Next Friday, March 29, House Bill 1467, important “Emergency Powers” protection legislation will be heard in the Senate Government and Veteran Affairs Committee. This NRA-backed bill, introduced by state Representative Karen Karls (R-35), already passed in the House by a 76-17 vote on February 25.
HB 1467 would prohibit the state or any government agency, during a declared state of emergency, from prohibiting or restricting the otherwise lawful possession, use, carrying, transfer, transportation, storage, or display of a firearm or ammunition; seizure or confiscation of a lawfully possessed firearm; or requiring registration of a firearm or ammunition for which registration is not otherwise required by law.
This legislation would protect law-abiding citizens of North Dakota from experiencing a violation of their constitutional rights reminiscent of what occurred in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, where law-abiding citizens were stripped of their lawfully owned firearms by overzealous government officials leaving them defenseless and unable to protect their families and property.
