Subject: Re: Fw: Vote on gun control today!
There is a bipartisan effort underway to make some modest
and reasonable changes in background checks for gun purchases and I support
them. I am also a very strong supporter of the Second Amendment and the
right to own a gun has been affirmed as constitutional by the Supreme Court. It
is a settled matter as it should be.
Here is what the background check legislation does and
It requires a person purchasing a gun at gun shows or over
the internet to go through the same background check as is done by a licensed
gun shop. This seems only reasonable since it is estimated that up to 40%
of gun sales are done outside of licensed dealers. There are several
groups of people who are prohibited from buying guns under current law. I
believe we should enforce the background checks equally. The prohibited
groups include convicted felons and people who have been determined by a court
to be dangerous to themselves or others. I think
most people would agree that they should be prevented from buying guns.
The bill exempts sales of guns between family members or guns that are loaned
at shooting ranges and the like.
The bill does not set up a gun registry any more than the
current background system does. That would be illegal and it does not
happen now and would not happen under the expanded background check system. I
am opposed to any such registry. Under current law, background checks
done through the FBI must be destroyed in 24 hours. There would be no
change under the new legislation.
When you look at support for the expanded background checks,
you find that more than 75% of NRA members agree we should have them.
Various polls tell us that between 89 and 94% of the American people believe we
should do this.
This is not a radical proposal. It has been developed
by Senators who both have an A rating from the NRA and who are dependable
protectors of the Second Amendment.
Thanks for asking for my comments.
FROM NEWS OF IMPORT 03/25/13:
Arizona: Two Pro-Gun Reform Bills Pass Senate Committee
Today, the Arizona Senate Public Safety Committee approved two NRA-backed
pro-gun reforms. House Bill 2455, which received a "Do Pass"
recommendation with a 4 -1 vote, would prohibit the destruction of seized or
surrendered firearms. House Bill 2326, recommended "Do Pass"
with a 5-1 vote, would protect gun owner privacy. Please contact members of
the Senate Public Safety Committee and thank them for their support.
Since both HB 2455 and HB
2326 will now be sent to the Senate floor for consideration, please contact
your state Senator today and urge him or her to vote for these important
House Bill 2455, introduced by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6),
would require any firearms forfeited to or confiscated by a law enforcement
agency to be sold to a Federal Firearms License (FFL)
holder in exchange for money, new equipment or ammunition. As a result,
collected firearms would maintain their value and their sale to the public
would help recover public funds as budgets are strained.
House Bill 2326, sponsored by state Representative Eddie Farnsworth
(R-12), would provide meaningful protections for gun owners. This measure
restricts the ability of any political subdivision from requiring or retaining
a record in any form, whether permanent or temporary, including a list, log or
database, of any identifying information of a person who owns, possesses, purchases, sells or transfers a firearm. In
other parts of the country, anti-gun media outlets abused their privileges
under the Freedom of Information Act and have jeopardized the safety of
law-abiding citizens by publishing the names and addresses of registered gun
owners. Contrary to their claims, these media elites have not increased
public safety and have instead simply provided a map for criminals to use for
their next burglary and firearm theft. HB 2326
would prevent this from happening in Arizona.

Senate Judiciary Committee to Consider Four Anti-Gun Bills Next Tuesday
The four anti-gun bills heard last week in the
Senate Judiciary Committee have been scheduled for a work
session on Tuesday, April 16, by
this Committee. Using the contact information provided
below, please contact members of the Senate Judiciary
Committee and urge them to oppose these measures and the anti-gun
amendments aimed at penalizing law-abiding citizens:
enforcement says gun restrictions are ineffective: Survey
A national survey of law enforcement shows officers
believe many proposed gun control measures — including bans on assault
weapons — will be ineffective at reducing violent crime and that legal
gun ownership by private citizens would prove a better safeguard.
Virginia: House to Vote on Firearms Preemption Legislation Tomorrow
Tomorrow, April 11, the West Virginia House of Delegates
will hold its third and final reading on the amended version
of Senate Bill 435, sponsored by state Senator Herb Snyder
(D-16). As amended, SB 435 encourages Charleston and three other
cities that currently have and enforce local gun control ordinances to
be consistent and uniform with the rest of the state. This is a
step in the right direction to eliminate the remaining patchwork of
misguided firearms laws that are unfortunately still on the books in
Last Chance to Stop Bill Requiring Background Checks on Legally
Senate Bill 69 passed in
the state House of Representatives earlier this month,
and will be considered for concurrence and final passage by
the state Senate tomorrow. This is your last chance to
stop this anti-gun measure! Introduced by
state senators Will Espero (D-19),
Rosalyn Baker (D-6), Brickwood Galuteria (D-12) and Josh Green (D-3), SB 69
was originally a gun “buyback” bill but has evolved into
a mandatory background check bill on already acquired firearms. Please
contact your state Senator TODAY in opposition to SB 69.
Bills Await Committee Action as Legislative Deadline Approaches

pass committee in their legislative chamber of origin. Currently,
several firearm-related bills await hearings or work sessions.

