The Fate of Two Pro-Gun Bills Rests in the Hands of the Kentucky State Senate Leadership!

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

Contact Senate Leadership Today!

Unfortunately, the Kentucky legislature played party politics in Frankfort the last two days of the working session and two pro-gun bills may have failed as a result. Thursday, March 26 and Friday, March 27 are the only two legislative days left after the veto session to consider these pro-gun bills, so it is critical that Senate Leadership hear from you today.

Please contact Senate Leadership and respectfully urge them to take up House Bill 419 on Thursday, March 26.  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.

Also, please respectfully urge Senate Leadership to bring HB 358 with no additional amendments to the floor for consideration by the full Senate.  HB358 has been amended to contain the original language from HB 419.  This bill would now 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.      

At this time all legislators are back and forth between the capitol and their districts, so please take the time to use all the contact information listed below.
