Feinstein will most likely introduce her Anti-2nd Amendment bill on January 22nd.

From my most recent NRA newsletter…

Feinstein will most likely introduce her bill on January 22nd. President Obama has said that gun control will be a “central issue” of his final term in office, and he has vowed to move quickly on it.  And yesterday, a story from The Blaze noted that Obama’s point man on gun control–Vice President Biden–has promised that Obama will pass a gun control bill by the end of the month.

Contact your members of Congress at 202-224-3121 to urge them to oppose Sen. Feinstein’s 2013 gun and magazine ban.  Our elected representatives in Congress must hear from you if we are going to defeat this gun ban proposal.  You can write your Representatives and Senators by using our “Write Your Representatives” tool here: http://www.nraila.org/get-involved-locally/grassroots/write-your-reps.aspx

Wolf Pack please don’t put it off another day… do it now!

To make it really easy you can copy and paste this letter and use the above linked NRA page that will allow you to email all of your elected state officials at the same time. If you can’t take five minutes do that then don’t complain when the ATF is kicking in your door at three in the morning….

    Done Sir! Hard copies to follow. Phone calls on business days.

    • Folks I just found this article at The Washington Post – White House weighs broad gun-control agenda in wake of Newtown shootings http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/white-house-weighs-broad-gun-control-agenda-in-wake-of-newtown-shootings/2013/01/05/d281efe0-5682-11e2-bf3e-76c0a789346f_print.html.

      Read the fine print folks…

      In addition to potential legislative proposals, Biden’s group has expanded its focus to include measures that would not need congressional approval and could be quickly implemented by executive action, according to interest-group leaders who have discussed options with Biden and key Cabinet secretaries.

      Yep, you read it correctly – executive action – not need congressional approval… Could be why they’re so cocky because they know what that they are going to get what they want by executive order. Dictator rule my friends…

        Well slap me silly. I figured that things would be done in the dark and underhanded.
        Nothing good has ever come of those lerking in the shadows waiting to take all you have and all you can be, even to your very life and freedom.
        They have intended no good to anyone not even those that go along with their subversive actions.

      • They are looking at what is regulatory and what is legislated law. They CAN change regulatory without going to Congress. Through this process I would look at limitations on importation and such, not domestic manufacture. But this is bad enough. A lot of lesser expensive ammunition is imported, as is most “military surplus”.

      • I looked at all my firearms…….none has ‘ASSAULT’ printed anywhere, even in the paperwork. So, I made DEFENSE labels for them all!

        So, I’m good…..right? All I have is DEFENSE firearms.

        AND, Congress has last word on the Presidential Pen…..no matter what TV tells us!

    • “If you can’t take five minutes do that then don’t complain when the ATF is kicking in your door at three in the morning….”

      How many people reading this will give up their weapons WITHOUT a fight?

      The way I see it, if I get 2 of them before they get me, I WIN!

      GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!

    Well decided I had to stand for something or stand for nothing:
    REJECT SENATOR FEINSTEINS BILL AGAINST GUN OWNERS:
    I wish to address the unreasonalble attitude that has been drawn towards law abiding citizens owning guns of any sort, caliber, or action.
    It is has been forever overlooked, ignored and dismissed that it is not the guns fault. Most assuredly it is not. But it is most certainly the fault of the criminal mind behind the gun with the intent of doing the harm. You cannot in all honesty blame the entire citizenry of this Republic of the United States for the actions of the few.
    The mindset of Senator Feinstein is not for the well being of any of the citizens who are law abiding with no intent to do any person harm. She continues to ignore that citizens have the right to protect themselves.
    She will argue in finite detail that the citizens of this Republic do not have good sense. That they have to be controlled, corraled, shackled by her efforts. This is not the way our forefathers intended, lived or thought. Our heritage and CONSTITUTION demands that we have the freedom to own guns. This is not the way of the “LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE.”
    I say that it is a sad day in out history and in our country when efforts to control a nations people to this extent is seen.
    Reject any and all efforts in this vain, TODAY, TOMORROW and FOREVER. The intent is not to our good. Yours, Mine or Ours.

