The new Congress has just started warming their
seats filled with more conservatives, and we're already
getting the chance to show our unified support for some
great legislation -- starting with a bill that strongly
supports our Second Amendment rights.
According to CNSNews.com, Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) has
introduced a bill protecting the right of law-abiding
Americans to use guns in self-defense.
HR 47, the "Citizens' Self-Defense Act", would specifically
protect the right of law-abiding citizens to use handguns,
rifles and shotguns in defending themselves, their families
or their homes. It would also allow people whose self-
defense rights have been violated by any government entity
to bring legal action in federal court.
Remember the news stories over the last couple of years,
about husbands and fathers who were arrested after
shooting home-invaders, because the *homeowner* possessed
a firearm for protecting his family? This bill could put
an END to that kind of nonsense.
Let's join together to push through this common-sense
TAKE ACTION: Tens of millions of patriotic conservatives
and law-abiding, gun-owning Americans voted in November.
We love the statement that John Michael Snyder of the
Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms
(CCRKBA) made: "America is ready to really sock it to
the anti-gun media, entertainment personalities, and
ecclesiastical holier-than-thous, and the political
lapdogs who try to work their wretched will."
Hard to argue with that. :-)
HR 47 has been referred to the House Committee on the
Judiciary. We must NOT let it get stuck there -- we need
to let Congress know that we want SWIFT consideration
of this bill! Send a message for FREE to your
Representative, asking him or her to support HR 47, the
"Citizens' Self-Defense Act":
NOTE: Be sure to send this Alert to everyone you know
who wants to see a strong pro-Second Amendment bill
passed, right out of the gate. Thank you!
