Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed Senate Bill 24 by a 6-3 vote. Sponsored by state Senator Gerald Allen (R-21), SB 24 would enable a law-abiding adult to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense without a government-issued permit. SB 24 now heads to the Senate floor where it will await full consideration. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support this important self-defense legislation.
Senate Bill 24 recognizes an individual’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses. Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.
