The U.S. Senate just gave this gun control agency a $53 million bonus

This week, the U.S. Senate voted to pass another massive government spending bill (H.R. 3055), by a vote of 84 to 9.

You’ll never guess what’s inside…

That’s right, more funding for gun control.

The bill, drafted by Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, gives a whopping $1.37 billion to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) so they can continue to infringe on your gun rights.

That’s a $53 million increase over last year — effectively a bonus to one of Washington’s most intrusive and anti-gun agencies — and the largest increase the ATF has had since President Obama took office.

As we approach 2020, is this really the alternative Senate Republicans want to give gun owners in the face of gun-banning Democrats?

Do they really think arming a government agency with more power and authority to persecute law-abiding gun owners is the path to victory?

I sure hope not, but sadly many in the beltway consulting bubble have leaders like Mitch McConnell convinced that more wasteful spending on gun control is the least they must do to placate the anti-gun media.

But thankfully, a handful of lawmakers actually had the backbone to oppose the expansion of the gun control legislation.

Take Kentucky Senator (and NAGR member) Rand Paul for example…
Sen. Paul offers an amendment to reduce federal spending on the ATF …Senator Paul not only voted against the bill, he also led the charge on an amendment to this bill that would reduce wasteful spending.

Last week, Sen. Paul forced a vote on his amendment to reduce spending levels in this bill by 2% — effectively the first budget cut for gun grabbing agencies like the ATF in a decade.

While he succeeded in getting 23 of his Republican colleagues to vote with him, 25 others joined with the anti-gun Democrats to secure the blank check for the ATF and other government agencies.

Worse, when Senators get to the table with Nancy Pelosi on the final version of this bill, she’s already demanding much more gun control funding, and she may even try to slip money for “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation programs in there, too.

The ATF shouldn’t be a government agency.

It should be a convenience store!

And if you agree it’s high time that gun grabbing lawmakers stop spending money on anti-gun agencies, stop handing them your tax dollars so they can take more of your gun rights and freedoms away, and I hope you’ll chip-in to the fight now.

Thanks to the activism of NAGR supporters like you, we were able to derail the nomination of an anti-gun nominee to head this failed agency — Chuck Canterbury — due to his long history of endorsing extreme gun controls.

And you can rest assured that your National Association for Gun Rights will continue to oppose every anti-gun bureaucrat and every piece of legislation that would give more power to any anti-gun government agency.

However, we are up against the Gun Control Lobby, anti-gun politicians, the Fake-News media, and their limitless funding.

So, I really hope you will make a personal investment in the preservation of the Second Amendment by donating to the National Association for Gun Rights today.

As always, I thank you for your dedication to the defense of the Second Amendment.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
National Association for Gun Rights

P.S. On Thursday, the U.S. Senate voted 84 to 9 to pass a spending bill that cuts a $53 million bonus check to the increasingly hostile ATF.

Only a few Senators, including NAGR member Rand Paul (R-KY), had the guts to oppose this bill.

As always, NAGR will continue to oppose every anti-gun bureaucrat and every piece of gun control legislation the D.C. Swamp produces.

Which is why I hope you will make your most generous donation to NAGR today, so we can continue our critical fight to defend gun rights in America.
