ALERT FROM JEWS FOR THE PRESERVATION OF FIREARMS OWNERSHIP
America's Aggressive Civil Rights Organization

February 11, 2005

JPFO ALERT: NEW ELECTRONIC ID BILL THREATENS
YOUR FIREARMS OWNERSHIP

On Thursday, February 10, the U.S. House of Representatives
passed a bill so filled with horrors that it makes a George
Romero zombie movie look like "The Muppets Take Manhattan."

"The Real ID Act" (H.R. 418 http://tinyurl.com/3qdv4)
sponsored by Rep. James Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, has
something in it to make everybody fear for their freedom.

* Liberals hate it because if it becomes law it would force
political asylum-seekers to prove the motivations of their
persecutors (literally, an impossible task).

* States-rights advocates hate it because it gives the
federal government power to determine who can get drivers
licenses and how those licenses will be issued.

* Civil libertarians hate it because in addition to being
the next giant step to a true national ID card, it calls
for limitless information about us all to be placed in vast
Homeland Security databases.

* EVERYONE should hate it because it allows the Department
of Homeland Security to suspend laws -- and then forbids
the courts to redress this savage abuse of government
power.

* And gun-owners in particular should hate and fear it
because it's yet another back door to enable the federal
government to steal our right to keep and bear arms.

Here are two articles on the bill.

This one deals primarily with the ID provisions:

This one covers many of the bill's horrors and also
explains how the ID provisions are harsher than those that
were passed into law just two months ago:

In what way does another, stricter, tighter national ID
bill threaten your right to own guns? As our friends at Gun
Owners of America wrote
(http://www.gunowners.org/a020905.htm):

"Since you need a driver's license to purchase a gun from a
dealer, this will give BATFE the expanded ability to impose
even greater forms of gun control -- something which it has
long coveted. This will become even more apparent if an
anti-gun Democrat like Hillary Clinton wins the presidency
in 2008."

Do you look forward to the day when the federal government
might deny you a driver's license? Or the day when your use
of a license in a gun shop creates an instant Homeland
Security database entry on you?

Do you look forward to being profiled as a "gun nut" and a
security risk because of your purchases? Do you look
forward to the day when the federal government not only
knows every gun owner but has the means to track our
activities in realtime as we work, shop, bank and perform
the growing number of activities tied together by one big
ID system?

HR 418 has the strong-armed support of the White House.
Nearly every Republican in the House voted for it. The U.S.
Senate is the only thing standing between us and this house
of horrors -- and sponsors are already conniving to attach
HR 418 to a "must pass" piece of legislation.

BOHICA. (http://www.jpfo.org/bohica.htm)

This is what we get -- once again -- for trusting either,
or any, political party. This is the way "business as
usual" works. It *doesn't* work for freedom. This is what
we get when we settle on compromise and accept the lesser
of two evils. We get evil.

If you still support these villains with your votes, your
money, or your labor, now is the time to STOP. Be
realistic. Give up the mad hope that "business as usual" or
"reform" will ever produce anything other than the usual --
and growingly horrible -- results.

Gun owners need to withdraw their support from those who
betray them again and again and again. Then we need to
actively band together with every liberty lover whose
rights have been excluded and declared expendable by
political powers (http://www.jpfo.org/outreach.htm).

We need to educate our friends and neighbors and together
create a Bill of Rights Culture to replace the rotten
political culture that is taking over our once free nation.
We need to tell them and SHOW them what's going on in our
country. (http://www.jpfo.org/batfevideo.htm)

It's your choice. Politics as usual or freedom as it should
be. You can't have both.
