Arkansas: Pro-Gun Bills to Be Heard in Senate Judiciary Committee

Three pro-gun bills could be heard as early as today in the Arkansas Senate Judiciary Committee.  These pro-gun bills need your help!  It is critical that you contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee immediately in support of these bills.

House Bill 1372, introduced by state Representative David Meeks (R-70), would remove the absolute prohibition on carrying a concealed firearm on school property for private K-12 schools and allow those schools to establish policies regarding the scope of who may carry a concealed firearm on school property.

House Bill 1505, introduced by state Representative Michelle Gray (R-62), would remove the absolute prohibition on having a firearm in the vehicle while in certain public parking lots for individuals with a concealed handgun license.

The publicly owned and maintained parking lots must be accessible to the public, and includes those lots associated with public schools (K-12, colleges, community colleges, and universities), public buildings, the State Capitol and the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department.  License holders would no longer be prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm on their person while in their vehicle and present on the affected lots, and would not be prohibited from keeping the firearm locked in their unattended vehicle while parked in these public lots.

HB 1488, introduced by state Representative Tim Lemons (R-43), would require the chief law enforcement officer of a jurisdiction to certify the transfer or making of a firearm, as required by the National Firearms Act, within 15 days if the person is not prohibited from receiving or possessing a firearm by law.  HB 1488 also establishes that an applicant may appeal a denial to the circuit court. 

Please use the contact information provided below to call and email members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and politely urge them to support HB 1372, HB 1505 and HB 1488.
