    Obviously the gun grabbers, having launched their opening assault on Virginia have chosen Texas as their next target. We have won the first battle, but it will not be the last as they fight to turn Texas blue. VCDL has demonstrated the importance of an organized opposition, all gun owners need to stay informed and get behind their state associations for the upcoming struggle.

    Second Amendment supporters won an important victory when Gary Gates won HD 28 election.

    Dear TSRA Supporter:


    Pro-gun forces enjoyed a significant win last month! TSRA-PAC endorsed candidate Gary Gates won an important special election runoff for House District 28, an open seat in the Texas Legislature to represent portions of Fort Bend County.


    TSRA-PAC sent out email alerts, direct mail and ran digital ads to targeted voters in a Get-Out-The-Vote effort which was unprecedented for our organization.


    Opponents of the Second Amendment tried to nationalize this election, pouring in hundreds of thousands of dollars of out-of-state money to back Gates’ opponent Eliz Markowitz, who campaigned on universal background checks, red flag gun confiscation legislation and repeal of campus carry.


    National darlings of the gun control movement Beto O’Rourke and New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg even walked door-to-door in the district for Markowitz.


    THEY LOST BIG.


    Gates trounced Markowitz by 16 percentage points. Though gun control advocates and gun-grabbing politicians failed to lay down a marker in this particular contest, the amount of resources they invested in this race demonstrates their commitment to turn Texas “blue” and make the Lone Star State their next target after Virginia for passing radical restrictions on our rights.

    While there is much to celebrate about the win in District 28, there are very serious challenges that lie ahead in the 2020 elections. Anti-gun politicians are just NINE legislative seats away from taking over the Texas House. And District 28 was a race we should have won, based on the area’s voting history.


    TSRA-PAC will need to be involved in as many as TWENTY state races this fall which are expected to be far more competitive, in order to prevent an anti-gun majority from taking over the Texas House. If we don’t win, universal background checks, red flag legislation, and repeal of campus carry will just be the start of what’s to come!


    Your contribution to TSRA-PAC will help replicate the Get-Out-The-Vote efforts we conducted in District 28 in these other critical contests.


    We can only work with those lawmakers the voters send to Austin. Help us put more pro-Second Amendment supporters in more seats in the Texas Legislature.


    Register to vote. Support pro-gun candidates for state office. And make a donation to TSRA-PAC today!


    Thank you,

    Mike Cox, TSRA Legislative Director



    Regards,
    hps
