The Firearms Coalition has been on the Internet for over a dozen years. We were among the first gun rights organizations, indeed, among the first of any sort of activist organization, to provide news updates via email, to host a web page, even to use computers as a means of connecting activists together.
This is a report from the Yuma Sun quoting a press release from preservationist groups. How establishing water sources in the harsh western Arizona desert environment in the midst of a drought endangers the desert bighorn is left as an exercise to the reader.

Conservationists have filed for a temporary restraining order with federal court to prevent any refuge actions that ignore public involvement.

Action demands counter-action and the Brady's latest campaign needs to be answered. Gun rights activists have proven over and over again that they can overwhelm politicians with calls, letters, and e-mails and we need to be doing so right now.
An unusual opportunity has been brought to our attention and I wanted to share it with our subscribers.
Our good friends at The Leadership Institute are expanding their college conservative outreach program and they are looking for 70 dynamic young people to recruit, train, and assist conservative students on college campuses in developing effective conservative activist organizations.

(18 June 2007) Cory Maye. Kathryn Johnston. Salvador and Carlota Celaya. Those are just a few of the lives ended or wrecked in botched police raids that combined military tactics, bad intelligence, poor judgment, and an appalling lack of judicial and civil oversight.

Take action now. Write to your Governor and the Attorney General and then write to your Senators and Representative.

I would have written a shorter letter, but I didn't have time.
