Mississippi: Join House Speaker Philip Gunn at a Town Hall Event Near You and Thank Him for His Role in HB 2 Becoming Law

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Between October 7-10, Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn will be conducting a listening tour across the state, seeking input on a wide range of issues from concerned citizens, including Mississippi gun owners and sportsmen.  Speaker Gunn has always been a staunch supporter of our Second Amendment rights.  Most recently, he provided critical leadership to ensure passage of NRA-backed House Bill 2 through the state House of Representatives.  He subsequently signed an amicus “friend of the court” brief filed with the Mississippi Supreme Court in support of that law after a misguided legal challenge was brought by its opponents.  The high court ultimately dismissed the lawsuit against HB 2, clarifying that law-abiding citizens may legally carry partially-visible, holstered firearms for personal protection in the Magnolia State.

Please attend one of the events near you and thank Speaker Gunn for standing up for our Second Amendment rights and for his critical role in supporting this important NRA-backed measure through the legislative and legal processes.  RSVP by clicking on the event location below.
