Senate Passed Legislation (SB 428) Encouraging Junk Lawsuits Against the Firearms Industry Over Weekend
IT IS CRICIAL THAT YOU CONTACT YOUR STATE SENATORS BEFORE NOON TODAY and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 427 by Sen. Joseph Cervantes (D-Las Cruces), legislation which imposes a 14-day waiting period on firearm purchases. This measure will add nothing to the existing FBI background check process and will only delay your ability to exercise your Second Amendment right to defend yourself, your family and your property. This makes for the longest firearms purchase waiting period in the entire country! It also applies when you go to a federal firearms licensed dealer (FFL) to be transferred a firearm you ordered.

Please contact your State Senators and urge them to OPPOSE SB 427!
On Friday, the Senate approved Senate Bill 428 by Sen. Joseph Cervantes (D-Las Cruces) on a 24-15 vote. SB 428 creates a hostile climate for lawful firearm-related industries and transactions by facilitating an increasing amount of litigation and claims, with vastly increased liability exposure and civil penalties, for even minor suspected violations of the terms of an FFL or the law as the basis for Unfair Trade Practices Act proceedings.
