URGENT – Call Your Senators Now!
Today, starting at 4 p.m., the U.S. Senate will be voting on several measures that would affect the firearms and ammunition industry. Please call your senators NOW and tell them to vote with the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s position on today’s amendments. Our positions are:
OPPOSE Manchin-Toomey amendment #715; DEFEATED DEFEATED DEFEATED
The Manchin-Toomey amendment would expand background checks, unfairly prioritize background checks at gun shows over checks at storefront retailers and expose retailers to product liability and record-keeping issues when processing private party transfers.
SUPPORT Grassley_Cruz substitute amendment;
The Grassley amendment offers real solutions by Fixing NICS and improving current law, without an expansion of background checks that would punish retailers and infringe on the Second Amendment.
SUPPORT Cornyn amendment #719
The Cornyn amendment would guarantee the rights of gun owners to carry concealed firearms across state lines and within other states that also have conceal-carry laws.
OPPOSE Feinstein amendment #711
The Feinstein amendment would bring back an expanded ban on so-called “assault weapons.” History shows that banning firearms and imposing arbitrary limits on the size of magazines will not reduce crime.
SUPPORT Burr amendment #720
The Burr amendment would require a judicial authority to determine that an individual poses a danger to themselves or others before VA may send their names to be listed in the FBI’s NICS as a prohibited person.
OPPOSE Lautenberg-Blumenthal amendment #714
The Lautenberg-Blumenthal amendment would impose an arbritrary 10 round limit on ammunition magazine capacity. The 1994 Assault Weapons Ban banned magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and did nothing to curb gun violence.
SUPPORT Barrasso amendment #717
The Barrasso amendment would help protect the privacy of law-abiding gun owners by withholding federal funds from any state or local government that releases private gun ownership data, outside of criminal investigations.
Now is the time to call your U.S. senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them to support your Second Amendment rights and jobs in your state!
