Contact your state Representative in support of Senate Bill 308

Yesterday, a critical self-defense bill, Senate Bill 308, passed in the House Judiciary Committee.  S. 308, introduced by state Senator Sean Bennett (R-38), would remove the prohibition on a Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) holder carrying a concealed firearm into a restaurant licensed to serve alcohol.  Under S. 308, a CWP holder would still be prohibited from consuming alcohol while in the restaurant if he or she is carrying a concealed firearm for personal protection.

S. 308 is now eligible for consideration on the House floor.  With only a couple of weeks left in the 2013 legislative session, it is critical you contact your state Representative NOW and urge him or her to take up this important restaurant carry bill.  Click here for help identifying your state Representative.
