On Tuesday, February 15th, at 3:00pm, the Senate State Affairs Committee has scheduled a public hearing on NRA-backed Emergency Powers Legislation, Senate Bill 136. Please contact committee members to ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 136 and provide testimony yourself!
Senate Bill 136, sponsored by Sen. Myers, provides protections for gun stores, ranges, or any other entity that engages in the lawful selling or servicing of firearms, components, or accessories. This measure prevents the prohibition, regulation, or seizure of citizens’ Second Amendment rights during a declared State of Emergency.
SB 136’s companion bill, House Bill 179, is sponsored by Minority Leader Representative Tilton and is also active and being considered by the House of Representatives.
Again, please contact members of the Senate State Affairs Committee and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 136.
NRA Members and Second Amendment Supporters are encouraged to submit written testimony in support of SB 136 ahead of the hearing by emailing it to: [email protected]
