Default Urgent! Itís Time to Call and Write the Governor On SB 819!

SB 819 passed out of the Assembly and onto the governorís desk. This is our last chance to defeat SB 819! Please call, write, and/or email the governor and urge a VETO on SB 819. Contact information for the governorís office is included below.

SB 819 Ė Redirection of Dealer Record of Sales Fee (DROS)

CRPA Position: Oppose

SB 819 would allow the state Department of Justice (DOJ) to raid the DROS and take "excessĒ money to pay for local enforcement of laws related to firearms possession. The primary purpose of the DROS fee paid by every firearms purchaser is to fund the purchaser background checks performed by the Department of Justice. DROS fund fees are a fee for service and should be used for their intended purpose: background checks. The concern is that the DROS fund will be depleted and soon require an increased DROS fee for all firearms purchasers.

CRPA and NRA are working hard to defeat SB 819 from every angle. In addition to lobbying efforts, a law suit has also been filed by CRPA and NRA to block the illegal use of DROS fees as proposed by SB 819.

We need your help defeat SB 819 now. Use the collective power of your CRPA membership and take action now. Make your voice heard at the state capitol! Donít let anti-gun legislation disassemble your firearms rights piece by piece!
