Continue To Urge Passage Of S. 397 In U.S. House

Friday, October 14, 2005

As you know, the passage of S. 397--the  "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act"--by the U.S. Senate represents a great victory and a vitally important first step toward ending the anti-gun lobby's shameless attempts to bankrupt the firearm industry through reckless, predatory lawsuits.  It also represents a crucial step forward for law-abiding firearm manufacturers, retailers, and owners in this country.  But it is important to emphasize that it is just a first step.  We must stay the course.

It is critical that you continue to contact your U.S. Representative and urge him/her to pass S. 397 (as passed by the Senate) in the U.S. House.  It's time to put a stop to these meritless, reckless lawsuits once and for all.

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. Representative at (202) 225-3121.

We can and will achieve our mutual goal of finally enacting this common sense law, but only with your continued assistance.  Please help us finish the job once and for all by contacting your U.S. Representative in Washington and urging him/her to support the  "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act" as passed by the Senate.
