Hello Freedom Lovers,
 
It is the end of a VERY LONG WEEK. The events in Tucson have dominated the news and the minds of America. I thought I would share some observations by SAS, things we have kept track of, things being said about the event and actions across the country, our thoughts on the event. This is for your info, hope it helps you not only deal with the tragedy of the event, but also situations you may encounter later, and the anti-rights messages and actions you may run across. Let me know if I missed something, I'll blast that out too. 
 
First, SAS national's formal statement about the event was posted on our website: www.2asisters.org, I will share it here:
 
The tragic occurrence at AZ Congresswoman Gifford's "Congress on Your Corner" event this week has captured the minds and hearts of America. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. 
 
As Second Amendment Sisters, we will simply continue to adhere to our conviction that self-defense is our right and responsibility. In that context, our appreciation goes to those citizens who took action to stop the attack and to those in the spot light who are remaining above the political rhetoric that revolves around this terrible incident. No law or rule can change or prevent the actions of someone who is obviously determined to harm others. This is a human issue, it is our hope that people will show respect to those that are suffering and keep them in their prayers. 
 
Second, I wanted to give you some factoids shared/learned by the gun community here is AZ. It is my hope that these are things you can use, things we can do to fend off those who will use this event against us to try to disarm us.

Lead Ammo Ban PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 15 August 2010 13:11
They tried this before, folks, at least here in Arizona, well they are at it again, they want to ban ammo containing lead components. What do they tell us we can use instead? Well, copper is a nice HIGH PRICED and scarce alternative, they would have us use steel instead too, anything but lead that they claim harms wildlife, despite FACT that proves not. I'd say steel would be an option, but then they'd come after us with accusations of using armor piecing bullets. There is no option folks, lead is it and the claim that wildlife is harmed is a scare tactic we have to bust. Arm yourself with knowledge and when it comes your turn to write you congress person or talk to the public about this, be ready. 
A good write up from the Seattle Examiner is here: 
http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-seattle/lead-ammo-ban-sought-from-epa-threatens-gun-owners-game-agencies-say-critics
The NRA has some factoids listed about lead bullets too, that article is referenced in the Examiner article.
My soap box (I'll be brief):
The people behind this, the U.S. Humane Society (different than your local humane society, by the way, who does do needed animal control and care work, USHS is different). USHS are the ones who tell us guns are evil, the only thing people use guns for is to kill animals. This just isn't so and this is a huge myth we at SAS work hard to bust. This latest ban attempt is the USHS's attempt to take away our guns, point blank!
