ATF To Ban Tactical Shotguns

2/24/2011


ALERT: ATF to Ban Tactical Shotguns
Gun Digest Book of the Tactical Shotgun

Dear Shotgun Owner,

I hope you're not one of those gun owners who said, "They'll never come for my shotguns."

If you are, I'm afraid the rain is about to fall on your parade.

You see, the ATF is coming for your shotguns ... with a vengeance.

The ATF wants to ban the importation of any tactical shotgun it views as not meeting the "sporting suitability" use as defined in the Gun Control Act of 1968.

That means all they need to do is make up a bunch of "features" that don't (according to them) "fit" a sporting use of a shotgun.

It's an open door for an outright shotgun ban ... the very same shotguns that are probably in your gun safe right this minute.

This ban may seem too horrible and too outrageous to be real. But believe me when I tell you: This is no hoax. You can read the Gun Digest report here:

BATFE Wants To Ban Importation Of “Military” Style Shotguns

You can download and read the 34-page ATF Shotgun Ban Proposal here:

ATF Study on the Importability of Certain Shotguns

Make no mistake: This ban will affect hundreds of gun makers who produce shotguns that are currently in use not only by law enforcement and the military in the United States but also homeowners who simply want an effective home defense shotgun.

The real question is, what can you do about it? For starters, get informed about these guns. Our friends at Gun Digest have just released a new book you need to own. It's called the Gun Digest Book of the Tactical Shotgun. It's brand new, and you need it to make a good decision about all the new options on the market (options the ATF may soon outlaw).

This book covers everything you need to know about which tactical shotguns and accessories are the best and what will fit your fighting style and needs.

Buy this book. Then buy a shotgun. In that order.

But there's one more thing. Part of the proceeds from your purchase of this book (and my other recommended books found below) goes to support the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners. So take a minute to stockpile a good assortment of books. Add The Gun Digest Book of the Tactical Shotgun to your cart while you still can.

Thanks for your support,

Dudley
Dudley Brown Executive Director

PS - The ATF is proposing to ban importation on all tactical shotguns it asserts don't have any "sporting" use. If they succeed, this will be the most dangerous interpretation of the 1968 Gun Control Act ever envisioned and will outlaw thousands of perfectly legitimate home defense shotguns. To give RMGO the resources to stop this threat, you can buy the newly-released Gun Digest Book of the Tactical Shotgun at special RMGO supporter prices ... plus a portion of the proceeds from your purchase will go back to RMGO to stop this backdoor gun ban.

Constitutional Carry faces first hurdle in Colorado Legislature Contact Needed with Committee Members

Feb. 17, 2011

Next week the Constitutional Carry bill faces it's first hurdle in the Colorado Legislature when it is heard in the House Judiciary Committee.

On Thursday, Feb. 24th at 1:30pm the House Judiciary Committee will hear HB1205 by Rep. Chris Holbert (R-Parker) and Sen. Greg Brophy (R-Wray).

This bill already has a huge number of co-sponsors, but to reach the House floor it needs to first pass through this committee.

If you have not already done so, please click here to sign our petition for Constitutional Carry.

And then take the time to join Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and help us pass Constitutional Carry in Colorado.

This bill is designed to do one thing: allow citizens who are legally eligible to possess handguns to carry that handgun concealed, without obtaining a costly, burdensome and bureaucratic permit.

This bill doesn't get rid of the existing permits.  It just gives citizens another option for self defense.

That's what I call real freedom.

One of the chief advantages this bill presents is that citizens are not put on any government tracking list merely for carrying the tools for self defense, nor do they have to pay fees for a permit.

I've heard a lot of people say "The Constitution is my permit", but this actually gives teeth to that thought.

Citizens in Vermont, Alaska and Arizona currently enjoy that right, and Wyoming could be joining that list in the next few weeks.

Just as important as what HB1205 does are what it does not do:

  • Does not repeal or otherwise change Colorado’s existing concealed carry permit law (CRS 18-12-201).
  • Does not authorize the carrying of a concealed handgun by felons, the mentally ill, juveniles or anyone otherwise prohibited from possessing a handgun under state and federal law.
  • Does not change where concealed handguns are allowed as defined by CRS 18-12-214.
  • Does not affect reciprocity agreements with other states in any manner.
  • Does not affect the ability of prosecutors to pursue charges for other crimes.

This bill is a major step for freedom, and is something every gun owner in Colorado should get behind.

Even if you already have a concealed carry permit, this bill is still a major advance for freedom, since it wouldn't affect your permit.

Today, I need you to contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee to politely urge them to support this important legislation.

Note: Rep. Bob Gardner, the Committee Chairman, is the only Republican on this committee who has not yet co-sponsored this bill.