Senate to Vote on Markell Gun Control
Legislation Next Week
As early as next week, the Delaware Senate could vote on
Senate Bill 16 and House Bill 35. Both of these bills would
discriminate against gun owners by requiring fees, paperwork
and delays as obstacles to exercise a civil right. Senate Bill 16
would impose punitive measures against victims of crime by
requiring a gun owner to report a lost or stolen gun within arbitrary
time limits. House Bill 35 would criminalize private transfers of
firearms between law-abiding citizens and could only be enforced with
firearm registration. Hold your state legislators accountable:
Demand protection for your rights and your Senator’s opposition to ineffective
measures that target law-abiding constituents instead of criminals.
Carolina: Pro-Hunting Bill Referred to Senate Judiciary 1 Committee
Senate Bill 201, introduced by state Senator Shirley
Randleman (R-20), passed in the Senate
Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources Committee yesterday with a
favorable recommendation. S 201, which would allow for the
use of lawfully-possessed suppressors while hunting, has now been
referred to Senate Judiciary 1 Committee.
School Security Reform Bill to be Considered on House Floor This Week
Senate Bill 1, sponsored by state Senator Pete Miller
(R-24), is expected to be considered on the House floor this
week. SB 1 would establish a School Resource Officer (SRO)
program in schools and sets forth their duties and responsibilities.
Sheriffs Continue to Stand in Defense of Your Second Amendment Rights
Continuing their unshakeable stance in defense of your
Second Amendment rights, a majority of Colorado sheriffs have
decided to take the next step and file suit against the outrageous
anti-gun bills recently signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper.
Virginia: Pro-Gun Bills Moving as Legislative Session Winds Down This
Three important pro-gun bills continue to move
closer to becoming law. If passed and enacted, the
following legislation will be of benefit to responsible gun
owners and sportsmen in the Mountain State.
Bill to Ban ALL Lead Ammunition for Hunting to be Heard Next Week
It is deja vu all
over again. Assembly Bill 711, supported by radical
self-proclaimed environmental organizations, is an expanded lead
ammunition ban that was introduced in the state legislature
this year. In August 2012, the California Fish and Game
Commission refused to expand the current lead ammunition ban in the
condor range because a serious scientific inquiry into the actual
source of lead poisoning in condors was again underway!
Unfortunately, this did not make the animal “rights"
activists happy and once again NRA will be opposing Assembly Bill
711. AB 711 is scheduled to be heard in the Assembly
Committee on Water, Parks, and Wildlife on Tuesday, April 16, at 9 a.m.
in State Capitol room 437 (Listen to this hearing). Please call
AND e-mail Committee members and politely urge them to OPPOSE this
egregious bill. Contact information for members of
this Committee is provided below.
Broken background checks won't stop gun violence
Members of Congress should reject the idea that
expanding a broken background check system will make anyone safer. The
American people deserve better than politicians who continue to pursue
failed policy agendas. Americans deserve to be safe in their
communities and to have their Second Amendment rights respected. We can
gun control vote and Democrats' problem
A senior Senate Republican observed today on the anti gun legislation, "It's hard to say what
[Sen. Harry] Reid will even bring up. He could opt for some watered
down nothing burger, I suppose. Hard to say, [but] he's in a
conundrum." That is because without cover of a GOP filibuster,
which now seems unlikely, a whole bunch of vulnerable Senate Democrats
will in fact have to take the votes that they dread and are certain to
be used against them in 2014.

from the National Rifle Association Regarding Toomey-Manchin Background Check Proposal
Fairfax, Va. - Expanding background checks at gun shows
will not prevent the next shooting, will not solve violent crime and
will not keep our kids safe in schools. While the overwhelming
rejection of President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg's
"universal" background check agenda is a positive
development, we have a broken mental health system that is not going to
be fixed with more background checks at gun shows.
