Subject: [NAR_Sections] NPRM Comments Desperately Needed


I got an update today from John Kyte,the NAR's legislative liaison, that 
read as follows:

        "ATF is claiming that very few NOPR comments received
        to date question the 62.5 gram rule . . . "

This means ATF is telling the Congress, "See?  These rules aren't so bad 
because nobody's commenting on them."

I NEED EVERY NAR SECTION LEADER TO CARRY A MESSAGE TO THEIR CLUB MEMBERS
ASAP.

I NEED AS MANY NAR MEMBERS AS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE TO SEND IN A COMMENT 
OPPOSING THE ATFE'S JANUARY 29 2003 NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE MAKING IF 
THEY'VE NOT DONE SO ALREADY.

DO IT NOW.

If we don't do this, we'll weaken the Congressional effort, as well as miss 
our chance to force the ATF to analyze and legally respond to points raised 
in the NPRM process.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE YOUR IMPACT.

Cogent comments, such as those we've outlined for you here earlier are 
critical towards making sure the ATF either responds with facts, within
the 
bounds of the law, or if they don't, opens the door to strengthen either 
our case in the courts or in front of the Congress.

If you need further guidance about how to respond or what to say, let me 
know, and I'll repost my comments on that subject.

But whatever you do, get those comments in the mail ASAP, please??

Regardless of how the NPRM is processed by ATFE, we need to show the 
Congress that we care deeply and passionately about this issue.  The best
way to do that right now is to comment on the NPRM in volume.

Please be sure to remind your members to comment.

Cheers, Bunny
