Senate Bill 2498

What is it, you ask? It's Diane Feinstein's latest attempt to grab guns away from law abiding citizens.

You might remember that she's tried this before. Feinstein, Kennedy, Kerry, Schumer, they all voted to re-up the Assault Weapons Ban. A ban, by the way, that has done exactly jack squat to prevent crime.

It's real simple, folks. If DiFi gets her hands on your guns, you can kiss them goodbye. Forever. Let your Senators know that you oppose it. You can find contact information for your Senators here.

One other thing you might want to do (just as a nice touch), is to write or email Senator Larry Craig of Idaho. Craig is a big reason why DiFi's little amendment died the last time she tried to pull this stunt. A note of appreciation for his leadership on this issue is deserved, in my opinion. I've already written him a letter, since my "Honorable" Senators will most likely just junk any mail or email I send them. I'm still going to flood their offices, however.

If you have time, send off a note letting your Congresscritters know about your position.

I just got an email back from Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington. It... isn't promising.

No, it's not. Both Cantwell and Murray are pretty much in DiFi's camp.

Sickening. I hope Nethercutt makes it a focal point of his campain.
