ALERT from the NSSF

"Legislation (HR 45 - "Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act") sponsored by U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) would mandate numerous gun-control measures if passed. The bill specifically calls for all handgun owners to submit to the federal government a formal application including: photo identification, fingerprints, medical and mental health records and a completed written firearm safety examination. Applicants would also be forced to pay a fee to the federal government. NSSF is vigorously opposing this legislation and is monitoring the bill closely. Please consider contacting your representative and urging him or her to oppose this dangerous bill."

The NSSF has a page HERE where you can voice your opposition.

Don't forget, you can modify the prepared statement and add your own thoughts and feelings to it!

Make sure you get in there and voice your opinion!
It doesn't take but a few seconds!!!!!!!

Don't make me get the gator...

Actually, I wouldn't worry about this bill too much. It's a refile. I don't know why NSSF would try to drum up huge opposition for it, not that I think any gun owner should roll over for it. I just think that considering it's a refile, and, last time I checked, had fewer sponsors this year than previous years, I don't think it's time for panic yet.

It never hurts to re-file our opposition each year as we may win over even more people to our side. I have sent in mine this time as well Albert!
