Arkansas: Pro-Gun Legislation Receives Final Passage, Heads to Governor

Today, Senate Bill 159 received final passage in the Arkansas House of Representatives by a 74 to 3 vote, after passing in the Arkansas Senate on March 24 by a 33 to 1 vote.  It was returned to the Senate, where it is expected to be transmitted to Governor Asa Hutchinson (R) for his consideration and signature.  Introduced by Senator Linda Collins-Smith (R-19), SB 159 would remove the absolute prohibition on carrying a concealed firearm into a county courthouse for employees who have a concealed handgun license. 

Yesterday, two additional pro-gun bills also received final passage in the Arkansas House of Representatives and were transmitted to the Governor.

House Bill 1505, introduced by state Representative Michelle Gray (R-62), would remove the prohibition on having a firearm in a vehicle while in certain public parking lots for individuals with a concealed handgun license.  The House unanimously concurred with the Senate’s changes yesterday after the Senate passed HB 1505 on March 27 by a 33 to 1 vote.  HB 1505 originally passed in the House on March 12 by a 68 to 9 vote.

House Bill 1240, introduced by state Representative Dwight Tosh (R-52), would strengthen the civil immunity statute to protect a person from civil damages stemming from an incident when he or she lawfully uses deadly physical force in self-defense or in defense of another person.  The House unanimously concurred with the Senate’s changes yesterday after the Senate passed HB 1240 on March 27 by a 26 to 2 vote.  HB 1240 originally passed in the House unanimously on March 17. 

Please contact Governor Hutchinson by email here and politely ask him to sign SB 159, HB 1505 and HB 1240 into law.
