Please Contact the Members of the Senate Finance, Ways, and Means Committee!

Sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), SB3012 would enable a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense into restaurants where alcohol may be served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.  SB3012 is the companion bill to House Bill 3125. 

Please contact members of the Senate Finance, Ways, and Means Committee and urge them to support SB3012.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
