Contact Your U.S. Senators In Support Of<BR> Pro-Gun Judicial Nominee

Friday, June 6, 2003

Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor (R), recipient of NRA-ILA`s highest award for defense of the Second Amendment, has been nominated for a federal judgeship on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. It is critical that NRA members contact their U.S. Senators immediately to show their strong support for his nomination. Attorney General Pryor is a leading defender of our Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Nationally, he took a very prominent role in fighting the frivolous and predatory municipal lawsuits against the firearms industry. In Alabama, Attorney General Pryor helped write and lobbied for the passage of laws that provide the firearms industry immunity from municipal lawsuits, preempt local gun control ordinances, and repeal the two-day waiting period for handgun purchases. NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox said, "Bill Pryor has proven himself to be a true friend of freedom and a true friend of the Second Amendment. For years, he`s stood up and protected our rights when it`s counted most; now it`s our time to help him."

On Wednesday, June 11, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on Attorney General Pryor`s nomination. We can count on anti-gun senators doing everything they can to defeat Pryor`s nomination as a way to advance their gun ban agenda. That`s why it`s so important that you call your U.S. Senators before Wednesday to encourage them to support Bill Pryor`s nomination. You can reach your U.S. Senators by calling (202) 224-3121, or you can use the "Write Your Representatives" tool for additional contact information.
