Default Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act

Reach Out to Your Senator During the Easter Recess,
Urge Them to Co-Sponsor the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act

Senators are on their way home for Easter recess and will be spending the next two weeks in their home states.

Now is the time for you and all other firearm owners, hunters, target shooters and sportsmen to attend public events with, call or email your senators and urge them to co-sponsor the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act (S.1996), the most important package of measures for the benefit of hunters, sportsmen and target shooters in a generation. If possible, find out the location of your senators’ in-state offices from their websites and reach out to those offices during this recess. It will make an impression!

Among other things, this historic piece of legislation will prevent anti-hunting groups from restricting hunters’ ammunition choices; provide state fish & game agencies with more flexibility to use Pittman-Robertson funds to build and maintain badly needed public shooting ranges; and help facilitate and provide for more access to Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service lands and waters for hunting, recreational fishing and target shooting.

We cannot let anti-hunting activists defeat S.1996! Act now and call your senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to co-sponsor the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014!

Find out if your senator has already co-sponsored this legislation, then call them and thank them for their leadership.

Get NSSF’s fact sheet on S.1996.

The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!

A couple things need to be clarified before we support this bill. I don't know what to make of this line.

Requires projects identified on such a list to secure, through rights-of-way or the acquisition of lands or interests from willing sellers, recreational public access to existing federal public lands that have significantly restricted access to hunting, fishing, and other recreational purposes.
Amends the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA) to revoke provisions that terminate: (1) the authority provided under such Act, and (2) the Federal Land Disposal Account.
Makes the FLTFA inapplicable to land eligible for sale under specified public land laws.
Transfers to the Treasury for budget deficit reduction, for each of FY2014-FY2023, $1 million of the amounts deposited in the Federal Land Disposal Account.
