    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:
