Today I received, in the mail, a legislative alert from the NRA on the following proposal issued by Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and other anti-gun Senators.
They're pushing a proposal that would dramatically expand the current instant background check system by criminalizing private firearm transfers. They are using the misleading label of “universal background checks” to create confusion in order to pass this legislation quickly through the U.S. Senate.
Don’t be fooled. Any system that criminalizes private firearms transfers-- whether between a grandfather and granddaughter, father-in-law and son-in-law, or two law abiding gun owners who have known each other for years – is a direct infringement on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Further, criminals will never submit to such a system so it will have no effect on crime – and the only way to enforce “universal background checks” is to create a national registry of gun owners.
Please write AND call your State U.S. Senators and ask them to OPPOSE this gun control scheme in addition to any bill that would reinstate a failed ban on semi-automatic rifles or magazines.
