URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT!!! - U.S. Senate Could Vote on Gun Show Language this Week

Tuesday, May 1, 2001

CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATOR TODAY TO PROTECT YOUR GUN RIGHTS

Anti-gunners are about to launch another attack on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms! When the U.S. Senate starts debate on education legislation, enemies of the Second Amendment are planning to hijack the education bill by offering anti-gun amendments -- to register guns, license gun owners, effectively ban gun shows, and/or mandate the use of gun locks -- in another shameless attempt to exploit the recent anniversary of the tragedy at Columbine.

Right now, the biggest threat to our rights is S. 767, by anti-gun Senator Jack Reed (D-R.I.) S. 767 is Reed`s version of the Lautenberg legislation that sought to end gun shows as we know them today. The original Lautenberg bill passed the Senate a few weeks after the Columbine attack by a vote of 51-50 -- with then-Vice President Al Gore casting the tie-breaking vote. Tell your Senators to oppose adding S. 767 to the education bill!

We also expect that U.S. Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) will soon introduce their "compromise" gun show legislation. While this bill has not yet been introduced, we expect it will be an unworkable "middle ground" bill that will still provide for a waiting period on gun purchases of as long as five days, and will still allow the retention of records on gun purchases by law-abiding citizens. Tell your Senators to oppose adding the McCain-Lieberman "compromise" to the education bill!

Your U.S. Senators need to hear from you TODAY. It is critical that you call, e-mail, and write your U.S. Senator today to urge them to oppose gun control amendments to the education bill!

Tell your Senators that registration and waiting periods that are longer than gun shows are unacceptable! Contact your U.S. Senator today, using our "Write Your Reps" tool, to protect our Second Amendment rights!
