SB-1156 by Senator Durell Peaden, to stop government from suing gun ranges, is coming up AGAIN in another Senate Committee.
NRA and USF SUPPORT THIS BILL and NEED YOUR HELP !!!!!!
This time, the bill will be heard by the Senate Comprehensive Planning Committee. It will be heard next TUESDAY, January 20, 2004 at 12:00 noon.
IT IS URGENT THAT YOU EMAIL MEMBERS OF THE COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING COMMITTEE IMMEDIATELY and urge them to SUPPORT SB-1156 to stop backdoor gun control by suing and bankrupting gun ranges.
In the subject line of your email put the following message:
SUPPORT SB-1156 -- STOP DEP FROM SHUTTING DOWN GUN RANGES
Email addresses of SENATE Comprehensive Planning Committee members who need to be contacted:
This bill will stop anti-gun individuals "embedded" in government agencies (from previous anti-gun governors and administrations) from filing law-suits to shut down ranges.
This bill will stop government agencies from forcefully taking ranges, under eminent domain, from range owners and then turning around and suing them to make them remove all projectiles from the land.
This bill will stop government agencies from using a seeming bottomless pit of tax payer dollars to sue ranges and force them into bankruptcy.
It is in the public interest that firearms owners have a place to shoot and practice gun safety. This bill will insure public safety by protecting ranges from overzealous anti-gun officials.
This bill will insure that citizens who want to exercise their right of lawful self-defense have a place to train so they can provide the mandated documentation the state requires for licenses to carry concealed firearms.
This bill will insure that citizens who want to engage in the American tradition of hunting have a place to train so they can provide the mandated hunter safety training the state requires for hunting licenses.
Projectiles are integral to sport shooting and training range activity and to the ownership and use of firearms. Over years of operation, projectiles have accumulated in the environment at many ranges...but despite so-called "studies" by anti-gun environmentalists, many believe there is no indisputable or incontrovertible evidence that projectile accumulation at sport shooting and training ranges poses a threat to the environment or to human health.
IF RANGES ARE CLOSED, YOU WON'T HAVE A PLACE TO SHOOT. IF YOU CAN'T SHOOT THEY'LL SAY YOU HAVE NO REASON TO OWN A GUN.
HELP STOP THESE OUT OF CONTROL AGENCIES WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY YOUR RIGHTS WITH PHONY LAWSUITS.
PLEASE ACT NOW! URGE SUPPORT FOR SB-1156 by Senator Durell Peaden
