Two NRA-supported shooting range protection bills—HB 112, sponsored by Rep. Larry Larranaga (R-27), and SB 275, sponsored by Sen. Bill Griego (D-39)—have passed the House Government and Urban Affairs and Senate Conservation Committees, respectively. HB 112 now moves to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration next week, and SB 275 will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee, also next week. Please call your State Representative at (505) 986-4751, and your State Senator at (505) 986-4714, and urge them to support HB 112 and SB 275.
TELL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO OPPOSE “UNIVERSAL” BACKGROUND CHECK BILLS
Recently two bills were introduced in Congress to impose so-called "universal" background checks. The bills,H.R. 8andS. 42, are being misleadingly described as simply requiring background checks on all sales of firearms, but this is just a small part of what these overbroad pieces of legislation would do.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
