Firearms Heritage Act Gets 219th Cosponsor – Enough to Pass House

c/o theodoresworld.net

The Veterans’ Firearms Heritage Act, has gained the support and co-sponsorship of 219 members of the House – from both parties.  A majority vote in the House requires 218 votes.   Congressman Denny Rehberg’s legislation corrects a law that currently treats World War II and Korean War-era veterans like criminals for not registering war relic firearms with the federal government.

“This common sense bill has more than enough bipartisan support in the House to move it forward today,” said Rehberg, a member of the Second Amendment Task Force.  “It’s time for the House to act quickly and decisively.  These American heroes have been forced into the shadow of a poorly executed law for long enough.  In this case, justice delayed is truly justice denied.”

The Veterans’ Heritage Firearms Act will provide a limited amnesty for veterans who served overseas between 1934 and 1968.  During the amnesty period, veterans will be able to register war relic firearms without fear of prosecution. This amnesty also extends to the veteran’s lawful heirs who inherited these weapons.  If the veteran or heir chooses not to keep the weapon, the law would allow them to transfer the relic to a museum or collection without penalty in an effort to preserve these valuable pieces of America’s military history.
