Senate Judiciary Committee Tries To Sneak Through Anti-gun Brady Expansion

The dimwits are at it again. They're doing everything possible to take your guns away. We need to put a stop to this stupidity and flood the Judiciary Committee members with plenty of emails and phone calls.

It can hardly be a surprise that anti-gunners on the Senate Judiciary Committee are trying to sneak through a huge expansion of the Brady Law. The anti-gun bill -- which is being supported heavily by Democrats Carolyn McCarthy, Chuck Schumer and Patrick Leahy -- will turn over millions of your personal medical, psychiatric, and financial records to the FBI's Instant Check system.

After all, the last thing these politicians want is to have to confront veterans who have served their country honorably and are outraged that their names are about to be turned over to the FBI.

On Thursday, July 26, Judiciary Committee anti-gunners will try their "sneak attack" -- meeting to rush this bill through without hearings, without listening to vets and seniors, and without any deliberations whatsoever. At last check, the bill didn't even have a number.

If this bill is signed into law:

* As many as a quarter to a third of returning Iraq veterans could be prohibited from owning firearms -- based solely on a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder;

* Your ailing grandfather could have his entire gun collection seized, based only on a diagnosis of Alzheimer's (and there goes the family inheritance);

* Your kid could be permanently banned from owning a gun, based on a diagnosis under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

ACTION: Please use the pre-written letter below to help direct your comments to your senator, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Tell him to oppose the Brady Expansion bill that is being supported by Rep. McCarthy and Senators Schumer and Leahy.

You can visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your senator the pre-written message as an e-mail. Please contact the one in your state. (Note: It is perfectly fine to contact both your senators, but the one on the committee really needs to hear from you at this
time.)

Judiciary Committee members:

Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT)
Arlen Specter (R-PA)
Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT)
Charles E. Grassley (R-IA)
Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Sam Brownback (R-KS)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)

----- Pre-written letter -----

Dear Senator:

Once again, anti-gun zealots are trying to sneak the McCarthy-Schumer-Leahy bill through the Senate Judiciary Committee without any hearings whatsoever. If passed:

* As many as a quarter to a third of returning Iraq veterans could be prohibited from owning firearms -- based solely on a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder;

* An ailing grandfather could have his entire gun collection seized, based only on a diagnosis of Alzheimer's (and there goes the family's inheritance);

* A kid could be permanently banned from owning a gun, based on a diagnosis under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Please do not let this happen. Please oppose this anti-gun Brady expansion.

Sincerely,

I'm so happy I checked in to see what was new. I just sent an e-mail to my senators - not that it will do any good as they're Feinstein and Boxer!!!!

Well, what do we do when we're being attacked on our own soil, by our very own countrymen? Seems as though they have all the "weapons" they need to defeat us. Makes keeping our own that much more important.
