Sportsmen's Act Will Soon Face a Vote

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121

As the 112th Congress begins its post-election session, NSSF encourages all firearms owners, hunters, target shooters and sportsmen to call or email their U.S. senators and urge them to vote YES on the Sportsmen's Act (S.3525) -- the most important package of bipartisan legislation for the benefit of sportsmen in a generation -- and to oppose any amendment to the bill. The Senate is expected to vote on the bill Thursday, so act now.