  3. Russia is getting freer , we are getting totalitarian ………whats wrong with that picture ?

  4. I will be on the road until Tuesday so that’s when mine will start.

  5. Wrote to my Fed pitifull-excuses for Senators plus my House Rep over a week ago. Gotta get those letters to state idiots out early this week. Methinks the state is gonna wait and see what the Feds do.

    Personally, I think Feinstein shows huge irresponsibility in perusing a catalog to pick out anything scary-looking in determining what she thinks is an assault weapon. And she proudly admits that’s what she did. If she’s that irresponsible, perhaps she shouldn’t so irresponsibly represent the citizens. What a no-brainer!

    • Most anti-gun legislation is written and passed by people who know nothing, don’t want to know anything about guns. Here in New Jersey we have an “assault weapons” ban. You can’t purchase any AK of any kind. Nor any M-1 Carbine. But as long as they don’t have a folding stock, bayonet lug or flash surpressor (and any muzzle device must be permanant) You can buy any of a plethora of AR-15 platform rifles. And you can’t get an M-1 carb as mentioned, but you can have a Mini-14/30. They know none of this does any good. But it shows that these pathetic politicians “did something”. The ignorant masses (including many gun owners) can sleep soundly knowing that there elected officials did SOMETHING! They did nothing! More people are murdered with hammers than “assault weapons”.

      And if anyone thinks that they will stop with semi auto everthings, I know from anti-gun friends; they are just as affraid of ALL firearms. One wants all guns limited to single shot. Others are so affraid of guns and gun owners that they believe that any of us who own guns are just one “mad” or “drunk” from an Aurora or Sandy Hook! They are unarmed and defenceless anf fear those who are not. So don’t think this will stop with Glocks and ARs. They want them all.

      And if you didn’t vote in Novembers election: THIS IS YOUR FAULT!

      • our vote does not count in the presidential election …….its a stroke . When the president is elected like all other officials ….by popular vote ……..then , and only then will it be the peoples fault . O was elected by a wide magin by the electorate , but won only a narrow victory by popular vote . When the discrepancy is that far out of balance , no way can you blame the people . just sayin

  6. Tactical G-Ma says:

    Done

  7. While I expect this will pass the Senate, I still believe that it will fail the House. And there are still some Democrats in both houses who need a pro gun voter’s support.

  8. Unfortunately, my 2 Senators and Congressman are all NRA “F”. They vote against all pro gun and for all anti gun bills.

    • Ethan,
      Sorry to hear that, But you write them and tell them what you want anyway. Tell them they had your vote in the past but make it clear that they are in grave danger of losing your support in the future. It may be a lie but…

  9. riverrider says:

    sent mine several weeks ago. will follow up with an office visit this week. if you don’t hear from me you’ll know why:). joined the nra weeks ago too, 3 year membership deal. that marine’s letter has hit the msm, gone viral. can’t wait to see if they call him a patriot, or a nutjob. we got a weasel crapbag for a senator, i’ll write/call him anyway. but folks, all this is well and good but will have zero effect. its time to get right with the lord and yourself, time to choose up sides. best set your mind to it.

  10. I contacted and emailed my representatives last week and have heard back from one, via email. Of course, I got the usual ” Like you, I believe the right to bear arms is guaranteed by the Constitution’s Second Amendment, BUT…”

    Using M.D.’s letter, I’ve just sent off more emails, and will send the letters out in tomorrow’s mail, after I call their offices. No matter how inundated they get with calls, emails and letters, I have a suspicion that our wishes will be ignored via executive order, which IMO would be treason.

  11. axelsteve says:

    I think Impeachment will be in order if the prez does this.

