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 doesn't do.


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.

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 measures.

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.

Please feel free to forward this SECOND AMENDMENT NEWS to those who care...

Oregon: 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:


Law 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.


West 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 certain localities.


Hawaii: Last Chance to Stop Bill Requiring Background Checks on Legally Possessed Firearms

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.


Nevada: Bills Await Committee Action as Legislative Deadline Approaches

This Friday, April 12, marks the deadline for bills to pass committee in their legislative chamber of origin.  Currently, several firearm-related bills await hearings or work sessions.  Your action is needed now to advance Assembly Bills 143 and 340, and to stop Senate Bill 221.  You can also submit your opinion on Nevada legislation by clicking here and selecting the appropriate bill number.


Delaware: 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.  


North 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.


Indiana: 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.


Colorado: 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.  


West Virginia: Pro-Gun Bills Moving as Legislative Session Winds Down This Week

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.


California: 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.


Cox: 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 achieve both.


The 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.


NRA plans to challenge Maryland gun law

National Rifle Association President David Keene said Tuesday the organization plans to challenge the constitutionality of Maryland's newly passed gun law.Keene said the group will "absolutely" go to the courts during in an interview with Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP.


Rhode Island: Lawmakers seek semi-auto ban

Rhode Island would ban the sale of semi automatic assault weapons and high capacity magazines under legislation proposed Tuesday by the governor, attorney general and top lawmakers in response to the December school shooting in neighboring Connecticut.


Missouri: Senate panel considers anti-privacy gun control measure

With less than six weeks left in the annual session, a gun control bill has received its first hearing by a Missouri legislative committee.The Senate General Laws heard testimony Tuesday on a bill requiring parents to notify their child's school if they own a firearm.


Statement 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.
