    :( I'm just getting so tired.


    How do we end this crap once and for all?

    I just want to live my life without having to fight tooth and nail every effing day just to be left alone.


    maybe the high road isn't the way to go anymore

    They're counting on us getting tired and giving up. **** them.:fire:

    I'm not giving up. I've been in the fight for twenty years now (I'm 39) and I look upon the last few years as having been a nice breather. Back into the ring now.

    If it helps things have changed since 94. I believe that our side is better organized and this strange thing called the Internet has enabled us to communicate with greater ease than we could just thirteen years ago. I count THR as being part of the "Information Highway."

    But if you want to be all gloom and doom go ahead. Interseting how the other side never seems to quit, but there do seem to be alot of folks on our side who seem like they want to throw in the towel.

    I'm not giving up. I just called the SAF, NRA, and attempted to call the GOA. Neither organization had really heard much.

    Let's fight the good fight. Now who do I need to call, write, and fax

    Go to www.nraila.org for information. They provide information on your elected reps. Both stae and local. They also give you your local NRA rep's contact info. The site is very easy to navigate and has tons of info.

    The guy at my senators offfice was already aware of it. Senator Larry Craig. Senator Craig is a strong advocate of the 2nd Amendment - he's proven it many times in the past.

    I've already made a couple phone calls and informed my Congressman's office about McCarthy's HR 1022.

    Um, isn't home-defense self-defense? Plenty of people own AR-15s, AK-47s, Mini-14s, and other "evil black rifles" for SHTF scenarios, whether it is home invasion, natural disaster, terrorism, etc.



    Oh, and last I checked, sports cars have no practical use. Where's the ban on sports cars?

    IMO, shooting is it's own sport. I found the "fact" that 10 people were killed in Utah entertaining, since I had heard 5, and actually read a list of the dead and wounded. And last I checked, there is no possible way for NICS to guage whether someone is mentally deficient or not at teh time of purchase. I hope this gets shoved into the crapper where it belongs.

    FieroCDSP,
    Thats the beauty of McCarthy's bill, part of the "NICS improvement" is to tie in state mental health records with the NICS database...

    My representative is on the list--Keith Ellison--but I won't count on him for any help. He just called the cops on another representative because the man was smoking a cigar in his office. This Ellison is a piece of work. I don't hate him because he's black, or because he's Muslim; I hate him because he is an irrresponsible, hypocritical, unethical, sanctimoneous pile of pig feces. I'd rather have Al Sharpton representing me, or Don King for that matter.

    Just about every Republican I know took him at face value on this one. And they were all p!$$ed about it.

    Isn't Don King a bit on the conservative side as it is? I just seem to remember seeing something where he advocated personal responsibility - somewhere or another.

    I just emailed my Congresscritter about this. I encourage all of you to do the same. We have to make our voices heard if we are going to stop this.

    The Federal Gov't enforces laws selectively. Take border control.

    Perhaps the American people can learn from their representatives.

    Many people on firearms forums did NOT take Bush at face value when he said he was for renewing the assault weapons ban. Many people on this very forum were very adamant that Bush did not want a ban, and was just saying he did to appease moderates.

    I am one of those people, and I still believe that Bush doesn't want a ban and was just saying so to appease moderates.

    However, appeasing moderates seems to be his favorite pass time so if it gets to his desk I expect he'll sign it.

    Problem is we don't have a Republican controlled house and senate that will stand in the way.


    I guess now we'll find out if all these so-called "pro gun Democrats" that were just elected are really "pro gun". :scrutiny:

    Incidentally... some encouragement.

    The last time this came about, at this point I wager none of us would have even heard about it yet. And note post 8 - average folk like us are the ones even letting the NRA know. And now two days after it was brought up in committee we're already hounding our Congress critters over it.

    Things are a LOT better for us now than in '94.
    I think this is entirely winnable. :D

    You mean like that Republican and original AWB supporter, ex-Sen. Mike DeWine of Ohio?

    DeWine was NRA "F" rated. His Democrat replacement is "D-" rated.

    Republican ex-governor Bob "My Cat's Name is Mittens" Taft vetoed concealed carry and preemption legislation before being overridden.

    Being a Republican guarantees nothing more than the office holder will have "R" after his name.

    [Sarcasm]Must have been a post-ban mag... not limited it 10 rounds. If the ban was in effect he would have only been able to get 10+1 max. [/Sarcasm]

    From the list:
    Hon. Coble
    (R) North Carolina, 6th

    I can also say that Howard Coble is my rep and based on some of the letters I have received from him on issues that I wrote about he'll vote pro-gun.

    Did I miss something on the list of folks on the House Judicial committee? I didn't see that Gene Taylor was on it. As for Trent, well... he's a senator.

    If those two WERE on the committee that could bury this thing in committee, I'd sleep a LOt better tonight. As it is, it looks like it has a decent chance of getting out of committee. The deck is stacked.
