I received this message from G.O.A.L. this morning.

Gun Owners & Sportsmen Beware

There is a new national organization calling itself the American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA). According to this new group, extremists groups who defend the second amendment as it was written are threatening the future of gun ownership and hunting.

The following is a quote from their website: "Moreover, an overwhelming majority of hunters support proposals like background checks to purchase guns, keeping military style assault weapons off our streets and the elimination of cop killer bullets." "In recent years, extreme political positions purporting to support gun rights have jeopardized our sport and have hurt the image of responsible gun owners. Unless the sporting community can become unified behind an organization that fights for safe and responsible hunting and shooting practices and sensible gun ownership, future generations may be unable to participate in and enjoy the shooting sports."

As we looked further into this obvious ruse, we found that the President of the AHSA Foundation was none other than John Rosenthal, Cofounder of Stop Handgun Violence (SHV). If you read his biography on the AHSA website, it fails to mention his association with SHV. It also fails to mention that SHV has supported every anti-second amendment rights bill since the organizations creation.

Stop Handgun Violence was a major supporter of Chapter 180 of the Acts of 1998. As our members are aware, that legislation has been responsible for taking the rights away from nearly 1,000,000 lawful gun owners. The result of which has been a near 50% increase in violent related gun crimes and a 300% increase in fatal accidents. SHV was also a major supporter of the Massachusetts Attorney Generals fraudulent regulations on handguns.

The facts are obvious, the anti-civil rights radical agenda and the failed social experiment of crime control through the persecution of lawful citizens has forced such groups to hide their true agenda. These groups are losing public support and are desperate to regain a political foothold. The AHSA is apparently trying to copy a ploy from John Kerry's failed Presidential bid and camouflage who they really are.

Please let all of your fellow gun owners and sportsmen know about this fraudulent organization.

Another 'front' for HCI?

'Prolly. Let's watch them support a gun-grabbing Democrat and then we'll know.

If you delve a little deeper into this website it just becomes downright scary!

This site is entirely trying to brainwash hunters and lightweight gun owners into thinking banning some guns is good for everyone and the children....

I did the 'contact us' thing (didn't leave my e-mail-why ASK for spamming..?) and told them the jig was already up. While this will have no effect, is somehow made me feel better.

We have to make sure LEGITIMATE gun rights groups know these dudes are fakes, so when they support Hitlery in '08 we can all laugh them off.
