Even though proponents made attempts to revive the "Lost or Stolen" firearms legislation after last Friday's 79-66 defeat in the House of Representatives, law-abiding gun owners prevailed when lawmakers refused to reconsider the legislation before adjourning the legislative session at midnight on Wednesday.
The "Lost or Stolen" firearms legislation sought to make it a crime to fail to report the loss or theft of a firearm within 72 hours from when you “knew or should have known” of the loss or theft and included language subjecting gun owners to criminal investigation.
The anti-gunners have promised they will bring this legislation back next year for the fourth year in a row, so it is important when talking to your lawmakers during this campaign season you continue to urge them to oppose such legislation when they meet in 2007.
