National Coalition To Stop The Gun Ban: Open Letter to Members of Congress
Ammoland ^

Posted on 01/07/2013 4:36:57 PM PST by Red in Blue PA

USA --(Ammoland.com)- In coming weeks, you will face pressure from the Obama administration and others to implement a ban on semi-automatic firearms and certain ammunition feeding devices, and to pass laws requiring private gun transfers to be processed via the National Instant Check System. Yet the “assault weapon” misnomer is a myth perpetuated by gun control advocates who seek to confuse the public about the difference between millions of semi-automatic firearms, which are functionally identical to hunting rifles, and military “assault rifles” which are machine guns virtually unavailable to the public since implementation of the National Firearms Act of 1934. The Truth About Modern Rifles The modern rifles Senator Dianne Feinstein has, by her own admission, waited decades to ban differ from others primarily by cosmetic features such as barrel shrouds, threaded barrels, flash suppressors, pistol grips and adjustable stocks ¡V things which do not affect function. The notion being promulgated by gun control advocates that such features increase lethality by allowing guns to be “fired from the hip” is absurd: Any firearms expert will attest that rifles can only be effectively utilized from the shoulder. Although you are being told that ammunition used by modern rifles is excessively destructive, in truth it is ballistically inferior to common .30-06 hunting ammunition and was selected by the military not for its lethality, but instead for light weight and low recoil.

We have to more than talk: how about a “million gun owner march”in DC? Preferably before the idiot's inauguration.

How about DURING the Inauguration? That would set a charge up their butts.

If I were a liberal Democrat and I got this letter, I wouldn’t be worried either.

‘34 required a $200 tax, and FOPA cut off the supply of new automatics.

Half right doesn’t count.

Uh... what major gun rights group is, at least for the time being, missing from the list of national organizations in the letter? Perhaps they are Not Really Aware of the letter? Or maybe they's Not Ready to Associate themselves with the coalition?

Let’s steer this back to the discussion of protecting kids from shooters in the school.

I have a better idea. Ignore their unconstitutional laws.

Tell them all to go straight to hell.

Well that’s two of us. Back-to-back and we’ve got a plan. I’ll see you on the green! I’ll bring the coffee and tobacco.

How about gaining the offensive in this manner. Include in the letter this ultimatum. “You are hereby advised that all law abiding gun owners will refuse to pay any federal income tax to a government that acts unconstitutionally.”

We need to be on the offense. There are a lot of us, I just wish we were better organized and committed.

Yes, let’s go on the offensive. The ‘86, ‘68 and ‘34 gun control acts are all unConstitutional so lets push back hard for repeal of them all.

Inform all those voting for any “disarmament legislation” that you will hold them personally responsible for any harm that comes to you or your family due to your inability to protect them from bodily harm.

You can’t reason with communists, Nazis or 30 IQ leftist apes.

Both the NFA of ‘34 and the GCA of ‘68 need to be repealed.

The bad news is that no member of Congress will take the time to read the letter. If they do anything with it they might pass it off to an aide and ask for a summery. Most will just toss it away. That's just the way things are.

The problem is that our income-tax system has made this essentially impossible; this is the true insidiousness of 'withholdings', which really are nothing more than theft, as they take it from your employer before he gives it to you.
