    Congress Passes NRA-backed “Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act of 2006”


    Saturday, September 30, 2006


    Fairfax, VA- The National Rifle Association (NRA) and law-abiding gun owners scored a significant victory yesterday when the United States Congress acted to prohibit the confiscation of legal firearms from law-abiding citizens during states of emergency, barring practices conducted by officials in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. This action was included in the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations bill that passed both chambers of Congress. This bill now heads to President Bush for his expected signature.
    “Following the chaos and civil disorder in New Orleans when the city effectively suspended the Second Amendment, NRA vowed to make sure we never again witnessed this kind of desecration on our rights,” declared Chris W. Cox. “As promised, NRA set out to pass legislation at both the federal and state levels to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding American citizens.”

    H.R. 5013, the “Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act,” was introduced in the House by Congressman Bobby Jindal (LA - 1) passed the House on July 25, 2006 with a broad bi-partisan margin of 322-99. Senator David Vitter (R-La) introduced the Senate version of the bill, which passed the United States Senate by 84-16, the largest margin of victory for a NRA-backed measure.

    “The essence of the ‘Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act’ was so compelling that it received strong bipartisan support in Congress,” continued Cox. “When 911 is non-existent and law enforcement personnel are busy with search and rescue missions and other duties, law abiding Americans want to defend their families and loved ones in times of emergency. Your NRA helped guarantee their freedom to do just that.”

    “On behalf of all NRA members nationwide, I want to thank Rep. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and Sen. Vitter for their leadership in introducing this legislation and seeing these fundamental bills through to passage,” concluded Cox.

    That is some very great news. Although it is sad that this even has to be debated.

    Wonder who voted against it ?? -------

    Chalk one up for the good guys!

    Looks like all that money we sent them over the years paid off.

    Way to go NRA.

    Go to http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h2006-401 for House voting info.

    I haven't found the Senate stats; it may be too early yet.
    Watch http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/leg...sers/votes.htm for Senate.

    The law will be a good step in the right direction. But it's a long way from what it needs to be.

    It should: 1) strip all civil and criminal immunity defenses from those who order and conduct such seizures; and 2) make it a FELONY with a MANDATORY MINIMUM PRISON SENTENCE for those who order and conduct such seizures.

    Just makin' it illegal ain't enough to keep it from happening, folks.

    That Randy is why I queried the ''teeth'' aspect! I guess we almost need another test case.

    Looked at who voted against it in the house (my reps both voted for) and it looks like the majority were from anti gun states such as California and new york . think people in those states need to rethink who thier reps are when they go to the polls this fall .
