Default "Compromise" bill represents the most far-reaching gun ban in years

http://www.gunowners.org/a061807.htm

ACTION:

1. Please urge your Senators to OPPOSE the gun control bill (HR 2640) which was snuck through the House last week by anti-gun Democrats. Some people are saying this bill is a positive step for gun owners, but realize this ONE SIMPLE FACT: Rep. Carolyn McCarthy and Sen. Chuck Schumer are the lead sponsors of this legislation! These two have NEVER once looked out for your Second Amendment rights!!!

2. Please use the contact information below -- and the pre-written letter -- to help direct your comments to them, and circulate this alert to as many gun owners as you can. It is imperative that we remind gun owners nationwide that gun control DOES NOT work to reduce crime; that, to the contrary, gun control HAS DISARMED millions of law-abiding citizens; and that the answer to tragedies like Virginia Tech is to REPEAL the "gun free zones" which leave law-abiding victims defenseless.

Why the hell did the NRA support this?

The only 2 gun legislations that make sense to me are instant background checks and violent felons being restricted (they should rot in jail or die anyways). I've even flip-flopped on the issue of non violent felons not being allowed to own firearms, they should. It should stop there.

You're exactly right!
