There's a bill in Congress right now to reauthorize the 1994 Violence Against Women Act, which is set to expire. There are provisions in this bill to expand the Lautenberg Amendment domestic-violence gun disqualification to include (a) dating partners and (b) stalkers, as well as enable disqualification because of temporary domestic-violence restraining orders in addition to permanent orders. (This would affect lines 11.h and 11.i on the Form 4473.) The NRA has come out against this bill because of the lack of adequate due process in these new provisions. A vote for the bill will negatively affect the member's NRA rating. (BTW, the NRA supported previous reauthorizations of the VAWA.) Still, practically the entire Republican caucus would have to vote the NRA's way in order to kill this bill. That's highly unlikely. Is the NRA making a futile gesture, just to bolster its pro-gun bona fides among its own members?
