Final Countdown Has Begun On Clinton Gun Ban

Friday, September 3, 2004

Take Nothing For Granted!!!!

With Congress set to come back from its Summer District Work Period on September 7, only a handful of legislative days remain before the Clinton gun ban is due to expire on September 13.

With time running out, two things are certain:

  1. The anti-gunners will re-double their efforts to expand and extend the ban (in fact, next week, the Brady Campaign will once again roll out its typical and ongoing dog-and-pony PR show to blame inanimate objects for the acts of criminals) , and
  2. we can not take anything for granted!

We have come too far in the past 10 years not to pull out all the stops in the next week and a half to ensure that this ban expires as Congress intended, and becomes nothing more than a sad footnote in America`s history.

Therefore, we are once again urging you to keep the heat on your lawmakers to ensure they know that their voting constituents do not want to see this ban extended even one second longer than its scheduled demise on September 13.

Once again, please visit NRA-ILA`s website —http://www.clintongunban.com/ —to have all the facts about this debate. And even if you`ve done so before, please forward this website to others who need to know both the history and the truth about this issue. Then, as you have been doing, please immediately contact your U.S. Representative and your U.S. Senators and urge them to oppose any legislation seeking to extend the Clinton gun ban.

You can find contact information for your elected officials by using the "Write Your
Representatives"
tool or you can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121.

Working together in these last few legislative days before September 13, we can ensure that our mutual and tireless efforts over the past decade pay off with the abolition of Bill Clinton`s repressive gun ban!
