There appears to be quite a bit of confusion concerning House Bill 733 which is being called the "Second Amendment Preservation Act."
In answer to many inquiries, HB-733 is NOT an NRA bill and, at this time, we have taken no position on this bill. We have serious concerns about the effect of the bill -- whether the consequences are intended or unintended.
Of primary concern is the effect the bill would have on positive pro-gun legislation that NRA has worked hard to pass in the past -- and hopes to pass in the future. The bill does not differentiate between positive pro-gun legislation and restrictive gun control laws that negatively effect Second Amendment rights

We are continuing to analyze and evaluate the bill but already see some serious problems -- some of which are discussed in the article titled, The 'Second Amendment Preservation Act' raises questions, concerns, by Lee Williams in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
