HELP STOP THE APPOINTMENT OF EXTREMIST JUDGES
Our partners at CREDO Action urge you to contact the Senate Judiciary Committee Chair
The United States Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling soon in District of Columbia v. Heller, which promises to be the most significant Second Amendment case in U.S. history. The Heller decision will affect the constitutionality of gun laws for a generation.
As we wait for the decision in the Heller case, our partners at CREDO Action have asked us to forward this alert to you. They are asking you to protect our nation's gun laws by making your voice heard on President Bush's judicial appointees. We hope you read it over, and if you agree with CREDO, take action.
Dear Brady Campaign Member,
George Bush has only nine months left in office; he and his allies are still trying to ram through a set of judicial nominees that could run the courts for the next 50 years.
The Heller case before the Supreme Court is a reminder of the importance of federal judicial nominations to preserving hard-fought legislative victories against the gun lobby. The battle against gun violence is fought in courts as well as in legislatures. We must be vigilant to prevent the appointment of judges who will enforce an extremist reading of the Second Amendment.
So I hope you'll take action today to ensure that Congress will block the appointment of federal judges who are hostile to reasonable gun control laws.
Thank you for working to build a better world.

Thanks to CREDO Mobile (formerly Working Assets) for taking the lead on this important issue. We hope you consider taking action.

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
So remember folks. The Brady Campaign in no way advocates gun bans except to call for various gun bans, smearing legislators who oppose their "reasonable" laws, and lobbying for judges that will support and uphold them. Recognizing the 2A as a right of the people and following the words of the Founding Fathers is considered "extremist".
In one of those little bits of irony, the "parent company" , WorkingAssets, has a group called the Center for Constitutional Rights listed right below the Brady Campaign(under Civil Rights no less), an organization dedicated to restricting rights and upholding racist and discriminatory laws .
