Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) are about to introduce a gun-grabbing bill in the Senate that will make Obama very, very proud.
The "Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act" is expected to be introduced sometime this month.
According to Texas Monthly, the bill would expand the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to include the names of every American who has ever sought mental health treatment.
Think about the implications of that for just a moment and what it would mean if this bill were to pass.
This could apply to millions of people
Everyone from returning veterans who have sought post-combat counseling to new mothers who are treated for post-partum depression could be denied the right to own a firearm.
Please send FaxGrams to the Senate immediately and urge them to defeat this gun-grabbing bill! We cannot stand for these repeated assaults on the Second Amendment!
Please do not fall for this ridiculous argument that every person who has ever suffered from mental illness is dangerous and should be banned from owning firearms.
This is a tactic that Obama and the left-wing media have been working on for years. They have been unable to ban our guns outright through legislation, so now they are attempting to ban certain people from owning guns.
It just so happens that the people in this instance are largely made up of returning veterans. By setting a precedent that our God-given rights only apply to some people, it opens the door for Obama and the gun-grabbers to violate the rights of other groups.
If a person seeks mental health treatment for a short-term problem, should they permanently lose their right to keep and bear arms?
The politicians keep saying that we must keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill.
Cross out the words "mentally ill" in that statement and replace them with "Jewish people" or "black people." Our short-sighted politicians would not be so eager to pass a bill that was this brazen.
Make no mistake about it: Between Obama's recent anti-gun executive orders and now this Graham-Cornyn bill, if you have ever visited a mental health counselor for any reason, you could be put on this list and barred from gun ownership.
We must get out in front of this terrible gun-grabbing bill and demand that the Senate reject it! Please use the form to the right to send your FaxGrams to the House and Senate today!
Our God-given right to defend our own lives against criminals and against a criminal government are at risk because of this bill and every bill like it.
You are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and therefore you have a right to life -- and a right to DEFEND that life -- that cannot be stolen by the gun-grabbers in Washington, D.C.
God warns us that a people who willfully disarm themselves are not worshipping Him, but rather some false god. Judges 5:8 warns us, "They chose new gods; then there was war in the gates: was there a shield or a spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?"
We must resist every effort by the gun-grabbers to sign away our unalienable right to keep and bear arms. It matters not whether the gun-grabber is a Democrat or a Republican by affiliation; they must respect the Constitution and our rights, or we will resist them!
Please join us in this effort to defeat the Graham-Cornyn gun-grabbing bill today! Send your FaxGrams demanding that they reject this bill!
Also, call your Representative and Senators directly at (202) 224-3121 and tell them the Second Amendment is not negotiable!

Dear Senator Scott:
HOW MUCH LONGER DO YOU EXPECT AMERICANS TO SUPPORT YOU?
I am appalled by the Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act which is about to be introduced in the Senate. This bill will violate the private medical records of Americans who have sought mental health treatment in the past, by placing them in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and banning them from firearms ownership.
Many politicians are now stating that we need to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill. Replace the words "mentally ill" with "black people" or "Jewish people" in that sentence and see if you would still support this measure. If Congress denies God-given rights to a certain segment of the population, it sets a dangerous precedent for this to happen.
Please think this through. Would you place returning veterans who need a few weeks of post-combat counseling on this list? How about new mothers who seek treatment for post-partum depression after they give birth, or couples who seek counseling from a mental health professional to help their marriage?
The Second Amendment says that the right of "the People" to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The Graham-Cornyn bill says that the rights of certain people CAN be infringed. This is a dangerous policy and you need to reject it.
Please note that "the People" will be watching your actions on this bill closely before the upcoming elections.
