Mitch McConnell is very afraid. Not of non-existent "gun grabbers," but of his chances of being reelected. And in a campaign email sent to his constituents soliciting their support, he jammed as much fear and doom as he possibly could.
You and I are literally surrounded. The gun-grabbers in the Senate are about to launch an all-out-assault on the Second Amendment. On your rights. On your freedom.
Just the other night, President Obama urged them to act. And then he went one step further, spelling out the 23 different Executive Orders he will take to get your guns.
My friend, our freedom is under direct assault.
From those who want take your guns. From those who want to shred our Constitution, and as our good in friend Rand Paul from Kentucky says, from those who want to be King.
Let me tell you, Mitch McConnell is ready to lead the fight to protect your rights. Will you stand with Mitch today?
Mitch McConnell, the minority leader of the U.S. Senate, knows the president didn't sign orders to "get your guns" (this email even reflects the language his constituents speak).
Telling your constituents that they are "literally surrounded" and that the president is signing orders to snatch their guns because he wants to be King is not just irresponsible. It's dangerous. And he would like for you to make a small contribution to his campaign today so that he may protect you from the evildoer Obama.
As a Kentucky native, I can tell you beyond any doubt that there are voters in the state who will believe every single word. They may even rush out and buy another gun or two just to be safe. And the next time a routine traffic stop or an unrelated charge results in a dead law enforcement officer, he will have had a hand in fostering the environment that lead to it.
The gun lobby thanks him.
