Counter Chinese Government Political Influence Operations: Cosponsor HR 1811

Help Protect Law Enforcement

Please help to protect law enforcement officers and our communities by cosponsoring H.R. 1297, the Law Enforcement Protection Act (LEPA). This act will close a dangerous loophole in the National Firearms Act (NFA) by adding armor-piercing, concealable weapons
