Second Amendment Foundation
The gun haters are making their biggest anti-gun legislative push ever. In all the years I've devoted to fighting the gun grabbers, I've never seen such an enormous campaign.
In fact, as you read this email, gun control groups like the Brady Campaign, the Violence Policy Center and Mayors Against Illegal Guns are joining forces to snuff out your gun rights.
Unless you and I act today, the anti-gun extremists could get away with undermining the Second Amendment.
That's why I need your help. I selected you to be on a special jury to help decide the fate of more than 80 million gun owners in America.
SELECT HERE to receive your electronic JUROR's BALLOT, imprinted with your name for your personal use in officially rendering your verdict. The JUROR BALLOT you fill out will be collected along with others and presented to the Supreme Court at the next gun rights case.
Make your voice heard at the Supreme Court!
Restoring the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms is what's at stake for these 80 million Americans...
Please Weigh Your Verdict Carefully, Asking Yourself These Key Questions:
- Should law abiding American's have the right to keep a gun in their home for self-protection even if it is a semi-automatic?
- Is it an infringement or a prior restraint on the right to keep and bear arms for individuals in America with no criminal record to be forced to wait 7, 14 or 30 days to buy a gun to defend themselves against a criminal attack?
- Should judges enforce the Bill of Rights and the Constitution as originally intended by those who drafted, proposed and ratified its provisions rather than inject their personal bias?
I say YES! The gun grabbers of the Brady Gun Ban Center, Mayor Bloomberg's Gun Ban Coalition and President Barack Obama and his anti-gun friends say NO! What is your verdict?
Please select here to fill out your JUROR's BALLOT. It will only take a few minutes to check off your decisions.
Acting as jury foreman, I plan to announce your verdict to all nine members of the Supreme Court. It is critical that our Supreme Court Judges hear your verdict before they decide the next gun rights case that is headed to the United States Supreme Court.
You see all nine members of the high court still feel the heat to speak from the "Court of Public Opinion."
Your JUROR's BALLOT can help protect and restore the Second Amendment rights of millions of gun owners across the country.
I hope you use your JUROR's BALLOT to send a loud message that all judges should enforce the law, and especially our beloved Constitution and Bill of Rights as originally intended by the founders of this great nation.
But that's not what the Brady Gun Ban Center or power hungry politicians like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Dianne Feinstein, John Kerry, and Mayor Bloomberg want you to do.
In fact, the gun grabbers have launched a massive campaign to stamp out the Supreme Court's favorable Second Amendment ruling once and for all. And, because the outcome of this battle will determine if there is a future for our right to keep and bear arms, it is imperative that we do all in our power to fight back.
With each passing day the gun-ban movement grows and is mobilizing its forces.
Right now, the Brady Gun Ban Center has thousands of letters pouring into Congress and State Legislatures pressuring all your elected representatives to vote for new harsh federal and state anti-gun legislation.
And they're also working on heaps of anti-gun legislation. Here are some of the gun control measures they're pushing...
- Bans on high-capacity magazines
- A federal gun owner list
- Bans on semi-automatic guns
- Kill conceal carry laws
As you can see, this is not a fight we cannot afford to lose.
At the same time, their anti-gun allies in the press are turning out thousands of anti-gun stories and editorials, just like the five I'm reading in USA Today, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and The New York Times.
Your JUROR's BALLOT Will Challenge Anti-Gun Politicians
In The Supreme Court
In addition, President Barack Obama has his supporters from Frank Lautenberg on the East Coast to Dianne Feinstein on the West Coast pushing his anti-gun rights agenda.
And when they get bad anti-gun laws passed like they have in states like California and New Jersey or cities like Chicago and New York ... we must see that they get challenged in court. Even if it is the court of last resort ... the United
States Supreme Court!
We MUST stop the gun-grabbers dead in their tracks. If we don't act now, tomorrow may be too late.
That's why you must fill out your JUROR's BALLOT as soon as possible. You see, the Brady Gun Ban Center has filed legal briefs in a number of court cases that affect your gun rights. Briefs that claim there is no individual right to keep and bear arms. And that's why the work of the Second Amendment Foundation is so important.
It was the Second Amendment Foundation that helped overturn a San Francisco law banning the ownership of handguns that went all the way to the California State Supreme Court.
And it was a lawsuit paid for by the Second Amendment Foundation that saw the highest court in the state of Connecticut kill a law banning the sale of handguns in the city of New Haven.
We have also won major victories in New Orleans, Los Angeles and Ohio, as well as, in the United States Supreme Court. Right now, The Second Amendment Foundation is funding legal challenges to anti-gun laws, gun bans and confiscations in Washington, D.C., Chicago and Boston.
And at any time the United States Supreme Court could decide to hear another appeal of an important gun rights case. We must be prepared! An appeal, that if the Brady Gun Ban Center and President Barack Obama and his friends have their way, will stamp out the Second Amendment and your gun rights once and for all!
Stop The Gun Grabbers From Dismantling The Constitution
The gun grabbers think that they can manipulate the Supreme Court Judges the same way they do Congressmen and the media. And with Mayor Bloomberg's personal fortune of billions of dollars, they may just be right. And the truth is that without your help for the Second Amendment Foundation's important work, they probably can.
That's why I need you to fill out your JUROR's BALLOT and at the same time, enclose a tax-deductible contribution to help the Second Amendment Foundation fight back. Your financial help is really needed at this time.
Frankly, as a non-profit legal defense and educational foundation, we can't win against politically powerful anti-gunners alone. We need your help. Will you please include a tax-deductible contribution with your JUROR's BALLOT today?
Please remember that unlike the Gun Grabbers who receive over a billion dollars per year in "free advertising" from the anti-gun media like CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, Time Magazine, New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, etc....
...the Second Amendment Foundation depends on the voluntary support of good and patriotic citizens like you who believe in the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
I hope you won't put this letter aside thinking your JUROR's BALLOT or contribution won't matter.
Whatever you can afford to send, every penny counts.
With your immediate help today, the Second Amendment Foundation can strike a big blow for individual freedom and gun rights against those who want to shred our Bill of Rights. In fact, funds are desperately needed at this time to pay for legal work in two important cases.
And funds are urgently needed to run ads on radio and in print media. In addition, we need to raise several thousand dollars to print and distribute new books and pamphlets to law libraries, law schools, and hundreds of key federal and state judges. I can't commit to expend the money for these much needed pro-gun rights activities unless you help today.
Please send a contribution of $20, $25, $50, $100 or more if possible. Much is at stake.
The fate of more than 80 million gun owners is now in your hands.
Remember, protecting our freedom is not inexpensive.
But then, it's impossible to put a price tag on freedom.
Together, we can preserve the Constitutional rights our Founding Fathers intended our people to have forever.
