Missoula, MT –-(Ammoland.com)- See below the text of a letter I just sent to Montana's congressional delegation.
If you wish to weigh in on this, send something similar yourself, or just send an email, fax or phone message saying “I agree with the MSSA position against “universal background checks.”

Dear Senators Baucus and Tester, and Congressman Daines,
As we predicted, the interest by Congress to “do something” about new gun control is now resolving to “universal background checks,” an euphemism for universal gun owner registration.
In case you should have any question about it, MSSA is totally, unalterably opposed to ANY new gun control, especially including any system of actual or defacto “universal background checks.”
First, all available data demonstrates that criminals obtain their firearms almost exclusively by illegal means, so they would be unaffected by any background checks.
Second, if you don't understand the implication of what would effectively become universal gun and gun owner registration, please look at the publication Lethal Laws produced by the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. In Lethal Laws, JPFO documents that during the century of the 1900s there were between 160 million and 260 million human beings put to death by their own governments in genocides around the World.
In Lethal Laws, JPFO also documents that every one of the genocides of the 1900s was preceded by gun confiscation, so defenseless people could easily be rounded up and killed, and every case of widespread firearm confiscation was preceded by gun registration. Of course, governments told their citizens that the government was just trying to keep everyone safe.
Most Montana gun owners know of the JPFO research, and that genocide is always preceded by gun confiscation, which is always preceded by gun registration. That's why they take the gun registration inherent in “universal background checks” so very seriously.
I apologize if this seems like strong language, but I want to be frank and honest. Most Montana gun owners understand that a vote for “universal background checks” will actually be a vote to begin down the track that ended in genocide every time it was done in the 1900s.
For any Montana gun owners who don't already understand this connection, MSSA will surely inform them. There's just no way to sugar-coat this or say it more nicely – a vote for gun registration, even if euphemistically described as “universal background checks,” will be seen as putting necessary pieces into place for subsequent genocide.
So, we hope you will be staunch in your opposition to ANY new federal gun control proposed in Congress, but especially to “universal background checks.”.
