This is a vote (it is a little confusing) VOTE NO (the question is on the left)

This should be on every forum here.

Also send President Bush a letter to the effect of: renew the AW ban and you lose my vote

President Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

There it is you have the address and the info let him no you mean business.

#3104 I'm going to put this on the counter at the gun store that I work at tomorrow! I'll also give a copy to the VP of the Assoc. of NJ Rifle and Pistol Clubs, maybe we can get it into the next newsletter.

The idea to sign such a petition is a great idea and I would be interested in signing a similar petition - but not this one. Nothing personal against the person who authored this petition, but this thing is terribly written! IMHO, signing this thing will only help to strengthen the unfortunate stereotype out there about gun owners. That said, I have not been sitting on my hands. I have sent, and continue to send, various letters to GWB, and numerous Reps and Senators stating my opposition to the AWB. The correspondence does not need to be fancy but I would highly recommend it be grammitically sound - just like a resume and cover letter. It will help lend more credibility to your purpose.

That petition is going to look like crap for our cause considering the miss spelled words it contains!!!!!!!!

I took a look and copied it to MS WORD and found no spelling errors. I could see that there were capitalizations were there should not be though. Maybe someone should email some corrections...? Just my 2/100ths of a buck. -William (#3134)

I think they will get the picture. I sent a link to all WI Senators and Congressmen. All they need is to know where you stand. That will accomplish that. I know a lot of WI hunters who wouldn't touch a AR-15 but are very pissed about 10rd handgun magazines.

A third grader could have written that petition better. There are commas where there should be periods. Half of the words are capitalized that shouldn't be. It should not have a semi-colon after "Dear Mr. President." The word defence should be defense. ETC...

I have signed this petition from other links. Now, everyone needs to start calling their Representatives in Congress and Senate. Call state legislators, govenors and local TV and Radio talk shows. Go out and do some research, that's just so you don't sound stupid. You can be as passionate about a subject as the next, but if you don't have a clue...well you get the picture. Here's a start [url=http://thomas.loc.gov]Library of Congress[/url]. Go and do a search for HR 2038, it is the Anti-Gunners answer to the so called Assault Weapons Ban. They want [b]EVERY[/b] semi-automatic rifle if it has a detachable box magazine. They want [b]ALL[/b] AR-15s no matter what! It's time to stop these Anti-Americans from trampling on the Constitution! ----------------------------------- "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." Benjamin Franklin, 1759
