SB249 (Semi-Auto Firearms) FAILS PASSAGE!
SB249 failed passage today, August 16, in the Assembly Appropriations Committee! There have been several rumors in the past few days about the fate of SB249. This time it’s true – SB249 did not survive the scheduled hearing.
BUT… it is not over until it is over. CRPA and NRA will continue to be on the alert until midnight on August 31, the end of the 2011/2012 legislative session. Up until that time, a “rule waiver” could be granted to bring SB249 back for reconsideration. We do not anticipate that will occur. Nevertheless, SB249 needs to be watched closely until adjournment of the legislative session at midnight on the 31st.
Now, it is time for us all to remember that many bad anti-gun and anti-hunting bills are still active in the legislature. Please continue to call/write/email/fax/etc. until we defeat every freedom-robbing piece of legislation in the Capitol.

You made the difference! THANK YOU for making your voice heard LOUD AND CLEAR down at the capitol. Your phone calls, e-mails, and letters flooded the legislative offices and got the message across! THANK YOU for your outstanding efforts and support for the Second Amendment.
