Last Chance To Stop Gun Confiscation Bill!

ccdl_logo.jpg There are only days left in this year's legislative session.

Amended H.B. 5054 AN ACT PROTECTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE already passed the House late Wednesday night by a 104 to 42 vote and will be called in the Senate any day. This bill seizes firearms, ammunition and permits from legal gun owners that have an Ex Parte Temporary Restraining Order (an order WITHOUT a hearing) filed against them. Nearly half of these Temporary Restraining Orders do not become full restraining orders. WE NEED EVERY MEMBER to call these key Senate leaders, as well as your own Senator today, and tell them to vote NO on H.B. 5054. Call the offices listed below and ask to speak with one of the Senators listed and leave a message. Feel free to use the scripted message below if needed.

Scripted Phone Message Opposing H.B. 5054:
Hi Senator,
My name is _______________________,
I'm calling to voice my opposition to House Bill 5054. I urge you to vote NO on this bill. I oppose H.B. 5054 AN ACT PROTECTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE because.....
--- [Just pick ONE of the following reasons OR use your own] ---
...we already have two laws that removes firearms from an abuser, these are immediate and available 24 hours a day, not just during normal court hours.
...if this bill passes an ABUSER can easily file for a temporary restraining order to disarm the victim. Many women own legal firearms for protection.
...this bill will cause many wrongfully accused people to have their personal property seized prior to having a chance to be heard by a judge.
...if this law was truly about protecting victims, it would address the other weapons that a more commonly used. Guns are the least commonly used weapon in domestic violence incidents. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at ________________.
Thank you for your time and have a good day.
