ALERT - HR 47 "Citizens' Self-Defense Act"
ALERT: The new Congress has just started warming their seats filled with more pro-gun members, and we're already getting the chance to show our unified support for some great legislation -- starting with a bill that strongly supports our Second Amendment rights.
Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) has introduced a bill protecting the right of law-abiding Americans to use guns in self-defense.
HR 47, the "Citizens' Self-Defense Act", would specifically protect the right of law-abiding citizens to use handguns, rifles and shotguns in defending themselves, their families or their homes. It would also allow people whose self-defense rights have been violated by any government entity to bring legal action in federal court.
Remember the news stories over the last couple of years, about husbands, wives, fathers and mothers who were arrested after shooting home-invaders, because the "homeowner" possessed a firearm for protecting their family? This bill could put an END to that kind of nonsense.
Let's join together to push through this common-sense gun rights legislation NOW!
TAKE ACTION: Tens of millions of law-abiding, gun-owning Americans voted in November to protect and restore our gun rights.
Now is the time to really sock it to the anti-gun media, entertainment personalities, and the political lapdogs who try to work their wretched will to destroy our Second Amendment."
HR 47 has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary. We must NOT let it get stuck there -- we need to let Congress know that we want SWIFT consideration of this bill! Call, email and write to your Representative, asking him or her to support HR 47, the "Citizens' Self-Defense Act" today.
