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.
