Take Action America-HR4472 Child Safety Act of 2005

Please Check UPDATE BELOW!!!!

Write to your elected officials today to get the "Children's Safety Act" passed.
Child Safety Act HR 4472 needs desperately to be passed. This week, Erin Runnion (mother of Samantha), Mark Lunsford (father of Jessica) Marc Klass (father of Polly) and founder of Beyond Missing and others are in Washington, D.C. pushing this bill to be passed. Mark Lunsford said “It is a tough piece of legislation to protect our children and give states the minimum guidelines of what to do.” Marc Klass followed with stating there are 72 million children in the U.S. under the age 18 years old. “DEMAND Absolutely DEMAND U.S. Senators to get behind this.” Another quote from Mr. Klass “Everyday that this is not passed, another child’s life is lost to a predator….Remember that, Mr. and Mrs. America.” So, I will make it easy for you, if you press this link it takes you to a page to easily write your representatives. House of Representatives-Email Page and U.S. Senate with their Email Addresses .You can also find these links in my sidebar and feel free to write them as much as you desire. Keep an eye on them and what they are doing.
ACTION MUST BE NOW, it may be JULY if not taken care of now and passed. Thanks to Liberals HR 3132 was lost!! This should NOT be a partisan issue to protect our children. Recently a rundown of politicians for and against tougher laws to protect children found approx. 80% were Liberals that were against these laws. Don’t forget the ACLU not wanting these laws on the books either. Shocking and Stunning that this many law makers are siding with the predators and criminals, in my opinion, I don’t get it, please someone tell me WHY??????
Watch Out for Law Makers (should be a LAW) in my opinion as well!!
Haven’t felt well lately, but a couple days ago I researched and read what bills have been introduced to the U.S. House of Representatives-Committee on the Judiciary Click Link to Legislation and Oversight as well as Library of Congress . Check out Current Activity on the right side of the page, you may be shocked at what our elected officials are introducing as Bills and what they are up to. I feel our Representatives and Senators need to be held accountable and watched like OFFENDERS too!! - Too bad we do not have a watchdog system for easy tracking to their behavior, statements and favorite lobbyist.
Children's Safety and Violent Crime Reduction Act of 2005 (Introduced in House) HR 4472
We Won't Give Up On The Children's Safety Act
2/28/2006
John Walsh from America’s Most Wanted
"Back in September, The Children's Safety Act --H.R. 3132-- passed the House, but not the Senate. Although the bill had bipartisan support, an unrelated hate crimes amendement that the Senate wanted to add stopped the bill in its tracks. In response, Congressman Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc., introduced The Children's Safety and Violent Crime Reduction Act of 2005, or H.R. 4472 last December." Full Story Click Here
A few nights ago on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill and child advocate Wendy Murphy discussed the progress on Jessica’s Law and the states that are getting on board as well as the ones that are headed in the wrong direction. I encourage you to press this link and see where your state stands Map of States-Color Coded-Press on State to Write the Governor (easy process: pre-written letter is present, fill in the few blanks and press send maybe one minute of your time). I have featured this map several times in the past, but I ask you again, please keep sending the emails to your governors.
Last night on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill’s guest was Steve Rodell founder of a free service Family Watchdog or http://www.watchdog.us/ . I would suggest saving this link in your favorites or placing it in your sidebar. This morning I typed my zip code in and found 173 Sex Offenders in the upper part of my county that is not too far away from my home. This site shows where they live, work, location of schools, etc. unbelievable this free site and what valuable information it provides. IMPORTANT SIX (6) States will not & do not participate: VT, PA, RI, SD, OR, NV

PLEASE, I ASK PLEASE TO WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVES and SENATORS TO PASS HR4472.
UPDATE:
BREAKING NEWS:Mark was in D.C. with John Walsh of America's Most Wanted and they are now pushing for S. 4472 by Congressman Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc., introduced as The Children's Safety and Violent Crime Reduction Act of 2005 in December of last year.
The HR3132/S1086 version of the Child Safety Act was stopped in its tracks due to an unrelated hate crimes amendment that Sen. Kennedy added. Source-Jessica Lunsford’s Foundation Site
I plan to change the time stamp on this message and post below this for a short while, please read the Update Above. If I would have read about Sen. Kennedy prior to this, it would have definitely been added before now.
