Arkansas General Assembly Convenes with Important Legislation Already Introduced!

Friday, January 16, 2009

The Arkansas General Assembly convened this week and NRA is already working hard with pro-gun and pro-hunting lawmakers to protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen. 

State Senator Steve Faris (D-27), one of the most strident pro-gun legislators in the General Assembly, has reintroduced the NRA-backed Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment, SJR 3.  Senator Faris has been working with NRA for several sessions to pass this critical amendment to the Constitution of the State of Arkansas, which would ensure that the right to hunt (as well as fish) will be protected for future generations.  SJR 3 is the culmination of years of hard work by Senator Faris and NRA, and we are committed to passing this amendment this year. 

Of course, we will be working on other areas to advance our Right to Keep and Bear Arms, including efforts to expand where Right-to-Carry permit holders may carry or transport their firearms, and we will be sure to keep the pro-gun community in Arkansas alerted to what they can do to help.  In the meantime, please contact your State Senator and State Representative and respectfully urge them to support SJR 3.  Contact information for your State Legislators can be found by clicking here.
