Congressman Steve Stockman Targeted by Gun Grabbers!

Statement

A little over fifteen years ago, as a United States Congressman, I was the gun-grabbers' most hated man in America.

Today, it looks like nothing has changed.

You see, I'm running to return to Congress in Texas' newly-created 36th District. And the gun control crowd is once again going all-out to defeat me -- just like they did when I was Handgun Control, Inc.'s number-one national target for defeat in 1996.

That's why I'm counting on the help of Second Amendment supporters just like you from all over the country to take on the gun-grabbers and get back to Washington, D.C.

I am getting a boost from Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation, NRA Board Member Ted Nugent, Dudley Brown of the National Association for Gun Rights and Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America -- the three of them personally endorse me -- but…

…without your help, I'll be a sitting duck.

But I can promise you, if I'm elected, I'll pick up exactly where I left off -- being anti-gun activist Sarah Brady's biggest problem in Congress.

The fact is, shortly after being sworn into Congress, I established myself not just as a solid pro-gun vote, but as a national pro-gun hero, introducing legislation to;

*** REPEAL the unconstitutional Brady Bill, which sets up the entire federal infrastructure necessary for full-scale national gun registration;

*** PROTECT gun dealers from anti-gun BATFE militants seeking to use even the most minor paperwork errors as an excuse to SHUT DOWN law-abiding gun store owners;

*** REPEAL Bill Clinton's so-called "Assault Weapons" Ban, which banned an entire class of firearms based upon little more than looking "scary."

And when leaders of my own Republican Party REFUSED to take action on my bill to repeal the Clinton Ban, I didn't take no for an answer.

Instead, I introduced legislation to FORCE the Assault Weapons Ban Repeal Bill out of committee and onto the House floor for a vote.

Those actions and others earned me one of the few A+ ratings Gun Owners of America handed out that Congress.

I'm proud of that rating. I'm proud to say my past races been endorsed by Gun Owners of America and the National Rifle Association, as well.

And I'm proud to say there's not another Congressional candidate in the country that gets under the gun-grabbers' skin more than I do.

You see, I don't believe in backing down when it comes to our gun rights. I believe in taking the FIGHT straight to the gun-grabbers.

Sadly, many politicians love to talk a good game on the campaign trail, but then refuse to lift a finger for our Second Amendment rights once elected.
Sometimes I think they care more about getting a nice article written about them in the New York Times than in taking their oaths of office seriously!

They don't understand -- whether its last year's Arizona tragedy or the more recent incident in Florida -- the national media has one rule they always abide by:

Ignore the facts and blame the guns.

To them, the culprits are never the real criminals. They're law-abiding gun owners. They're conservatives.

But when President Obama's administration has the sheer AUDACITY to illegally funnel thousands of rifles to bloodthirsty drug-running Mexican gangs -- just to drum up an "excuse" to crack down on law-abiding American gun owners -- he gets
a pass!

Where was the media's outrage when Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed by these Mexican gangs -- with a gun BATFE agents virtually placed in their hands?

Do you ever click on the evening news, and wish that just once a pro-gun, pro-Constitution conservative would put anti-gun media pundits in their place?

Do you wish there was a Member of Congress you could count on -- not only to vote right EVERY TIME -- but also LEAD the fight for restoring our gun rights?

Well, I'm running to represent the good people of Texas -- and Second Amendment supporters all over the country.

If elected to Congress, you can count on me to;

>>> Reintroduce legislation repealing the Brady Bill, and stand up to members of my own party to force a vote if necessary;

>>> Cut funding for and crack down on the out-of-control BATFE. Our nation is over $15.6 TRILLION in debt. Frankly, I can think of few better places to start cutting spending than the BATFE;

>>> Fight the United Nations' so-called "Small Arms Treaty," which is nothing more than a gun control scheme designed to register, ban and confiscate firearms on an international scale;

>>> Defeat any attempt to pass a new so-called "Assault Weapons" Ban and other gun control schemes like higher taxes on ammo or outright bans, "one-gun-a-month" or efforts by the Attorney General Eric Holder to create a national "Cannot Buy" Registry.

So won't you agree to a generous contribution to my campaign to help me take the fight for our Second Amendment rights to Congress?

As I mentioned, the anti-gun crowd is going all-out to defeat me.

With Texas' Primary rapidly approaching, I expect the gun-grabbers to empty their pockets to try to sink my campaign.

They don't care which one of my Republican opponents wins -- just so long as it isn't me.

For the gun-grabbers, this is personal.

They hate the fact I've never been afraid to call them out as political opportunists who seek to "cash in" on tragedy to further their outrageous agenda.

So I'm depending on the support of good folks like you to defeat the gun-grabbers and get back to Congress.

Could you go here to chip in $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $100 or even $2500?

Of course, the maximum under federal law is $2,500 or $5,000 per couple. If you could afford that much, I'd be extremely grateful.

But all I ask is that you please agree to the most generous contribution you can possibly afford.

I'm counting on your help to get back to Congress and continue the fight for the millions of gun owners all across this great nation.

So please go here rush me your most generous contribution of $10 or more TODAY.

Sincerely,

Steve Stockman
Republican for Congress

P.S. The gun-grabbers know if I'm sent back to Congress, I'll continue where I left off -- being anti-gun activist Sarah Brady's biggest problem.

They're going all-out to make sure ANYONE but me gets elected to Congress in Texas' newly-created 36th district.

I'm depending on Second Amendment supporters just like you from all over the country to help me fight back
