From Conyers: House May Vote Wed To Release Gun Manuf. From ALL Liability
HOUSE WILL VOTE AS EARLY AS WEDNESDAY ON GUN LIABILITY EXEMPTION

TAKE ACTION AT <http://www.nocrony.com/gun_liability.htm >
CALL CONGRESS, TOLL FREE, AT 1-877-SOB-U-SOB

We got an urgent heads up direct from the John Conyers office and this is what they said:

The powerful gun lobby is aggressively seeking to pass legislation that will provide unprecedented blanket liability exemption for gun manufacturers and dealers. The gun lobby has pushed for a vote this week that will free them from all responsibility for deaths and injuries resulting from their products. The vote this week is the last chance to stop this reckless bill.

The House Leadership, receiving instructions from the gun lobby, has refused to consider the disastrous consequences of this legislation. Particularly outrageous is that, if this bill is passed, a dealer may no longer be held accountable for knowingly selling weapons to terrorist organizations or cop killers. This is disgraceful and demonstrates the lengths to which Republican House Leadership will go to keep the NRA and the gun lobby happy.

TAKE ACTION AT <http://www.nocrony.com/gun_liability.htm >
CALL CONGRESS, TOLL FREE, AT 1-877-SOB-U-SOB

It is time to put the priorities of our nation's safety ahead of those of the gun manufacturers. We need your support today! The vote will be Wednesday.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

1. Good thing it will never get signed into law
The House Repugs are going to try to pull all sorts of last minute shit. They know the end is coming soon.

3. First it also has to pass the Senate
and by the time that ever happens, BushCo won't be signing much of anything anymore, except for the receipts for their belongings, when they arrive at the jail.
