Please join the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and our own Hoffmang (Gene Hoffman) as they rally against Mayor Bloomberg's latest scheme to infringe on our rights to keep and bear arms.
Most of you are familiar with Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns
. In the tradition of past harebrained schemes such like restricting the painting of firearms
and denying fundamental Constitutional Rights without due process
. Hizzoner's latest ploy to strip guns from law abiding Americans is called, "Fix Gun Checks
Now, the rubes at MAIG seek to:
- Require background checks for ALL firearms transfers.
- Allow people to be designated as "mentally ill" without proper adjudication.
- Allow people to be designated as "illegal drug users" without proper adjudication.
- Allow people to be put on a "prohibited list" without proper adjudication.
Let them go pound sand.
In the meantime - let's voice our displeasure and at the same time educate folks and the media that contrary to hysterical proclamations, that GUNS SAVE LIVES!
CCRKBA has a truck (pictured below) which is being used as the centerpiece to an education campaign. And the campaign is coming to Los Angeles.
Gene Hoffman is going to speak to the press - and we'd like to have some folks there to show support, create a little buzz and make for a nice media picture.
If we're going to change the minds of people and the media, we have to demonstrate that gun owners are ordinary folks. We have to put faces to the concepts of "gun owner".
Please join us at this event. More details to follow.
