RE: Pull ACORN Funding and Expand The FBI Investigation!
Dear [Sen.] or [Rep.] [LAST NAME]:
I'm writing to ask you to please oppose the "Obama Anti-Gun" Agenda that includes ACORN Funding and Expand the FBI Investigation of ACORN.
I the undersigned, as a citizen of the United States, do hereby demand that you pull ACORN funding and expand the FBI investigation. For the past few election cycles ACORN has clearly grown more partisan toward the radical political Left. ACORN'S PAC, in fact, endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president, even though their tax-exempt status prohibits endorsement of political candidates.
ACORN -- the Association of Community Organizations for Reform -- a publicly funded national organization is using tax dollars to actively interfere with the Second Amendment exercise of gun rights in New Jersey and elsewhere.
We call upon the FBI to expand the scope of its ACORN investigation and focus on the group's involvement in the Jersey City gun case.
ACORN went public with its gun control activism when it intervened in an unsuccessful attempt to defend Jersey City, New Jersey, a hot bed of anti-gun rights extremists, to disarm its citizens with a local gun control ordinance. ACORN pushed for stronger local gun restrictions that were already struck down by the New Jersey state court as a violation of state law.
Obama and ACORN's interest is in disarming law-abiding citizens.
It is an outrage that this tax payer supported group has intervened to defend an anti-gun ordinance that has already been declared illegal by the court. So long as ACORN accepts one penny of public funding, the organization should remain absolutely neutral on social issues, political campaigns and especially legal actions defending the right to keep and bear arms.
The Founding Fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they wrote the Second Amendment -– they were giving the people the right to defend themselves against all threats--including the threat of an oppressive government.
America's 85 million gun owners have ample reason to be pessimistic about how their civil rights will fare under the Obama administration. Gun control is about making people safe- NOT about government controlling the people.
That's what's at stake here. Our freedom. Our future.
The most important job you have to do right now is to protect U.S. citizens Second Amendment rights. Like millions of Americans, I'm sick and tired of the "inside the beltway" politics on this issue; I will listen to NO MORE weasel words or slick excuses.
This issue is BLACK OR WHITE - there are NO "shades of gray." We need you to protect Americans and their Right to Bear Arms. Please, oppose the "Obama Anti-Gun" Agenda that includes ACORN Funding and Expand the FBI Investigation. I will be watching your vote on this issue very closely. Thank you.
