20120501_Untitled33If you’ve read SCI’s alerts about the recent changes in the process for bringing your firearms with you to hunt out of the country, you know how burdensome these changes will be for the international hunter. Whether you are flying with your firearms to Africa, Canada, South America or Australia or elsewhere, these new requirements will pose problems for you.  Now is the time to do something about it.

As an SCI member, you have the perfect opportunity to tell Congress why the new firearms exportation requirements don’t work for hunters.  Join SCI members from around the country in our annual Lobby Day activities. Tell your elected representatives that the Departments of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection have burdened hunters with confusing, inconsistently implemented and illegal obligations for  traveling with firearms out of the United States.

SCI needs your voice.  Make the trip to Washington, DC on Thursday May 7, 2015 to attend SCI’s Lobby Day on Capitol Hill. SCI is in the process of scheduling hundreds of meetings with Congressional Offices in order to give you the opportunity to personally express your opposition to the excessive and unnecessary firearms exportation requirements.

To register for SCI’s Lobby Day, click HERE or use the link below. Once you’ve registered, a member of SCI’s staff will contact you with further details.

The administration has clearly decided that we are a group to be targeted with unnecessary regulatory burdens. You need to be with us on May 7 th, 2015 to oppose this unfair treatment. If you cannot make it, we hope you can spread the message to others to attend on behalf of hunters everywhere. Let’s be sure to make SCI’s voice is heard in Washington, DC.

SCI Celebrates An Early Victory In the Fight Against Firearms Export Registration Requirements

The efforts of SCI, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the National Rifle Association and others met with success on April 23, 2015 when Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reversed their decision to implement changes to the procedural requirements for hunters and recreational shooters wishing to travel abroad with their firearms.  At a budget hearing held before the House Committee on Appropriations, R. Gil Kerlikowske, Commissioner of CBP, announced that the agency would temporarily return to the paper process used for years by international hunters and recreational shooters.  In response to questions posed by members of the Committee, Mr. Kerlikowske explained that CBP would temporarily withdraw its requirement that hunters and shooters, who wish to take their firearms out of the country, register their firearms in the Automated Export System (AES).  Mr. Kerlikowske informed the Appropriations Committee that CBP would be modifying its website later in the day to reflect this change in position.  Please refer to this link for additional information about the hearing.SCI will continue to pursue a long-term solution to this issue.  Today’s decision provides only a temporary fix to a broader concern.  The recently proposed (and just aborted) changes to the exportation of firearms comply with regulations, adopted in 2012, that require electronic registration.  SCI is working with NSSF, NRA and others to propose revisions to these problematic rules.

Please continue to follow SCI communications for further developments on this issue.
