This organization brought in millions of dollars of outside money to lobby heavily for legislative changes that abrogate the State Constitutional rights of the citizens of my state. When it failed to accomplish this in both regular and special legislative sessions of the legislature, it disseminated mis-, dis-, and mal-information using logical fallacies and flawed statistics while capitalizing on emotional and irrational fear through its advertising and out-of-state “community organizers” to get a spate of initiatives passed outside of the legislative process which have further abrogated the State Constitutional rights of residents in my state. These initiatives, passed years ago, have not had the promised effect on the rates of violent crimes, and have instead only made the continued compliance with the law by law-abiding citizens more costly, more burdensome with a greater level of bureaucracy, and vastly increased the scope of government record-keeping, which further abrogates privacy rights.

The mission statement of this organization is disingenuous and this organization actively works to erode fundamental rights nationwide by preying upon victims of violence.

Please do not stand idly by… this is not a political issue, we MUST find common ground and pass new gun laws in the USA immediately! The Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves since they never wanted Americans to own assault weapons I am sure of that!
