Arkansas: Two Pro-Gun Bills Expected to be Heard on Tuesday, February 8 in Little Rock!

Friday, February 4, 2011

House Bill 1051, the open carry bill introduced by state Representative Denny Altes (R-63), was not heard this week in the House Judiciary Committee.  The bill is now expected to be heard next week, and is scheduled for Tuesday, February 8.  This committee meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m., in Room 149 of the State Capitol in Little Rock.

The NRA supports this legislation, which would remove the current restriction on openly carrying a handgun for personal protection, and we thank Rep. Altes for working to make a good bill even better with recent amendments.

Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support HB 1051. For a listing of members of the House Judiciary Committee, please click here.  For contact information, simply click on the name of the member you wish to contact.

In addition, Senate Bill 115, introduced by state Senator Bill Sample (R-19), is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Committee on City, County and Local Affairs, also on Tuesday, Feb. 8.  This legislation would prohibit a unit of local government from imposing restrictions on the transfer, transportation, or carrying of firearms during a declared state of emergency.  The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. in Room 272 of the State Capitol.

Please contact members of the Senate City, County and Local Affairs Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 115. Contact information can be found below.
