NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Today the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Spending Bill that contains ATF appropriations that include many pro-industry, pro-Second Amendment riders such as the so-called “Tiahrt Amendment” that protects sensitive law enforcement gun trace data from public disclosure.

The ATF rider also includes the “Rehberg Amendment” that would block ATF from requiring firearms retailers to report “multiple sales” of (AR-platform) modern sporting rifles, a requirement that NSSF is challenging in court (NSSF v Jones).

Urge your representative not only to support the 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Spending Bill (the bill does not have a number) but also to oppose any amendments to strip out any provisions in the ATF rider.

To reach your legislator, call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Thank you for helping NSSF preserve our firearms freedoms.

The only people that should NOT have guns are those in prison, in a mental hospital or illegally in the country. The NSSF or any gun group does not need to make any concession or compromises at all for any reason. In 1994 gun owners kicked the… Read more »
