NEWS ALERT: NRA-Backed Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act Passes House

27 Feb

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!!!

NRA news alert on passing through the full federal house, the “sportsmen” destruction of the Wilderness Act of 1964 (READ BELOW)

THIS HAS TO BE STOPPED IN THE SENATE!!

THE FEDERAL HOUSE OF “REPRESENTATIVES” (representing the NRA and the patriarchal forces of war) passed this. Contact your senators as if this matters! It’s evil twin senate bill 405 is already on the move and scheduled for a vote on the calendar (does not say when) BUT SOON.

This will devastate vulnerable wildlife on some 630 MILLION MORE ACRES of formerly unhunted, untrapped land and these animals have no clue about the ways of man. It will cause more devastation spreading lead shot all over and shooting ranges across lands that will then have roads built for hunter and trapper (and hounder?) access to kill out the last WILDERNESS ACT OF 1964 lands that were to be set aside in perpetuity for nature to survive without man’s devastating assaults.
 
PLEASE contact your federal senators NOW and repeatedly – network on social networks and your email lists and contribute to a public outcry.  If these lands go, there will be little hope of protecting the web of life that sustains us.  We are in real trouble. Column coming out about all of this Sunday.
 
THIS IS VERY BAD NEWS. The killing minority has been trying to pass this package of devastating destruction for years and now it has passed the house. It cannot pass the senate.

NRA-Backed Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act Passes House

 

Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association applauds the passage of H.R. 2406, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act. Introduced by Representative Robert Wittman (R-VA 1), the SHARE Act provides enhanced access to public lands while limiting punitive regulations promoted by “animal rights” extremists.  

“The SHARE Act will strengthen America’s hunting, fishing, and sport shooting heritage now and in the future,” said Chris Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “There will be more resources available for public ranges, more hunter access to public lands, and more opportunities for Americans to enjoy the great outdoors.”

In addition to allowing law-abiding gun owners increased access to carry firearms on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers, the SHARE Act also protects the use of traditional ammunition and requires that U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management management plans to facilitate hunting, fishing, and shooting. Finally, the bill would more comprehensively address the interstate transportation of firearms and ammunition for hunters and law-abiding gun owners.

“On behalf of our 5 million members, we would like to thank Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI 1), Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-23) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA 1).  We also appreciate the hard work of Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT 1), Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX 32) and the lead sponsors of the bill: Reps. Robert Wittman (R-VA 1), Tim Walz (D-MN 1), Jeff Duncan (R-SC 3), and Gene Green (D-TX 29) on moving this legislation through the House,” concluded Cox.

The NRA would also like to thank Safari Club International, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and other groups that worked hard to rally support for the legislation.  

The bill now heads to the U.S. Senate, where a similar package (the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015) has already advanced from the Committees on Energy and Natural Resources and Environment and Public Works.
