    Go to the link above (www.gunowners.org/activism.htm) and send emails to your representatives. It takes maybe 3 minutes, and it can definitely mean something.

    Their system is totally automated.. just punch in your zip code & it lists everyone you can send the email to. Just select to send them an email, then pick the pre-written one, add your name & info, and fire it off.

    No excuses. If you fail to speak up now, chances are you won't be able to speak up in the future.

    To make it as short as possible, You know how when you purchase a firearm at a store you have to fill out the yellow 4473 form? The shops keep them on file, under this proposition they would all be collected by the govt and put on file so they know who owns guns and what they own.

    I sent out the form letters from the GOA site but unfortunently im in NY, I doubt Hitlery or Schumey will be against this. I've bought alot of stuff face to face no papertrail there, but only for some of my rifles, in NY all handguns have to be registered anyway.

    To elaborate more, the FBI, or any other government agency, would be privy to the information on the 4473, without having to go through the legal system and subpoena the documents. This means that, at any time, they can know who has what & where they have it.

    I think our best hope right now can be that, if Hillary runs in '08, she gets defeated with the quickness..

    Correct, but this will be used as a first step to end private transactions with no paperwork

    Because nobody has any right to know what you own or how many until you commit a felony. A better way to phrase that would be "You've got nothing to hide, so what business do they have knowing what you own?"

    Why should the government know what you own and how many of it? And yes, this is a precursor to limitations on who can buy what & how many, as well as an attempt to phase out private transactions with no paper trail.

    Nothing to hide or not, you shouldn't be subjected to an invasion of privacy, unless you've commited a felony.

    Because the first tool used by governments to confiscate weapons has been the registration records on file.

    You should oppose the entire PA because it is a giant pile of shit that erodes ALL of our constitutional liberties, not just the 2nd amendment

    are you kidding me?

    :ugh:

    do you have any idea why the 2nd amendment exists? thats basically national gun registration! you cant get any worse than that.. you might as well bend over and tell the government to put it where they want to
