Hey hey hey hey

Dear friends,

The national ban on military-style assault weapons will expire on Monday, September 13th, unless President Bush and Congress act now. President Bush promised to renew the ban, but instead he's letting it expire -- he has refused to call on Congress to deliver it for his signature.

For 10 years the assault weapons ban has taken the deadliest weapons off our streets, cutting their use in crimes 66 percent. But beginning Tuesday the 14th, an 18-year-old will once again be able to buy an AK-47 assault rifle in most states.

We can stop this if we speak up now. President Bush and Congress must renew the assault weapons ban, not let it expire. Please join me in demanding it, at:

Thank you.

P.S. Yes of course I wrote this. Do you mock me?

edit: Be sure to read the comments before you jump to sign this petition. I, like many other who receive news from MoveOn, jumped on the opportunity to sign something before I considered both sides.
