Arkansas: Pro-Gun Bills Advance in Legislature

Yesterday, Senate Bill 612 passed the Arkansas Senate on a 26 to 3 vote, and is now awaiting consideration in the Arkansas House.  SB 612, introduced by state Senator Jon Woods (R-7), seeks to remove the restriction on law-abiding, permanent U.S. residents who are not citizens from obtaining an Arkansas concealed handgun license.  Please contact your state Representative  and urge him or her to vote in support of SB 612 when it comes before them.  

In addition, House Bill 1432, introduced by state Representative Jeff Wardlaw (D-8), passed out of the House yesterday on a 73 to 17 vote.  This legislation removes the absolute prohibition on concealed handgun license (CHL) holders carrying their concealed handgun onto the property of any polling place.  Those property owners who still wish to prohibit CHL holders from lawfully carrying firearms at polling places on property under their control will still be permitted to post their property.  HB 1432 has now been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Please use the contact information provided below to call and email members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and politely urge them to support HB 1432.
