    Check out HR 1096

    If all this discussion about H.R. 1022 (the new "Assault Weapons" Ban) is getting you down, take a look at H.R. 1096. I can pretty much guarantee that reading it will brighten your day.

    I would love to see it happen, but for some reason, D.O.A. comes to mind.
    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    Boy, wouldn't that be nice...if the Second Amendment actually carried the weight of something like, oh, I don't know, and AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Hr 1022

    Following is a copy of a letter I sent to Congressman Maurice Hinchey
    This is something we should all do,Send as many letters to our representatives as we can and have everyone we know do the same.

    Dear Representative Hinchey,
    I am extremely opposed to HR 1022 or the Assault Weapons
    Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2007. I am not opposed to Law
    Enforcement Protection,But I am opposed to the Banning of all firearms,in
    the hands of LAW ABIDING CITIZENS.I know of all the GOOD things you have done for a lot of folks who needed
    your help,I ask you to help the Good Citizens of this Country who beleive
    in the Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms.I am well aware of the
    crimes against Police and Civilians with such firearms,but as you must know, these
    Firearms are illegaly obtained.By Representative Carolyn McCarthy,
    attempting to ban these firearms,the only thing she is accomplishing is
    to remove them from the citizens, and allowing the Criminals to have
    access.The other thing that I fear is, if this Ban should go into effect
    the owning of some if not all hunting rifles with detachable magazines
    would fall under this Law.

    Sincerely


    I hate to say it but I cant foresee HR 1096 coming to be with out radical changes.The House or Congress will not allow it to happen.I really hope that I'm wrong!