  12. Newburban Prepper says:

    I started out with a few modifications of the NRA form letter and got a bit carried away. I think only two original sentences remain. :) Feel free to reuse if you like.

    Dear Congressman:

    As your constituent, I strongly urge you to oppose any legislation to ban so-called “assault weapons” and “large” ammunition magazines. In my opinion, such legislation, while emotionally satisfying, will do little to reduce the gun crimes that are perpetrated upon innocent victims by violent criminals. Rather, it will further restrict the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens while criminals continue to acquire their weapons of choice through already illegal channels. But let us, for a moment, imagine a world where we take this “ban” position to it’s logical conclusion using a couple of similar scenarios.

    According to the CDC, “…more deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than by all deaths from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders combined” (443,000 annually). Given these horrifying statistics, why is there no proposed ban from Congress on cigarettes? Using the same logic that is used on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, it is clear that such chemicals “…are not necessary.” At the very least, can’t we agree that a restriction in the length of “high capacity” cigarettes is in order?

    Similarly, according to the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, “…in 2010, 10,530 people died in crashes that were linked to speeding.” Given that the top speed limits in most states are 70 mph, why is there no proposed ban on cars that can exceed 70 mph? Shouldn’t we be proposing the immediate elimination of new vehicles that can exceed this limit? Surely we can agree that a Corvette, (with a top speed of 190 mph), “…is not necessary…” for daily commuting or recreational driving! Perhaps a ban on these high speed vehicles can be expanded to all law-abiding owners of vehicles that have the potential to exceed these limits? We could ensure compliance by requiring our citizens to install governors (pun intended) on their cars that must be registered and inspected annually. Think of the lives that could be saved!

    Or perhaps Congress would like to restrict the intake of our sugar which, according the journal of Nature, can contribute to as many as 35 million deaths worldwide each year! Next we could restrict our intake of coffee. It is apparent to me that no one really needs a $4 soy mocha latte with Madagascar cinnamon when a simple cup of Joe is enough!

    The obvious argument here is not whether or not such excesses of cars, cigarettes, sugar or guns are necessary. We can probably all agree that they are, in fact, not needed at all. The point, however, is that when we start allowing our government bodies to restrict our lives through legislation based on what they (or their constituents) believe is needed for us, we erode the liberties of all through the good intentions of protecting a few.

    In the coming weeks, I am quite certain that some legislation around gun control will be introduced in Congress in an effort to mitigate the risk of future tragedies like the the one at Sandy Hook Elementary. While you and your colleagues debate such legislation, I urge you to carefully weigh the true impact of such laws against the restriction of freedoms on law-abiding gun owners. With a thoughtful and data-driven debate, perhaps we can instead focus our efforts on legislation to enhance school security and improve our nation’s ailing mental health system. I look forward to your response.

    Sincerely,

    • The scary part is I’m sure there are congress critters who would love to ban fast cars, cigarettes, and sugar, too.

      • Newburban Prepper says:

        Unlikely. These are cash cows for Congress. Better to just call them evil and raise taxes on them than to eliminate them altogether. :)

  13. FarmerKin says:

    Sent mine this morning. Reminded them of their oath, asked them to oppose any new gun restrictions or bans, and asked them to uphold the Constitution.

  14. Snide comment about “don’t complain” if they are kicking my door in at 3 am? Guess what? I am deep in enemy territory and trying to escape. Boxer and Feinstein are my senators and Jim Costa is my congressman. I have sent correspondance to Feinstein for all the good that does. There are millions of reasonable citizens in California but we are overwhelmed by the subsidized breeding programs in the cities. I am leaving here soon but the problem is the national influence these traitors have. It might be a mute point if the dude uses executive orders to circumvent The law.

    • It’s not a moot point though. Every time the President does an end run around the Congress, he shows his dictatorial nature more. This will be important for building up opposition.

    • Notsomuch says:

      I left CA last year and I can assure you that you’ll never regret it. The only thing stopping you is you. Make it happen sooner rather than later.

