Between now and September 2004, we are scheduled to see the departure of certain existing restrictions, a result of Sun Set provisions included in the original legislation. Effected legislation includes the so-called Assault Weapons Ban, which didn't ban so much as a single member of the genre, because it addressed only non-functional, cosmetic features. Additionally, there is the 10 round capacity limit prescribed for removable/detachable rifle and pistol magazines, as well as a cartridge capacity limit for shotguns.

The 108th Congress will have to do something. Even simply allowing The Sun To Set on the above mentioned, would send a much needed message of rejection, to the Anti Gun Nuts of this country, though it would be much better for The Congress (House and Senate) to, by an open vote, reject anything that would serve to extend, in any way at all, the miserable life of the above mentioned.

Obviously, efforts to extend or to make permanent the restrictions in the above mentioned legislation will be made, some are already under way. Be that as it may, your active opposition to extension or making permanent or in any way retaining the existing restrictions, is something that must be had.

Remember if you will, that the basis of the Assault Weapons Ban was and remains, FALSE. Also, restricting magazine capacity to 10 rounds, or any number less than that which FACTORY STANDARD MAGAZINES contained, has yet to serve any valid public or legitimate law enforcement purpose. That is because said restrictions, in no way, serve valid public purposes. They never did, and they never will. So when and if this comes before The Congress for extension, The Sun Must Set. Oppose extension, in any imaginable guise, no matter how it might be offered. You must vote NO.
