NRA-Opposed bills in the House:

HB 1328: Would expand the so-called “safe” storage law to add new restrictions that would make it more difficult for law-abiding gun owners to lawfully keep firearms for self-defense in the home.

HB 1253: Would outlaw certain established practices for training dogs used for hunting.

HB 1428: Would allow counties to enact restrictions on hunting deer with dogs.

NRA-Opposed bills in the Senate:

SB 515/SB 739: Would outlaw certain established practices for training dogs used for hunting.

There are other bills NRA is currently analyzing, including legislation that may negatively impact anyone who uses dogs while hunting.  2009 promises to be a very busy year for those concerned about their Right to Keep and Bear Arms and hunting heritage.
