GRNC Alert 12-8-13: Schumer Exploits 'Plastic Gun' Myth to Ban Ordinary Guns--House Republicans hand Schumer chance to ban thousands of ordinary guns.

What is an “undetectable gun”? It isn't what gun control-pushing politicians like New York senator Chuck Schumer want you to believe it is. 


In fact, airports now use “passive body scanners” that detect firearms regardless of what they're made of. And ammunition, made of lead and brass, has never been “invisible”. Apparently Chuck Schumer thinks a gun without ammunition is somehow a threat to national security.

The real threat to national security are politicians who rabidly attack constitutional freedom. Our Republican “friends” in the US House have done us no favor by passing a bill to extend the outdated and useless “undetectable gun” ban.

Now Schumer and his anti-gun majority of Democrats in the US Senate can use it as a vehicle to tack on provisions that ban guns made with any non-metallic parts – even wooden stocks!
Their strategy appears to delay the current ban until after the 2014 election, when Democrats will be more willing to risk their careers voting in favor of gun bans Americans don't want.
The current ban, set to sunset after 10 years on December 9th needs to sunset. If only Chuck Schumer's tenure would sunset with it...

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!                                          
·     Email AND Call NC Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr. Tell them the useless “undetectable gun” ban must be allowed to sunset.
·     Call the two Senate leaders: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Tell them the pointless ban must sunset.

LIVER THIS MESSAGE                                                     
Dear Senator,
As you are aware the “undetectable gun” ban will sunset December 9th if not extended.
Senator Chuck Schumer's proposed one year extension of this ban is a clear attempt to shield anti-gun senators from an unpopular vote during an election year, and to create a vehicle for more draconian gun control legislation in the future.

I insist that you DO NOT SUPPORT the Schumer one year extension.
Given the facts that even “plastic guns” are now easily detected via passive body scanning, and ammunition has always been detectable, this ban is a solution in search of a problem.
It must be allowed to sunset.

Cooperation with Schumer's scheme will cost you my vote.
I will follow progress on this issue through Grass Roots North Carolina alerts.
