Please Contact Your State Senator Today!
Tuesday, January 8 was the first day of the 2008 legislative session and the State Senate Judiciary Committee wasted no time in considering pro-gun legislation. The Senate Judiciary Committee passed Senate Bill 23, authored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), by an 8-1 vote. SB23 allows a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm in a place where alcohol is served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.
This bill will now head to the Senate Calendar Committee where it will be assigned a date to be heard by the full Senate. Please contact your State Senator toll-free today at (800) 449-8366 and respectfully urge him or her to support this important piece of self-defense legislation.
