    Subject: Action needed - NOW

    Dear MSSA Friends,

    The Associated Press reports that Montana's Senator Max Baucus will support Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.
    http://www.missoulian.com/articles/2009/07/31/bnews/br73.txt

    This notwithstanding that MSSA, the NRA, GOA and CCRKBA all oppose confirmation of Sotomayor.

    There is little doubt that Sotomayor is soft on or hostile to the Second Amendment. She deliberately dodged Senator Coburn's questions on the subject, certainly not something a nominee who respects the Second Amendment would do. A Senator from Montana who supports Sotomayor is clearly is not representing Montanans.

    Max promised me that he'd turned over a new leaf on gun rights issues, and for a while it seemed as if he actually had. Apparently, Max doesn't spend enough time in Montana to understand how strongly we feel about the right to bear arms. He also doesn't understand that in Montana his word is supposed to be his bond.

    For Max to support Sotomayor is a direct and serious disrespect of you, MSSA, and all Montana gun owners - it's a slap in the face.

    I wrote to the staffer who handles gun issues for Baucus, Heather O'Laughlin, and asked her to inform Max that MSSA opposes the Sotomayor's confirmation. I received no response. I sent Heather another email asking her if she'd actually told Max about the MSSA opposition to Sotomayor (sometimes D.C. staffers think they run the office). Again, she didn't respond. So, I don't actually know if O'Laughlin told Baucus of MSSA's opposition. If not, Max needs to find somebody new to fill that office slot.

    Nevertheless, the buck stops with Max. He's the guy who wants your vote so he can return to Washington.

    I urge you to forward this email to EVERY Montana gun owner for whom you have an email address.

    ALL of you, send an email to
    "Heather O'Loughlin" <heather_o'loughlin@baucus.senate.gov>

    Copy your email to
    "Max Baucus"<max@baucus.senate.gov>

    Tell O'Laughlin to Tell Max: NO SOTOMAYOR!

    Keep sending to Baucus. Keep sending to your friends.

    The Senate vote on Sotomayor will be next week.

    Maybe Max will get a clue about how strongly we feel about our right to bear arms in Montana.

    Thanks for your help!!

    The pro 2A lobby should not be scoring Senators on how they vote on Sotomayor.

    This is the sort of thing that only serves to alienate 2A'sdemocratic allies.

    then start a massive e-mail campaign in LA,start today - individuals, gun clubs, gun stores, churches, etc include the information from Montana and Georgia if you wish to use

    this from GA - United States Senator For Georgia Saxby Chambliss

    Judge Sonia Sotomayor
    Judge Sotomayor has a compelling personal story. As Americans, we should be proud she has been nominated. However, the role of the Senate is to give the president advice and consent, and we are required to go beyond the personal side of the nominee.


    After reviewing cases she decided, talking with lawyers who know her, and reviewing speeches and her testimony, I have concluded that I cannot support Judge Sotomayor’s nomination. I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, and I am concerned about her reasoning in cases where she has considered this issue. I am concerned about her apparent leaning to use foreign law to interpret America’s own laws and Constitution. Her lack of well-reasoned opinions is also troublesome.
    You can read my floor speech on this issue by visiting my website, here.

    Pro 2A lobbies (NRA, GOA, SAF, CCRKBA, SAS, etc) and other Pro 2A Organizations which are not lobbies (MSSA, Gun clubs,Hunt clubs)- it is theirDUTY and their members DUTY to score Senators on any vote they make be it related to "ARMS" (firearms, knives, tomahawks, etc) - we must root out evil where ever it is found, regardless of the organization.

    Since 1909 (at least), we have been on a slope of downward movement in the REPUBLIC (notice I did not say democracy) with freedom and liberty being tossed out with the bath water just like a baby due to this kind of thinking - "only serves to alienate 2A'sdemocratic allies" - forget the "PC Crapola", there has been too much comprise and giving away CITIZENS Rights, Liberty, Freedom, and out Tax Dollars in the USA and overseas.

    Gun Control is People Control - look to Europe to Asia to Africa to the USA and anywhere else in the world. In the last 100 years, 55 million Citizens and Subjects around the world of their own country have been killed by their own government.

    To borrow the words, "They are either against us or with us", "no riding the fence", and in 1968 - "there's not a dime's worth of difference between a republican and a democrat".

    Every True Real American not just "ARMS" owners (80,000,000 plus) should be members of the U.S. Constitutional Party, then we would win every election and get this country turned around 180 degrees headed in the Right Correct direction. The Silent Majority has been silent for far too long - at least 100 years.

    Did you know TEXAS in 1873, while TEXAS Citizens were still fighting Indians, the Carpet Bagger Blue Belly so called ReConstruction Yankees in charge of TEXAS, outlawed OPEN CARRY in TEXAS !
