Rep. Stockman has just told GOA (who told me) that he and Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) will be circulating a letter asking the House leadership to refuse to bring up anti-gun legislation that is NOT supported by a majority of the Republican members of the House of Representatives.
Stockman’s effort could potentially kill ALL GUN CONTROL in the House.
If 117 congressmen sign a letter demanding that Boehner not bring up a gun control bill opposed by those 117 congressmen, gun control will die. Without that letter, Democrats will join with anti-gun Republicans, and gun control is likely to pass.
Ask them to sign the Stockman-Broun letter which asks that “no gun legislation be brought to the floor of the House unless it has the support of a majority of our caucus.”
By doing so, you would oppose Obama’s national gun registry proposals, Senator Patrick Leahy’s anti-gun legislation (S. 54)- which increases penalties for existing laws and includes suspicious points regarding search and seizure of property- and all other gun bans or magazine limitations by Dianne Feinstein. I believe these proposals will not make the public safer and erode civil liberties enjoyed by millions of law-abiding Americans.
Again, please cosign the Stockman-Broun letter asking the House leadership not to bring up anti-gun legislation that is not supported by a majority of the Republican caucus.
