House to Vote on Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations Bills with Pro-Rights Riders

Via NSSF:

Today the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Spending Bill that contains ATF appropriations that include many pro-industry, pro-Second Amendment riders such as the so-called "Tiahrt Amendment" that protects sensitive law enforcement gun trace data from public disclosure. The ATF rider also includes the "Rehberg Amendment" that would block ATF from requiring firearms retailers to report "multiple sales" of (AR-platform) modern sporting rifles, a requirement that NSSF is challenging in court (NSSF v Jones).
Please contact your congressman and urge them to support the 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Spending Bill (the bill does not have a number).  Additionally, it is expected that anti-rights representatives will propose amendments to strip out any provisions in the ATF rider.  Urge your respresentative to oppose anti-rights amendments.

To reach your representative, call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or refer to the list below:
