To President George Bush, Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist:

We, the people of these United States, rightfully petition our President, House of Representatives and Senate in affirmation of the Second Amendment to our Constitution, and request that you reject legislation to renew the 1994 Clinton-Feinstein-Schumer gun-control law scheduled to sunset 13 September 2004.

Though House Majority Leader Tom DeLay says "The votes in the House are not there" to renew the measure, Feinstein and Schumer will press for a roll call vote in order to politicize this legislation prior to the upcoming presidential election. For thirty years, the Left has used the "safety" claim as the foundation for its strategy of "incremental encroachment" on the Second Amendment to achieve its ultimate goal of gun confiscation, and the Feinstein-Schumer legislation preventing law-abiding citizens from owning semi-automatic rifles (so-called and decidedly misnamed "assault weapons") for lawful purposes, is no exception.

Such laws claim, ostensibly, to protect law-abiding citizens. Of course, only law-abiding citizens comply with these restrictions -- and at their own peril. Criminals don't care if the weapons they are using comport with the 23,000 federal, state and local gun restrictions already on the books. Ms. Feinstein made clear her real objective after passage of Feinstein-Schumer in 1994: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate...for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in, I would have done it."

Reject renewal of the 1994 Clinton-Feinstein-Schumer Gun-Control Act!
