"When some of my friends have asked me anxiously about their boys, whether they should let them hunt, I have answered, yes - remembering that it was one of the best parts of my education - make them hunters."

Henry David Thoreau, 1854

“A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.” - Robert Boatman

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is raising an alarm about a House bill reauthorizing and updating existing federal rules relating to transportation of hazardous materials. The bill, H.R.4016, has the potential to cause some problems for manufacturers of small arms ammunition. With supply already being outstripped by demand, anything that might cause delays for manufacturers is a serious concern.

Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) has an amendment which addresses the industry's objections, but there is no guarantee that he will be able to attach the amendment. NSSF is asking GunVoters to contact the Chairman of the House Infrastructure and Transportation Committee, Rep. James Oberstar (D-MN) to urge him to work to include the Graves amendment. It would also be helpful to contact your own Rep. And ask that they also support the Graves amendment.

It is expected that there will be more information on this bill and the Graves amendment Monday or Tuesday so check out the Firearms Coalition web page for updates.
