Yesterday, NRA-supported Senate Bill 286 was debated on the Senate floor for a few hours. After consideration and votes on multiple amendments, this omnibus pro-gun legislation passed with overwhelming support by a 28 to 5 vote. This pro-gun legislation will now go to the state House of Representatives where it may face some challenges. Now is the time to contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support this important legislation.
The NRA thanks the sponsors of SB 286, state senators Scott Beason (R-17) and Roger Bedford (D-6), for their hard and successful work on this bill. The NRA also thanks the state senators who voted in support of this pro-Second Amendment measure. While this legislation made it through the Senate, there is much work to be done in the state House. It is critical that you make your voice heard! Please contact your state Representative and ask him or her to support SB 286. Contact information for your state legislator can be found here.
