Your Action Is Required On The Following Federal Legislation

Friday, July 7, 2006

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 Representatives” feature at www.NRAILA.org.

• H.R. 5092-This bill would improve BATFE’s process for punishing the few FFLs who violate the law, and it would establish guidelines for BATFE investigations.  This bill was drafted in large part to address recent BATFE abuses at Richmond, VA-area gun shows highlighted in hearings before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. 

• H.R. 5005-This measure will codify congressional policies, roll back restrictions, and correct errors in federal firearm laws. 

• 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. 1384-This bill would remove several antiquated and unnecessary restrictions imposed on interstate firearms business since 1968. 

• H.R. 1288/S. 1082-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/S. 3275-Legislation that would allow any person with a valid carry permit or license issued by a state to carry a concealed firearm in any other state if he or she meets certain criteria.  Importantly, the laws of each state governing where concealed firearms may be carried would still apply within its borders.
 
Again, please contact your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and urge them to cosponsor and support these measures.  For additional information on these bills, please visit www.NRAILA.org.
