Well, we knew this day would eventually come.
GOA has been warning gun owners that Democrat Senator Dianne
Feinstein of California would be looking for an avenue to attach her
gun ban to unrelated legislation sometime this year.
According to Senate sources, Feinstein will be making her move quite
While she reportedly has her eyes on a number of different bills as
possible vehicles for her amendment, it seems certain that she will
try to piggy-back her anti-gun language onto a legal reform bill
(such as S. 2062) within the next few weeks.
You will remember that when Feinstein offered her gun ban amendment
in March, it passed 52-47.
While a switch of only three Senators would be enough to kill the
amendment, it seems that the easiest way to defeat Feinstein will be
through a filibuster. Our side only needs 41 Senators to kill her
amendment through the art of filibuster, and it would appear that we
definitely have that many votes... BUT ONLY IF THE 47 SENATORS WHO
VOTED RIGHT LAST TIME CONTINUE TO HOLD THE LINE!
That’s why we need another barrage of phone calls and e-mails going
into Senate offices.
ACTION: Please contact your Senators and urge them to oppose any
Feinstein amendment to reinstate the semi-auto ban. Tell them to
also support any effort to filibuster this unconstitutional
You can send the letter as an e-mail by visiting the GOA Legislative
Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm (where phone
and fax numbers are also available).
----- Pre-written letter -----
I have been alerted to the fact that Sen. Dianne Feinstein is
planning to offer the renewal of Clinton’s semi-auto ban as an
amendment to legislation in upcoming weeks.
I would join the voices of many other Americans who would urge you
to support our call for a filibuster against the reauthorization.
Please know that the Clinton semi-auto ban is one of the most hated
pieces of legislation ever enacted, and those who support its
reauthorization will find no friends or votes within the pro-gun

I was wondering what would happen to all the "Pre-Ban" guns and mags that everyones been hanging onto if the ban went away.
I had to sell all my pre-bans to pay for the machineguns I bought

We sure do appreciate your efforts to stop anti-gun legislation.
On a humorous note - A question are you having an identity crisis?

I kidded you about your avatar changes earlier, but I think Jeremy Brett one is perfect! Brett will always be my most favorite Holmes actor. I think he captured the genius and also the eccentric personality, better than any of the others.
I'm getting my awb letters off this weekend. Let's hope we can get this one behind us.

The absurdity of this woman, who herself owns firearms!!!
