You Can Actually Kill a Terrible National Gun Control Law
May 13, 2003
KeepAndBearArms.com -- In 1994 Bill Clinton and the Democrats pushed
through an unconstitutional ban on a random list of semi-automatic rifles that
they (mendaciously) called “assault weapons,” thus setting a terrible precedent:
they can add ANY GUN to that list, including YOURS.
And don’t worry, the Democrats eventually WILL add your gun to that list. Don’t
believe it? Consider this: the Democrats banned the manufacture, sale, and
import of ALL such guns in the entire state of California three years ago.
And that same Clinton/Democrat ’94 ban says that you’re too DANGEROUS or STUPID
or WORTHLESS to own a rifle or pistol magazine holding more than 10 rounds. It
BANNED new production or import of the normal-capacity magazines we’ve been
using all our lives.
Oh yeah – the Democrats think that cops and other law-enforcement personnel are
better than you, and that their lives are worth more than yours. They said this
by making cops immune to the ban, allowing police to get normal capacity mags,
not limited-capacity like yours. This means the ban doesn’t affect the armed
guards watching over Ted Kennedy and Dianne Feinstein, either. They have full
capacity magazines in their guns.
A QUESTION FOR YOU
Do you want to HELP WIPE OUT the Clinton ban on so-called "assault" weapons and
Good! Sorry, but you can’t do it telepathically or by whining or griping to your
friends. You’ll have to spend a few minutes. But you’ll never break a sweat.
It’s utterly simple. Not FUN, but it can be done calmly, sitting down in a
comfortable chair with a soft drink in one hand, listening to talk radio in the
background. You can handle it, believe me.
THE FACTS, JACK
PHONE CALLS AND LETTERS/POSTCARDS are how politicians keep their finger on our
pulse. They figure if you’ll take a few minutes and spend a couple of bucks for
long-distance calls or postage, you’re SERIOUS about your message.
No, there’s no way to measure the influence of cards and calls, but Congressmen
continually tell us this is how they know what issues to support or not to
support. I tend to believe them on this matter, if nothing else. Remember, their
goal is NOT to protect the Constitution – except perhaps Ron Paul of Texas – but
to get RE-ELECTED. Listening to their most active and vocal constituents is how
they do it.
By the way, they DON’T REALLY CARE about emails, so I’m not going to bother
giving email addresses. Emails are too easy to send, and don’t represent
commitment and deep feeling on the part of constituents or party members. Emails
come in by the millions, are responded to automatically by a robot and then
dumped. Don’t waste your time.
HERE YOU GO – LAID RIGHT IN YOUR LAP
First, call at least TWO of the numbers
When they answer, tell them you want to leave a comment.
They’ll say “Sure, go ahead.”
Just something like “If the Clinton gun and magazine ban is renewed, I will not
support/vote for (Bush, Republican Party, etc).” No need to get emotional
or speak volumes.
The phone handler on the other end will mark your comment on their issues list
and say “Thank you,” and you’re done.
It’s easy. I’ve done it many, many times. I’m going to do it again a few more
times in the coming months.
By the way, for all you DEMOCRATS: Your party is pushing hard, and consistently
- at both the state and federal levels - to completely disarm Americans. You may
not give a damn about that, but you should be aware of it.
