NRA Should Join Our Petition

From: "Vincent Beall" <>
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2002 17:30:03 -0800

Dear Mr.Baker,

I live in Oklahoma, hunt rabbits, am licensed to carry, am a NRA member, and a gun rights activist. I'm e-mailing to ask you to address a situation that I find intolerable. A Petition for Enforcement Of The Second Amendment is at and has been circulated throughout the country and reportedly has some 12,000 signatures on it.

Why has my NRA not picked up this Petition and helped get signatures on it? This Petition is well written and doable. If NRA would include this Petition in our magazines, with 1 signature sheet, asking members to sign and get 4 of their nonmember friends to sign, 4.2 million times 5 equals about 20 million signatures.

Would AG Ashcroft ignore 20 million of us? Maybe. But at least you could say we tried. Are we becoming a politically correct organization? With thousands of new gun buyers, enrollment in gun classes up, wacko anti-freedom organizations laying off staff, it's time to be more aggressive, not to be nice.

We are the mighty NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA, and I think it is time for my NRA leaders to by God start acting like it again. Please don't tell me NRA has decided to remain neutral on this matter. ''Neutral'' on the Second Amendment? Please take this letter under consideration, Mr. Baker. NRA should do everything we can to defend the 2nd Amendment.


Vincent W.Beall

[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them.
