European Anti-Gun Petition - Act Now

The anti-gun forces in Europe are getting all wound up again trying to justify more gun restrictions beyond what they already have. Their premise is that by making firearms more restricted for law abiding citizens, that will slow down the criminals and terrorists. (Sound familiar?) They have a petition out to gather support for more restrictions. It only takes a couple of minutes  to fill it out, so go fill it out right away. 
The petition closes June 17th., so do it now before you forget. Bloggers, please post on this. Lets make it viral and swamp their contrived survey with common sense. The last thing Europe needs is even more restrictions on firearms.
Thanks to Ray Carter at the Second Amendment Foundation for sending this my way.
 Here's the original email from
Simone Ciucchi – FISAT President -Bologna, Italy:


Dear friends and gun rights activists,
Joining the call of British Shooting Sports Council we ask to IAPCAR and all gun rights association in its organization, to participate to the online survey organized by European Union Commissioner, Cecilia Malmstrom.
The menace to semiautomatic firearms in private hands is IMMINENT, as the online survey maliciously suggests a possible link between private possession of firearms and their us for criminal or terrorist purposes, being nothing else than another attempt to disarm honest citizens for the sake of added “firearms security”.
The questions are utterly misleading.
Question C.2 suggests that the list of prohibited firearms should be extended (it is understood that the Commission is referring to semiautomatic rifles and possibly also to semiautomatic shotguns and handguns).
Question C.4 pursues the mandatory use of locking devices in firearms (imagine the impact if this was made retrospective).
Question C.7 would provide a justification to introduce compulsory mental health tests and suppress the current derogation that allows people under the age of 18 to hunt and sport-shoot if they have parental permission or guidance.
We can expect for sure that the various anti-gun EU associations will take action to orchestrate a deliberate number of answers resulting in a public call for tighter gun control.
Deadline for participation is June 17th 2013.         
This can’t happen and we ask you to take part to the online survey in the following steps:
Please follow the following steps:
  1. Go to:
  2. Choose your language in the icon that is in the upper right part of the screen.
  3. Indicate your country, whether you are an individual or an organization and your name or the name of your organization.
  4. Answer the questions by clicking on option “1” for each one of them. You do not need to answer the optional questions that request additional comments (questions B.4, C.11, D.5 and E.6).
  5. After having answered the questions, as a security measure to avoid computer-generated replies, you will have to type in the numbers and/or letters that will be displayed in your screen and validate them.
  6. Your answers will have been submitted by then. You can view them and/or save them as a PDF.
All of the European associations, especially Swedish ones, can contact the proposer of this survey in the person of European Commissioner Ms. Cecilia Malmstrom which can be contacted at these sites, possibly to explain her that firearms of private honest citizens are not to be confused with the ones of criminals and terrorists:
Swedish citizens in particular can also contact her party, Folkpartiet liberalerna (Liberal People's Party), to let them know what you think, at the following site and email:
While EU citiziens can contact Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (A.L.D.E.):
Asking their respective national parties NOT to support Maelmstrom initiatives, you can find various parties members of ALDE at the following page:
We thank you for your help, immediate action is necessary for the protection of our common gun rights.
Best regards,
Simone Ciucchi – FISAT President
