U.S. House Passes Appropriations Bill Containing a Number of Pro-Gun General Provisions

Friday, May 30, 2014

We reported earlier this month on the U.S. House Appropriations Committee approving the FY15 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill.  The bill then moved on to the floor of the U.S. House where, on Thursday, May 29, it was passed by a vote of 321-87.  The bill contains a number of pro-gun general provisions, including:

Sec. 215--Prohibits Gun Walking Operations--and stops the Obama Administration from transferring firearms to any individual that is a known or suspected agent of a drug cartel as part of a law enforcement operation. 

Sec. 517--Firearms Export to Canada—Bans the Obama Administration from requiring an export license for small firearms parts, valued at less than $500, for export to Canada.  This continues the rational policy that has been in place for decades that recognizes the many common interests in the shooting sports and hunting communities of the U.S. and Canada.

Sec. 518--Curios & Relics--Prohibits the Obama Administration from arbitrarily denying importation of qualifying and legal curio and relic firearms.  Curios & relics are generally 50 years or older, and many are World War II and Cold War-era firearms.

Sec. 533--Shotgun Importation Protections--Prohibits the Obama Administration from banning the importation of shotguns manufactured abroad.  Many of these shotguns are already legally manufactured and sold in the U.S.

Sec. 538--U.N. Arms Trade Treaty--Stops the Obama Administration from using tax-payer dollars to implement the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, and: 

Sec. 539--Southwest Border Gun Registry--Bans the Obama Administration from requiring records on the sale of more than one rifle or shotgun to law-abiding individuals in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.  The registry scheme highlights Department of Justice (DOJ) hypocrisy on the gun issue.

We will continue to keep you updated as the process moves forward.
