Feinstein Gun Ban Could Come up in the Senate Next Week

On Tuesday, the Senate is scheduled to begin consideration of
legislation to limit class action lawsuits -- a prime candidate for
so-called liberal "killer amendments," including the Feinstein amendment
to extend the ban on semiautomatic firearms and magazines.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has threatened to offer her semi-auto
ban to any "appropriate" legislative vehicle, and the class action bill
is about as "appropriate" as any on the Senate's legislative schedule.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) has, at his disposal, a variety
of parliamentary techniques to prevent Feinstein from offering the
semiautomatic ban. Back in March, he chose NOT to use these
parliamentary maneuvers during the debacle over the ill-fated gun
makers' protection act.

The debate over this pro-gun bill resulted in a free-for-all which led
to killer amendments being added to the bill -- amendments like the
Feinstein gun ban.

GOA is urging Frist to learn from his mistakes and to use his leadership
office to insure that the Feinstein amendment is not offered to S. 2062.

America is at a crossroads on the Second Amendment. If the pro-gun
community can succeed in killing the extension of the semi-auto ban (due
to expire on September 13) we will have inflicted a serious blow on the
anti-gun zealots -- a blow from which they will not soon recover.

If, on the other hand, Feinstein is successful in forcing her amendment
to the president's desk, Bush has indicated that he will sign the ban --
and the pro-gun community will be on the defensive and facing the
anti-gunners' next priority: a comprehensive gun registration scheme.

ACTION: Please contact Senate Majority Leader Frist. Tell him to use
whatever parliamentary tools are necessary to block consideration of the
Feinstein semi-auto ban -- particularly as an amendment to the class
action bill.

You can call Senator Frist at (202) 224-3344, or go to and select "Contact Senator Frist" under the
"About Senator Frist" heading to send a message similar to the one

Pre-written letter

Dear Senator Frist:

America is at a crossroads. If we are successful in blocking the
Feinstein semiautomatic ban, we will have inflicted a major blow to the
anti-gun community -- a blow from which it will not soon recover.

Therefore, we would urge you to use any parliamentary tools at your
disposal to prevent this amendment from being offered -- particularly to
the class action bill. Thank you.

Before they can convince you that rights emanate from them (the government), they must first eliminate God. They are working 24/7 to accomplish this.

If the people have become so apathetic that they will not vote out all the liberal scum (republican and democrat alike), the only solution is Constitutional Convention II the sequel. Let's get it right this time.

    thanks wolf. I got my email alert from GOA and printed the suggested letter, made several copies and will pass them around to get signed by everyone I can. Then I will mail them.
