Important Hunting and Sportsmen’s Legislation Needs Your Help

Friday, March 2, 2012

On February 29, H.R. 4089, the “Sportsmen's Heritage Act of 2012” was marked up by the U.S. House’s Natural Resources Committee.  This legislation promotes America’s hunting heritage and will positively impact sportsmen throughout the country.  For these reasons, NRA fully supports this bill. 

During mark up, two anti-gun amendments were offered by Congressman Grijalva (D-Ariz.), and both were defeated overwhelmingly (for more information about the amendments click here). 

H.R. 4089 was favorably reported to the full U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 27 - 16.   

NRA would like to thank Rep. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.) for introducing this important legislation, as well as Chairman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) and Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) for bringing this bill up in a timely manner.  NRA would also like to thank all committee members who voted for this legislation, and against both anti-gun amendments.  We expect this bill to be considered on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in the next couple of weeks. 

Please be sure to contact your member of Congress and urge him or her to support this important legislation.  You can find contact information for your U.S. Representative by using the Write Your Representatives tool at www.NRAILA.org.  You may also contact your Representative by phone at (202) 225-3121.
