Got this in an email from the VFW and was wonder what impact it may have on TFA members who have firearms inherited from a veteran.
3. Veterans Heritage Firearms Act: The VFW is supporting the Veterans Heritage Firearms Act (S. 798), which was introduced by Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) to allow veterans to register firearms they legally brought home from war many years ago, or bequeathed to their decedents as family heirlooms. The bipartisan measure would open a 90-day window for owners to register weapons that were acquired outside the continental U.S. between June 26, 1934, and Oct. 31, 1968. Said VFW National Commander Richard DeNoyer, "We thank Senator Tester and all his bill supporters for helping to preserve the American right of gun ownership, and for ending a registration dilemma many families may have faced. Now they can proudly and legally keep their family heirlooms in the family."
