Two Pro-Gun Bills in Mississippi Need Your Help!

Monday, January 12, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

State Senator Merle Flowers (R-19) has introduced two NRA-backed bills so far this session, both of which have been referred to the Senate Judiciary B Committee. 

In 2006 after Hurricane Katrina, the Mississippi Legislature amended the state's firearms preemption law to prevent cities and counties from interfering with the lawful transportation and possession of firearms in one's home, vehicle, or place of business during a state of emergency or natural disaster.  This year, Senator Flowers has introduced SB 2036, which amends the state's emergency powers laws to create additional Second Amendment protections for law-abiding citizens during a future crisis.  

Senator Flowers has also filed SB 2306, which repeals a prohibition in the state's Right-to-Carry law on permit holders possessing handguns in parks. The current statute makes no distinction between national, and state or local parks.  Unless this bill passes, permit holders in Mississippi and reciprocal states will not benefit from the recent rule change adopted by the Department of Interior allowing them to carry in national parks located within the state's boundaries.

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary B Committee and your State Senator TODAY and respectfully urge them to support both SB 2036 and SB 2306!  Contact information for the Senate Judiciary B Committee can be found below.  Please click here to find contact information for your State Senator.
