Today, the House Judiciary Committee passed self-defense expansion legislation, Senate Bill 573. The measure now heads to the House floor where it could receive a vote as early as tomorrow. Please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 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.
It is important that you please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 573.
