More From GOA On HR2640

I have said in earlier posts that parts of this legislation just plain mystify me. The part that is most disturbing is the suggestion that a physician can ban people from owning firearms. The bill is now headed to President Bush for signature. GOA has been fighting this bill since its inception, though the NRA appears to be going along to get along.

"What the bill does is to lock in – statutorily – huge numbers of additional law-abiding Americans who will now be denied the right to own a firearm," Pratt's organization said. "And then it 'graciously' allows these newly disarmed Americans to spend tens of thousands of dollars for a long-shot change to regain the gun rights this very bill takes away from them." -- Gun Owners of America, in an open letter to NRA members.
