Thanks to John Ewald for sharing this info. Unfortunately, enough signatures were not collected to move the petition forward. With this info, hopefully we will be ready to assist in a future effort.
We petition the obama administration to:
Amend the “Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act of 2004” HR218 to allow use of standard capacity magazines
The “Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act of 2004” (“LEOSA”, “HR 218” or the “Right to Carry” law) was intended to allow active and qualified retired law enforcement officers (“LEO”) to carry concealed weapons nationwide without having to obtain permits from each individual state or locality.
Due to many recent significant changes in individual State laws, specifically relating to magazine capacity, an amendment to LEOSA is again needed. Amend LEOSA to allow active and qualified retired LEO the right to carry any standard capacity ammunition magazine without restriction(s) to the number of rounds per magazine as may be limited by individual State laws not otherwise banned by Federal law.
The amendment will prevent prosecutions of qualified retired LEO legally carrying a weapon under LEOSA
