Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment and NICS Legislation Waiting to be Heard in the Kentucky Senate

Friday, February 18, 2011

Please contact your state Senator today!

Two important Second Amendment-related bills have passed the Kentucky House of Representatives and are waiting to be considered by the state Senate.  NRA-backed House Bill 1 is a Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment, while House Bill 308 would provide a pathway to restoring gun-rights.  

Sponsored by state Representative Leslie Combs (D-94) and House Speaker Greg Stumbo (D-95), HB 1 proposes an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution recognizing citizens’ right to hunt and fish.  It would provide truly meaningful protections against the animal rights activists who seek to ban all hunting in America.  The ultimate adoption of this constitutional amendment would preserve Kentucky’s rich hunting and fishing traditions for future generations.  This bill is expected to be heard by the Senate State and Local Government Committee at any time. 

HB 308 passed out of the state House on February 14, by a 97 to 1 vote.  Introduced by state Representative Bob Damron (D-39), HB 308 would implement the federal NICS Improvements Amendments Act, providing a pathway for the restoration of gun rights.

Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully ask him or her to bring up and support HB 1 without amendments and HB 308 prior to adjournment.  Contact information can be found here
