Today, the Senate voted 36-12 to pass Senate Bill 5006, an anti-gun bill that hijacks a suicide prevention measure. It will now go to the House for further consideration. Please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5006.
Senate Bill 5006 turns a suicide prevention measure into a prohibition on an individual’s Second Amendment rights. When individuals in crisis need help and take the initiative to admit they need help, turning around and branding them a prohibited person, involving law enforcement agencies, and imposing civil penalties is not the way to help them.
The NRA opposed SB 5006 throughout the legislative process in the Senate and testified in opposition in Committee.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5006.
