    "Kill the McCarthy Gun Grab!"

    Gun Owners of America has alerted you on a couple of occasions to a
    massive gun control bill that is currently working its way through
    Congress.

    H.R. 1415, introduced by New York anti-gun liberal Carolyn McCarthy
    (D), authorizes nearly $1 billion to the states to vastly expand upon
    the unconstitutional gun laws already on the books.

    (McCarthy, whose husband was killed by a lunatic who attacked dozens
    of unarmed commuters on a Long Island train, ran for Congress on a
    campaign to ban guns.)

    McCarthy and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) first introduced this bill
    in 2002 after a tragic shooting at a Long Island Catholic church. We
    have come to expect that people like McCarthy and Schumer will always
    try to exploit tragedy for political gain.

    What is surprising, however, is how close this bill is to becoming
    law under congressional leadership that claims to be pro-gun. It
    already passed the House once, in October of 2002, but was killed in
    the senate when GOA teamed up with former Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH) to
    block the bill.

    There are many good pro-gun members on the committee who are being
    fed misinformation. They're being told that this is a harmless bill
    that will simply make the Brady law work more efficiently.

    H.R. 1415 is anything but harmless. The billion dollars will be used
    to computerize and make available to the federal government millions
    of state records that could include state tax returns, employment
    records, library records (we've already seen how these have been
    deemed relevant to terrorism investigations), DMV, hospital, mental
    health and some misdemeanor records -- all in the name of making sure
    you're not prohibited from owning a gun.

    In all, this bill allows for an enormous data dump from the states to
    the federal government, at the same time laying the infrastructure
    for even more gun control in the future. . . . H.R. 1415, perhaps the
    most massive expansion of gun control since the Brady bill passed in
    1993, is not a bill that should be supported by pro-gun
    conservatives. . . "

    VCDL members and others should take action ASAP at:

    It is not good to have that much detailed and specific information about individual American citizens in one searchable data base for any reason.

    So basically this thing seeks to do an end run around the 1986 FOPA?

    Here is a link to the actual bill so that you all can read it and make an informed decision for yourself about what the bill says or will do. The title of the bill is NICS Improvement Act of 2005.

    I received a reply from my Congressman today... Here is a cut and paste from his email.



    September 8, 2006

    Mr. Lewis Pratt
    *** Edit out Road
    Wiscasset, Maine 04578

    Dear Mr. Pratt:

    Thank you for contacting me about restrictions on gun
    ownership. I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

    Law-abiding citizens in this country have a constitutional
    right to own guns. In Maine, hunting is a tradition that is
    important to Maine people and vital to our economy. I support the
    right to bear arms, and I believe in a state's sovereign right to
    establish its own gun laws. I do support federal restrictions on the
    ownership, possession, or use of firearms by convicted felons,
    persons arrested for domestic violence, and the mentally ill.

    Again, thank you for contacting me. I will keep your views
    in mind when considering legislation on this subject that comes
    before the House.





    Sincerely,


    Tom Allen
    Member of Congress
