APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

"Give Them Back"

Monday, October 23, 2006

As you’ve read in previous Grassroots Alerts, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, law-abiding citizens had their lawfully owned firearms confiscated by local officials!  When citizens needed protection the most, they were stripped of their right to self-defense.  As you’ve also read, President Bush recently signed NRA-backed legislation to ensure such travesties are never repeated.

NRA has launched a new web site--http://www.givethemback.com/--with shocking video coverage of New Orleans gun confiscations that you’ll never see on ABC, CBS, or NBC. This site gives gun owners a stark and brutal reminder of why we must defend our firearm freedoms with passion and vigilance, in Congress, in state legislatures, in the courts…AND ON ELECTION DAY.

This site makes it clear why gun owners can never, ever sit on the sidelines during an election, and serves as a slap-in-the-face wake up call for every gun owner who thinks anti-gun politicians don’t have the nerve or the will to confiscate our guns.  And why they must be defeated before they ever get their hands on power!

Please be sure to visit http://www.givethemback.com/ today, and forward the link to your friends, family, and fellow gun owners.  Remember what happened in New Orleans, and let your voice be heard on Election Day--Vote Freedom First on November 7!  With your help, we’re going to make the first time in New Orleans the LAST time in America.
