Congressman Rick Renzi (R-AZ) is about to introduce
legislation
which would force BATF to allow licensed firearms
dealers to
conduct face-to-face firearms sales nationwide.

In recent years, the BATF's overzealous enforcement
has prohibited
licensed firearms dealers from different states from
consummating
face-to-face handgun transfers.

This is despite the fact that, even from BATF's point
of view, a
face-to-face sale and transfer of a firearm by two
dealers who have
been licensed by the government would seem to be much
safer than
forcing the firearms to be shipped through dozens of
unlicensed
hands.

ACTION: Please contact your representative and ask
him to become an
original cosponsor of the Renzi legislation by
contacting
Congressman Renzi or by having a staff member call his
office. You
can visit the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send the
pre-written
message below.


--- Pre-written message ---

Dear Representative:

Congressman Rick Renzi has introduced common sense
legislation that
will allow dealers to conduct face-to-face firearms
sales
nationwide.

He is currently seeking original cosponsors to his
bill. Please
call him at 202-225-2315 and tell him you will sign
this bill.
Thank you.

Sincerely,


****************************

In May, Gun Owners of America asked you to sign a
petition
requesting Rep. Tom DeLay to let Rep. Ron Paul offer
legislation
pulling the U.S. out of the anti-gun U.S.

The good news is the House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
listened to the
more than 35,000 petition signers and allowed Paul to
offer his
amendment -- which he did last week. The bad news is
that the
amendment lost 350-74.

You can see who voted to keep supporting the
gun-grabbing UN by
going to
http://clerkweb.house.gov/cgi-bin/vote.exe?year=2003&rollnumber=364
on the Internet.

Please thank Rep. Paul for offering his amendment and
Rep. DeLay for
allowing the vote.

What's so great about that? Sheesh, I thought that the "face-to-face" transfers would mean that average Joes could transfer guns back and forth without a dealer being involved - you know, like we used to be able to do when the country was actually FREE :fire:
