Back in March, the National Association of gun rights announced the nominees for their first Second Amendment Traitor of the Year award. As NAGR’s President Dudley Brown noted at the time, “Every year, self-proclaimed pro-gun Republicans throw their gun owning constituents under the bus by voting for gun control and gutting pro-gun legislation.”

Those are the kinds of politicians who deserve special recognition for their achievements and NAGR’s nominees were truly an illustrious group who had thrown their support behind a range of gun control industry proposals such as mandatory “safe storage” laws, aftermarket trigger bans, universal registration background checks, and due-process-free “red flag” gun confiscation laws.

If you’d been paying much attention in recent weeks, you could probably tell where the smart money was landing as to the eventual winner. One particular pol had been going above and beyond in his efforts to try to force his anti-gun proposal on a legislature that’s clearly shown no appetite whatsoever for kowtowing to him.

So without further ado, here’s NAGR’s announcement of the winner of their first TOTY award . . .

Over the weekend, the National Association for Gun Rights announced the winner of their first annual Traitor of the Year award at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was named the winner, earning the award following his calling of a special legislative session to try and pass “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws.

Governor Bill Lee has been a vocal supporter of “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation in 2023. “Red Flag” bills call for legally owned firearms to be forcibly confiscated from law-abiding Americans without due process, based on unsubstantiated accusations from disgruntled family members, neighbors, co-workers, and/or current or ex-romantic partners, or roommates.

“There is nothing more traitorous you can do than bend the knee to the gun grabbers by pushing bills to confiscate firearms without due process,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “I cannot think of anyone more deserving to be named Traitor of the Year than Governor Bill Lee after he sold out pro-gun Tennesseans.”

The National Association for Gun Rights is mobilizing to be ready to fight any and all gun control attempts filed in Tennessee during the Special Legislative Session, called to start August 21st.

The National Association for Gun Rights expects all pro-gun members of the Tennessee House and Senate to join us in opposing this type of gun confiscation.

  1. You deserve the Tyranny you allow. The Founding Patriots would be burning the bodies of the enemies of freedom by now.

    • Meanwhile Gun Control zealots get away with calling Gun Owners racists and nazis when History Confirms Gun Control is a racist and nazi based agenda.

      Never mind lee et al the bigger problem is with those supposedly on point defending the Second Amendment who fail to utilize The Truth About Gun Control to sway public opinion. Their failure to Define Gun Control for a gullible public clearly holds the doors open for sneaky Gun Control zealots to set the pace.

      Does anyone believe any History of Gun Control is between the ears of those marching around begging for Gun Control? I have not seen a sign saying, “We know Gun Control is a racist and nazi based agenda but we love it anyway.” IMO…Such an award is far from Center X.

      • Lol go get on that and let me know when you get past the “it couldn’t happen here” automatic response. Gonna take a lot more than your magic words to break the propaganda programming let alone have them explain what is a woman.

        • I would tell her to put her money where her mouth is but she would talk me to death first. She thinks spouting her cut n paste does more than funding gun rights orgs.

      • Yada Yada Yada…Deb. Words get nothing accomplished, but waste oxygen. Even the Founding Patriots understood that.

    • Trump thinking “Whew… that was close.”

      “Take the firearms first, then go to court”

    • So how many have you buried, bootlicker?

      it’s kind of an interesting coincidence how this sort of post ends up being “first post”, almost like some programmed bot is squatting over the site, waiting to crap its nonsense.

      And, in case it matters, the founders actually noncomplied and protested until there were literally troops at their front door.

  2. “…ased on unsubstantiated accusations from disgruntled family members, neighbors, co-workers,…”

    Someone you work with? Yeah, that will never get abused. The same way that a woman would *never* lie about rape… 🙁

    • Never really thought out that women would lie about rape until I had to take reports as an MP. It’s way more common in the military than civilian side but point out that it happens at all and cue the screeching.

  3. This is a well deserved award. But Dudley Brown still has a very long way to go. in order to be a much better supporter of the 2A. I know his history in Colorado. This is very useful. And its a distraction from his own poor 2A past. And there is a similar problem in North Carolina. The NRA wrecked permit less carry in that state.

    Always be wary of the potential of “a third columnist” among you.

  4. Unimpressed with NAGR. Long on talk but have yet to see them accomplish much. They’re fond of attacking straw men much like the worthless NRA.

    FPC is the one to donate to. Help them make their copying machines go full auto.

    • Second Amendment Foundation is very successful at fighting and winning cases against the marxist gun control agenda.

      • Thanks.
        Been a busy few months. Helped move my youngest son halfway across the country.
        Also got back into motorcycling after 3 decades away. Picked up a Ducati DesertX ADV bike in mid May and already have over 1k miles on it. Lots of lakes, fire roads, power line roads and trails to explore in my area of Texas.
        Will be doing a run up to Colorado (Pike’s Peak) late summer.

  5. In the wake of the Dayton attack, Trump also called for “red flag” laws to prevent further tragedies.

    The laws would allow guns to be removed from those who may be a danger to themselves and others.

    “We must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms, and that, if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process,” Trump said in August 2019. “That is why I have called for red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders.”

  6. I have written to every presidential and senatorial candidate who has asked me for money to tell me what their position is on the Second Amendment. Thundering silence. I will have to writ to Senator Kennedy and see if he replies. Never thought there would ever be a possibility I might vote for a Kennedy for public office but that possibility is flitting through my mind presently

  7. I had my money on NSSF spokesorifice Lawrence Keane for his willingness to throw some of the gun industry’s customers under the bus with his favorite redflag laws and “safe” storage requirements in order to maximize industry profits over everyone’s maximum RKBA. In my book a traitor within is 10x worse than any known avowed enemy who at least owns up to fighting for total civilian disarmament. Keane is just another Busse IMHO. Every inch they move the chains puts them that much closer to winning on downs and crawling towards their ultimate end zone.
