View Full Version : Reject Renewal of Feinstein-Schumer Gun-Control Act

(Please forward this time-sensitive notice to fellow American

PatriotPetitions.US has launched a national campaign entreating
our President, House of Representatives and Senate to reject
legislation renewing the 1994 Clinton-Feinstein-Schumer Gun-Control
Act schedule to sunset on 13 September 2004. Please read this
brief description of the campaign and let your voice be heard on
this matter.

Though House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says "The votes in the House
are not there" to renew the measure, Feinstein and Schumer will
press for a roll call vote in order to politicize this legislation
prior to the upcoming presidential election.

For thirty years, the Left has used the "safety" claim as
the foundation for its strategy of "incremental encroachment"
on the Second Amendment to achieve its ultimate goal of gun
confiscation, and the Feinstein-Schumer legislation preventing
law-abiding citizens from owning semi-automatic rifles (so-called
and decidedly misnamed "assault weapons") for lawful purposes, is
no exception. Such laws claim, ostensibly, to protect law-abiding
citizens. Of course, only law-abiding citizens comply with these
restrictions -- and at their own peril. Criminals don't care
if the weapon they are using comport with the 23,000 federal,
state and local gun restrictions already on the books.

Ms. Feinstein made clear her real objective after passage of
Feinstein-Schumer in 1994: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in
the Senate...for an outright ban, picking up every one of them,
Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in, I would have done it."

Reject renewal of the 1994 Clinton-Feinstein-Schumer Gun-Control

Please join fellow Patriots on the frontlines in defense of our

Founder's Quote: "The right of the citizens to keep and bear
arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties
of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the
usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even
if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people
to resist and triumph over them." --Justice Joseph Story appointed
to the Supreme Court by James Madison, author of our Constitution.
