Letter making the rounds from The National Association for Gun Rights
Just moments ago, President Obama and his anti-gun pals unveiled their plans to GUT our Second Amendment rights.
The list of new schemes goes on seemingly forever, but the most outrageous are exactly what I’ve been fearing . . .
The gun-grabbers are going for broke, including:
*** RAMMING into law the new Feinstein Gun Ban, and banning magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Far more draconian than the earlier ban, the new Feinstein Gun Ban and the Magazine Ban demonizes guns for looking “scary” and targets rifles, shotguns and even handguns.
These new bans are NOT likely to include grandfather clauses, and they might even go for out-right confiscation.
*** FORCING through Congress a new national gun registration scheme under the guise of “background checks.”
There’s simply no way to enforce a ban on private transfers without government bureaucrats knowing exactly who owns what weapons.
*** A new “mental health” denial system using “ObamaCare’s” nationalized healthcare system to begin snooping on gun owners.
One Surgeon General estimated 46.4% of Americans will have mental health issues at some point in their lives!
So make no mistake, this is designed EXPLICITLY to allow the federal government to strip ANY law-abiding citizen they want -- including military veterans -- of their Second Amendment rights on a whim.
In fact, the so-called “mental health” and the “background check” national gun registration system may be where this fight is headed . . .
More than even an outright ban on certain types of firearms, nothing gets anti-gun activists like Sarah Brady more excited than the ability to demonize certain gun features and register and trace guns and gun owners.
That’s because she and her antigun pals -- like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- understand these are the first steps toward outright gun confiscation in America.
They’re putting up smoke and mirrors to throw American citizens off track.
But registration, bans and ultimately confiscation are really what President Obama’s “mental health” initiative and his so-called “background check” national gun registration schemes are all about.
So if you want to protect your gun rights, you and I are going to have to be ready for anything.
Please TAKE ACTION NOW and call your Congressman and Senators at 202-224-3121 and demand they oppose Obama’s gun control agenda at every opportunity.
These fights are going to move FAST, I’m afraid. Very fast.
Please consider chipping in $10 or $20 today to help NAGR mobilize millions of gun owners nationwide against Obama’s gun control agenda.
I’m committed to standing up and defeating these schemes. I’m counting on you to stand with me.

8. And this one from Santorum
President Obama just announced a litany of restrictive gun control proposals.
These policies are unconstitutional and an illegal use of his office, and we need to send him a message that his gun control recommendations will do nothing to stop gun violence.
All they do is violate our Constitutional rights.
That's why I am writing to you today to please make an urgent and generous donation of $35, $50, $100, $250 or whatever you can possibly afford to help me defeat this all-out assault on the Second Amendment.
While the president did propose some reasonable measures, I'm disappointed, yet not surprised, to see so much emphasis on gun control and not enough on key contributors to mass shootings - mental illness and the impact of the entertainment industry's glorification of violence.
As a strong supporter of the second amendment, I take issue with the Obama administration's effort to take more control of our lives on the gun issue, when we already have reasonable accommodations in place. We have seen time and time again, when law-abiding citizens have used their legal firearms as a means of self protection; our government cannot stand in the way of that.
President Obama is trying to ban the sale of many types of rifles, including those used for hunting, and he wants to limit your ability to defend yourself if a criminal invades your home and attacks your family.
Things are moving at lightning speed in Washington, so I need your urgent financial support to help with our massive grassroots effort to stop Obama from ramming through this gun control legislation.
This is the most serious attack on the 2nd Amendment in American history.
The American people have to rally NOW. What President Obama and the liberals are trying to do is unconstitutional and wrong.
The President is trying take away your right to hunt and defend yourself. This has nothing to do with protecting kids or reducing gun violence.
That's why Patriot Voices is making defeating these unconstitutional gun control proposals our very top priority.
Pro-Second Amendment groups like the NRA can't win this fight alone. My goal is to use Patriot Voices' unique grassroots network of ordinary Americans to help them flood Congress with calls, postcards, and emails.
We need to put so much heat on the politicians in Congress that they won't even consider bringing these proposals up for a vote.
So, that's why I need your immediate financial help. This massive grassroots campaign will be expensive. Please make the very best donation you can to Patriot Voices today.
Thank you in advance for all your help.
God bless you, and may God bless America!
Go ahead, bleed the RWers! Like Congress needs any more incentive to fight Obama every step of the way, geez.
