Senator Webb Stands with Sportsmen Opposes Confirmation

(Columbus) – On Wednesday, the sportsmen’s community came within five votes of stopping the nomination of Cass Sunstein to serve as the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), otherwise known as the “Regulatory Czar.”  Sunstein is an avowed anti hunter and does not believe the second amendment applies to individual gun ownership.

While a confirmation vote took place yesterday, it was a formality after the Senate voted to over-ride a hold placed on the nomination by Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson.  It would have taken 40 votes to prevent the confirmation.  Opponents of Sunstein were only able to earn 35.  For the confirmation vote yesterday, which was in essence a formality, there would have had to be 50 no votes.  Thus, the real vote regarding Sunstein took place Wednesday night.

Oppose Cass Sunstein Appointment

This is the follow-up email to the first email!

Friends,

As promised I am sending the backup information and details concerning the very dangerous nomination of Cass Sunstein as the new Czar of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).

Cass R. Sunstein may not be a household name, but make no mistake, in academic and legal circles he is a rock star. His nomination by President Obama to serve as the head of the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), otherwise known as the “Regulatory Czar”, appears on track and has received a lot of accolades from those who make a living inside “the Beltway” of Washington, DC.

Unfortunately, Sunstein’s record outs him as a rabid animal rightist who has gone so far as to state that animals may deserve the right to sue and, for sportsmen, most chillingly, that “we might ban hunting altogether, at least if it’s sole purpose is human recreation.”

Call to Action

Let’s go into the field this hunting season knowing we made our voices heard!

Stop Cass Sunstein Campaign – Regulatory Czar

Montana Outfitters and Guides Association

This is the email that I received from MOGA

MOGA Members and Friends:

President Obama is poised to appoint another Czar to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).  Obama’s choice for this powerful regulatory position is Cass Sunstein, a vocal anti-hunter and animal rights zealot.

We all need to be extremely concerned with this appointment as Sunstein will have extensive authority to block rules, including those that protect hunting and conservation.

Sunstein has claimed that, “we might ban hunting altogether, at least if it’s sole purpose is human recreation.”

He also supports allowing lawsuits on behalf of animals, a right currently only extended to human beings.

We have been asked to join in this campaign and your support is needed to block Sunstein from being in a position to harm America’s sportsmen.

In the very near future I will be sending you the materials you need to help fight this appointment.  When you receive it please review it carefully and then act quickly to protect our treasured hunting heritage.  We have less than 10 days to be heard on this issue.

Mac
