National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban Formed‏

For Immediate Release:

Florida Carry and over 25 other State and National organizations form "National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban"

When the 1994 “Assualt Weapons” Ban was proposed many gun owners thought that the bill had no chance of passing. They were shocked that the bill actually became law. Sen. Feinstein is at it again with a legislative proposal that will be published as early as today. Her new ban is even more restrictive than the 1994 ban.

We are beginning to see supposedly pro-gun Republicans and Democrats waiver on the issue. There is an excellent chance that the new ban will pass the Senate leaving us with one chance to stop it in the House. We hope you agree that absolutely no “compromise” on our fundamental right to keep and bear arms is possible. This bill can’t be amended in to something acceptable, it must be stopped outright.

Florida Carry, in conjunction with other State and National groups, has formed a national coalition to defeat the Obama/Biden/Feinstein gun and magazine ban proposal.

Over 25 state and federal organizations have so far joined the “National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban,” including all of the groups listed below;

The objective of the coalition is to kill the proposals. Period. Not to “compromise” by saddling gun owners with restrictions and whining “It was the best we could get.” Nothing less than the complete defeat of the Obama/Biden/Feinstein proposals will suffice;

All coalition members have agreed that “compromise” is not an option; AND

Coalition members launched with a coordinated “Open Letter to Members of Congress”, coordinated press releases and membership alerts.

National Organizations:

The Firearms Coalition

Gun Owners of America

Rights Watch International

Second Amendment Sisters

State Organizations:

Arizona Citizens Defense League

Arkansas Carry

Florida Carry, Inc.

Grass Roots North Carolina

Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance of Minnesota

Gun Owners of California

Gun Owners of Maine

Gun Owners of Utah

Gun Owners of Vermont

Michigan Gun Owners

Montana Shooting Sports Association

New Hampshire Firearms Coalition

New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society

Nebraska Firearms Owners Association

Oregon Firearms Federation

Peaceable Texans for Firearms Rights

Utah Shooting Sports Council

Virginia Citizens Defense League

West Virginia Citizens Defense League

Western Missouri Shooters Alliance

Wisconsin Carry, Inc.

“The National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban will work to defeat all proposed federal gun control and to punish any congressional representative who supports it. We find absolutely nothing about Senator Feinstein’s proposal to be acceptable: Not banning guns, not registering guns and gun owners via the National Firearms Act, not registering private gun sales via the National Instant Check System, and most certainly not expanding BATFE police powers which are already being abused.

“'Compromise,' as our opposition defines it, is a process in which freedom-loving Americans lose slightly less than under the original proposal. Consequently, in the most egregious attack on Second Amendment freedom in our history, we will not 'compromise.'”

Do you have a link to the actual website, or to their writings?
