Early this morning, the House of Representatives rejected the two anti-gun amendments proposed by Representative Dan Shoen. These amendments were aimed at restricting the Second Amendments rights of law-abiding citizens by expanding the list of places where law-abiding gun owners are prohibited from carrying and possessing firearms and requiring background checks for every firearm transfer in the state.
Your NRA-ILA would like to thank everyone who reached out to their state Representative in opposition to Representative Shoen’s egregious amendments. You successfully prevented bad amendments from being attached to a good omnibus package.
