One might ask, “What does this have to do with me?” I am sure most of you remember the “assault” weapons ban.  Arbitrary features on certain rifles made them illegal if they were manufactured after a certain date.  Now the ATF would like to do the same with imported shotguns.  This is a back-door assault on the Second Amendment.  If this rule is instituted, what will be next?

Some of the 10 features which would bar a shotgun from import are integrated rails, light enhancing devices, forward pistol grips, collapsing/folding or telescoping stocks, flash suppressors and magazines which hold more than 5 rounds. The premise is that these features are not necessary for “sporting purposes”.  Well, frankly, I never saw the phrase “sporting purposes” in the Bill of Rights!  Our United States Constitution says that “...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. ”

In addition to the proposed rule being unconstitutional, it will violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Light enhancing devices (think fiber optic sights) allow many to clearly see their sights.  Telescoping stocks allow fathers, mothers and children to share a firearm in a safe manner.  Forward pistol grips allow for more controllability, making it viable for many with disabilities to still effectively use a shotgun safely.

What can you do?

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.
