*** A Special Message From Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America ***

Dear Fellow American:

It happened in Nazi Germany about 60 years ago.

It happened in Australia in 1996.

It happened in England in 1997.

It has even happened in New York City, New York.

First, gun registration.  Then, gun confiscation.

In Congress, anti-gunners are still on the offensive toward their goal of a complete ban on private firearms ownership.

As you may know, Gun Owners of America is the no-compromise gun rights lobby organization supported by hundreds of thousands of pro-gun friends across America.

Our position on gun control is:  It's not Constitutional.   And to make sure politicians get the message, we work with grassroots pro-gun activists.

sroots pro-gun activists.

Gun Owners of America and our members have no problem saying to the legislators whoo want to sell out our rights "Don't tread on me and my gun rights."

In Washington, Gun Owners of America fights legislative battles to protect your gun rights.

However, sometimes the best defense is a good offense.

In fact, in over a half a dozen states -- in 1998 alone -- Gun Owners of America staff and members have been working with state legislatures to repeal laws that force gun owners to get a permission slip in order to carry a gun concealed.

This is Gun Owners of America's position:  NO GUN CONTROL ALLOWED.

Now it's time to take that aggressive offensive approach of reclaiming our gun rights to legislative battles in Washington D.C. and your state capital.

Will you join the effort?

Your action will apply pressure to legislators when they need it the most. Together with other gun rights supporters you and I can make the legislator "feel the heat" until they "see the

It is true that petitioning an elected official is a powerful legislative tool.

Elected officials fear angry voters.  That is why grass-roots action is so powerful.  It reminds elected officials that they are there to serve the people and will be held accountable by the people.
