    Background checks on black powder purchases

    I received this information in an email from the NMLRA:Senate to Consider Background Checks on Purchases of Black PowderOn April 17th, 2013, U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) issued a press stating that he plans on proposing new legislation and attempting to amend current gun control legislation before Congress that would require the sales of black powder to be subject to a criminal background check. The entire press release can be read by clicking here. http://www.lautenberg.senate.gov/new...?id=341435&The NMLRA staff is working to monitor this proposed legislation and keep you informed as the situation develops.According to the press release, Lautenberg will introduce the “Explosive Materials Background Check Act,” which will require a background check to purchase black powder, black powder substitute and smokeless powder in any quantity. His office has also stated that he intends to offer this is as an amendment on future legislation that is being considered by the Senate.The NMLRA encourages you to contact your elected officials and voice your opinion on this matter. You may use the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s elected official lookup to determine who your representatives are in Congress.

    Exclamation Lautenberg comes back to life!

    I stand corrected! They DID dig him up, hit him with the paddles and the rest is a real horror story!

    Senate Bill S.792

    Senator Reid introduced this bill on Tuesday of this week. This bill is being reintroduced as a knee jerk to the cowardly act of terrorism in Boston. All initial reports indicate that the terrorists obtained their propellant from fireworks purchased in New Hampshire, not by purchasing powder through a dealer. Contact your Senators and urge them to oppose this bill. http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-actio...for-explosives
