Tomorrow, March 28, the House Civil Justice Committee will hold a hearing to consider HB 508. It is imperative that you contact members of the House Civil Justice Committee and urge them to support HB 508. Please click the “Take Action” button to contact members of the committee!
House Bill 508, sponsored by Representative William Lamberth (R-44), would create a private cause of action for a party that is adversely affected by a local ordinance, resolution, policy, rule, or other enactment on firearms preempted by state law. This bill would prohibit local government entities from prohibiting or restricting firearms on local property unless certain conditions are met. Law-abiding citizens should not be placed in jeopardy of unintentionally violating local restrictions simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another. Gun owners continue to be unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearm preemption law.
