On Monday, February 6, the Mississippi House of Representatives approved House Bill 1141, an NRA-backed measure sponsored by Representative Warner McBride (D-10). HB 1141 will allow the owner of a property that has been annexed by a county or municipality to continue hunting on certain-sized tracts of land even if the city has a ban on the discharge of firearms. HB 1141 also contains a provision, which would prohibit New Orleans-style gun confiscations from law-abiding citizens during a future state of emergency or natural disaster.
The House also approved a floor amendment, which contains language from HB 1059, a bill that died in committee the previous week. This amendment will allow employees to transport and store firearms in locked personal vehicles while parked on property owned by their employers.
HB 1141 now moves to the Senate for consideration. Please contact your State Senators at (601) 359-3770 and ask him or her to support the NRA-backed HB 1141 with the employee parking lot amendment. For additional contact information, please visit http://www.mississippi.gov/index.jsp.
