Your Urgent Action Is Required On Two Federal Bills!

Friday, September 15, 2006

The House of Representatives will soon vote on two critically important NRA-supported bills! 

The bills are:

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. 

H.R. 5005--the “Firearms Corrections and Improvements Act”--will codify pro-gun appropriations riders, roll back restrictions, and correct errors in federal firearm laws.

These bills have passed out of committee and will be considered in the full House in the near future.

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 and H.R. 5005 when they are brought to the House floor!  Additional contact information can be found by visiting www.NRAILA.org, clicking the “Take Action” icon, and then clicking the “Write Your Representatives” icon.

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

Thank you for your continued support as we work to make these legislative reforms, the law of the land!
