Colorado -(Ammoland.com)- You might think that with Republicans in control of the US House of Representatives there would be no way ANY gun control legislation could reach the floor.
But sadly we are already beginning to see so-called conservative champions folding to pressure from the anti-gun media to sell-out gun owners.
Former Vice Presidential candidate, Congressman Paul Ryan, has stated that he would support legislation that bans private sales at gun shows.
In the House, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, along with the help of Rep. Scott Rigell (VA), Patrick Meehan (PA) and others, have stated openly that they will work together with anti-gun Democrats from Maryland and New York to tighten restrictions on private firearms sales and expand background checks.
Possibly even more upsetting has been Senator Tom Coburns willingness to work alongside anti-gunner Chuck Schumer (NY) to propose bi-partisananti-gun legislation in the Senate.
Make no mistake, so-called expansion of background checks is little more than a blatant attempt by anti-gunners to register all firearms and gun owners in America.
That is why Representatives Steve Stockman (TX-36) and Paul Broun (GA-10) have drafted a letter to Speaker Boehner and the Republican leadership urging them to require the support of the majority of Republican members in the House before bringing any anti-gun bills to the floor.
This so-called Hastert Rule would mean that 117 Republicans would have to support a particular bill before it had any chance of getting a floor vote, not just the support of the anti-gun elitist in leadership.
The list goes on and on.

That is why I am asking you to ask your Congressman to openly support the Stockman-Broun letter to Speaker Boehner. Call today!
Tell them that if they really support your rights then you need to see action!
Signing the Stockman-Broun letter is a good first step in signifying support for the Second Amendment
Unless there’s more to the story, Ryan has definitely and permanently lost important WI talk show hostess Vicki McKenna, and possibly Mark Belling, as well.
Paul Ryan is hugely disappointing. I begin to see why Romney chose him.
If the R’s in the House cave on gun control, the R party is finished. Period.
IS IT TIME?
Nope. Many of us were under no such illusion.
The Republican hacks are another story, however. They will continue to deny reality right up until they face the gulag.
Republicans need to stop donating to conservative and tea party pacs and start hiring private detectives to dig up the secrets of Boner, Cantor and McCarthy, and destroy them with it. They are no less Progressive enemies of American than Obama.
Washington Republicans Folding Under The Pressure to _______, ___________, and of course ___________.
You can cut-and-paste above for any issue.
It is time.
It is time.
Monstrous amounts of money are most likely promised by some anti-Second-Amendment constituents, who support both political parties.
I tried to like Ryan, but there was always something off about the guy .. I never really warmed to him although he was infinitely better than Romney. Now he’s revealed himself to be just another DC hack, not a shock.
Come on, y'all. Why are all of you so late to this arrangement. The sellout began as soon as Reagan left. That was obvious to me after 2 yrs of Bush Sr. You all will bitch but NOTHING is going to change for the better. None of you are ready for a full out revolt, which is the ONLY outcome that can make this change. Remember, you are the enemy & they have been bought out by the elites. So suck it up or determine if this is where one should live out his life.
