U.S. Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) are urgently seeking cosponsors for the "Veterans' Heritage Firearms Act" -- S. 798 in the Senate and H.R. 420 in the House.

The legislation would provide a limited amnesty period for veterans who served overseas before 1968. During the amnesty period, the veterans would be able to register war relic firearms that are subject to the National Firearms Act, without fear of prosecution. This amnesty would also extend to veterans' family members who may have inherited these firearms.
