Protect the Homeland

We must be doing something right! Within weeks of launching our Campaign Against Illegal Guns the gun lobby has responded by trying to get quick action in Congress on proposals that would protect corrupt gun dealers by weakening law enforcement.

Unbelievable. At a time when America is coming together to stop the flow of illegal guns into our communities, the NRA is leading the effort to protect the very dealers who supply the illegal gun market. We need more power to stop these criminals, not less.

The NRA-backed bills are H.R. 5005 and H.R. 5092: two bills that would weaken the enforcement power of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). We must email our U.S. Representatives and make sure that they know how strongly we oppose these anti-law enforcement efforts.

H.R. 5005 would weaken ATF's enforcement power by limiting the data available to law enforcement about the gun dealers with the worst records of supplying the illegal market. But there are also many other harmful provisions in the bill, including eliminating the current requirement that gun dealers report multiple handgun sales to law enforcement officials. Recently, New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg came to Washington to testify against H.R. 5005. The Mayor urged Congress to reject "a bill that coddles criminals and endangers police officers and citizens not only in New York City but across this country."

The gun lobby is also pushing H.R. 5092, a bill that would undermine ATF's ability to put corrupt gun dealers out of business. Dealers such as Trader Sports of San Leandro, California — where the ATF found an astonishing 7,477 firearms "missing" with no record of sale — and Valley Gun of Baltimore — which has more than 1,000 violations of federal law — could keep on doing business with no threat of having their federal licenses revoked if H.R. 5092 became law.

Don't let the NRA push through these dangerous bills — the gun lobby is trying to get them through the House Judiciary Committee in the next few weeks, when Congress returns from recess. We need your emails now!

Here's what you can do today:

1. Email Your U.S. Representative.
Tell him or her: "Oppose H.R. 5005 and 5092. Don't protect corrupt gun dealers by weakening law enforcement." Click here to send Congress an email.

2. Make a Donation.

3. Spread the Word.
Use our easy form to forward this email to everyone in your address book. Congress needs to hear from those of us who support sensible gun laws. Click here to forward this email to friends.

Please follow the link and tell your U.S. Representative to put public safety above gun industry profits, and give our law enforcement officers a fighting chance against gun criminals.

Please oppose H.R. 5005 and H.R. 5092, legislation pushed by the gun lobby that would protect corrupt gun dealers and weaken law enforcement's ability to prevent gun trafficking and other gun crimes.

At a time when communities across the country are desperately seeking help against violent and deadly gun criminals, these backward proposals would actually make the situation worse.

H.R. 5005 would weaken ATF's enforcement power by limiting the data available to law enforcement about the gun dealers with the worst records of supplying the illegal market.  But there are also many other harmful provisions in the bill, including eliminating the current requirement that gun dealers report multiple handgun sales to law enforcement officials.  And H.R. 5092 would undermine ATF's ability to put corrupt gun dealers out of business.

Please do everything possible to stop these bills from becoming law; this is no time for Congress to jeopardize public safety by giving special favors to the gun lobby.
