Subject: ATTN: CTD, TEAMSTERS AND UAW MEMBERS!!!!!!!!!
I'm asking for your help CTD, could you please pin this to the top of your threads? All union members, SHARE THIS, copy it, print it, change it to fit for you, mail it to your state officials and let them know we are pressuring our unions to take a stand! Just help us get it out their. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 1 Cover Letter of Intent--------------------- The intent of this letter is to bring to attention the high level of concern amongst some of our members in regards to the current attacks on our US Constitution and individual liberties by the anti-gun lobby. As patriotic Union Members of this nations greatest Unions we feel that the Teamster & UAW Union should not be silent on this issue. We feel that it brings negative exposure to our Unions being since we have assisted in getting a few of the elected officials voted into office that may currently be siding with the anti-2nd Amendment lobby. We need to let our elected officials know that the Teamster/UAW Union opposes any and all attacks on The United States Constitution and our individual liberties and freedom. ____________________________________________ _______________________ Page 2 Dear Mr. James P. Hoffa, General President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (202) 624-6800 Dear Mr. Bob King, president Of United Auto Workers UAW Solidarity House | 8000 East Jefferson Avenue Detroit, Michigan 48214 | p. (313) 926-5000 I am writing you in regards to the current situation that we all as patriotic union members are facing in regards to the current political attacks by the anti-gun lobby on our 2nd Amendment rights. After a multitude of conversations amongst concerned Union brothers and sisters, we felt that it was time for our Union leaders to take a strong stance on this unbelievably important issue. It is of great concern that the Teamster/UAW Union and our members may have not knowingly supported a few of our elected officials that are currently attacking our 2nd Amendment rights and civil liberties. This should concern not only the Teamster & UAW Brotherhood, but any and all patriotic Americans. We strongly feel that in supporting any elected official that is partaking with the anti-gun lobby and any anti-2nd Amendment lobby could easily jeopardize future political elections on state and federal levels. We feel that we as voters and as Union members, may be forced to vote only for elected officials that can guarantee us as voters and patrons that they will uphold our US Constitution and protect our liberty and freedom regardless of any other political views. We feel that our Union leaders should encourage the elected officials that many of us have helped get elected to NOT support and to only oppose any and all types of new anti-gun legislation that is clearly a infringement upon the US Constitution. We feel that our fellow countrymen, union and non-union alike, should know that the Teamster & UAW Union supports the US Constitution and objects to any infringement upon our liberty and freedom. We the Teamsters/UAW should not be silent on this very important issue. Speaking in behalf of many Teamster & UAW brothers and sisters that I write this letter for, I assure you that we are strong and very loyal members. But we are also strong loyal Americans and supporters of the United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights that many of us have served to protect. Sincerely, Concerned Kansas City Local 41 Teamster members & Kansas city local 249 UAW members.

ancona77 - who are you kidding? Your Unions collect millions of dollars from the "brotherhood" and then funnel most of it into the coffers of  the Democratic Party, who's radical progressive agenda has been known for decades, and now that they're getting what they paid for, worked for, demanded, lobbied for and supported, they panic? Gimme a break.

Your Unions voted for economic stagnation, high unemployment, underemployment and 29 hour workweeks. They voted in favor of higher prices for gas, food and energy. They voted for higher taxes. They voted for the destruction of the best healthcare in the solar system. They voted for amnesty for illegals, and they demanded endless free lunch entitlements. They voted for unAmerican nonsense like card-check at the same time they claim to want individual liberty and freedom. AND YES, UNIONS VOTED FOR GUN CONTROL - THE MOST EGREGIOUS, COMPLETE, RADICAL ALL-ENCOMPASSING GUN CONTROL IMAGINABLE. They did that by knowingly and deliberately supporting and voting for a candidate and a Party known to have such goals. They're going to get everything they voted for. And I hope it hurts the Unions, and hurts them bad. They need to suffer, and suffer hard for the deal they made with the Devil -choosing to be Democrats instead of Americans.
 
When the Unions publicly and with sorrowful contrition renounce the Democratic Party and every plank of its platform, when the Unions apologize to the nation for their historical connection with socialist and communist parties, return the awards recently given AFL-CIO leaders by the Communist Party USA, and elect patriotic capitalist leadership, when they bury Republican candidates under millions and millions of dollars, then and only then will they have any credibility standing up for the Constitution they have tried so hard for so long to subvert.

Horselips, I'm well aware of all that. Let me tell you though, I didn't get a say in all that. Just because I work union job doesn't mean I share the unions views. So to all the other people out their that are in my boat or want change boats can get on board and help. Now is not the time to worry where they unions went wrong, now is the time to get as many people as we can to help us. Personally my bill of rights is more important than a union job and feel without a bill of rights we may not have a union at all. So are you going to complain to me about things beyond my control or help me get this out their as much as possible? I know a lot of union members who feel like I do and this is why we as members want to make it clear we do not stand for this! I think if we members as a whole could put the pressure on and get the unions to make a stance it may make some of these politicians think about how they vote and where their supports going to come from next election. Here in Missouri I know the unions were a big reason senator Claire mcaskill was elected. It's just another avenue of approach for saving our 2 amendment and a page we should both be on.

ancona77 my friend, I'd do anything I could to help you. But please, when you canvass your union brothers, remind them of their American heritage as armed revolutionaries, and show them who their true enemies are - the totalitarian progressive fascists their leadership has carelessly endorsed. Good luck and Godspeed.

We are. Our local is behind us on this and has said they will bring it up to the international along with many of our members mailing these letters to our locals and the IBT. Several hundred of these letters have also been going out with some of the drivers to take to other locations on their routes too. Their are democratic and liberal gun owners as well and attacks on our 2 amendment affect every American regardless of political affiliations. I hope we can wake some people up and they will come around to seeing what's most important.
