SB 95, sponsored by Senator Albert Robinson (R-21), passed unamended by the Senate by a vote of 33-4. This critical legislation closes a judicially-created "loophole" in the state`s 1984 preemption law that allows local governments to discriminate against licensed gun dealers and manufacturers through the use of their zoning laws. SB 95 requires local governments to treat dealers and manufacturers in the same manner as they do all other businesses. The bill is now headed to the House for consideration. Please contact your State Representative and request that he support SB 95.
