Act Relative to Gun Use No. 2290

It has been brought to my attention that on Tuesday, February 26th, 2008, an Act Relative to Gun Use No.2290 comes before the Senate and House of Representatives in the General Court in the State House Building, Beacon Street at Park Street, Boston. This Act will be presented to ban the use of Assault Rifles.

Everyone who knows me - knows that I am not a fan of the NRA and believe that the fact we even hold a discussion about defending an individual's right to own an assault rifle is borderline immoral let alone bad policy. Unfortunately, I can not attend this meeting, but I have sent off an e-mail to Mr. Al Medeiros and I would like to ask you to consider doing the same. Please consider sending the following e-mail to voice your support of the Act Relative to Gun Use No. 2290. - (attention: Al Medeiros)

Dear Senators and House of Representatives,

I am writing to you today to ask that you ban all Assault Rifles
according to the Act Relative to Gun Use, No. 2290. I cannot be
present on Tuesday, February 26, 2008, at 1:00 p.m., to speak but am sending this email to register my hope that you will take correct action and vote to ban these weapons in Massachusetts to make it safer for us all.

Thank you.
(your name here)

In the event that you can attend this hearing and would like to show your support for banning all assault rifles according to the Act Relative to Gun Use, No. 2290, you can go to the following address:

Beacon Street at Park Street
Room 1A at 1:00 p.m.
Boston, MA

I heard about this piece of legislation through another source. I wonder if I could ask you exactly who Medeiros is and where he fits into the picture. He's not a legislator. Is he a pedestrian, a guy like you and me who has a mission to see this thing through? Just want to know how he fits into the picture. BTW I am not a MA resident. Have family there, but not sure if my email will have any weight. -LC
