Rep. Rob Bishop Introduces Bill to Curb BATFE Abuse

Be interesting to see if this gathers traction. We can only hope...

On Wednesday, June 10, 2015, Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources Rob Bishop (R-UT) introduced H.R. 2710, the "Lawful Purpose and Self Defense Act of 2015." This bill would remove BATFE's authority to interpret or reinterpret the "sporting purposes" clauses in federal law, which only serve to undermine the core purpose of the Second Amendment. Under Chairman Bishop’s legislation, all lawful purposes – including self-defense – would have to be given due consideration and respect in the administration of federal law.

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.

Alright! Sounds like a great bill to me. Let' hope and pray that it actually passes!
What part of "Shall not be infringed" is not being abused today!

Even Knights had "Modern" weapons!
