Lawsuit Bill At Critical Juncture

Saturday, June 21, 2003

Continuing debate over S. 659-the Senate bill to prohibit reckless lawsuits-means that it is more important than ever that you continue to contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to do everything in their power to ensure that this common sense bill is approved. As we`ve noted in past Alerts, the anti-gunners will do all that they can to defeat this critical piece of legislation, including launching a filibuster. This week, we got another vote closer to the 60 votes needed to defeat the filibuster, when Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) signed on as yet another co-sponsor to S. 659. Those of you in Maine should contact Sen. Snowe to thank her for her co-sponsorship of S. 659. She can be reached at (202) 224-5344. You may also use the "Write Your Representatives" tool to e-mail Sen. Snowe. You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121. You may also use the "Write Your Representatives" tool for more contact information.

Also, please continue to contact your U.S. Representative in opposition to H.R. 2038 and your U.S. Senators in opposition to S. 1034 (bills seeking to expand the 1994 Clinton gun ban). You can call your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121. You may also use the "Write Your Representatives" tool for additional contact information. Be sure to encourage your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to contact their lawmakers as well!
