On Wednesday, in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, 65 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, led by Congressman Mike Ross (D-Ark.), expressed their opposition to the reinstatement of the failed 1994 ban on semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines. These congressmen cited numerous studies that proved the 1994 ban was ineffective, and they strongly urged Attorney General Holder to stop his effort and instead focus on the enforcement of existing gun laws.
NRA-ILA would like to thank Congressman Ross for his leadership on this effort. We will continue to work with Members of Congress from both parties on this important issue. [link]
To his credit, Congressman Rick Boucher (D-Abingdon) signed the letter and is now on record as being opposed to the reintroduction of that silly "assault weapons" ban.A copy of the letter, with his signature affixed thereto, can be found here.
Our profound thanks go out to Mr. Boucher for working to protect our freedoms in this era when those freedoms we hold most dear are under constant assault by an ever more intrusive government.
