Not Letting the Aurora Crisis Go To Waste





In the wake of the Colorado tragedy, anti-freedom legislators have predictably seized it as an opportunity to punish those who were not responsible – the nation’s law-abiding gun owners.

Using the cybersecurity bill as a vehicle, an amendment (S.A. 2575) banning the sale and possession of magazines and other feeding devices with capacity exceeding 10 rounds has been added, and will be voted on by the Democrat-controlled senate sometime next week.

Sponsors of the magazine ban include Democratic Senators Frank Lautenberg (NJ), Barbara Boxer (CA), Jack Reed (RI), Bob Menendez (NJ), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Chuck Schumer (NY) and Dianne Feinstein (CA).

Schumer has characterized the ban as “a reasonable restriction” and “rational”. Co-sponsor Lautenberg is on record stating that high capacity magazines are not necessary for “shooting a duck,” as if the Second Amendment protects bearing arms only for sporting purposes.

These anti-freedom Senators have apparently overlooked the fact that the Second Amendment is a check against government tyranny. It is therefore absurd to suggest it can be “restricted” by the very government it limits. It is time they were taught a civics lesson, and you’re just the people to deliver it.



IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!



You need you to do two things:

Email US Senators representing NC Richard Burr (R - ****) and Kay Hagan (D – 0).


Email US Senate Minority Leaders: Mitch McConnell, Jon Kyl, John Thune, and John Barrasso. These Senators are likely on our side and in a position to influence the fate of the bad amendment.

DELIVER THIS MESSAGE



Suggested Subject: "No magazine restrictions"



To NC Senators Burr and Hagan:

Dear Senator,

As a North Carolina gun owner I am outraged and insulted by the proposal to limit access of law-abiding citizens to only reduced-capacity magazines for modern defensive firearms.

This law, submitted as S.A. 2575 to the “cybersecurity” bill, makes it clear that some US Senators believe that law-abiding North Carolinians should only be trusted to defend themselves and families with obsolete weapons.

This amendment also makes it clear that certain Senators believe that Second Amendment rights are subject to what they deem “necessary.” This is a dangerous encroachment on Constitutional rights that cannot stand.

I expect you to do everything in your power to defeat this misguided law. I will be watching your actions carefully through updates from Grass Roots North Carolina.

Sincerely,





To Senate Minority Leadership:
