Newtown, CT -( In a very welcome development, NSSF has received word that the U.S. Senate will take up the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act, S. 2363, next week. We need your help.

The most significant such package of legislation in a generation, S.2363, protects the use of traditional ammunition, allows more flexibility for federal funds to be used to build and maintain ranges on public lands and ensures access to federal lands for hunting, shooting and other outdoor activities. But, make no mistake, anti-hunting and extremist environmental organizations are trying to derail this truly bipartisan effort, co-sponsored by more than 40 senators.

NSSF is urging hunters, target shooters and outdoor trade business owners to get on the phone to ask your senators to co-sponsor our industry’s top legislative priority. To protect your hunting and shooting heritage call and ask your senators to co-sponsor S.2363. You can also send emails to your senators.

Get NSSF’s fact sheet on S.2363.

This is a softball bill designed Red State Democrats something to run for re-election on something other than border security, illegals flooding the borders hoping to get in under the pending “Dream Act” (AKA Nightmare Act), Obama Care (right) and other Democratic bungles. While I believe it will pass in the end, it should be noted that the same Democrat Senators that are voting for this also voted to restrict the weapons they now say they support. So…. While it might be good for hunters now, they can always take away your hunting guns later. Be aware people. Vote republican… Read more »


@Sath – Maybe you’ll enjoy quoting John Kerry’s views on the EPA and the environment? Here’s one for starters. “If we make the necessary efforts to address this challenge – and supposing I’m wrong or scientists are wrong … what’s the worst that can happen?”


@Sath, go back to sucking on your Obama dolls you anti-hunting troll. This bill has nothing to do with the NRA. Oh and I guess all that stuff about science they taught you in school was a hoax and a waste of time, or at least on you it was.


Talk about a useless bill aimed at giving a freebie to the NRA. The EPA would deal with lead in ammo, but has aleady said they aren’t doing anything. So glad, politicians step in and over science once again (next time you hear a politician talk about leaving it up to science, think of this and giggle). We need to vote these clowns out who support useless bills like this.
