Maintain Your Proactive Support For S. 397 and H.R. 800

Friday, June 10, 2005

The House Judiciary Committee recently passed H.R. 800 (the House version of the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act," and the companion bill to the Senate's S. 397) by a vote of 22-12 and ALL proposed anti-gun amendments were defeated!   This critically important legislation would protect law-abiding firearm manufacturers from reckless, predatory, and potentially bankrupting lawsuits.

The bill currently has 257 cosponsors in the House, 56 cosponsors in the Senate, and has the full support of President Bush and numerous other groups and associations.

As we continue to emphasize, it is imperative that you 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 your lawmakers know that you consider any votes in support of anti-gun amendments to this legislation as votes against the bill itself.

To access the most up-to-date information on this issue, and to find out if your lawmaker is a cosponsor, please go to the "Help Save America's Firearms Industry" heading at, www.NRAILA.org.  This function will allow you to easily send an e-mail or letter to your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators.  Please forward this link to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners.

For additional information on effectively communicating with your lawmakers, please go to:  http://www.nraila.org/CurrentLegislation/ActionAlerts/Read.aspx?ID=274 (Grassroots Alert, Vol. 12, No. 12).

You may also call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, or your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121.
