On February 2nd, the Senate Law and Justice Committee will hear Senate Bill 5232, the companion to House Bill 1144, which imposes a firearm permit requirement, creates a 10-day waiting period scheme, and allows indefinite delays on firearm transfers. Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5232.
Senate Bill 5232 requires an individual to ask government permission to exercise a constitutionally protected right. This bill impedes an individual's right to acquire firearms unless they complete official, sanctioned training every five years to obtain and maintain a permit. It also imposes an arbitrary ten-day delay on prospective gun owners taking possession of their firearms and makes this delay longer, or indefinite, if the state fails to complete background checks during that time.
Again, please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5232.
