Mississippi Update on Pro-Gun Legislation!

Friday, March 3, 2006

This week, the House approved SB 2426, the NRA-backed "Castle Doctrine" and self-defense law reform bill sponsored by Senators Charlie Ross (R-Brandon) and Ralph Doxey (R- Holly Springs). SB 2426 now moves back to the Senate, which is expected to agree with the House amendments and send the bill to Governor Haley Barbour's (R) desk.

Also this week, the Senate approved HB 1141, NRA supported legislation which contains language (1) allowing hunting to continue on minimum-sized land tracts which are annexed by a city or county (even if that locality bans the discharge of firearms); (2) prohibiting local officials from confiscating lawfully- possessed firearms during a natural disaster; and (3) permitting employees, under certain circumstances, to transport and store firearms in their locked private vehicles while parked on property controlled by their employer. HB 1141 now moves back to the House and the House must agree to Senate amendments to the bill before it can go to Governor Barbour. Trial lawyers in the House may argue against agreeing to a Senate amendment, which gives companies that comply with the provisions of the bill a certain degree of immunity from liability.

It is critical that you contact your State Representative next week (beginning after lunch on Monday when they return from weekend recess) and urge them to VOTE TO CONCUR with the Senate amendments to HB 1141. Let them know that a vote to send the bill to a "conference committee" to work out differences between the House and Senate versions is a vote to defeat the bill. Please forward this alert to at least five other gun owners and sportsmen you know. HB 1141 is the most comprehensive piece of legislation to protect Mississippi gun owners and sportsmen in recent memory, and we need to move this bill across the goal line with all its provisions intact - not allow the bill to be carved up by trial lawyers and gun control advocates in a conference committee!
