We need your help to pay for this ad. Anonymous donors have agreed to match your donations to this e-mail dollar for dollar. With Congress in session only 22 days before the Assault Weapons Ban expires, we need to step up our advertising campaign. Over 250,000 people have already signed our petition to renew the ban, but we need to spread the word.

President Ford, President Carter, President Reagan, and President Clinton all agreed that assault weapons should be banned. Over 75% of Americans do too. But President Bush is doing nothing to renew the Assault Weapons Ban. In this day and age, why would anyone want to see these lethal weapons back on the street?

Here's what will happen if the ban is allowed to expire:

  • Eighteen-year-olds will be able to walk into gun stores and buy new American-made AK-47s.
  • In many states, it will be possible to bring concealed TEC-9 assault pistols, loaded with thirty rounds of ammunition, into bars, churches and sports arenas, and even public schools or universities.
  • Kids as young as 13 will be able to buy brand new American-made AK-47s at gun shows and through classified ads.
  • New high capacity ammunition magazines that allow guns to fire up to 100 rounds without reloading will be mass-produced and sold on a cash-and-carry basis to anyone, with no questions or background checks.

Here's what you can do to help the campaign to renew the Assault Weapons Ban:

1. Contribute to our campaign.

2. Forward this e-mail to everyone you know.

We need your help to stop the NRA.

Thanks for your support.