  15. Alittle2late says:

    Done x3 and renewed my NRA membership with the money I saved not smoking the last 5 days. win win!

  16. ProfessorClosetCon says:

    I used Newburban Prepper’s version — THANK YOU — I slightly edited it for a peronalized approach. All of my Reps are now Republicans as I escaped New York awhile back. But executive order will circumvent all of this….

  17. Stealth Spaniel says:

    NewurbanPrepper:
    Being a Libertarian, I almost wept at the truth of your letter! Finally-what business is it of Congress-be they left or right-to regulate the lives of the public?? Our lives are ours alone, to be used in the way we chose, according to our commitment to God (or lack there of), family, and self. Who the hell do these ELITES, these Wizards of Smart, think they are? We could care less if you are in Congress, a Harvard University Professor, CEO of General Electric, or whomever. Really, 99.9% of American Citizens don’t give a damn what title you bestow upon yourself, or how much of an over achiever you believe yourself to be!! Stay out of the public’s lives.
    Your letter is gracing my Facebook page-I hope that you approve!

  18. Funny,
    Our government believes that US citizens have a trust anymore?
    I grew up loving and trusting my government, but no longer, I believe they now feel they are smarter then their feeders.

    Our elected ‘friends’ seem to think my/your money is theirs to disperse for their popularity and ‘give’ to their favorite payback fund.

    So, My firearms are clean, loaded and video to see when they try to get them at 3 am!

  19. Here’s an idea: let’s see Feinstein and raise her. Amend the bill to ban all depictions of guns being fired and people being hit by bullets in all entertainment media (television, movies, video games, music, books, etc.). All preexisting media which has such depictions must be turned in to the government to be destroyed.

  20. Grumpy Vermonter says:

    Done

  21. i think that BIG BIG trouble is coming, and its going to be bestowed upon us before we even know what hit us. get ready people. #$%^ is gonna hit the fan. keep up on whatever intel you get. Bless us all and as i was told by someone today, who gave me some info…. God speed.

  22. private idaho says:

    seems to me people have forgotten that the 2nd ammendment ensures the
    rest of the constitution remains the way it is. an unarmed scociety in nothing more than voulenteer slaves.

  23. p idaho; They don’t teach the Constitution any more. I’ve had college professors tell me the 2nd Amendment only refers to a state militia. And he’s a conservative. The lefty’s that control our education system have done their evil work well!

  24. private idaho says:

    ethanp; yep the colleges have totally gone left but the scarey thing is our kids are being indoctrinated and at a young age, like first grade. and the anti gunners have forgoten the meaning of arms. the constitution doesnt say hunting rifles or pistols only, arms mean anything that can fire a projectal. i dont get whats so difficult about about the meaning of it.

  25. private; They “GET” it. They “choose” to misinterpret it. Conservative George Will, no friend of gun owners (I like him anyway) once said the only answer to guns in private hands was to repeal the 2nd Amendment. It will be interesting to see how Roberts votes when Obamas extra Constitutional executive ordes reach SCOTUS.

  26. I have come to the conclusion that all these letters are going to the same place. The circular file. It’s a noble effort but we are well past that point. Even states such as Texas, Wyoming, Mississippi are getting ready to pass legislation that new gun laws will not be enforced. That’s a direct challenge to the feds from states and it’s about time.
    For me I’ve decided to spend my time emulating TDL. What??? you say. Are you crazy Mexneck? No, I’m not. I’ve decided to be a community organizer just like TDL. Now what I’m organizing for is 180 degrees out from what he was organizing for but the fact is that local organization is effective. Direct communication works much better than a phone call that can be ignored or a letter than can be shredded or deleted. As TDL says he wants a civilian force as large as the Army. Me too, and I want them on the side of the Constitution. I’ve decided that I want to be successful at organizing and that means not arguing with the NRA’s most successful salesman of the year 4 years running. Think Nationally recruit locally.
