An e-mail from the Brday Campaign....Here we go folks.....
Moving Day Has Finally Arrived!
Finally! Celebrate NRA-Moving-Out Day with a Donation Our day has come at last. The NRA and the gun lobby have been forced to close up their "office in the White House."
This is truly the time for your Brady Campaign and for common sense gun laws.
Thanks to you, we're making a new start in Washington.
Click here to help launch our aggressive legislative initiatives at the outset of this critical year!
This is the moment: President Obama and Vice President Biden are long-time champions of common sense gun laws - and more than 91 percent of Brady-endorsed candidates won a seat in the 111th Congress!
Jim and I have high hopes for our renewed and reinvigorated efforts to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of dangerous people.
Donate to the Brady Campaign today. Your donation now will support our 2009 legislative agenda:
* Extending Brady background checks, including closing the gun show loophole;
* Renewing and strengthening the federal assault weapons ban; and
* Giving law enforcement the tools they need to stop illegal gun trafficking.
Our legislative goals are achievable. In fact, the Obama transition website says:
"Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets."
And we've already been to Capitol Hill to welcome back allies and meet new members of Congress. Just a few days ago, more than ten Brady Campaign staff members were at the Capitol and talked with more than 50 of our Senators and Representatives - including Vice President Biden.
