Please Contact Your State Senator!
On Tuesday, June 14, NRA supported Assembly Bill 56 passed out of the State Assembly by a vote of 65 to 34. Also known as the Reckless Lawsuit Preemption Bill, AB 56 may receive a hearing in the Senate as early as next week.
This critical legislation protects firearms related businesses and organizations from reckless lawsuits intended to hold them liable for the criminal or negligent acts of others over whom they have no control. Anti-gun forces have attempted to use these lawsuits in order to bankrupt firearms businesses and to seek regulations and prohibitions through activist courts that they have been unable to enact through the State Legislature and Congress.
With the passage of AB 56, Wisconsin will become the 34th state to have enacted this critical protection of our firearms heritage. It is essential that you call your State Senator as soon as possible and ask him or her to strongly support AB 56. You can reach the Wisconsin State Senate at (608) 266-2517.
