What do you think of this folks?

Victory! U.S. Congress Strengthens Brady Background Check System
Bill Now Moves to President's Desk: Please Call Today
Dear Lee,


Great news! Last night, Congress passed a bill that will strengthen the Brady background check system. It will help ensure that fewer guns end up in the hands of dangerous people like felons and those who have been found to be a threat to themselves or others because of mental illness.

After the Virginia Tech tragedy, with your help, we asked our national leaders, "What are YOU going to do about gun violence?"

The tide is turning. Yesterday, Congress passed the first major piece of legislation to reduce gun violence in over a decade — and congratulations are in order: you, our donors and activists, helped make this victory possible. Thank you!

The "National Instant Check System (NICS) Improvement Amendments Act of 2007" (H.R. 2640) was passed by unanimous consent in the U.S. Senate and House, and now goes to the President's desk for signature.

PLEASE CALL PRESIDENT BUSH TODAY AT 202-456-1111
Urge Him to Sign the NICS Improvement Act Immediately
Give the Virginia Tech families this victory before the New Year



This legislation was passed in response to the Virginia Tech massacre. The killer was able to arm himself because the court order that should have blocked his gun purchase was not reported to the national Brady background check system.

We deeply appreciate the courage and strength of the Virginia Tech victims. On October 16, many of the Virginia Tech families joined Brady President Paul Helmke and me on Capitol Hill calling for passage of this legislation — the efforts of all the families involved were crucial to this victory.

Our special thanks go out to Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) and Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Edward Kennedy (D-MA) for their work on this legislation.

Much work lies ahead with the implementation of this legislation and our efforts to make the Brady background check system as strong as it can and should be. I know I can count on you to help us make future victories possible.

Thank you again and happy holidays.

Interesting! 22 people read this and nobody commented. I was sure folks would take the opportunity to give Brady the finger. :eek: :eek: :(

That's pretty much it, Sig -- I was one who read it, then I checked through my smiley and avatar library and failed to find a "Boid" big and stinky enough to be worthy. So I moved on...

Sig,
A lot of us are plumb numb with the mindset that prevails in our society.
I'm filing for my FFL but talking with my lawyer to separate what's mine (collection) and what's "inventory" that I can not show the Feds when they come calling. Like a lot of us I have pre ban stuff that's in my official collection. It's a slippery slope we slide on.
Hope you have a Merry Christmas and keep the faith.
Chris

I don't have an FFL but one thing I think I would do is keep a copy of all my inventory in a safe deposit box or with a friend or relative. I have heard the stories about BATF coming in and taking compurters and all the records and then you have no proof to present in a court hearing.

Even duplicate copies of purchase documents for all owned firearms that are not a part of the business inventory.

Good Luck with the FFL Chris.

Unfortunately numb doesn't begin to cover it, I think disgust would come closer. I have thought about getting my FFL license but understand you have to be actually in business and have a location where you deal from. Yes it is a slippery slope we are sliding on, anything the Brady people like should be looked at with a jaundiced eye and a veto encouraged.
