Your Urgent Action Is Required On BATFE Reform Bill!!!

Friday, September 8, 2006

The House of Representatives will soon vote on a critically important NRA-supported bill! 

H.R. 5092--the “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) Modernization and Reform Act of 2006”--will improve BATFE’s process for punishing the few FFLs who violate the law, and will establish guidelines for BATFE investigations.  This bill was drafted in large part to address recent, blatant 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.  This legislation has passed out of committee and will be voted on in the full House during the week of September 18. 

It is imperative that you contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to VOTE FOR H.R. 5092 when it is brought to the House floor!  Additional contact information can be found using the “Write Your Representatives” feature at www.NRAILA.org.

Please be sure to contact your Representative, and urge your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same!
