Dear Members of Bucks County Fish and Game Sportsman Association:

I am sending this email to let you know that the all-out assault on the 2nd Amendment has started. There are two bills making their way through Congress, HR-8 and HR-1446 both bills will expand background checks for the transfer of all firearms. What this means is that you cannot give you Son or Daughter a rifle or shotgun without going through a dealer, filling out a 4473 form and going through the background check process. These two bills also contain addition restrictions on our firearm ownership.

Additionally, in one of these bills is the elimination of the waiting period that provides for the transfer of a firearm if the background check does not come back within a specified time. This means the government can deny a transfer of a firearm without a reason, and this can be indefinitely.

You need to contact your Federal Representatives and tell them not to vote for these bills.

Please do not sit back and do nothing we can loose everything.


Charlie Ziccardi, President
