APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Let The Games Begin!

Friday, May 16, 2003

As we predicted, the anti-gunners in the Senate are prepared to thwart the will of that body`s majority and are hatching a plan to derail S. 659 - the Senate version of reckless lawsuit preemption that currently enjoys the support of 52 cosponsors. The House version of the bill - H.R. 1036 - already passed in that chamber by an overwhelming bipartisan majority. The future of lawsuit preemption in the Senate, however, is far less certain.

Fox News Channel reported on Tuesday (May 13) that the campaign to stymie S. 659 through use of a filibuster is already underway. Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) has claimed, "[we] will do everything we can to stop this...legislation from becoming law." In addition to the filibuster, Reed has promised that the anti-freedom Senate contingent may try to amend S. 659 with a host of gun control proposals, including a gun show ban and mandatory storage language, to name just a couple.

With the fight over this much-needed reform beginning to reach critical mass, it is more important than ever that you continue to contact your U.S. Senators in support of S. 659 and ask them to do everything in their power to prevent any parliamentary trickery to de-rail this common sense reform. You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121 or use our "Write Your Representatives" tool to find contact information. For a list of Senate cosponsors of S. 659, go to the Library of Congress website, at http://thomas.loc.gov.
