Action is expected on the following pro-gun legislation this coming week:
House Bill 362, sponsored by State Representative Craig Ford (D-28), passed the House Commerce Committee by a unanimous vote a few weeks ago, but not before an anti-gun amendment was attached. HB362, as originally written, would protect your right to lawfully transport and store firearms in a privately-owned and locked motor vehicle while parked in publicly accessible parking lots controlled by your employer or a business you frequent.

HB 362 is expected to be heard this coming week.
Please contact your State Representative TODAY and respectfully urge them to remove the railroad exemption from HB362 and to oppose any further proposed exemptions. You can call your State Representative by calling (334) 242- 7600. For more contact information please click here.
Senate Bill 296 passed out of the House Judiciary Committee and now waits for a vote on the House floor. SB 296, sponsored by State Senator Scott Beason (R-17), would protect our Second Amendment rights by prohibiting any government agency from confiscating firearms or regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport or carry of firearms during a state of emergency.
House Bill 432 passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee and is currently waiting to be heard on the Senate Floor for a vote. Sponsored by State Representative Jack Page (D-29), HB432 would make all records pertaining to pistol permits confidential, only to be used for law enforcement purposes. Any public disclosure of this information would be a Class A misdemeanor.
Please contact your State Representatives TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote in favor of SB 296. You can reach your State Representative by calling (334) 242- 7600.
