Dear fellow supporters:
This is an exciting time for us right now, as we put together the formal
Constitutional Challenge of the Firearms Act. We will be formally submitting
our constitutional challenge to the courts by April 30th (Yes, I know that's
on a Sunday, but that's the date the judge gave us!)
I'm writing this to ask for your input before the April 30th deadline. We
all have a stake in this court case and therefore should also have a say. I
think we are very close to covering all the constitutional issues relevant
to the Firearms Act, but I don't want to miss any.
I have copied below the "Morton Summary" which outlines many of the areas of
the constitution that the Firearms Act violates. What I am asking, is for
you to let me know if there are any other issues that should be addressed
before we formally submit our challenge. We want to make sure that we are
truly speaking on behalf of all firearms owners in this country, and we
would welcome your input.
I would also encourage you to pass this on to any pro-rights or shooting
associations that might have some valuable input on this important issue as
well. We've tried to reach as many groups as we could find (and almost all
are supportive), but our list may not be complete. We would hate to see any
group look back on this Constitutional Challenge and wonder why we didn't
pursue certain constitutional issues. We want to make sure that everyone has
a chance at input before the clock runs out.
