Dear Sir:

Sen. Charles Schumer has continued his war against the Constitution by trying to recruit Wal-Mart Stores. I refer to his letter urging you not to sell a legal item (after September 13) desired by thousands of Americans.

Schumer wants to deny Americans ownership of guns that are identical to firearms you already carry -- they just look different.

These guns are not what the fervid imagination of Sen. Schumer would have us believe. These guns are not used by one single military in the world. As the New York State Police found in 1994, the year of the ban, hands and feet were used to commit five times more murders than were the guns the Senator wants to keep banned. I hope the Senator never realizes this fact, or our hands and feet are in danger of a new Senatorial ban.

I would like to be able to inform gun owners what the policy of Wal-Mart Stores will be. I hope you will ignore this outrageous pressure from Sen. Schumer.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Larry Pratt
Executive Director

I look forward to hearing from you.
