    URGENT ALERT!!!
    Anti-gun Zealots Trying To Ram Disarmament Bill Through Senate

    You'd think that when rabid, anti-gun legislators like Sen. Charles
    Schumer and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy join together to pass anti-gun
    legislation, it would raise a few red flags.

    But these two New York Democrats are currently planning to roll over
    gun owners with H.R. 2640 -- legislation which would bar you from
    owning guns if:

    * You are a battle-scarred veteran suffering from Post Traumatic
    Stress Disorder; or

    * As a kid, you were diagnosed with ADHD.

    Not to mention the fact that your ailing grandfather could have his
    entire gun collection seized, based only on a diagnosis of
    Alzheimer's (and there goes the family inheritance).

    Gun owners have been desperately fighting this bill for several
    months. You will remember that it passed in the House with an
    unrecorded voice vote in June and was later passed out of the Senate
    Judiciary Committee -- also without a recorded vote.

    Sen. Schumer is pushing hard to pass this legislation -- dubbed the
    Veterans Disarmament Act -- so he is circulating an
    "agreement" which
    would waive the Senate rules in order to bring up and pass the bill.

    This agreement could come about in the next few hours or the next
    couple of days!

    This agreement is extremely diabolical, as it would eliminate the
    ability of pro-gun senators to offer amendments which would clean up
    the legislation... and would grease the skids for immediate passage!

    But there is good news: In order for Schumer's "agreement" to
    prevail, he must get "unanimous consent." This means that just ONE
    single senator can block it.

    ACTION: Please contact your two U.S. Senators RIGHT AWAY and urge
    them to OBJECT to Senator Chuck Schumer's "unanimous consent
    agreement" to steamroll H.R. 2640, the McCarthy anti-gun bill.

    You can use the pre-written message below and send it as an e-mail by
    visiting the GOA Legislative Action Center at
    http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm (where phone and fax numbers
    are also available).

    Same here, thanks, Mike, and welcome to Richard!

    As an aside: Is it just possible that this pernicious piece of legislation is in part prompted by Government fears of armed vets leading and training we , the people, should the tree of Liberty ever need watering?Or maybe I am just getting paranoid again?

    Actually, it's just the government (aka politicians) not giving a damn about vets, and not thinking before acting. To see how the philosopher kings treat their former troops, read this.

    So what else is new.
