RECKLESS LAWSUIT PREEMPTION SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY VOTE!

H.R. 1036, the NRA-backed reckless lawsuit preemption legislation, has been scheduled for a vote this Wednesday, April 9 by the full U.S. House of Representatives. This critical reform seeks to put an end to the efforts of anti-gun extremists to drive law-abiding gun manufacturers into bankruptcy with their tactic of filing endless predatory lawsuits that have no merit. H.R 1036 currently has 251 cosponsors, more than a majority of U.S. Representatives, so the chance of it passing is strong. However, we can expect anti-gun lawmakers to do everything possible to derail this legislation, including offering amendments that would attempt to weaken or gut this measure.

Please be sure to call your U.S. Representative TODAY and urge him to support H.R. 1036 in its current form, and to oppose any amendments that would weaken or gut this critical legislative reform.
