Please Contact the Members of the Senate Committee on Local Government!

Today, the Senate Committee on Local Government will consider two anti-gun bills, Senate Bill 832 and Senate Bill 1053.

SB832, introduced by State Senator Maime Locke (D-2), would ban firearms in any building owned or operated by a locality (such as a recreation center, administrative building, or public library) while any official governmental meetings are being held inside.

Authored by State Senator Mary Margaret Whipple (D-31), SB1053 would give localities the authority to outlaw firearms in any buildings or facilities used for governmental purposes.
