We Need Sportsmen And Gunowners To Contact Their Senators!
Monday, June 23, 2003
Three bills of importance to gun owners and sportsmen appear to be stalled in the Senate. HB 164, sponsored by Rep. Richard Cathcart (R-9), protects Delaware`s shooting ranges from urban encroachment, and HB 160, sponsored by Rep. John Atkins (R-41), allows hunting on Sunday afternoons. Also, HB 178, sponsored by Rep. Nancy Wagner (R-31), establishes a reciprocity system to recognize Right to Carry permits issued in other states. All three of these bills were passed almost unanimously by the House, but are now being buried by the Senate Democratic leadership. Your help is needed to make sure that Senate President Thurman Adams (D-19) gives this legislation a fair hearing. Please contact your Senator and urge him to support these bills. Senate Democrats may be reached at (302) 744-4286, and Senate Republicans may be reached at (302) 744-4048.If you are unsure who you Senator is,you can use the "Write Your Representatives" feature.
