Support National Right to Carry


From NRA_ILA:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


U.S. Senate To Vote On National Right-To-Carry
Reciprocity Amendment Early This Week



Contact Your U.S. Senators TODAY And Urge Them To Support Your Right To Self-Defense by voting YES on the Thune-Vitter Amendment!



July 21, 2009

The U.S. Senate is now considering the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1390). As a part of the consideration of that legislation, Senators John Thune (R-SD) and David Vitter (R-LA) will offer an amendment this week to provide for interstate recognition of Right-to-Carry permits. There is a very high likelihood of a Senate floor vote on this important and timely pro-gun reform between now and Wednesday.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Please write your senators and ask them to support this ammendment! While your at it, ask your representative and Obama to support the right to self defense nationally as well. Don't sit idle. They need to hear from us whether we think it will make a bit of difference or not. We cerntainly won't make a difference if we do nothing.

Goto: NRA-ILA :: Action Center and it's fairly self-explanatory from there. This is NRA's ILA site. If you observe closely in this very quick process, you'll see that you will be able to send your representative, Obama, and your senators the same email simultaneously. Doesn't get any easier than that. Take a few minutes please and support the cause for self-defense no matter what state you're in.

Thank you and take care,

Jon

58 for it, 39 against. Almost... Apparently the senate had agreed beforehand that 60 votes for it would pass it.

Two Republicans voted against it and quite a few Dems voted for it. In one state, Ohio, I think, the Dem voted for it and the Repub voted against it!

Of course, the two liberal female senators from my state both voted against it. Wonderful that my senators are support their gender's right to self defense with a firearm...

It's almost like they knew before the vote how many would vote which way.
