This week, the House is expected to vote on pro-firearm related legislation. Use the “Take Action” button below to contact your state representative and encourage their support of HB 2840, HB 2827, and HB 2551.
House Bill 2840 allows law-abiding citizens to store their loaded firearms in their locked personal vehicles while parked on school grounds. This ensures that parents are able to pick-up and drop-off students without first having to stop and unload their firearms before driving onto school grounds, or deviating from their route to park off campus. So called “gun-free zones” are arbitrary boundaries that only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless while doing nothing to deter criminals.
House Bill 2827 prohibits financial institutions from discriminating against firearm businesses. Anti-gun banks and their executives have expressed interest in denying services to the firearm industry as a way to further their political agenda and impose gun control by making such business impossible when legislatures won’t bend to their will. This bill requires banks to evaluate firearm businesses like any other business and to consider financial risk, rather than ideology, in their decisions on providing services.
House Bill 2551 expands areas where concealed carry permit holders can lawfully carry concealed firearms to include certain public establishments and events.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT House Bills 2840, 2827, and 2551.
