On Tuesday, the House General Rules Committee will hear House Bill 1708, to ensure law-abiding citizens are not stripped of their Second Amendment rights when utilizing public transit. Please click here to file witness forms to support HB 1708.
In addition, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1708.
House Bill 1708 removes the prohibition on carrying firearms for self-defense on public transit property and in public transit vehicles. Additionally, HB 1708 allows an individual to transport an unloaded and/or non-functioning firearm on public transit buses. Criminals routinely ignore the many gun laws on the books and gun free zone designations. By repealing this prohibition, it will ensure that law-abiding citizens are not forced to choose between utilizing public transportation and exercising their Second Amendment Rights.
Again, please file witness forms and contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1708.
