Assault Weapons Ban is NOT Over

You’ve probably heard the news this week that the U.S. Senate decided to drop Dianne Feinstein’s infamous Assault Weapons Ban bill from deliberations. Many gun owners rejoiced when the news broke, but it’s not over. Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced this week that, though the Feinstein bill was dropped, he will see to it that universal background checks are incorporated into a new bill, as well as amendments which will include very similar assault weapons ban language. He has promised to allow this new bill to voted on at the Senate floor, sometime after April 8, 2013.

Now is the time to contact your senators to voice your opposition to this illegal move to grab your guns. We all know that “universal background check” is a watered-down code name for universal gun registration and confiscation. Reid also explicitly plans to include language in the new bill which would put limits on high capacity magazines, as well outlawing private firearm sales and transfers.

Don’t think for a second that this is over. It is not the time to sit back and ignore what the Senate is trying to do. It is the time to get on the phone and call Washington, write Washington, email Washington, and show up in person to your senators’ regional offices until they get so tired of hearing from us that they back down.
