Save Our State of Massachusetts

Urgent Action Alert

Today at 5pm (EDT), Harry Reid has scheduled an important initial Senate vote on re-authorizing the anti-gun Patriot Act.

   As I told you on Friday, Reid has conspired with Speaker John Boehner to force a re-authorization of the mis-named Patriot Act through Congress.

   The Obamacrats and Big-Government Republicans are desperate to give a radically anti-gun White House the tools to spy on “domestic terrorists” – translate that to mean law-abiding gun owners like you and me.

   If today’s Motion to Proceed passes, they could formally vote on and pass a four-year extension of the Patriot Act as early as THIS Thursday!

   Please, immediately contact Sen. John Kerry at (202) 224-2742 and Sen. Scott Brown at (202) 224-4543 and demand that they oppose re-authorization of the Patriot Act.

   Re-authorization of the mis-named Patriot Act gives government jackboots more and more tools in their war on gun owners and gun rights activists, who Obamacrats smear as “Radical Extremists” and even “Domestic Terrorists.”

   Even a gesture as simple as placing a pro-gun bumper sticker on your car or supporting a pro-gun candidate makes you a potential “domestic terrorist” in the eyes of the Obamacrats currently running our government.

   That makes YOU a potential target of unconstitutional domestic spying.

   I hope you’re not confused by Washington’s political games.

   Let me be very clear, a vote for cloture (passage) of the Motion to Proceed this afternoon is a vote to shred your rights.

   Obamacrats and their anti-liberty Republican stooges may hem and haw about how Monday’s vote is only “procedural,” but don’t be confused.

   An “Aye” vote on Monday is a vote to extend and re-authorize:

  • Roving, warrantless wiretaps of virtually EVERY form of electronic communication used by U.S. citizens.
  • Secret federal searches without warrants OR knowledge of the resident.
  • Blanket warrants for the search and seizure of all library records, without naming individual suspects or providing probable cause.
  • Judicial warrants replaced with “National Security Letters” signed by unaccountable Obama Administration bureaucrats and gag orders for those served with these letters which make it illegal to tell anyone about it — including your spouse and your priest!
  • Drastic expansion of the definition of “domestic terrorism,” which is sure to include gun owners.
  • Expands asset seizure to permit the taking of assets from anyone “suspected” of terrorism, even if that person is NEVER charged or sent to trial.
  • Lone wolf provisions which allow the government to spy on ANYONE even if they’re not associated with a terrorist organization or foreign national, without due process or notification.

   I need you to call both of your U.S. Senators today, and DEMAND that they oppose ANY extension of the Patriot Act.

   Immediately contact Sen. John Kerry at (202) 224-2742 and Sen. Scott Brown at (202) 224-4543 and demand that they oppose re-authorization of the Patriot Act.

   Please call your Senators right now.

   This cannot wait. They will vote in a few short hours and EVERY SINGLE call they receive matters.

   For Liberty,

  signature
   Dudley Brown
   Executive Director

P.S. Please don’t delay. Harry Reid and John Boehner’s scheme to reauthorize the Patriot Act will be voted on Monday at 5pm (EDT).

   I need you to immediately contact Sen. John Kerry at (202) 224-2742 and Sen. Scott Brown at (202) 224-4543 and demand that they oppose re-authorization of the Patriot Act.

   Tell them that you know a vote for cloture this afternboon is a vote against your basic Constitutional rights.

   Once you’ve contacted your Senators please chip in $15 or $20 to help the National Association for Gun Rights contact more gun owners about the outrageous attempt to extend the mis-named Patriot Act.
