Stand by with Tar and Feathers

Because if this goes through, we need to teach some congresscritters a lesson.

A Republican-led bill to immunize gun makers from wrongful-death claims is expected to hit the floor tomorrow, but Democrats and liberal Republicans will propose an amendment to extend the federal assault-weapons ban, possibly setting up a showdown with the House.

I want to know who the liberal "Republicans" are. I want their hides tanning on my wall, and their treacherous heads sitting on stakes in my front yard! Let's make it perfectly clear to all the gun-grabbing communists that WE. HAVE. HAD. ENOUGH! The very fact that these snot-nosed slimeballs are even THINKING about continuing the abridgement of all of our 2nd Amendment rights tells me that they do not fear the citizens of this country enough! It's time to put proper fear into their black, shriveled power-hungry hearts! I'd happily string up every gun-grabbing Donk and the worthless RINOs who play along with them if I had half a chance! I think the sight of those worthless parasites swinging from the lamp posts in Washington DC would send a very convincing message, don't you?!

Just remember, the first step in taking absolute control is ensuring that the citizens cannot fight back. That is what these corrupt shitheels are working towards. It's time to remind them just who is in control of this country.

Here's a hint. IT. IS. NOT. THEM!

What To Do About It:

You wrote your letter? Good! Write them again. Even if your rep is a schmuck. Let them know that they aren't appreciated.

On an average day, there's about 250 or so folks who wander through here. I want each and every one of you up and at 'em on this, no excuses.

From AWBansunset.com:
--------------------
S.659, the bill that will help eliminate frivolous lawsuits against the firearms industry, will be taken up in the Senate this week, possibly as soon as tomorrow. It is widely reported that Sen. Feinstein will attempt to amend the bill with a renewal of the 1994 "Assault Weapons" Ban.

The anti-gun lobby is staging a "phone-in" tomorrow (Tuesday, February 24th) in opposition to S.659. Though the bill already has enough co-sponsors (54) to ensure passage, a filibuster could still be attempted, which is presumably what the anti-gun side is hoping for.

To ensure our elected officials know they will lose more votes than they gain by supporting a renewal of the AWB, we all need to do our part by calling our Senators and voicing our strong opposition to the Feinstein AWB renewal amendment that will be offered for S.659... not only should this ban not be renewed, it should not be allowed to cloud the issue of whether S.659, an unrelated bill, should be passed.

The anti-gun folks are asking their people to call between the following hours:

9:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Central Standard Time
7:00 AM - 11:00 AM Mountain Standard Time
6:00 AM - 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time

Call 202-224-3121 and ask for one of your Senators' offices (you'll have to call back to reach the other one).

Even if you've already called your Senators in the past few weeks, CALL AGAIN tomorrow. Be polite,
but firm in your opposition to Feinstein's AWB renewal amendment. Please spread the word to everyone
you know.

Thank you, everyone, for taking an active role in ensuring this useless ban does indeed sunset this
September.


Granted, every Rep from my district is a gun-grabbing Hoplophobe, but I'm still going to try. Maybe I'll contact Nethercutt and tell him that should this damn abomination pass, I'll vote nothing but Libertarian until it's finally gone. Although hanging the fucking cunts in charge of this piece of shit still sounds like a much better idea. Christ, I'm so pissed I'm seeing red!
