The Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 Needs Your Help

Call Your U.S. Senators to Keep it Alive!

Contact Your SenatorsThe Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 (S.3525) still can be enacted in this Congress if we keep the pressure on. All hunters, target shooters and firearms owners should call your senators today and urge them to work in a bipartisan manner to resolve budgetary concerns raised on Monday so the Sportsmen’s Act can be brought back to the floor for a vote on final passage. There are ongoing negotiations but time is running short. Tell your senators to compromise and reach a bipartisan agreement now.

The Sportsmen’s Act is the most important package of measures for the benefit of sportsmen in a generation. It took a great deal of work to bring together no less than 46 of the nation’s leading sportsmen and conservation groups including NSSF, NRA, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, American Sportfishing Association, International Game Fish Association, Center for Coastal Conservation, and Boone and Crockett Club to champion S.3525.

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to urge your senators to continue their bipartisan work on The Sportsmen’s Act of 2012. Let’s get the bill passed before the end of the 112th Congress. Find complete contact information for your elected officials here.

    Both of my senators voted yes. I’ve been looking around the web to see what the reaction to that filibuster has been. Hunters Rights the wep portal for the NRA on issues hunting is silent. This is one of the NRA’s most important pieces of legislation they’ve tried to pass in a long time. I also noticed in the comments section of a post you folks did supporting the passage of this bill back a couple weeks ago that conspiracy and reactionary rules. Dems are for it, must be bad, type of mentality. Misunderstanding of what the bill actually does for the regulation of lead in ammo.

    At first I was just pissed. Now looking at it, I’m starting to think about the repercussions of what used to be seamless coordination between the NRA and the GOP. The NRA was already planning the melding of the two bills, how to get things past the congress when it went to committee if those are the right words. The NRA didn’t see this coming, blind sided they were.

    Will the NRA rethink their support of the GOP? Will they look at a politicians record more dispassionately? We now have a political class of whom 99% could care less about issues 2A, they’ve no willingness to take up any sort of legislation regarding guns. Maybe the NRA should think a little more about whom they support and why.

    What of the huge number of dittoheads stuck out there in “Barack and Hillary are conspiring to take our guns and send us to FEMA camps” how to bring them back to reality? Cause they’re posting on your comments section, and they’re applauding their senators voting against hunting and shooting.
