    23 State Attorneys General To AG Holder: "No Semi-Auto Ban"

    23 State Attorneys General To Attorney General Holder: "No Semi-Auto Ban"

    Friday, June 12, 2009

    On June 11, the top law enforcement officials of nearly half the states signed a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, expressing their opposition to reinstatement of the federal ban on semi-automatic firearms.

    "We share the Obama Administration's commitment to reducing illegal drugs and violent crime within the United States. We also share your deep concern about drug cartel violence in Mexico. However, we do not believe that restricting law-abiding Americans' access to certain semi-automatic firearms will resolve any of these problems," the letter said.

    The letter notes congressional opposition to bringing back the ban, and calls for increasing enforcement of existing laws.

    We encourage NRA members to let these state officials know we appreciate them standing up to the incessant clamor for gun control that is currently coming from anti-gun groups and their media allies.

    The 23 state Attorneys General, in alphabetical order, by state, are:

    Arkansas The Honorable Dustin McDaniel
    Alabama - The Honorable Troy King
    Colorado - The Honorable John W. Suthers
    Florida - The Honorable Bill McCollum
    Georgia - The Honorable Thurbert E. Baker
    Idaho - The Honorable Lawrence G. Wasden
    Kansas - The Honorable Steve Six
    Kentucky - The Honorable Jack Conway
    Louisiana - The Honorable James D. Caldwell
    Michigan - The Honorable Mike Cox
    Missouri - The Honorable Chris Koster
    Montana - The Honorable Steve Bullock
    Oklahoma - The Honorable W.A. Edmonson
    Nebraska - The Honorable Jon Bruning
    Nevada - The Honorable Catherine Cortez Masto
    New Hampshire - The Honorable Kelly A. Ayotte
    North Dakota - The Honorable Wayne Stenehjem
    South Carolina - The Honorable Henry McMaster
    South Dakota - The Honorable Lawrence Long
    Texas - The Honorable Greg Abbott
    Utah - The Honorable Mark L. Shurtleff
    Wisconsin The Honorable J.B. Van Hollen
    Wyoming - The Honorable Bruce A. Salzburg


    These AG's deserve a thank you.

    I am surprised Alaska and Virginia aren't there. I knew Texas would be...didn't even have to look for it.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    If only the Socialists in office thought that. The problem is, that they could care less what anyone thinks. They know that gun ownership has got to go.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
