Today, the House of Representatives may consider Senate Bill 185, to guarantee that Second Amendment rights remain protected during emergencies. This is likely to be the last day of the 2022 session and it is possible this important legislation could be amended into Senate Bill 16 and sent to the senate for concurrence.. Please contact your state representative and senator and ask them to SUPPORT Emergency Powers Legislation.
Senate Bill 185 declares firearm possession, transportation, carrying, commerce, and training range access, as well as hunting and fishing, to be life sustaining, essential activities. Both local and state government authorities are prohibited from infringing upon these rights under the guise of a declared emergency, either on a local or state level. Further, the legislation provides legal recourse for people who experience unjust infringements on these essential rights.
Again, please contact your state representative and senator and ask them to SUPPORT Emergency Powers Legislation.
