APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

NRA Troops Rally In Houston To Save Firearm Industry

Friday, April 15, 2005

This morning, a Texas-sized crowd convened at NRA-ILA's Grassroots Workshop in Houston, Tex., to further our efforts to pass S. 397/H.R. 800, as well as to advance NRA-ILA's overall legislative agenda.

The event was kicked off by NRA's national officers - Kayne Robinson (President), Sandra Froman (First Vice President), John Sigler (Second Vice President), Wayne LaPierre (Executive Vice President), and Chris Cox (NRA-ILA Executive Director).  One after the other, NRA's officers thanked the volunteers for their dedication and hard work and implored them to continue their grassroots efforts to pass legislation to halt reckless lawsuits against the gun industry.

While most of those in attendance are already doing their fair share in support of ILA's legislative agenda, NRA-ILA's Grassroots staff provided additional information and training to bolster their existing efforts and to ensure they act as our ambassadors throughout the pro-gun community encouraging other Second Amendment supporters to actively engage themselves in these important battles.  For additional information on the topics and strategies discussed at this Workshop, please go to: http://www.nraila.org/CurrentLegislation/ActionAlerts/Read.aspx?ID=274(Grassroots Alert, Vol. 12, No. 12). 

It is imperative that you continue to contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative and ask them to cosponsor and support S.397 and H.R. 800 - without any anti-gun amendments - and put a halt to these reckless lawsuits once and for all. Again, please be sure to let them know that you consider any votes in support of anti-gun amendments to this legislation as votes against the bill itself.
