support for gun control measures in the emotional wake of tragedy, he quickly learned that his base would not follow him down that road. The reasonable, freedom-loving American people, i.e. Trump's base, are not willing to sacrifice the Second Amendment for the false security of feel-good measures. American gun owners and other supporters of the Bill of Rights know that these measures are not benign, that they are designed by the left to blossom into universal gun registries, dystopian pre-crime courts, and all-out gun bans.
Trump's History of Wisdom
Fortunately, the President is a smart guy who respects the voices he hears from real America. Except for the ill-advised bump stock ban, when he started down the pop-culture-approved path of gun control in the past, Trump ultimately responded to his base, which admonished him to return to the narrow path. This means, if you and other gun owners make it clear to Mr. Trump, once again, that we will not accept gun control, even from him, he will surely respond appropriately.
Ripple Effect Risks 2020
If the President does not change course on gun control, gun rights will not only be in danger for the moment, but the danger will be ever-increasing due to the ripple effect of a Trump failure. After a Trump capitulation, the greatest dangers come in the shape of 2020 losses due to the failure of the White House and other Republicans to hold the line. Rejection of his base could cost Trump and other Republicans the Senate, dashing any hopes of recovering the House, and possibly sending a new, rabidly anti-gun resident to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 
Take Action: Remind the President 
Fortunately, we know that if we speak up the President will probably listen, just as he has in the past. Therefore, GRNC asks that your please contact Mr. Trump and remind him why gun control is a (very, very) bad idea for an awful lot of reasons: citizen safety, sovereignty of the people, upholding the supreme law of the land, and of course, winning elections to keep anti-gun politicians from wresting power from the people. Below, see how you can easily send a message by email and by phone to the White House.





  • EMAIL & PHONE PRESIDENT TRUMP: Send a message using the form at this link: and deliver the copy/paste message provided below under 'Deliver This Message.'   (See below to phone the President)

  • PHONE THE PRESIDENT Use this number: 202-456-1111 and deliver the suggested phone message provided below.
Hello, I am calling to remind President Trump that his voting base, the reasonable, freedom-loving American people, will not accept gun control, regardless of who it comes from, and I must insist that the President back away from his flirtation with gun control immediately. It is my belief that Mr. Trump's current openness to these un-American policies has real potential to cost him and congressional Republicans their positions in 2020, which would hand the country over to left-wing zealots. That would be a disaster. Please tell the President to help the country avoid disaster by pivoting away from gun control immediately. Thank you.

Suggested Subject: "Salvage Your Base: Say NO to Gun Control"  

Dear Mr. President,

I am writing to remind you that citizens like me, the reasonable, freedom-loving Americans in your voting base, will not accept gun control, regardless of who it comes from. For this reason, I must insist that you immediately back away from your current flirtation with gun control.

It is my sincere belief that your current openness to these un-American policies will turn your base away from you, and have real potential to cost you and congressional Republicans your positions in 2020. This would hand the country over to left-wing zealots, and that would be an absolute disaster.

Mr. President, you must help the country avoid disaster by immediately pivoting away from gun control, and instead stand firm for the Bill of Rights. I will be monitoring your actions on this important matter through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.
