Senate Gun Control Debate to Begin Tomorrow
Senate Gun Control Debate to Begin Tomorrow- Multiply Your Force by Five!

Tomorrow, April 16, the U.S. Senate will begin consideration of a number of anti-gun proposals. The underlying bill is S. 649, the so-called “Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013”, which would significantly restrict our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

S. 649 seeks to criminalize the private transfer of firearms by law-abiding citizens, requiring friends, neighbors and many family members to get government permission to exercise a fundamental right or face prosecution. Among the amendments that will likely be offered to S. 649 are a ban on commonly and lawfully-owned firearms and magazines and language to criminalize the private transfer of firearms through an expansion of background checks. This includes the misguided background check “compromise” proposal drafted by Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV), Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY)—a proposal NRA strongly opposes!

NRA unequivocally opposes S. 649 and all anti-gun amendments to this bill!

For weeks, you have diligently contacted your U.S. Senators and asked them to oppose S. 649 and all anti-gun amendments, while urging support for reforms that respect gun owners’ rights, and enhance the safety of all Americans. Now, in these crucial next days, in addition to continuing to contact your U.S. Senators with these important messages, our challenge to you is to spread the word! Please contact a minimum of five of your family, friends, or fellow firearm owners and ensure they contact their U.S. Senators immediately with this same message!

If you can add five additional voices in this debate, we will be heard loud and clear over the constant drumbeat of the gun control crowd. This is the battle of our lifetimes, so we have to do everything we can to defend freedom!

Please continue contacting your Senators and find five others to do the same. You can use the "Write Your Reps" feature at, or you can reach your U.S. Senators by phone at 202-224-3121.

The time to act is NOW! Ask your Senators to oppose S. 649 and all anti-gun amendments – including the anti-gun Schumer-Manchin-Toomey proposal! And please find five more to do the same!
