65 House Democrats signed a letter to Holder letting him know they do NOT support his effort to reinstate the gun ban. Holder should now more than ever understand that any effort on his part to reinstate the failed gun ban would be fruitless at best, and a political disaster for both himself & President Obama at worst.

Today in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, 65 Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, led by Congressman Mike Ross (D-AR), expressed their opposition to the reinstatement of the failed 1994 ban on semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines. These congressmen cited numerous studies that proved the 1994 ban was ineffective, and they strongly urged Attorney General Holder to stop his effort and instead focus on the enforcement of existing gun laws.
NRA would like to thank Congressman Ross for his leadership on this effort. We will continue to work with Members of Congress from both parties on this important issue.
