ILA | Mississippi House Approves Legislation to Improve State Firearms Preemption Statute

Gun News

Dear Mississippi NRA Member:

On Tuesday, the Mississippi House of Representatives passed House Bill 1215 by Rep. Shane Barnett (R-Greene, Perry & Wayne Cos).  The House approved this positive change to the state firearms preemption statute by a vote of 81-36.  The measure now heads to the Senate for consideration.

House Bill 1215 adds state agencies to the existing preemption statute that limits the authority of cities and counties to pass arbitrary restrictions on firearm possession. This is an especially important protection for enhanced and regular carry permit holders. Preemption statutes protect gun owners by ensuring there is uniformity of laws across the state

Please contact your state senators and urge them to support HB 1215.
