This is YOUR chance to tell Congress where YOU stand on gun rights! Dear Friend of Freedom: Have you ever had a traffic ticket, or have you ever fallen behind paying a bill? Most Americans have…and if Mayor Michael Bloomberg gets his way, each of these harmless infractions will be grounds for denying your Second Amendment rights. Parking ticket? No gun. Traffic ticket? No gun.* Late on a bill? NO GUN. This is just one of dozens of new gun control schemes to BAN your guns…REPEAL your right to carry a firearm for personal protection…RATION your firearm purchases…REGISTER your guns with the government...and, SURRENDER the Second Amendment to the United Nations. Why is legislation designed to strip you of your Second Amendment rights surfacing in the U.S. Congress, state legislatures and city halls across America? I'll tell you why…Because lawmakers are being bombarded with biased media polls that show Americans like you support MORE gun control laws. CNN, ABC, MSNBC, and CBS are holding up phony media polls that claim Americans like you want MORE gun control, MORE restrictions on gun ownership, and LESS freedom to carry a firearm for personal protection. A recent poll conducted by Time magazine claims 62% of Americans want to BAN commonly owned semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and pistols. An NBC News poll claims that a MAJORITY of Americans think gun control laws should be "made more strict." How could these polls be so wrong? Because they didn't ask YOU – a law-abiding gun owner and freedom-loving American – where YOU stand on our Second Amendment rights. That is why NRA's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) created the 2011 Truth About Gun Owners (TAG) Poll. And to help NRA-ILA battle back against the stacked polls that are driving a renewed push to ban your guns, please answer your NRA-ILA TAG Poll by CLICKING HERE NOW.
