NEW ACTION! Can politicians learn something from criminals?

What can criminals teach politicians about gun regulations? #gunrights Retweet

We’re launching a new campaign to repeal federal gun regulations. Why? Because…

The sample letter below contains info about a new study proving something 2nd Amendment advocates have long claimed…

Criminals don’t obey gun regulations!

The hardwired letter to Congress for this new campaign reads…

Repeal federal gun regulations.

You can send your own message about this issue by copying or editing the following sample letter to Congress…

Federal gun regulations are unconstitutional, immoral, and counterproductive (as shown by yet another study). The unconstitutional part is easy to prove…

First, the Supreme Court says the Second Amendment protects individual gun ownership (the Heller decision).

Second, the Tenth Amendment gives you no enumerated power to regulate gun ownership.

Third, the Ninth Amendment protects our right to make our own choices, provided we don’t aggress against others.

Which brings us to morality. It’s morally wrong to threaten innocent people. But that’s precisely what gun regulations do. They control INNOCENT people — people who have aggressed against no one.

Finally, gun regulations are counterproductive because they disarm innocent people while having little impact on criminals. This is common sense. But it’s been confirmed by the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab.

The Crime Lab did something obvious. They investigated where criminals get their guns. They found few examples of criminals obtaining guns through REGULATED means.

In other words, your gun regulations affect law abiding citizens, NOT criminals. The claimed justification for such regulations is thereby obliterated.

I want to hear that you’ve introduced or co-sponsored legislation to repeal federal gun regulations.
