To restore the prohibition on the commercial sale and slaughter of wild free-roaming horses and burros.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
SECTION 1. SALE OF WILD FREE-ROAMING HORSES AND BURROS.
(a) In General- Section 3(d)(5) of Public Law 92-195 (16 U.S.C. 1333(d)(5)) is amended--
(1) by striking the period and inserting the following: `Provided, That no wild free-roaming horse or burro or its remains may be sold or transferred for consideration for processing into commercial products.'; and
(2) by striking subsection (e).
(b) Criminal Provisions- Section (8)(a)(4) of Public Law 92-195 (16 U.S.C. 1338(a)(4)) is amended by striking `except as provided in section 3(e),'.
HR 297 provides, in the form of grants, about $1 billion to the states to send more names to the FBI for inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System [NICS]. If you are thinking, "Oh, I’ve never committed a felony, so this bill won't affect me," then you had better think again. If this bill becomes law, you and your adult children will come closer to losing your gun rights than ever before.

I don't understand how spending more money to "Fix" a bad law that does not work in the first place, is a good idea.
