Subject: S 166
According to the Brady E-Action
Response Network (AKA the Brady Bunch), Bill S 166, which would limit handgun
purchases to one per month has been proposed to the State Senate. They (gratuitously)
assert that this bill is needed to stop gun traffickers from purchasing "10,
20, even 100 handguns at a time, which they illegally resell in the secondary
market to ... criminals who would not pass the state background check".
No mention is made as to where they got this information, or why they (having
gotten the information) failed to forward the particulars to the FBI/BATF for
prosecution (either straw purchase violations or dealing without a license).
They also claim that no action is proposed on this bill.
Now, since the Brady Bunch reporting
only touches on truth by accident, I am moved to comment:
1. I hope that no action is
a slight exaggeration. I assume that this proposal has been rejected and the
promoters of the bill have received the same censure they would receive from
proposing any other anti-civil rights bill (such as disallowing blacks from
voting, or declaring a State Church).
2. If not, why? Have you (and they)
not taken an Oath of Office to support and defend the Constitution of the United
States of America and the Constitution of the State of Massachusetts? Do you
not remember the proper purpose of government, as alluded to in the Declaration
of Independence? (Even a slow reader should be able to read all three documents
in a half hour. Start with the Declaration...)
There will be some who will write to you merely hoping that this bill be allowed
to die. I expect more. I expect you to act in defense of American civil rights.
President Bush has declared that Freedom has been attacked and that those who
are not with us, are against us. It appears that some of the enemies of Freedom
are alive and well in the Massachusetts State Senate. I cannot do anything about
that, but you can.
