Mitch McConnell Campaign Email: Obama Wants To Take Your Guns

January 21, 2013 4:47 a.m.

Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign sent an email to supporters on Sunday warning that President Barack Obama and “[t]he gun-grabbers in the Senate are about to launch an all-out-assault on the Second Amendment.” 

The email, signed by McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton, asks supporters to sign a “Defense of the Second Amendment pledge.” 

From the email:

The gun-grabbers are in full battle mode. And they are serious.

What’s at stake?

There are almost too many schemes to list. But President Obama’s worst center around:

-The Feinstein Gun Ban, which will criminalize firearms by how they look.
-A thinly-veiled national gun registration scheme hidden under the guise of “background checks” to ensure federal government minders gain every bureaucratic tool they need for full-scale confiscation.
-An outright BAN on magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
-And that’s not even close to the end of it.

23 new Executive Orders.

It is almost hard to believe the sheer breadth and brazenness of this attempt to gut our Constitution.

Well, Mitch McConnell is not going to stand aside.
