The House Judiciary Committee was scheduled to consider self-defense expansion legislation, Senate Bill 573, last week. The measure was delayed and will now be considered tomorrow. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT SB 573.
Senate Bill 573 clarifies existing law to prevent cities and municipalities from being able to create gun free zones in locations where they shouldn’t be allowed to. This legislation removes infringements placed on enhanced carry permit holders by deleting a loophole in State Law that technically allows cities to do so. However, this was not the intent of the law. SB 573 fixes that, and expands the rights of permit holders to carry in these areas.
Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 573.
