House Bill 1462, to ensure law-abiding citizens may carry firearms for self-defense on public transit, has been referred to the House General Laws Committee. Please contact committee members and ask them to SCHEDULE HB 1462 for a hearing and to SUPPORT it.
House Bill 1462 removes the prohibition on law-abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-defense on public transit property and in vehicles. In addition, it allows law-abiding citizens to transport unloaded or non-functioning firearms on buses. This bill repeals an arbitrary “gun-free zone” that does nothing to hinder criminals while leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless, and it ensures that citizens with varying commutes throughout their day, and of various economic means, are able to exercise their Second Amendment rights and defend themselves.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SCHEDULE and SUPPORT HB 1462.
