Yesterday, the House Government Oversight Committee voted 8-5 to advance Senate Bill 215, the constitutional carry bill received from the Senate. It will now go to the House floor for further consideration. Please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT SB 215.
Senate Bill 215, as amended in committee, allows a law-abiding adult who is otherwise eligible to obtain a carry permit, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT SB 215.
