Fight the NRA’s Last-Ditch Effort in Congress to Weaken Gun Laws

logo_bca_global_top.gifEMAIL YOUR U.S. REPRESENTATIVE TODAY!

The clock is ticking and the NRA, desperate to push through as much of their extremist agenda as possible before the fall elections, is working fast and furiously: this week alone, the NRA’s cronies in Congress have scheduled votes on three different pieces of legislation that each represents a threat to public safety.

For years, the NRA’s rallying cry has been “we don’t need new gun laws. We need strong enforcement of the gun laws we have.” Every one of the bills the NRA is pushing would weaken existing gun laws and make them more difficult to enforce. What hypocrisy!

The NRA is leading an effort to protect the corrupt dealers who supply the gun traffickers, feeding the illegal market. In fact, one of the most reckless dealers they are trying to protect is Sandy Abrams, who actually sits on the NRA’s Board of Directors! (Relying on a Brady Center investigative report exposing these corrupt dealers, The Washington Post and Baltimore Sun have found Abrams’ outrageous behavior worthy of recent front-page articles.)

Two of the NRA-backed bills (H.R. 5005 and H.R. 5092) would weaken the power of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). Our Congressional Representatives must hear our opposition to these bills loud and clear. Please email your US Representative right now and make sure that they know how strongly you oppose these anti-law enforcement efforts.

H.R. 5005 would weaken ATF’s power by limiting the data available to law enforcement about the gun dealers with the worst records of supplying the illegal market — people like Sandy Abrams. 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.

The gun lobby is also frantically pushing H.R. 5092, a bill that would undermine ATF’s ability to crack down on corrupt gun dealers, so dealers such as Sandy Abrams — whose gun store has more than 1,000 violations of federal law — could continue doing business with no threat of having his federal license revoked if H.R. 5092 became law.

But the NRA is not stopping there. Also in its desperate, last-chance power grab is H.R. 1384, an insidious assault on Brady Background Checks as well as on the landmark 1968 Gun Control Act, that will make it easier for gun traffickers to cross state lines to get guns.

But with all of these attacks on ATF and sensible gun laws, it is good to know that a least a little common sense is coming through: this week the House Judiciary Committee will vote on legislation sponsored by our House Champion, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, that would protect public safety by making funds available for states to share records on all prohibited purchasers to prevent dangerous people from buying guns. H.R. 1415 will help keep guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists, and other prohibited purchasers, and make our streets safer. This one we can support!

Here’s What You Can Do Today to Help Us Fight this Last-Ditch NRA Effort:

1. Email Your U.S. Representative.
Tell him or her: “Oppose H.R. 5005, 5092, and 1384. Help our police. Don’t protect corrupt gun dealers.” Tell him or her to support H.R. 1415 and keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Click here to send Congress an email.

Please 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.


Sincerely,
Your Friends at
