On Thursday, March 3 the Senate Natural Resources Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 152. This NRA-backed legislation would allow person’s licensed to carry a concealed firearm to lawfully carry a firearm with them while hunting. Current law restricts possession during bow season and limits handgun possession to certain legal hunting calibers, effectively prohibiting anyone from carrying a firearm for self-defense. SB 152 would correct a flaw in the law and make the statutes more uniform.
Please contact the members of the Senate Natural Resources Committee today and respectfully urge them to support SB 152.
