Call Heritage Foundation... tell them Bill Owens is a traitor!
Wednesday, January 26, 2000 -- The Heritage Foundation, a Washington D.C. based think tank that claims to be active on conservative ideals, is hosting Colorado Governor Bill Owens for a discussion on "A year after Columbine: How do we heal a wounded culture?"
The announcement makes Gov. Owens look like a friend of liberty -- the liberty bell is the foundations' logo -- by saying that after Columbine "...liberals screamed for stricter gun control and more metal detectors. Others, like Governor Bill Owens, looked deeper and saw the breakdown of the American family that started in the '60's as the more probable cause."
Either the Heritage Foundation -- often called the "Heretic Foundation" -- is ignorant, or this is a bold-faced lie. As you all know, Gov. Bill "Gun Control" Owens has joined forces with the radical anti-gun crowd to offer a package of gun controls in the wake of Columbine. He's even vowed to support ballot initiatives offered by left-wing organizations dedicated to the confiscation of all firearms.
Owens' strategy is obvious, but his comments to the Denver Post are even more clear: "What are they going to do, vote Democrat?" Owens clearly takes the gun vote for granted, which has led many pro-gun leaders to call him "One Term Owens."
What you can do: Call the Heritage Foundation today at 1-800-544-4843 (then press 1 to skip the menus and ask to be transferred to events) or 202-546-4400, and tell them to cancel this event with Governor Gun Control. Let them know that Gov. Owens is NOT a friend of liberty, and has teamed up with the anti-gun groups in Colorado to pass restrictions on our freedoms.
