Federal: Contact Your Senator to Oppose S.2095 AWB

S. 2095, the so called Assault Weapons Ban of 2017, seeks to ban standard capacity magazines and semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns.  Modern semi-automatic firearms are commonly owned by law-abiding citizens for all sorts of legitimate purposes, and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition are standard equipment on nearly all common self-defense handguns and rifles. 

While the bill provides an exception for firearms and magazines that are currently lawfully possessed, it would impose strict storage and transfer requirements on grandfathered firearms and would punish violations of these requirements with harsh penalties.  Gun owners could face imprisonment for simply not storing their firearms anytime they are out of arms reach or if they loan the firearm to a friend without taking it to a licensed dealer to run a background check and record the transaction.

Please contact your Senator and urge them to OPPOSE S. 2095!


Federal: Rep. Rob Bishop Introduces the "Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act"

On Wednesday, May 24, 2017, Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources Rob Bishop (R-UT) introduced H.R. 2620, the "Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act."

This bill would remove ATF's authority to use the "sporting purposes" clauses in federal law in ways that could undermine the core purpose of the Second Amendment. Under Chairman Bishop’s legislation, all lawful purposes – including self-defense – would have to be given due consideration and respect in the administration of federal firearms law.
