    Obama and congress pushing through bans on guns and gun shows

    FYI

    BARACK OBAMA AND CONGRESS PUSHING
    THROUGH BANS ON GUNS AND GUN SHOWS!


    The Second Amendment is under assault as never before -- and the "anti-gun" forces could win this time...

    Unless YOU AND I take action NOW to stop them!
    TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT
    ALL BANS ON GUNS AND GUN SHOWS:

    As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama deliberately and repeatedly LIED to America's 90 million gun owners across the country, when he insisted that he would NOT try to take away anyone's firearms.

    Now, Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder is saying that the president will seek to reinstate the ban on semi-automatic firearms -- which means he KNEW he was lying to the nation, because his own website touted his plan to revive the gun ban and make it permanent!

    We warned America that Obama's "support" for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric -- and now Holder's disclosure has confirmed it. Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying.

    Several times on the campaign trail, Obama told voters, "I'm not going to take your guns away." He said it at rallies in Duryea, Pennsylvania, and in Boise, Idaho. He also told a news conference that "Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear... I think people can take me at my word."

    One thing is now obvious: We shouldn't take Obama's word, even if he says it rains a lot in Seattle. Apparently, law-abiding gun owners have nothing to fear... UNLESS they own sport-utility rifles, semiautomatic shotguns, handguns and any other firearm that Obama and his anti-gun Attorney General don't like.

    Thanks to Eric Holder -- who has been far more honest than his boss about his anti-gun philosophy -- it is now clear that the new president doesn't support the Second Amendment at all. American gun owners should remind Democrats in Congress that the Second Amendment means what it says, especially when the president doesn't.
    TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT
    ALL BANS ON GUNS AND GUN SHOWS:
    SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!

    It doesn't stop there! Senators Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have joined Paul Helmke, President of the "Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence," along with victims and family members of the Virginia Tech tragedy, to introduce legislation to ELIMINATE the private transfers of firearms and close the nation's "gun show loophole."

    You read that right. Did you know that YOU are considered "irrational" if you support private gun sales? Sen. Lautenberg says so!
    "There is no rational reason to oppose closing the loophole. The reason it's still not closed is simple: the continuing power of the special interest gun lobby in Washington."
    BUT, not only are YOU irrational for supporting private gun sales -- they also must think you're an IDIOT because, with NO supporting evidence, Lautenberg fell back to the disproven old " 90% Obama Mexican Gun" Lie:
    "Thirty percent of the guns that go to Mexico are bought at gun shows. We don't know whether they're bought from unlicensed dealers, but logic would say let's have some idea who it is that bought those guns and what their intentions might be."
    Independence Institute researcher David Kopel has written about the so-called "gun show loophole," concluding that it is a myth:
    "Despite what some media commentators have claimed, if a dealer sells a gun from a storefront, from a room in his home or from a table at a gun show, the rules are exactly the same: he can get authorization from the FBI for the sale only after the FBI runs its 'instant' background check."
    Even the Bureau of Justice Statistics report entitled "Firearms Use by Offenders" found that less than one percent -- 0.7%, to be exact -- of guns used in crimes originated at gun shows.

    None of this matters to the Gun Grabbers -- New York's Democrat Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand have now proposed that computerized background checks be retained, creating a de facto gun registration system; and Lautenberg's bill proposes private transactions be added to this registration system!

    This is an OUTRAGEOUS violation of the Second Amendment!
    TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT
    ALL BANS ON GUNS AND GUN SHOWS:
    SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!

    Why are Obama, Lautenberg, and other liberals in Congress doing this?

    Motives for eliminating gun shows are twofold:

    First, gun shows are a powerful tool in defeating gun control legislation. Grassroots activism burns like a brushfire when Second Amendment supporters gather in one place!

    Second, If you can eradicate the gun show, you are a HUGE step closer to eradicating the pro-gun culture altogether.

    Lautenberg and the Gun Grabbers in the Senate are also lying about the Virginia Tech gunman who had a background check at a legal gun store, just so they can try to justify themselves. There were abundant warning signs that he posed a serious threat to the campus. Yet he was running loose because the gun check system failed.

    It's obvious that the Anti-Gun Coalitions are trying to use tragic events to destroy gun shows and the right of all Americans to keep and bear arms to protect themselves under the law. They are attacking and hiding behind an "Anti-Terrorist" Agenda while getting political and financial support from:
    George Soros, a Hungarian-born billionaire who is bank rolling efforts with his checkbook and spending more that $100 million to destroy the Constitution.


    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA), who admitted that "guns would be banned and confiscated" if she could have her way.


    The United Nations, which actively pushes globalism seeking to disarm all Americans.
    We must Stop the Anti-Gun Coalition and get ready for the biggest gun control fight of the year from coast to coast. We can not do that without your support.
    TELL CONGRESS TO REJECT
    ALL BANS ON GUNS AND GUN SHOWS:
    SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!

    All that seems to be on the minds of the Anti-Gun Senators and at the offices of gun control extremists is figuring out how to exploit tragedy to erode and eventually destroy the right, and the means, of self-defense.

    Like all other threats against our freedoms, we must rise and defeat these attempts by Obama and his followers -- we must slap these bills down hard.

    Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Charles Schumer (D-NY), John Kerry (D-MA), Ted Kennedy (D-MA), Carl Levin (D-MI), Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) cosponsor the current Senate legislation. And Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is working to make sure that all of the anti-gun legislation passes over on the House of Representatives side.

    In order to stop Schumer, Kerry and Kennedy and their fellow gun-grabbers, we need to let Congress know with tens of thousands of faxes telling them to leave guns alone.

    We need Americans like YOU who understand what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our nation... and who are willing to fight to defend our Constitution and for what it stands.

    So please, help the Citizens Committee defeat those who wish to gut and trash the United States Constitution.

    Help us flood the U.S. Congress with a sea of FAXES big enough to drown each and every Congressman willing to vote away the Second Amendment. Please, SELECT HERE NOW to send Blast Faxes to EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF CONGRESS, telling them to REJECT all bans on guns and gun shows TODAY!

    CALL President Obama, 1-202-456-1111 and 1-202-456-1414, expressing your disdain and ABSOLUTE REJECTION of all GUN BANS.

    What's the bill number for this "new legislation"?? Sounds like a lot more hype and grab for donations/memberships. Nothing here sounds new unless there is a bill number assigned and I don't see the connection to Obama - yet. I have plenty of trash I'm happy to talk about the guy but this seems a bit unwarranted - at least for now.

    People with last names between A thru N can call now
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Pelosi and Reid have repeatedly said that they will not push for gun control any time soon. Pelosi and Reid are well aware that a vote on gun control would fracture their party.

    65 Democrat members of the US house wrote a letter to Holder telling him not to push for gun control. Unless a gaggle of far out loonies get together and do something really dumb, there is no gun control in this congress.

    BTW: Reid is rated B by the NRA.

    I'm not exactly worried about it yet...I think that we're OK for a while.

    Yes, obama is a habitual liar! You see, obama’s fundamental talent “lies” in his ability to con people. Even with overwhelming evidence of doing exactly the opposite of what he says, a majority of Americans continue to give him the benefit of doubt.
