Tell Legislators to End the DC Gun Ban!
The latest NRA update urges members to contact their federal legislators and tell them to co-sponsor and vote for the following bill, that would end the ineffective and unconstitutional D.C. gun ban. In a city with a homicide rate through the roof, it is clear that the gun ban only disarms innocent citizens who are now defenseless against the criminals in the streets of D.C. H.R. 1288/S. 1082-Legislation to repeal the draconian D.C. gun ban and restore the right of lawful District residents to own firearms to defend themselves and their families. There is another good bill pending in Congress. Please tell your legislators to support it as well. H.R. 4547/S. 3275-Legislation that would allow any person with a valid carry permit or license issued by a state to carry a concealed firearm in any other state if he or she meets certain criteria. Importantly, the laws of each state governing where concealed firearms may be carried would still apply within its borders.
