Get The Truth About The Clinton Gun Ban

Monday, February 9, 2004

New NRA Web Site Serves as Resource for the Facts

Ten years ago, as part of his omnibus crime bill, Bill Clinton succeeded in convincing a bare majority in Congress that law-abiding Americans could not be trusted to own certain semi-automatic firearms.

On September 13, 2004, the Clinton gun ban will finally expire, and gun prohibitionists are now working to get Congress to extend, and even expand, this ban. The gun banners’ end goal is best summed up as: "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in."

NRA has designed an interesting and informative Web site - ClintonGunBan.com - to serve as a resource for the facts on a debate that is far too often driven and dominated by emotion.

You will notice that there are several features on this Web site, and the "Clinton Gun Ban Story" is the one which provides a thorough historical background and perspective on this very timely issue.

Please add this website as one of your bookmarks and forward it to others who need to know both the history and the truth about this issue. Anti-gun Senators will likely try to amend S. 659/S. 1806 with language to extend and expand the Clinton gun ban. When communicating with your Senators, please urge them to pass S. 659/S. 1806 without amendments. You can find contact information for your Senators using our "Write Your Representatives" tool or by calling (202)224-3121.

Note: Please be patient when loading the "Clinton Gun Ban Story" video and the "Clinton Gun Ban Quiz" as they are large files and may take several minutes on a dial-up connection.
