WHITE HOUSE CONTINUES ATTACK ON SENSIBLE GUN LAWS:
NOMINATES "MACHINE GUN SAMMY" TO THE SUPREME COURT


Dear StoptheNRA Member,


A Supreme Court nominee who would strike down the federal ban on machine guns?!

Take Action Box


We need you to:


1. Email your Senators. One click to tell them to oppose Judge Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court.


2. Donate $30 to our campaign to stop the Alito nomination. Now is the time to stand up and keep this extremist off the Supreme Court.


3. Send this email to family and friends.
 


I guess we shouldn't have been surprised from this White House. The same White House that just last week gave special legal protection to the gun industry, that refuses to bar terrorists from buying guns, and that broke a campaign promise and put Uzis and AK-47s back on America's city streets.


And in the midst of all of their other problems, they nominate "Machine Gun Sammy" to the highest bench in the land!


In 1996, when the Third Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the authority of Congress to ban fully automatic machine guns, Judge Samuel Alito dissented. Yes, he voted to loosen the restrictions on machine guns.


Judge Alito's ludicrous machine gun decision is bad enough. But it also indicates that if he were on the Supreme Court, he would attempt to deprive Congress of the power to pass other laws to protect Americans from gun violence.


Judge Alito's decision reeks of right wing judicial activism — a willingness to concoct bizarre readings of the Constitution in order to strike down reasonable laws with which he disagrees and to neuter the ability of the people's representatives to enact sensible gun legislation.


We face this kind of radical judicial activism because reasonableness has taken a flying leap in Washington. Why? Because the White House has once again caved in to special interests, like the NRA, and other radical wings of the party — and continues to lead the country down a path that is less secure and less civil.


WHAT YOU CAN DO:


1. Send an email to your Senators. One click will tell them that you, a constituent and supporter of sensible gun laws, want them to take a stand and oppose Judge Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court.

2. Donate $30 to our campaign to stop the Alito nomination. Now is the time to stand up and keep this extremist off the Supreme Court. Your gift will be put to good work immediately to get our country back on the right track.

3. Send this email to family and friends. Every email, every dollar, makes a difference.
We don't need machine guns in our society — and we don't need Alito on the highest bench in the land. Stand with us today!


Sincerely,
Your Friends at StoptheNRA.com
