CISPA Putting Gun Owner Privacy At Stake

Colorado -–(Ammoland.com)- Congress is dangerously close to putting another nail in the coffin of your personal privacy on the internet . . .

. . . especially if you are an online purchaser of ammo or firearms-related items.

For nearly four years, gun owners have been considered “suspect” by an administration hell-bent on restricting gun rights.

And now, the Obama administration, working in conjunction with Democrats AND Republicans in Congress, may have found a way to do so all in the name of “cybersecurity.”

On Thursday, Congress is set to begin consideration of H.R. 3523, the “Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011″ (CISPA).

Your action right now is vital to putting a stop to CISPA’s threat to the personal privacy of gun owners.

CISPA, also supported by Facebook and Twitter, would encourage companies to give the federal government sensitive information that is now currently prohibited by law without a warrant or subpoena.

And the most troubling bit of information is that my sources on Capitol Hill tell me that House Leadership on both sides of the aisle is putting on a full court press to gain the support of your elected representative.

This includes “private,” “closed door,” “members-only” meetings.

The fact is, if passed, CISPA would allow voluntary exchanges of personally identifiable information – including your firearms-related purchasing habits -- to ANY government agency that wants it . . .

. . . including Eric Holder’s ATF and Justice Department.

CISPA was also written in broad enough fashion to potentially override every existing privacy law due to a “notwithstanding provision in law” clause that gives companies immunity for sharing your information with government agencies.

That’s why I need you to take action to stop this bill dead in it’s tracks just as soon as possible.

Please call your Representative right now at 202-224-3121 and demand a “NO” vote on H.R. 3523.

Also tell your Representative that you expect a “NO” vote on any other piece of legislation intended to undermine your privacy, especially firearms-related purchase information.

With the consideration and possible vote on H.R. 3523 (CISPA) expected within the next 48 hours, your immediate action is needed — AT ONCE!

So please make your call (202-224-3121) in opposition to H.R. 3523 right now.

Thanks in advance for taking action to protect the personal privacy of gun owners.

For Freedom,
Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

    1. Simply put, in no way does H.R. 3523 infringe on 2nd Amendment rights. Please see below for more information, including a statement from the NRA:

      “Nothing in H.R. 3523, despite the misinformation being spread by some individuals, has any impact on gun ownership by law abiding citizens.” (Jim Baker, Director NRA-ILA, Federal Affairs)
