Become a Monthly Texas Gun Rights Donor

June 8, 2023

A message from Dudley Brown, President of National Association for Gun Rights

When I first helped launch Texas Gun Rights in Texas over a decade ago there was A LOT of work to do.

No open carry.

No campus carry.

No constitutional carry.

Hotels and apartment complexes could prohibit firearms.

The list goes on and on…

Since Chris McNutt took over at Texas Gun Rights, all of this has been REVERSED (with the help of countless pro-gun Texans).

With Texas being the primary destination of the great California Exodus, I fear all of this hard work may be undone.

That’s why I’m hoping you will read Chris’s message below and consider becoming a monthly donor to Texas Gun Rights.

Without ammunition, a firearm is merely a paperweight.

And without proper funding, Texas Gun Rights will not be effective against the onslaught of anti-gun voices in the Lone Star State.

Monthly donations help cover the day-to-day operational expenses, so all other money raised through mail, email, text messages and fundraisers can go directly to defend your rights as guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

You can read Chris’s e-mail below to see how Californians wreaked havoc on my home state of Colorado.

Thank you for everything you do.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown

Pro-gun Texan,

It is no secret Californians have been moving to Texas in droves over the past decade.

To those who fled to our great state seeking a better life — away from the heavy-handed, anti-gun grip of Gavin Newsome — we welcome you.

But to those who wish to transform Texas into something resembling what you left, we have a saying for you: “Don’t California my Texas!”

If you need to see what type of disastrous consequences a liberal exodus can have on Texas, you must look no further than Colorado.

Once a pro-gun, shining beacon for the rest of the country — with permitless open carry laws, and few “gun free” zones, Colorado is now a gun control haven… and it started with “common sense” proposals from woke California transplants.

First, the Colorado legislature passed universal background checks in 2013, and they made purchasers pay for them.

Then, they limited magazine ammo to 15 rounds.

Of course, that wasn’t enough, so they passed so-called “Red Flag Laws,” which allow you to report someone who owns a firearm, and then the state can legally take the gun away from that person… without due process and without any crime being committed.

When “red flag” laws failed to deliver the results gun grabbers promised, they decided to give local governments authority to make a patchwork of gun control laws across the state by dismantling state pre-emption laws.

Then, for good measure, they banned open carry at polling places, leaving Colorado voters defenseless at their voting precinct.

They were told these were “common sense” solutions that were already law in places like California.

Fast forward to today’s Colorado – the robbery rate has increased 25%, the rate of aggravated assaults has increased by 45%, and (this is the really shocking number) the murder rate has increased 62.3%.

Translation: Gun Control has failed Colorado miserably.

With a renewed mass exodus of Californians into Texas, we must be vigilant and NEVER allow this to become the fate of Texas.

It is more important than ever for you to jump in on the fight for our Second Amendment by becoming a monthly donor to TXGR.

Thanks to Texas Gun Rights members and supporters, TXGR led the ten year fight for Constitutional Carry and finally WON in 2021.

Sadly, many “leaders” in the Republican establishment believe their job is “done.”

In fact, instead of expanding upon the pro-gun midterm victories of 2022, the legislature REFUSED to ban “red flag laws,” expand Constitutional Carry, repeal “gun free” slaughterhouse zones, and pass a true Second Amendment Preservation Act that would penalize federal and state agencies from implementing Biden gun control in Texas.

Instead, they chose to codify parts of Biden’s gun control from the summer of 2022 into law by dumping tens of thousands of juvenile mental health records into the NICS Gun Ban Registry… even if they were non-violent, and had no criminal record.

This draconian policy only inches Texas closer towards Biden’s goal of Universal Gun Registration… and this was done with REPUBLICANS in charge.

That’s why Texas Gun Rights is committed to fighting for your rights — and holding politicians in BOTH parties accountable for their anti-gun actions.

We keep you informed.

We fight for you at the State Capitol.

We host events for gun rights advocates to network and get to know each other better.

We are even launching a legal foundation to defend you in the courts.

This is what your money is going towards.

Monthly contributions allow us to have better financial forecasts so we can be well-equipped to respond to ANY threat at a moment’s notice.

In fact, steady monthly donations allowed Texas Gun Rights to defeat a Military-Age Gun Ban and defeat an outright Universal Gun Registration scheme in 2023.

Monthly donors paved the way for TXGR’s organizing of nearly 27,000 emails to elected officials in Austin, more than 30,000 petitions signed opposing more gun control in Texas, and countless phone calls made to legislative offices.

That’s the power of grassroots activism. Those are the kinds of results you get when you become a monthly donor.

So, with that being said, can I ask you to become a monthly donor to TXGR today?

Thank you for fighting for our rights!

For Texas and Liberty,

Chris McNutt
President
Texas Gun Rights
