House Bill 2414, which seeks to ban certain semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, as well as .50 caliber rifles commonly used for hunting, could be brought up for a vote on the House floor as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, January 11.
HB 2414, originally introduced in February of 2005, has gone through a number of revisions in an effort to attract lawmakers who have mixed voting records on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Minor technical revisions have been made to give the appearance of "watering down" the bill, but the primary legislative goal of banning the future manufacture and transfer of current firearms remains unchanged.
Please contact your State Representative immediately and ask him or her to oppose this latest version of HB 2414!
