    NRA news - pro-gun bill

    I am making sure folks see the latest stuff coming out of NRA-ILA

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    PRO-GUN BILLS MAKE WAY TO HOUSE FLOOR!

    The House of Representatives may act as early as next week on critical
    pro-Second Amendment reform bills. These bills need your support today:

    H.R. 5092--the "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
    (BATFE) Modernization and Reform Act of 2006," by Reps. Howard Coble
    (R-N.C.) and Bobby Scott (D-Va.) -- will curb the agency's efforts to
    revoke dealers' licenses for minor paperwork errors, improve the appeals
    process for dealers, and, establish new guidelines for BATFE
    investigations. This bill was drafted in large part to address recent,
    blatant BATFE abuses at Richmond, Virginia gun shows highlighted in
    hearings before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on
    Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. (See next story on Brady
    Center's blatant misrepresentation of this bill.)

    H.R. 5005--the "Firearms Corrections and Improvements Act," by Rep.
    Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) -- will protect gun owners' privacy by creating a
    permanent version of the "Tiahrt Amendment," preventing disclosure of
    gun owner records outside of legitimate criminal investigations. The
    bill also includes a ban on BATFE retrieving out-of-business dealers'
    records by the gun owner's name-making permanent an appropriations
    restriction that's been in effect for the last 10 years. Among other
    reforms, H.R. 5005 will also permanently ban federal fees on instant
    background checks and roll back various restrictions on firearms
    industry activities.

    With the legislative clock running out, this may be our last chance to
    pass these essential reforms before the November election--so please be
    sure to immediately contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121,
    and urge him or her to VOTE FOR H.R. 5092 and H.R. 5005 when they are
    brought to the House floor! Additional contact information can be found
    by visiting www.NRAILA.org, clicking the "Take Action" icon, and then
    clicking the "Write Your Representatives" icon.

    Please be sure to contact your Representative TODAY, and urge your
    family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same!

    Thank you for your continued support as we work to make these
    legislative reforms the law of the land!

    Just to add - Brady and Co of course don't like it!!!

    BRADY CENTER MISLEADS PUBLIC ON BATFE REFORM BILL

    The Brady Center's latest hatchet job attacks makes many false claims
    about firearm dealer license revocations, in order to attack H.R. 5092
    and the reforms that bill would make.

    The "study" is based on published court decisions that have upheld BATFE
    license revocations. This is misleading because it excludes all cases
    (about 90% of revocations) where dealers choose not to file a challenge
    in court-often because the dealer couldn't afford the necessary
    attorneys' fees.

    The study also implies that dealers violate the law more often than they
    used to. To "prove" this, the Brady Center relies on studies from the
    Clinton administration, which targeted licensees in an effort to reduce
    the availability of firearms to law-abiding Americans. It's not
    surprising that when BATFE politically broadened the definition of
    "violations," it found more of them.

    The report also harps on dealers who had guns "lost" or "unaccounted
    for." These vague phrases don't tell us whether the dealer had a gun
    stolen, made a paperwork mistake, or made criminal "off the book" sales.
    Obviously, under current law or under H.R. 5092, intentional sales
    without paperwork would be serious violations, for which a dealer could
    have his license revoked (and even be arrested and imprisoned).
