The matter of gun control – aka population control – has always been one of the pro-liberty side ‘compromising’ while the anti-gunners on the left give up nothing. It is no different this time around except for the fact that Trump and other Republicans are risking 2020 if they surrender... 

Word has it that "Republican" Pat Toomey made more suggestions to President Trump on restricting your liberty and that the President has also met with Joe Manchin on the matter.  Congress is set to return on Monday (9/9) and Mitch McConnell says that he is following Trump’s lead on running gun control to the Senate floor.

It is wrong for Trump to pull an "art-of-the-deal" move with Americans' human rights, especially when doing so will only undermine the support Trump needs from his base. Trump's threat to horse-trade with the Second Amendment simultaneously places your gun rights and Trump's reelection at risk
. 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 ought to respond appropriately (it is certainly hoped).

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 Trump selling out gun owners. 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.

I am calling today with a very simple message: the American people will accept exactly zero gun control, no matter which party it comes from. The Second Amendment is not yours to make an artful deal with, no matter how badly you'd like positive reviews in the left-wing New York Times. Furthermore, if you enact leftist gun control measures, you're risking major losses in 2020---without a doubt. I demand that you NOT capitulate to the left, that you NOT sell out the American people, and that you instead hold the line on the Bill of Rights. If we can't count on you for that, what good are you to us as representatives? Thank you.

Suggested Subject: "Protect the American Promise: NO to Gun Control"  

Dear Mr. President:

Dear Senator: 

I am writing to remind you that the reasonable, freedom-loving Americans in your voting base, will not accept gun control, regardless of which party it comes from. With this in mind, I 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 come at the cost of the White House and great Republican losses in 2020. This would hand the country over to left-wing zealots, and that would be an absolute disaster.

While forcing unconstitutional gun control onto the American voter would render many Republicans un-electable going forward, that consequence pales in comparison to the real damage it would do to the American promise. The Bill of Rights is not for sale, no matter what sort of "great deal" you think you can artfully make with it or how many fawning headlines you believe you'll receive in the left-wing 'New York Times.' Exactly zero gun control is acceptable. Period.

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.
