Thanks to your action, House Bill 2474 passed out of the House Caucus without any hostile amendments. The bill is now stronger than ever thanks to an NRA-supported amendment.
Sponsored by State Representatives John Kavanagh (R-8) and Frank Antenori (R-30), HB2474 would permit a law-abiding individual to store their firearms in their locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by their employer or a business they frequent. This bill will protect your right to keep a firearm in your car if you choose to hunt or target shoot before or after work. HB2474 would also allow an individual to keep a firearm in their vehicle for self-defense during their commute to and from work.
HB2474 can no longer be amended. It will be up for a final vote in the House early next week.
Thank you for all of your support but the fight is not over yet! Please continue to contact your State Representatives and respectfully urge them to vote YES on HB2474. To find contact information for your State Representatives, please click here.
