http://www.stopthenra.com Dear Supporter, Today Senator John Kerry makes a strong defense of the ban and blasts President George W. Bush for blocking the renewal. "In the Al Qaeda manual on terror, they were telling people to go out and buy assault weapons, to come to America and buy assault weapons," Kerry said. "Every law enforcement officer in America doesn't want us selling assault weapons in the streets of America, but George Bush, he says, 'Well, I'm for that."' Kerry said that Bush was caving to demands of the National Rifle Association. What other explanation is there, when surveys show nearly 80 percent of Americans want it renewed, and every major law enforcement group supports renewing the ban? Also, our full-page ad today talks about the absurdity of President Bush letting the Assault Weapons Ban expire in this day and age despite his pledge to keep the nation safe from terrorism. The ad shows Osama bin Laden carrying an AK-47 assault rifle and quotes an Al Qaeda training manual that says: "In countries like the United States it's perfectly legal for members of the public to own certain types of firearms. If you live in such a country obtain an assault rifle legally, preferably an AK-47 or variations." With your ongoing support we will win this fight. Please contribute what you can.
