This Bill, SB 436 MUST be stopped
November 29, 2011

Washington, DC 20510
Let us be very clear on SB 436. IF YOU SUPPORT THIS BILL YOU WILL NEVER AGAIN HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE. Let us repeat this: ‘If you support this bill you will NEVER again hold public office.
We will put time, effort and money into making your defeat possible. THERE IS NO COMPROMISE!!
In the latest attempt to gut the Second Amendment and separate Americans from their guns, the Senate Judiciary Committee this week began hearings on Rep. Chuck Schumer's S.B. 436 – the so-called "Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011." Rep. Chuck Schumer and his Second Amendment-hating cohorts are billing the legislation as a means to fix the much ballyhooed and completely fallacious "gun show loophole" of federal gun control we have been hearing about for years. But what this bill actually aims at, and does, is end ALL private gun sales and transfers – not just at gun shows but everywhere in America. STOP S.B. 436
–First, the bill requires all gun buyers to get a "permit." Next, the buyer must undergo a federal background check and seek the FBI's permission to purchase the gun. This also applies to ANY firearm transfer, so in essence a gun can no longer be gifted or inherited without government approval. In fact, according to section 202 (g) 6, one will not even be allowed to use a friend's gun for hunting unless one first applies for a permit.
LEAVE OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS ALONE! – STOP S.B. 436
Just as outrageous is Section 124 of the bill, which requires any institution of higher learning to perform "mental health assessments" and develop treatment plans for ALL students, the results of which would be submitted to a federal database. With this bill, Chuck Schumer has managed to decimate the Second and the Fourth Amendments in one fell swoop. Such outlandish gun control measures are designed to progressively limit citizen access to the very means given us to protect our freedom.
SENATE BILL 436 MUST BE STOPPED.
