I got an e-mail this morning from Rand Paul (Senator). I tried to sign but the site errors out. Keep trying.
Dear fellow Patriot,
My jaw hit the floor.
After reading Senator Dianne Feinsteinís new so-called "Assault Weapons" Ban, I can only describe this radical scheme as the effective END of the Second Amendment in America.
The gun-grabbers are going for broke, doing everything they can to "cash in" on the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.
Theyíre targeting EVERYTHING -- rifles, shotguns and even handguns -- and every gun owner and gun purchase is to be catalogued and tracked by the federal government.
Thatís why itís absolutely critical you act IMMEDIATELY.
As youíll see, Iíve enclosed a special Emergency Second Amendment Protection Directive INSISTING your Representative and Senators vote against this radical scheme.
Wonít you please sign it TODAY? Thereís no time to waste.
President Obamaís Administration is announcing it will "push forward quickly" on gun control -- and Vice President Joe Biden is promising it will be a "done deal" in a matter of weeks!
If passed, Feinsteinís Gun Ban would:
*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of 120 specifically named rifles, shotguns and handguns!
*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of ALL firearms with a detachable magazine and at least one "military characteristic" -- which could mean just about anything that makes a gun "look scary;"
*** Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of magazines holding more than 10 rounds;
*** Force owners of ALL "grandfathered" weapons to undergo an intrusive background check and fingerprinting -- treating law-abiding citizens like criminals;
*** Force owners of ALL "grandfathered" weapons to federally register their guns after obtaining a permission slip from local law enforcement showing their guns are not in violation of state or local law.
Thatís right. If you own a $10 magazine thatís more than 10 rounds, youíll have to register it with the BATFE in their National Firearms Registry.
The ban on "transfers" means you and I can forget about ever handing down one of these guns to our kids and grandkids.
Worse, it could mean widows become instant felons if their husbands owned one of these banned magazines or firearms!
And make no mistake, the gun-grabbersí TRUE motives behind gun registration is always the same -- outright gun CONFISCATION, and to do that they must first register every gun and gun owner.
Then Senator Feinstein will be able to achieve her publicly stated goal:
"Mr. and Mrs. America, turn Ďem all in."
I can hardly even think about what a DISASTER for our country it would be should President Obama, Senator Feinstein and their anti-gun pals succeed in ramming this monstrosity down our throats.
This is exactly the WRONG move for our country -- for our liberties and for our safety.
Now I know THATíS something youíre not hearing from the anti-gun propagandists in the national media.
But the truth is, increasing gun sales in America in recent years has led to lower crime rates.
The same is true all over the world.
Studies show countries with low rates of civilian firearms ownership are the most violent. Countries with high rates of civilian firearms ownership are the safest.
Just look to nearby Mexico if you want to see an example of the gun-grabbersí idea of utopia. Effectively ruled by violent drug gangs in many areas, Mexico is a cesspool of rape, violence and murder.
If you and I want to keep the Second Amendment freedoms weíre so blessed to enjoy as American citizens, itís absolutely CRITICAL you and I act IMMEDIATELY.
Thatís why Iíve agreed to help the National Association for Gun Rights fight back to stop this Gun Ban and help lead the fight AGAINST the gun-grabbers.
Theyíre tough. Theyíre principled. And they know how to win.
They know the ONLY way you and I win this fight is if my colleagues here in Congress understand that voting for gun control will mean the END of their political careers . . .
And theyíre busy mobilizing pro-gun Americans all over the country to make sure Congress gets that message loud and clear.
But with President Obama, Sarah Brady and all the gun-grabbers doubling down, thereís not much time.
To defeat this radical scheme, the National Association for Gun Rights is going to have to pull out all the stops to alert and mobilize Second Amendment supporters all over the country.
Direct mail. Phones. Email. Blogs. Guest editorials. Press conferences. Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits. The whole nine yards.
Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.
But thatís not easy, and we may not have much time.
In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat Feinstein's Gun Ban, pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!
So please put yourself on record AGAINST the Feinstein's Gun Ban by signing NAGRís Emergency Second Amendment Protection Directive.
But along with your signed Directive, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.
And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.
Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.
