I received this letter this morning from Senator Leahy. This is serious folks they intend to ram this through one way or another. Senator Leahy is the chairman of the Judiciary committee here is the contact information,Let Your Voice Be Heard. SJ 40 https://www.leahy.senate.gov/contact/ Dear -- Good news! After nearly 5,000 responses to my call for comments the Leahy-Collins legislation to help stop weapons trafficking passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday and was reported to the full Senate. The committee began work on Senator Feinsteins bill to regulate assault weapons but was unable to complete action as Republican opponents of the bill filed over a dozen amendments to gut it. Opponents of Senator Feinsteins bill have shown they will try to delay the assault weapon ban from coming out of Judiciary by offering amendment after amendment. They actually hope their dilatory tactics will end up defeating the bill in committee. But those tactics will not work in the Committee that I chair if Democrats stay unified behind her bill. We still have a lot of work to do. I will reconvene the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday to work through all the amendments the Republicans have cooked up against the Feinstein bill, Senator Schumer's bill to improve background checks, and Senators Boxer and Warner's bill to improve school safety. And we will continue marking up through next week to complete action on these important bills. It would be great to hear your thoughts before we work to report these bills to the Senate. If you havent yet, I hope youll click here to share your thoughts on how we can prevent gun violence so I can have them on hand as we debate this important legislation next week. Ill be pushing hard to finish our work all next week, so please feel free to share this message with your friends and encourage them to add their thoughts as well. Thank you for helping us strive to develop a truly comprehensive solution to help our country stop gun violence and protect our families. Sincerely, Patrick Leahy U.S. Senator Wanna kill these ads?
