Pending Legislation

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

As an "Endowment" member of the National Rifle Association, I receive frequent e-mails from that organization, most of which I ignore or delete.

But, I just now received one which actually did contain some important information, so I'm sending you two (02) of the items I deemed most worthwhile.

There were more topics covered, but if you want further information, you can visit the National Rifle Association web site.

Their URL is at:

The first proposed legislation pertains to everybody, for it is nation-wide.

The second proposed legislation will directly benefit myself and my fellow residents here at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.



U.S. Representative Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) recently introduced H.R. 4547-a national Right-to-Carry (RTC) reciprocity bill that would provide national reciprocity for state carry licensees.

The bill 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 they meet certain criteria.

The bill would not create a federal licensing system; it would simply require the states to recognize each other's carry permits, just as they recognize drivers' licenses.

For more information on the bill, please visit

Please be sure to contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 4547!




As we continue to note, one of NRA-ILA's top legislative priorities in Congress continues to be the passage of S. 1082 and H.R. 1288 - the Senate and House versions of the "District of Columbia Personal Protection Act."

This legislation seeks to restore the constitutionally-guaranteed Second Amendment rights of the residents of the District of Columbia.

The need for this corrective legislation is obvious.

Since 1977, the District has banned the possession of all handguns not acquired and registered before that year.

D.C. law also prohibits keeping an assembled rifle or shotgun in the home, effectively outlawing the use of firearms for lawful self-defense.

And despite these Draconian gun control laws, Washington, D.C. consistently has one of the highest murder rates in the nation.

Please be sure to contact your U.S. Senators and Representative and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 1082 and H.R. 1288.

I am posting this at my blog and sharing it in the Internet discussion forums I participate in.

If you wish to share this with others, then please be considerate and conceal the identities of multiple recipients, in order to preserve their privacy.

Also, instead of merely forwarding this e-mail, it's better to copy the text and paste it into a brand new blank e-mail.

Thank you.
