Congressional Second Amendment Leader Under Massive Attack


Once more the Gun Owners of America are alerting us to a pro-gun congresswoman under attack. The extended entry has details, but the short version is, they would like you to consider contributing to the re-election campaign of Carolyn Musgrave to help her counter some of the negative advertising $1-million-plus in that's being funded by a liberal group.


Once more the Gun Owners of America are alerting us to a pro-gun congresswoman under attack. The extended entry has details, but the short version is, they would like you to consider contributing to the re-election campaign of Carolyn Musgrave to help her counter some of the negative advertising $1-million-plus in that's being funded by a liberal group.

Rep. Marilyn Musgrave has more than lived up to expectations during her first term in Congress. She worked with Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) to found the Second Amendment Caucus in the U.S. House. It has a membership that includes the most aggressive pro-gun members of the House.

Under Rep. Musgrave's leadership, the Caucus organized a presentation by Dr. John Lott and Dr. Bob Cottrell to inform congressional offices about the truth of the ban on semi-autos. It was very effective and was very helpful for many of the staff who needed "ammunition" and talking points in opposition to the ban.

Musgrave continued in the U.S. House what she often did in the Colorado legislature -- she stood up to the leadership of her own party. In Congress these confrontations have included resisting tax increases and the further socializing of the American medical system.

Gun owners need to have Marilyn Musgrave back in Congress so that we can go on the offensive here in Washington on the gun issue. Musgrave is poised to lead this effort in 2005, but first she must win her second term.

A liberal group has launched an ad campaign with an estimated budget of well over $1,000,000 aimed at defeating Musgrave and replacing her with a former state senator who supports gun control.

One of the ads shows an actress (who looks very much like Musgrave) stealing a wristwatch from a corpse in a coffin. In another ad, the Musgrave look-alike is shown stealing from a soldier's burning house while he is fighting in Iraq. Outrageous, yes. But remember the philosophy of Hitler's chief propagandist: tell a big enough lie often enough and it will be believed.

Musgrave has graduated to the big leagues, and it costs plenty to play in the majors. I am asking you to join with me in personally contributing to the reelection campaign of this courageous champion of the Second Amendment.

Her defeat would send a very loud and negative message to the majority of wobbly members of Congress. Namely, it's O.K. to talk pro-gun, but don't do anything about it or the liberal big money groups will pile on and defeat you. And, don't do anything to ruffle the feathers of the leadership of your own party.

We cannot allow that to happen. Please contribute online to Musgrave's campaign right now at http://www.musgrave2004.com -- the election is now just a few days away.

If you prefer, you can send a check by mailing the form below -- but please, do it right away. Musgrave simply must be able to match the huge flood of money that her opponents are dumping into her campaign.
