    URGENT: E-Mail Your U.S. Senators Today!
    Don't Sacrifice D.C.'s Gun Laws and Threaten Public Safety

    Dear Brady Campaign Member,

    Very soon, the U.S. Senate could consider dangerous legislation, S. 3265, that would repeal the strong gun laws in our Nation's Capital.

    This will put everyone who lives or visits here — our families, and friends, as well as tourists from around the world — at great risk!

    Click here to e-mail your U.S. Senators today!

    Urge them to "Oppose S. 3265 and any other attempts to repeal the gun laws in our Nation's Capital."

    Please act today to help us protect public safety and homeland security.

    The legislation, sponsored by Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Jon Tester (D-MT), would strip the democratically elected D.C. City Council of its authority to pass gun laws to protect its citizens. It would also repeal virtually all of D.C.'s strong gun laws.

    Repealing Washington, D.C.'s court-approved gun laws would threaten the safety of residents, those who work here, and visitors from all over the world. At a time when terrorists continue to look for ways to attack our nation, this amendment would be reckless and irresponsible.

    Please e-mail your Senators as soon as possible and forward this e-mail to friends. Your Senators need to hear from people who support sensible gun laws immediately!

    Thanks for all you do to prevent gun violence.

    Sincerely,

    Paul Helmke, President
    Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
    Here's what I would write if I were you:

    Subject: SUPPORT S. 3265 and any other attempts to repeal the gun laws in our Nation's Capital.
    I received this from the Brady Campaign. I don't like the Brady Campaign. I like guns. I'm from [Your State Here]. I love to vote.
    Thank you.
    [Your Name Here]

    I pray for the day when Paul Helmke is brought up on Federal charges for fraud, falsifying a government document, and weapons trafficking based on his falsely-obtained FFL.

    And if not that, I pray that he will someday go "Carl Rowan" on some local thug, and have his hypocritical face plastered all over the media.

    Calls were already made to my Senators last week...

    I'd recommend something like:

    As your constituent, I urge your support for S.3265.

    Over the May 1-2 weekend, four separate shootings occurred in Washington DC. Across the river, where self-defense is legal, none took place.

    Please consider the safety of where you live and work.

    S.3265 will go a long way toward allowing residents to be proactive and responsible for their own safety than reactive and relying on one of Chief Lanier's finest (to write the report).

    It will also have a direct effect on my next vote.

    Add a PS to stop the "Terrorist Loop Hole" backdoor gun control BS homeland
    incompetence is pushing. After all they claim it is reasonable, so we know it is bad.

    I heard a news cast on the radio, yesterday I think. More BS about the "gunshow loophole" where you don't have to do an instant background check to buy a weapon. I call BS at every gunshow I've ever gone to the "instant verify" call in was used.
    Of course any deals in the parking lot buy individuals weren't checked but that happens any time any where.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson
