10.03.07 NRA GUN CONTROL BILL STILL KICKING.

NRA GUN CONTROL BILL STALLED BUT NOT DEAD.

The NRA backed, Brady Bill expansion act, HR 2640 has been stalled as a result of your efforts, but it’s not dead yet

Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is working to keep the bill from being fast-tracked, but Charles Schumer and the NRA are continuing to try to pass it over the objections of gun owners across the country.

While the NRA continues to insist this is not gun control, their allies, New York’s Charles Schumer and Carolyn McCarthy have hailed it as just that.

Gun Owners of America, which is opposing the bill, has reported that the American Legion has joined The Military Order of the Purple Heart in opposing the legislation.

The NRA has dubbed the bill “The Brady Improvement Act” but have never really explained why gun owners would want to “improve” an unconstitutional bill that gun owners opposed from the beginning. Nor have they explained why the Federal Government, which routinley delays and denies qualified gun buyers in Oregon should be trusted with even more of people’s personal records.

You can read an in-depth analysis of what is wrong with this bill here.You may also want to contact the NRA and tell them to STOP supporting Schumer and McCarthy’s latest gun grab.

You can use GOA’s legislative action center to send an e-mail to Senators Ron Wyden and Gordon Smith. If you are an NRA member you may want to contact them and tell them you do not support their alliances with the likes of Schumer.
