We Just Gave More Than We "Should"
And we hope you stretch, as well.

January 27, 2001

With less than one month's worth of money in our own bank account, and with hundreds of raffle tickets yet unsold in our own fundraising efforts, we just gave $500 to another gun rights group. We also call upon all gun rights groups and individual citizens to show the same level of commitment to this most worthy cause. ~~


Pro Gun Lawsuits in Jeopardy
If we each just sent one dollar...

From the Civil Liberties Defense Foundation

January 26, 2001

This Lawsuit is IMPORTANT !!!  Click Here !!

CLDF Supporters,

January marks the one year anniversary of the Civil Liberties Defense Foundation. CLDF was formed to educate and litigate on behalf of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. We chose as our initial endeavor a lawsuit against 31 cities that have been trying since 1998 to bankrupt the gun industry and destroy our right to keep and bear arms.

We were confident at the time, that such a lawsuit would garner the support of gun rights organizations, gun stores and gun owners from across the nation and that we would ultimately be successful in eliminating this ominous threat to our freedom. A threat which we predicted would cost upwards of half a million dollars to vanquish.

Since January of 2000, former Senator Jerry Patterson and Representatives Suzanna Hupp, Rick Green, and Bob Turner, have worked tirelessly - traveling to various fundraisers, appearing on numerous talk shows, and speaking to whomever would listen - in an effort to raise awareness and enough money to enable the Foundation to proceed with its lawsuit to protect the Second Amendment.

Despite a lack of support from most gun rights organizations and almost all of the gun stores we contacted, we were able to raise enough money from concerned citizens and incensed patriots like yourselves to finally file the lawsuit on November 16, 2000.

Although raising the money to have the lawsuit researched, drafted, and filed was a significant accomplishment for which we owe you many thanks, we still have not raised enough money to carry us through a lengthy litigation process against 31 cities and the state of New York. For that reason, we have refrained from serving the defendants with the paperwork necessary to proceed with the case. Once we do that, we will be locked-in to a battle we currently don't have the resources to win.

The CLDF Board of Directors has concluded that if we are unable to raise at least $100,000 by the service of process deadline two weeks from now, we will be forced to withdraw the case and live to fight another day. Given the amount of time, resources, and emotion we have committed to this project, we are not pleased with this turn of events.

We are desperately searching for a knight in shining armor to come to the rescue of this lawsuit and our right to keep and bear arms; however, our hope is beginning to fade. We have arranged several meetings with potential benefactors and will do our best over the next couple of weeks to insure that our effort has not been in vain. We need you to do the same. We need you to redouble your efforts to inform people about the seriousness of this issue and the need for the average American to pull his or her head out of the sand and realize what must be done to preserve our liberty. What needs to be done costs money and there is simply no away around that fact; we wish there was.

Remember - freedom is not free, nor is justice cheap.

We need your help to continue this fight.

Because of the the severe shortage of time, we need you and those you contact, to visit our website at and make a donation online. We simply cannot proceed without your help and support.

It doesn't require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires to people's minds. Samuel Adams American Patriot
