    The headline of this alert is a slogan being used by
    the Vernon
    Robinson for Congress campaign in North Carolina's 5th

    His entry into the race for House of Representatives
    was lamented by
    a Winston-Salem newspaper which said: "Jesse Helms is
    back! And this
    time he's black." Robinson gleefully adopted their
    words for his

    That's pure Robinson. He thrives on confrontation.

    Robinson is a Winston-Salem Councilman in his second
    term. He has
    aggressively challenged the establishment on a number
    of issues,
    including self-defense.

    Robinson came from behind to win a plurality in a
    crowded primary
    field. He now is in an August 17 runoff election.

    Robinson shocked the political establishment by
    placing first,
    defeating the presumed favorite, a millionaire heir to
    the Broyhill
    furniture fortune and son of a U.S. Senator with the
    same famous
    name. Broyhill actually came in third, leaving State
    Virginia Foxx to face Robinson in the August 17

    Robinson's opponent, Foxx, has been endorsed by trial
    lawyers and
    teachers groups, both of which are notorious for their
    efforts to
    undermine the Second Amendment.

    Robinson is not getting any support from the
    establishment -- no
    surprise there. His campaign is a grassroots effort
    fueled by
    thousands of small-to-medium-size donations.

    I hope you will join me in making a contribution to
    campaign. You can do it on line at
    with a credit card. Or, you can print out and mail
    the reply form

    If you can volunteer -- even though you do not live in
    the district
    -- please do so. Robinson has benefited from such
    volunteers already
    and has housing available. Call 336-794-0882 to
    volunteer and
    arrange for overnight accommodations.

    A proud member of GOA, Robinson is more than willing
    to take the
    following public position: "I oppose any existing law
    or prospective
    legislation that encroaches upon every American's
    individual right to
    bear arms."

    GOA members all across the country win with Vernon
    Robinson in
    Congress. He is truly one of our own -- and eager to
    fight for the
    Second Amendment.
