It is important that you contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to work with NRA on making HB 1249 a true campus carry bill!
Your NRA-ILA continues to support the amendment offered by state Senator Linda Collins-Smith (R-19) that would make HB 1249 a true campus carry bill, so please contact your state Senator and ask them to support this amendment! Further, if your state Senator voted to re-refer HB 1249 to the Senate Judiciary Committee, please thank them for not supporting a flawed bill, and for taking the appropriate step to ensure this bill is improved.

Our goal is to make public college and university campuses safer by removing restrictions on law-abiding citizens carrying firearms on those campuses. Rest assured, NRA-ILA will be back every year until the Legislature passes and the Governor signs a true campus carry bill that doesn’t impose excessive training requirements or place arbitrary age restrictions on who can protect themselves on college and university campuses in Arkansas. Whether they are employees, students, or visitors, those who have already gone through the process of obtaining an Arkansas Concealed Handgun Carry License (CHCL), which requires taking a course in the safe handling of firearms, should be trusted to act as safely and responsibly on public college and university campuses as they do throughout the rest of Arkansas.
Again, it is vital that you click the “Take Action” button to contact the Senate Judiciary Committee and your state Senator. Stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on this bill.
