NRA-ILA Website Features New "Reckless Lawsuits" Feature

Friday, February 4, 2005

One of NRA-ILA`s top legislative priorities in Congress this year will once again be the passage of a "clean" federal law to block reckless lawsuits against the firearm industry. The "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act" passed in the House in 2003, and had majority support in the U.S. Senate (and is supported by President Bush), but was torpedoed last year by anti-gun zealots, including former Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), who helped his fellow anti-gun Senators attach a number of anti-gun amendments to the underlying measure.

We can`t over-emphasize the need to take action in support of this critically important measure, and continue to ask you to please contact your U.S. Senators in support of legislation to halt these reckless lawsuits, and defeat any "poison pill" anti-gun amendments.

When formulating your plan of action, timely and accurate information is indispensable. To ensure that you have fast and easy access to the most up-to-date and useful information possible, NRA-ILA recently added a new feature to the home page of our website--www.NRAILA.org--titled: "Stop Reckless Lawsuits Against the Firearm Industry."

The new function will allow you to easily send an e-mail or letter to your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators. To access the link, please go to the "Stop Reckless Lawsuits Against the Firearm Industry" heading at www.NRAILA.org and click the "Take Action" button.

Please be sure to visit this site often for the latest information and action items on this critically important issue, and please forward this link to your family, friends and fellow firearm owners.
