SB 12, sponsored by Senator Katie Kratz Stine (R-24) and Senator Damon Thayer (R-17), is still in the Senate and must move very soon in order to have a chance to pass the Legislature this session. This bill prohibits the prosecution of gun owners who unknowingly wander onto property owned by a public or private school if it is not properly posted pursuant to current law. If a school ignores this legal requirement, gun owners may still be prosecuted for a felony when possessing a firearm on the property. Please call your State Senator and ask him or her to help to ensure that this bill is made a legislative priority.
HB 35, which is the companion bill to SB 12, is pending in the House Education Committee. Please call your State Representative and ask him or her to support HB 35 sponsored by Representative Marie Rader (R-89).
SB 38, the Senate’s “Castle Doctrine” bill, sponsored by Senator Richard Roeding (R-11), passed the Senate Judiciary Committee and will move to the Senate floor for a vote. Please call your State Senator and ask that he or she support SB 38. Legislators can be reached by calling (502) 564-8100.
