North Dakota: Committee to Hear State of Emergency Protection Bill

Friday, March 22, 2013

Next Friday, March 29, House Bill 1467, important “Emergency Powers” protection legislation will be heard in the Senate Government and Veteran Affairs Committee.  This NRA-backed bill, introduced by state Representative Karen Karls (R-35), already passed in the House by a 76-17 vote on February 25. 

HB 1467 would prohibit the state or any government agency, during a declared state of emergency, from prohibiting or restricting the otherwise lawful possession, use, carrying, transfer, transportation, storage, or display of a firearm or ammunition; seizure or confiscation of a lawfully possessed firearm; or requiring registration of a firearm or ammunition for which registration is not otherwise required by law. 

This legislation would protect law-abiding citizens of North Dakota from experiencing a violation of their constitutional rights reminiscent of what occurred in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, where law-abiding citizens were stripped of their lawfully owned firearms by overzealous government officials leaving them defenseless and unable to protect their families and property. 

Please call members of the Senate Government and Veteran Affairs Committee and respectfully urge them to support this pro-Second Amendment bill.  Click on the links below to access contact information for the Committee members.

Senator Dick Dever (R-32), Chairman

Senator Spencer Berry (R-27), Vice Chairman

Senator Dwight Cook (R-34)

Senator Richard Marcellais (D-09)
