Kentucky Pro-Gun Legislation Needs Your Help, Today!

Thursday, March 22, 2007

 

Please Contact Members of the Senate!

 

Time is running out in the Bluegrass State for two important pieces of pro-gun legislation.  The Kentucky Legislature will adjourn “Sine Die” on Tuesday, March 27 and House Bill 354 and House Bill 469 are still stuck in Senate Committees.  Your State Senator and members of the committees listed below need to hear from you today!


House Bill 469, sponsored by State Representative Robert Damron (D-39), would clarify that Kentucky residents may purchase firearms in contiguous states provided they are eligible to do so under federal and state law; specify that out-of-state residents may purchase or otherwise acquire firearms in Kentucky if the purchase is legal under federal and state law; specify that persons who are legal residents of the United States may purchase or otherwise acquire firearms in Kentucky if the purchase is legal under federal and state law.  HB 469 passed the House with a 93-3 vote but is now being held up in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
