Special Alert - New Attack By Chicago Anti-Gunners
SCHEME WOULD MAKE GUNS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE
The Chicago Gun Grabbing Machine has launched another desperate attack on the right to keep and bear arms. The perpetrator of this latest crime against our Constitution is long-time gun-hater, Rep. LaShawn K. Ford. Ford has been a fixture in the gun control movement for nearly a decade and has always been at the forefront of efforts to strip you of your gun rights. Ford's latest folly, HR1136, issues a demand to Congress to ban or severely restrict firearm shipments by rail. The effect of such a transportation ban would significantly increase the retail price of firearms. In other words, just another step to make free exercise of the 2nd Amendment too expensive for the average citizen. Every weekend dozens of Ford's constituents try to blast each other into oblivion. So, how does Ford respond? By attacking the rights of lawful gun owners, of course. It's time for you, the law-abiding firearm owner, to stand up for your rights.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS:
Phone Rep. Ford's office at (217) 782-5962 and politely tell the person on the phone that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you do not appreciate Ford's backdoor attempt to trample your gun rights.
Contact your own State Representative by calling the capitol switchboard at (217) 782-2000. When you are connected with your representative's office, politely tell the person on the phone that you are a law-abiding gun owner who is sick and tired of efforts to diminish your rights. Politely ask that your representative vote AGAINST HR1136.
Pass this alert along to your family and friends and ask them to call too.
Post this alert to any and all Internet blogs, bulletin boards, and social media sites to which you may belong.
Remember: Gun control is a disease, and you are the cure.
