Arkansas: Contact Members of the House Judiciary Committee Today in Support of House Bill 1408

Monday, February 25, 2013

House Bill 1408, introduced by state Representative Sue Scott (R-95), is scheduled to be heard in the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow, February 26.  This common sense pro-gun reform would simply add open carry to the methods in which a current Concealed Handgun Carry License (CHCL) holder may carry his personal protection handgun.  While most license holders would likely continue to carry their handguns concealed, HB 1408 would eliminate any potential problems a license holder may encounter should a concealed firearm accidentally become exposed.  It would also allow for licensees to remove a jacket during hot weather without running afoul of the current concealed carry statute, should that action cause a handgun to become exposed.

Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and urge them to support HB 1408.
