Arkansas: House Committee Expected to Hear Critical Self-Defense Legislation Tomorrow

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

House Bill 1819, an important reform to the Governor's Emergency Powers, is expected to be heard tomorrow in the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs Committee.  HB 1819, introduced by state Representative Charlotte Vining Douglas (R-75), would remove the ability of any Arkansas Governor to impose restrictions on the transfer or transportation of lawfully possessed firearms during a declared State of Emergency.  This committee is scheduled to meet tomorrow, at 10:00 AM in Room 151 of the State Capitol in Little Rock, so please attend to support HB 1819 if possible.

If you cannot attend, please contact members of the House State Agencies & Governmental Affairs Committee TODAY and urge them to support HB 1819.
