    Bad timing on their part. I've had the scam emails in the past. Never a military one.

    I hope DEVGRU kicks their door in.

    Sickening.

    I've also received a lot of spam email from Dudley and ashley from "National Gun Rights Association" asking for $10-20 donations. The latest is for a bullcrap "Bring home the gun that won the war" talking about 600,000 M4's from Korea and asking for donations to help them blitz the Internet about this "Important issue"

    We didn't win that war, and to use that as a means for tugging on Patriotic heart strings makes me want to use their computer for target practice...

    P.S.

    I wish the NRA wouldn't share my email address. I get a lot of people trying to get money out of me pretending to be affiliated with the NRA, and that never happened until I joined.

    At work a fellow coworker received an e-mail from a suppossed military officer asking for money to buy a satelite phone. I told her that if she sent the money (or the phone) she would be basically supporting terrorism.

    The address he gave was an overseas address, but we all know that if you want to send anything to a military member deployed overseas it goes to an APO/AE address, not to some sandbox in the former soviet union.

    He also would give a unit...sad crap

    Just got another spam (I get them 1-2 a day) from National Association for Gun Rights.

    This one pretending to be Rand Paul speaking on behalf of Dudley. (These people should be prosecuted for fraud)


    ***** Snip of Email *******

    From Rand Paul Rand.Paul@nagr.org <---- Note that Rand Paul apparently uses NAGR.ORG as his SMTP provider.

    Jack,

    I've been fighting President Obama's M1 re-importation ban for some time now and his latest action is outrageous.

    After reading Dudley Brown's email below, I'm as outraged as he is!

    Nothing short of allowing ALL of these historic firearms return home will be acceptable.

    But if I'm going to have success in Congress forcing Obama to respect our American traditions, I'll need help from gun owners like you and gun rights leaders like Dudley.

    Plans like his Internet Blast to Bring Home the Gun that Won the War are exactly the kind of backup I need.

    Dudley has set a goal of raising at least $100,000 on Memorial Day.

    I hope you'll be able to help him reach that goal by chipping in just $10 or $20 today.

    And if you want to know more, Dudley's email below explains everything.

    Sincerely,

    Rand Paul
    U.S. Senator
    ***** END Snip of Email *******

    P.S.
    Search Google for this "Internet Blast" trying to get these precious guns back into our country.

    You'd think for $100,000 they could get this search to show up as more than a single link back to NAGR.ORG.
