Fighting Feinstein And The Clinton Gun Ban

Saturday, July 3, 2004

Congress will be on its Summer District Work Period from July 26, through September 3. That means that the gun-banners have approximately three weeks left during which to push "assault weapons" legislation if they hope to get a vote before the September 13, "sunset" date. With the gun prohibitionists working vigorously to get Congress to extend and expand this ban, over the next few weeks we must remain extremely vigilant against any attempt by the anti-gunners to reauthorize this legislation. Already, Representative Michael Castle (R-Del.), and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have introduced bills to do just that--H.R. 3831 and S. 2498, respectively. And, in a June 28, San Francisco Chronicle article about her continued attempts to renew the ban, Senator Feinstein said, "I really believe passionately in this. I`m not going to give up."

Obviously, our opponents will continue to work at every turn to try and accomplish their anti-gun goals. At this time, more than ever, it is critical that we remain proactive! Please visit NRA-ILA`s website-- www.ClintonGunBan.com --to learn the facts about this debate. And please continue to forward this website to others who need to know both the history and the truth about this issue. Then, please immediately contact your Representative and Senators and urge them to oppose H.R. 3831 and S. 2498, and any other legislation seeking to extend the so-called "assault weapons" ban.

Commenting further on the ban`s renewal, Feinstein concluded, "It`s only the sheer power of the gun lobby that stands in the way." At least she`s right about that. You, our members, are the "power of the gun lobby." You, ultimately, are the ones who can "stand in the way" of "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in!" Please be sure to contact your legislators today!
