    I received this email from another shooter, I thought I would just post it on here. It may be old news.....if so, please forgive me. I have been off trapshooters for sometime....life has been just too busy!

    I hope all will act on this who can, or should....

    "Ammunition Accountability Act

    Heads up to all of you who swore to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND domestic. Let your state Legislatures know that we do not want this bill passed, and petition them to vote no on this bill. We should keep after them until the bill is closed by bombarding them with e-mails, phone calls, and letters.

    Get to all your politicians to get to work and NOT LET THIS HAPPEN!!!

    The 2009 Legislative session has begun, and the Ammunition Accountability Act is being introduced across the country.

    Below is a list of states where legislation has already been introduced:

    Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington. The web-site lists each of the House Bills by state.


    Remember how Obama said that he wasn't going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his minions and allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

    The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacture, a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009unless the ammunition is coded.

    Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011. (Including handloaded ammo.) They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

    If they can deprive you of ammo, they do not need to take your gun!

    Please give this the widest distribution possible and,

    Contact Your Reps!"

    This would take many out of our sport......we need to do what we can to defend our rights now....
