Reckless Lawsuit Preemption Still Top Legislative Priority

Sunday, July 27, 2003

As we continue to note in our Alerts, one of NRA-ILA`s top legislative priorities in Congress is the passage of a federal law to block reckless lawsuits against the firearm industry. As the U.S. Senate continues its consideration of this legislation, we cannot over-emphasize the need for you to remain actively engaged in your efforts to ensure passage of S. 659—the Senate version of reckless lawsuit preemption. It is critical that you continue to contact your U.S. Senators in support of S. 659 and urge them to preempt predatory, meritless lawsuits designed to wipe out the firearm industry, or impose nationwide gun control "laws" by local judicial fiat. Let your Senators know that it is crucial they cosponsor and support S. 659, and halt the abuse of our courts by anti-gun extremists who are trying to usurp the legislative process with the aid of greedy trial lawyers and activist judges.

With the gun-ban lobby wantonly taking every available opportunity to espouse blatant falsehoods about this bill, it is imperative that you know the facts about S. 659. To this end, NRA-ILA has compiled a list of key informational points for you to use in communicating the truth about this common sense legislation. To access this list, please go to www.NRAILA.org, click on "Legislative Update," and then click "Key Talking Points on S. 659." Members may also call NRA-ILA`s GrassrootsDivision at (800) 392-8683 to obtain a copy.

Finally, please continue to communicate with your U.S. Representative and your Senators, and urge them to oppose current legislation seeking to reauthorize and expand the 1994 Clinton gun ban—H.R. 2038 and S. 1034, respectively. Please remember that for all of the above-mentioned action items, you can find contact information for your elected officials by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org, or you can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121 and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121. Once you have taken this action, please be sure to forward this information to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners, and strongly encourage them to contact their lawmakers as well.
