January 29 Update
Final Confirmation Vote Set for Monday, February 2!
During his confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Eric Holder stated that the Second Amendment means what the Supreme Court says it means and then went on to declare that the Court's decision in Heller leaves plenty of room for such things as closing the "gun show loophole,"restricting "cop-killer bullets," and reinstituting a ban on "assault weapons." So much for supporting theSecond Amendment.
The Judiciary Committee delayed their vote by a week and finally voted last Wednesday. They recommended confirmation by a vote of 17 to 2. (See related story) The final vote of the full Senate is now scheduled for Monday!
Please continue contacting your senators and urging them to oppose the Holder confirmation. Ask your senators to place a hold on the confirmation or to support a hold placed by another senator.
To contact your senators click here and go to your senators' web pages to use their web contact forms and to get their phone numbers. Put a call in to each office number they list and call and e0mail every day until the vote! Get friends and family to do likewise.
Remind your senators that Holder has been vocally anti-gun, vocally anti-Second Amendment, and actively supported illegal restrictions and record keeping on guns and gunowners. Tell your senators that you see a vote for Holder, or a vote for cloture to end a filibuster against Holder's confirmation, as an anti-gun vote and you will remember their decision in their next election.
Please spread this message to every friend, forum, blog and bulletin board you can find. Since NRA has told Senators that they are not counting the Holder vote in their grading, calls and letters from outraged constituants are the only real pressure being brought to bear against the nomination. Your Calls Can Make ALL the Difference! Don't Let Up!
