Congressional Second Amendment Leader Under Massive Attack

Rep. Marilyn Musgrave has more than lived up to expectations during
her first term in Congress. She worked with Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA)
to found the Second Amendment Caucus in the U.S. House. It has a
membership that includes the most aggressive pro-gun members of the
House.

Under Rep. Musgrave's leadership, the Caucus organized a presentation
by Dr. John Lott and Dr. Bob Cottrell to inform congressional offices
about the truth of the ban on semi-autos. It was very effective and
was very helpful for many of the staff who needed "ammunition" and
talking points in opposition to the ban.

Musgrave continued in the U.S. House what she often did in the
Colorado legislature -- she stood up to the leadership of her own
party. In Congress these confrontations have included resisting tax
increases and the further socializing of the American medical system.

Gun owners need to have Marilyn Musgrave back in Congress so that we
can go on the offensive here in Washington on the gun issue.
Musgrave is poised to lead this effort in 2005, but first she must
win her second term.

A liberal group has launched an ad campaign with an estimated budget
of well over $1,000,000 aimed at defeating Musgrave and replacing her
with a former state senator who supports gun control.

One of the ads shows an actress (who looks very much like Musgrave)
stealing a wristwatch from a corpse in a coffin. In another ad, the
Musgrave look-alike is shown stealing from a soldier's burning house
while he is fighting in Iraq. Outrageous, yes. But remember the
philosophy of Hitler's chief propagandist: tell a big enough lie
often enough and it will be believed.

Musgrave has graduated to the big leagues, and it costs plenty to
play in the majors. I am asking you to join with me in personally
contributing to the reelection campaign of this courageous champion
of the Second Amendment.

Her defeat would send a very loud and negative message to the
majority of wobbly members of Congress. Namely, it's O.K. to talk
pro-gun, but don't do anything about it or the liberal big money
groups will pile on and defeat you. And, don't do anything to ruffle
the feathers of the leadership of your own party.

We cannot allow that to happen. Please contribute online to
Musgrave's campaign right now at http://www.musgrave2004.com -- the
election is now just a few days away.

If you prefer, you can send a check by mailing the form below -- but
please, do it right away. Musgrave simply must be able to match the
huge flood of money that her opponents are dumping into her campaign.

Sincerely,

Larry Pratt
Executive Director

Done

$25

I hope I don't see threads asking me to give money to every politician who's in a fight with George Soros! I hate the bastard, but his pockets are deeper than mine.

oh it's not that dude, im not trying to be a panhandler for her, but she DID do some serious business on the pro-gun side setting up that caucus. She's got guts just not enough influence.....yet. If she can get another term she might very well become as strong as Ron Paul. So I'm not trying to spam out the board, dude.

Most of the mail I get from candidates goes back with a note to PUT UP and then I'll donate.
This woman has more than met that demand.
Mail sent with check enclosed.
