Federal Measure Would Protect Veterans

posted on July 6, 2017

NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action is reporting that a measure introduced last week by U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and U.S. Rep. David P. Roe, R-Tenn., would help protect veterans.

Pending as S. 1435 and H.R. 3054, the measures create a 180-day amnesty period for veterans or their family members to register historic war mementos that would be considered regulated firearms under the National Firearms Act (NFA).  

Members of the U.S. Armed Forces serving overseas in combat zones have over the years brought home a variety of mementos from their deployments, some that would require registration and a special tax under the NFA. Yet veterans or their relatives or heirs who wish to dispossess themselves of them could face criminal prosecution for their possession, which is what these bills seek to remedy.
