Arkansas: Two Pro-Gun Bills Introduced In the ‘Natural State’

Thursday, January 17, 2013

On Monday, January 14 the Arkansas General Assembly convened its 2013 legislative session and your NRA is committed to enacting several pro-gun reforms this year.  Our legislative agenda this year includes, but is not limited to, passing a Fraudulent Firearms Purchase Prevention law, enacting several Right-to-Carry reforms and protecting your inherent right to self-defense during a declared state of emergency.

Two pro-gun bills have already been introduced!

The first is Senate Bill 71, introduced by state Senator Bryan King (R-5), known as the Church Protection Act, would remove the absolute prohibition on Right-to-Carry permit holders carrying a concealed firearm into a church.  The second, House Bill 1035, introduced by state Representative Denny Altes (R-76), seeks to allow staff members of a university, college or community college to carry a concealed firearm on campus if the staff member has a valid Right-to-Carry permit.

Please contact your state Senator and Representative and urge him or her to support SB 71 and HB 1035.  Also, please encourage your state lawmakers to work with the NRA on additional legislation that would protect our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and hunting heritage!
