I got this and thought that I would pass it on
PatriotPetitions.US has launched a national campaign entreating
> our President, House of Representatives and Senate to reject
> legislation renewing the 1994 Clinton-Feinstein-Schumer Gun-Control
> Act schedule to sunset on 13 September 2004. Please read this
> brief description of the campaign and let your voice be heard on
> this matter.
> Though House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says "The votes in the House
> are not there" to renew the measure, Feinstein and Schumer will
> press for a roll call vote in order to politicize this legislation
> prior to the upcoming presidential election.
> For thirty years, the Left has used the "safety" claim as
> the foundation for its strategy of "incremental encroachment"
> on the Second Amendment to achieve its ultimate goal of gun
> confiscation, and the Feinstein-Schumer legislation preventing
> law-abiding citizens from owning semi-automatic rifles (so-called
> and decidedly misnamed "assault weapons") for lawful purposes, is
> no exception. Such laws claim, ostensibly, to protect law-abiding
> citizens. Of course, only law-abiding citizens comply with these
> restrictions -- and at their own peril. Criminals don't care
> if the weapon they are using comport with the 23,000 federal,
> state and local gun restrictions already on the books.
> Ms. Feinstein made clear her real objective after passage of
> Feinstein-Schumer in 1994: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in
> the Senate...for an outright ban, picking up every one of them,
> Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in, I would have done it."
> Reject renewal of the 1994 Clinton-Feinstein-Schumer Gun-Control
> Please join fellow Patriots on the frontlines in defense of our
> Constitutional liberties.

THE FEDERALIST has just announced that Bush's handlers have stated that the POTUS wiill sign an AWB Bill if congress gets one to him. I have signed the above petition. Piss poor timing on Bush's part, and my support for him is just about done for. He and Skerry now share the same position on AWB, and the demos have come out in praise of Bush for his most recent screw-up!
