Arkansas: Campus Carry Bill to be Considered by House Committee Tomorrow

House Bill 1077, an NRA-supported bill that seeks to allow staff members of public colleges and universities with valid Right to Carry permits to carry a firearm for personal protection while on school property, will be considered tomorrow in the House Committee on EducationThis bill will face a tough vote in Committee, so it is imperative that you immediately contact members of the House Committee on Education and urge them to support HB 1077. 

“Gun-free zones” only disarm law-abiding citizens and serve as an egregious infringement of an individual’s Second Amendment rights, and do nothing to prevent individuals' intent on committing crimes from doing so.  Passage of HB 1077 would be the first step towards restoring a fundamental right to self-defense, regardless of one’s location. 

If you are able to attend tomorrow's House Committee on Education meeting, it will be he held at 10:00 A.M. in Room 138 of the State Capitol in Little Rock. 

In the meantime, please urge your friends and family to attend the meeting and use the below contact information to contact members of the House Committee on Education, urging them to support this important bill that will advance our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
