Michigan: Update on Pro-Gun Reforms in Lansing

Over the next couple of months, the Michigan Legislature will be taking an extended recess to allow state legislators to return to their respective districts and focus on constituent issues.  As a result, during the limited legislative session days left before the lame-duck session begins in November, it is important that the state legislature focus on priority legislation.  The NRA views the legislation below as top priorities for 2014 and encourages our members to contact their state legislators to express their support.

Update on Proposed Ban on the Domestic Sale of Ivory and Importation of Elephant Trophies

In recent Grassroots Alerts, we addressed the Obama Administration’s proposal to ban the trade and sale of legally owned ivory within the United States (click here to see the initial alert).  The NRA supports efforts to stop poaching and the illegal trade of ivory.  However, banning lawfully-owned domestic ivory will have no impact on elephant poaching in Africa.  On the contrary, such a ban would affect only honest, law-abiding Americans by making their possessions valueless.  Please see this New York Times article highlighting the broad spectrum of people who will be harmed by the ban.

North Carolina: Update on Legislation Repealing Gun Registration in Durham County

As previously reported, Senate Bill 226, sponsored by state Senator Mike Woodard (D-22), passed unanimously on its second and third reading in the North Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday.  S 226, which repeals a 1935 law that allows gun registration in Durham County, went into effect upon ratification yesterday.  Since S 226 is considered a “local” bill, it does not need to be signed into law by Governor Pat McCrory (R) to be enacted.
