While Bloomberg is working to erode our rights, NRA is concentrating on strengthening them.  There are a number of pro-gun bills pending in Congress that require your action. Please review these legislative initiatives and be sure to contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, and urge him or her to cosponsor and support these measures. Additional contact information can be found using the "Write Your Reps" feature at www.NRAILA.org.

•S. 1082/H.R. 1288-Legislation to repeal the draconian D.C. gun ban and restore the right of lawful District residents to own firearms to defend themselves and their families.

• H.R. 4547-Federal legislation requiring recognition of out-of-state Right-to-Carry permits.

• H.R. 5013/S. 2599-Legislation to prohibit the confiscation of lawfully owned firearms during states of emergency. Would guarantee legal recourse for victims of illegal gun seizures.

• H.R. 5092-This bill would improve BATFE’s process for punishing FFLs and establish guidelines for BATFE investigations.
