Defeat Harry Reid's attempt take our guns

From RandPAC:

Harry Reid tried to pull one of the oldest tricks in Washington.

Recently, a few red state Democrats facing tough re-elections co-sponsored a "Sportsmen's Bill."

But this so-called pro-gun bill was nothing of the sort.

It was merely a prop for Democrats in pro-gun states to wave around to promote their Second Amendment credentials.

So I proposed a number of amendments that would put some teeth into this empty vessel and transform it into true pro-gun legislation.

My amendments to lift gun control in the District of Columbia would have:



<< Repealed the registration requirement.




<< Ended the ban on semi-automatic rifles and so-called "high capacity magazines."




<< Extended the right to carry firearms outside residents' homes and ended the ban on carrying firearms on federal lands in D.C.




But rather than pass real pro-gun legislation, the Senate spiked this "Sportsmen's Bill."



The signal from this vote was broadcast loud and clear: no gun rights legislation in Harry Reid's Senate.



He's only interested in legislative smoke-and-mirrors to preserve the anti-gun majority he presides over.



If you and I are going to advance the cause of Second Amendment rights, we're going to have to change Senate leadership.



That's why I hope you'll sign your "No Gun Control" petition today.



Send a message to Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats running scared for re-election that America's pro-Second Amendment majority is prepared to strike back this November.



In liberty,



Senator Rand Paul



P.S. Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats shot down the so-called "Sportsmen's Bill" rather than hold votes on my gun rights amendments.
