I just received this from C4L. Ok, it is written to Texans, but it is happening right now on the Senate floor in Washington, D.C., so it is of concern to all of us.

If you value the 2nd Amendment and want to see it preserved, please call your Senators tonight.

Also, if you are an NRA member, call them and ask them why they are not there supporting Rand Paul and opposing Harry Reid.

May 25, 2011

Dear Texas Patriots,

Senator Rand Paul is continuing his efforts to hold Harry Reid accountable to his February promise to allow a full week of debate and open amendments on extending the Patriot Act.

In defiance of Senate orders, Sen. Paul courageously brought up three amendments and asked for unanimous consent to allow a discussion and a vote on them.

Harry Reid then personally objected to protecting gun owners' rights and shut the attempt down.

Rand is ensuring that this Patriot Act fight is far from over.

Now is the time to call our Senators and demand that they do not sacrifice our 2nd Amendment rights in the name of fighting terror!

Do our elected officials not remember that every thwarted hijacking since 9/11 has been accomplished by American civilians?
  • United Flight 93: Forced down by civilians
  • Shoe Bomber: Stopped by the passengers
  • The so-called “underwear bomber”: stopped by an American citizen

Why would anyone except a despot and a tyrant want to disarm the law abiding citizens of this country?

Please call John Cornyn at (202) 224-2934 and Kay Bailey Hutchison at (202) 224-5922.

Once you have phoned your Senators, please call Harry Reid at (202) 224-3542. Demand that Senator Reid stop using dirty tricks to pass unconstitutional bills. Remind him that parliamentary rules were not made to be broken, and the Constitution is not just a piece of paper.

Yours in Freedom,
Deb McKee
Interim Texas State Coordinator
Campaign for Liberty

P.S. Sen. Reid is personally objecting to Sen. Paul’s amendments to make sure the Patriot Act does not tread on our 2nd Amendment rights. Our Senators should be supporting our constitutional rights and not bowing to the demands of Sen. Reid. Please call them now and demand they support Sen. Rand Paul’s amendments to the Patriot Act.

Please call John Cornyn at (202) 224-2934 and Kay Bailey Hutchison at (202) 224-5922.And hurry, the vote could happen at 1:00 AM tonight (Wednesday night.)

P.P.S. By the way, since Reid is constantly blocking Rand's efforts to stand up for gun owners, where's the statement, NRA? (Maybe look for it over by where you left the statement supporting the DISCLOSE Act.)
