Anti-gun Zealots Trying To Ram Disarmament Bill Through Senate
— Immediate action required
You’d think that when rabid, anti-gun legislators like Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy join together to pass anti-gun legislation, it would raise a few red flags.
But these two New York Democrats are currently planning to roll over gun owners with H.R. 2640 — legislation which would bar you from owning guns if:
* You are a battle-scarred veteran suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; or
* As a kid, you were diagnosed with ADHD.
Not to mention the fact that your ailing grandfather could have his entire gun collection seized, based only on a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s (and there goes the family inheritance).
Gun owners have been desperately fighting this bill for several months. You will remember that it passed in the House with an unrecorded voice vote in June and was later passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee — also without a recorded vote.
Sen. Schumer is pushing hard to pass this legislation — dubbed the Veterans Disarmament Act — so he is circulating an “agreement” which would waive the Senate rules in order to bring up and pass the bill.
This agreement could come about in the next few hours or the next couple of days!
This agreement is extremely diabolical, as it would eliminate the ability of pro-gun senators to offer amendments which would clean up the legislation… and would grease the skids for immediate passage!
But there is good news: In order for Schumer’s “agreement” to prevail, he must get “unanimous consent.” This means that just ONE single senator can block it.
ACTION: Please contact your two U.S. Senators RIGHT AWAY and urge them to OBJECT to Senator Chuck Schumer’s “unanimous consent agreement” to steamroll H.R. 2640, the McCarthy anti-gun bill.

—– Pre-written letter —–
Currently, anti-gun zealot Chuck Schumer is trying to get “unanimous consent” to steamroll the Senate in connection with Carolyn McCarthy’s anti-gun bill, H.R. 2640.
If this bill is passed, an American would be barred from owning guns if:
* He is a U.S. veteran suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; or
* As a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD in connection with the IDEA program.
Not to mention the fact that an ailing grandfather could have his entire gun collection seized, based only on a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s from a Medicare home health provider (and there goes the family inheritance).
Gun owners don’t support this legislation, better known as the Veterans Disarmament Act. The Military Order of the Purple Heart is opposed to it, having stated on June 18 of this year, that “For the first time the legislation, if enacted, would statutorily impose a lifetime gun ban on battle-scarred veterans.”
Please place a hold on the McCarthy bill and object to any unanimous consent agreement to discharge the bill.
