Received this email moments ago. It would appear that WE have won this round. Don't relax now, we still have plenty of fighting ahead of us!





Through your efforts, you have succeeded in killing the best

opportunity that anti-gunners had to extend the ban on roughly two

hundred semiautomatic firearms.


Liberals had intended to offer the semi-auto ban as a "killer

amendment" to class action reform legislation which was considered by

the Senate last week. At first, there was every indication that

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist was going to allow anti-gunners

like Sen. Feinstein to offer the gun ban amendment.


But after you bombarded Frist's office with demands that he prevent

the semi-auto amendment, Frist -- in a parliamentary move that we

suggested -- took steps to procedurally block all "killer

amendments," including the semi-auto ban.


Liberal anti-gunners whined and screamed on the Senate floor, and

threatened to kill the class action bill in retaliation. But we

appear to have won the battle for now, as the class action bill has

been pulled from the floor.


This victory is huge. Compared to the ill-fated strategy used on the

gun makers' protection act (S. 1805) earlier in the year, the outcome

on the class action bill was as good as could be expected in the

poisoned environment on the Hill. Consider the following:


* The best chance for reenacting the semi-auto ban prior to its

September 13 expiration is now dead;


* Unlike the gun liability bill -- defeated 8-to-90 in March after

it was loaded down with "killer amendments" -- pro-business Senators

can still bring the class action bill back up at some later point

during this session;


* Unlike with the gun liability bill, the class action bill did not

offer anti-gun Democrats a week of Senate floor time to promote their

agenda; and


* Those anti-gunners who cynically pretended to support the class

action bill were forced to make a choice between politically powerful

constituencies -- between the pro-business community and the trial



ACTION: Write Senator Frist. Congratulate him on his use of the

rules in connection with the class action bill, and thank him for

preventing consideration of the semiautomatic ban.


You can call Senator Frist at 202-224-3344, or go to

http://www.frist.senate.gov and select "Contact Senator Frist" under

the "About Senator Frist" heading to send a message similar to the

one below.


----- Pre-written message -----


Dear Senator Frist:




Your use of the Senate rules in connection with the class action bill

blocked the prime opportunity of anti-gun liberals to force

consideration of the semi-automatic ban.


You also saved the class action bill from the same 8-to-90 defeat

experienced by the gun liability bill, and kept it alive to fight

another day.


Finally, you prevented the Senate floor from being used as a campaign

platform for issues designed to defeat you and your party.


In the politically poisoned environment on the Hill, this is as good

as was possible under the circumstances.








Did anyone save any Fireworks from the 4Th? I DID!! http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/smile.gif

Thanks to all who have been fighting to preserve and extend the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution! http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif This is totally relevant to this board, since we are fighting for our right to keep and bear our Tommys, and all other firearms, and their accessories. http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/sad.gif http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/blink.gif We must all continue to be ever vigilant on this issue, or we can kiss this hobby (and our guns) goodbye! http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/cool.gif Best Regards, Walter

I agree completely with you Walter- this BELONGS here. Hardrede, this is YOUR interests too. Don't let some chickensh*t from some posting currently residing in the Where are They Now File sour you. As Ben Franklin once said,


this should be posted on the front page of every gun forum in the country- if they don't get us this year, rest assured they'll be back.

Oooooh, Pinto. http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/mad.gif My dad traded a 1966 Ford Galaxy and a 1967 Chevelle Malibu for 1974 Pinto wagon the year before I could drive. I hated Pintos until I dated the first girl who had her own car. She drove a Pinto. http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/tongue.gif

Junk this, junk that... your smack is old. Get over yourself. These aren't even available yet, but you are so arrogant to think you already know that these are junk, garbage, etc.


No one wants to hear your opinion on something you know NOTHING about, so can your crap.

Even if the people at Kahr still have problems with quality control, affecting functionality, the drums can be made to function by P.K. and Merle. http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/blink.gif http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif Hopefully the price will drop significantly, on all non-Colt drums! http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/smile.gif http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/cool.gif Regards, Walter

Amen, guys, but let's not get premature.


It's not "dead" until September. Right now, it's terminal, but still in force.


That said, getting it into the terminal ward and putting it on death watch are accomplishments worthy of celebration. I'll hoist an extra Collins for us all on this...


Really looking forward to new C-drums and 1927A-5's...

Prices are already dropping on Drums. WH 50Rd "L" on Sturmgewehr for $480.00. Less than $200.00 come September! http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/laugh.gif

I agree with Nedry, I’ll not be ready to celebrate until the date has passed. I believe it will.


If Kerry gets elected you will have a very short window in which to stock up. There are already plans for a nasty bill to be introduced next year. Say what you will, but I’m glad Kahr has L drums ready to ship right now. I doubt if anyone would be willing to invest in the development of C drum tooling if the Demos come to power.


Kerry is running an add here in CO that proclaims him a “hunter” and shows a photo of him with a shotgun- who does he think he is fooling? Makes me sick


God help us; he looks so good on the TV.


Rant off

The last drum I bought, a LEO "Numrich" L drum, was about $163. It didn't work, but the workmanship was nice (finish, fit, and construction). PK, you made it work no problem. It is marked "for export only". I imagine there are tons of these drums stockpiles at Gunparts and Kahr. Will they be able to sell them off the shelf, grind off the "export only", or sell as is?

I for one am glad this idiotic bill is going to die. Although I won't need any drums for my M1, I am glad to see the prices drop. I guess the one good thing about this bill was that it put a major dent in the drive by bayonettings!

Not to mention those senseless "stock foldings" http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/unsure.gif , "pistol grippings" http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/unsure.gif , and "flash suppressings" http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/unsure.gif which have undoubtably killed and maimed millions (in their minds). I know I felt safer when they were banned.

Yes, driveby bayoneting dropped practically to zero in my neighborhood right after the AW bill passed. And now I'm petrified that the carnage will resume. What could our congressmen have possibly been thinking to allow this horror to begin again?

The grim part of that was, they could technically send a good guy to prison over those stupid laws.

Got a letter from the Florida chapter of the National Gun Violence Prevention Center (or whatever the heck they are called) today asking me to sign an endorsement to extend the ban. They're gonna get something from me, but it ain't gonna be what they want.

Even better, if there is a postpaid envelope, tape it to a box with a couple of bricks inside, and mail them the bricks.
