This could prove to be as important as your activism earlier this year. This bill already passed the House and Chuck Schumer is standing by to try and subvert it by tacking on AWB, magban, background checks (registration), and anything else they failed on earlier this year.

From GOA:

Click here to contact your Senators Ask them to oppose any effort by Senator Chuck Schumer to add gun control to the H.R. 3626, the plastic gun ban reauthorization which passed in the House.


Chuck Schumer held a press conference the same day [the House reauthorized the 1988 undetectable gun ban] to indicate that he will use the House-passed bill as a vehicle to pass even more gun control. We don't expect to know Schumer's bill number or language before he actually offers it, but it will purport to deal with guns from 3-D printers, while actually being much broader.

So here's what we are doing: We are asking our friends in the Senate to put a “hold” on any effort by Schumer to amend the House bill.

The Senate will only be in session four or five days next week before the House goes out for the year, and Schumer may not be able to get time on the Senate floor without “unanimous consent” from all senators.

So, by doing this, we would force Schumer to give up on his vehicle for banning printer-guns if he wanted any reauthorization of the 1988 bill. If Schumer remains adamant, there will be no reauthorization at all. Even if he capitulates, we'll see what happens.

It's not a perfect outcome. But we think it's an outcome we can probably achieve.

Make sure your voice is heard Monday morning (and every day next week if no vote is passed), next week is a year since Newtown, the antis will relentlessly shame your congresspeople into passing more gun-control if they can.

10 more years against plastic guns. Our government is in trouble, we are in trouble. GWB is flying with Obumma today to South Africa.

Well, they do have a lot in common and even political "adversaries" cling together for a photo op. Probably drinking and joking on the whole trip about how people really think they are different, Hillary too, (NY Times cockily refer to her as "the woman who might be his [Obama's] successor"] is on that trip.

As for the ban, at least it passed without any kind of attempt at adding more idiocy to it. Of course it won't keep criminals from printing guns if they so wish.

Look out, a newly emboldened Schumer (and Grassley) have stated that gun-control is coming in the wake of this re-authorization, keep an eye out for it.
