A recent post by a forum member here shared a great resource from NRA-ILA that citizens can use to contact their elected officials, including sending them a form letter on a potential renewed "Assault Weapon Ban."

There is another great resource called POPVOX (from the latin vox populi - the voice of the people; popular or public opinion) that users can take advantage of to express their opinions to their legislators.  While POPVOX has been around for a couple years, it has recently been gaining in popularity and is a perfect opportunity for supporters of the Second Amendment to voice their feelings on pending gun control measures.  Advocates of such gun control measures are highly motivated and are taking action.  We need to do the same to avoid being the "silent majority." 

As the video below mentions, if we sit idly by we will end up with a situation where a majority of the population may not support gun control but a majority of the population that the legislators hear from DO support it.  If we take action, we can shift that tide and show legislators that we - their constituency... their bosses - oppose more gun control laws that have proven time and time again to be wholly ineffective at stopping (or even reducing by a minimal degree) crime and violence.

This thread will be used to share POPVOX information and link to the POPVOX pages for bills related to gun control issues.  Our staff will try to keep the thread updated with such links but, as a community, we need to work together.  If you spot bills that we miss or haven't linked to yet, please post the links to them.  Spread the word to your friends, family members, Twitter followers, Facebook buddies, gun club, shooting range, hunting pals, etc.

Re: The Official GunLink POPVOX Thread To Oppose Gun Control Legislation
« Reply #1 on: January 07, 2013, 09:37:05 AM »
Here is the first set of gun control related POPVOX links:




Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence
Washington needs to pass gun laws that will keep guns out of the hands of criminals and other prohibited purchasers and keep military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines off of our streets. To do this, they should pass laws that will:

    1. Require criminal background checks for ALL gun sales, including private sales.
    2. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
    3. Make gun trafficking a federal crime.
(Proposed by: Mayors Against Illegal Guns.)

By supporting, you will be telling Congress that you support these changes to federal gun laws.

By opposing, you will be telling Congress that you oppose these changes to gun laws.



Repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.
H.R. 133: To repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.



Closing the 'gun show loophole'
H.R. 141: To require criminal background checks on all firearms transactions occurring at gun shows.



H.R. 142
H.R. 142: To require face to face purchases of ammunition, to require licensing of ammunition dealers, and to require reporting regarding bulk purchases of ammunition.



The High Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act
H.R. 138: To prohibit the transfer or possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices, and for other purposes.



The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act
H.R. 34: To provide for the implementation of a system of licensing for purchasers of certain firearms and for a record of sale system for those firearms, and for other purposes.



Mandatory licensing and registration of handguns
H.R. 117: To provide for the mandatory licensing and registration of handguns.



New Version of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban
Sen. Feinstein's New Version of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban


Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is working on a new version of the federal Assault Weapons Ban, a law she helped write in 1994 and has been trying to revive since it expired in 2004. The legislation, which will be introduced in 2013, proposes a ban on assault weapons and large ammunition magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds -- but would grandfather in weapons and magazines purchased legally before the new law takes effect. The bill would stop the sale of more than 100 assault weapons, but exempt more than 900 specific hunting and sporting weapons, according to Sen. Feinstein.

By supporting, you will be telling Congress to stand behind a new federal Assault Weapons Ban.

By opposing, you will be telling Congress that you are against a new federal Assault Weapons Ban.



Raising the age of legal handgun ownership to 21.
H.R. 65: To prevent children’s access to firearms.



The Fix Gun Checks Act
H.R. 137: To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale.



OLD BILLS - You can no longer share your opinion on these bills via POPVOX.

A Federal Assault Weapons Ban
Congress passed a federal Assault Weapons Ban in 1994, but the ban expired in 2004.  A new bill would ban military-style weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.  Approximately one out of five law enforcement officers slain in the line of duty are killed by assault weapons. Congress should draft a new law that is clear and enforceable and will take military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines out of our communities. (Proposed by: Mayors Against Illegal Guns.)

By supporting, you will be telling Congress you support a new federal assault weapons ban.

By opposing, you will be telling Congress that you are against a new federal assault weapons ban.

This proposal was proposed in a previous session of Congress. You can no longer write a comment about this proposal.




S. 436: Fix Gun Checks Act of 2011
Summary: A bill to ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale. (More Info)

S. 436 was introduced in the 112th Congress, which has adjourned. It has not yet been reintroduced.

Be sure to READ THE BILLS

Please note that bills frequently get nice, friendly sounding names.  Common sense? Less violence?  Who doesn't want that?  People see titles like that and say "Sure, I like common sense and don't want more violence" so they support a measure without reading it.  If you read what that "common sense" consists of, it's more gun control and the specific bills for those gun control measures are widely opposed because readers aren't being "duped" by nonsensical titles.

Another instance:

The NRA Members' Gun Safety Act
H.R. 21: To provide for greater safety in the use of firearms.

Read a little further and we see the bill text, which includes such gems as:

TITLE I--REQUIRING A BACKGROUND CHECK FOR EVERY FIREARM SALE
SEC. 101. PURPOSE.
    The purpose of this title is to extend the Brady Law background check procedures to all sales and transfers of firearms.




Ah yes... they mythical 'gun show loophole.'  Again.  The bill also includes language about background checks for gun store employees, requirements for reporting lost/stolen firearms, obtaining CCW permits, and measures to "prevent terrorists from obtaining firearms" - such as making firearms transfers be at the discretion of the Attorney General.  Looks like Mexican drug cartels will be safe, however.

As they say, the devil is in the details.  Get involved in supporting our rights but be sure to really get involved - read the bills, figure out what they're about, form an opinion and share your views with the legislators. Don't just skim.  If you have questions or comments on the bills, you're probably not the only one; feel free to share them in this thread.

Additionally, H.R. 227 would provide for $15,000,000 in funds to be appropriated to carry out for the period of fiscal years 2014 through 2018. The bill would also require the Attorney General, through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Justice Programs, to enter into an arrangement with the National Academy of Sciences to “develop standards for identifying, and identify, guns that are the most likely to be used in violent crimes and establish a pricing scale for purchasing guns so identified through gun buyback programs receiving grants under this section.”






The SAFER Streets Act (Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act)
H.R. 226: Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act

While individual contact:  Email, snail mail, phone call or personal visit - is necessary, membership in both national and state pro-rights organizations is important.  The 'secret' is that your elected 'representatives' are your 'hired help', and on both national and state level, they respond to only two things:  Money and numbers.  If a state legislator hears from an organization in his state composed of, say, 10,000 voters, he's going to listen.  If a national organization sends out postcards, or has a direct email link or phone number to your 'hired hand' in the District of Corruption, use it.  The fewer who think they know better than you what's 'good for you', the less likely they are to sell out your liberty...but they need to know you're watching, and will hold them accountable.

Some of the bills this time were difficult to find as they didn't show up under the firearms section. I had to go to GovTrack to do a keyword search this time. For information on some of these you can click on the "More Info" link in PopVox. I also found two more in the GovTrack that didn't show up in PopVox:

HR 808 - will establish a department for arms control and disarmament

S 903 - details how non-US citizens can own firearms within the state they reside

S 1212 - deals with establishing more public ranges

HR 2046 - protects the right to bear arms at water resources development project

HR 2361 - deals with prohibiting local and state governments from increasing taxes on the sale of firearms and ammunition, as well as the background check

I also found two more in the GovTrack that do no appear on PopVox:

HR 2464 - would amend the consumer product safety to remove the exclusion of firearms and would require safety standards be established and met

HR 2463 - the house bill that goes with S 1212
