    Dear Concerned American,

    The great pay-back has begun, and it's going to be ugly.

    Liberals in Congress are paying back the anti-gun extremists who put them in office, and Barack Obama's H.R. 45 is the first step...

    ...and it's a big step.

    My name is Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Association for Gun Rights. I'm writing you today to warn you of the very real threat this gun control bill poses to your liberties.

    The National Association for Gun Rights has a petition ready for you to sign, but I want you to understand just how dangerous this bill is before I give you the link. Please bear with me for a moment.

    You see, H.R. 45 would establish a national gun registry database which would:

    Increase requirements for firearms purchases, far beyond those ever proposed.

    Create a national firearms registry overseen by the Federal Government.

    Invoke Draconian penalties for bookkeeping errors related to the Federal Firearms Database.
    It gets worse though.

    Sarah Brady and her allies in Congress want to force you to take a written exam to prove that you are "fit" to exercise your Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.

    I'm outraged by this, and I know you are too.

    I'm sure I don't have to tell you that gun registration is the first step on the road toward totalitarian confiscation of all firearms by a federal power.

    In fact, the most brutal dictators of the last century were famous for their gun registration and confiscation schemes.
    It was easy work for Hitler's brown-shirt Gestapo to confiscate the firearms of German citizens because years earlier, well-meaning liberals had forced all guns to be registered with the government ... all in the name of safety.

    When Hitler came to take their guns, he had a list of who owned every gun and where they lived!

    But H.R. 45, Obama's National Gun Registry and Citizen Disarmament Act, is more than just a forced registration of all firearms in America.

    The bill also makes it increasingly difficult to buy a gun in the first place.

    Taken right out of Sarah Brady's Christmas wish list, H.R. 45 includes a laundry list of new restrictions on firearms purchases.

    In addition to the outrageous national gun registration requirement, the bill also requires you to:

    Pass a written examination to purchase a firearm.

    Release your medical records -- including confidential mental health records -- to the government to get your "fitness" to own a firearm approved.

    Observe a two-day waiting period before all firearms purchases.

    Pay a gun tax of $25 or more on all firearm purchases.
    Moreover, H.R. 45 bans all private firearms sales and maximizes penalties for minor clerical errors in dealing with the national gun registry.

    The list goes on and on. It's enough to turn your stomach.
    I know I don't have to tell you, but these restrictions make a mockery of the Constitution. "The Right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" might as well say: "You have no rights."

    If a two-day waiting period, a written exam and a gun tax aren't infringing our rights, I don't know what is!

    The National Association for Gun Rights is fully committed to stopping H.R. 45, but we need the help of grassroots conservatives like you.

    You and I must join together, draw a line in the sand, and fight this battle to the end.

    We must make this gun-grab expensive for the enemies of freedom. If we do, they'll flinch ... and lose.

    By mobilizing hundreds of thousands of grassroots gun owners across the country, the National Association for Gun Rights can put anti-gun politicians on the hot seat.

    Are you with me?

    Are you opposed to national gun registration? Are you opposed to a written examination to buy a gun? Are you opposed to a new $25 gun tax? Are you opposed to a total ban on private firearm sales?

    If you said, "yes" to any of those questions, I need you to click here to fill out NAGR's HR45 petition and join us in this fight.

    Stopping un-Constitutional gun control bills like H.R. 45 may be NAGR's top priority, but we can't do it alone.

    Along with your signed petition, please send the National Association for Gun Rights a generous contribution if you can. You will have the opportunity to donate right after you sign the petition.

    The fact is H.R. 45 is just the first step.

    Sarah Brady and her cohorts in Congress now have the support of a willing White House and won't stop until they've reached their ultimate goal: a national ban on the individual ownership of all firearms.

    That is why I simply must hear from you immediately.

    Please take a moment to sign our H.R. 45 petition -- even if you've already signed it -- and, if at all possible, make a contribution of $200, $150, $100 or maybe just $25 to help the National Association for Gun Rights fight H.R. 45 and Sarah Brady's gun control wish list.

    I know this is a lot to ask, but inaction could very well lead to defeat and the loss of our right to keep and bear arms.

    Whether you can afford the full $200 or a lesser amount of $50, please contribute what you can.

    Thank you in advance for contributing your time and money towards defeating H.R. 45, Obama's National Gun Registry and Citizen Disarmament Act.

    For Freedom and Liberty,

    Dudley Brown
    Executive Director
    National Association for Gun Rights

    P.S. H.R. 45 is the most sweeping gun control proposal ever offered in America, and under this administration, it might just pass -- unless you act today.

    Please join with the National Association for Gun Right in opposing this gun-grab by signing our petition and making a generous contribution of $200, $150, $100 or just $25 -- immediately.

    I will admit that I have not checked out this organization but having spent 3 years of my professional life working on the Hill, I can tell you that what affects a Congressman more than anything is being able to hear from his/her constituents. Call your Congressman, especially when you know they are in their District offices; call that office, get to know the staffers. And when in DC take the time to stop by, coordinate this with the staffers, they love to hear from you. While these organizations can tell your Congressman how many people they have behind you, it means more when they know how you feel as their voter. Think of it this way, a group comes in saying they hate hunting, but your Congressman can use your personal story to fend them off.
