Today, lawmakers return to Washington, D.C. from spring break, and as I warned you yesterday, I'm very worried an anti-gun storm is brewing on the horizon.
In fact, that storm could hit this week.
That's because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing increased pressure to hold a vote on Attorney General nominee, Loretta Lynch.
Lynch is President Obama's pick to succeed disgraced anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder, and she's shown no signs she'd reverse Holder or Obama's anti-gun agenda.
Henry, your actions and your petitions have held back this questionable nominee so far.
I hope I can count on your activism again. Will you call your U.S. Senators right away?
*** You can reach Sen. Daniel Sullivan at (202) 224-3004; and,
*** You can reach Sen. Lisa Murkowski at (202) 224-6665.
Urge them to OPPOSE Loretta Lynch for Attorney General.
Your actions right now could set the tone on Capitol Hill for the entire week. That's why I hope you'll make these calls as soon as you get this message.

Dear Fellow Patriot,
Thanks to a groundswell of grassroots opposition from NAGR members and supporters, the confirmation of Barack Obama's handpicked candidate for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, remains in doubt.
But that doesn't mean the fight is over.
In December when I first alerted you to Lynch's impending nomination, insiders on Capitol Hill didn't seem to think she would have difficulty getting confirmed.
Then NAGR's more than four million members and supporters began to take action.
January, February and March passed. Your calls, emails, fax petitions and letters didn't let up.
Last month, after Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell indicated there would be a vote to confirm Lynch, he had to back off because of your grassroots efforts, and the Senate adjourned for Easter without taking a vote.
But our work is far from over.
, Joe Biden sent out an angry directive to left-wing activists imploring them to do whatever must be done to get Lynch confirmed.
When the Senate returns in a little more than a week, expect this fight to heat up again.
Lynch's anti-freedom record is atrocious . . .
During her Capitol Hill confirmation hearings, she refused to answer direct questions about your Second Amendment rights, yet she called anti-gun provisions in the PATRIOT ACT, "constitutional and effective."
She served on an "Advisory Committee" to Eric Holder during his gun-smuggling operation, "Fast & Furious."
And while a U.S. Attorney in New York, she used a process known as civil asset forfeiture to seize private property -- a process that state has used to confiscate firearms from deceased concealed permit holders.
Now isn't the time to let up the heat on Republican Senators urging them to OPPOSE Lynch's nomination.
Don't wait until to take action.
