Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 7, is Election Day 2006! That's the day when all of our hard work will pay off, as NRA members and gun owners across America go to the polls to elect all 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 33 U.S. Senators, 36 Governors, and thousands of state and local officials.
For months now, we've listened to the anti-gun media elite broadcast a steady message that freedom-first voters are discouraged over a variety of issues and will sit out these elections. The goal is to fool pro-gun voters into believing their rights aren't at risk. That is a lie -- our rights hang in the balance on November 7.
Sarah Brady, the dean of anti-gun lobbyists, calls Election Day 2006 "the opportunity we've been waiting for." By that she means the takeover of Congress by those who would eliminate our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Brady's fellow gun banners such as John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi and John Conyers -- all F-rated by NRA-PVF -- are confident that gun owners won't vote, and that anti-gunners will soon be setting the legislative agenda in the U.S. Congress.
Only you, your family members, friends and neighbors can protect our hard fought victories in past elections with your votes on November 7.
Please make sure you vote tomorrow and take your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to the polls with you. If you have already voted early or via absentee ballot, please volunteer some time to the Election Day efforts of pro-gun candidates' campaigns in your areas.
For candidate grades and endorsements, or to contact area campaigns or your local NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator to assist tomorrow, please visit www.NRAPVF.org.
Thank you very much for all your efforts. On to victory tomorrow!
Chris W. Cox
NRA-ILA Executive Director
P.S. - Please remember to show your NRA pride by wearing your NRA shooter's cap or NRA T-shirt to the polls!
