Urgent: Time Is Running Out For Pro-Gun Bills in Kentucky!

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Please Contact Senate Leadership and the Senate Judiciary Committee Immediately!

 

Unfortunately, the legislature is playing party politics in Frankfort and numerous pro-gun bills may fail unless they are considered immediately. There are only two legislative days left to consider these pro-gun bills, so it is critical that the Senate consider them today.

 

HB 419:  The Senate Judiciary will meet one final time today during recess today to discuss one bill and it is critical that they take up today HB 419.  Please contact Senate Leadership and Senate Judiciary Committee members immediately and ask them to take up HB 419 today. Ask them to attach the NRA-backed amendment and send it to the full Senate for consideration.  The NRA-backed amendment would strip HB 419 of its original language and would require Universities to comply with current Kentucky Code allowing gun owners to keep their firearms in a locked vehicle on public and private property.

 

HB 358: This bill is expected to be heard on the Senate floor as early as today, March 12.  HB 358 contains the original language from HB 419. This bill would permit citizens to carry firearms for self-defense while engaged in hunting, fishing, trapping, and other activities, and would clarify that citizens may do what is necessary for self-defense in the case of a wild animal attack, without fear of unjustified prosecution.   Please contact your State Senator and urge them SUPPORT HB 358 with further no amendments.  

 

HB 55:  Sponsored by Robert Damron, HB 55 would bring Kentucky into compliance with the federal “Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act,” relative to the carrying of firearms by qualified and retired law enforcement officers.   HB 55 is also expected to be heard on the Senate floor as early as today, March 12.  Please contact your State Senator and urge him or her to SUPPORT HB 55.

 

Please contact Senate leadership and members of the Senate Judiciary committee immediately and ask them to take up HB 419 with the NRA-backed amendment. 

 

Also, please contact your State Senator and urge him or her to SUPPORT HB 419 with the NRA-backed amendment, HB 358 with further no amendments and HB 55.  For contact information or help identifying your State Senator, please click here.
