|The real battle in the U.S. Senate over reckless lawsuit preemption may soon begin. Congress returns from its Spring District Work Period on Monday, April 28, and with the House having already passed its version on an overwhelming and bipartisan 285 - 140 vote, all eyes are now on the Senate.|
It is crucial that you call both your U.S. Senators and urge them to help bring an end to predatory, meritless lawsuits designed to wipe out the firearm industry. Let your Senators know that it is crucial that they support S. 659, and halt the abuse of our courts by anti-gun extremists who are trying to usurp congressional authority with the aid of greedy trial lawyers and activist judges and juries. Also urge them to support the will of the majority by working to derail the filibuster anti-gun Senators have threatened to launch to defeat S. 659. Anti-gun extremists opposed to this reform are clearly in the minority, and will use whatever means are available to them to support the efforts of their cohorts in the gun-ban lobby.
To contact your U.S. Senators, you can call the U.S. Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121, and they should be able to assist you or you can use our "Write Your Representatives" tool to find contact information. And for a list of Senate cosponsors of S. 659, you can go to the Library of Congress website, at http://thomas.loc.gov.
