There are two things you must do to oppose the new EU Firearms Ban Proposals:
First, write all of your MEP representatives (more information below).
This is a link to a document created by Colin Jenkins and contains contact details of all the MEP’s involved in the committee that is scrutinizing the EU Firearms proposal.
Please use the list carefully to send the committee members relevant and helpful emails that provide answers and information as well as dispelling untruths they may have been told or heard to help them make the decision we want.
This is excellent proactive work, thank you Colin.

The worst terror attack in the United States since 9/11 has become the occasion for another frenzied, poorly informed push for new gun restrictions.
President Obama gave a prime-time address on the terror threat, in which he resolutely re-affirmed the status quo in the campaign against ISIS. Except that he hopes that gun control, one of the signal political and policy failures of our time, will now be deployed to help foil the apocalyptic terror group.
Almost every time there is a mass shooting, there is a rush to push old gun-control chestnuts regardless of their applicability.
The San Bernardino terror couple didn’t buy their guns at a gun show (making the effort to close the so-called gun-show loophole irrelevant); they weren’t on the terrorism watch list (so the proposal to ban people on the list from buying guns wouldn’t have stopped them); and Syed Farook passed a background check when he bought two handguns (rendering calls for universal background checks moot).
