The attempt to renew and augment the expired federal "assault weapons ban", HR 1022, will not be tolerated.
This is NOT the cosmetic bill from the Clinton era and does NOT include a sunset expiration, this one DOES ban many more guns, not just features, going so far as to ban WWII era rifles such as the M1 Garand and semi-automatic shotguns. Do your homework, learn about the details and contact your representative, act locally, raise awareness.
This petition and it's author is in no way affiliated with the ACLU. I am an honorably discharged Marine, gun owner and rifle range member. The host website is by charter a non-partisan site, though they do carry many left leaning petitions. If that makes you uncomfortable, start some right leaning ones and get people on board.
I've been informed that an embedded questionaire is asking for personal information such as "number of children in household". These are not questions that I opted to be included and should not be required to sign the petition.
We the undersigned wish to express in no uncertain terms our outrage and disgust with the introduction of HR 1022: To reauthorize the assault weapons ban, and for other purposes. Let it be known, that we the undersigned swear an undying devotion to end the political careers of any public servant holding office who should dare to offer any support to this offense to our birthright to take up arms to defend our lives, our families, our property, our community and our country against enemies both foreign and domestic. We see it as absolutely essential that we retain our right, which is not granted to us by man nor able to be repealed, to maintain, keep, bear and train with firearms and ammunitions that are state of the art. HR 1022, or any bill resembling, is an affront to this right and our dignity as citizens of this fair nation and will not be tolerated. We are watching.
