“The power under the constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can and undoubtedly will, be recalled.”

~ George Washington (1787)

Another gun control bill introduced in the US Senate

An executive summary of S. 374, "The Fix Gun Checks Act", as amended by Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY):
This bill has nothing to do with ensuring people who are getting guns are law-abiding, and everything to do with getting backdoor registration, and creating a patchwork of rules and laws that will land anyone who uses guns, and isn’t a lawyer, in federal prison for a long time. Lots of otherwise law-abiding people are going to federal prison if this ends up passing, and I’m convinced that’s the whole idea.
 Once again, our Constitutional rights are under attack.  Contact your Senate delegation by:
  • Going to their web sites, and using the "Contact" features to call or write.  
  • Use POPVOX to send a single message, and "vote" on the bill (requires registration)
