One More Push to End the Clinton Gun Ban

Thursday, September 9, 2004

With only four days to go before the September 13th expiration of the
1994 Clinton gun ban, anti-gun activists across the nation are making a
last stand to re-enact this ineffective legislation. But now time is
running out. Congress is only in session three more days before the
sunset, and because time is short, anti-gunners will be redoubling their
efforts to extend the ban.

Originally enacted in 1994, the Clinton crime bill banned gun ownership
by law-abiding citizens as the solution to violent crime. But anti-gun
politicians were only able to pass the portion of the law banning
military-style semi-automatic firearms after agreeing to "sunset" the
ban in a decade.

Proponents of the ban have not been able to offer a shred of evidence
over ten years that the Clinton gun ban has reduced crime. The National
Institute of Justice (NIJ) commissioned an independent study that
concluded, "We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation`s
recent drop in gun violence. And, indeed, there has been no discernible
reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence." Even one
extremist gun ban group, the Violence Policy Center, has admitted that
continuing the ban will not "make one whit of difference one way or
another . . . if it doesn`t pass, it doesn`t pass." (National Public
Radio, 3/11/2004)

Since the gun banners are trying now to persuade Members of Congress to
renew the Clinton Gun Ban, we ask you to call, fax and e-mail your
Representative today. Urge your Member of Congress to publicly oppose
renewal of the ban and instead to support legislation that will actually
remove violent criminals from America`s streets. Please urge your
family, friends and fellow hunters and shooters to do the same. Help
dismantle part of the anti-gun Clinton legacy by acting today!
