    SPREAD FAR AND WIDE:

    Mayor "I bought my last election" Bloomberg of New York is now pushing
    hard for Congress to destroy gun shows across the country.

    Just in case you think the threat isn't serious, here is what is in
    store for America if the Mayor gets his way in Congress:

    * Details of the sale, such as the type of gun, the SERIAL NUMBER,
    and any other information the Attorney General may want must be
    provided for guns sold by private sellers

    * Any person selling a gun, be it just walking around with a gun, or
    having purchased a table to sell a gun, must be registered with the
    gun show AT LEAST 30 DAYS BEFORE the show and the gun show must
    provide PERSONAL INFORMATION about each private seller to the Attorney
    General

    * Private sellers must show photo ID to the gun show operator and
    sign a log book with personal information

    * The feds will now have TRUE GUN REGISTRATION information in a
    database - GOODBYE FREEDOM

    * If you make a mistake in all of this, you can get up to FIVE YEARS
    in prison. The gun show operator also can be put in prison for
    paperwork mistakes

    * Gun show operators will have to register with the U.S. Attorney
    General

    * The Attorney General can make up regulations at will for
    controlling gun show operators

    * The Attorney General can charge a fee, no limit set, for a gun show
    operator license

    * Gun shows must get permission from the Attorney General 30 days in
    advance of any show to be able to have a show

    * All sales must go the the National Instant Check System

    A barrage of ads and commercials is starting immediately, attempting
    to push Congress to pass this legislation!

    The full bill can be seen here:

    Senators Warner and Webb are coming under pressure to support the gun
    control measure by the usual suspects. It is CRITICAL that they hear
    from us NOW!

    -

    ACTION ITEM!

    We need to contact Senators Webb and Warner and urge them NOT to
    support the destruction of our gun rights and must do so NOW!

    To send a message to Mark Warner, click here:

    Contact Us - Mark R. Warner

    For topic, select "Second Amendment Rights"

    For Subject, enter "There is NO gun show loophole"

    -

    To send a message to Jim Webb, click here:

    Contact Senator Webb

    For Subject select "Civil Liberty"

    -

    Suggested message to both Warner and Webb:

    There is NO gun show loophole and I urge you NOT to support any
    further infringements on my right to buy, sell and own firearms. The
    bills under consideration, HR2324 and S843, will DESTROY gun shows and
    will also implement the registration of firearms. History, including
    here in America, has shown that registration is followed by
    confiscation - none of which can be tolerated.

    Criminals get their guns either by stealing them or through straw
    purchases - neither of which can be stopped by background checks. A
    study done for the U.S. Department of Justice (Firearms Use by
    Offenders) in 2006 found that only 0.7% of guns used in crime come
    from gun shows.

    Make no mistake - these bills are not about reducing crime, but they
    are about destroying a major part of our right to keep and bear arms.

    These bills cannot be "fixed up" to be made acceptable - they can only
    be defeated.

    Please let me know how you are going to vote on these bills.

    More for any members in three VA Congressional districts

    Time for pro-gun voters to get started in helping get Pro-gun candidates on the ballot and then really get busy.

    Three congressmen urge checks at gun shows
    **************************************************

    Elections for the Congress are coming in November. Looks like 3
    Democrats are itching to be voted out by supporting a federal "gun
    show loophole" bill:

    Three Congressmen Urge Checks at Gun Shows|ABC 13

    ABC 13 - WSET-TV in Lynchburg, Virginia

    Three Congressmen Urge Checks at Gun Shows posted 04/16/10 10:35 am
    producer: Amy Foster

    Richmod, VA - Three Virginia congressmen are asking their colleagues
    to support closing the so-called gun-show loophole.

    Democrats Jim Moran, Bobby Scott and Gerald Connolly sent a letter to
    members of the House of Representatives Thursday asking them to
    support a bill to require private sellers to perform background checks
    on buyers at gun shows.

    The letter went out a day before the third anniversary of the
    shootings at Virginia Tech, where a student gunman killed 32 others
    and himself. The congressmen also mentioned the shootings at Columbine
    High School that killed 12.

    The families of victims in both tragedies have fought to require the
    checks. Colorado has changed its laws, but Virginia has not.

    A bill was introduced in Congress last May, but has yet to be heard in
    committee.
