Virginia – -(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, many gun owners received emails notifying them that a large capacity magazine ban amendment was going to be attached to the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act (S.223), which is currently being debated in the U.S. Senate.

A little research however shows that no such amendment currently exists on the list of amendments filed.

The rumor may have started because NJ senator Frank Lautenberg has filed two amendments, but according to the reliable pro-rights blog Snowflakes in Hell, neither of the amendments have anything to do with firearms or their accessories.

Add to this the fact that NRA-ILA, which has a major and respected presence on Capitol Hill, has not issued an alert on the matter and one is left with the feeling that this is a lot of noise about nothing.

Having said all of this, it never hurts to let your elected officials know where you stand on this important issue. We know from a recent Newsweek article that President Obama is set to push some form of restrictions on our freedom within the next two weeks.

This is apparently an effort to appease the gun ban lobby who are mortified that Obama has not used the Tucson shootings to further their agenda.

With this in mind, please call or email Senators Webb and Warner and let them know that you oppose S.32, Senator Lautenberg's magazine ban legislation.
