The Bush administration has continued veering toward gun control.
You know it is bad when The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
salutes the administration’s support for gun control.

Why would anti-gunners praise the Bush administration? For one,
signing the first gun control legislation in over a decade, the
Veterans Disarmament Act (H.R. 2640). For another, the very anti-gun
brief the Solicitor General (the Justice Department’s lawyer) filed
in the DC gun ban case, D.C. v. Heller.

As you know, Rep. Virgil Goode is rounding up other members of the
U.S. House of Representatives to join with him on his letter to the
President asking him to withdraw that brief.

Gun Owners of America has taken the lead in building public awareness
of the Solicitor General’s action, and the need to urge all members
of Congress to support Rep. Goode’s efforts.

We know it is imperative for the NRA to encourage their members to
weigh in with their representatives on behalf of Rep. Goode.

It would be very helpful if you — and as many gun owners as you can
recruit to help — would call the NRA and urge them to publicly
encourage members of Congress to join with Rep. Goode by signing his
letter to the White House.

The toll-free number to call at the NRA is 800-392-8683. To maximize
your effort, please call rather than e-mail.

For your information, the GOA press release that explains what is
wrong with the administration’s brief is here:

The D.C. v. Heller case is by far the most important Second Amendment
court case of our lifetime. Thank you for doing all you can to help
secure a pro-gun outcome.

    Last week, the Bush administration put troubling distance between itself and principled Second Amendment defenders. We refer to the amicus brief that Solicitor General Paul Clement filed Friday in support of the plaintiffs in District of Columbia v. Heller — the D.C. gun-ban challenge, widely expected to be the court’s most significant gun-rights case in 60 years when a decision is reached. ~snip~
