    GRNC Alert 02-02-2011:
    Durbin's Carolyn McCarthyism In FAA Bill

    S. 223 CONTAINS DANGEROUS AMENDMENTS

    More word on the stealth gun control we alerted you to this afternoon. Rumors are running strong that Senator Richard Durbin (D-Illinois, of course) has designs of introducing some modern day McCarthyism into S. 223, which is an aviation bill dealing with the FAA. Of course we are speaking of the McCarthyism brought about by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-representing NY and the Brady Campaign) which is on the hunt to destroy your firearms freedoms. The word in the hallowed halls of Congress is that the McCarthy magazine ban might be only the beginning of this stealth attach on your rights.

    You must act now to stop this and let them know that you are watching. We have received assurances that Sen. Richard Burr is solid on this issue and will vote against any such amendments. So our focus will be with Sen. Kay Hagan's office.

    Make sure they know about this scheme and that they must oppose Carolyn McCarthy's Magazine Ban every step of the way whether it's attached as an amendment or not.

    And make sure they know you're watching.

    Please note that this is an aviation bill. If you do a search for gun related issues, it may not show up. Don't let this subterfuge throw you off the trail.

    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    * Call Sen. Kay Hagan's office:
    Senator Kay Hagan:

    http://hagan.senate.gov/contact/

    * Email Sen. Hagan's special liaison on gun issues, Sage Dunston, sage_dunston@hagan.senate.gov

    Make sure they know about this scheme and that they must oppose Carolyn McCarthy's Magazine Ban every step of the way whether it's attached as an amendment or not.

    And make sure they know you're watching.

    * Call Sen. Richard Durbin and thank him for outing any anti-gun Democrat foolish enough to vote for the amendment:

    Like what? How about some snips?

    I've heard this from several sources, and none of them have anything specific to say.

    I don't want to contact my reps over something baseless

    I don't bother with pragmatic statistics while discussing my constitutional rights. The issue is far less complex, to me. Free men should be able to act like free men.

    The amendment has not been revealed yet just that it is pending and it is from Lautenberg.

    I think I'll wait to see what it is I'm acting about. I'll be happy to read/act on new information when you get it, so keep us updated.

    Well duh- we can't know what's in a bill until it's passed and becomes law. So says a once esteemed lady of Congress who's name and significance seems to have been flushed out of my memory already....thank God.

    Go ahead and pass it, we'll figure it out later
