Fauci calls for more bureaucratic control of gun ownership: "It's a public health issue"

If the last 13 months have taught us anything, it's that our "public health officials" have far too much power. COVID-19 lockdowns, mask mandates, and business closures are only a few of the tyrannies they've imposed, and all they needed was a public health crisis to do it.

We're not saying COVID-19 wasn't a crisis, but what happens when one of our officials claims something is a "health emergency" when it really isn't?

We may be about to find out.

Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN host Dana Bash on "State of the Union" over the weekend that he believes gun-related violence is a "public health issue."

“Myself, as a public health person, I think you can’t run away from that,” he said when asked whether he believes gun violence is a public health emergency. “When you see people getting killed, I mean, in this last month it’s just been horrifying what’s happened. How can you say that’s not a public health issue?”

As we've seen, declaring something a public health emergency gives enormous, unaccountable power to bureaucrats in health departments across the country. It has allowed them to force Americans to stay at home and wear certain medical devices, and their policies have destroyed the livelihoods of countless people. 

If President Joe Biden, following Fauci's advice, declares "gun violence" a "public health crisis," he will be empowered to infringe on the constitutional rights of millions of Americans. Federal and state governments did it with COVID over the last year--why not with gun violence?

If you've been watching Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler on his show, Battlecry!, you know that we have one simple response to Biden's gun control push: Hell no, Joe.

We're not about to let this administration infringe on our constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and we have a plan to end the threat of federal gun control once and for all: an Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states, and under our plan, has the power to limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government.

These amendments can make clear that Washington has no right to control gun ownership and use. They can fortify our rights as described under the Second Amendment and make those rights impervious to attacks from public health bureaucrats.

More broadly, these amendments can shrink the power and jurisdiction of federal bureaucrats who operate outside the will of We the People. They can cut the staffs of some federal agencies and eliminate others altogether. We don't need an alphabet soup of bureaucracies controlling our daily lives, and a Convention of States can shrink the federal government for the first time in 100 years.

Dr. Fauci has no right to attack gun ownership for the sake of "public health." After We the People call and convene the first-ever Article V Convention of States, we'll never have to fear a federal bureaucrat again.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
