Omnibus Spending Bill, H.R. 3354, Passes House and Provides Funding for Federal Firearms Relief Determinations – IN SENATE

Once again the House omnibus appropriations bill, H.R. 3354, provides funding for ATF to conduct federal firearms relief determinations under 18 U.S.C. § 925(c). Since 1992, Congress has specifically denied ATF the ability to utilize any funds they are appropriated to conduct these determinations. Further, ATF will not allow an individual to fund their own hearing, rendering a person’s options for relief at the federal level limited to Second Amendment as-applied challenges and/or presidential pardons.

It is important that you contact your Senators immediately and demand they pass the bill with the funding for federal firearms relief determinations in the final language.

If this bill were to pass with funding reinstated for the program, thousands of individuals who are currently prohibited may be able to once again exercise their Second Amendment rights.

    The old Irish saying it an ill wind that doesn’t blow someone some good might apply here. I hear they are trying shove “Fix NICS” into a spending bill WITHOUT “National Reciprocity” added. Bummer.
    Then again Obama got rid of the CLEO signature on Forms One and Four so you never know what can happen.

    It’s not *just* the ATF’s opinion that someone may not self-fund their hearing. The Anti-Deficiency Act would appear to cover that case as well, I’d think?

    I saw hr 3354 passed the Senate. Does it have the funding for the relief of disabilities?
