Dear Brady Campaign Member,
I'm simply aghast!
In a 2-1 decision in Parker v. District of Columbia, right-wing activist judges on a Federal Appeals Court recently overturned Washington D.C.'s long-standing restrictions on handguns based on their twisted view of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution while ignoring more than 60 years of precedent a decision that endangers America's gun laws coast-to-coast.
This case could land before the U.S. Supreme Court within the next 6 months and each month brings a tidal wave of work to fight this terrible decision. Simply put: we need your support today!
Please click here to make a commitment of $5 or more per month for the next 6 months. This affordable amount will automatically be charged to your credit card each month unless you decide to extend, change or cancel your monthly commitment.
Your monthly gift will be a steady source of income that will help us:
- Convene well-recognized experts in constitutional law and history to develop the most powerful arguments against the Parker ruling;
- Assemble a comprehensive library of books, treatises, articles, court decisions and legal briefs refuting the "individual rights" view of the Second Amendment and make this library available to lawyers nationwide and on the Internet; and
- Launch a major public education campaign including full-page ads in major newspapers and a new Brady Gun Law Defense Fund website. We'll also organize lawyers and law professors to write newspaper op-eds and letters to the editor to create a constant drumbeat of criticism of this decision.
This battle to its very core is the most important battle we have ever waged. We need your help today your monthly support to build a strong Brady Gun Law Defense Fund to save America's gun laws.
This fight is so critical to the safety and sanity of our nation
that an anonymous donor has extended his challenge and
will match dollar for dollar all monthly gifts
to our Brady Gun Law Defense Fund.
So your $5 monthly gift is worth $10, your $25 monthly gift is worth $50!
We must prepare for the fight of our lives. Everything we have worked for in the past and everything we’re currently working on could be destroyed by the heinous ruling of right-wing activist judges who choose to ignore more than 60 years of precedent in order to help the gun lobby accomplish in the courts what they’ve been unable to accomplish in Congress.
Please respond today. Thank you.
