    Don't Let the Anti's Ram Through The McCarthy Gun Grab

    Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert

    Thursday, September 7, 2006


    Because of the recent Labor Day holiday, you might have missed an
    important alert that GOA sent out on August 29.

    The House Judiciary Committee is getting ready to vote on H.R. 1415
    -- a gun grab bill that was introduced by New York anti-gun liberal
    Carolyn McCarthy (D).

    The anti-gun forces are asking their members to call their
    Representatives in favor of McCarthy's bill, so it's important that
    your Congressman hears from you.

    Moreover, GOA is the only gun lobby on Capitol Hill opposing
    McCarthy's bill -- which is all the more reason that your action is
    crucial!

    1. Please urge your Representative to oppose HR 1415, the McCarthy
    gun grab bill.

    2. Take the action recommended below and then circulate this alert to
    your pro-gun friends and family.

    3. If you need more talking points on the bill, please visit the GOA
    website at http://www.gunowners.org/a082906.htm to read our August 29
    alert.

    You can visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
    http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your Representative a
    pre-written e-mail message. (The system will automatically select
    one of the two messages below, depending on whether your Rep. is a
    member of the Judiciary Committee.) And, you can call your
    Representative toll-free at 1-888-355-3588. The non-toll free number
    is 202-225-3121.

    ----- Pre-written letter for non-committee members -----

    Dear Representative:

    I am very concerned about an anti-gun bill by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy,
    HR 1415. This bill spends nearly $1 billion dollars to further prop
    up the unconstitutional Brady Law, but there is no authority for the
    Federal government to do this under the Second and Tenth Amendments.

    I urge you to OPPOSE H.R. 1415.

    I would appreciate hearing whether you plan to oppose this bill. Gun
    Owners of America will keep me informed about any votes on this
    dangerous measure.

    Sincerely,

    Ugh. The only reason he's elected is because his constituency is like, 12,500, and they're all morans.

    I already sent my congressman a letter about it a week ago or so. It's fucking bullshit. Why would anyone want the govt to be able to hold you under a microscope.

    letters to Congress representatives do jack shit. Congress is probably one of the most corrupt organizations in this country. Term limits are needed. America needs change periodically. They don't give a SHIT about any of us until it comes to needing a vote to stay in office. I mean, fuck, don't you wish you could vote to raise your pay? Who would be against that? Ya ya ya 27th amendment, but if you are a senator it could be not your election year and most of the time incumbents are reelected. fuck.

    You're right but unless a LOT of people start voting from the rooftops nothing will change.
