Here is a list of pending gun legislation before Congress. I've also provided some easy links for those who want to let their representatives know how they feel about anti-gun laws:

S. 1805 ("Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act"): Legislation will halt predatory lawsuits against the gun industry. As we did in 2004, we will oppose all anti-gun amendments. One of our top priorities next year will be to ensure passage of a "clean" lawsuit bill. Please continue to contact your U.S. Senators in support of legislation to halt these reckless lawsuits without any "poison pill" anti-gun amendments. This bill passed in the House last year, and had majority support in the U.S. Senate (and is supported by President Bush), but was torpedoed by anti-gun zealots, including former Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), who helped his fellow anti-gun Senators attach a number of anti-gun amendments to the underlying measure.
H.R. 3193 ("District of Columbia Personal Protection Act"): This bill would restore the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding District residents and allow them to protect their families and homes with a firearm. This legislation passed overwhelmingly in the House in September, but wasn't acted upon by the Senate.

H.R. 4048 ("Firearm Commerce Modernization Act"): This proposal will update federal gun law to take advantage of modern technology. With all retail sales now requiring an FBI background check, passage of this bill would allow for interstate gun sales, provided these sales comply with laws in both the dealer's and the buyer's states. The legislation would also remove convoluted limits on licensed dealers, allowing them to conduct the same transactions in person that they currently perform with one another by mail.

H.R. 4126 ("Cockpit Security Technical Corrections and Improvements Act"): This bill would expedite the training and arming of qualified airline personnel to defend against terrorism as Federal Flight Deck Officers (FFDO). Implementation of this program to date has been unacceptably slow. Under this measure, experienced, trained pilots would be armed immediately on a provisional basis, and the training of all pilots who wish to participate in the FFDO would be streamlined. The bill would also allow use of qualified private facilities for training and requalification of FFDOs.

H.R. 3801 ("First Amendment Restoration Act"): With the onerous "gag order" placed upon NRA during the most critical period of an election cycle, H.R. 3801 would restore the First Amendment right of groups like NRA to fully participate in the election process.

Thanks for the heads up Clay. I'll be sending those out. Rocky and Byrd are probably two of the most liberal Sens. in the US, but that doesn't stop me from telling them they're wrong. I have to, Cephus is afraid of them.:lol:

It's important to write the leglisators and let them know how we feel. Maybe we can get some of these passed.
