Update: Action Needed on Gun Control Bill Headed to Arkansas House Floor Despite Strong Opposition

Despite overwhelming opposition from their constituents and Second Amendment supporters across Arkansas, the House Judiciary Committee passed an amended version of Senate Bill 724.  SB 724 would undermine some of the key concealed carry advancements made with the recent passage and enactment of House Bill 1249.  SB 724 will be considered on the House floor TOMORROW!

It is imperative that you contact your state Representative IMMEDIATELY with your strong opposition to this bill!

Time is of the essence!  Please click the “TAKE ACTION” button above to contact your state Representative in opposition to SB 724!

SB 724 seeks to amend several sections of the newly enacted House Bill 1249, which was signed into law by Governor Asa Hutchinson on March 23.  This bill, after being amended, adds public teaching hospitals and college sporting events to the list of places where licensees with the enhanced carry permit would still be prohibited from carrying.

Representative Ballinger offered an amendment in an attempt to fix this anti-gun bill and it was adopted by the House Judiciary Committee.  Unfortunately, this amendment falls far short and creates additional problems for law-abiding gun owners in Arkansas by allowing any “collegiate athletic event,” to simply designate “firearm-sensitive areas” to prohibit carry.   This language is so broad, that it may encompass an entire campus and creates a trap to ensnare law-abiding gun owners, who are simply trying to provide for their own personal safety.  Despite thousands of emails from Second Amendment supporters, the House Judiciary Committee chose to follow in the Senate’s misguided steps.

Prohibited places would be able to employ vague prohibited postings, with the consequence of everyday concealed carry permit holders being charged with a class A misdemeanor.  

Tell your state Representative that law-abiding gun owners deserve to enjoy the benefits of HB 1249!  Let them know that this bill does not reflect the opinion of law-abiding gun owners in their district!  Again, click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative in opposition to SB 724.  Stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on this bill.​
