DON'T BELIEVE THE 'SELL-OUT' RUMORS!
Rumors are circulating across the Internet that the National Rifle
Association has "sold out" on passage of S. 659, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in
Arms Act, by agreeing to amendments that would extend the so-called "assault
weapons" ban of 1994 and close the so-called "gun show loophole."
Those rumors are false.
However, by circulating such allegations, it is possible that key members of
Congress will be misled into believing that "It's okay if we accept these
anti-gun amendments, because that's what the NRA wants."
Gun owners should realize that the NRA, along with the Citizens Committee
for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and other gun rights organizations and our
members and supporters, are solidly against any such extension. That has
always been the case.
Firearms owners are urged to continue calling their Senators today as the
Senate debates S.659, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.
Tell your Senators to support passage of a clean bill, with no amendments.
To reach your Senators, call:
Diane Feinstein: (202) 224-3841
Barbara Boxer: (202) 224-3553
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens
Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation's premier gun
rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is
dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected
officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists
in local communities throughout the United States.
