BETRAYED!
(from the National Boarder Patrol Council)

Border Patrol agents Ignacio "Nacho" Ramos and Josť Alonso Compean have been denied bond pending appeal and ordered to report to prison by 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 17, 2006.

This callous action by Judge Kathleen Cardone triggers a crisis of confidence in our judicial system. Imprisoning two innocent Border Patrol agents for defending themselves against an armed drug smuggler sends the clear message that the Bush Administration is more interested in keeping our borders wide open than it is in enforcing the rule of law.
 


The Border Patrol Agents Legal Defense and Relief Fund (not to be confused with the NBPC Legal Defense Fund or Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) Legal Defense Fund) is designed to assist any Border Patrol employees who find themselves in financial distress as a result of an unwarranted criminal, civil and/or administrative action brought against them as result of any act or omission within the scope of their employment. The fund may be used to assist such employees with attorney fees, living expenses, and general financial needs. Because the coverage of the "Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean Relief Fund" was limited to those two agents, it did not qualify as a tax-exempt organization, and therefore donations to that fund were not tax-deductible. All donations that are designated for Agents Ramos and Compean will be used to fund their legal defense and assist their families in their hour of need.

Donations to the fund can be made by check payable to:
"BPA Legal Defense & Relief Fund"

Checks should be mailed to :

Top 10 Anti-Gun Representatives & Senators
Ranked by the National Rifle Association.



Top Ten Anti-Gun Representatives

10. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tex.):
Always prepared to offer anti-gun amendments, whether they're relevant to a bill or not.

9. Diana DeGette (D.-Colo.):
A reliable fixture at press conferences on any anti-gun initiative. Wants to hold gun manufacturers liable for the illegal use of firearms.

8. Mike Castle (R.-Del.):
Consistent sponsor of anti-gun legislation. One of only six House Republicans to vote against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that restricted reckless anti-gun lawsuits.

7. Anthony Weiner (D.-N.Y.):
Promotes New York City gun laws (among the most restrictive in the nation) as a model for the rest of the country.

6. Carolyn McCarthy (D.-N.Y.):
Sponsor of unsuccessful legislation to drastically expand the "assault weapon" ban of 1994-2004 to cover even more guns. Gun-control supporters claimed a crime wave would ensue after the ban's demise, but violent crime instead fell to a 30-year low.

5. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.):
A reliable vote for anti-gun legislation, and poised to put anti-gun bills at the top of the agenda if she becomes Speaker.

4. Jim Moran (D.-Va.):
One of only four representatives who voted against requiring that, in the event that a prospective firearm purchaser is rejected by the national background check system, the government must tell the person why.

3. Zoe Lofgren (D.-Calif.):
Always ready to lead the "Million Moms" on the House floor in favor of any anti-gun legislation, no matter how extreme.

2. Henry Waxman (D.-Calif.):
Like the child who canít understand the meaning of "no," Waxman is the congressman who most frequently turns to the GAO to conduct studies designed to support "gun control" schemes he knows do not have support in Congress.

1. John Conyers (D.-Mich.):
The only current House member who voted for the Gun Control Act of 1968, has been a vocal opponent of 2nd Amendment rights ever since.


Top 10 Anti-Gun Senators

10. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio)
Consistently the only Republican to speak in favor of anti-2nd Amendment legislation on the Senate floor.

9. Jack Reed (D.-R.I.)
The most vocal opponent on the Senate floor of congressional legislation to prevent lawsuits against firearms manufacturers based on the actions of criminals.

8. John Kerry (D.-Mass.)
Accepted a shotgun as a campaign gift from union officials, even though it would have been banned under a bill he cosponsored.

7. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D.-N.Y.)
Though just in her first term as an elected official, she campaigned for gun control while First Lady, advocating gun owner licensing, handgun registration and the retention by the federal government of records on lawful purchasers of firearms.

6. Frank Lautenberg (D.-N.J.)
Despite government studies showing that fewer than 1% of criminals get their guns from gun shows, Lautenberg sponsored legislation to run gun shows out of business.

5. Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.)
Sponsor of the much-vaunted assault-weapon ban of 1994-2004. Despite the ban's having been found to have been misdirected and irrelevant to crime, Feinstein said she wished for a stronger law, one that would say, "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn [your firearms] all in." Feinstein carried a handgun for her own protection in California.

4. Barbara Boxer (D.-Calif.)
Sponsor of bills to ban compact handguns, such as those commonly carried for protection, by making the legality of their manufacture in the U.S. contingent upon the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' (BATFE) regulation permitting the same type of firearm to be imported. BATFE uses regulatory authority over firearms importation arbitrarily and, some say, illegally. Boxer hoped the BATFE would do the same with U.S.-made firearms.

3. Ted Kennedy (D.-Mass.)
A generation ago, this liberal lion sponsored legislation to ban and otherwise restrict handguns. He hasnít let up a bit since.

2. Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.)
Minority whip is top anti-gun activist in his partyís Senate leadership and a reliable activist for anti-gun legislation in his own right.

1. Charles Schumer (D.-N.Y.)
Sponsor of legislation to ban firearms as "assault weapons," to ban hunting, recreational, practice and defensive ammunition as "armor piercing," and to impose a waiting period on handgun sales. The member of Congress who most seeks publicity for himself on gun-control issues.

In Their Own Words - Anti-Gun Supporters Of Lawsuits Against The Firearms Industry


"Second Amendment rights? Boolsheet! . . . We cominí after Ďem; we are a bad dream for the gun industry.
--Trial attorney Wendell Gauthier
The Weekly Standard, Feb. 1, 1999

"If the Court of Appeals disagrees with me or somebody else disagrees with my rulings, it doesn't bother me. After almost 33 years, I donít feel I have to justify myself to anybody but myself."
-- Judge Jack Weinstein after the Hamilton v. Accu-Tek trial's end.
New York Magazine, April 5, 1999

"You donít need a legislative majority to file a lawsuit."
-- Trial attorney Elisa Barnes
Wall Street Journal, Oct. 21, 1999

"[I]t is imperative to steer the argument about guns away from the problematic area of criminal use, with its inconvenient focus on criminals. . . ."
--Reporter Peter Boyer describing the belief of Brady Campaign attorney Dennis Henigan
The New Yorker, May 17, 1999

"The legal fees alone are enough to bankrupt the industry. The pressure is going to be on."
--Trial attorney John Coale
Washington Post, March 18, 2000

"You just stir things up. I mean look, the gun issueís all over the place now. . . . We got bills flying all over Congress. . . . Eventually, the industry has to see us as the only reasonable people in town. It ainít going to be reasonable up on that Hill. And we are reasonable (ha-ha-ha). Thatís what it comes down to."
--Trial attorney John Coale
Washington Post, March 18, 2000

"We have the capacity to squeeze manufacturers like a pincer and hurt them in the marketplace."
--New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer
Dayton Daily News, March 30, 2000

"Fed up with trying to move legislation, the [Clinton] White House is launching lawsuits to succeed where legislation failed. The strategy may work, but at the cost of making our frail democracy even weaker. . . . This is faux legislation which sacrifices democracy to the discretion of administration officials operating in secrecy"
--Robert Reich, former Clinton Administration Secretary of Labor
American Prospect, Jan. 17, 2002
