WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
The March 20 issue of Gun Week reports that the anti-gun rights,
anti-self defense organization Americans for Gun Safety (AGS)
spent over $3 million dollars in the year 2000 just to close the
"gun show loophole" in Washington state, and that they will
conduct a mulitmillion dollar TV, print, and billboard advertising
campaign in 2001. AGS is reportedly only a couple of years old.
Handgun Control, Inc. has reportedly spent millions of dollars in
its propaganda campaign against your right to own and use guns.
Both of these organizations understand the value of propaganda
in swaying public opinion -- and thus voter results. And they are
getting what they want: gun control. Crime Bill of '94, Brady Bill,
Lautenberg Act, etc. etc. etc. etc.
COA is the ONLY organization devoted entirely to conducting a
pro-self defense, pro-gun rights mass media campaign against
the likes of AGS and HCI. Considering its so-far modest
operations budget, COA and its activist supporters has been
amazingly successful in getting our unique pro-self defense,
pro-gun radio and print ads out to the public. Ads that you can
see and hear on our website, www.citizensofamerica.org.
Yet COA has to struggle incessantly to raise funds from gun
owners and civil rights activists. Incredibly enough to its founders,
COA's budget has yet to a approach even a fraction of AGS' or
We ask the gun owners of this country: Why is this?

**** NEW SYSTEM TO REPLACE NICS. Russ Howard and
Brian Puckett (Mr. Puckett is the current president of Citizens of
America) have developed a system (BIDS) to replace the
National Instant Check System for firearms purchases, which
many critics believe is not only intrusive, but is being used to
compile a database of firearm owners.
