U.S. House of Representatives to vote on "The Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act" ( H.R. 5013) Today!

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

UPDATE:  U.S. House of Representatives Overwhelmingly Passes "The Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act" (H.R. 5013)

Call Your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121 Immediately!

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 5013 “The Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act.” Sponsored by U.S. Representative Bobby Jindal (R-La.), this NRA-supported legislation would amend federal emergency statute laws to prohibit federal, state, and local authorities from confiscating lawfully-owned firearms during states of emergency.

A similar, though temporary, measure offered by Senator David Vitter (R-La.) overwhelmingly passed (84-16) the U. S. Senate on July 13 as an amendment to the Homeland Security appropriations bill (H.R. 5441).

As you know, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, various reports indicate that law enforcement agencies from the federal government and several states confiscated guns from law-abiding New Orleans residents. Following the Hurricane and the resulting gun confiscations, NRA filed suit in federal court and won a temporary restraining order ending the illegal gun confiscations.

Enactment into law of the “Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act of 2006” is our top priority. 

Please immediately contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to support and vote for H.R. 5013. You can reach your Representative at (202) 225-3121.

Please call now!
