Don't Let the Assault Weapons Ban Expire

The fate of the national assault weapons ban will be decided in the next few days. Please sign on below to demand that President Bush and Congress not let it expire -- and then ask your friends and colleagues to sign. We'll immediately forward your comments to President Bush and your Senators and Representative.

President Bush campaigned on a promise to renew the ban on deadly assault weapons. But now he's letting the ban expire in Congress, blocking the renewal to gain the endorsement of the extremist gun lobby. It's wrong to put weapons of mass murder back on our streets. We believe:

"We've got to keep deadly assault weapons off our streets. The national assault weapons ban must not expire -- it must be renewed immediately."
We'll deliver your message to President Bush and Congress before the ban expires on Monday, September 13th. Act now to send an email with this message to the President, your Senators, your Representative in Congress, and other political leaders. Please enter your name, email address, ZIP code, and personal comment below.
