Second Amendment Under Attack in the States

Friday, January 4, 2013

The threats to our rights aren't just at the federal level.  Serious threats in the form of new "assault weapons" and "high capacity" magazine bans, as well as additional, related restrictions have also been proposed at the state and local levels (so far, in Illinois, Colorado, and Vermont, with Delaware and Maryland likely to see legislation in the near future).  Please click here for NRA-ILA's latest information on proposed restrictions by state.

As gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment, we urge you to stay informed (by visiting our website at www.nraila.org) and to be proactive in fighting this battle.  Please contact your state and federal legislators and urge them respect our Second Amendment rights.
