Default National Coalition to stop the gun ban formed

Passing this info on from the Fl Concealed Carry Forum.
Make name and state representative changes as necessary.

For Immediate Release:

Florida Carry and over 25 other State and National organizations form "National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban"


When the 1994 “Assault Weapons” Ban was proposed many gun owners thought that the bill had no chance of passing. They were shocked that the bill actually became law. Sen. Feinstein is at it again with a legislative proposal that will be published as early as today. Her new ban is even more restrictive than the 1994 ban.

We are beginning to see supposedly pro-gun Republicans and Democrats waiver on the issue. There is an excellent chance that the new ban will pass the Senate leaving us with one chance to stop it in the House. We hope you agree that absolutely no “compromise” on our fundamental right to keep and bear arms is possible. This bill can’t be amended in to something acceptable, it must be stopped outright.

Florida Carry, in conjunction with other State and National groups, has formed a national coalition to defeat the Obama/Biden/Feinstein gun and magazine ban proposal.

Over 25 state and federal organizations have so far joined the “National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban,” including all of the groups listed below;
The objective of the coalition is to kill the proposals. Period. Not to “compromise” by saddling gun owners with restrictions and whining “It was the best we could get.” Nothing less than the complete defeat of the Obama/Biden/Feinstein proposals will suffice;
All coalition members have agreed that “compromise” is not an option; AND
Coalition members launched with a coordinated “Open Letter to Members of Congress”, coordinated press releases and membership alerts.

“The National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban will work to defeat all proposed federal gun control and to punish any congressional representative who supports it. We find absolutely nothing about Senator Feinstein’s proposal to be acceptable: Not banning guns, not registering guns and gun owners via the National Firearms Act, not registering private gun sales via the National Instant Check System, and most certainly not expanding BATFE police powers which are already being abused.
“'Compromise,' as our opposition defines it, is a process in which freedom-loving Americans lose slightly less than under the original proposal. Consequently, in the most egregious attack on Second Amendment freedom in our history, we will not 'compromise.'”

SUBJECT: Stop the Gun Ban!

Dear ,

Florida Carry, Inc. has helped to create the “National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban”, a coalition of over 25 national and state organizations which continues to grow with each day. Today, you received an “Open Letter to Members of Congress” from Florida Carry and coalition members.

The underlying goal is to defeat all gun control proposals being foisted on the American public by President Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and others. Coalition members have agreed that in this most egregious attack on the Second Amendment, no compromise is possible. The proposals must be stopped outright.

Any legislator who supports such measures will be subject to coordinated actions of coalition members. I want you to know that I support the National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban, will monitor its alerts and recommendations, and will actively work to defeat hostile legislators in all future elections.
Please help support the law abiding gun owners of Florida and the United States by just saying “NO!” to all gun and magazine ban or registration proposals.

Respectfully yours,

(your name)
