On Monday, debate will resume on S. 1805, the bill to halt reckless lawsuits against the gun industry. At that time, the anti-gunners will offer amendments to re-authorize the Clinton gun ban and shut down gun shows.
NRA-ILA stands committed to enacting into law a "clean" lawsuit bill (without any anti-gun amendments). And, as we have from Day One, we will continue to vigorously oppose any anti-gun amendments to S. 1805, specifically, reauthorization of the 1994 Clinton gun ban in any way, shape, or form, and imposing restrictions on gun shows. It is anticipated that these amendments will be debated and voted on beginning Monday.
Please continue to contact your U.S. Senators, beginning Monday morning, at (202) 224-3121 and urge them to support S. 1805 without any anti-gun "poison pill" amendments. ILA`s Grassroots staff is ready to assist you, so please call them at (800) 392-8683. Or visit ILA`s website at www.NRAILA.org for additional information on these issues and to utilize the "Write Your Representatives" feature that will allow you to identify and contact your U.S. Senators.
Time is of the essence on these matters. We know you?ve been doing your part to communicate these messages to your U.S. Senators, but with a vote imminent early next week, you must do so again, starting on Monday, and urge your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same.
