REPORT ON  ROUND 15 **  SB 402 - Stop Local Governments from Violating Gun Rights

Senate Bill 402, introduced by state Senator Joe Negron (R-28) was heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, April 4 and PASSED by a 5 to 2 vote.

SB 402 would simply provide penalties for government officials, local governments and agencies that willfully and knowingly violate the state firearms preemption law.  State law prohibits local governments and government agencies from adopting any gun control ordinances or regulations.  There are some who are arrogantly violating the law because there are no penalties currently in the law.

REPORT ON  ROUND 16 **  SB 432 - STOP Doctors Violating Patients Gun Privacy Rights

Senate Bill 432, introduced by state Senator Greg Evers (R-2), was ALSO scheduled to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, April 4. Unfortunately, the committee got bogged down in other controversial bills and SB 432 was not heard. IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED.  We will notify you when it is rescheduled.

SB 432 is designed to make doctors practice medicine NOT practice gun ban politics in their examination rooms.  As a parent or a patient you have a right to protect your privacy about gun ownership.  How many guns you own and where they are stored is your personal private information.


REPORT ON  ROUND 17 **  HB 155 - STOP Doctors Violating Patients Gun Privacy Rights
