When we last reported on S. 2268, which blocks politically motivated lawsuits that attempt to hold law-abiding gun makers liable for the criminal misuse of their products, 22 Senators had signed on as co-sponsors. However, due in large part to the efforts of NRA members and the pro-gun community over the course of the last two weeks, the number of Senate co-sponsors of S. 2268 has grown to 39.
Our thanks go out to the following U.S. Senators who have recently added their support to this bill: Wayne Allard (R-Co.);Christopher "Kit" Bond (R-Mo.); John Breaux (D-La.); Sam Brownback (R-Kan.); Jim Bunning (R-Ky.); Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-Co.); Pete Domenici (R-N.M.); Charles Grassley (R-Ia.);Orrin Hatch (R-Ut.);Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.); James Inhofe (R-Okla.); Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.); Ben Nelson (D-Neb.); Don Nickles (R-Okla.); Pat Roberts (R-Kan.); and Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.).
As encouraging as this recent progress has been, there is still room for improvement. With that in mind, if you don’t see either of your Senators listed above, be sure to contact them at (202) 224-3121 to urge them to co-sponsor S. 2268!
