U.S. House Passes Sportsmen’s Act

posted on March 1, 2016

An important piece of federal legislation that would greatly benefit sportsmen has passed the U.S. House of Representatives and is headed to the U.S. Senate for consideration. 

On Friday, a bipartisan majority in the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act of 2015. The goal of the legislation is to promote America’s heritage of hunting, fishing and recreational shooting; this year’s version would enhance access to public lands for these pursuits, protect the right of self-defense, and curtail punitive regulations promoted by “animal rights” activists and environmental extremists. 

As NRA-ILA noted in a recent grassroots alert, the House passed similar legislation the past two years, but both times it stalled in the Senate. Hopefully the third time will be a charm for the important legislative package.
