McCarthy bill would treat gun owners even worse than terrorists

Gunowners of America - another screed in opposition to H.R.297, the "NICS Improvement Act of 2007". I used this capwiz page to send the following. The first two paragraphs were from GOA. I wrote the concluding paragraph. [skype]

Representative Gillibrand:

As a supporter of Second Amendment rights, I do NOT support HR 297, the
NICS Improvement Act. I hope that you will OPPOSE this bill and urge your
party leadership to either kill it outright or to allow other pro-gun
amendments to be offered (repeal of the DC gun ban, reciprocity for
concealed carry holders, etc.).

In its current form, HR 297 will treat gun owners even worse than
terrorists, giving the FBI a mountain of private information on
law-abiding Americans like me.

If you continue to pass "laws" that treat us like terrorists, you will
succeed. We'll become terrorists, to defend our families. Members of
Congress who attacked us will be among our first targets. Don't do it. We
just want to quietly raise our children. Stop meddling in our affairs, and
we'll do just that. Push us, and we'll explode in your face.
