North Dakota: Two Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard Thursday

Monday, March 9, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

Two Pro-Gun bills, House Bill 1389 and House Bill 1348, are scheduled to be heard on Thursday March 12. 

HB 1389, will be heard by the Senate Political Subdivisions Committee. Sponsored by State Representative Karen Karls (R-35), this bill would allow all concealed carry permit holders to carry in public parks, including state parks. While the U.S. Department of the Interior recently changed its regulations to permit persons with concealed handgun licenses to possess and carry a firearm in National Parks and Wildlife Refuges, current North Dakota law prohibits permit holders from carrying in state parks.  HB 1389 would correct this problem and extend permit holders Second Amendment rights to state and public parks.

Please Contact the members of the Senate Political Subdivisions Committee listed below and respectfully urge them to support HB1389.

HB 1348, introduced by State Representative Duane DeKrey (R-14), will be heard in the Senate Government and Veterans Affairs Committee.  HB 1348 originally would have allowed concealed carry permit holders to carry on university campuses in North Dakota, removing such facilities from the prohibited list.  However, the bill was amended significantly in House action.  HB 1348 now addresses a different issue, instead focusing on a storage problem for students who were forced to check their firearms into security "storage lockers" which have become full.  The bill allows students to store their guns in campus apartments and parking lots.  The legislation does not deal with campus dorms or fraternity/sorority houses.   

Even though HB 1348 has been changed, it does however effectively address a storage problem that campuses across the state have been dealing with. 

Please contact the members of the Senate Government and Veterans Affairs Committee and voice your support for this necessary bill.
