On March 29, the House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on the Senate’s post-Bruen gun control bill, Senate Bill 1 (“SB 1”). It is imperative that you contact the committee members NOW and urge them to oppose SB 1, which will place further burdens on law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen!
SB 1 further restricts where someone can carry a firearm by arbitrarily and drastically expanding the number of places labeled as “sensitive places” where concealed carry is prohibited. The bill’s sponsors admitted SB 1 is a direct response to the Supreme Court Case NYSRPA v. Bruen. This legislation is a “copy-cat” strategy, mimicking what New York and New Jersey did to lash out at the Supreme Court post-Bruen. Even its anti-gun sponsor admitted the original version of the bill was likely unconstitutional. However, the latest version still prevents carry in many public locations, and requires private property owners to explicitly allow carrying.
Anti-gun legislators are simply in denial that the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the right to carry. The court spoke resolutely and explicitly. Proponents have consistently failed to explain how disarming law-abiding, trained, and licensed individuals will increase public safety from criminals who do not obey the law.
Again, please use the link above to contact the committee members NOW and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE SB 1.
